Review requests currently closed

Our review request pile is currently closer to a mountain, and we're kind of afraid it's going to fall on our heads and bury us all in a massive book avalanche. Until we can get through the majority of the TBR list we have right now, we at MKR are currently unable to accept any new review requests.

Review: Big Bad Bite by Jessie Lane

What would it be like to live in a world where you are considered abnormal to those who are above the norm?

Jenna O’ Conner has been taught her whole life to hide from everyone. Never to let anyone to close enough to know that she would prefer a shotgun for her birthday over of a bouquet of roses. She’s been smothered by her over protective family so that no one learns what she truly is. Which is not human. Nor, is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community that is benevolent enough to share this world with the humans.

In a desperate attempt to live her own life away from the small town she was raised in, Jenna obtains her dream job as the newest member on the Wilmington Police Department’s SWAT Team. What she didn’t predict was that she would run into trouble her first day on the job, in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee. Who is also not human, but more like a wolf walking around in human skin. He’s determined to figure out exactly what Jenna is, which unbeknownst to him, could very well put her life in danger. He’s also determined to have her all to himself.

As if that wasn’t enough for Jenna to deal with, bad news blows into town. A group of extremist Shifters who think humans are cattle and factions of Others worldwide should stay within their own species – never to intermingle. Chaos ensues. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, discovers things about herself that even she never thought was possible.

Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about?

Welcome to the real world.

Oh, MAN. I LOVE THIS BOOK. I will admit that I was a little hesitant at first—a number of the shifter novels that I’ve read lately have been, well, bad. But Big Bad Bite is a spot-on success.

The characters: Jenna is, in a word, badass. She’s a tough broad, strong, but not inaccessible as a character. While I would have liked a little more of Adam—he just seemed to be there in the novel, and not quite as dynamic as Jenna—their romance works and I loved them. *cue music*

The plot: Now, I didn’t quite understand what was going on at first (I didn’t read the synopsis. Big surprise), but once the plot clicks into place, you get wrapped up in it. The dialogue is funny, oh, so funny. Like, I was laughing out loud so much that my S.O. left the room to go elsewhere.

Overall: I love this book. Seriously. It’s probably my new shifter novel obsession, actually. I can’t wait for the next books to come out. Go. GET. IT.

A recent college grad and lover of all things literary, MamaMia has been reading romance novels probably before it was appropriate for her to do so. She is addicted to her iPhone and all social media, and she is always on the prowl for good characters to fall in love with. She is currently on a contemporary romance kick, but is known to read about vampires, teens fighting bad guys, and Navy SEALs, to name a few.
