A Werewolf in Manhattan: Wild About You, Book 1 | [Vicki Lewis Thompson]

A Werewolf in Manhattan: Wild About You, Book 1

Emma Gavin writes best-selling novels about werewolves, but that doesn't mean she believes in them-and she certainly doesn't think she'll meet one. But that's exactly what happens when her books catch the attention of a rich and powerful pack of Manhattan Weres who have kept their existence hidden for centuries. Alarmed by the accuracy of her novels, they're determined to find out if a renegade is acting as her informant.

Publisher's Summary

Emma Gavin writes best-selling novels about werewolves, but that doesn't mean she believes in them - and she certainly doesn't think she'll meet one. But that's exactly what happens when her books catch the attention of a rich and powerful pack of Manhattan Weres who have kept their existence hidden for centuries. Alarmed by the accuracy of her novels, they're determined to find out if a renegade is acting as her informant.

Aidan Wallace, the pack leader's son and heir, knows he's the wolf for the job, but when he gets close to Emma, they are both surprised by an attraction too strong to deny. To surrender to it, Aidan will have to risk everything -i ncluding the security of the pack he's sworn to protect.

    "Fun Lighthearted listen!"

    This was a great summertime read, lighthearted, and fun read. The narrator did a great job and there were some laugh out loud moments. If you are looking for a good paranormal book with a fun twist this is it!

    "Just OK."

    Story line was weak, and the reader wasn't that strong either. If you're looking for a nice book to listen to on a lazy Sunday afternoon, this is it. Not very stressful or exciting, just OK. I do like a bit more suspense and erotic sex in my wolves, but you can't win them all. I'll try the next in the series to see if it gets any better.

    "What a disappointment"
    What disappointed you about A Werewolf in Manhattan?

    Emma was a Jeckyl/Hyde adult/5 year old. She had tantrums, was selfish and was extremely stupid most of time. I felt bad for Aiden who was stuck with her because of her "scent". I was looking forward to getting this whole series based on the good reviews I read on Amazon, but I truly don't understand how anyone liked this story. It could have actually been good if not for the main character. Sorry.


    Has A Werewolf in Manhattan turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not the genre, just this author.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Abby Craden?

    Yes, she did a good job. She had a nice voice.


    What character would you cut from A Werewolf in Manhattan?

    Emma


    Any additional comments?

    I forced myself to listen to the whole thing (I like closure), I would not recommend this to anyone else. I was very disappointed, I really was hoping this would be a good series, but based on this book I will not buy the next.

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    Story
    "Eh....."

    Setting: contemporary Manhattan
    Genre: Paranormal romance
    Everything about this was average. Probably, if you're totally enamored with this kind of plot, it may be tolerable. Or not, depending on your previous experience. I wouldn't recommend it as an introduction to the genre, because it may turn you off before you find the really good paranormal stories, both light and keep-the-lights-on scary. I got it because there were no more Molly Harper books to bring out the laughs, and I wasn't in the mood for a spine-tingler. It may have been a buy-one-get-one, so I had incentive to try it. Whatever...
    Worth the credit? Nah. If you want it, get it on sale.

    "a light read"
    Would you try another book from Vicki Lewis Thompson and/or Abby Craden?

    Yes


    What about Abby Craden’s performance did you like?

    Her performance was ok it wasn't bad it wasn't moving it was just ok


    Could you see A Werewolf in Manhattan being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not at all


    Any additional comments?

    This book is just a simple light read something to listen to in the background if you miss a chapter or two you're not missing much

    "GUILTY PLEASURE...x.x"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is interesting and intriguing. You get wrapped in the ideas of werewolves and their interactions with humans in this modern romance. It has you wonder what will happen next and have you half yell at the girl to get on with it. Overall everything works out, but I think what got me the most was the author's view on how werewolves can pass in this world. How they grow and adapt and...how they are insatiable. I hate knowing that I got this book but after listening to the sample found it hard to resist. You get attached to the characters and learn their nuances to the point were you want to invite yourself over to their parties. Fair warning for anyone into Syfi, or romance, this one will sink it's grip and as all guilty pleasures are, hard to say pause to. ;)

    Story
    "Fun, but doesn't have an ending"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It was mostly satisfying, and the tension between the leads was great. For someone looking for a no-substance read, this was well-written enough to warrant a recommendation.


    If you’ve listened to books by Vicki Lewis Thompson before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first


    What does Abby Craden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice for Emma was a little over the top, but she brought life to the scenes and characters.


    Do you think A Werewolf in Manhattan needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, because the major plot was left unresolved. As soon as the characters got together, the author decided no other resolution was needed.

    Story
    "Why?"

    I have found many of the Paranormal books to be Good stories with a number of unneeded sex sceens thrown in. This book was the other way around. One long bad sex sceen with a little bit of story thrown in.

    Very little to endear the characaters to the reader. No in depth personalities. How can one have romance without a personality?

    There's quite a bit of decent paranormal stuff out there (Molly Harper, Charlaine Harris, MaryJanice Davidson, ...). Use your credits for those ....
