Wolf Gone Wild (Stay A Spell #1) by Juliette Cross [arc review]

Wolf Gone Wild, Juliette Cross
Will I ever not like a Juliette Cross book? No, no I won't! 
Wolf Gone Wild was the perfect mixture of shifter glory, humor and sexiness. 
Yes, 'shifter glory' is a thing. Go with it! 

I suppose I should give you all the Blurb before I start gashing over it, so here it is:

What's the worst thing that can happen to a werewolf? Unable to shift for three months, Mateo Cruz knows all too well. His wolf has taken up residence in his head, taunting him night and day with vividly violent and carnal thoughts. Convinced he's cursed, he needs the help of a powerful witch before he literally goes insane.

​Evie Savoie has always obeyed the house rules of her coven--no werewolves. They're known for being moody and volatile. So, when a distempered, dangerous werewolf strolls into the bar and almost strangles one of her late-night customers, she's ready to bounce him through the door. But the desperation in his eyes when he begs her to help him softens her heart and convinces her to bend the rules.

​What Evie doesn't know is that Mateo's wolf has a mind of his own. And now that she's in his sights, he wants only one thing. Her.

The Review: 4.5 Stars

Evie and Mateo were absolutely adorable together. They had my heart from beginning to end.
Evie is a quirky, geeky, and good hearted witch that can't say no to those who need. I loved all the wonderful geeky references Juliette added to the book. It doesn't matter if you are or are not a fan of comics and star wars and all the other things referenced in the book, you will love Evie's passion for it and be enthralled by it the same way Mateo was.
Mateo suffered -due to his wolf- a serious case of split personality! Mateo is soft, kind, caring, loving, careful with his words... his wolf is brash and focused on only two things: fighting and sex. And upon meeting Evie, fighting and Evie. 
I loved how different he is from his wolf to start and how much the two of them become one as the story progressed. It was both sweet and funny. 

Wolf shifters are my ultimate favorite. So there is a chance I am a tad itty bitty bias. I also think Juliette Cross is an amazing human being, so that might maybe perhaps make me a little bias too... but hey, I will try to be fair.
The book had one negative... sort of... kind of... I don't see it as a negative but a necessary evil... but fair is fair so here it goes: it was a tad slow and info dumping at times. I personally believe that is necessary when you start a new series, how else are the readers going to get acquainted with your new world?! But, yah... there were moments were I wanted the story to move along a little faster. 

And that is that. 
Juliette Cross never ceases to amaze me. She is a true master of her craft and I cannot wait to read what she comes up with next. A certain dark and quiet and hopefully moody-broody grimmer dating a rain of fu**ing sunshine would be interesting... I hope that is where she is going with it... 
*read that Juliette? hint-hint* hehe :) 
The other two couples that will hopefully also get their books are pretty obvious, and I already like them too. That vamp can have my number! 

Okay...I should stop now. You guys haven't read yet and have no idea what I am talking about now... In other words: when the book is out go fu**ing read so we can gash over it together!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
