Big Bad Bite Tour: Review/Giveaway


Genre: Paranomal Romance


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.


 An enthralling read that had my interest captured from start to finish. I had read a young adult read (The Burning Star) by this particular author previously and was impressed by it, so when I heard that an adult read was up and coming, I was excited to get reading as I am more of a fan of the adult genre. It was just as smooth a read as the YA book was. It was packed full of information, which at times was a little tedious but didn’t affect the read overall. The characters left off the page and I liked the shifter/demon angle, of course I won’t go into it much more than that, I wouldn’t want to ruin it.

I really enjoyed Jenna, she was everything I love in a female character and had some alpha characteristics which were great. She was powerful and had some sassiness to her which made for some great moments and situations; I particularly liked the banter between her and Kent at times, she knew just how to push his buttons.

Adam was the perfect balance of alpha male, strength and intimidation when it was needed but softness and caring when it came to Jenna. Sometimes you can find alphas that come across as obnoxious and controlling, but that was not the case with Adam at all. There wasn’t a lot of romance or steamy scenes between the pair and I do wish there was perhaps just a little more but with all the action going on and the plot it isn’t detrimental to the read.

Overall this book lived up to my expectations and left me wanting to read more, I certainly hope there are more books planned in the series! Even if it isn’t a continuation from Adam and Jenna’s story, it would still be great to read about some of the supporting characters, such as Logan or Kent finding a happy ending.

Oooooh, this looks like a winner. The characters sound great. Adam sounds like he has some major book boyfriend qualities. Something about this reminds me of Mercy Thompson which makes me want to read this even more. Great review. Thanks again hon :)
