Book Review: Pack By Jeaniene Frost

Under Her Skin
By Jeaniene Frost;
Meljean Brook;
Ilona Andrews

Three short stories of paranormal romance!
“Pack” brings you a tale of a lost hiker and her encounter with some very frightening–and sexy–wolves. A female werewolf helps a sheriff track down a killer “In Sheep’s Clothing.” A woman must repay her family’s debt to a shapeshifting magician in “Grace of Small Magics.”

Please note: Each of these stories previously appeared in print in The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance. This is a collected e-book edition of Ilona Andrews’, Jeaniene Frost’s, and Meljean Brook’s contributions.

(This story has been re-released as it's own book and audio book.)
Available At:
| Amazon | B&N | Kobo | iBooks |

Book Review:

* Update: As of Sept 2016 I've listened to the audio book of this story (it has been re-released as it's own book) and it was amazing!

The following review is of the original version of the short story Pack By Jeaniene Frost published in the Under Her Skin Anthology.

This is a review of Pack By Jeaniene Frost ONLY.

What a cute story! It really had depth. I was disappointed to find out it was just a short story with no future novel scheduled for release in the near future.

I loved Marlee. She was head strong when it was called for, but could still see reason when she was out of options. Her life wasn't going to well because of all of the impossible expectations she's set for herself. So when she gets lost on a hike and is attacked, to her, that's the all time worst possible thing that could happen to her period.

Daniel was a cutie pie -teehee-. He was the not so typical alpha male. I said "not so typical" because he actually showed an emotion other then anger and lust. He showed that he actually cared for the well being of Marlee aside from the bedroom (which never happened in this novel - Update: In the updated version of the story it does happen.).
I would love a follow up novel to this short story. The author did post an explanation as to why she wouldn't consider writing a sequel to this, but she did express interest in writing about wolves in another world in a future novel. I guess that'll have to be enough!

Favorite Quotes:

"We'll kill for it was left unsaid, but I heard that loud and clear in the subtext."

"Now I knew what a piece of meat felt when it was dangled above a crocodile pit."

"The wolf was me stripped of all my pretense, and it knew, unequivocally, that Daniel was mine."
