4.5 STAR REVIEW: SIN CITY WOLF: HOWL by January Bain

Sin City Wolf Howl Banner

The Description

Never get between a wolf and his mate…

Billionaire. Casino owner. Tall, dark and deadly. Cristaldo Luceres is a potent force and a dangerous wolf to cross. Head of the House of Luceres, he’s used to fighting—literally—off any threat from rival houses. Wealth and women are his, but the one thing missing from his life is his mate.

Cristaldo’s on full alert when trouble comes to town in the beautiful shape of one Miss Everly Affini. The talented musician won a shot to play at the coveted Nero’s in Cristaldo’s Glittering Palace… and she could be the one, Cristaldo’s Forever Mate.

One problem is that she doesn’t think so—and isn’t shy about telling him—and another is that Rocco, an enforcer for the House of Ribelle, the Luceres’ sworn enemies, thinks she’s destined for him. Oh, and it’s the most powerful Super Blood Wolf Moon of the century, meaning chaos is unleashed.

Too bad. Once Cristaldo has a scent of his Forever Mate, he’ll fight for her…to the death if necessary. Everly doesn’t stand a chance.

The Review

SinCityWolfHowl-Review-FBFrom the first page, author January Bain laid the foundation of a very tempting main character. Not only is Cristaldo Luceres a billionaire, but he is also a werewolf. Add in the small detail that he is also the Alpha of his pack and it’s evident that he’s going to be a dominant character. Every detail at the beginning of the story helps to enhance that impression. He’s definitely not someone who is likely to put up with any resistance.

The introduction of the female lead character is where the author truly excels. Everly Affini is a woman used to making her own decisions. When she and Cristaldo butt heads, the sparks start to fly. All Everly is interested in is performing with her band at Cristaldo’s casino. She rejects him at every turn, but she fails to realize her life is about to change. Their push-and-pull is engaging, yet somewhat frustrating for readers who can see the entire storyline. I found myself wanting to shake Everly a few times so she’d be less of a brat.

While the heat between the two is palpable, so, too, is the sense of danger. The author delivers a twist to the storyline that prevents this from being human falls for werewolf and lives happily ever after. Time is of the essence, which means if Cristaldo wants His Forever Mate, it might cost him everything.

I found this to be an excellent first start in the series and look forward to more from the author.

REVIEW AUTHOR

Amy Wilson
My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
