Can a woman bitten by a werewolf choose not to become one herself?

Ella is not persuaded by rich, handsome, and (unfortunately) neutered werewolf, Robert Colbert that his bite need change her life. Despite her annoyance with his arrogance, she agrees to let him take her to dinner if he’ll let her interview him for her gossip magazine LoveLifeStyle about his previous job as a designer/host for a reality TV show.

Trying to convince her to accept her werewolf fate before the rapidly approaching full moon, Robert finds himself falling in love with the stubborn bitch-to-be. But with some dark secrets of her own and a scarier suitor on her horizon, Ella may prove to be the one woman able to resist Robert’s wolfish charm.

The sequel to JUST ONE BITE  about Robert’s brother, Lucas, this steamy tale of mismatched lovers will have you dreaming of catching your own werewolf lover. Playing fetch? Not so much…

It all started with a family portrait or what looked like a photo shopped picture of a group of wolves facing the camera on a moonlit night — depends on your perspective… or your species which you’d see it as.  At the auction where Ella had won the whopping $8 bid it was an unusual picture of wolves and maybe the frame was worth the bid.  To Robert it was a family portrait, with all their names on the back of the photo… and something he simply had to get back before a human read the names and started putting questions out there about his wealthy family.

Robert was determined to get that photo back so it seemed like a perfectly logical idea to shift to his wolf, sneak into Ella’s garage and wait til she left for work… only it didn’t quite work out that way.  Since her security was good enough that he couldn’t get into the house he had no choice but to wait for her return, only he fell asleep.  Awakened by a kick to the side, Robert instinctively snapped at the offender.  Only… it was Ella stumbling into his wolf in the dark and he’d just bitten a human which means trouble, big trouble.

Sometimes finding your mate is nothing more than a lucky coincidence.  Too bad that Ella didn’t immediately see it that way too.  While trying to get the photo back he’d ended up giving the lady an interview, asked for a date and was quickly falling under her spell.  He tried to toss it off as simply apologizing for what he’d done and explain that she was about to turn into a werewolf but he’d be there to help her through it.  Poor Robert, things definitely aren’t going according to his plan – especially when Ella insists that she’s not about to turn into a werewolf, but she wouldn’t mind the date or the interview.

First Bite Is The Deepest is such a fun, charming romp.  I dare anyone not to give out a few chuckles while reading Robert and Ella’s romance.  At times a comedy of errors, at other moments an intense sensuous romance, this story hits that sweet spot where you get to laugh as well as swoon over a couple at odds with each other, even when they’d rather be otherwise occupied.  I have to admit that just like Robert in some ways, I didn’t pick up subtle hints either.  And in a way I’m glad I didn’t because the rest of the story was such fun with a different type of twist added.

We also get a chance to meet up with Lucas and his lovely mate once again.  Anna is as funny as always and I’m quite glad to see that she will get her story told next.

If you’re in the mood for a funny, sexy laugh out loud romance, then have I got the book for you.  I’d definitely recommend this one for any Paranormal Romance reader.  It’s a fun romp that will keep you in chuckles.  And sometimes, that’s exactly what we need.
