Cover Description:

What do you get when you mix a vampire hunter, who happens to be an FBI Agent and my boss, add a fallen angel, that’s me, and a genius criminal profiler with secrets? 

You get the Monster Squad! We hunt monsters and other whatnots.  Add to the mix an extra hot alpha wolf, a mysterious town with a serial killer on the loose, and you have total mayhem.

 I’m Izzy Cooper and I’m sporting a pair of black wings. To earn redemption, I had to return to my life as a fallen angel, and work tirelessly to bring down bad guys.   It’s a good thing I have some help in the form of my guardian demon, who happens to be as hot as he is devious.  But that isn’t the only guy problem I have to deal with.

 I have a new job with the Atypical Crimes Management Unit of the FBI, which happens to be based in my hometown of Storm Cove.   Returning to Storm Cove means facing Elias Moreland, who just happens to be my high school crush, and the sexiest guy I’ve ever met. Too bad he’s also a werewolf.

 Saving my soul, while protecting my heart from an extra hot werewolf isn’t easy, when being wicked is a natural element of my nature.

WARNING: Izzy Cooper is a nice girl, but she can also be an opinionated bitch from Hell. After all, she is a fallen angel. On occasion, she likes to play with hot guys who have hotter than hell bodies. This story is not for the faint of heart, or those easily offended by sarcasm, dark mystery, and hot romance. You have been warned.

Read on for my thoughts on Kissing The Werewolf.  No true spoilers, promise.

Kissing The Werewolf was such a hilarious, snarky joyride for me.  Izzy is a natural born witch who gets herself killed in, let’s be honest here, the stupidest fashion.  Given a chance to return to life… a life slightly altered is the premise of the Izzy Cooper stories.

Izzy is a badass, she’s also full of sarcasm and snark and I absolutely adored her.  Izzy gets herself assigned to an FBI secret agency (can we hum the X-Files theme here?) of paranormal investigators with power.  And just about everyone in the small island town of Storm Cove has some supernatural ability or connection.

When grizzly murders begin to happen, and many of the witches on the island begin to lose their powers Izzy and her unit step in to investigate.  What they find is actually even more questions than answers.

And we are off on an amazing journey with Izzy in the lead in this truly fun and captivating start to the Izzy Cooper stories.  I won’t spoil your fun of discovery by giving away much.  Except to say… if you love monsters, if your favorite pastime is late night horror movie reruns – the classics, then you will absolutely love Kissing The Werewolf.

I returned this one to my Kindle Unlimited account and immediately downloaded the next story – which I can’t wait to get started on.  This is Paranormal Romance with a laugh track and total snark.
