Review by Lilac
Frustrated when none of the real newspapers will hire her as a reporter, Eliza Bradley takes the only job she can get – at a paranormal magazine. Her first assignment takes her to Fairbanks, Alaska to investigate the possibility that a werewolf has killed two local hikers.
Eliza forgets about the story, however, when she meets Hunter McCall, a local college professor and an expert on wolves. The man is an absolute hunk, and she finds herself spending more time in his bed than worrying about werewolves. That is, until she finds out that Hunter isn’t just an animal in the sack, he’s an animal out of it, too - of the werewolf variety! Talk about a complicated relationship!
But Eliza can’t dwell on Hunter’s little shapeshifting issues. There’s another werewolf out there with a taste for human blood, and she and Hunter are the only ones who can stop him.
Eliza Bradley’s new job with Paranormal Today has taken her to Alaska to investigate claims of werewolf activity in a small town. During the course of her investigation she meets wildlife expert, Hunter McCall. Instantly attracted to the handsome professor, Eliza suspects there is more to him than meets the eye. Hunter, a werewolf, finds himself dealing with a rogue werewolf who has been killing people. He doesn’t need the distraction or complications that Eliza brings, however, he finds himself attracted to the young reporter. But if she learns his secret he risks not only losing her and but having her reveal everything to the world. As they spend time together (in and out of bed), Hunter wants nothing more that to keep Eliza safe and with him for good.
Despite the cold climate of the setting, Animal Attraction definitely heats up the pages with its steamy romance. The attraction and chemistry between Eliza and Hunter is instant and enough to warm anyone up on a cold night. As their relationship progresses and Eliza learns more about Hunter, the two grow closer and I couldn’t wait to see how Eliza would handle the truth about Hunter.
Not only did I enjoy the scorching romance of the story, but I also enjoyed the paranormal aspects. The twist behind the rogue werewolf was a nice surprise and I enjoyed watching Eliza and Hunter work to solve the mystery.
Animal Attraction is a wonderful paranormal romance full of passion, heat, and romance.
