Wherever You Go, Were You Are
by Randa Flannery
GENRE: Paranormal Romance (Comedy)
The PI business has really gone to the dogs. Literally. Werewolf Lucy Lyle has just caught a ruff new case: sniff out the stalker preying on a couple of male strippers. Should be easy enough, except it seems that the only scent Lucy’s wolf is interested in is that of the scrumptious new client. Human client. Too bad they’ve sworn off humans for good. But like a dog with a bone, the harried PI is determined to solve the case, facing down the dangers of strip club locker rooms, waxing strips, law professors, smart mouthed police officers, and, worst of all, true love.
“Um…are you looking for someone?” he asked with a wary grin.
I nodded. “You.”
I could hear the pounding of his heart as it picked up the closer I got.
“And why is that?” he asked.
He had to have felt it, too, that moment in the club when our eyes met and the world stopped moving. But humans, I knew, needed reassurance and encouragement in these situations, needed to protect their ego so that they didn’t jump at the wrong signal. So I stretched a smile across my teeth.
“I think you know why,” I replied, injecting as much coy into my tone as a girl who didn’t generally do coy could manage.
His pulse skipped in my sensitive ears and my wolf shivered in response, impatient to get closer, to touch, to taste. His eyes widened slightly and I realized my eyes were starting to shift with the wolf’s sight rather than my own, which meant that they were probably glowing at him. It tended to happen when we got especially excited and she crept too close.Mine, we thought again, the word resounding loudly in my head.
I was across the space between us in less than a blink, my face turned up towards his, pulling those lips closer to mine. The quick caress of his breath was warm against my mouth.
And then there was nothing but pain.
This book is the second in the Magically Yours series and ends in an HEA. Lucy is a wolf shifter PI. Paranormals are living alongside humans in this version of the world. Lucy loves being a shifter, but finds dating human males a disaster. She is an Alpha female and few men can handle that fact. She is hired by Walsh, an accountant stripper to find out who is stalking him.
The mystery was very easy to figure out, but the means employed by a shifter were interesting. The olfactory sense played a huge role, as did the hierarchy of a wolf community, with an Alpha and a mate. The love story between Lucy and Walsh was very G rated, but cute. Walsh accepted Lucy for what she was., yet he could out alpha her at times.
I didn’t buy into the whole idea of straight-laced Walsh stripping in place of his twin. That part of the story didn’t take sense. His stalker could have noticed Walsh as he drove his twin home or something.
This story is appropriate for a young adult (16+) to adult audience. I am giving it 4 hearts. I am a reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock.
