What would it be like to live in a world where you were considered abnormal even to those who were above the norm?
Jenna O’Conner is not human, nor is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community that is benevolent enough to share this world with the humans. On her first day as the newewst member of the Wilmington Police Department’s SWAT Team, Jenna runs into trouble in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee, who is also not human. He is determined to figure out exactly what Jenna is, which could very well put her life in danger. Furthermore, he is determined to have her all to himself.
As if that weren’t enough for Jenna to deal with, a group of extremist Shifters who consider humans to be cattle and who think that factions of Others should stay within their own species—never to intermingle—come to town. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, she discovers things about herself that even she had never thought were possible.
Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about?
Welcome to the real world.
**Hotness Rating 3 out 5**
Big Bad Bite is the first book of the Big Bad Bite series by Jessie Lane and the first paranormal romance I’ve read in a while. I’ve kinda gotten away from the paranormal stuff. Boy, am I glad that I gave this story a chance. I really enjoyed Jenna and Adam’s story. Big Bad Bite doesn’t offer the same old bad guys and paranormal characters.
Jenna O’Conner is trying to fit in at the Wilmington Police Department. Well, at least fit in as well as she can. Let’s face it she doesn’t even really fit in with the supernatural community that she is a part of. It’s tough being the oddball amongst her own. She’s been raised with the fear that exposure could mean the death of her, but she’s tired of hiding and loves being a swat team member. Of course, on her first job she comes face to face with an alpha wolf who not only recognizes her other-ness, but grabs her attention in a way that no man has before.
Adam McPhee is an alpha wolf who is out to get justice for his pack. His efforts, however, were stopped by a SWAT team out to get their man. Justice may not have been served how he wanted it to be, but at least it would be served. All was not lost, though. Adam got a glimpse of the beautiful Jenna and she’s now on his radar.
For just a minute this couple dances around each other, but it doesn’t take long for them to be all in and then the sparks fly. When I say sparks fly they freaking fly. Can you say hot, hot, hot? Adam brings Jenna into his pack and all hell breaks loose. Jenna gets to see her uncle again and learns of a half brother. It doesn’t take long for her questions to be answered and the truth of her existence to be made known. To make matters even more complicated there is a group of rogue shifters out to wreak all kinds of havoc for the human race. Who else better to stop them than Adam, Jenna and friends?
The secondary characters in this book were just as fun and exciting as the primary. I absolutely loved Jenna’s mom and all her demon glory. I seriously laughed out loud. And when the Tiger pack made their appearance I was in seventh heaven. I loved Gage and his gang so much. Babushka. I don’t even know what to say about her. She could carry the whole book with laughs alone. I can not wait to read more about these shifters.
