Title: Not My Wolf
Author: Eden Cole
Year of Publication: 2011
Length: 54 pages
First Line: “You can’t put it off forever, you,” Blaine reminded him.
Summary: As Alpha of his Rocky Mountains fenrir wolf pack, Corey has a lot on his plate. He thinks things are only getting better when his erotic dreams indicate he’s about to meet his mate. His Beta and best friend invites him on a double date, and Corey agrees, hoping this woman will be his one. To his shock and disbelief, he’s attracted to her brother instead—the big, muscular, overbearing man with a southern drawl. Corey refuses to believe that this cowboy is the one meant to be his mate, but the way his body reacts to one touch is making it hard for him to deny. Devin is aggressive, combative, and he won’t listen to any of Corey’s commands. They butt heads constantly, that is when Corey’s not trying to resist Devin’s hard body. But when Devin gets into trouble with a rival pack, Corey will move heaven and earth to get him back and claim him for his own.
Review: Thought this one was pretty fantastic.
I adored the world-building with the Fenrir wolves (descended from Norwegian Gods? A plot after my own heart) and the little camp in the woods that they all lived at with Corey as the Alpha Leader. It doesn’t appear as if Ms. Cole is writing anymore of this series but I would love to have this world expanded on.
All of the characters were a bit one-sided, but that is what I have come to except in erotica thus far. You take the bad with the good.
Sex scenes were awesome. Hot, desperate, and yummy. The last one had Blaine being a voyeur but Corey and Devin basically asked him to (sounds weird but it makes sense when you read it). One thing bugged me during the first sex scene between Corey and Devin, however. Corey was reluctant about Devin being his mate (which is basically Corey and the story’s plot) and Devin was on top of Corey, in bed, naked, spurring him on, telling him how much he wanted it (Corey was turned on, etc). What got me so riled up that made my ladyboner go away?
“What if I raped you right now?” he suggested.
No. Way. Did that actually get written? If my husband said that to me while we’re rutting against each other, I know what the hell I am doing next, and it is not letting him have sex with me three minutes after he says that.
That line was a total mood killer and inappropriate.
Worst part: The non-con/dub-con reference. That killed my ladyboner.
Best part: World-building!
Recommend For: Fans of gay erotica and werewolves.
