Book Review: An American Werewolf In Hoboken

An American Werewolf In Hoboken (Wolf Mates #1) 25508237

Re-Release / Goodreads

Hilariously funny, An American Werewolf In Hoboken takes you on a laugh-out-loud roller-coaster ride from beginning to end as Max Adams, one strong alpha male, finds himself at the mercy of a woman who thinks he’s a big, fluffy dog. Dakota Cassidy takes you on an erotic journey as Max seduces his mate, who just happens to be his human owner, at least according to the local dog pound. Dog by day, man by night, things can’t get any more complicated…or can they? An American Werewolf In Hoboken is Book 1 in Dakota Cassidy’s Wolf Mates series. This is one romantic comedy you don’t want to miss.

Wooing a life mate can be hard enough for a wolf, wooing one while under the threat of a curse even more so.

Wooing a mate while pretending to be her dog? Nearly impossible.

After being drugged and captured by Animal Control, Max Adams is on Hoboken’s doggie death row when his life mate adopts him, takes him home, and promptly names him Fluffy. While JC, in all her new-pet-owner-ness, feeds “Fluffy” vile kibble, dresses him in mortifying dog couture, and schedules to have his manhood removed, Max’s human side gets to know JC. Especially in the biblical sense.

Hopefully well enough to make her fall madly in love, mate with him under the full moon, and move with him to Cedar Glen to live happily-ever-after forever and ever amen. And fast. Because the curse comes with a deadline…and the clock is ticking.

My Review                                            5 Stars  small star 1

First thing I want to say is I love this author. Dakota Cassidy has a lot of great books out. She is extremely funny. So when I got the email for a free book, I downloaded it right away. I have to admit that this book did not let me down. It was awesome! It was so much fun to read.
In this book, which is the first in the series, Max Adams is a werewolf on a mission to find his life mate to fulfill the prophecy before it is too late. If he can’t find his life mate by the next full moon he will die. JC is a woman out to adopt a dog to fill her life with joy, since her love life is down the tubes. She adopts a huge dog that no one can identify. Some say a German Shepherd mixed with Wolf. Then Max moves in next door and is trying to woo JC. Will Max convince JC she is his life mate? Will JC walk away forever?
This book grab your attention from the first page. It is funny, sarcastic, sexy as hell and sad. You could say it is a roller coaster ride. I could not put it down. It was so exciting. Dakota has a way of writing that just grabs your attention and gives you the wow factor. Her stories are smooth and flow easily. Her characters are quirky fun and interesting. You have to admire Max and the decisions he makes. He is such a strong character. Did I mention he is hot as hell. Sexy werewolf. Who doesn’t want to read that? I know I doooooo. Even though the sex scenes are very descriptive, it does not take away from the actual story. In other words it is not just sex. If you want a cozy fun read, then this book is for you. I highly recommend it. I have already bought books 2-5. starting tonight on book 2. Stay tuned peeps for another awesome review for Dakota. Whoot Whoot.

“What’s your doggie name, honey?” “Mom…” “Oh, c’mon, kiddo—we’ll look back on this someday and laugh together. Promise. Now cough it up. We’ll laugh for you until you’re ready to see the funny.” He couldn’t help but smile. It was pretty funny if you looked at it from the other side. “Fluffy.”

“So, riddle me this, Smells Like Unwiped Butt-am I looking for a miracle, or are you house trained?”
