#Book #Review: So I Married a Werewolf (Seattle Wolf Pack, Book 3) by Kristin Miller

Carter Griffin, enforcing officer for the Seattle Wolf Pack, has a problem. He's been offered the promotion of his dreams…if he can find a wife to prove he's over his playboy ways. But Carter's already walked the matrimonial road and bought the stinkin' T-shirt. Besides, a werewolf only gets one fated mate. Been there, done that.

All werewolf dog trainer Faith Hamilton wants to do is earn enough green stuff to put her younger brother through college. Okay, okay, so she also totally wants Carter, her sexy next-door neighbor, to look at her as more than a friend. It's too bad size 12 and plain isn't his type. At all.

The two friends strike a deal to help one another out. They must face a variety of challenges from a psycho ex-girlfriend to a Yorkie with a shoe fetish...and that pesky problem of only having one-fated mate in a lifetime. Will a relationship ruin their friendship…or spark a love neither anticipated?

My Review:

So I Married a Werewolf is the third novel in Kristin Miller's Seattle Wolf Pack series and it is just a superb as the first two books.  For a refresher, the author combines the normal werewolf/bonded mate scenario but with a twist.  The female bonded mates are call Luminaries.  It is assumed that each would only comes across one Luminary in their lifetime - if they manage to find one at all.

Unlike the first two books in the series that took a normal, everyday human and transformed her into the object of lust and desire for a local werewolf, this book pairs a female werewolf (who was bitten) with a male werewolf (born as such).  Faith and Carter aren't your typical mates - they are joined together, each with a goal in mind.  Faith needs to help out her brother with college and Carter needs a mate in order to secure a promotion.

  Faith and Carter are fantastically written main characters.  Their unconventional marriage arrangement might be handy in certain aspects of their lives but it takes a toll on both of them, especially Faith, emotionally.  In fact, the emotionally driven passages in this book have been written realistically so I suggest you have tissues handy.  I feel bad for Faith because she loves Carter but doesn't feel like she turns his head the way a skinny woman would.  There are so many times that conversations between her and Carter go haywire and you can't help but feel her self-esteem drop another notch.

The attraction between Carter and Faith is there but when you have a man insisting that he only gets one Luminary, it takes him a long time to realize just what he has with Faith.  Carter is determined to keeps things all business because he doesn't want to ruin their friendship.  The road to their happily-ever-after is not straight or smooth.

So I Married a Werewolf is a wonderful book.  It has extremely tender moments but is full of action, drama, and suspense.  I was drawn in from the very beginning and my interest never waned.  Both Faith and Carter are likable and it's easy to relate to them.  I highly recommend the entire Seattle Wolf Pack series!
