What would it be like to live in a world where you are considered abnormal to those who are above the norm? Jenna O’ Conner has been taught her whole life to hide from everyone. Never to let anyone to close enough to know that she would prefer a shotgun for her birthday over of a bouquet of roses. She’s been smothered by her over protective family so that no one learns what she truly is. Which 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. In a desperate attempt to live her own life away from the small town she was raised in, Jenna obtains her dream job as the newest member on the Wilmington Police Department’s SWAT Team. What she didn’t predict was that she would run into trouble her first day on the job, in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee. Who is also not human, but more like a wolf walking around in human skin. He’s determined to figure out exactly what Jenna is, which unbeknownst to him, could very well put her life in danger. He’s also determined to have her all to himself. As if that wasn’t enough for Jenna to deal with, bad news blows into town. A group of extremist Shifters who think humans are cattle and factions of Others worldwide should stay within their own species - never to intermingle. Chaos ensues. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, discovers things about herself that even she never thought was possible. Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about? Welcome to the real world.
Big bad bite was a good read, I would say it's a 2.5 rating in my book. There was alot of things I liked, and alot of things I really didn't like..

Let's start with the things I liked, I LOVED Adam, and the whole 'Alpha' thing he had going on with Jenna. He comes off crazy and possessive alot of the time...but at the same time it's kinda sexy since he is suppose to be that way. I liked the variety of paranormal beings in the novel, Demons, Vampires, Shifters that turn into either a wolf, bear, or Tiger. Overall though Adam was my favorite part of Big Bad Bite.

Now what I didn't like, was Jenna. Jenna is one bad ass, snarky lady. I love snarky characters, and I LOVE bad ass chicks. But Jenna annoyed me, and she annoyed me quite often. Her insults were repetitive, and felt forced as if the author would take any chance she got to have Jenna insult a male character. Also while I did love Adam and Jenna's relationship, I wish there would have been more times of them together and them not having sex, I'm not saying there was too much sex, just not enough non-sex time between them.

Besides not liking Jenna that much, I also had some trouble with the writing. I felt like a good portion of the book was explaining things to me, and while I am glad to understand how things work and know a bunch about the characters past (etc), I felt Big Bad Bite OVER explained, which really bored me. I wish there would have been more dialogue between the characters compared to all the explaining. But that is just my personal preference of writing, I know alot of other people love when books are extremely detailed. Also there was quite a few errors I noticed while reading, which doesn't bother me one bit, but I know it does for other people, so now you're warned.

Was this book bad? No not at all. I enjoyed Big Bad Bite. It just had some rough edges. I think if you're someone that enjoys urban fantasy, some very steamy sex scenes, and snarky characters, then this may be something you would enjoy.

Side note: I am currently not sure if I will read the sequel once it is released.

You may be moreover warranted that your choice of Burberry sit back and watch typically are not revived as a result of second-hand audemars piguet replica and even manufacturer's service contract will be promoted. A good time purchasing rugby tee shirts is without a doubt should they can be for sale. A good number of outlets would have an important rugby t shirt deal earlier than that rugby months starts off. In most cases over these revenues primarily that rugby tee shirts can be for sale. You should not be prepared to find out a lot of these cartier replica uk around the team's stadiums then again. That stores around the cartier replica sale never contain revenues and rate reductions on the product or service. Mainly because the items will be offered for sale below months. Once a product huge differences considering the power team, which includes power team tones, the still left product or service warrants extremely. Some other wonderful time purchasing an important t shirt is without a doubt after the months can be ceasing. That rado replica on a lot of these periods of time will surely carry on two or three days up to seven days. Once you need a lot of these rugby t shirt revenues, ensure that you understand which inturn tee shirts can be for sale. Then again have foresight on minding everything that some people ignored rado replica might definitely end up.
