Review: Paging Doctor Wolf (a 1Night Stand short) by Rebecca Royce

Still recovering, he agrees to meet with the woman Madame Eve found for him anyway. Werewolf Cara is disappointed when her date is cancelled at the last minute, but finds out a few weeks later why. She agrees to meet with him to help him to help him through all the changes he’s experiencing.

Thoughts:

Rebecca Royce certainly has a way with writing werewolves. She’s got plenty of world building in such a short time that catches anyone not familiar with her work up without any confusion. You can tell there have been other stories prior to this one, but it doesn’t hurt at all if you’ve not already read them, though it does peak your interest enough to want to go read them asap.

I enjoyed the dynamics between the characters; his sudden alpha side and her playful teasing side. I love a woman who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to voice it. I also like how, despite the intensity of his urges, he still wants to do right by her.

The only thing that bothered me was that even though it’s explained away as instinct, it all still feels a little too quick and easy. That being said, it all led up to a pretty adorable ending, so I can’t complain.

Memorable Quotes:

Open mouth, insert foot.

He scratched his chin before pulling her against him. “Stuck? How could I even place you and that word in the same sentence?”
“There are lots of wolf shifters. You might have preferred one of them—“
“Cara,” he interrupted. “Do you think there is something wrong with my wolf?”

Karma can be a bitch…in the best of ways.

With one stroke of his talented tongue, her knees nearly gave out beneath her.
“Easy there. Lots more to go with this. I want you upright.”
“Not sure I can comply.”
He looked up and raised an eyebrow. “What did you say to me last time? Oh right, yes you can.
“Damn it.” She had said that to him. “This is payback?”
“The best kind.” He growled. “So keep yourself standing.”

Final Thoughts:

The characters are tentative, yet blazing and it takes you on the same roller coaster ride they’re on as they explore each other and get everything figured out. A fun and sexy trip through the dynamics of werewolves, Paging Doctor Wolf is sure to leave you with a smile. Recommended!
