Baby, I'm Howling for You Reviews

  • Carol [Goodreads Addict]

    Baby, I’m Howling for You is book one in the Alphaville series by Christine Warren. I first read Christine’s Gargoyle series so I was so excited to read this brand new series. Alphaville, or Alpha, Washington, is a small town in the Pacific Northwest, where shifters go that are alone, damaged, or just different. It’s a place where they can go where they know they will be accepted, no questions asked, and find a pack amongst the towns people, a mixture of all different shifters who come together

    Baby, I’m Howling for You is book one in the Alphaville series by Christine Warren. I first read Christine’s Gargoyle series so I was so excited to read this brand new series. Alphaville, or Alpha, Washington, is a small town in the Pacific Northwest, where shifters go that are alone, damaged, or just different. It’s a place where they can go where they know they will be accepted, no questions asked, and find a pack amongst the towns people, a mixture of all different shifters who come together to form a close knit community.

    Alpha is where Renny Landry was trying to make it to when her car ran out of gas. Renny was on the run, had been for months, from a man who wanted her, Geoffrey Hilliard, and who wouldn’t stop until he had her. He and his pack of minions, all coyote shifters, found her wherever she tried to hide and her last hope was to find refuge in Alpha. Renny is a beautiful red wolf shifter.

    Let me warn you that this book starts out right from the first page action packed. Don’t think you will start the book and read a few pages and then put it down. You will not be walking away.

    Renny’s attempt to get away from her pursuers takes her right into the yard of the reclusive Mick Fischer. She is injured and certain to be caught when Mick rescues her. Mick escaped to Alpha eight years ago when his mate was killed. Mick’s animal is a wolf. As soon as he carried Renny into his house, Mick’s wolf was awake and prowling. He recognized that Renny was their mate. But this is impossible. Wolves didn’t mate a second time. It was a one time thing for wolf shifters. Wolves rarely survived when they lost their mates and he couldn’t figure out why he was even still alive. Maybe this is why, because Renny was also his mate. The mate he lost was his past, but Renny was now his future.

    This book was amazing. It was fast paced as Mick, Renny, and the authorities of Alpha come together to try to take down the pack of coyotes. The chemistry between Mick and Renny was sizzling hot. When two wolves are newly mated, they go through a sort of honeymoon phase and believe me, these two made every use of their time together. But the threat of Renny’s stalker was still hanging over their heads. Everyone in the town was at risk until they could be caught.

    I love this little town. It is such an adorable, eclectic mix of residents and they all come together when one of their own is in need, as they did for Renny. There are so many wonderful secondary characters in this book that I look forward to hearing more about. The next book in the series is called Your Lion Eyes and I can’t wait.

    I liked it, it was enjoyable but it had it fluctuated in keeping my attention. Renny, is on the run from a crazy coyote and his pack.

    Baby, I’m Howling For You by Christine Warren is the first full length novel in the Alphaville series. There is a prequel novella that opened up the series that came before this book but it’s not really necessary to have read that to enjoy this installment of the series. The novella simply introduced readers to the town of Alphaville where shifters have set up a safe haven for all types of shifters to come and live in harmony. The main characters are different between the books though so that each have a new couple of shifters that find they are mates.

    In this book Renny Landry is on the run from a stalker that has sent a group to capture her and puts all her faith that she will find Alphaville and it will offer her safety. As she runs from her pursuers she finds a cabin outside of the town that is occupied by Mick Fischer just in time for Mick to save Renny from the attackers. Renny soon finds herself surrounded by the good citizens of Alphaville who are determined to help protect her from her stalker as she and Mick also find that they are fated to be mates.

    Christine Warren certainly made Baby, I’m Howling For You a entertaining read by throwing in a bit of danger into this romantic fantasy read. There was always something happening in the story from the bad guys attacks to the steamy moments that come from a newly mated shifter couple. Renny and Mick were great main characters that I liked along with the other shifters in the town helping them along. I completely enjoyed this addition to the series and look forward to seeing more of the residents from Alphaville in the future installments of the series.

    I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    I liked Alphaville as the town of misfits, all the characters were well developed and fun to read. Renny's plight as the single red wolf desperate to run and hide from her obsessive stalker also made for a very adventurous story. I loved her character she was fiercely brave and independent.

    Mick was very much the controlling alpha male, he had survived the loss of his first mate only to discover years later that Renny is also his intended mate.

    He is more than surprised by that when he rescues the wounded wolf but it doesn't take him long to recover and claim Renny as his own.

    Engaging plot and I was absorbed from start to finish.

    was that it was too long and overly descriptive. I didn't see anything new in this paranormal romance and waited unsuccessfully for it to suck me in. Unfortunately, it was overly descriptive and each plot point, conversation and sex scene lost me halfway through it. I'm reading about how he wants to kill her stalker and by the end of the paragraph, I've planned what I'm having for dinner.

    I even skimmed the sex scenes...THE HORROR!! Sure, I know they're newly mated and they can't control themselves, but it was the same sex over and over and over again. I didn't feel like the couple progressed past their initial lust. Their "love" was more a tick in the box of what a mated couple is supposed to feel.

    Like I said, the characters and the storyline were interesting and I did finish the story. I loved the people of Alphaville and what they stood for. Meeting Molly, Zeke and Jaeger kept me coming back for more and in some ways, their "scenes" was the highlight for me. It's just not my favourite style of writing. I have a friend who is horrified that I mostly read stories that take a day to read. He loves the overly descriptive ones that take days or even weeks to read and is CONVINCED I'm missing out. So, definitely don't judge this book on my opinion alone. Check out other reviews and you may find that

    is perfect for you.

    When I first noticed this book on NetGalley I skipped right past it due to the dreadful corny title but then I noticed all the reviews were 4 and 5* so I decided to give it a try.

    I really should have stuck with my first impression. I don’t know if it was me or the book but it just didn’t work for me, it dragged and took me days and days to read in fact I ended up skimming just to get to the end.

    I didn’t particularly like the writing style and there wasn’t enough story to fill the pages.

    Basically Renny is on the run from a dangerous stalker and she’s heading to Alpha, a safe place for shifters where she meets her mate, settles into town and her stalker arrives you know how it goes from here.

    So you either love a book or you don't but I was really bummed that this book didn't instantly pull me in as much as I wanted it to. Shifter and PNR books usually rate high for me because of the fantasy the author weaves into the story. It's romance with a heavy dose of magic and it has more freedom to be OTT and dramatic.

    So you either love a book or you don't but I was really bummed that this book didn't instantly pull me in as much as I wanted it to. Shifter and PNR books usually rate high for me because of the fantasy the author weaves into the story. It's romance with a heavy dose of magic and it has more freedom to be OTT and dramatic.

    The reason I didn't rate this higher is that it hit on one of my ultimate pet peeves in romance. The dead wife trope. In shifter romances it's especially tricky because the big draw for me is the true/forever mate concept. I love reading about alphas that find their one true love and basically live to protect and care for their other halves. It kind of weakens it's appeal if the one true mate is no longer the "one" because now you can have more than one?!

    In

    we're told countless times, how important mates are, how instant the connection is and ultimately how there's only one mate out there for you. Well, our H, Mick has loved (100% no reservations LOVED) his first mate, Beth. She ends up dying and eight years later has closed himself off from everyone and everything. He is very much in love with his dead wife still and it's almost painful to watch how he constantly pushes Renny away every time he feels himself drawn to her.

    And the awkwardness doesn't stop there. No, Renny also happens to strongly resemble his dead wife, while she's in wolf form. When he first catches a whiff of Renny, even her smell reminds him of Beth. It's like, at every turn, Renny played second fiddle to Beth. But what put that last nail in this coffin was the mate mark.

    * * * * * * * * * *

    * * * * * * * * * *

    During the most intimate moment between two mated shifters and even then Renny has to share the moment with the ghost of his 1st mate! I just couldn't do it anymore. Yes, towards the very end, Mick finally admits that his connection to Renny is stronger than what he felt for Beth but by than it was a little too late for me. I've said it before, H+h+ghost does not a good romance make. I don't do love triangles, even if one part of this equation is spectral in nature.

    I liked Renny, she wasn't a doormat, she had self respect and wasn't a sniffling martyr but I wish she wasn't so accepting of Mick and his hot/cold attitude towards her. She was a better person than me because there is no way I'd be okay with sharing my man with a ghost or so easily forgiving him his crap behavior towards her. It plain ol' sucked that Renny's first (and probably only) mate treated her like crap rather than cherishing her like he was supposed too. Renny made way to many concessions for Mick and Mick never convinced me that he chose Renny. It was all too convenient for him. I mean, at one point, he actually felt shame for having feelings for Renny because he felt it was a betrayal of Beth!

    There is a lot of action and suspense with the danger that follows Renny to Alphaville and sort of saved the story for me. I also really liked the secondary characters, especially the brother sister duo that is Molly and Zeke.

    I guess for fans of Christine Warren this will be a hit and for others who don't share the same triggers as me. For the safety gang though, it might be a pass.
