THE WEREWOLF’S WIFE (4.5) by Michele Hauf: Werewolf lumberjack Ridge Addison decides to track down Abigail Rowan, the witch he married 13 years earlier in a drunken Vegas ceremony after saving her life, to ask her for a divorce. Abby’s rushing to save her 12-year-old son, who is being held hostage by someone who wants her to locate a specific vampire and hand him over. A sucker for a woman in distress, Ridge agrees to help Abby — as long as she’ll sign the divorce papers when they’re done. Hauf seamlessly combines witchcraft and werewolves in this exciting and fun tale. The story features excellent snappy dialogue between Ridge and Abby as well as plenty of sexual tension.

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of The Werewolf's Wife

Submitted by MichelleLOlson on October 5, 2012 - 1:56pm.

Our Review [by Michelle L. Olson - LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha]:
O.K yeah, it's no secret that I love Michele Hauf and gush about pretty much everything she's written, but this book really does deserve it. While not my personal favorite of Michele's thus far, it was an engaging and thoroughly enjoyable read.

Our hero, Ridge Addison, is like the Brawny papertowel guy (including the softer side) with Jason Statham's sexy action hero streak. If that isn't enough to get you to love him right there, then throw in some real to life insecurities, some hardships, and the fact that he's an Alpha willing to fight for what's his, and you have a sigh-worthy leading male that you'll follow just about anywhere.

Our heroine, Abigail, is a little hard to love at first admittedly. To sum it up, Ridge calls her the "Baddest Witch in the Midwest" and she sort of lives up to that name. She has some incredible layers herself, however, and once each of those is peeled away throughout the story and you get to see what makes her tick you can't help but start to love her. I loved her immediately because she's a tough leading lady, and that's one thing that I search for in my Paranormal Romance. No wimpy heroines for this reader! Abigail is that in spades, but she also has her reasons for her walls...

Together, they are a dynamic duo that tug at your emotions because you're just not sure they're right for one another. They each have their own lives - hopes and dreams, and it's not a forgone conclusion that being together will bring them the HEA that you want them both to have. The way Michele spins her tale however has you cheering for them despite (or in spite of!?) the potential hurdles, and left me cheering at the final outcome.

The Werewolf's Wife was another incredible release from Michele Hauf, and I would recommend it to ALL Michele Hauf fans, Paranormal Romance readers, fans of witches and werewolves, and anyone who likes their romance with some conflict (no love triangles or anything of that sort, just real life (and some preternatural) hurdles to overcome.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives The Werewolf's Wife 4 Skulls and cannot wait for whatever Michele has in store for us next!!
