"Forever Werewolf" [A Part of the Beautiful Creatures World] by Michele Hauf

My Book Summary : Growing up Alexis (Lexi) & Trystan (Tryst) both have felt left out from those around them based on who and what they were...

Tryst grew up in a loving family but since he is a werewolf with a vampire mother and a half-vampire/half-werewolf father, most werewolves are very leery about having him around them. Yet Tryst has always wanted to be a part of a pack. And if any female werewolf would have him, he would love to settle down with a nice werewolf and make a pack of his own.

Lexi grew up as a princess in her pack, since she is the principle's daughter. However, her life isn't perfect since she found out she is a "defective" werewolf, because when she reached puberty she never shifted then or since while everyone else from her pack did. Now because she's never shifted she knows that she'll probably never find or have a mate of her own.

They meet when Tryst stops by Lexi's pack to drop off a package to the principle, who is dealing with an unknown illness, and sparks initially fly between them. Soon after Tryst arrives at the pack things are shaken up and Tryst tries to help out anyway he can. While Lexi and Tryst get closer, will they be able to overcome the secrets and be able to put their pasts behind them? Or will everything fall apart?

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!!! This is a fun & sexy novel about loving who you are and being true to it! I loved Lexi & Tryst together!! They played off each other soo well!! In addition, the plot was great, especially with all of the twists!

With how many time Tryst mentioned his ice demon friend I really can't wait to find out what will happen to him! And I do hope things will work out between Lana and Liam, since Liam seems like such a good guy.

I recommend this novel to anyone who is a fan of Ms. Hauf, and to those who enjoy paranormal (a bit erotic) romance!!

Book Teaser(s) :
"Do you ever take those sunglasses off?"
"No."
Too quick, that answer. Protective. And practiced. "It's cool. You've got the whole Matrix thing going on."
"Matrix?"
Tryst twisted to face her. "The greatest movie ever made? You're kidding me, right?"
"I don't see many movies. I'm too busy. And if I have free time, I'd rather read."
"Serious? That is so wrong." ~ within Chapter 4
"What the hell?" He groped for hold and his hands slid down the side of---a bathtub?
Tryst sat upright in the freestanding old-fashioned bathtub. He still wore jeans, but someone had placed him here without his knowing or consent. Lexi poured another pitcher of warm water over him.
"What are you doing?"
"Cleaning you up. You're bleeding like a skinned cat, and you need to soak those bruised muscles to promote faster healing. If you slip out of your jeans, I'll run the tub."
"Slip out of my--- Why don't you leave me to do that? Hell, woman, take charge much?"
"Fine." ~ within Chapter 10
