Missy Roper's fantasies have revolved around Graham Winters since the moment they met. But the imposing leader of the Silverback werewolf clan always seemed oblivious to Missy's existence. At least he was, until Missy collides with him at a party and then abruptly runs away—arousing Graham's interest...and wild desires.

This book was a lot of fun in the beginning. The style of it really reminded me of Shelly Laurenston. The plot was fluffy and the book's focus was firmly fixed on comedy and sex. Good times! But it didn't keep its lighthearted tone. Once the mate business stopped being a secret I felt it lost a lot of its humor.

Graham starts out this book as a player who has gotten bored with the game. While trying to deny that he has a problem he spots a butt designed to make a man fall to his knees and worshi...more

Who is afraid of the big bad wolf that surely isn’t me; instead I want to be hunted and stalked then devoured by the wolf. How long I have been waiting for Missy and Graham’s story, a very long time, and I loved it. I always knew this book would have the funnies and hot sexual chemistry and Graham walking wolf of my dreams.

I know Miss Warren’s book aint nothing but fluff, but its cotton candy fluff, all sweet and sticky and no good for you. The writing order of the books is...more

I'm usually a sucker for "she was right under my nose the whole time" romances, but this was one that did not work for me. I was pretty excited about it when I picked it up, but the disappointments kept on coming. First I discovered Big Bad Wolf wasn't the first in The Others Series. Then I discovered that it wasn't the swoony werewolf romance I was hoping for. It started out pretty bad and kept getting worse.

In the beginning, we meet th...more

I liked "Big Bad Wolf" by Christine Warren. It wasn't until I got home and began the story that I realized this was an expanded version of "Fur Factor" which was originally published as an ebook by Ellora's Cave in 2003. I enjoyed the original and I was pleased to read the expanded version which is actually the second of the 'Fantasy Fix' miniseries.

Missy is the 'good' girl. She's a kindergarden teacher who likes children and dreams of the whole 'white picket fence' future. She's also about read...more

This was my first Christine Warren and I won't be reading more. I actually found this book repulsive. The set up is cute: shy kindergarten teacher is dressed up sexy on a dare from friends who want to set her up on a blind date; she goes to the party and gets the attention of her secret crush, who is a slutty alpha werewolf who hasn't noticed her in the six months they've known of each other but is turned on by her now. I was ready to settle back and enjoy it when...wham, he kidnaps her, rapes h...more
Was that necessary?

Seriously, I was enjoying this book quite a lot and then I read the worst ending ever.
I have read some crazy sh*t out there but never something like this. I get that you love the hero but did you have to had sex with him while he was a werewolf?
I would have believed that you loved him without that gross and icky scene! It was like doing it with a huge dog. What the author was thinking while she wrote that I have no idea, but I can't rate this book any higher after reading TH...more
****** 3.5 to 4 STARS ******

Goodreads really needs to incorporate half stars, Geesh!

Big Bad Wolf was badass! Not just another werewolf tale, here we actually got to see the men change form. You're probably asking, don't all werewolfs change form in books? No. I've read a handful that tell us they're werewolves, talk about hierarchy within the culture and even growl, GRRR! but I don't get to see the change. This book had no problem seeing to the shift and even playing upon it a little, which I lo...more
Probably more of a 4.5 stars, actually.

Christine Warren has a great series with The Others, sexy, hot, funny, the whole works. And Big Bad Wolf is one of the best of them. The problem I have with the series is the reading order...since she is going back and reworking her earlier e-books and releasing them as novels, the new books come off more as prequels. Sooo, while we have been reading about Missy and Graham for the first six books in the series, we are only getting to their story now. But, i...more
Big Bad Wolf
3 Stars

While this installment in the Novels of the Others is an improvement on the last, it is still lacking in world building and character development.

It is undeniable that Graham is a deliciously sexy werewolf, however, the whole love at second or even third scent is simply ridiculous. A romance based on the notion of fated mates loses its impact when it takes the hero more than one meeting to realize that the heroine is his destiny. Moreover, Graham is not my idea of a successfu...more

This has got to be one of my favorite new ( new to me ) series. A customer recommended this to me the other day, and felt so passionate about this book and told me I had to give it a try. Well I bought yesterday and finished it this morning.It has everythin...a plot ( which is always nice) a romance ( amazing character development ) and crazy sizzles.Its about an Alpha wolf named Graham whos had more of his share of one night stands and pretty much knows he can get anyone he wants..ent...more

This is by far my favorite! I think that the order of reading this series is a little skewed because the author is fitting some short stories in here and there, but in expanded novel form. I would read (6th book, but the first in the series) One Bite with a Stranger first, and this one second, then Wolf at the Door, following in order.
But, yeah, Missy and Graham are my favorite "Other" couple.

Big Bad Wolf - Missy and Graham - the wait is over!

At long last Graham and Missy's story, yippee! This is the second of Warren's Fixed series to be spiffed up and re-released and unlike One Bite With A Stranger (The Others, Book 6) (originally Fantasy Fix), this is the first print release of Big Bag Wolf (Fur Factor redux and redone) I am not an e-book person, so I have been waiting for Graham and Missy's since I first read Wolf on the Door and got hooked on Warren's Other series.

Recommends it for: fans of men forcing themselves on women. EWWW.

This wasn't a romance or paranormal/fantasy novel. It was porn. The whole motivation behind EVERY plot detail was to get them back into having sex where the "hero" (a term I use loosely) would be beyond dominating with the sweet, innocent kindergarten teacher. Warning - the author apparently has limited time to develop characters so instead we'll repeatedly hear about the heroine as "a sweet kindergarten teacher"

I truly don't understand what anyone sees in this... but then again I am not a fan o...more
I had originally read this book in it's paper format that was offered by Ellora's Cave and titled "Fur Factor". I loved it so much then, and with the addition of new material I love it now even more. I'm thrilled to have it in both formats.

Poor Graham Winters... he is the young attractive Alpha of the Silverback Werewolf Clan and is bored, bored, bored with the Otherworld women he has to choose from. He is tired of the gorgeous Vamp women and their games, the other Werewolf women, Demons, Fae an...more

Good read - this is a rewrite of her original Fur Factor from the ebook series Fixed. There are some changes - mostly smoothing out the bumps in the plotting. She changed one scene considerably [to be truer to the character perhaps:] but I did enjoy the older version better. A quibble only, it is still a fun, fast read.

Graham is the Alpha of the Pack and is having political problems. When he finds his very unwolflike mate [meek and mild and human:] his problems are aggravated. Missy is a kinderg...more

All I could think about while reading this book was wow Graham was such a caveman. I could probably count the number of complete sentences he said to Missy and I couldn’t stand it. After these two meet again at their friends party Graham became smitten and claimed Missy as his mate. She being human and in complete denial that this sexy wolf would want her, tries to explain to him why they can’t be together and then the trouble begins. I liked that Graham was an Alpha wolf but it killed me how he...more

This novel got off to an interesting start, but it didn't do a good job of supporting my willing suspension of disbelief for a full 312 pages. The romance never quite gelled for me; I had trouble understanding why the heroine's scent was suddenly irrestible to a werewolf who, in theory, should have been smelling her for weeks. Maybe I missed something.

Though the hero was sexy, there were elements of his behavior that creeped me out--I won't spoil anyone else's reading experience with the detail...more
This was a disappointing read for me because I adore a protective, possessive alpha male hero but our Big Bad Wolf was Alpha in name only. The heroine was allowed to be attacked and the hero did absolutely nothing to find and punish her attacker even though he's the packs alpha and the reason why she was attacked in the first place. But even worse, the hero risks the heroines life himself in a "matehunt" instead of dealing with the underhanded threats to his authority in a decisive...more
Read this if your extremely bored and brain dead. Only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of one was because it was a light funny read in the beginning. Then Misty kept changing her character, Graham couldn't control 1 grumbling pack member with half asssed plans that were ridiculous, even the villain changed from calm and conniving to street thug.

The matehunt? A ridiculous stupid plot point. Why were those already mated participating?

I drew the line at the beastiality, and that when she found o...more

Audiobook I got on great Tantor sale. Even Kate Reading couldn't really save this story IMO. I thought the alpha male crap from Hero was too much over the top. Didn't really care for him so it was just OK.

Update: I like the hero from this much more seeing him with Missy later in the series and with the rest of his pack.

I liked this book, but honestly, it is the first book I have read in the series that makes me hestitate to say that. I enjoyed the story line, but the matehunt idea was just so awful to me. It took away some of the enjoyment of the story just because I was so busy being disturbed by it.

FBC: Bought on sale!
I liked it but didn't absolutely love it. Its #8 in a series but can be read as a standalone. The heroine alternated from having ZERO self esteem to being a bad-ass bitch and it just didn't jive for me. I think had she been a little more sure of herself it would have come across better.
Mixed feelings about this book so far. I can deal with the cliche storyline, the overused werewolf/vampire involvement, but some of the writing is just bad. Too much sex without much foundation or buildup. I gave up reading it for now, there are much better books on my bookshelf.

This is the best story of them all & I like all the one's with the friends playing the fantasy dating game. They are funny, surprising and complete. Plenty of romance & WooooAAAH!
This book I think was better than the first. Missy is suppose to be the quiet one, the shy one, the kindergarten teacher. But to Graham who has never noticed her before thanks to his sleep with no human rule, one night it all goes away.

Taking her from Regina and Dimitri's house and back to his place for sex, he realizes he found his mate. A human, but none of that matters.

She's afraid she's just a fling to Graham who she has wanted for a while. Why the change?

Add that with uprisings from the p...more
