A Fantasy Come to Life -- Literally. — Emma Gavin writes bestselling novels about werewolves, but that doesn't mean she believes in them -- and she certainly doesn't think she'll meet one. But that's exactly what happens when her books catch the attention of a rich and powerful pack of Manhattan Weres, who have kept their existence hidden for centuries. Alarmed by the accu ...more

I started out really enjoying this book. It was light—both in terms of worldbuilding and tone—but sometimes I don’t want heavy or complex. Sometimes I just want to smile and giggle and enjoy a lighthearted romance. I think if I had to liken it to something I would probably pick the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands. They’re not the same storyline or writing style, but the tone is similar.

The setup of this book really appealed to me. An author who writes about fictional werewolves hits a

I have had this novel for sometime and for some reason it got lost in my TBR list and what a shame. This is my first journey with Vicki Lewis Thompson and I have to say it will not be my last one.

I love shifter books! I especially love well written shifter books with fully rounded characters and a fresh story line. A Werewolf in Manhattan was that for me. It was wonderful that the heroine was a writer of Shifter paranormal romances. It was almost as if the heroine was VLT herself. Emma was ever
'A Werewolf in Manhattan' is the first instalment in the Wild About You series by Vicki Lewis Thompson. I've only read one novel from VLT before, which was a cute, fast read. This novel turned out the same.

The characters were fun and easy to like. Emma, was smart and funny. Aiden, was the real package. Handsome, smart, wealthy and loyal. I loved his character. Oh, I almost forgot... He's a werewolf. The heir of the pack leader.
The only thing that got a bit annoying was towards the end, when Em
I was very excited about this book. I love Vicki Lewis Thompson since i read "Babe on a Broomstick" and couldn't wait to start this one. If only i had the same enthusiasm to finish it. To put it blankly i know Vicki tends to walk a fine line between sex and erotic sex. The thing is that in the books i've read is that the sex was secondary to the bigger storyline. A storyline that is often so witty and funny i can't put it down. This book seemed to have the word "sex,good looking", or similar adv ...more
Emma Gavin is the bestselling author of a series of werewolf books, but as far as she's concerned she's just created an entertaining fantasy - after all werewolves don't exist, right? Wrong! Aidan Wallace is in charge of the Wallace pack's security, and when he realised Emma's books were closer to fact than fiction he was sent to investigate. Now Aidan must figure out if Emma has a rogue werewolf informant, or if she's just very creative as well as why he is so attracted to her.

I've read a coup
Just very meh. Incredibly mediocre. I finished it, so it wasn't god awful, but so much about it left me cold- the characters, the settings, their reactions. It is basically every werewolf romance, nothing new, and the romance isn't even that engaging.

The worst part was the author's penchant for describing everything, including the characters thoughts, down to the last detail. She leaves nothing for you to figure out, and repeats things ad nauseum and with maximum redundancy - like how the hot ri
Ich fand das Buch gut, daher 3 Sterne.
An und für sich ist die Geschichte interessant geschrieben, wenn auch absehbar.
Nichts desto trotz sind die Charaktere sympathisch und auch wenn einige Emmas Charakter kritisieren, weil sie sich über Aidans Luxusleben aufregt, gleichzeitig aber selbst Gucci Schuhe trägt, mag ich sie. Sie macht zudem eine Veränderung im Laufe des Buches durch, hört auf Aidan ständig zu kritisieren und wird toleranter.
Meine Kritikpunkte sind eher, dass manche Dinge fast ins Läc

I really enjoyed this book. It was sweet and passionate, but what set it apart was its main character, Emma. She wasn't your typical MC damsel. In nearly every contemporary/paranormal romance books I've read, when the MC is confronted with the paranormal she freaks out to an unbelievable degree. It's become one of my pet peeves. You'll have supposedly strong independent women who aren't afraid of anything, then they meet guys that they really like and eventually fall for, but when they f

My thoughts:

Aww, the book was really sweet and cute, and with some hot passion too.

Emma spends most of her time writing, and having sex sometimes with her boring boyfriend. She is sure not living the passionate life of her heroines. And I did start to think that she needed that. Aiden Wallace is the big wolf of the story, he takes care of security for the pack and he is wealthy as sin. His future does not involve a human, but oh how attracted he is to her. Sparks are flying and he can't almost

Since the moment I saw this cover and read the synopsis, I wanted to read this book.

Emma is a best-seller writer. Her book? Paranormal romance, including werewolves. She's funny and sweet, but her life is very different from the heroines in her books. She just has a boring boyfriend and spends her days in her house, writing and drinking coffee.

The werewolves exists, and Aiden Wallace is determined to find out how Emma knows so much about them. So he starts to in

What fun I’m having with Vicki Lewis Thompson’s paranormal books lately. I recently read and reviewed Chick with a Charm and enjoyed it a lot. Now she’s started a new series, Wild About You, and this first book is a terrific start with a delicious hero and a feisty heroine, who gets herself into trouble with her werewolf stories she writes. She has no idea how accurate her imagination is!

My favorite part of this book is Aidan. I love him. Though he starts out enjoying Emma’s books, they - and sh
A Werewolf in Manhattan – by Vicki Lewis Thompson

This book is a very light and frothy sexcapade with a major flaw or two. Most of this book is based on the premise that a human fiction writer that writes Romances about werewolves is going to “out” real werewolves once she knows they are for real. She writes FICTION. So what human in their right mind is going to believe anything she writes is fact?
The second problem I had with this novel is that the first 65 percent was boring. The rest of the n
Just finished this lovely read. I switched back and forth between listening to the audiobook and reading on my kindle. Clearly I wanted to finish the story.

Emma is a supernatural romance writer who writes fantasies about werewolfs low and behold. they are real and are worried that she might know too much.

Aidan was a fan of her books before he was assigned to tail her. In all the were romances i have read the alpha males are drawn to their scent. no difference here. They travel to chicago where
It started strong, but overall was just a so-so read. I was drawn to it as a light & funny read, and it definitely had it's moments.

Unfortunately the author chose to avoid any real plot development or satisfying conflict resolution. When things that are "impossible" are solved with a shrug, when the villain of the piece disappears and never gets what he deserves... It just disappoints. I'd have liked to see more plot, less "oh we find each other sooooo sexy" time.

I'd recommend to someone s
Emma Gavin is a successful writer who happens to have a very active imagination. That imagination has made her writing career a huge success however it is also about to land her in a bit of trouble. Aiden Wallace is heir apparent to his family's pack and has been assigned to keeping tags on Emma as her 'works of fiction' seem to bear a almost to strong a resemblance to real Werewolves and his family. Aiden's job is to find out if Emma has a informant or if she really is coming up with the guidel ...more
This was a cute paranormal romance with some nice humor and mostly likable characters (Emma goes a little goofy for one scene toward that end but). Nothing earth shattering but exactly what I was in the mood for and sometimes that counts more.
Dawn (Kat N Hat)
Sweet story. I really think I should have read this one first. It covered some of the lore that was missing from the second (which I read first).
Good solid fun read a few eye rolling moments but it worked

I just could not get into this book, so I put it aside :(
Emma is a best selling author of werewolf fiction, but little does she know that Weres are real. Aidan works security for his pack and is assigned to Emma to see if she has an informant, since her books are too close to how things really are. Instead he learns that she doesn't believe in werewolves at all, but one her fans seems to and is sending her creepy e-mails. Aidan traces the e-mails and finds that it's the teenage son of a close pack who has dreams of exposing Weres and taking over the w ...more
This is the first time I've read a paranormal book by Vicki Lewis Thompson. I must say I was no disappointed.

I've read all her Nerd books and loved them so much that I recommended them to others, but this is the first time I've ventured into the paranormal with Thompson and I have to say that it was great.

The characters are very interesting and real while still maintaining that feel of the paranormal variety. Aidan was wonderful, doing his best to fight that attraction to Emma and still protec
I picked up a copy of Vicki Lewis Thompson's A Werewolf in Manhattan a few weeks ago. I hadn't read any of her other stuff (although now I am interested in at least the Witch books) and was pleasantly surprised. I think I have found yet another series to read. But, I realized, Manhattan must be pretty crowded with all the supernatural folks that live there. Although, given how much of this book takes place in Chicago, the title might be a little off.

Regardless, I liked it. And I have added yet a

*Disclosure: Before I begin I want to disclose this is has probably been close to two months since I have read this book (I know I am a slacker) so some of the details are fuzzy, so if I get something wrong I apologize!

Well... where to start. One of my two stars is for the great cover and title. It made me buy the book, with very little reading of the back blurb.

But sadly, one cannot judge a book by its cover, and the story inside was a HUGE letdown. I've read several other Vickie Lewis Thompson books- her 'Nerds' series was highly enjoyable - and this book started out well. The first 50 pages or so were pretty good, actually. I found the idea that our werewolf has a condition that causes him to transform whe

I haven't read any of Ms. Thompson's Babes in Brooms novels, but I saw this one at my favorite bookstore, Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego, and couldn't resist it!

Loved the concepet, where the main character is Emma Gavin, a best selling novelist who writes romances featuring werewolves. She doesn't believe in actual werewolves. But her imagination about them is so good, that an actual werewolf family in New York has noticed how accurately her werewolves are depicted, and that that they believe s
Jetches  (My Not So Vacant Shelf)
Ok so when it comes to adult reads I guess the best ones for my liking are the supernatural ones. This book was pretty good. I loved the fact that she was a writer and that she wrong about werewolves, and then bam…one walks into her life thinking she knows too much. This book had my toes curling at some points, and I loved the feisty Emma. I love her independent needs and her stubborn determination to get what she wants. And the fact alone that Emma is a writer makes me love her. Not to mention ...more
Sin entrar en muchos detalles, este libro me ha parecido regular. Por un lado, la excusa que desencadena el acercamiento de los dos protas es chorras, pero que muy chorras.
A "grosso modo" trata de un tio bueno y millonario, dedicado al sector de la seguridad privada que lleva tres meses vigilando 24/7 a una autora bestseller. Si lo dejo así, alguien podría pensar que la mujer puede ser el blanco de alguna venganza o trama de cualquier clase: política, religiosa, etc.. Pero no!!! ¿Pa que se va a

Emma Gavin is a talented New York Times bestselling author who just happens to write about Werewolves. The only problem is her fiction is more fact than she ever could have realized.

Aidan Wallace is the next in line to be pack leader. He has been sent to follow Emma and decide whether she just has a really creative imagination or she has been leaked information from an inside source. Because there is no way that a human could write such an accurate depiction of a race that isn't even suppose to
