Jul 04, 2013 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
I absolutely loved this book! It was so emotional, I loved the way the story of Casey, Jillian and Zane was told. I also was overjoyed that Dallas and Mia were included to love and help Zane overcome his past as well. Jillian's father was fantastic too. There was not one thing in this book that I was disappointed with. The only disappointment is that there are no more books in this series. I would love to read how all the characters are doing a few years down the road. Great job Diana Duncan!!! ...more

Gut wrenching look at the effects of a childhood riffled with verbal abuse and tragedy and how that affected the hero Zane Wolfe.

Not many authors delve so deeply into the man side of the effects on childhood abuse. Usually those types of men are the psycho killers in a suspense novel. In Big Bad Wolfe the hero, FBI Special Agent Zane Wolfe takes on the toughest missions and nothing scares him until he finds out he is the father of a 5 year old boy. Then all of his childhood traumas come to the

Another delightful outing from Diana Duncan, this time a sequel of sorts to _Laws of Attraction_. This novel picks up the story of FBI Agent Zane Wolfe, whom we met as a minor character in _Laws._ Zane is a big bad secret agent man who comes from a troubled childhood with an abusive and difficult father, so he has spent his life walling himself off from other people and never making emotional connections, especially with women, so that he does not perpetuate the cycle of abuse from his father.

Outstanding story

I have absolutely no idea why I didn't review this book before because it has always been a favorite read. This is the second book in Diana Duncan's Marriage and Mayhem series. I enjoyed Zane in the first book but I loved him in this one.
Finding out that he's the father of a five year old son terrifies Zane on a molecular level. He believes that he will be the same as his own father and that is something that he cannot handle. Jillian knows that given the opportunity Zane has

I have learned to expect a certain level of entertainment from Diana Duncan's books and Big Bad Wolfe doesn't disappoint. This is the second in a series that started with Mia and Dallas and ended with Zane and Jillian. In life, everyone experiences traumas and if honest, finds themselves 'broken' in some way. They go through life looking for a way to 'fix' themselves. Some ignore it, some go to therapy, some find love. Love is my personal favorite and a lot of hurt can be healed with love. Diana ...more

This one was my favorite of the series. Zane finds out he's a father and that is his greatest fear. His son's mother has died and now people are trying to take his son from the only person in the world that has always been there for him. But there is nothing better than seeing a big bad cop brought to his knees by finding the love of his life in both Jillian and his son. ...more

I didn't think Ms. Duncan could surpass her book one, but, she did!
What's not to love. A crazy gorgeous sensitive troubled alpha man, a beautiful, selfless, honorable leading lady and a darling little boy. The storyline was romantic suspense at its best. We had a great supporting cast of characters including our main characters from book one.
