Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
Not His Werewolf is book two in the Not This series by Annie Nicholas. The covers are cute and story is insta-mates.

Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone, but I’ve notice set ups for next books or reviles of things that happened in other books plus previous characters pop up. For me I’ve been skipping around in the Not This series and have no issues with not reading in order.

Betty is a shifter who can not shift and so pack law labels her a human. She has always felt like a part

Well now. What a lovely way to start the New Year reading.

There is something really wrong with this review around this part. I swear it thinks it's the Bermuda Triangle and consequently keeps making my words disappear.
(Consequently. Look at me, using all big words. xD)

Because of God forsaken exams I'm only now just getting to my first book of the year. (Why no, I'm still in between tests.)

I don't know about you but there's a lot of anxiety surrounding my first book of the year. I'm not supersti

I love these books!

I also love Annie's writing style. As I say in all of my reviews of Annie-books, she has the perfect balance of heat and humor, and they always leave me with a smile and wanting more!

In addition, she has a unique talent for writing shifters. She gives them human qualities in their animal form and vice-versa, and she does it in such a way that I've never really seen done before.

I was really cheering for Betty. She couldn't shift, and that left her in limbo between the human and

This was a delightful and funny story. We are back in New Port, and this time it's the wolf pack who has a big issue or do they?
Pack and family mean everything to Betty but when she had to leave hers due to not being whole wolf, she chose to live as a human.

Betty is a half shifter -a human by pack law. But the local pack beta has just claimed her as a soul mate. A fun hot story.

Cute werewolf story. Ending was rather a simple fix to the problem that the book hinged on. Nothing really new brought to the genre but very readable anyway.

The thing is, I really like these books! I like the characters - a lot! The sarcasm and wit are awesome but there is some part of me that thinks the relationship hurdles and central defining issues are resolved too quickly. No spoilers but . . . really, Eoin? That being said - It's a super fun book. I'm on to book three! ...more

I absolutely loved Angie and Erion story, so I couldn't wait to read Betty and Kens story. It was funny, I laughed and cried it was an emotional read. Romantic and full of family antics that kept you on your toes. Wonderful characters to fall in love with leaving you ready for the next story.

I received this book for from the author and it does not affect my review. Betty cannot shift even though she is a shifter. She can feel in her bones that she is a shifter. Since she cannot shift, she is banned from her home wolf pack and has to go and live the in human world. Slhe starts a pet adoption home. She makes this her pack. She has few human friends and no shifter friends, just family. Ken is the beta of his wolf pack and his father is the alpha. He likes to run with the stray dogs he ...more

Enjoyable, though the reason for the conflict seemed like a cop-out and a cheaper version of Not His Dragon. It was disappointing with very little drama for its potential.

She was removed from her pack for being defective. As all wolf shifters need a pack, Betty has created her own. Betty owns and operated the only animal shelter for unwanted dogs and cats in New Port.

I couldn’t wait to read "Not His Werewolf" by Annie Nicholas, I love reading her stories about shifters, so full magic.
She writes the kind of romance I like the most, without unnecessary drama and betrayal, full of irony, passion and that make you fall in love with the protagonists of the story, but also with the people around them.
"Not His Werewolf" is the second book in “Not This Series”, and it’s Ken and Betty’s story, it can be read as stand alone, since the first book was Eoin and Angie’s s

What an incredibly sweet story! Shifters have one true wish and that is to find their one and only, their Soulmates. It is a difficult wish to fulfill for many but not for Ken Birch, his problem was convincing Betty Newman of that fact. Betty left her pack at 18. When she was unable to shift, forcing her to accept the human side of her life instead of the Shifter half. Being forced out of her pack left lasting scars on Betty, some she really never wants to encounter again. But then Ken enters he ...more

Fascinating wolf shifter story!!!

Betty runs an animal shelter. They have become her pack since she was unable to shift at age 18, was declared “human” and removed from the pack where she grew up. When her assistant accidentally darts a werewolf, Betty triggers his mate radar…but you can’t have a human as a soulmate. Years of burying the hurt come roaring back as her past is revisited.

Ken is intrigued by the challenge Betty presents. A date that should have been a disaster turns humorous and fun

I loved the start of Not his Werewolf. Animal control shot a tranquilizer dart into a werewolf and then had a panic attack. Betty Newman, a werewolf who cannot shift, comes to the rescue and the unexpected happens. When Ken Birch wakes up in the cage at Betty's animal shelter he knows he has found his soul mate but nothing is as easy he he thinks it will be. I loved Betty and how she tries to take care of everyone around her. Ken is so mixed up and confused. Finding his soul mate was not suppose ...more

I'm never disappointed in a book from Annie Nicholas and this was no exception. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I feel fortunate every time I get one from Annie Nicholas.

I had already read Not His Dragon, which I enjoyed, so it was fun to see how these characters were connected to the others. Betty & Ken shared a soulmate bond, but Betty was unable to shift, so it didn't make sense. The reason for her inability to shift was unexpected, and the outcome was happily predictable

I really enjoy this authors paranormal romances. I loved the storyline and the characters in this book. You really feel for her and all the pain she has experienced. She so wants to belong. He give her hope but loving and trusting in him is a great risk. They have amazing chemistry and I was hooked into the story right away. I wanted her to get a happy ending but the author kept me guessing.

I am voluntarily reviewing a copy I received.

A joy to read.

Betty has a load of grief to overcome in her life since she can't claim her shifter half since she's never been able to shift and that resulted in her being kicked out of her pack. All that changes when friend halls a werewolf into her animal rescue shelter. As Ken groggily wakes up he scents his soul mate and sees Betty. Thus begins a fun story of learning to overcome the short comings of life to successfully reach a much deserved HEA.

I really liked it. Good world developpement, some character growth, which these types of story rarely have. A complex view of hierarchy with no "evil villains" but people with nuanced positions.
I skipped the sex scenes, but they were only a few paragraph to skip, really, again, a good surprise for this kind of story.
I look forward to reading the rest of the serie.

Great story

Great story. I really liked the characters. The heroine was a bit whiney, over all fairly kick ass, but when she got on the whiney self doing trips it was hard to like her.
I really like these characters, I look forward to continuing this series. Four stars cause it needs a tiny bit more editing.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. the characters were 3 dimensional and you get sucked into the story. I was worried I wouldn't like this one as much as her first ( not his dragon) but it kept me just as gripped. I love the new characters and the depth of the ones in the first book. it has kept me up to the morning hours again. I shall be sleep deprived but a good book is worth it. ...more

Much improved!

This novel was much better fleshed out than the last. I didn't feel like only one character getting the love. A grand addition to what's shaping up to be a fabulous series.

Ken was briefly introduced in "Dragon," and Betty was sort of mentioned in passing. These two may be opposites, but they're both a little broken, and even the multitudes of problems arising can't keep them apart.

We also saw a little more of Eoin & Angie from the previous book, but any questions left over from t

I loved this story, it is the second installment in the Not His series, I am so delighted there is a third one ready for me to read. It has the perfect amount of humor and romance combined. I love the fact that this stand alone novel brought in characters from the first book. This is a book I would highly recommend.
