Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books
SOMETHING TO HOWL ABOUT is the start of a new series by Christine Warren. I haven’t read her previous books so I was quite excited to see how she would compare to my favorite PNR authors. This is a novella and a really fast read.
The two main characters are shifters, the female a wolf and the male a bear. Annie has been banned from her pack for something she did and wasn’t explained, unfortunately. I think the author left us a little hanging ...more
Jonas is a brown bear with a huge problem as none of his generation have been able to have cubs. So Annie sure seems like the answer to all their problems. Trouble is yes she's delectable and yes his inner bear is desperate to hunt her down but the ab ...more
The denial of a one true mate existing for bears was weird. He was so adamant it didn't happen to his kind and then Bam! Out of the blue he's told it does and he's experiencing it? Because this was such a short read, the explanation felt too rushed. Definitely needed more page time to sort it all out.
Overall a quirky re ...more
Fun, fast-paced and full of sexual tension from the start! My only complaint, it was novella length and I wanted more.

This novella follows Dr. Annie Cryer who is a wolf shifter that has been banished from her pack years ago. She has been wondering about trying to help people. Annie’s pack leader calls and asks for her to help Grizzly shifter Jonas Browning whose clan is in trouble and in return she will be let back into her pack.
For being just a novella, it has enough background information that the story felt very complete. After finishing the book, ...more
When Dr. Annie Cryer is asked to help the town mayor about the birthing issue with the Grizzly population, she never expected to be drawn to Grizzly alpha Jonas Browning. Will she be able to convince this commitment phobic bear that they are mated or will he turn his back on this lone wolf?
While I enjoyed this story as it prov ...more
- Concept of mates. As soon as they lay eyes on each other they want to have sex and deep meaningful feeling grow like mushrooms after rain. :/
- Inner wolf for heroine reminded me a lot of inner goddess from Fifty Shades of Grey
"The force of that direct attraction almost made her dizzy. It definitely made her wolf squirm and whimper like a puppy looking to be stroked."

I loved the author’s view on the world of shifters. This installment introduces readers to a town called Alphaville. This is a town, which welcomes shifters of all species down on their luck and have issues be it financial, physical and emotional dealing with. The town provides a haven for them to recover, recuperate, retreat and re ...more
Maybe it is just my mood but I was just not impressed with skipping any pretense of a romance and just moving right into "mate" and then him thinking that he should not link himself to any single woman was just too much ...more
Light hearted paranormal series opener. Full of humor, with much of it on the sarcastic side. Humor of the kind that doesn’t take it all so seriously. My favorite type of writing.
I don’t know why I haven’t read this author before but will absolutely look for this new series as well as looking into the original of this spinoff.
The below makes the town of Alphaville sound dark and sad but that was not at at my first impression. To me it is a town of reju ...more
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from the St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley.
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I usually buy Christine Warren’s books in paperback!!
The cover is beautiful! I like it!
This is a prequel in a new series called Alphaville by Christine Warren which is a spin-off from The Others series. This is an adult series, and this is only a novella about 86 pages.

I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Something to Howl About is a short novella introducing Alphaville. The town of Alpha is where shifters who don't really get along in the outside world come to reside. Not because they are bad or anything, they just aren't of a pack mentality or prefer their own ways.
It just so happens that Dr. Annie Cryer is wandering the country without a place t
This was a great introduction into this new series. It is just a novella, so it's just a taste of what's to come. It was gritty and downright feral. The back and forth between mates that had one denying the process. I seriously can't wait to dig into Baby, I'm Howli ...more

Here is a novella of about 80 pages introducing a new series by Christine Warren titled Alphaville, which will be about a town created by shifters and become a haven for those who don’t have anywhere else to go.
Inevitably, those who know me won’t be surprised to know I first read the volume 1, Baby I’m Howling for you, before this novella.
It’s a good thing though because if Something to Howl About reads ea ...more
This basically is about two shifters- one is a female wolf and the other is a male bear-- Dr. Annie Cryer & Jonas Browning. Annie was banished from her pack. S ...more
I've always loved Christine Warren's shifter stories. Not that I didn't love her gargoyles too, but her shifters are my favorite. Something to Howl About is the first book in her new Alphaville series. It branches between her The Others series very nicely.
If you follow me then you know that Grizzlies are my favorite of the shifters with tigers running a close second. Not to worry there's a tiger in this series too. ...more
All Annie Cryer wants is to return home, but she knows that may never happen. So when she is offered the ability to go home by performing a job, she jumps at the chance and lands herself in Alpha … and into the presence of handsome and danger to her libido, Jonas Browning.
Jonas needs help before his clan goes extinct. They need to know why there is a problem with his clan of Grizzlies conceiving. What he didn’t expect was the expert to be so darn luscious an ...more
This came out earlier this month and it's a pretty easy going romance that helps set up the town and what it is like there. Annie is a genius and as a favor to her old alpha with the promise of being reinstated into the pack she is suppose to help the bears with their problem. Jonas asked for help because he is worried about his clan and falling head over heels for the little wolf who is suppose to fix things wasn't supposed to happen. When she tells him that they are mates he overrea ...more
This is a fast and fun shifter novella that hits the ground running. As we’ve come to expect from Ms. Warren, Something to Howl About is fantabulous and filled with humor, great characters with wonderful chemistry and heat all wrapped up in a well-defined world that we’d just love to escape into.
An ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review of which this is both hones ...more

Dr Annie Cryer is a genetic specialist. She was banned from her wolfpack several years ago and floats from place to place. when they meet, Annie knows Jonas is her mate.
