A Joyfully Jay review.

4 stars

I love Beauty and the Beast stories! Of course, you all already know I love wolf shifter stories too. When I saw the blurb for Wolf Around the Corner, my heart skipped a beat. A combination of both? YES!! I was not disappointed. This was a lovely book with lovable characters (except that dick…Dick), a plausible plot…ok maybe that whole shifting into a wolf thing…but I can certainly see a town coming together to save an historical building, and a sweet and sexy roman

Tom Davidson learns the hard way how being a big fish in a small pond does not translate to being a big fish in a large pond. Tom left podunk Waycroft Falls as quickly as he could so that he could make it big in New York. After a few years of not making it, even if his sister thought he did, he returns home at her request to help her out. Tail tucked between his legs, he keeps wanting to confess to his sister how much he failed. Lucky for Tom, the opportunity never comes.

This story is unexpected

Wow, now this was something refreshingly different from the (entirely too many shut up quit looking at me like that) werewolf books that I have read. Here, lycanthropy, called “Galen’s Syndrome,” after the ancient physician who discovered it, is a recessive hereditary gene that only manifests when the parents share the gene. There’s a bit of hand-waving with a bit of magic involved but that’s less important. It’s a very rare condition, and one that is not well-known to the general public.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this story. Tom is escaping his not to glamorous life in New York to visit his sister back home and she asks for his help to save her store. Frank has been on his own ever since he had to leave home and know that deep down all he is is an animal and not worth anything.

I felt so bad for Frank with how he was treated by his family and those in his home town but he has made a nice quite life for himself in Waycroft Falls, I unde

This book was received free in return for an honest review via Goodreads Don't Buy My Love review program.

So this was certainly an interesting take on a shifter book. Something along the lines of the wolf who’s not a wolf. Frank suffers from a genetic mutation caused by a curse that has given him Lycanthropy, which allows him to transform into a wolf and the half shifted form of a werewolf. At the tender age of 18, Frank finds himself in a little town, working in a little book store. When the o
Unique modern werewolf tale

Tom Davidson is an aspiring actor who lived in New York. He returns home when his sister's livelihood is threatened to help her raise funds by putting on a play.

Frank Braden is Tom's neighbor. He's been alienated and turnout by his family because he was unfortunate to inherit the family genetic werewolf curse, known as Galen syndrome. He works in the bookstore that Tom's sister, Annie owns. When the plan to put on a play is decided; Frank is roped into writing the scri
I received Wolf Around the Corner from the ‘Don’t Buy My Love’ program on Goodreads for an honest and unbiased review. The MCs in this book are Tom Davidson, an unsuccessful actor, and Frank Braden, a young writer who has Galen’s disease that causes lycanthropy. The story is told in third person from both Frank and Tom’s pov.

I've got this book as part of the free book package for signing up to QueeRomance Ink ( site and newsletter, maintained by the nicest host - Scott Coatsworth with his husband Mark.
I wanted this book badly because I love shifters and fairy tales and here we have a modernized spin on Beauty and the Beast, with a staging of that same fairy tale as the main plot point.
It was a very different take on shifters, described as a rare medical condition that can be passed only by bot

I’ve been reading paranormals for many years and thought there were no new twists on werewolves or vampires. I’m happy to say Aidee Ladnier proved me wrong. In Wolf Around the Corner, we meet Tom, a less-than-successful actor on Broadway, and Frank, who meets the definition of werewolf. They come together on a play, but what elevates the story is two things. The first is Tom’s initial natural response to meeting a werewolf and then overcoming that response. The second is the author’s very clever ...more

Turning a curse into an asset...

“Wolf Around the Corner” by Aidee Ladnier is a paranormal m/m romance story that features a not-quite-successful New York actor who comes back to the small town of Waycroft Falls to help his sister start her new business. He has a spark with one of her employees and convinces the man to perform in a version of “Beauty and the Beast.” It turns out he really can morph into a beast. Perfect for the play, not so great for his assimilation into the close-knit small tow

I received this story at no charge from the M/M Group DMBL Program in exchange for an honest review.

These are the hardest reviews to write, when you really love something about a story and really dislike something else. The premise of the story is pretty simple. Tom is back to his small town after failing to make a theater career in New York City. He needs a place to reboot while he figures out how to get his career off the ground. His sister Annie offers him the top floor of her bookstore for a

It took me a bit to get through this story. It wasn’t until the last few chapters that things got interesting. Earlier than that was rather slow and repetitive. It didn’t help that I found Tom to be a selfish jerk who was taking advantage of incredibly sweet Frank. As it neared the end and their romance was in full bloom (and Tom finally came to his senses) that I finally enjoyed it for the romance that it was. However, the whole Galen’s syndrome thing was a big negative for me. Not the shifting ...more
Wolf Around the Corner was an enjoyable easy romance, but not for me. I didn't connect with Tom and Frank, their romance was bland and boring. In overall good enough. ...more
