THE REVIEW

Why this book?
I really liked Dakota Cassidys Paris, Texas Romance books so I thought I'll give this series a try

What I thought

JC adopts a dog captured by Animal Control, who turns out to be sexy werewolf Max Adams. This book was altogether fun! Max going back and forth being Max and Fluffy (yes she named him Fluffy) was amusing. When Max is Fluffy the inner dialogue is priceless and he gets himself in some hilarious situations! Parts when Max is human is smokin hot, the romance was siz

Max is cursed and must find his life mate before the next full moon. Question is, how can he tell her, when he locates her, with out freaking her out and scaring her away? Only one way to find out... move in next door and woo her until she can't possibly walk away, right?

This was good, and what's even more amazing is I finished this in one sitting. Fluffy made the book for me. I loved his reactions to things. He kept me laughing throughout the whole book.

My one complaint is that I found JC's reaction predictable, but completely understandable. I probably would have reacted the same way. So, it could have been a lot worse.

However, I have to say that I was surprised by the little twist near the end. I didn't see it coming. And don't get me started on the set up

Max Adams, alpha of the Cedar Glen pack, has a family curse and must mate by the full moon after he meets his fated mate...JC Jensen. Two problems: one, she’s a human, on a break from men. Two, she thinks he’s her new adopted dog, Fluffy. Then, romance happens.

This book was a total blast -- from start to finish. It was very different from my usual romance fare, but I loved it! The parts where Max is JC's dog were hilarious and heart-warming. The parts when Max was human were sexy and hot!! He was a very yummy hero.

Towards the end, I felt a little disappointed with JC, but then again, I have to ask myself....her reactions were TOTALLY believable and understandable.

Sweet, sexy and adorable story!
The BookChick
An American Werewolf in Hoboken ... hokey title but very fitting from Dakota Cassidy. She has a canny ability to craft stories that are unique and wildly humorous. And, this story was no different. The way Max and JC meet will leave you in stitches and the name "Fluffy" attached to a werewolf was wrong on so many levels but I died when the derivation came into play..."Fluffinator." I enjoyed how JC found out about Max and also discovered some unexpected revelations along the way.

Fun and sexy

This is the first book by this author that I have read. It was a lot of fun, and sexy too. I enjoyed the characters a lot. The story line was fun as well. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

I'm not into giving spoilers or a "run-down" of the entire book. This is my opinion of another incredible read by Dakota Cassidy.

Dakota has written another phenomenally entertaining story with humor, love and grit! Whether her books are paranormal or every-day-normal, Dakota Cassidy nails it every time. Her plots flow smoothly and never lag. Character development in this book is above par... as is the chemistry, emotion and humor. I couldn't find one thing that I didn't like about this book and

My swinging mood is worse than ever this January, and I've not been able to read much except brain candy, if I could.

Unfortunately, brain candy differs from stupid and boring, and this short novel feels such to me. Candy I can suffer, stupid never much.

I DNFed it and wento to bed to brood. Serves me right.

A little fun, a lot sexy, extremely predictable and easily devoured in a couple of hours. JC Jensen's lonely and decides a pet would be better than her last boyfriend so off to the shelter

This was a good book. Some very funny parts! I enjoyed the relationship between Max and JC. I would have liked more info on the H's past romances. We got info on the h's dating past, but not the H. Overall a fun read. Safety gang safe!

As much as I like this author and narrator for the Witchless in Seattle series, I did not enjoy this story as much. It might be that there wasn’t as much story here as sex. I was almost hooked at the end to grab the next, but I am not sure if I will bother.

This was a well written funny read. JC has rescued Fluffy the abnormally large hairy dog, or is he really? This is the first time I have read anything by Dakota Cassidy and truly enjoyed her style of writing. This read was fun, sexy and downright humorous.

If you love paranormal with a mix of everything you will truly enjoy this read.

I received a copy of this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Blurb:
Max needs to find his mate now or face deadly consequences. Being caught while in full shift by Animal Control was embarrassing enough, but matters only get more complicated when he's adopted by JC. A human. A human destined to be his mate.

While Max gets to know JC's heart and body as a man at night, he endures all the indignities of pretending to be Fluffy-the-gigantic-rescued-dog during the day. He's falling fast f

This is one of those books I really could have liked more. It had a fun plot -- a werewolf named Max is inadvertently captured by the pound while in shift and adopted by his life-mate. (Derek would have been... unthrilled by his literary counterpart.) During the time when JC (the mate) believes him to be her pet, she names the big ferocious werewolf "Fluffy", dresses him in silly doggy T-shirts, and in other ways inadvertently subjects him as much as possible to every humiliation you can imagine ...more

This book is one of those books that on the more light-hearted end of the spectrum. Sure, the potential was there for Max to DIE if he didn't fulfill the terms of the curse, but the story itself skated on that light-hearted edge. I was mostly okay with that, but I did make a scrunchy face at how easily JC forgave Max for lying to her about a few key elements of their relationship.

Namely that he was both her overgrown "dog" and a werewolf. Well, that and his potential death at the hands of the cu

So, let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of Dakota's work. The BEST part of her books is the dialogue: sharp, witty, and full of attitude.

In this story, JC Jenson decides that she needs to adopt a pet. A safe, cuddly one - like, maybe a kitten. Instead, she's drawn to the back of the animal shelter towards a massive, menacing dog. A dog that is scheduled to be eliminated. This pulls at her heartstrings, so (of course) she adopts the giant dog/wolf mix. What JC doesn't know is that Fluffy
