After Dark Review of Howl For It by Shelly Laurenston

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Read for: Series Challenge and Mount TBR
Synopsis: "They hunger for your pleasure. They growl for your touch. And in these sizzling stories by New York Times bestselling author Shelly Laurenston and Cynthia Eden, these sexy wolf shapeshifters are lust at first bite. . .

"Like A Wolf With A Bone" by Shelly Laurenston
Quiet little Darla Lewis couldn't be happier when the most-feared member of the South's rowdiest pack kidnaps her. A girl gets real tired of being overprotected by her own shifter family, and there's nothing like an oh-so-big bad wolf to start a pack feud, unleash her instincts--and have her surrender however and whenever she wants. . .

"Wed Or Dead" by Cynthia Eden
Gage Ryder knew his human bride had a wild side. But spending their honeymoon night on the run from hunters out to finish him and his pack is sure not the kind of fun he was looking forward to. No problem--Gage will do whatever it takes to lay bare Kayla's secrets and find the truth. If he can keep from being captured by his own seductive game. . ."

My Review: Let me start off this review by saying I really dislike having several authors/ different series in a novella book for a series I am trying to read. I really loved the story that is meant to go with the Pride series that I am reading by Shelly Laurenston. I loved getting to know the back story to Eggie and of course the Lewis sisters. The story brought a fun and at times comical element to some serious, mysterious and often intimidating characters of the series. The second story had absolutely nothing to do with the current series I am reading (in fact the only thing it had in common was wolf shifters and sex). I was lost as it seems this was part of a different series and it took almost the whole novella story to get characters straight. Again, I so dislike having multiple novellas by different authors in a single book, it takes me out of the series I am currently reading to have to sift through all the other stories to read the little bit that applies to my series.
My Rating: If this has just been Shelly Laurenston's book it would have gotten a four paw review but because they just had to throw in another novella (and then charge me an arm and a leg- seriously it was something like $11.99 for this book) I can't give it more than Two Paws and a Stump Wag. Seriously publishers, stop trying to add other authors in to get more money, please!
