“Review in thirty words:
Are you a happily married man in his thirties suffering from a testosterone deficiency? Why not become a werewolf? It's great fun, except when it's not!

“Very quick read, fast paced and engaging, but not enough meat in the areas of conflict. The premise of the book is entertaining. ”Christine B wrote this review Thursday, February 2, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Interesting take on the whole werewolf thing. Stay at home dads? Why not? Kind of gross at times, though.”Cynthia R wrote this review Friday, November 4, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Really not as good as Toby Barlow's "Sharp Teeth", so the LA werewolves outshine the New York werewolves ten to one. The clever creation of a pack of stay at home dads drives the novel. Michael and his father are great creations, but Simon and Alison are not likable. I do think Simon becomes stronger as he becomes a werewolf and I will read the second in the series. Really if Simon and Alison are true reflections of the average New York parents, then maybe New Yorkers just shouldn't be parents. They are really awful parents. Love the descriptions of Simon and Olivia experiencing their new abilities. ”jeannemarie1 wrote this review Saturday, August 13, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“This was heading into the four star category until I started to reach the end. Read the blurb about the book and you will get the idea of the book. I could not really tell you more about the contents because I would be giving something away, and I do not like to do that. Now lets talk mashed potatoes. Ever had a nice pile of mashed taters on your plate, covered in your favorite gravy of course. You just cannot see it, because the gravy is covering it, but once you bite into it, you have those little lumps of under cooked taters. Now the first thing you think is, "That was unpleasant". And next you are looking for the dog so you can scoop the offending taters onto the floor hoping the dog eats them before the wife sees what you have done.
This book reminded me of that. As I neared the end I was thinking that the author was going to have to have an additional 100 pages magically appear to explain, and finish, his wonderful story. No magic book fairy appeared and I was left contemplating the lumps. What happens in the end? Who does what? Hell I don't know! I have read books in the past that leave the reader hanging but here I felt totally at a loss. Is there going to be a sequel? Well I sure hope so!
A good book that could have been better there is still some entertainment value here. Now I have to get off my soapbox so I can do some research to find out if there is going to be a sequel. ”
