ARC Review: All's Fair in Mate Bonds and Publishing by Alana Ankh

All's Fair in Mate Bonds and Publishing (Confessions of a Werewolf Editor #1)From the blurb:
For Killian Marsden, werewolf romance is overrated. After all, he should know, since he’s a half-werewolf and an editor for a romance-publishing house. He’s tired of reading mate bond fairytales, because real life doesn’t work that way. In the real world, Alphas abandon their half-breed children. Not that Killian’s jaded or anything. Simply realistic. So when werewolf Alpha Brett comes knocking, demanding explanations on a rejected manuscript, Killian reels away, or at least tries to.

Brett is a walking, talking Alpha cliché: big, possessive, and growly. His last name is Wolfe, for crying out loud. But Brett is also trustworthy, devoted to his pack, and a little silly when in love. Soon, Killian discovers that maybe, just maybe, he might love Brett in return.

Unfortunately, Killian is not the only one who wants to claim Brett. He will have to set aside his beliefs about mate bonds and deadbeats if he wants his own happily ever after werewolf romance.

Heather's rating: 

This story is FULL of romance cliches.

Evil bitch ex-girlfriend? Check!
Insta-love? Check!
"Mine" growly mate? Check!

But do you know what the difference is between this book and all of the other shifter books out there? This story KNOWS it's being cliche. In fact, it outright mocks itself.

Killian is a lowly editor for a romance book publisher, and he is sick of werewolves. He keeps reading the same tired plots over and over again. To make matters worse, he is half werewolf himself, courtesy of his absentee father.

Brett is the alpha werewolf of his pact, and though he's fooled around with a guy a couple times before, he considers himself pretty straight... until he scents Killian.

This story is campy and sometimes silly, but it was fun. It is soap opera-ish in many ways, but it owns that fact. I honestly enjoyed it much more than I expected to. I also couldn't get enough of the book poking fun at the romance genre! It was like an inside joke for all romance readers out there. A enjoyable little read.
