ARC Review: The Wolf at Bay (Big Bad Wolf, #2) by Charlie Adhara

The Wolf at Bay (Big Bad Wolf, #2)
From the Blurb:

Going home digs up bad memories, so it’s something Bureau of Special Investigations agent Cooper Dayton tries to avoid. When he’s guilted into a visit, Cooper brings along Oliver Park, his hot new werewolf partner, in the hopes the trip will help clarify their status as a couple…or not. 
When Park’s keen shifter nose uncovers a body in the yard and Cooper’s father is the prime suspect, Cooper knows they’re on their own. Familial involvement means no sanctioned investigation. They’ll need to go rogue and solve the mystery quietly or risk seeing Cooper’s dad put behind bars. 
The case may be cold, but Park and Cooper’s relationship heats up as they work. And yet if Cooper can’t figure out what’s going on between them outside of the bedroom, he’ll lose someone he… Well, he can’t quite put into words how he feels about Park. He knows one thing for sure: he’s not ready to say goodbye, though with the real killer inching ever closer…he may not have a choice.

Ky's rating:

Amazing story!

The mystery was soooo good. The suspence had me reluctant to stop reading even though it was the middle of the night and I had an early morning. And the romance? That had a nice comfy spot in the plot as well.

Bit by bit the fantastic world that Charlie Adhara created for her characters is revealed to us and we can do nothing but buckle on and get ready for the ride.

There is no paragraph after paragraph of information about what being a werewolf means and I liked that. The details we get are few and far between, but the clues and the teasers are all over the place. The half sentences drove me crazy with curiosity about what their end was supposed to be. For some we get the answer a few pages later. For others we'll have to wait some more. We did get some answers and some details about Parker's past though so I can't complain.

With the third book having the title "Thrown to the Wolves" my guess is that Oliver and Cooper are going over to Oliver's family. And maybe this time we'll get to see a wolf on page and learn a bit more about them. Only three more months to find out!
