Happy Book Birthday~ Richie by VA Dold!!

NOTE: Complete novel. No cliffhanger. Dual POV. New Orleans Billionaire Wolf Shifters with plus sized BBW for mates. This is an adult paranormal romance with erotic content. It also includes vampires, voodoo priestess, and magic. These are stand alone books that create a series. They do not need to be read in order. Of course, the story is richer if the books are read in order.

Four years ago, Richie met a group of Tulane freshmen when he saved one of them from a mugger.

Now the first of their menagerie is getting married.

Surprise of all surprises, Richie meets his mate, Piper, at the wedding in Missouri, of all places.

He didn’t expect her to be a bounty hunter or that her murderous prey had turned the tables and she was now the hunted.

Will Piper apprehend her bounty or will her bounty get to her first?

Can Richie save her from the death he foresaw in a premonition?

Injuries are mounting and time is running out.

As quietly as possible he slipped in and searched for an open seat. A hasty scan of the room showed only one vacant chair. Great, obviously he was the last person to arrive. Without causing too much disturbance, he walked to the front of the room and took his seat between Billie and Karen.
Piper’s gaze had swung to the double doors the instant they cracked open. She scrutinized the man slipping in. A relieved breath escaped the instant she got a good look at him, and verified it wasn’t Qball crashing the dinner. But for some reason, the stranger raised a flock of birds in her stomach. She never reacted to strangers so strongly.
She didn’t dare look too closely. The last thing she needed was this guy catching her gawking at him. Her aunt always said she started flirting the instant she left the womb. Flirting, my ass, she thought, shaking her head to herself. Her aunt never could tell the difference between profiling and flirting. She’d been profiling people her entire life. That was one of the reasons she’d gone into her chosen profession.

Experience taught her the best way to guard her heart was to thoroughly study the enemy and be prepared. And that was what she intended to do.
Too many of the opposite sex came armed with charm and playful banter. The problem was, most of the time the guy was faking it to get into the girl’s pants. But this guy looked like no one she’d ever seen. For some reason he didn’t fit her normal profile.
She glanced his way out of the corner of her eye as he took the empty chair at her table. His manicured five o’clock shadowed jaw was well defined and he had perfectly sculpted lips. But it was his eyes that captured her attention, a warm brown color with flecks of gold. To complete her assessment, she forced her gaze from his face.
Nice, he had a head of gorgeous dark brown hair. It wasn’t long by any means, just long enough to sink her fingers into. Where the hell did that come from?
Richie was relieved to see Helen, Karen and Billie were seated at his table. Thank Goddess, he had someone to talk to. He smiled brightly and was nodding his hellos when a delectable scent tickled his nose. He smelled the most mouthwatering crawfish boil - ever. He glanced at the woman across the round table, his breath hitched, and his heart constricted. Holding her gaze, his nostrils flared as he breathed her in.

Her eyes widened and she quickly looked around. She must have heard him telepathically and was searching for someone near who may have spoken. Odds were she didn’t understand what she’d experienced and was suspicious.
Frowning, she turned her attention back to the table. Then she caught herself and carefully straightened her napkin in her lap while she fixed a pleasant smile on her face. Satisfied she managed to appear outwardly calm, she glanced up and froze.
For the first time, she took in his entire face, where before she’d been analyzing each feature separately. The man who joined the table right before she swore she heard a voice in her head was gorgeous. Not just hot, but please God, let me strip him naked and lick him, gorgeous.
He must be an actor or a model. She racked her brain, but she couldn’t remember her cousin, Bob, ever saying he knew someone famous.

My Review

Ok I absolutely love Richie!! I think he may be the sweetest of them all so far. He's so gentle and charming. And I think Piper is bad ass. She is a force. But we are on a road trip for a good bit of this one but let me say I think we have met Etienne's mate in this one!! I seriously hope I'm right :) 

Richie is smart and sweet and of course gorgeous. He's a master at being charismatic and loves people. He's also in trouble with Piper lol he's not one to let the lady do the heavy lifting but he starts to see that she needs to have her own independence. I loved his little secret friend watching over her. It the fact that there's another hawt wolf who needs help is going to make another sexy book to come. :) 

Piper is seriously a good heroine in her own right. She's not scared or shy or embarrassed and she knows what she wants. But she's struggling to see a future with Richie- in the beginning. Her crazy stalker is just creepy. And I loved that she was willing to put herself at risk for the guy- it's usually the other way around. 

And then when we finally make it home to the south, things heat up- but not the humidity lol the real action happens and we get to see some of our favorites return to help out. I of course love this whole series and the writing is fantastic as usual! I will continue to praise this series because it's the perfect paranormal romance and I love that it's set near my home :) so of course I give this one 5 WOLFY PAWS!!

Her idea of absolute heaven is a day in the French Quarter with her computer, her coffee mug, and the Brothers, of course. Or a night with a sexy cowboy in the hayloft.
