Guest Review: Wolfmanny by Julia Talbot
When Kenneth Marcon loses his nanny to a bite from one of his inherited kids, he knows he needs someone strong to contain five werewolf children. What he finds isn’t a stalwart nanny, but a werewolf manny named Jack. Kenneth and his assistant, Miles, aren’t sure if Jack is what they need, but he’s what they have to work with.
Jack’s got what it takes to keep the kids busy—and attract both Miles’s and Kenneth’s attention. The two old friends have been circling each other for years, but with Jack as the final piece to the puzzle, it’s time to finally act on those urges. When Kenneth is forced to travel instead of solidifying the bond with his new mates, Jack and Miles take desperate measures to get him back, even as they save the kids from one disaster after another. Amidst the chaos, they have to learn how to become not just a pack, but a family.
Reviewer: Shee Reader
Really, when I saw this book was available for review, I nearly dislocated my arm trying so hard to request it! I really enjoy Julia’s writing, and really, with hot wolfy men included, what’s not to like? It is an MMM menage which really just adds to the fun!
Kenneth loses his nanny (an ostrich shifter) after she is bitten by one of his inherited kids. His sister died leaving her five babies with their father, but he soon lost the spot and dropped them off at uncle Kenneth’s mansion. As a serious business man, he has more than enough resources to take care of the kids, and he loves them fiercely, but five wolf shifter kids can’t be cared for by a prey animal!
After calling a favour with an old friend, Kenneth manages to source himself a Wolf shifter whose specialisms include education and antiterrorism! Jack puts his planned vacation on hold and heads up to the very very cold reaches of Colorado to take care of the CEO’s kids. A fifteen year old struggling with the teen stuff and new shifting, a twelve year old/nine year old trouble twin pack and three year old twins. Never one to shy from a challenge, Jack packs his bag, and gets on his way.
Jack is right in the middle of it right away, and Kenneth manages to let him. Kenneth’s right hand man and pack Beta, Miles has always been there for Kenneth in business and as his best friend, but Jack’s arrival changes the dynamic a whole lot, and Kenneth starts to see Miles with new eyes. The three men are mates, and the chemistry is red hot, but the consumption takes a while.
Kenneth is taken away on business and Miles accompanies him, despite the fact that Miles usually stays home. They both trust Jack to keep the kids safe and keep the home fires burning while they are away.
When the trip drags on and on, Kenneth sends Miles home and part of him believes that Jack and Miles would be better off without him. They disagree, and Jack calls an old friend and has Kenneth kidnapped and brought home. The incomplete mating bond has been agony for all the men, but Kenneth, being alone, is far sicker than the others. Then follows reuniting of the three hot men and all the children. There’s Christmas, New Years and a new batch of desperate kids to take in, plus some lovely intriguing new men for the pack. I sure do hope there will be more books for their stories!
I absolutely loved this book!
The men are hot and strong, the kids are adorable and hilarious, the wolfiness is amazing, and fuzzing out and playing in the snow is a highlight! There are so many great parts to the story, but a favourite for me was almost all the other characters in the story were shifters of various kinds. Such a great part to the tale! I also adored the ‘dad’ name the kids used for Kenneth was so cute.
There were twists and some suspense, the emotion was very relatable, and the characters were so very appealing from the outset.
If big hot shifters who are loving and nurturing is your thing, this is a must read book!
