Book Review: Tamed

Werewolves are real. And they make excellent pets.

Owning one of the legendary creatures is the latest fad. The WereHouse insists their werepets are loyal, docile, and 100% safe, but what happens when these gentle giants turn on their masters?

While on a routine EMS call, paramedic Christine Alt is attacked by a rogue werepet. She escapes with her life, but the encounter leaves her with more than just scars. As her body begins to change, she discovers the WereHouse is hiding a terrible secret, and they will stop at nothing to keep her from exposing them.

One of the downsides of purchasing or reviewing ebooks is that you are never quite sure just what you are getting into.  A great blurb can lead to a boring book and vice versa.  I consider myself lucky when an interesting blurb leads to an interesting book.  And TAMED is an interesting book.

It has be one of the more unique books that I have ran across in the paranormal/werewolf genre.  Rather then having the weres be a proud people, they are pets that don't remember their past.  There are those occassional rogues but they are taken care of quickly before they rock the boat.  That is until Christine is infected while out on an emergency call.  

I enjoyed both of the main love interests in TAMED but I don't really feel as though I got a chance to really get to know them because there were so many different story lines happening in this book.  All the story lines do get wrapped up by the end of the book but I think that I would have enjoyed the book more if Mr. Brown had instead concentrated on just a couple.   That would have allowed more time for the characters to grow.  As it stands now, I find that the love between the two main characters just wasn't that believable.

That being said, I did enjoy TAMED and will be keeping an eye out for future works from Mr. Brown.  I do recommend this book to any of my readers looking for a new take on the werewolf legends though I do want to impart a gentle warning about the violence in this book.  I rate this book a 3.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
