Beowolf and Roxie by Marisa Chenery
Series: Wulf’s Den Book #1
Author: Marisa Chenery
When Roxie and her friend, Candice, decided on a girls’ night out she didn’t realize Wulf’s Den would be more than she had anticipated. But Roxie soon learned to expect anything. The presence of a super-abundance of super good looking men surprised her, and when the best of the bunch stared at her as if he wanted to devour her, surprise turned to amazement.
Beowulf recognized her as his mate the instant she crossed his path and her scent filled his lungs. But he had to overcome one hurdle. She was not one of his kind–a werewolf. He had waited for years to find his mate and he would claim her even if she was a mortal. He would soon teach her all about werewolves.
Roxie is caught up in strange events. Archaic markings appear on her wrist, and strong forces threaten to tear her away from her love as two other male werewolves try to claim her as their own. Would Roxie and Beowulf be able to keep the bond love had forged or would they lose each other forever?

Review: This book was recommended to me through Goodreads, based on other selections that I liked. And they did not go wrong! While the book IS very typical of the werewolf genre, there are a enough twists and turns to keep you interested. It’s interesting even from the start, but it really starts picking up toward the middle of the book. And the further along things went, the better the book became! By the end, the author had really won me over. My main critique on the book is just that I can’t imagine a set of parents keeping so much stuff from their daughter when it comes to her heritage – particularly when she comes to them and is obviously upset and worried. They instead wait until everything has gone to crap before they tell her! That was a bit hard to buy for me, but really just a small thing overall. I was excited to discover that Chenery has continued on, giving other characters in the novel their own books…I look forward to continuing on with the series and reading even more by this author!
