My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Just as I really enjoyed this when it was originally published as Lone Wolf as part of the Bluewater Bay series, I still enjoyed it now it’s out on its own in the world with a new title and cover.
I will say though, that this was originally part of a series and while the names etc have been changed, there are still references to that series – which centred around the town where filming of the paranormal TV show based on the books mentioned in this narrative takes place.
But the story itself just appeals to me, it’s mostly about fanfic, how sometimes the authors of fanfic take the characters in directions the creators never imagined and sometimes those directions are not only good ones, they invigorate the original.
Whether this would ever happen in real life, I’m not sure as I believe authors are advised to stay away from fanfics of their work in case they inadvertently pick up ideas from it and leave themselves open to litigation.
Which is, in itself, a bit of a mind-bender given they’re the creators of the originals in the first place but hey, what do I know!?
Still, taken on its own, this is a steamy age gap with a silver fox author not quite romance which also looks at the pressures of fame and fan expectations in a way which feels utterly real and relatable.
