When your senses don’t work but your instincts do things can get very complicated.
Sex, Wolves and Rock ‘n’ Roll is a fun story about two male rock star wolves finding each other. They’re both in a band, The Lyric Hounds, and have yearned for each other in secret for years. The crux of the problem is that one of the wolves, K, has no sense of smell after being trapped in a fire as a child. This means he can’t smell his true mate, Sav, despite a yearning for him and the fact that he normally he beds women – lots of women! Lets just say he’s run out of bedposts for all those notches!
I liked how the story started straight in the action, in a packed room with the two heroes watching each other across the crowd. The tension was there from the beginning and it stayed hovering as I turned the pages. Both characters were likeable and the author switched between their viewpoints to enhance the story which I enjoyed.
The ‘world’ they live in is easy to lose yourself in, I enjoyed the small revelations about their history and hopes and fears, though at times this interrupted the flow, particularly in a sexy scene. I would recommend this book to fans of m/m paranormal and the 1 Night Stand series – which I personally love – as it is well written, hooks you from the start and the sexy bits, phew, they are sexy and certainly made the build up to the action well worth the wait. Ms Carter is an author to watch and for me her m/m writing is right up my street.
