Delicious Reading!

When Gwyn, a quirky college student, bumps into Faden, a private investigator with a secret past, life as she knows it will not just change, but end. Faden can’t deny the powerful connection he and Gwyn have right from the start, a connection that pulls him towards her when he knows he should be staying away.

As his investigation into the town’s most recent murders heats up, his resolve weakens and he gives in to Gwyn’s pull, knowing that getting close to someone again would mean sharing his secret: he is Immortal. Little does he know that he will never get the chance to tell her himself. His past hunts him down, taking Gwyn prisoner and plunging them into a world they never knew existed.

Together they will be thrown into the midst of battle, befriending the very serial killer Faden has been hunting. Forced to leave their homes behind and run from the authorities, we watch as Gwyn helps Faden become the leader that destiny and fate has called him to be.

As many of you know, our very own bloggy buddy, Kristi Chestnutt wrote a book, The Wolf Within, and it was released last month.

And, of course, I snatched it up, immediately--devouring it in mere days. It was lovely! I mean, I know I may be a smidge (okay, okay! A big smidge) biased when it comes to Kristi's book, because, you know, she's just so awesome.

But, I will say this and it's completely, 100% true:

The Wolf Within is OMG, so freaking AWESOME!

The Wolf Within is a story of love, between Gwyn and Faden (and let me tell you, girls. Sigh. Faden is oh so dreamy!!!). But, TWW is more than just a love story (a very steamy love story, might I add). It's fueled by equal parts romance, mystery and action, which all culminate together to build a wonderful story that will leave you on the edge of your seat, frantically flipping the page to see what happens next.

And the fact that TWW is told in alternating chapters between Gwyn and Faden's POVs, only make it that much better. Getting an inside look into the MC's heads, helps the reader to form an unbreakable bond with the characters. Seriously guys, I was wondering what would happen after I finished for days. [I might have even asked (okay, begged) Kristi to give me a sneak peek at the sequel?! But she wouldn't dish. :( ]

The Wolf Within is beautifully written and a fabulous read. I can't wait for the sequel! So be sure to pick up your copy immediately!!

Also, be sure to check out my interview with Kristi!!!
