Review: Wolf Slayer (The Order of the Wolf # 2) by Angela Addams

She would have made his next breath his last, if he hadn’t stolen hers.

Order of the Wolf, Book 2

Aubrey Devlin thought she had a destiny—to become a Huntress, be mated to a Hunter, and spend her life in everlasting, werewolf ass-kicking bliss. But after years of honing her wolf-slaying skills, it’s her twin sister who’s chosen for the coveted honor.

Swallowing her disappointment, she takes a job as head of security for the band Riot. Staying professional is tough when it comes to the band’s sex-god bassist, an alpha bad-boy to the extreme. She will keep her mind on her work—as soon as she figures out how to stop drooling over the man.

Jaylon isn’t good with women—especially those with the ability to kill him—yet he knows without a doubt Aubrey is his mate. Now if only he can get the stubborn woman to fall for him.

One argument too many, and instead of clawing each other’s eyes out, they wind up clawing each other’s clothes off. It’s then that Jaylon realizes the truth: Aubrey is a true Huntress. He’d better find a way to claim his mate before a Hunter claims her first…

Warning: Sexually explicit (like ripping-clothes-off, sex-in-public-places explicit) language. Rock-star bad-ass with long hair and a wicked bite. A take-no-crap huntress who bites back. You are encouraged to lick, suck, and devour your way through this tasty treat in one sitting—just be aware you might be hungry for more.

Aubrey has been training to be a Huntress since she was a child. When a Hunter comes and claims her sister but she is left out, she feels like she must not be Huntress material and vows to move on with her life. She takes a job for a rock band that, unbeknownst to her, is a werewolf pack and contains her mate.

I liked the premise of this story but the execution left a bit to be desired. I didn’t feel the connection between Aubrey and Jaylon was all that strong. It seemed mostly to be a physical attraction. They barely know each other but they are drawn to each other even though they can’t have a civil conversation. It was confusing. They don’t actually have all that many scenes together. This book is third person, mainly from Aubrey’s point of view so we don’t get too much information on Jaylon. I didn’t feel like I knew him so I wasn’t all that invested in the story or the outcome.

This is a novella so there isn’t a lot of detail given to the world but this book needed more world building. The ‘rules’ aren’t always clear and it would have been nice if it was described. I did enjoy the secondary characters. I would have liked to see them interact more instead of just being told about it after the fact. This is the second book in The Order of the Wolf series. I haven’t read book one so I’m not sure if they should be read in order. It would probably give the reader more details about the characters and the world.

    Thanks for the honest review. I wish it had been better. I’ve never read any of Addams’ work. Maybe I’ll for something else to be my first read. Great review.
