Review: This Weakness for You by Wendy Sparrow

She's exactly what he wants to sink his teeth into...Jordan Hill is his pack's Alpha. The Big Bad Wolf. And after his last breakup, he's opting to be the lone wolf, too. But then his rival's little sister—a human, of all creatures—comes to his door. And suddenly, what should be a tasty little snack turns out to be something more than Jordan could ever imagine...Christa Hansen  is simply looking for a place to stay. Yet the dark shifter smells irresistibly like forever. But getting involved with the wolf who tried to kill her brother—twice—is lunacy. Besides, in the unforgiving, shadowed world of shifters, there is no room for weakness. And falling for her family's enemy won't just be her will be his, too.

Jordan Hill is the Alpha of his pack. When he finds out that poachers are threatening his pack once again, he decided to take the fight to them. That is until he meets Christa, the sister of a man he’s tried to kill twice but who is now a member of his pack. When they meet he immediately knows she’s his mate. Her scent calls to him so he knows they are scent-matched. Unfortunately his last scent match didn’t turn out so well so he decided he needs to keep Christa at a distance.

Christa has no idea that Lycans are real. When she meets Jordan and he acts strangely toward her and her brother starts talking crazy about scent mates she just chalks it up to his new baby. But when she goes to stay with him she eventually finds herself at Jordans house and her whole world is opened up.

This is my first book by Sparrow and I quite enjoyed it. The humor is liberally laced throughout the story so even when things would get serious there wasn’t a funny moment far off. The characters were interesting and unique and fun to read about. There were a few times I wanted to slap Jordan upside the head but as the book progressed he got the hang of being a mate and showed a lot of growth where Christa was concerned. I really enjoyed the world building and the way Lycans are portrayed. It had similar elements to the typical lycan but also its own unique quirks as well. Some of the best parts of the book were when the characters (usually Jordan) would be having two separate conversations since lycans have such good hearing and Christa is human. I thought it was interesting how Sparrow took something that could have been very confusing and she just made it really funny.

There is a book that comes before this one called Past My Defenses which is about Christa’s brother. I didn’t read them in order but I do think that a lot of things would make more sense if I had. This book dealt with some of the aftermath of the events of that book even though it is two years later. I would suggest reading the books in order. Plus Jordan is introduced in the first book along with several other characters that have reoccurring roles.

    I loved book one. It was so funny. I mean a werewolf who is highly allergic to everything was just hilarious. Can’t wait to read this one.
