Jeffrey Grimm’s grandfather, Odin, tortured and nearly killed his twin sister. He’s on a mission to return the favor. To get the job done, he needs the world’s oldest living laser-hair-removal candidate: Fenrisùlfr, the werewolf prophecy has decreed will kill Odin at Ragnarrok.
When he gets to Norway, though, he discovers the wolf can change into a man…a man so sexy that Jeff is blindsided with lust. And, despite his blood ties to Odin, Fen wants him with equal ferocity.
An attraction to the blood kin of his oldest enemy? Fenris figures he must have been caged far too long. Yet as soon as the magical phrase that frees him leaves Jeff’s lips, Fenris has no choice. He is bound to protect Jeff at all costs, even if it means giving up his hatred of the man who betrayed him—and learning to live with the horrors of toothpaste and the Internet.
Odin isn’t through with him, though. And when he gets his hands on Jeff, Fen calls upon everything within him to fulfill the prophecy… even if it means his own death.
This book contains explicit male/male sex, graphic language, a redhead with a temper and the ultimate werewolf. Caution, drooling may be an unfortunate side effect.
Dana Marie Bell is one of my favorite authors, and this third installment of her True Destiny series does NOT disappoint! Howl for Me is a M/M story and all the great characters from the other two stories are present and integral to the plot, so if you haven’t read Very Much Alive and Eye of the Beholder, be sure to pick those up first and you won’t regret it.
The True Destiny series is based on the Norse Pantheon of gods and goddesses. In this story Fenrisùlfr or Fen (the original werewolf), the son of Logan (Loki the god of Mischief), is rescued by Jeff and his twin sister Jamie, along with Jamie’s fiancé Travis (Tyr the god of Justice). I know it sounds complicated, but I swear if you read the stories and world that Ms. Bell creates in modern-day Philadelphia it make sense!
Jeff is fully human when he meets Fen, but Fen knows right away that Jeff is his mate, he just has to go about proving it to Jeff. To make matters worse and lighten the mood of the story, Fen has been trapped in a cave for centuries and has to learn about this “new” world he has entered.
The love story and Jeff and Fen is quite good and all of the other characters and the greater plot are woven together beautifully. I don’t want to give away too much because the end of this book leaves the reader hanging, but suffice it to say that Jeff and Fen are great together and we hope that ultimately good will triumph over evil no matter how hard Odin tries to flip that script! Basically this story mde me snort-laugh out loud, cry and has me chomping at the bit for the next installment, which in my world are the components of a good story!
Ms. Bell is an author who blurs the lines between gender specific romance seamlessly. Whether she is writing straight, bi, or gay, her stories always draw the reader in. If you aren’t so sure about M/M, starting with this series might be a good start. In fact Very Much Alive was one of the first MMF books I read and now I’m hooked! But if you prefer straight MF paranormal romance, her Halle Puma books are great! I hope you enjoy this book and series as much as I do! Happy reading
