Kitty and the Midnight

Synopsis:

Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station – and a werewolf in the closet. Her new late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged is a raging success, but it’s Kitty who can use some help. With one sexy werewolf-hunter and a few homicidal undead on her tail, Kitty may have bitten off more than she can chew?

What I thought:

For the first book in the series, this was a good one. If you are looking for your normal paranormal romance book, this is not it. The author provides the reader with a fresh twist on werewolves. Kitty was attached by a wolf and struggles to keep ahold of her human side along with her wolf. In the beginning of the book, her character is weak and she is at the bottom of the pack. But throughout the book, she discovers who she is or who she wants to be and her character starts to change. This book is full action, romance, and the book is never dull.

What I really enjoyed about this book is that throughout it, the author asks the question- is a behavior right, morally, because it is instinctual? 

Quotes:

“I’m a werewolf trapped in a human body.”
“Well, yeah, that’s kind of the definition.”
“No, really. I’m trapped.”
“Oh? When was the last time you shape-shifted?”
“That’s just it – I’ve never shape-shifted.”
“So you’re not really a werewolf.”
“Not yet. But I was meant to be one, I just know it. How do I get a werewolf to attack me?”
Stand in the middle of a forest under a full moon with a raw steak tied to your face, holding a sign that says, ‘Eat me; I’m stupid’?”
