Wolves' Wife (Confessions of a Mail Order Bride #4) by Kate Kent


Heat Rating

For the life of me I can not figure out how I managed to finish this book. I think I lost interest about half way through when the word ‘delish’ came up. I have only ever heard that word in movies where snobby upper crust mucky muck females seem to think that saying ‘delish’ is cool, to each his own. Then I came across the words ‘heavy denims’ and now I am wondering where Kate Kent comes from because I don’t think I have ever heard that phrase before in this country. Finally, there is the icing on the cake and begs the question; who uses the word ‘hiney’ in the middle of a sex scene? I used that word when my kids were little, when speaking to them about wiping their little bottoms during potty training, so ‘hiney’ was a mood killer. On the good side, there were no spelling or grammar errors to be found.

Book Cover Rating 
When I initially saw this cover after finishing Wolves' Wife, I thought the cover didn’t match the story but then I realized the wolf is the other brother. The only thing I really like about this cover is the wolf, yes, I know there is a torso with a six pack too but it’s cliché and doesn’t stand out. It says Wolves' Wife is about two brothers but it doesn’t scream romance or even passion, there isn’t even a subtle hint of those things.

Book Blurb Rating
The blurb basically matches the story but I think the question at the end is missing a question mark and that reminds me of a question I have. Why do some blurbs end with questions? To be honest I don’t even think the questions are needed and in this case, they almost give away more of the story then the beginning of the blurb does.
