Logan Black, former Marine and bodyguard for the Seattle Wolf Pack, hates weddings and has no plan to walk the path to matrimonial misery. But when he’s hired to protect a hot-to-trot wedding planner with a werewolf stalker, he’s forced to put his feelings aside. Not such an easy task when the damsel can turn him on with a single smoldering glance.
Wedding planner Veronica Vale knows werewolves exist, but hates them. One bit her sister, changing their lives forever. When a sexy Marine shows his gorgeous face at one of her wedding appointments, Veronica finds it hard to focus on the task at hand.
The chemistry drawing Logan and Veronica together seems fated, but with Logan’s playboy attitude, Veronica’s hatred for werewolves, and a stalker lurking in the shadows, these two need more than passion to keep them together.
*Blurb from Goodreads*
I love weddings and I love shifters, so this book was right up my alley. I hadn’t read anything by Miller, but I was glad I got this one!
Veronica knows a little about shifters, but even after her sister was turned, she still can’t let go of her prejudice. When Logan shows up at one of her weddings, she is intrigued by the sexy man, and even goes so far as to put the moves on him. The last thing she ever expected him to tell her was that he knew her sister’s fiance, and that he was hired to keep her safe from a creepy werewolf stalker.
Logan has never been more intrigued by a woman, it’s too damn bad she is his charge, and hates all things werewolves. But he can’t seem to keep his emotions in check, especially as the danger surrounding her ramps up. Logan will do anything to keep Veronica safe, but when she finds out the truth, will she be able to accept both the wolf and the man?
I really enjoyed this story. I thought it was super cute, and the romance was so fun to see unfold – especially given Veronica’s dislike of all things wolf. That being said, there were a few things about Veronica that drove me absolutely batty. Her blind hatred for all things wolf was a little far-fetched, given how close she is with her sister. Despite the deep love and adoration she has for her sister, and the reluctant acceptance of her sister’s fiance, Veronica still didn’t seem to want to move an inch with her prejudice. It became a little obnoxious and unrealistic for me as the book went on.
But the romance… the romance was so cute. I adored the fact that Logan had to keep his wolfy ways a secret, especially given Veronica’s hatred toward them. Watching him try and woo her while keeping his secret was so much fun. However, I hated the fact that each time Veronica went off on the wolves, Logan was hurt a little more. Then again, it made him try that much harder to win her over and get her to fall in love with him. I thought they had great sexual chemistry, and the tension was so thick at times you could cut it with a knife!
Despite the problems I had with Veronica, I loved everything about Logan. He was patient in waiting for her to figure out that she not only loved him, but loved him as the wolf as well. I loved the fact that although he wanted nothing more than to get naked with Veronica at the first chance, he also wasn’t willing to risk not letting her in on the whole truth. It’s rare to see a hero in romance books today that will take a step back from the sexy times in order to make sure a woman has (almost) all the information about him before moving onto the next step.
The suspense subplot was good as well. It wasn’t a huge driver of the book though, it felt like it was more of a super small aspect to the romance. While it was the main reason Logan and Veronica were brought together, the stalker always seemed to be at the back of their minds as they navigated their new relationship. Granted, when the bad guy finally made his move, he went all out to get what he wanted.
All in all I enjoyed my first Miller read. I thought the romance was super cute, and our hero melted my heart. I adored everything about him, and his character made up for the fact that I had some issues with our heroine’s prejudices. I will definitely look at getting other books from Miller in the future.
I give Four Weddings and a Werewolf a B
