Down and Dirty

It’s an enjoyable UF free on KU – worth checking out.

What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

Baker turned werewolf – there’s no way this could go wrong. 

Rosalyn Mercier had a clear dream in life – to become a baker for the rich and famous. She spent the first twenty-four years of her life working towards that. Then she was bitten by a rogue loup garou (that’s a wolf shifter to non-supernaturals), and that dream went up in a puff of vanilla-scented smoke.

The council of supernaturals task Rosalyn with tracking down the rogue and bringing them to justice. She’s put under the watchful eye of brooding alpha with a dark past, Cole Loxwood. Together they must work to help Rosalyn come to terms with her new life while hunting down the rogue who is leaving a trail of bodies in their wake.

As Rosalyn digs deeper into the identity of the rogue she comes to realise that no one around her is quite what they seem. She’s soon left with no idea who she can trust. As the bodies pile up Rosalyn must race to find out who the rogue is before it’s too late.


Enjoyable UF

I love it when you have a kickass FMC who stands up for herself, knows her worth and comes to grips with who she is. This first person romp is almost like that, though it harbors a bit more “growing into her skin” than “knowing her skin”.

I’ve got issues, but I think they’ll be smoothed in book 2.


First Person, Single POV

Ending Type


Steam Level

Slow Burn M/F only.


  • New take on old tales.
  • Love the FMC.
  • She finally wakes up.
  • Cole. He’s an ass. Is it ok to love him?
  • The Grim… a paranormal WWW. 😂


  • Ooookay….. so she’s a what kind of garou? (I will not put spoilers here – you’ll get it when you read it). That’s just dropped in there at the end…. did I miss the reveal? What?
    – That best friend… WTF?
    – The council… ugh.


4 out of 5 Stars

It’s decent and definitely worth looking into.
