Book Review: Witches and Wolves by Kelly D. Smith

I was excited when I saw this on *Netgalley because it is very unusual these days for find a lesbian romance novel. M/M is all over the place but I rarely ever see W/W. So I figured I'd give this one a try as it was short one

Tory is a witch who lives all alone in a house left to her by her grandmother. One night an unfamiliar wolf shows up at her door and curls up in her bed. The next morning the wolf has transformed into a beautiful woman. Tory helps Gee, who is new to being a werewolf. But soon hunters are on Gee's trail.

Ok so I have mixed feelings about this book. There was a lot and I do mean A LOT of potential but I think due to the size of the book where it could have gone right it just didn't. The problem sometimes with short stories/novellas is that it is hard to get vested in characters or to really learn about them. I think a longer book would have done so much for this book. As it is it was rushed and so much of it fell flat for me.

Why did the witch have better hearing than a wolf? That part had me scratching my head. I also found Gee to be too needy and too polite. The whole I don't want to intrude thing became annoying.

I honestly thing there is potential here and if the author made it a full length novel and extended out the tension between Gee and Tory and put in more action scenes and developed the characters more this would be an awesome book. Also stop making Gee so weak. She is a wolf now she should be strong than that.

Even though I am rating this low I would like to see more works by this author.

2 out of 5 stars.

*I recieved a copy of this from netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
