Sometimes Living in the Big Apple Really Bites!

Eighteen-year-old rock star Sam Lee isn’t like other girls. She’s the super-talented bass player and songwriter for an all-girl indie band and an incurable loner. Then one night after a concert in Central Park, she’s attacked by a wild dog.

Suddenly, this long-time vegetarian is craving meat–the bloodier, the better. Sam finds herself with an unbelievable secret and no one she trusts to share it. And so begin the endless lies to cover up the hairy truth…

When a new girl gang appears in the city–with claws and paws–Sam suspects there’s a connection to her own inner beast. Trapped in a tug-of-war between her animal and human selves, forced to choose between the guy who sparked her carnal appetite and the one who makes her feel like a normal teenage girl, Sam has to unravel the mysteries of the werewolf world before her bandmates, her mother, and the media catch up to her.

Why I’m waiting…

I have never been much into werewolves or shifters, but this book sounds like a lot of fun. Blending an awesome setting like New York with an all-girl indie band, then add werewolves on top of that? Yeah, it feels like Juno meets American Werewolf in Paris to me. Ha! I have to check this one out!

    I agree with you, this one definitely sounds more humorous than supernatural. I feel like this one has potential to really be hilarious!

    I just snagged this one on NG because it does sound so fun! I’m not one for werewolf books but the other elements really appeal to me.

  • The werewolf element puts me off but I love the sound of the New York setting and Indie bank element. Sounds fun, thanks for sharing.

  • Sounds fun 🙂

    Sounds like a fun read! And a cute cover–maybe a different spin on the weres 🙂 Enjoy.
