Book Review: The Werewolf Wears Prada

The Werewolf Wears Prada (San Francisco Wolf Pack) by Kristin Miller


The Werewolf Wears PradaMelina Rosenthal worships at the altar of all things fashion. Her dream is to work for the crème de la crème fashion magazine, Eclipse, and she'll do much anything to get there. Even fixing up the image of a gorgeous, sexy public figure who's all playboy, all the time. Even if he's the guy who broke her heart a year ago...

Even if Hayden Dean is a werewolf.

Since his father's death, Hayden's the heir apparent to the San Francisco Wolf Pack—well, once he settles down. Hayden isn't interested in giving up his partying ways, except he's pretty sure he's found his fated mate, and the fact that she's a non-shifter is bad news. Now he must find a compromise between the traditions of his wolf world and his certainty that Melina is his...before fate (or another werewolf) bites them both in the butt.

Review

In the new spin-off series of Kristin Miller's Seattle Wolf Pack, now called San Francisco Wolf Pack. Hayden Dean has the image of bad boy/playboy factor, but once his father had passed away he's next to be alpha. But Hayden seems to be neglecting that duty and with rouges killing humans on the rise he need to change things around. 

How can that happen? 

Bring in Melina Rae the girl he meet once before and broke her heart
Melina is one step closer to her dream job, but the one thing that stands in her way is Hayden Dean. She must turn his bad boy/playboy image into a suave suit-wearing/take it serious guy. 

Can Melina change him or will he change her? 

Or will they change each other?

I give this 5 Cat's Tails Up!!! Kristin blew my worry away, she delivers new twists to the San Francisco pack that wasn't in the Seattle Pack. I can't wait to see what comes next in this series

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW

WHEW what can I say about this book? I LOVE IT!!!! Now I'll be completely honest I was concern about how Kristin was going to part from the Seattle Wolf Pack storyline and the repetitive that she was going to do as far to the world of her werewolves. However, Kristin really blew me away within the first three chapters, I could already tell that this was different and nothing close to how her Seattle Characters found their luminary.

I love that she play with the idea of bringing a playboy characteristics which is exactly who Hayden Dean is with the exception that he grows fur and turn into a four-legging wolf every full moon. So how does Hayden go from being a playboy to suitable alpha? Not without a little help from Melina whom he met before and broke her heart. PS I also love how Kristin created this kind of "past love" even though for both Hayden and Melina that they only met once and instantly connected. 
Can Hayden make the changes in his life to prove his worth of being alpha?

Beware of the Wolf ..They Dont Just Hide in Sheep Skin  !

Melina clearly has goals, she is what you call maybe the overachiever in order to get to where she want to be in life and an top end fashion magazine called Eclipse. Melina also is very into fashion, PRADA, Versace, Armani, you name it although I could never and would never be able to own any of those name brands. In the story Melina is one step closer to getting her dream job BUT she has to change the image of a playboy which just so happen to be the GUY that asked her out a year ago, stood her up and broke her heart.
Will Melina be able to pull off her one shot at the dream or will something destroy it all?

Oh, I love this Prada dress. I love the button detail and what a great red!

San Francisco has more rouge problems then Seattle ever did (as far we know) it seems that San Francisco started parting packs when the old alpha has died and his son Hayden is next in line although no one believes that he should be given that title if he isn't showing suitable alpha materials.

So there's a struggle for power and control of the entire San Francisco pack, but for now Hayden must do everything he can to prove that he is alpha-worthy and Melina just might be the one to help him to it. 

After reading The werewolf wears Prada, a little seed idea came to me but I'm keeping it to myself although I'll probably rant to Kristin on this idea. I don't know whose going to be the main focus in book two, I would think Gabriel, Hayden right hand man but then again it could be someone else that is just so small of a character that you don't notice him or her.

I'm glad that Kristin was able to make her wolf pack/luminary world with a little diversity, the first SF pack had an interesting diverse that I wonder what the next book is going to be. Even the third book since this particular series/world is three books.
