Title: The Werewolf of Grey Lake Inn Author: Megan Derr Publisher: Less Than Three Press Release Date: December 23, 2015 Genre(s): Contemporary/Paranormal Page Count: 14,000 words Reviewed by: Renée Heat Level: 2 flames out of 5 Rating: 3.9 stars out of 5 Blurb:
Astor is tired—tired of his family and the way they never listen to his advice, and tired of being in love with his agent, Tennyson, who after a one night stand made it clear he preferred to keep things professional. The only thing Astor’s not tired of is his job researching haunted inns and hotels to prove just how haunted they’re not.
His latest book is about a notorious inn in the middle of nowhere, and a haunting he suspects has more to do with real werewolves than fake ghosts. It will provide fodder for an excellent non-fiction book, the novel he’s secretly writing, and be so distracting he’ll finally be able to get over Tennyson.
Except when he arrives it’s to find that Tennyson is already there, with every intention of keeping Astor company through the holidays.
This was a very cute novella. Astor, a writer, had a smoking hot one-nighter with a man whom he would’ve loved to spend more time with. But he woke up to an empty bed. The next day he met his new agent. And, of course, it was Tennyson, the dream man from the night before.
The story begins 9 months into their writer/agent relationship. Astor is arriving on location to do research for his next book, and Tennyson surprises him by already being in the hotel room next to him.
There is a paranormal element to this story that was interesting and didn’t overpower the story at all. I loved Astor’s snarkyness and Tennyson’s ability to push right back or let it glance right off of him. There were some very sweet moments. Low steam in this one though.
