Book Review: Werewolf in Las Vegas (Wild About You #6) by Vicki Lewis Thompson + giveaway

Werewolf in Las Vegas (Wild About You #6)
By: Vicki Lewis Thompson
Paperback, 336 pages
Published March 4th 2014 by Signet

Win it all, or lose it all…

Giselle Landry is in Las Vegas to haul her wayward brother back home. But casino owner Luke Dalton is also looking for her brother, who has run off with his little sister. The two should join forces, but Luke is unaware that Giselle’s brother is also fleeing his duties as the future alpha of the Landry werewolf pack—which includes his Were bride.

The Landrys don’t believe in Weres mating with humans, and Giselle is no exception. Though Luke is wealthy, gorgeous, and protective, Giselle can’t let herself get close to him, even to solve their shared dilemma. But the tension wears away her resistance, and after a wild night with Luke, she is shocked to find she’s fallen for him.

But Luke still doesn’t know Giselle’s true identity. And once their siblings are found, Giselle must return to San Francisco. Can they overcome the odds—or will what happened in Vegas stay in Vegas?
Vicki Lewis Thompson has done it again! Werewolf in Las Vegas is a flashy, fun, romantic romp that made me smile, laugh out loud and sigh.

What’s always fun for me as a fan of these books is the idea of werewolves existing right under the noses of unsuspecting humans. They have their own hotels, resorts and in the case of Werewolf in Vegas, they even had their own casino before it was lost in a card game to a human.

I’m normally used to the male character being the paranormal creature but this time it’s the female character who sprouts fangs and fur, making for some very interesting and funny exchanges between Luke and Giselle. Giselle comes from a long line of weres who don’t believe in mating with humans so her attraction to Luke is most inconvenient. Added to that, she’s there to find her runaway brother who is the future alpha of the Landry pack and who has apparently run off with Luke’s little sister.

I’m such a fan of the way Lewis takes a usually dark, heavy sub genre of romance and makes it light hearted without completely doing away with the paranormal element. I’d categorize her Wild About You series as a medium level paranormal romance, with emphasis on sensuality and humor. Perfect for a paranormal fan who isn’t too keen on too much blood and violence.

With Las Vegas as the backdrop for the story, there’s just so much that can and does go wrong in the best possible way. Luke and Giselle are looking for their errant siblings all while trying not to fall into bed together. Their chemistry is believable yet humorous. Luke, especially, doesn’t take himself seriously and that makes him all the more likable to me. He always tries to have an optimistic outlook on his situation with Giselle even though it sometimes gets on her nerves. Giselle on the other hand, is more pessimistic and rigid but that didn’t make me like her any less. She’s tough but sympathetic and loyal to boot. She and Luke made a great couple.

Werewolf in Las Vegas was everything I’ve come to expect from a Vicki Lewis Thompson novel and I can’t wait to read more from her!
