Carter Griffin, enforcing officer for the Seattle Wolf Pack, has a problem. He’s been offered the promotion of his dreams…if he can find a wife to prove he’s over his playboy ways. But Carter’s already walked the matrimonial road and bought the stinkin’ T-shirt. Besides, a werewolf only gets one fated mate. Been there, done that.
All werewolf dog trainer Faith Hamilton wants to do is earn enough green stuff to put her younger brother through college. Okay, okay, so she also totally wants Carter, her sexy next-door neighbor, to look at her as more than a friend. It’s too bad size 12 and plain isn’t his type. At all.
The two friends strike a deal to help one another out. They must face a variety of challenges from a psycho ex-girlfriend to a Yorkie with a shoe fetish…and that pesky problem of only having one-fated mate in a lifetime. Will a relationship ruin their friendship…or spark a love neither anticipated?

Let me first just say that this is the first book I’ve ever read my Kristin Miller and straight after finishing it I went out and bought another one of her paranormal romances! – Be it about dragons instead of werewolves – So I think that speaks for its self as to how impressed by her I was.
The book reads as a lovely sweet romance – girl (Faith) wants guy (Carter) who doesn’t see her as anything more than a friend, then he finally wakes up to himself but is too scared to do anything about it for fear of ruining the friendship – I was really enjoying reading it but got a shock when at about 67% through the book we get a steamy love scene between the pair. I wasn’t shocked that they hooked up as the story was building to that, but it’s obvious I don’t read many romances that aren’t considered YA, as you don’t come across such descriptive sex scenes in the material written for a younger audience, haha Well Darrrr, of cause not. Never the less It was a delicious and enjoyable addition to the already fun story that really propelled the desire to finish the book. At around the 85% mark Carter turned into a raving manic jerk-face and nearly ruined the whole book for me. I was saying to myself “Fuck him Faith you deserve better, leave that asshole for dust” but he redeemed himself via having an epiphany as to how much of an arse-wipe he had been.
And they lived happily ever after. I love happy endings. Books need to have happy ending because in reality things don’t play out the same way and all us girls that have been heartbroken need a happily ever after world to escape to.
