Paranormal Romance

Review: Wolf Gone Wild – Juliette Cross (Stay a Spell #1)

Rating: 5 out of 5.


What’s the worst thing that can happen to a werewolf? Unable to shift for three months, Mateo Cruz knows all too well. His wolf has taken up residence in his head, taunting him night and day with vividly violent and carnal thoughts. Convinced he’s cursed, he needs the help of a powerful witch before he literally goes insane.

​Evie Savoie has always obeyed the house rules of her coven — no werewolves. They’re known for being moody and volatile. So, when a distempered, dangerous werewolf strolls into the bar and almost strangles one of her late-night customers, she’s ready to bounce him through the door. But the desperation in his eyes when he begs her to help him softens her heart and convinces her to bend the rules.

​What Evie doesn’t know is that Mateo’s wolf has a mind of his own. And now that she’s in his sights, he wants only one thing. Her.


Why has it taken me so long to start this series? Seriously, why?

I recently received Walking in a Witchy Wonderland, a short anthology of novellas for this series, and absolutely devoured it. After reading it, I knew I needed to make this series a priority in my tbr and a few days later, I picked up Wolf Gone Wild with no regrets! It’s amazing.

If you’re a fan of Kresley Cole, I think you’ll enjoy this series! It feels familiar and almost like being a part of the family in that it’s based in New Orleans, centers around a cast of paranormal species (witches, vampires, werewolves, and grim reapers), and is full of fun adventures, romance and mysteries with a touch of lighthearted comedy. But that’s where the similarities end, so don’t worry, you will get a really captivating, fresh story to sink your teeth into.

Wolf Gone Wild focuses on one of the Savoie sisters and ultimate hex-breaker (Evie) and a werewolf (Mateo) burdened with a dark magic spell put upon him. Mateo and Evie team up to uncover who’s trying to hurt him and his wolf, and along the way discover friendship, love and acceptance.

I honestly can’t rave about this series enough and I’m currently trying to decide if my patience is strong enough to wait for a physical copy of book 2, or if I should just buy the ebook. Either way, I highly recommend this series to anyone wanting a fun paranormal romance that will have you feeling like part of the Savoie family!
