Romance Book Review: Fiddler on the Woof

Author: Blayne Edwards
Series Connection: Caine and Oh Yum! By Ellora's Cave
ISBN: 9781419916816
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance/Werewolf


This novella is a stand-alone book that has some of the same characters and similar story line to Blayne's Caine book. I was really excited when I realized this book was connected because I always hoped that the author would write more as part of that same series. I'm hoping she still considers writing stories about Caine's two brothers. That said this story is about Caine's cousin a twenty-four year old prodigy that comes to help teach Caine's cubs how to sing. While visiting his cousin, Joseph decides to do a little teaching at the local college and when he does he meets Aubrey.

Aubrey is forty years old and has been with quite a few different varieties of the human male species. At least that's what she thinks until she meets Joseph. Despite being forty, Aubrey has not problem spending a little one-on-one time with Joseph. He's smart, gorgeous and they have fun together. The only question is what will Aubrey think when she finds out, that no matter how many human men she's been with, none of them can compare to Joseph's hybrid species.

I have a soft spot for these older women, younger men stories. I liked Aubrey's brassy attitude. She wasn't really hung up that there was an age difference between her and Joseph and Joseph seemed more than interested. This book is a fast paced, lusty read. I like the story line and the connection to the first story. Individually this story is a keeper, except that I'd read the first one and was hoping it would keep along with the style of that book a little more. Unfortunately, there is only so much you can do with so few words in the story.

Book description:
For Aubrey Upton, pushing forty isn't a problem. She's pretty much done and seen it all. And though the quirky professor still feels nineteen deep down, she's well past the age of fairytale romances and puppy love. Until Professor Joseph Bolinger, the hottest puppy she's ever seen walks into her life.

Joseph, the twenty-four-year-old musical prodigy and wolf/human hybrid, finds most women his age think and act like he did when he was nine. Perky or not, twenty-year-old females are intellectually flat. Boring. Hardly mature enough to handle dating outside their species. 

But Aubrey— It's about much more than the intellectual "fit". Her scent, her touch, drive the big bad wolf inside him to want to take her down, permanently, preferably with him on top. 

About the Author:
Blayne Edwards was born, raised, and still resides in the foothills of the Appalachians in Southeast Tennessee with the timber wolf bitch she adopted and the human animal she married. She feels an overwhelming passion for writing, sex, animals, fear, and loud obnoxious music and believes she was put on this Earth to somehow become the embodiment of them all. Blayne believes—in everything.
