I was pleasantly surprised after I picked out Stormy Glenn's Pretty Baby this past week. I've read several of Stormy's books and series, but I hadn't picked up this particular series before and now I feel I've missed out.
Pretty Baby has a really good plot with an excellent background story. Not that this isn't something that I haven't seen with Stormy's work before, but the storyline seems more drawn out and doesn't revolve around the sex between the two lead characters but more the events going on around their relationship. That turned out to be a good thing in this case. Not that I don't love a good erotic book, I just like it to be more balanced and Stormy Glenn does that in Pretty Baby.
In Pretty Baby, werewolf Tommy, meets his mate in a bar. Only to get him home and become interrupted by his family before he can fully claim his mate, Elliot. To make matters worse the two mates a further kept from mating when Elliot, who never knew he was a werewolf turns into one out of the blue and then doesn't change back into his human form for a little while.
Before Tommy and Elliot know it they are wrapped up in a drama that not only includes both of their families but secrets are revealed and the werewolves have to work to stop a madman from finding out how to create a genetic werewolf.
Elliot Spencer has spent his entire life trying to live up to his father's strict ideals and make him proud. When he meets a sexy at a bar, he decides for once in his life he's going to live by his rules, and that includes going home with Tommy Nash. He just doesn't know until it's too late that going home with Tommy Nash will mean changing the way he sees the world.
Tommy Nash is captivated by the chatty little man he meets at the bar where he works. Taking the man home for a night of wild sex is a no brainer, especially when he realizes that Elliot is his mate. What Tommy doesn't realize until it's too late is that Elliot is a wolf shifter like him, and Elliot doesn't know it. By the time Tommy is able to get Elliot calmed down, it's too late. He's attacked someone and Tommy's family doesn't want him to become involved with Elliot.
Together, they have to fight his family, Elliot's family, and a few people in between that believe they shouldn't be together. Tommy's biggest obstacle is proving to Elliot that they belong together and by the time he does, it may be too late. Someone is after Elliot and Tommy doesn't know if he can save his mate, even with his pack's help.
