Liana Brooks comes to the blog with a fluffy, fun, holiday story that I’m at least a year late (apologies) in reviewing with
All I Want for Christmas is a Werewolf
Firstly, I need to apologize for the lateness in this review –but I will tell you that it was the perfect antidote for the steady stream of icky news that 2020 has brought. And I desperately needed something to just giggle and relax with, even the ‘anti-Christmas but get roped in anyway’ theme helps. And Del HATES Christmas. She’d be happy to have the season just pass her by in favor of Halloween, a part-time fuzzy boyfriend and plenty of sun, surf and sand.
Even as Del’s friends are desperate to push her forward into a relationship – but they just don’t understand her requirements and what she truly wants. When you mix in the ‘gung-ho’ Christmas co-worker to contrast with the grinch-like one, a hunky co-worker and Del’s own past issues, her slightly stabby and snarky personality and plenty of mystery from one who is helping her through it all – what emerges is pure fun.
Full of references to favorite books, films and some pop culture: the fast-paced banter, plenty of room for more answers in a follow-up and a story that feels utterly fresh and fun – this is a great read for a pick-me-up that allows you to forget and escape in the pages.

Del hates Christmas. As a child, she spent too many Decembers on the streets after her parents abandoned her. As an adult, the enforced family focus, the clients who see the holidays as an excuse to get gropey, and the mistletoe her well-meaning colleague Maureen hung over her work desk just seals the deal: December sucks.
If only it could stay Halloween for a couple of months instead. Del loves the excuse to slay monsters, the spooky atmosphere—and of course, the werewolves. Because everyone knows werewolves make the best lovers... Pity they’re not real.
When Maureen conjures up a list of eligible bachelors for the holidays and insists Del take her pick, Del does the only reasonable thing: she lies. And when nosy office Grinch Rafael Kane asks who the lucky fellow is, Del announces it to the whole office: she's getting a dog.
So now, the first item on Del’s holiday to-do list? Find a dog. Fast. Because if she doesn’t, nothing will protect her from Maureen’s list of Miami bachelor rejects.
A charming, sensual romance for everyone who believes in found families, happily ever after—and werewolves.
