Falling for the Billionaire Wolf and His Baby
by Sasha Summers
Series: Blood Moon Brotherhood, #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: April 24, 2017

When Jessa Talbot’s boss offered her a promotion, she agreed—no questions asked. Her family needed the money, but fighting the attraction she feels for her brooding employer is tough. Worse, she instantly bonds with his infant son she’s caring for. But this is a temporary solution and she can’t get attached to either of them.

Finnegan Dean is cursed. He’s a nicely dressed monster, the wolf inside always looking for a way out. But there are two things he and his wolf agree on. They must protect baby Oscar and Jessa—his mate. While the wolf hungers to seal their bond, Finn fights the instinct. After all, if he really cares for her, he’d never doom her to the life he lives.

Nothing eased his wolf like holding her. The wolf would be happy to stay that way––until he wanted her again.

“I can’t move,” she gasped.

“Then don’t,” he murmured, pressing a kiss against her forehead.

She relaxed then, her breathing slowly easing as his fingers traced the length of her spine. “When will we leave?” she asked.

“Soon,” he answered.

“I miss him,” she said, a completely different type of longing in her voice.

He hugged her close, rolling her beneath him. “Do you want to leave now?”

“I don’t think I can walk,” she answered, looking exhausted—but happy.

“Are you complaining?” he asked, nuzzling her nipple.

“Are you trying to kill me?” she asked.

But all he saw was her nipple, tight and hard and demanding his attention. “You want me.”

She looked at him. “Yes. But I need to see Oscar.”

“Your son?” he asked, watching the love in her smile.

She nodded.

“Then let’s go.” He pushed off the bed, groaning at the vision she made. Her body was flushed, bearing several
patches of darkened skin where he’d sucked too hard too long. And damn, but he’d do it again. Her hair was a mess, and she looked beautiful. “One more time?”

She shook her head, her eyes going wide. “Seriously?”

He looked down at the evidence of his arousal.


She sat up, her hand clasping him—

“Mr. Dean?” Brown called through the door. “You have a phone call.”

Jessa jumped back, burrowing under the covers. Finn laughed. “Coming,” he answered.

Jessa threw a pillow at him. “You take your phone call. I’ll take a shower—”

“What if I like you all sweaty and smelling like me?”

Her cheeks were red, but she looked him in the eye and said, “Then you’ll have to do it again, later.”

He tugged up his boxers. “Deal.”

With lots of action and a different spin about werewolves than other books, the Blood Moon Brotherhood looks to be a promising series.

Finn is constantly fighting his wolf, and based on how his transformation occurred, it’s no surprise that he considers his werewolf nature a curse. When a woman he had an affair with dies after giving birth to his child he finds himself totally unprepared for what that means – it’s bad enough that he has never even considered being a father, but not knowing how his wolf nature will manifest in his child has brought some serious ramifications to not only him, but his pack.

Enter Jessa – a blessing and a curse to Finn. His wolf instantly recognizes her as his mate, and you can feel the bonds develop between not just Finn and Jessa, but also between baby Oscar. Jessa was really great – she’s had to raise her younger siblings so she’s no stranger to all things baby, but what I really loved was her protective nature – and not just to baby Oscar, but to her siblings, to Finn, and to his extended pack family. She may have been hired to be a short term nanny, but she brings so much more to Finn’s life.

There was a lot of time where Finn was fighting and denying the attraction between himself and Jessa, but once Finn accepts that Jessa is his, he’s fully on board with what his wolf has wanted from the beginning. And since Jessa and Oscar need protection from an all-out assault from the “others”, it’s a good thing Finn has gotten on board with his wolf!

There was a bit of a dark feel to this book. It was a bit edgy and had some darker moments, and you could really feel the evil lurking around the plot. I loved the twists to the werewolf lore that occur in this book’s world and the mystery surrounding Finn and his pack and the “others” (and just what is it about that bone?!!!) I did feel a slight disconnect between Jessa and Finn at times, it seemed that the emotional connection between the two didn’t fully evolve until the end, so some of their interactions seemed just a bit off during the first part of the book – not a big deal, but I was happy to see them finally get to a place where their actions and words felt like they in synch with each other.

Although I did enjoy this book, I was a bit disappointed at the ending, which left me hanging a bit and is why I only rated this one 3 stars. Since this is book one of the series I didn’t necessarily need a HEA, but I felt like I was left just short of a HFN and maybe one more chapter or tying up one more loose end would have given me that. There is enough great stuff about the world that has been created and the characters that I will definitely be looking for others in the series.

Sasha is part gypsy. Her passions have always been storytelling, history, romance, and travel. Her first play was written for her Girl Scout troupe. She’s been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks when she’s doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.
