A Beginner’s Guide to Wooing Your Mate (2015) R. Cooper (Beings in Love)

A Beginners Guide to Wooing Your MateZeki Janowitz has returned to Wolf’s Paw while trying to figure out what to do with himself now he’s finally graduated college.

If attending high school in one of the longest surviving werewolf refuges in the country had taught him anything, it was wolves were twice as cliquish as humans could ever be— and they justified nearly everything they did with a shrug and the word “instinct.”

He thought it hadn’t missed Wolf’s Paw, but now he’s back he’s remembering there were things he liked about the town–including his high school crush.

This is not what I was expecting. I was expecting something lighter, fluffier. After all, it’s about shape shifters.

But this is Patricia Briggs kind of shapeshifters, with broken hearts and a lot of struggle as the two characters come to terms with a past that neither understood at the time–or now.

No one should have looked into Theo’s eyes and thought he was fine. Everything about Theo was beautiful, but he was not fine.

Even more interesting, it didn’t end where I thought it was going to, taking the easy out, but instead recognizing that so much had gone between the two, a simple acknowledgment of what had happened was not going to be enough to make things better. Both needed time to work through their discoveries and their feelings and to understand what was between them and what it could become.

It was excellently done, and I very much enjoyed it.
