Walk on the Striped Side (Big Bad Bite #2) by Jessie Lane

33430-wotsscoverDoes he have his claws in her for good? Or is she just yanking his tail?

Elena Demos’s life has been turned upside down. Her mother has passed away, leaving Elena and her two half-sisters to deal with their mother’s will and the crazy stipulations it contains. For the three sisters to inherit the substantial amount of money left behind, they have to go to work with two aunts they’ve never met, in the family business they’ve known nothing about, Amazons Inc. If that isn’t bad enough, she runs into the man who once broke her heart, and it’s only their first day on the job. 

Gage Ivanov is a stupid beast. He let the woman who should be his mate go because she couldn’t be told of his Other identity. Now, Elena’s back, but she refuses to give in to his demands for her to be his mate. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse, either, because Gage and his circle of friends are trying to subdue a rogue pack of wolf shifters in Germany who threaten to out the Others to the world of humans. Will he be able to juggle the oncoming conflict and win back his mate?

Claws, love bites and handcuffs – OH MY!

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1Readers knew that Gage’s book was coming up at the end of the first book in Jessie Lane’s Big Bad Bite series, Big Bad Bite. Elena showed up at the bar with her sisters and it was evident that things were going to get interesting.

Walk on the Striped Side starts in the past and works its way up to where Big Bad Bite left off. There’s history behind Elena and Gage and readers needed that glimpse into their past to understand where they ended up. Human or not, Elena was more than able to hold her own with Gage. I liked these two together, even though it took them a while to actually end up together.

As you can tell from the description, a lot happens in Walk on the Striped Side. There were also more than enough hints for what’s in store for the characters in future books. This is definitely one series that I will be keeping my eye on. The characters are smart and fun, there’s plenty of heat, growly alphas, female lead characters that can hold their own and enough mystery to keep things interesting. Next up is The Demon Who Loved Me and I can’t wait. 😉

  1. I really did not like the first book so very much, a woman who promised to be very kick ass just rolled over for her “mate” and was sorry she did not commit to him in two days so he would not go out of control … I really dislike heroines who are kept stupid for their own good, when it is so clearly not.
    How is that in this book? Is she told more than the bare essentials of this secret world?

    • Well… in the beginning she’s kept in the dark because she’s not actually a part of Gage’s world. It’s not the same kind of situation though. They have a history that makes their bond not seem quite as rushed. I liked bits and pieces of each one. I don’t think I can pick one of them over the other or say that one was better than the other. I will say that beyond the romance, I think the humor and snark is what I like best about this series so far.
