I am fixed for now, I just have to wait until 2021 to read the next one. GAAAAAAHHH!!!!! Book 4 in the series and not disappointed. Charlie stayed true to the characters, I fell in love with Cooper and Parker in book 1 and in book 4 I am still head over heels. It is usually rare for books in series to maintain the characterization and the writing. Some add drama and unnecessary shenanigans just to fill the pages. I am happy to report that it is not the case here. This series keeps getting better. The character growth is so well done. Cooper is still our sole narrator and lawd this guy is awkwardly hilarious. A very relatable guy, you can’t help but fall in love with him. With all his awkwardness he makes a good agent. I love his case solving skills. Park is the opposite of Cooper, calm and collected big bad wolf. I love him too. They complement each other and together they make the best couple ever. The conversations and the banter between the two had me LOLing hard. “You’re lucky I’m too tired to break up with you,” Cooper warned, but was unable to contain his chuckle, and a few people looked over at them curiously. He lowered his voice to match Park’s near whisper. “So I was right. People are being extra worried for me.” The mystery was interesting enough to keep me going. Though I questioned the investigation a bit, it didn’t stop me from enjoying the ride. The balance between the mystery and the relationship is so well done, one does not overshadow the other one. Me likey very very much. The sex between Cooper and Park is always hot and hilarious to read. Their chemistry is off the charts. These two burn up the sheets with hotness and humour, best combo ever! “No, no. I’m fine. I’m just thinking.” “About running a marathon? Your heart is beating out of your chest,” Park said. “Shhh,” Cooper said. “Hold me tighter,” The humor in this series is right up my alley, Cooper has some of the best mumbled one liners. I kept picturing his face when he says things that had me busting out loud. Adhara has an amazing sense of humor. This series is highly recommended. Not your usual Werewolf shifter stories, but one of the best. Thanks you Ele, Moony and Teal for the awesome buddy read. 🤗🤗

The story picks up where we left off in the last installment. However, this time Cooper and Park are playing house and are looking for a place to live. But as they're cosplaying husband and husband, they receive a call asking them to go to an estate not too far from where they were real estate window shopping. Due to Park's history as the Shepherd, which he is desperate to atone for, Park and Cooper are roped into going undercover to a couples' retreat to investigate the disappearance of a man from Park's past. The story starts out with a steady drip drip drip of things that seem innocuous. From Cooper's sudden infatuation with marriage to his displeasure with the idea of being an alpha. This book is what I'd like to call a slow burn mystery. The action takes a bit of time to get to the good bits but the wait is worth it. I do wish for paranormal mysteries to become more mainstream and once more I do wish for more fiction with gay protags so that I can experience a bit of tension and no guarantee of a HEA. MMs kinda take the wind out of my suspense sails. (Please recommend such to me if you do come across them.) But I digress. This book was like getting a slice of chocolate cake after craving wheat for years. And what's more, it leaves us pining for a sequel that answers questions from a previous book. And boy oh boy I can't fucking wait. Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

Luckily I don't have to choose! Charlie Adhara has built these characters from the ground up, made them not just multi-dimensional but shown their growth as characters, specifically Cooper. He and Park make each other a better version of themselves which is something that appeals to me as a romance reader. While they have always had an almost elemental chemistry with one another, the longer they are together, the closer they become, the more they trust each other deepens and enriches that chemistry oftentimes in creative and delightfully depraved ways. Evidenced here in the power dynamic between them which is wholly unique and captivating, something I've never experienced before. Though not to be undersold is their banter. The connection they share has fostered the comical and droll aspects of their personalities and allowed that playfulness to shine. Lastly, this case not only kept me guessing til the end but the whole alpha thing I found both surprising and fascinating. I'm so grateful I didn't give up on Cooper and Park because they have turned into one of my favorite couples, so I was thrilled to learn there will be another installment in 2021! Get your popcorn ready, people! Prepare to be entertained, maybe be a bit puzzled from time to time and for the swooning. Highly recommended especially to fans of the series and if you haven't yet started it, what are you waiting for? An ARC was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

What this 4th installment does so well, in and amongst a standard missing person’s case, is to really allow the reader to finally see how Cooper and Park are doing since all the werewolfy secrets came out previously in Thrown to the Wolves. Their love is strong, but they’re still navigating the little things, still learning about each other, and testing the waters of their unusual, unconventional relationship that is all things dominant, submissive, protective, and supporting. If you were jonesing for more exploration between these two, then come on over! Cooper’s snarky voice really shines here, and it’s a testament to how far they’ve come that Park gives it back just as good. In the past, Cooper often frustrated me with his anxious valid insecurities and though he’s now confident in loving and being loved, his issues are better understood here, for instead of running away from them, he pushes past the awkward wanting to do right by Park no matter how uncomfortable it might make him. Be reassured this sentiment goes both ways, as it’s so evident that these men want the other to be happy, to meet each other's needs, and to have absolutely no misunderstandings or barriers to anything. I relished every single moment they shared, struggled with, and worked out together to get things done! Park continues to be a stellar book hubby here; the man can do no wrong in my eyes. He struggles with his past, wanting to make amends and atone, and despite his formidable innate alpha persona, he easily acquiesces to all things Cooper, still retaining his alluring indomitable strength and power. As mentioned above, there’s a push pull here to their dynamic, each giving in yummy sexy explicit ways, and keeping me oh so rapt as I watched these two dance their lovely dance (*stuffing face with popcorn without blinking*). Unf! So suffice it to say, and I apologize for not being succinct as was my original intention to do so, I’ve only grown to love these two more and more. I'm just putting it out there, should Park ever get tired of Cooper, I’m readily available! All kidding aside, this has now elevated to a top favorite series as this isn’t your typical shifter romance. It’s gritty and dramatic, it alternates between spot on levity with equal amounts of suspense, all with a continued fascinating exploration into werewolf culture but never skimping on what's most important, and that’s the story of these two fascinating protagonists. Adhara has created something special here, making this a rare unputdownable page turner that sadly, always goes too fast. Again, one can only hope that she continues to give us more of this lovely duo that has yet to disappoint!

    4.5 Stars I’ve probably said it before, but just to reiterate: this is the best human/werewolf romance series I’ve read. EVER. This is not your ordinary werewolf-y romance. It’s complex and layered and masterfully written, with intricate murder-mystery plots unfolding in each book and a pitch perfect relationship progression across the board, between MCs Cooper and Park, that always leaves me feeling awed, entertained and positively gooey by the end. In Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, Cooper and Park ta 4.5 Stars I’ve probably said it before, but just to reiterate: this is the best human/werewolf romance series I’ve read. EVER. This is not your ordinary werewolf-y romance. It’s complex and layered and masterfully written, with intricate murder-mystery plots unfolding in each book and a pitch perfect relationship progression across the board, between MCs Cooper and Park, that always leaves me feeling awed, entertained and positively gooey by the end. In Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, Cooper and Park take a break from house hunting and instead head to a werewolf couples retreat in the mountains, undercover, to solve a missing persons case that swiftly turns into a complicated web of lies and, unsurprisingly, murder! I won’t touch too heavily on the mystery portion of the story, but to say there were many players and possible motivates—a classic whodunnit—and I never guessed the culprit until all was revealed, which in itself deserves praise. I could argue that there were perhaps too many characters to keep straight, but this is often the case in such stories that I continually struggle with where others may not. The strength of the story, as always, is in how Cooper and Park are so perfectly portrayed as characters who feel so damn real and nuanced, with genuine fears and insecurities, as well as hopes and dreams, that all heavily now revolve around how (and why) they love each other. They are such a great match, complimenting each other in a way that feels natural and necessary. I could simply read about these two forever and never tire of their dynamic, they’re that wonderfully engaging to me. It’s clear I’m a fangirl of Cooper and Park, and I enjoyed this instalment to their story very much. I look forward to not only continuing the series, but also revisiting the earlier stories in my future, because re-reading a series this good is a no-brainer for me.

So I may have did that embarrassing squeal and clap thing one does when they find something like this that excites them. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book and start it.

I had hoped for more books so I was pleasantly surprised to find this 4th installment to the Big Bad Wolf series. I had no idea! So I may have did that embarrassing squeal and clap thing one does when they find something like this that excites them. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book and start it. I love being in Cooper's head and getting to see more and more of his walls fall down for his Mate/Partner Oliver. This book did not disappoint one bit. I loved every second of it. The book starts off with Cooper and Oliver looking at houses to buy. Oliver looks to have expensive taste and it has Cooper feeling on edge and a bit reluctant to leave the comfort of his apartment. We know by now that Cooper doesn't do well with change. So for him to possibly go from his small apartment to a possible mini-mansion really isn't helping. It's quite funny though because Oliver keeps a little yellow notebook that keeps track of Coopers likes and dislikes on every house they see right down to his facial expressions. I found that cute/hilarious. But Cooper is feeling a bit overwhelmed with the house hunting so he is quite relieved when a call from their ex-boss interrupts another house showing. She needs their help... Oliver and Cooper are loaned out to the BSI to go undercover at a couples counseling retreat for werewolves. There's a former Alpha missing who was working at the retreat as the groundsman, one Oliver knows from his past as the Sheppard. The retreat is secluded in the mountains with a breathtaking scenery. There are interesting couples and a staff that is sparse and a bit on the shady side. They also seem to be changed out quite often. Are the past staff missing as well or did they leave on their own? When Oliver and Cooper arrive they find their is more than one person who is suspiciously missing and then soon more people start dropping dead. In the middle of all this is these couple activities that Cooper and Oliver are participating in that are suppose to be a part of their act, but Cooper can't help but take them serious. He's always felt like he doesn't know enough about their dynamic in their relationship. Especially the Alpha part. He doesn't want Park to feel like he is obligated to him. So having all the couple exercises and the AQ test really brings Cooper's fears to the surface. The murder mystery was as much at the forefront as the relationship was. I really love when a story is able to balance these both out equally. I couldn't get enough of Cooper and Oliver. Their relationship has grown so much. They share a lot more with each other instead of ignoring the issue or letting it burrow inside of them. I love Cooper's prickly side to Oliver's softer side. They really do have great chemistry and fit so well together. I especially love their banter. They crack me up. The murder mystery was interesting. It got even more interesting when we find out what was really going on. I had my own thoughts and they were pretty close to what was happening. It was just all together a really great read and a great addition to this series. I'm thrilled with the ending because that means another book is for sure in the future for this series. I just wish the wait wasn't so long. Happy reading dolls! xx **I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**

    Don't you hate when you read the latest book that is out in a series and you have that realization that you have to wait like a year until you get to be with your little book friends again? I mean, it's soooo unfair!! Life is so hard!!! Why, God, why???? Don't do it, girl! Don't cut bangs! Nothing is that bad! Just put down the scissors and back away slowly. Okay, so.

Our favorite werewolf/human couple (yeah, I said it. Come at me bro) is going undercover at a retreat for couples in trouble. Great, a couple of trust falls, some "I just feel like.."'s, hugs, and maybe a few murders should really put the shine back in that relationship. Cuz, truly, don't you always feel better about your relationship after watching the train wreck that is other people's relationships? Oh, me and the hubs really bond over laughing at other couples. It's our shared hobby. Couple-time. See, now that's a happy, healthy relationship! But, the murders really put the spice back into things. When you are stuck at a secluded camp that has all the makings of a Friday the 13th movie and people are dying around you, every night could be your last night on earth. It's pretty exciting! Worse cock-blocker since children were invented. I really liked this installment in the series. Cooper and Park are finally, finally, starting to open up and talk to each other about what they are thinking. It has been frustrating to watch them try and skirt around things and hide important issues in the past. So, murders or not, this retreat was good for them. I'm also looking forward to them being that awesome couple that solves crime together going forward. And, I think they should get a butler when they get a new house. That's what this series is missing.

    4.5 stars Just as wonderful as the rest of the series. When it comes to Cooper and Park's relationship, I think this book might be my favourite. I re-read, or rather listened to, all the previous books before reading this one and I love how with each book we get to know them better. I loved watching them grow both as characters and as a couple. I think the setting for this one was perfect as it gave them the opportunity to learn more about themselves, be more open and talk about their feelings.

There were a few things that weren't too believable, but I still enjoyed it and it definitely kept me guessing. The side characters were really great, too. The ending was a bit abrupt, but only because I wanted more. Can't wait for the next book in the series!

For reference, I started and finished this on Christmas Eve, so. That's why this opening line is funny to me right now.. knowing this won't go live until March. But back on track! I am new to this series, having binged the first three back in the summer, but seeing this installment up for request was exciting because a) I wasn't sure we'd get more and b) the third book was my favourite of the series so I had hoped that momentum, and track record, would continue on the up and up. And this was pretty damn great. "Frankly, Dayton, I don't know anyone less concerned with pissing off people and wolves alike." "Careful, all this flattery is going straight to my head." It's hard to know what to talk about for a series that's a few books in but suffice it to say, if you're a fan, you'll still be, and if you're keen to start a m/m werewolf shifter series and this is the first you're hearing about it? Surprise! Go settle in for a nice binge. This one is much fun. What the hell about him had Park seen and thought, Oh yes, anxiety-ridden loner with a temper sharper than a serpent's tongue and a deep-seated fear of change whose longest successful relationship is with an equally judgmental cat? Swoon. On the emotional/relationship front, this one started to worry me a bit because I thought we had come very far in book three, and some of the issues Cooper was working through felt a little bit two steps back. But. Oh but. There were some great moments to push us even further than we'd gone in book three, and with some very good rationale and reasoning, and a heck of a lot of teasing. In the best way. "It's not you, it's me." "Very helpful. How on earth will an evolved couple like us convincingly pretend to need counseling?" Plus? EeeeEeEeEeEe. <– this was my brain during a certain hug. That's all I'm saying. "What do you think? Would Kyle and Andrew venture out and ask directions?" "I don't know, are Kyle and Andrew auditioning for victims one and two in a horror movie?" "Kyle would. Andrew needs to keep the car running and getaway ready. For reasons." "I hate Andrew." "That's why we're here." The excuse for this particular adventure, going undercover at a couple's counseling retreat for werewolves, was genius. Who doesn't love the ‘pretend relationship’ trope except it's even juicier when they are in a relationship and get forced to work through some things. Delicious. Also, I liked how Adhara introduced another element for the shifters in such a natural way. It seems to happen in each book, the total opposite of an info dump, and always relevant for the moment, not for a ‘maybe in the future you need to know this’, and it's so perfect. The worldbuilding is so fabulous and so natural, so subtle. "Nice secret passage. Narnia's keeping well, I assume." So, yes, this wasn't Christmassy at all, I'm reading it three months early, but who even cares. I had so much fun, this was sexy as hell, and also hilarious. Sometimes I wonder which I like better, the humour or the swoons (it's both, but seriously, so funny). I can't wait for more because with the ending of this one, this series is definitely not over. ** I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher (thank you!) in exchange for an honest review. ** --- This review can also be found at A Take From Two Cities.

    One of the things that I keep loving about this series is its different take on the shifter genre. It was a little frustrating in the first books because of the lack of actual shifting and most of what usually comes in shifter stories, but it’s also refreshing and more nuanced, especially the more the series progresses. As a result, the dynamic between Cooper and Oliver doesn’t follow the “usual” human-wolf pattern and the worldbuilding keeps me on my toes, I never know what to expect next, but One of the things that I keep loving about this series is its different take on the shifter genre.

I liked the mystery of this book, I had some vague ideas that ended up having something in common with the resolution, but it wasn’t anything specific enough that I wasn’t surprised when everything was explained and the culprit revealed. The strongest point of the book (and the series, imo) is in the MCs and their relationship. Cooper and Oliver have the perfect balance of sweetness and humor, doubts and confidence. There were a lot of swoon-worthy moments in this book and nothing saccharine about them. On the contrary, it was the perfect brand of sweetness for me, I often found myself melting one moment and laughing the next one, sometimes even at the same time. Once again, this series confirmed itself as a very pleasant reading experience, made even better by sharing it with my buddy readers Moony, Shile and Teal. I hope we’ll get to repeat it soon with the fifth book. :)

I was so excited for this, love the characters, dynamic and world; among my favourites. Somehow it's taken me the longest time to read it though. Can't quite decide why that is. Coops and Park are the same emotionally messy tough guys. Great as a couple, perfect for each other, but useless at communicating. Still love them. The mystery is a stronger focus in this book than the previous. For me it had the air of Cluedo, and once that thought had struck I'm afraid I couldn't dispel it. At first it was the AQ debate seemed to dominate the story, I didn't feel any urgency about solving the larger mystery and characters seemed to appear and pose, Ms Scarlet, Col, Mustard... AQ is a large part of plot, Coops insecurities and group perceptions. Loved the ending, the showdown from beginning to end, all it said and meant; Coops delivering his best lines and Park...being Park about it. And Cole made me laugh. I left the book happy. Got to rate it high, I love the characters, the writing is good, fascinating wolf world and mystery - all great. For some reason there was never an urgency to pick the book up once put down though, can't place why that is, perhaps just timing. Will definiately read it again, likely go through them in order soon, it's a favourite series. Look forward to more. --- --- Now there's a cover and a blurb and oooooooh it sounds like a mess lol poor Coop. Should be interesting. -- -- March? But, but that's five months away!

    I've been waiting for this book for months, ever since Charlie Adhara said she had more Coop and Park to come. As you can tell by my update and my rating, it absolutely did not disappoint. Her take on shifters is quite different from the typical ones, with a covert approach to their existence that necessitates secrecy and caution. She uses that element to her advantage in this investigation, which sees our heroes going undercover to a couple's relationship retreat to investigate a missing wolf.

There'll be no spoilers in my review, I will say, the mystery had me second guessing my way through the book and, while I got one plot thread right, the main 'big bad' dodgy dealing didn't even enter my radar until it was almost the end! As for Cooper and Oliver. OMG they are on fire with their strange mini-pack dynamics but also with how much Coop is opening up. Their relationship is tested to the max in this book, but I love how there is never any doubts in their love for each other. I was 'awwwing' all the way through! They're also just as insanely hot together, burning up the sheets as well as the public showers and an office and never not directly related to the narrative. Sex isn't thrown in randomly, it always drives off something which is happening in the main investigation which prompts a declaration of love or some horniness 😁 Book five is coming next year! #ARC kindly received from the publisher Carina Press via NetGalley in return for an honest and unbiased review.

Although I had a hard time keeping up with who all the different characters were, I was enthralled with the dynamic between Cooper and Park as well as learning more about the unique werewolf world presented in this series.

    After the rant I had with Thrown to the Wolves, I am happy to report that I am satisfied with this latest installment of Charlie Adhara's Big Bad Wolf series. The one thing that irritated the hell out of me in the previous book -- namely, the "failure to communicate" trope between two men -- is nicely addressed here. Sure, MAYBE, it has something to do with Cooper and Park going undercover in a couple's counseling retreat, where they are bound to get therapy session and talk about feelings 😬.

Sure, MAYBE, it has something to do with Cooper and Park going undercover in a couple's counseling retreat, where they are bound to get therapy session and talk about feelings 😬. However, at the same time, both also talk outside of the session, even if it's still staccato-like. Because you know, men, so difficult to express what they feel, huh? But yes, they talk, and NOT only that ... Cooper learns things about himself, and I learn a lot about the two. As for the investigation, it is also BETTER than the previous one where things are kept in secret behind the "family pack" stance. Cooper and Park work together nicely to uncover what happens with the missing wolf. There are some dead bodies appear, sinister people, wolf trying to challenge the Shepherd, and VERY HOT sex scenes thrown in between. GOOD times. Nicely done, Ms. Adhara 👍🏼. I will be waiting patiently for book #5 now... The ARC is provided by the publisher via Netgalley for an exchange of fair and honest review. No high rating is required for any ARC received.

It just wasn't on my radar. And what a mistake that would have been as it's quickly become one of my favorites. Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is the fourth book of this fantastic series . . . a unique and intriguing blend of paranormal, male/male romance, and mystery suspense. I love that the author devotes special attention to each element - mixing the ingredients to produce the perfect cocktail for readers - one that delivers a potent reading buzz both relationship and case wise. While you can read any of these books as a standalone, the overall character and relationship development emerges slowly as an over-all story and series arc. I advise reading the series in order of release. Picking up soon after the close of the previous book, Wolf In Sheep's Clothing finds Cooper and Oliver house hunting, and it quickly becomes obvious that these two opposites have different ideas about what constitutes the "perfect house". The banter between these guys is perfection and so much fun - full of snark, wit and snazz. An unexpected phone call from Cooper's former BSI superior raises concerns about a wolf-shifter who disappeared while working as a ground's keeper at a wolf-oriented couple's retreat, and it brings a halt to their house hunting plans much to Cooper's relief. Oliver and Cooper are sent undercover posing as a couple seeking counseling to search for information about the missing wolf. A wide variety of characters are introduced that I found a bit hard to keep straight; however, they provide a unique pool of possible villains that kept me guessing and also serve to introduce more of the previously unknown wolf-lore which I loved. As the story unfolds, the twisted plot lines intertwine and begin to reveal connections, truths, and hidden pasts and dangers resulting in a story that I couldn't put down. A storm is brewing both literally and figuratively . . . who will survive? Adhara's writing flows in a hypnotic manner that quickly drew me in, holding me entranced. The pace elevates steadily in correlation with the growing suspense throughout. The author's unique blend of paranormal, mystery and suspense is enhanced by multi-dimensional characters whose development is ongoing and highly addictive. Cooper and Oliver wear their disguises well, especially when survival hinges on them trusting one another completely with everything. As much as I love the suspense in this story, it's the character relationship development that held me bewitched through all four books. Oh! Did I forget to mention the insane, overwhelming, all-consuming chemistry between this big bad wolf and hardcore human? Shame on me! I'll just say don't stand too close because the heat is scorching hot! Adhara brilliantly renders another story of two strong yet vulnerable men exploring a male/male relationship they're absolutely powerless to control in the middle of a chaotic case. Oh the emotional turmoil! I enjoyed every single minute of it and can't wait for book 5 rumored to be coming in 2021! If you're a fan of paranormal romance, read this book. If you're a fan of male/male romance, read this book! If you're a fan of mystery suspense, read this book! I highly advise everyone to grab the Big Bad Wolf series and carve out some alone reading time because you're entering binge-reading territory, my friends. Enjoy! *A special thank you to HARLEQUIN-Carina Press for an arc of this book! **Reviewed at: Cross My Heart Reviews

    I think Charlie Adhara has outdone herself with this one. I wasn't sure what to expect from a 4th book, didn't even realize it was necessary until I was finished. It's unbelievable how much Cooper has grown. Is this really the same guy who could never talk about anything emotion-related in book 1? Or who hated wolf-shifters? The exploration of his insecurities, of the questions that niggle him non-stop (like if he ever can be enough for a guy like Oliver) are brilliantly explored and discussed.

(and that little red herring along the way was fabulous!) I loved all of it. Excellent book and wonderful series! Can't wait to see what the author is cooking up for the next one!

    3.5 stars! Awww, Coop and Ollie are so great together! It was nice to reunite with them and revel in the narrative voice of Cooper once again, and the ensuing banter. These guys are among my favourite romantic couples, and that I don't say lightly. It was such a pleasure to re-read the three first books in the series before starting this one.

Perhaps I only felt so because I'm not really a suspense or mystery reader, or because the guys are now an established couple and the romantic development have slowed down. The result for me was that the main plot didn't quite manage to hold my attention—a first for this series, and occasionally I skimmed parts to get to the next Cooper and Oliver development. Even if I'd rate this instalment a tad lower than the previous books, I know I won't be able to stay away from reading the next upcoming book in the series as soon as it's released. Because Cooper! Because Oliver!

I'll be honest, I wasn't exactly thrilled with the premise; Cooper and Park would be solving a mystery at a resort/retreat for wolves while resolving their own relationship issues. I didn't want to go back to the unsure and insecure Cooper and the loving but silent Park. They had resolved all those trust and insecurity issues and were now stronger together, so I was not sure what more relationship issues could they face together. But oh, how wrong I was! 😳 This book has so much more...not just about their relationship but about their hearts and minds and all the complexities in between. 💘 The main story begins when Cooper and Park are handed an unofficial case by the BSI to find the whereabouts of a missing werewolf who's last place of employment was this retreat/resort in the midst of the woods in South Carolina. So under assumed names, Cooper and Park come to the resort to work on their relationship ; while trying to get more information from the employees and guests; and figure out the inner workings of the place. The plot thickens when they find out that a human from the neighboring area has gone missing too and there are way too people going in and out of the resort who might have a hidden agenda. Danger follows them everywhere and they don't know who they can trust. Even Cooper, who attracts danger like a magnet is left uneasy after an accident. Is there someone among the guests or employees who knows who they are and is trying to harm him? With more people dying (suspiciously) over the weekend, Cooper knows that they are in a race against time to solve the mystery before the massive storm comes and cuts the resort's power, closes roads and chaos ensues. The story during the last few chapters is a nail biter😱, but that doesn't mean that the steam and sizzle between Cooper and Park is on the back-burner. The chemistry between them is even more explosive 🔥🔥this time around. They know each other's wants and needs so well by now that they can communicate in their own language. It's really wonderful to see how much they have grown since they first met and how much they love and support each other. The conversations between them made me laugh, cry and go awww 💕 so many times. But this feeling he had for Park—this irrevocable, gravity-altering, forever feeling... It was different. This was quite simply it for him. The end of the line. The relationship that changed the laws of physics. The person he’d always, no matter what, consider a part of him. Consider his family. Cooper and Park are now one of my favorite couples.. ❤️ Highly recommended!! 👍👍

    I've given this an A at AAR. To say I was excited when I learned that Charlie Adhara was going to be continuing her  Big Bad Wolf  series is something of an understatement.  I’ve never really been into books about shifters, but after reading AAR's review of book one, The Wolf at the Door, I decided to try it and was immediately hooked on the adventures of BSI (Bureau of Special Investigations) agent Cooper Dayton and his werewolf work-partner (and later, romantic partner), Oliver Park.  Each bo I've given this an A at AAR. To say I was excited when I learned that Charlie Adhara was going to be continuing her  Big Bad Wolf  series is something of an understatement.  I’ve never really been into books about shifters, but after reading AAR's review of book one, The Wolf at the Door, I decided to try it and was immediately hooked on the adventures of BSI (Bureau of Special Investigations) agent Cooper Dayton and his werewolf work-partner (and later, romantic partner), Oliver Park.  Each book in the series contains a standalone mystery, but the central relationship develops throughout, so it really is advisable to read all the books and read them in order so as to gain a proper understanding of how Cooper and Park have arrived at the point at which we meet them again at the beginning of Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing. [Note: There are spoilers for the previous books in the series in this review.] At the end of Thrown to the Wolves, Cooper, frustrated by the utter uselessness of the BSI when it came to dealing with wolves as victims and seeing the bureau’s ignorance and lack of respect for wolves and their history, quit the organisation and joined a new department set up by the Trust (the group that oversees all wolves), dedicated to investigating crime – whether by humans or their own kind – against wolves.  He and Park have continued their working partnership there, and their personal relationship continues to thrive; they’re in love, they’ve been living together for months, and now they’re looking to buy a home together – but while Park has eagerly jumped in to the business of house-hunting, Cooper is holding back, the prospect of leaving the apartment he’s lived in for years putting him on edge. He knows his old, one bedroom place is too small for them, and that although he’s welcomed Park into his space, it’s still his space and nothing in it is Park’s.  Wanting to do something nice for Park, Cooper agrees to look for somewhere together, but he can’t work up the same enthusiasm for the search – and definitely not for the expensive ‘mini mansions’ Park favours. Cooper is thinking he really needs to have an honest conversation with Park about the situation but is saved from doing it right away by a phone call from his former boss Elena Santiago – whom he hasn’t spoken to since leaving the BSI – who asks for their help in finding a missing wolf. A wolf who, as it turns out, Park had dealings with in his time as the Shepherd, when he fought and banished him for mistreating his pack members and attacking other packs. After this, Thomas Kreuger found work as a groundskeeper at a remote a mountain retreat in North Carolina, living under the radar until a couple of weeks earlier, when he reached out to a pack member and told her that something at the retreat was badly wrong, but didn’t elaborate.  A week after that, he suddenly turned in his notice and just disappeared.  He hasn’t been officially reported missing, but his former mate is concerned about him. Santiago wants Cooper and Park to look into Kreuger’s disappearance unofficially – and as Maudit Falls is a relationship retreat for wolves, they already have the perfect cover story.  Fresh mountain air, brisk swims in the lake, couples counselling… it’ll be a nice little vacation for them.  Cooper isn’t particularly impressed. The fake relationship trope isn’t an unusual one in romantic suspense, but Charlie Adhara takes things one step further here by having a fake-not-fake relationship (!) as Cooper and Park go undercover to investigate Kreuger’s disappearance – and definitely come up against more than they’d bargained for. From the moment they arrive at the retreat and walk in on an argument over the disappearance of a man employed at the local lumber mill, it’s clear all is not well at Maudit Falls – an impression that is reinforced when another staff member goes missing and a ripped and bloodied shirt is discovered in one of the generator sheds. And the deaths don’t stop there… Charlie Adhara once again does a fantastic job of combining an intriguing and high-stakes suspense plot with plenty of relationship and character development, steamy love scenes, tenderness and humour. So much of the romantic suspense I’ve read or listened to lately hasn’t managed to achieve the right balance between those two elements, but Ms. Adhara does it beautifully, creating a clever plot in which things are not at all what they seem while continuing to move the romance forward. The romantic and sexual chemistry between Cooper and Park is as strong as it ever was, but there’s a new sense of their being settled that wasn’t quite there before. Yet Cooper wouldn’t be Cooper if he was all cool and collected about everything, and although he’s completely secure in Park’s love for him (and his for Park), he can’t help remembering some of the things said by Park’s family, about wolves ultimately needing to be with their own kind and wondering whether, in the end, he can ever be enough. In addition to this, he comes to a realisation that makes him see some things about himself in a new light – and it’s a measure of how far he’s come as a character that he doesn’t try to hide it or hide from it. The ‘old’ Cooper, would just have locked it all away in that corner of his mind labelled Things Cooper and Park Don’t Talk About, but this new, improved version discusses it – no matter how hard it may be for him – accepts Park’s support and reassurance and makes plans to address it. This is a healthy, mature relationship between a couple whose love and affection for one another shines through, even when they mis-step, and it’s wonderful to read. As in the other books, the story is told entirely through Cooper’s PoV, but the author does such a great job of presenting Park through Cooper’s eyes that I didn’t miss a second PoV. His enthusiasm for moving in would almost have been absurd if it wasn’t so…sweet. Flattering. For weeks Park practically vibrated around the apartment in what Cooper publicly referred to as his “settling in” period but privately thought of as some sort of claiming or scent-marking ritual. He sat in every chair at least three times a day. He slept on the couch, the bed, the floor, the tub. He somehow persuaded Cooper into fucking on every available surface. It was Goldilocks gone wild. If there was a single nook or cranny of the apartment Park hadn’t stuck his nose in, it was only because he physically couldn’t fit. And Park has changed and grown as Cooper has; he still cuts a slightly forbidding figure, he’s still outwardly impassive and reserved, but he shows his softer, more romantic side more often – and his naughty side, too ;) Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing is a terrific read and a truly wonderful addition to the Big Bad Wolf series. I’m so very grateful that Ms. Adhara has decided to tell more stories about these amazing characters, and although we’re not getting book five until next year (this ends on a cliffhanger), if it’s as good as this one, then it’ll be worth the wait.

    I absolutely loved this installment. I love this series so much, and I love Cooper and Park so much. We open this installment with Cooper and Park house hunting, only Cooper is having some reservations...not about about Park and not about living together - Park already semi-moved into Cooper's apartment and Cooper loves it - but about change, and what he hasn't told Park...he's scared of letting Park down.

Soon after that they're recruited by their old BSI boss to unofficially go undercover at a couples retreat for werewolves, where a werewolf has gone missing, and they have to get to the bottom of it. And once they get there, it isn't long before bodies start dropping and something more sinister than they thought is truly afoot. Meanwhile Cooper and Park are working through things, but the whole time they were strong, even with the things they needed to talk about. They've come so far from the first book, Cooper especially. I wish we could get Park's POV, but it is clear that Park is as in love with Cooper as Cooper is with him. Seeing the usually prickly, sarcastic Cooper melt and have heart eyes all the time for Park is the best. The mystery was well done, and I had no idea who could be behind everything until it was revealed, probably because the case itself was so confusing for so long. Like...what was the motive? Didn't know for the longest time. But the author still kept it interesting and gripping, and Cooper and Park's relationship was the biggest draw, which I felt we got more of them than usual in this and I loved it. The ending was wonderful too and so very them, I was giddy reading it. Can't wait for the next book....wonder what we'll get by the end of that one...hopefully what I think we'll get. Not without some stumbling along the way and some murders to solve before it happens, though ;) Absolutely adored this latest installment in this amazing series. Two big thumbs up from me, HIGHLy recommended!

The series was originally set to be a trilogy, so I was thrilled to find out that Adhara was releasing more books, as I really love this paranormal romantic suspense. For me, this book brought out a new dimension to Cooper and Park’s relationship that I just loved. While it is clear that the men have been committed to one another for a while, here things take on a new intensity as Cooper really comes to recognize that Park is it for him. The wolf/human partnership isn’t always easy, and we see that reflected here as well. Cooper is still figuring out just how to fit into Park’s world, and he worries that if Park is all in, Cooper may let him down or make him feel trapped. But this story shows just how right these guys are for one another and how strong a bond they have. For me, this story was the most romantic of the series and I just loved watching their relationship continue to grow and strengthen. Read Jay’s review in its entirety here.

I am left with the same reaction I had when I finished book 3: “we have to wait how long for the next one!??”

    It's very hard to dislike any book with Cooper and Oliver in it. They just work so well together, even with Cooper's awkward fumbling, or especially because of that. It shows that even if you don't know what the hell you're doing in a relationship, you can make it work. The setting, while not my favorite, worked in Cooper's favor in many ways. I was afraid that we would delve into the life of the resort's guests too deeply which usually bores me. But I found it tolerable.

I hope there will be more on that topic. (view spoiler)[ It would have been good to see some of the question in the AQ-test. I'm curious. (hide spoiler)] Several times I felt baited (which could be a good or bad thing, depends on how you look at it. :D ). The story would head into a cliché direction (which made me go nooo don't that) and then thankfully change course. Clever, very clever writing. On to the next. 3.5 stars
