Haley Fern has been the alpha of her local werewolf pack for less than a year when their law enforcement liaison retires, and Leland Sommers, a man who knows nothing about werewolves or their world, is hired in his place. What could be an awkward situation turns complicated when the man shows up his first day on the job with an injured teenage boy he found on the road–a boy Haley knows has just been bitten.
Let me first say: fun! I really liked this one. Nice characters with a lot of chemistry, Leland and Haley are made for each other.
The whole werewolves thing was interesting to say the least, Haley was elected to be the alpha. And there is a definite distinction between werewolves who are born that way, and who are made that way., which also becomes an issue in the book.
Are we difficult about bisexuality, homosexuality, trans people? No, because it was handled in an easy, normal way.
I really liked Haley and Leland, normal people with normal rounded bodies with love handles.
One thing, I saw very early in the story who would be the villain, that wasn't difficult to see.

Disclaimer: I got this book in the Librarything Early Reviewers. ( )

A well written werewolf novel that celebrates sexual diversity. The book also celebrates being less than perfect—and finding that that too is okay. Leyland drives into his new town after having found an injured teenaged boy on the roadside. Haley knows this boy has been biten by a werewolf. The story is an engaging and entertaining monster mashup, with a bit of humor, adventure, and mystery mixed in. Those who like the Twilight series will enjoy this as well. ( )

I received a copy of this book through LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I’m someone who typically doesn’t read this genre of books. In reality, the last time I read anything paranormal romance was Twilight when I was 12. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by this. I thought the actual writing was well done and engaging. Although the plot was a bit predictable at some times, it was generally interesting. I wasn’t really invested in the romance but they were cute together and I thought the POV characters were pretty likable. I also thought the inclusion of LGBT characters was really well done. The characters didn’t feel tokenized and the fact that they were LGBT was “disclosed” nonchalantly instead of making it a big deal or making it their entire personality. It felt realistic. Overall a fun and quick read. ( )

Right, okay. Not my cup of tea. I do enjoy some paranormal stuff - as classic vampire stories... but I'm not into cheesy paranormal romance, as it turns out. So with this book it for me it just stops right there. I prefer it darker, more thought provoking, imagination engaging, more twists to the story (this was far too predictable).
Anyway, this is very lightweight read, easy, no fancy words, quick to flip through if you're bored.. or just curious as I was. ( )

Edge of the Woods by Jules Kelley is a werewolf paranormal romance. The author has taken the usual tropes and put a few twists on them. Pine Grove is a small town with a population that is about 50/50 werewolves (mostly born, a few bitten) and humans, and everyone in town knows, but it’s a secret to the rest of the world. The town uses this as a tourist draw, holding "fake" werewolf tours, especially around the full moon, and selling werewolf kitsch.

The day that new deputy sheriff Leland arrives in town, he finds a naked, injured young man on the road and brings him in to the doctor. There he also meets Haley Fern, the Park Administrator, who is also the alpha werewolf. Haley, is super attracted to Leland, but also trying not to let him in on the werewolves-are-real secret, needs to deal with the injured man (bitten and turned by an unknown werewolf), figure out who bit him, not look weak to her werewolf bosses, lead the pack out on full moons, etc. Leland is super-attracted to Haley, too, but also confused by the town and the whole tourist/werewolf thing.

There are the obligatory sex scenes, mostly in the later part of the book, and they’re not terribly written, but there was (in my opinion) rather too much of it, and at inappropriate times. Sure, lets head out into the woods where we KNOW something weird/dangerous is going on and take our clothes off and not pay attention to anything happening around us.

Gender roles/choices are presented along a fairly wide spectrum and very matter-of-factly, which is nice.

First in a series. Will read later installments if they come my way, but not a top pick.

Reviewed from an electronic copy received through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers Program in return for an honest review.
