Fangs, Fur & Mistletoe (Mystic Isle, Book One) by Selena Blake

eBook ~ Paranormal Novella
Fangs, Fur & Mistletoe (Mystic Isle, Book One) by Selena Blake is the 4th paranormal read I've read this year so far. 

I read the ebook edition of Fangs, Fur & Mistletoe (Mystic Isle, Book One) by Selena Blake. It's a paranormal erotica/romance novella approximately 96 pages in length. I was able to download this novella to my Kindle for FREE! Below is my unbiased review of Fangs, Fur & Mistletoe (Mystic Isle, Book One) by Selena Blake.

I'm usually not that into paranormal novels or novellas, but for some reason this year I have gravitated towards reading them more than the norm for me. I thought Fangs, Fur & Mistletoe (Mystic Isle, Book One) by Selena Blake was an okay read. I think paranormal novels are okay in general... I can take them or leave. My main criteria is that the paranormal novels/novellas must be well written and engaging reads for me to enjoy reading them. 

I wasn't into the 'instant love' between Coco and Grayson in Fangs, Fur & Mistletoe (Mystic Isle, Book One) by Selena Blake. Sure they'd fought on the battlefield a 100 years on opposing sides and had an instant attraction then, but that's all that happened between them -- attraction! They don't see each other again until they accidentally run into one other 100 years later at Mystic Isle. Coco and Grayson still have a strong attraction for one another. They delve in to their mutual attraction with heated sex scenes, but how can they really know they are in love when they've only had mind blowing sex? And the sex scenes weren't all that hot either. 

The story and characters weren't that intriguing either for Fangs, Fur & Mistletoe (Mystic Isle, Book One) by Selena Blake. I am not interested in reading the rest of the Mystic Isle series by Selena Blake.

The following is an excerpt of Fangs, Fur & Mistletoe (Mystic Isle, Book One) by Selena Blake that I discovered on Amazon:
He was alone. She was alone. There was no war, no battle between their kinds. Nothing standing in their way.

Except her friendship with Izzy. And despite what her coven might think, sex with a werewolf was just sex. Hot, sweaty sex.

She wouldn’t make the same mistake as last time. No. She would not sleep tonight without knowing the power of his kiss. But not here. Not in such a public place where word could get back to Izzy that Coco was kissing the enemy.

She glanced at him from beneath her lashes. Wolf.

He inclined his head, one single graceful nod. Vamp.

Coco wasn’t opposed to doing the chasing, but tonight she felt like being pursued. Letting her gaze linger a moment longer, she offered him an inviting smile.

Then she turned and strode toward the beach. At the edge of the terrace, she took the boardwalk back the way she’d come. A tendril of excitement wound around her. The sparks were still there, arcing between them. Perhaps if she didn’t stop at an almost-kiss this time, she could finally get him out of her head.

When she came to the end of the boardwalk and found an expanse of sand before her, she knew she’d gone the wrong way. That’s what she got for walking around preoccupied. Not to mention, she’d failed to memorize the map during the plane ride the way Ceara had. With tall trees and thick shrubbery surrounding her, it was hard to tell exactly where she was. But the path before her was clear and lit by small lanterns. And she had no doubt that her wolf was right behind her.

She stepped into the sugar-soft sand and the chunky heels sank. Her arms flailed as her ankles twisted. Years of battle had taught her how to stay upright in the toughest conditions. Her lightning-fast reflexes kicked in and she righted herself before frowning down at the shoes. Bending at the waist, she unbuckled the straps and slipped her feet out. The hair on the back of her neck stood up as a shadow fell across the sand at her feet.

“For a minute there, I thought you didn’t remember me.” Without even looking at his face, she knew the deep masculine voice belonged to her wolf.
I am giving Fangs, Fur & Mistletoe (Mystic Isle, Book One) by Selena Blake a rating of 2 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
