Peek Inside The Big Bad Wolf

Just because Kensey Deaton’s family is werewolf royalty doesn't mean she'll fall in line like some perfect little princess. Her plans don't include an arranged marriage! Slade McAlister can't escape the stigma of his reviled father. So when his neighbor Kensey—the girl of his dreams and his nightmares—proposes a solution to solve both of their problems, he sees an opportunity he can’t ignore. As long as all that fake PDA doesn't turn into more...

Kensey Deaton comes from an elite werewolf lineage, but just because her family is royalty, doesn't mean she'll fall in line like some perfect little princess. She has plans and they don't include an arranged marriage!

Slade McAlister has his own family drama. His Alpha father happens to be the most reviled wolf on the eastern seaboard, and it's a stigma he can't escape. So when his neighbor Kensey--the girl of his dreams and his nightmares--proposes a solution to solve *both* of their problems, he sees an opportunity he can’t ignore.

Kensey and Slade aren't only from opposite sides of the tracks, they're from opposite sides of the war. But if they can sell their 'relationship', they might just make it out of this with their freedom.

You know, as long as all that fake PDA doesn't turn into more...

The Big Bad Wolf by Jus Accardo is a young adult shifter fantasy read that has a bit of a contemporary romance to it also. The two main characters Kensey Deaton and Slade McAlister alternate their point of view with each chapter.

By Danielle February 21, 2018

I like my shifter romance to follow the mythical rules and this one reminded me more of a religious family wanting to marry off there daughter. This is probably the first shifter novel that doesn't follow the rules that I didn't hate. The story was engaging and entertaining. The wolf reminded me... ...more

By Elaine March 12, 2018

This is a very different take on the rich princess and the pauper, shifter style! Kensey Deaton is the daughter of a high ranking Alpha, a leader of the coalition of werewolves. Slade McAlister is the son of the abusive, renegade Alpha, a low life criminal, who is looked down upon by all the othe... ...more

By Richelle March 06, 2018

This was a cute shifter read by a new to me author. At first the cover threw me off as the main character doesn’t scream “big bad wolf” but nonetheless Slade did live up to his reputation in this story. Kennsey was a spitfire and I loved how she held her ground especially around all the alpha mal... ...more

Thank you to netgalley for providing me this ARC

Kensey refuses to roll over for her father and accept the mate he selected for her, instead she wants to be shown the respect that male werewolves get and be able to choose her own path. Slade wants nothing more but to escape the terror that is his abusive father and pack alpha, but is instead ti... ...more

This was a great twist on the wolf courting concept.

You feel for Slade from the moment you meet him. He has been beaten down his whole life and now believes he deserves the life he has. That he is out of control and isn’t worth taking a chance on. the one thing he wants is freedom. Freedom from... ...more

I've come to the conclusion that I will probably always like the Entangled Teen romances that I read. They are light, fun, and easy to read. There is always something about them that I end up liking and this one is no exception.

I read my first Jus Accardo book back in 2012 and sort of drifted even though it was really good. Then, when Rules of Survival came out, I snagged a copy. It was a 5 star read! Loved it! So I went on to read the first two books in the Infinity series and they rocked. It should come as no surprise... ...more

"I promise, I'm 100 percent committed to our fake relationship."--Slade

The blurb of this book gave me high expectations before I even turned to the first page. It did not let me down.
Kensey and Slade have been next door neighbors for years, and were friends up until a few years ago. Both get an ultimatum from their fathers to claim a mate. Kensey and Slade hatch a p... ...more

3 1/2 stars

Although Kensey and Slade grew up next to each and were best buddies for a long time, the backgrounds of their parents, being so disparate, threw the monkey wrench into their friendship. At least on Slade’s side.

The Big Bad Wolf is a Romeo and Juliet of werewolves with lots of politics... ...more

REVIEW
I have read and adored other titles by Jus Accardo so her name drew me to this title and of course, the fact the book is published by Entangled is another plus point. The fact the genre is paranormal shifter, was the main attraction for me as I enjoy the pack politics and ancient rites and... ...more
