Wolfmanny by Julia Talbot

Three hot werewolves, sexual tension thick enough to cut with a knife, an impending Colorado winter, and a rambunctious pack of werewolf pups. Stand back and watch the fur fly.

When Kenneth Marcon loses his nanny to a bite from one of his inherited kids, he knows he needs someone strong to contain five werewolf children. What he finds isn’t a stalwart nanny, but a werewolf manny named Jack. Kenneth and his assistant, Miles, aren’t sure if Jack is what they need, but he’s what they have to work with.

Jack’s got what it takes to keep the kids busy—and attract both Miles’s and Kenneth’s attention. The two old friends have been circling each other for years, but with Jack as the final piece to the puzzle, it’s time to finally act on those urges. When Kenneth is forced to travel instead of solidifying the bond with his new mates, Jack and Miles take desperate measures to get him back, even as they save the kids from one disaster after another. Amidst the chaos, they have to learn how to become not just a pack, but a family.

I absolutely loved Wolfmanny. I’ve seen many a reader state that they won’t read romances that include children as main characters, thankfully I am not among that group because the kids in this book had significant roles that contributed to the storyline without taking it over. Talbot did an excellent job of striking the balance between family time with the kids and sexy fun times between the three wolf shifters. Boy, did she ever!

When Jack accepts an assignment to serve as the manny for five kids, with the oldest being a teenager who is beginning to shift, he has no idea that he’s about to have all his dreams come true, even the ones he never risked imagining. While Kenneth has the utmost respect for his old friend Richard, the owner of Nose to Tail, Inc., he’s not feeling reassured when he discovers the kids’ new nanny is actually a manny. But before Kenneth can send the manny packing, Jack proves exactly why Richard sent him by getting to work straightaway, starting with wrangling the three-year-old twins. As Jack settles into his new job, he finds himself falling in love with the children and enjoying the sense of home that Kenneth and his nieces and nephews offer. Actually, all of Kenneth’s people add to that feeling of home, especially Miles, Kenneth’s beta and best friend. Miles finds himself in a tricky position because despite his decades’ long unrequited love for Kenneth, he feels a pull of attraction to Jack that he cannot resist. When Jack and Miles finally succumb to the pull between them, they are interrupted by Kenneth, who promptly lays claim to both men, making it clearer than ever who the alpha is. But Kenneth isn’t just the alpha, he also owns and operates a multi-billion dollar company that keeps him busy and traveling, much to the disappointment of his charges and Miles. When a major deal threatens their fledgling relationship and Kenneth’s health, Jack does what he must to insure that his new family is safe, happy, and together – even if it puts his position within the pack, the family, and their threesome at risk.

I really can’t express how much I enjoyed Wolfmanny. I really hope that the powers that be turn it into an audiobook because this is one I can see queuing up for a listen again and again. Talbot does a great job in not only creating a convincing ménage relationship between Jack, Kenneth, and Miles, but also creating a believable family environment for them and the children, as well as the few strays they “adopt” along the way. I also loved how realistic the children were, both in their interactions with one another and their interactions with the adults. Despite the significant age differences and that there were FIVE of them, the kids came across as individuals, each with their own personality quirks and loveable traits. I enjoyed how they were woven into the storyline, making them key characters who took center stage only when it was appropriate to the scene. In my opinion, Talbot did a wonderful job in striking the balance between kid-centered scenes and adult-only scenes. Although there is no indication on the publisher’s website that this is the first in a series, I do hope that Talbot is inspired enough to bring us more tales from either the Marcon household or Nose to Tail, Inc. as there are plenty of other characters whose stories are ripe for the telling. Wolfmanny was an extremely enjoyable read for me and I look forward to rereading it soon… or listening to it on audiobook (hint, hint).

Stories that leave a mark. Julia Talbot loves romance across all the genders and genres, and loves to write about people working to see past the skin they're in to love what lies beneath. Julia Talbot lives in the great mountain and high desert Southwest, where there is hot and cold running rodeo, cowboys, and everything from meat and potatoes to the best Tex-Mex. A full time author, Julia has been published by Dreamspinner Press, Changeling Press, and others. She believes that everyone deserves a happy ending, so she writes about love without limits, where boys love boys, girls love girls, and boys and girls get together to get wild, especially when her crazy paranormal characters are involved.

She also writes BDSM and erotic romance as Minerva Howe.
