They may not be the perfect match…But they’re having fun.
Going to the chapel, and her sister is going to get married…no matter what.
Josie Cole might be unlucky in love, but she’s a pro at matching other couples. When her sister gets married to the man of her dreams, it’ll be Cole Matchmaking Services one-hundredth match, and secure Josie a television special that would boost business.
Private investigator–and werewolf–Ryder McManus doesn’t believe in marriage. Catching cheating spouses has taught him there is no such thing as happily ever after. But then he never expected to find his fated mate, Josie, at his best friend’s wedding festivities.
When Josie and Ryder are together, the chemistry heats up. While he’s trying to stop the wedding, she’ll do whatever it takes to give the couple a dream day. But the secret he’s trying to expose might just ruin everything…

WHAT A WEREWOLF WANTS is the third instalment in the San Francisco Wolf Pack series; while I thought book 2 was a bit weaker, Kristin Miller really nails it with WHAT A WEREWOLF WANTS!
Josie Cole’s sister Carrie is getting married, and this will be the hundredth successful match for Josie Cole’s Matchmaking Services, which means a huge career boost and a TV special. However, Josie is still single. Carrie is marrying Mitch, a friend of Ryder McManus, who will be his best man. Ryder has given up on love, which is unfortunate as he is a werewolf and that means a much shorter life span, without his fated mate. Ryder is a private investigator dealing mostly in catching cheaters, which doesn’t help his outlook. He thinks Mitch must tell Carrie he’s a werewolf; a few days from the wedding, and Mitch is not saying a word. When they first meet, Josie thinks Ryder is really hot, and vice versa, but worse for Ryder: Josie is his Luminary, his fated mate, the one with whom he is destined to spend his life with, and she is a mortal to boot! And Ryder is determined to stop the wedding, while Josie is adamant that it must happen, and things go from bad to worse when Ryder mentions that Mitch has not been entirely truthful…
The writing is flawless, there are no lulls in the story, no filler, and the pacing is impeccable. There are a few hilarious moments as well as funny banter, and Ms. Miller adds to her already fascinating world. The characters, both principal and secondary, are all equally interesting, and I loved how the two couples handled their issues. The friendship between Josie and Carrie, as well as between Mitch and Ryder felt entirely genuine. But best of all was the way Ms. Miller dealt with how Mitch and Ryder reveal what they are; it was done very convincingly, and I felt that’s how it would happen in real life. WHAT A WEREWOLF WANTS offers an excellent look at what make relationships work, and coupled with the paranormal angle, it’s even more compelling. It was absorbing to see things evolve and watch the bond get stronger between Ryder and Josie, apart from the fated mate thing. There might have been instalust there, and again everything was entirely plausible; Ryder and Josie had to work on their issues to get their Happy Ever After, and all this was done brilliantly! Excellent read!
