Spencer never expected his whole way of life could change in a single night. After being attacked by a werewolf, Spencer makes some long-awaited changes to his life. One of those changes is going after Ryder, the young whore he can’t seem to get out of his mind.

Joyee Flynn throws her hat into the werewolf ring with Second Chance Bite, the first book in her Wolf Harem series. To keep the story from becoming a stale retelling of other stories, the author has thrown a twist into the making of her wolves. Now instead of just a bite, which is poisonous, the human must receive the semen of the werewolf, or die.

As for the characters, you can’t help but be drawn to them. Spencer’s turning may be a little difficult for some readers, as it is almost more of a rape than a turning. While we don’t get to see the difficulties this causes in Spencer’s life, the story picks up several years after the bite. We do find out that Spencer has made some important changes. I especially found Ryder intriguing. From the moment he came out to his parents, Ryder’s life has been hell. As a meth-addicted whore, the connection he feels with Spencer is different from anything he’s felt before, and those feelings come across clearly for the reader. The sex between these two is intense, making for some very hot scenes, so beware. While I felt Ryder’s detox went more smoothly than in reality, I did find those to be some of the best moments in the story, as it showcased the developing feelings of the two men.

This is an ongoing series and the author has left the story with a bit of a cliff hanger. After adding to their family by changing another young man in need, Spencer, Ryder and Luc find out there is a Wolf Council and they have broken more than a few rules. If you want a story with some bite to it (no pun intended) then pick up Second Chance Bite by Joyee Flynn.
