Nick didn’t want to be a werewolf. Hell, he didn’t even knew they existed until his ex- boyfriend bite him. However, now that Nick is a werewolf, he’s having trouble controlling some of his feelings. Rather than hurting anyone, he’s decided to keep to himself, that is until young Julian comes along.

Camwolf starts off a little dry, but give the book a chance as it picks up fast. In fact, I would recommend not starting this book at night unless you want to stay up late since this book will keep you turning the pages. The characters are interesting; Nick is struggling with being a werewolf, something that occurred without his approval. Julian is a first year student that grabs Nick’s attention. The chemistry between them is intense from the beginning but due to Nick’s ignorance of his new condition, the two have trouble getting together. Julian does not make it easy on the man, either, as he is bound and determined to get his man. Yet, Julian is keeping secrets that come back to cause trouble for the two men.

There are more than a few twists and turns in this story that keep it very entertaining. There are, in my opinion, a few unanswered questions that make me wonder if the author has plans for a follow-up. There was one thing that drove me crazy, however, and that was Nick’s age. While I have no problems with May/December relationships - in fact these stories can be quite fun - there was never any clear understanding of how much older Nick was, even though the difference in their ages was stressed more than once.

Camwolf was a very interesting story, one that I strongly recommend, and plan on reading again.
