Some consequences bite...big time.

Bennett Langdon has a firm no-relationships policy. Still, it doesn't stop her from hooking up with a super-sexy bad boy at her best friend's wedding. After all, it's only one night-what harm could it do? Ten weeks later, a pregnant Bennett has her answer...

Linc Monahan can't believe it. This wasn't supposed to happen. He's a werewolf, and shouldn't be able to father a child with a human. Now Linc has to find some way to tell Bennett that not only do werewolves exist, but she's about to have a baby with one.

But when word of their surprise conception gets out, the fur hits the fan. There are people who don't want this baby to be born-even if it means killing. Now Bennett and Linc aren't just fighting each other...they're fighting for their lives.

Candace Havens was one of the first authors I read when I started reading paranormal romances.  I've had Take it Like a Vamp on my tablet for about two years now.  I haven't read it and for that I'm an idiot.  But with that said, I was excited for Baby's Got Bite.  

I have no words for Baby’s Got Bite.  I loved Bennett and Linc.  I loved the way they interacted with each other.  I loved the story line.  I just simply loved the book.  Going in, I felt like I was missing something by not reading Take it Like a Vamp.  What that something was, I’m not quite sure.  But, I was still able to really get into Baby’s Got Bite.  
Bennett and Linc are a lot alike in some ways.  Neither believes in relationships or think they can be good at them.  They’re protective of those they love and care about.  When their one night stand results in a baby, they each vow to be the best parent they can be, no matter what.

Bennett is funny, brutally honest, and has a severe case of potty mouth.  Linc isn’t the playboy he likes the world to think he is, he’s attracted to and loves Bennett because she doesn’t put him on a pedestal like a lot of other women.  If you’ve read Take it Like a Vamp, you’ll be happy to know that Nick and Casey have roles in this book.

In addition to the storyline of the book, I loved the twist involving Bennett and the little history between Bennett and Linc I didn't see coming.  I even enjoyed the heart pounding “oh my gosh this can’t be happening” moment.  Baby’s Got Bite is definitely a must read.

  1. Thanks for the review and author intro!

    1. You should definitely check her out. I wasn't a paranormal romance fan, until I read her. Lions, Tigers, and Sexy Bears Oh My!

  2. This sounds like fun from the banter to his potty mouth and I like that this has some depth.

    1. I loved this book Kimberly. And actually Bennett is a woman and it's different having the woman with the potty mouth. She's like "F**." Then "S*** I'm not supposed to be cussing in front of the baby. Damnit."
