Hello Fellow Book Lovers. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about The Werewolf Meets His Match by Kristen Painter. The second book in her light paranormal romance series, Nocturne Falls.
Sometimes, when I read a book I don’t write a full review. I just write a paragraph or two to publish on Amazon and Goodreads; especially if it’s a book with thousands of reviews already. But I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go to for paranormal romance fans, so I should really post those smaller reviews on here too, right?

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town where Halloween is celebrated 365 days a year.
The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs and all.
Getting arrested wasn’t on werewolf Ivy Kincaid’s agenda when she arrived in Nocturne Falls, but her life rarely goes according to plan. The upside of spending the night in the local lock-up is finding a hotel room is no longer a worry...but the downside is the man she’s come to marry will get his first impression of her behind bars. Not exactly the way Ivy was hoping to meet her pack's sworn enemy...aka her fiancé.
Sheriff (and werewolf) Hank Merrow is the alpha's heir. Everything he's ever done, from becoming an Army Ranger to serving in law enforcement, has been in preparation for the day he’ll take over. Getting married to cement a shaky truce is no different. Hank will do his duty, even if it means shackling himself to a woman he has no intention of liking, let alone loving.
But Ivy is nothing like Hank expected. As feisty as she is beautiful, she's as determined as he is to make a go of marriage for the sake of peace between their packs. The trouble is, Ivy has secrets that could destroy everything Hank holds dear...including his newfound love for her.

What did I think about The Werewolf Meets His Match?
I’ve only read one other book by Kristen Painter. However, I’ll definitely read more. I found this book very easy to read and love her writing style. I engaged quickly with our romantic couple, Sheriff Hank Merrow and Ivy Kincaid, and enjoyed that Ms Painter created a wealth of characters with various personalities. The town of Nocturne Falls is a great concept and an inspired backdrop to this series. I loved the plot with all its twists and turns and enjoyed how all the story threads were satisfactorily concluded by the end.
I downloaded the Audible version of this book and was impressed with B.J. Harrison’s performance. The pace of his narration was just right and I enjoyed his vocal variances for the dialogue.
There is absolutely no offensive content within these pages – language, violence or sex.
Although some of the implied violence got my blood boiling. Therefore, I’d recommend this book to lovers of charming, paranormal romance tales who enjoy a sprinkling of humour and a happily ever after ending.
Keep reading to find out more about this series and its author.
