The Werewolf Prince and I by Marian Tee
Broke, nerdy, and self-confessed wimp Misty Wall leads a ho-hum life as a Grammar Nazi intern, which of course earns her feelings of hate-at-first-sight from her colleagues at Ze Morgue, a.ka. Moretti Inc.'s Administration Department.
Misty has always wished for something exciting to spice up her boring-with-a-capital-B existence, but she never thought it would come in the form of a gorgeous six-foot-plus billionaire. The world knows him as Domenico Moretti, the ruthless, cunning, and aloof CEO of Moretti, Inc, a.k.a. her boss.
Gifts of (mis)fortune come in threes, they say, and it’s certainly the case with Misty, whose life is turned upside-down by Domenico Moretti’s three shocking revelations.
One, he’s a werewolf (who’s also a prince).
Two, he wants her in his bed – him, the guy who actually had to file a TRO against an obsessive supermodel.
And three, he has a proposition she never – and she means never – ever sees coming.
This is the first time I have read a Marian Tee book. And I have got to say I'm hooked. As you know by now I don't like giving the story away, so there is no spoilers in this review.
The story is about Misty and Domenico. Misty is a intern who proofreads everyone's work to check for grammar, which has made her an outcast in Moretti Inc. Domenico is the handsome CEO and prince to the Moretti clan, who is looking for a human wife to get back at his dad. Misty lives at home with her siblings who are all foster kids to the laziest mum in the world. My favourite quote at the beginning is when Domenico is watching Misty arrive at work.
"Her curves were a rare blessing - made to be shaped by a man's hands"
This book had it's claw's dug in deep, I couldn't put it down, my emotions were all over the place I laughed, I wanted to scream at times at Misty's stupidity, but she made me laugh this was my favourite quote-
"Do you have a restroom somewhere? I'm about to pee in my undies. I'm that scared."
This is the moment Misty get called to Domenico's office, I was cringing, but it was funny. This book for me is up there with my favourite werewolf novels. I can't wait to read A Royal Heartbreak(book 2)
I loved this book it was amazing. The pace, flow and characters were all just right.
I am giving this 5/5 stars and 3/5 movie moments
About the Author
Marian Tee is a Filipino-Chinese writer from the Philippines. She started writing seriously when she was 18, during her first year in college. For her day job she provides online content. Articles, website pages, press releases, reviews - the works. She works from home. "It's a cushy job, and I'm lucky to have it. I get to learn new things every day, and this helps me with my other work. The one that has to do with storytelling." Marian believes her characters are usually quirky because she's a mass of contradictions herself. She's a Business Management graduate who also took formal lessons in Nihongo (just for the sake of reading manga) and attended classes in hip-hop dancing for several years. Marian has a host of books under her belt, that I can't wait to read.
