A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...

This lone wolf falls hard...for his enemy.

Unmated werewolves don't normally live past three hundred years old...and billionaire Jack MacGrath is cutting it close. Sure, he has almost everything-the respect of his peers, a mansion in San Francisco, a private jet, and fast cars. But without a mate, Jack's in trouble. Then he sees her. Gorgeous, proud...and his enemy.
Isabelle Connelly is good at hiding things from her father. Like her success as a painter, or the incredibly intense attraction she has to Jack MacGrath. After all, she's royalty and falling for anyone lesser-to say nothing of a rival pack-would be, er, unseemly. Now she must choose between her duty to her family and her pack...or her perfect fated mate.

My Review:

I'm loving Entangled's Covet new release, Beauty and the Werewolf was such a great book to read. Not only was it a page-turner, but it was also filled with romance and a little travel adventure.

Isabelle Connelly comes from a royal wolf clan that has been known for not liking the San Francisco clan. So when she decides to travel to San Francisco to collect a very special painting, she didn't know that the stranger who ended up winning the bidding for the painting was non other than Jack MacGrath, her father's enemy. Yet knowing that she can't go home without the painting, she decides to go on a date with Jack only to have him tell her that she is his mate. You can already guess what happens when he tells her that, she doesn't accept the fact that he could be his mate, but at the end Jack stricks a deal with Isabelle. Stay with him for a couple days to see if her wolf feels what he is feeling for her and if she still wants to leave she can take the paintings that she wants. With no other choice, but to accept his offer, Isabelle stays with him only to discover even more secrets about the billionaire who calls himself her mate. 

After living for three hundred years, Jack MacGrath knows that his time is almost up if he doesn't find a mate soon. Though he has accomplished a lot in his life time, he hasn't found the mate that he needs to keep him alive longer. He is told to do things to keep his adrenaline to a high, so he does, and collecting paintings from a famous yet mysterious painter made him feel different, almost better. So when he finds out that there is a painting up for auction, he bids on the painting only to have a very angry yet beautiful women willing to double the money for the painting. Soon he is intrigued to get to know her and quickly finds out that she is indeed his mate. Now he has do to anything in his power to convince her to stay with him or it will be too late for him. 

I really enjoyed reading this book, there were a couple twists and turns that I enjoyed reading about. The only issue that I had with the book, which it didn't affect my overall reading experience that much, was how quickly we jump from one thing to another. The pacing was a bit fast for me, but I still liked the story plot. Isabelle has always wanted to make her father proud, as the next alpha of the pack, she needs to keep her pack's safety at heart at all times. Risking being with someone from an enemy pack is not only going to look bad on her, but also her father is never going to forgive her. So when she meets Jack, she can't accept what he tells her, yet she is willing to be with him for a couple of days. As the two start to get to know each other, and reveal their secrets, the more she feels for him. On the other hand, it does take her a very long time to finally accept that he was made for her. 

Jack is your typical billionaire, he has the jet and fast cars. But his personality is sweet and caring, which is definitely swoon worthy. When he finds out that Isabelle's father is not going to let her be with him, he has to make a pretty tough decision at the end that could either hurt them or help them be together. Overall, I enjoyed reading Beauty and the Werewolf, it was a good book. I especially liked the ending, it just tied everything together nicely. I highly recommend it. :)
