Night play -- By: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Bride McTierney has had it with men. They're cheap, self-centered, and never love her for who she is. But though she prides herself on being independent, deep down she still yearns for a knight in shining armor. 

She just never expected her knight in shining armor to have a shiny coat of fur...

Deadly and tortured, Vane Kattalakis isn't what he seems. Most women lament that their boyfriends are dogs. In Bride's case, hers is a wolf. A Were-Hunter wolf. Wanted dead by his enemies, Vane isn't looking for a mate. But the Fates have marked Bride as his. Now he has three weeks to either convince Bride that the supernatural is real or he will spend the rest of his life neutered--something no self-respecting wolf can accept...

But how does a wolf convince a human to trust him with her life when his enemies are out to end his? In the world of the Were-Hunters, it really is dog-eat-dog. And only one alpha male can win.

Though I really like their attraction and really adore the characters as a whole, Vane and Bride's story is really not one of my favorites. 

As the first branch off into the Were-Hunter world of the Dark Hunter series, this story is primarily based on describing the roles of the Were-Hunters and the differences between the packs. Vane and Bride have basically an instant connection and are essentially forced together by the Fates (those bitches, LOL).

Overcoming self-esteem issues when your guy is hotter than hot is one of every chubby girl problems, right? Quite a few times I wanted to just roll my eyes at Bride for all her own personal demons and issues, but being a heavy girl myself, I basically could feel everything she did throughout the book. Though, I sincerely hope that not every chubby girl has to land herself a "Taylor" type boyfriend in their lives. No one deserves that. Nor a sister like hers either for that matter. Hurting or not, Bride's sister is a major bitch! 

Anyway, as with every long series, there will inevitably be a few books someone isn't fond of. I've already read this series once, and since this is my second round through, my feels stay the same with Night Play, just not the biggest fan of it but don't regret reading it.
