Book Review: Bitten by Noelle Marie (Once Bitten, Twice Shy #1)

I am hopelessly, madly and irrevocably in love with this book. This is exactly the kind of book that go on to become my guilty pleasures. Also the kind of book where I definitely do not like to bring my brain because these books are meant to be read with heart and not brain

Bitten by Noelle Marie- Official Synopsis

Bastian had to have been the most handsome man that Katherine had ever met. It really was unfortunate that he was also the most stubborn, controlling, downright infuriating jackass she’d ever known as well. Oh, and there was the fact that he was a werewolf – a werewolf who has bitten her.

Sixteen-year-old Katherine Mayes had never believed in mythological creatures like werewolves or mermaids – certainly not those sparkly vampires that her friend Abby was obsessed with. Even when she’s bitten by a massive animal after a reckless night of teenage adventure and her body begins to change in mystifying ways, she can’t force herself to believe in what she’s convinced is impossible. Little does she realize she’s been infected with a disease a little more permanent than the rabies she feels fortunate to have not contracted.

Lycanthropy.

Her fierce denial is soundly shattered, however, when she is simultaneously saved and kidnapped by Bastian and his pack. Forced to leave small town Iowa behind and adjust to their way of life in a hidden society, Katherine must also deal with fighting the pull she feels towards the man – or wolf, rather – who has bitten her and disrupted her life so completely

 

Bitten by Noelle Marie- RWAT Take

Bitten by Noelle MarieThe best part of picking books absolutely on instincts or on random spree is the joy when you hit a jackpot and this was exactly that. In search of audiobooks that could be my companion on an otherwise boring drive to office, I stumbled upon this one. I picked up this book knowing that It would be a quick one that won’t require me applying my brain. And it was true. But what I didn’t anticipate was that I would completely fall for this book. The book absolutely stole my attention and I couldn’t concentrate on anything rather than wanting to get back to the book

 

Bitten could very well be the twilight for werewolves. The book is about how a girl gets bitten by werewolf and how that drastically changes her life . Of course there is a hottie in middle of that.

 

I like the book for so many reasons. It ranges from the fast pace of the book with so many interesting plot development to the ease of narration and its ability to make it exciting. I also love the book for its broody alpha male but at the same time for not shoving the romance onto the reader forcefully.

 

Of course it is a paranormal romance so there is a romance angle but the best part is that it is subtle and sort of mingled with other things. As I said, it is advised to keep your brains and principles outside the door because you may not appreciate the book otherwise.

 

Had I been picking on the book then there are a lot of things that could very well spark a feminist attack on the book. But why should I do that ? Almost every book has things that may irate someone or be hurtful or sexist towards women. So that is the reason why I had trained my brain on reading this book to overlook all those and to let me enjoy the book as a plain paranormal romance

Conclusion

It was superb and I don’t care how many feminist ideologies it hurts or wrecks, I unabashedly would confess to being in madly love with the book.
