    The last book i read by jo raven is Caveman. And i was disappointed with that. So when i got my hand on Bad WOlf audiobook, i try to be optimist. The book indeed deliver all of that jo raven signature story. Broken hero and a heroine to save him. Although the beginning of the story where Jarred proposition Gigi makes me cringe in disgust. However the middle of the book when Jarred shows his vulnarability, i swoon back in. Needless to say, this bo...

    If you haven't read the Caveman series by Jo Raven, then don't panic. While this story is loosely connected to it - alright, so Gigi is Merc and Matt's sister; so this is her story and how they ended up where they did at the time of their lives. It was the kind of story that was dark - well, the background was and is. It's the whole drug/gang scene and this author didn't sugar coat just who can be dragged into the world without a second thought. ...

    This author has so much potential but needs to hire a really good editor ASAP! This is the third book i've read by this author, and I have encountered problems that should have been caught in the editing stages with every single one. Im sorry but I just cant do it anymore! I refuse to pick up another book by Jo Raven until she puts out content that is perfectly edited, easy to read and not confusing AF. She can easily be a 5 star author if she ju...

    This is a good story. Jarett and Gigi are the bad boy and good girl couple that anyone can fall in love with. This book has wonderful characters and a great storyline. I will say that sometimes it was slow but not overly slow. We got to see some past characters and enjoyed new ones. Good book overall. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

    Jo Raven never fails to twist her readers up with emotion and desires over her trouble bad boys so it was not a surprise to me that I fell so immediately and devastatingly hard for Jarett. Because I had already met Gigi in previous books, I couldn't wait to get to know this girl that is full of sunshine and sass in equal doses and happens to be just what the dark and broody Jarett needs to live a better life and experience love. It wasn't long an...

    I don't know how many times I have started, deleted and then started again to write this review. I haven't read a good Jo Raven book since Ink Babies. I was hoping this would be like the Ink Brotherhood/Damage Control. In some ways Bad Wolf reminded me of bits of different previous characters. Though I honestly don't know if I truly liked this book or just read it because it was Jo Raven. This is probably going to be one of my worst written revie...

    Awe Rett...I just love Jo Ravens tortured heroes and Jarett oh dear, I just wanted to hug him at times and make it all better. Jarett or Rett has been so unfortunate in life, first he loses his parents, goes into foster care then when he finally has a home he loses his foster dad too who was a police officer and got caught up in a shootout. The guy has one misfortune after another. Gigi is the sister of Octavia, so if you have read previous books...

    What an AMAZING read... This story had what I felt initially was a brief, slow build and I wasn’t sure where it was going. Ummm I quickly overcame any misgivings. Rett and Gigi are awesome. They felt real and behaved and thought like young people. Not immature but youthful and often naive, only looking at something from their own point of view. This book is beautiful on its own but it had some of the flavor of Ms Raven’s Inked Brotherhood/Dam...

    This one was a bit of a slow build for me ijn the beginning but I quickly became hooked on the story. I really loved Jarett and Gigi. He's the dangerous bad boy and she's the girl next door. I really enjoyed the darker story and it was full of angst so there was never a dull moment. This book was given to me at my request and I provided this review voluntarily

    Bad Wolf is not the first book I've read from this author. I've loved all of the previous books I've read from her, so I expected this book to blow me away. I was more frustrated than anything with this story. Jarett was too good a brother and son. He definitely deserved more than what he was given from his so called family. I understood his "mom's" situation but I hated his brother Sebastian and really wished he was killed off. From the very beg...

    5 stars, my heart feels as tortured as a Jo Raven guyJeez, first things first... When Jo Raven says tortured guy, she means business...Real tough business... I have a big problem with Jo Raven's books and characters. I read my first book Asher and fell in love, then read another book and fell in love too. Then read the next book and fell in love again... and so on... but I never ever fell out of love with one of them. My sweet boys and strong gir...

    Jarett is a very complex character. It seems like the more the book goes on the more you want to know about how he thinks. Why he does what he does. I love how Gigi doesn’t give up even when she’s not 100% sure. You can tell she’s always in Jaretts mind even when he tries to rote the her and keep here away from all the danger. Loved this book and can’t wait for Merc I have a feeling he’s going to be my favorite character!

    I am a huge Jo Raven fan. I have loved all her books so far and I really enjoyed this one too.Jo has a talent for causing emotional torture to her characters and Jarret certainly had the tortured bit down. Let's just say I needed tissues.This book is good and I definitely recommend it but ROOK is still my fave.

    Another fantastic book by Jo. I'm so glad I read this early. This is my favorite book of Jo's. It was hot, well written and not to mention Jarrett is one sexy beast. I couldn't stop reading after I started. Cannot wait for her next read.I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    It's been a long journey since the first day that I had venture into the book world and I regret nothing. Lol. On the contrary I lived and loved every second of it and being a greedy girl I always want more. There are genres that I won't venture out but there are others that I can't start fast enough. In this odyssey I've meet several authors, unfortunately not in person yet, that made me fall in love with books and this lady is one of them. Jo R...

    I'm howling at the moon!Wow! What can I say? Jo managed to blow my mind every damn time I read one of her books! Gigi wasn’t one of my favourite characters, and I was unsure what her story was going to like. She always seemed but stand offish, and unwilling to help people unless they agreed with her, almost spoilt. However, I now see her for what she truly is, a kind and loving person, who grew so much throughout the novel, she allowed herself ...

    5 Stars to Bad Wolf by Joe Raven.When I pick up a jo Raven novel I know I’m about to be gutted. Her heroes are tough, and arrogant, sexy and intense. They are protective beyond the normal without being over the top possessive. But the stand out trait in their character is a tortured, heartbreaking, gut wrenching past. And in BadWolf, our hero, Jarrett, is Jo’s latest victim.Jarrett is an intense man. He has had a past no one should have to su...

    This family has been so amazing. I've loved Gigi throughout all of the other books, but this gives her a whole new light. Gigi and Rett are so awesome!Jarett has so much going on in his life and he's so serious about it. The poor guy is really letting his past get the best of him. But then comes Gigi and she doesn't know how to say no. That is what I love about her. She knows what is right and isn't going to give up until she's done what she can....

    Jarrett aka Rett, be still my weak little heart. This young man and all the bad luck he had when he was growing up. He truly believes that he doesn’t deserve to be loved like Gigi loves him. He feels cursed, that anyone that gets near him dies or leaves him. Gigi did once but not by choice, she tried to be with him but darkness was his friend and he didn’t want this good girl to be his and then watch her leave so he did it first but he never ...

    "... Gigi is bright like a star, with a core of dark and steel."Nothing described Gigi's character better than this line out of the book. Honestly after Jagged Edge I thought we hit the rock bottom of darkness by Jo Raven, but this book took the cake. It was darker and grittier than everything else before and I loved it. I wanted this book ever since we got glimpses on Gigi and Jarrett in Mancave. Hints and Secrets that made me want to have this ...

    This whole new world of characters has been a breath of fresh air. I held so much love for the inked and damage boys, but this new series is just equally as amazing. Matt and Octavia got their HEA and moved their families from the small town of Destiny to build a better life. This was where Octavia's younger sister had befriended the town loner Jarett, however their friendship ended when she left Destiny.A few years have passed and time has not b...
