BOOK REVIEW ~~ Dream Catcher -- Woodland Creek Series by M.C. Cerny

Dream Catcher (Woodland Creek)
by M.C. Cerny 

Woodland Creek Series.
30 Authors. 30 Shifter Stories.

Happenstance brought Kerri Harper to Woodland Creek, but will she stay for the wolf intent on mending her broken heart?

Kerri Harper leaves her home in Ann Arbor, to pursue her graduate degree in teaching. She’s looking for a new lease on life after being rejected by her number one school, and her boyfriend…whom she thought was supposed to be her number one fan.

Warren Boone, resident EMS Captain and wolf shifter is on call when Kerri speeds into town. She crashes her car in a ditch that seems to attract outsiders to Woodland Creek like flies on honey. His protective instincts kick in with a howl, and he must protect her from those who wish to keep them apart.

My Review:
4 out of 5 stars

Once again, an author of the Woodland Creek Series does not let me down! This was a very sweet story, that in a lot of ways brought me back to my early twenties, and those feelings you get when you meet your first real love – and especially appreciate it when you’ve spent way too much time on someone that shows the exact opposite of love, which is exactly what Kerri did in this story.

However, when Kerri got to Woodland Creek, I liked that the author didn’t make her instantly fall head over heels literally the second she entered Woodland Creek and met Warren.  It wasn’t instant break up, leave town, fall in love.  Although she ‘accidentally’ met Warren right away, and they were instantly attracted to each other, there was still a very sweet time frame where he just sat back and waited for her previous douche bag to completely leave her life and her heart. 

And by the way, I think the author did use ‘douche bag’ and several other hilarious descriptions for her ex, and descriptions that Warren and his cousin used on each other.  It added to the fun of the book, how the two of them and Kerri’s instant BFF/roommate at college (who also knew Warren and his cousin since they were kids) joked around with each other -- and definitely helped Kerri a bunch more when things got real about Woodland Creek.

Although there were some tense moments, this wasn’t meant to be an action-packed book.  It was about early twenty-somethings going to college, one in a whole new town, finding themselves and each other.  There were definitely some heart-racing in a sexy way scenes, but well placed, and I loved them.  I really enjoyed this book and getting to know these characters.
