Back Cover Blurb:

Hunter Easton is screwed. Fans, producers, and his agent are all chomping at the bit for the next book in his wildly popular Wolf’s Landing series, but he’s got epic writer’s block and is way behind deadline. Then he reads The World Tree, a fanfic novel by his online friend “Lone Wolf.” It isn’t just a great story—it’s exactly what the series needs.

Kevin Hussain is thrilled when “Wolf Hunter” wants to meet up after reading The World Tree. When Wolf Hunter turns out to be Hunter Easton himself, Kevin is starstruck. When Hunter tells him he wants to add The World Tree to Wolf’s Landing, Kevin is sure he’s being pranked. And when their online chemistry carries over—big time—into real life, Kevin is convinced it’s all too good to be true.

The problem is . . . it might be. The book deal, the sex, the money—everything is amazing. But fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and Kevin is left wondering if Hunter really loves him, or just loves his book.

My Review:

This is a well written novel. This duo of authors definitely work well together, creating a seamless whole. The authors bring this world to life quite a vivid manner. The beginning of the novel definitely digs a lot into the past novels in the series, but yet also doesn’t give enough context for this to be easily read as a standalone. By the ending I was definitely getting into the stories.

The characters in this novel were definitely difficult to connect with. They were stereotypical and frankly, I found one to be rather whiny. The main characters were somewhat superficial. The premise for their meeting was unique and entertaining.

Although this was a rather enjoyable read, I just couldn’t get fully into the story.
