Hello Gemmies! I have an entertaining new book review to share with you today. Love and Other Wild Things by Molly Harper is a new adult paranormal contemporary novel, and the second book in the Mystic Bayou series. Love and Other Wild Things continues the story from How To Date Your Dragon. We are once again taken to Mystic Bayou, a tiny hidden town nestled in the swamplands of Louisiana. Mystic Bayou is home to shape-shifters, vampires, witches, dragons, and humans...all living alongside each other in harmony. Love and Other Wild Things was a cute, entertaining read for me. I'm really enjoying this series so far! You get a wonderful mix of humor, drama, love, mystery, and sexy times! I can't wait to continue on with the next book. This story was initially released as an Audible Original, but you can also get it in paperback and ebook format.
Love and Other Wild Things follows energy witch Danica Teel, who has been hired by the League to figure out why the rift has been becoming more and more unstable. Dani is snarky, sarcastic, independent and sexy. I really like her as a protagonist. We also follow everyone's favorite mayor and bear shifter, Zed. Zed is basically a huge cinnamon role, especially when it comes to his feelings for Dani. I love everything about this book and couple. Danica and Zed are so cute, their social eccentricities are perfect for each other.
We also get glimpses of some of the beloved characters from How To Date Your Dragon including Jillian and Bael. The character development was great, and like book one we get a light mystery. We also find out about an outside group opposing the Leagues work. I'm sure that will lay the way for more conflicts in future books. Please note: this is an adult novel and there are several steamy, sexy scenes. The sex scenes are tastefully done and felt more organic than they did in How to Date Your Dragon. All in all, Love and Other Wild Things is a really fun read, I encourage you to give it a try.
If you like romance, magic, mysteries, paranormal creatures galore, and humor go read this book! Published by Audible Originals, Love and Other Wild Things is available for purchase now. I give Love and Other Wild Things 4 out of 5 gems. Happy Reading!
