Review by Niki: Wolf Run by BA Tortuga

Title: Wolf Run
Author: B. A. Tortuga
Publisher: Resplendence Publishing, LLC
Rating: 5/5 hearts and 5/5 steamy, sexy, and somewhat silly Smooches… 


Mick is a lone wolf in all ways. He’s left his pack, he’s left his homelands and he’s on the road, footloose and fancy free. Well, at least until he wanders up to a fence and finds a little wolf running his ass off behind it. Mick stops to let the pup out and is stunned to hear the young wolf, Scotty, tell him “no”. Scotty's mate and best friend, Danny, asked Scotty to stay behind the fence, so he will be safe while Danny fights to support them both. All this leaves Mick’s fur standing on end. Maybe, Mick doesn’t need one mate to bring him home. Maybe, he needs two.

Niki-O’s Down-low on Wolf Run:

I admit to being a fan-girl of epic proportions where B.A. Tortuga is concerned. Wolf Run is an excellent example of why and how that status came to be. Simply put, B.A. writes pure entertainment, on the level of hot buttered popcorn and a LOTR marathon.

Oh yeah, bring it on.

Wolf Run is exactly the type of fun and games I’ve come to expect from this delightful author. If you’re looking to impress someone with your acquisition of classical literature bonafides, skip this yummy bon-bon of a story and go straight for the Gabriel Garcia Marquez and William Faulkner, or better yet the Flannery O’Connor.

No, seriously.

If however, you’re looking to be thoroughly entertained drop whatever else you’re doing, get a copy of this grade A cotton candy and prepare to be held in thrall by the smexy shenanigans of three scrum-dilly-ishous shifters. Or, in the lingo of laughter and fun, you’d best get all up on this hot-cha literary snack like white on rice. Or, you know, like Chip on Ken. Heh.

No fooling.

The story is a sweet, easy read that lets the reader slip off the cares and toils of everyday life and honest-to-Pete gives the willing to be entertained reader something to smile about with every new page. That’s pretty amazing return for investment, if you ask me. The writing style maintains a light, engaging feel from start to finish. The comedic timing is spot on… and I mean that not in the sense of there being a ton of belly laughs in the story, but rather in the sense of classic comedy (i.e. things that either end with a happily ever after-ish conclusion, or at least everybody who should live does).   I’m giving this one two thumbs way, way up and telling you right now it will lift the glummest of moods. I’ve got it in my Lit-triage Kit to administer to friends in need of a good recommendation at a moment’s notice… Saucy, sassy and giggle worthy, Wolf Run is a great bite sized snack of yummy words that I cannot recommend enough.
