Release & Review - Marriage Claws by Paige Cuccaro

Image and blurb from Goodreads

Title: Marriage Claws
Author: Paige Cuccaro
Release DateJune 27th, 2017
Age Category/ Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Swerve

A sassy, sexy debut about a young woman who agrees to marry her billionaire playboy nemesis to save her business, only to find out he's also a werewolf and that her problems are just getting started.

There are two things Kate Affetto will do anything to protect: the younger brother she's raised ever since their father walked out, and the small diner she's managed to start from nothing in New York City. Things might not always be easy, but at least she gets to call all the shots and follow her own heart. That is until Jack Pensione, irritatingly gorgeous billionaire playboy and CEO/heir to the family empire shows up at her diner with an ultimatum: find $3 million to purchase the space, or vacate so it can be turned into condos.

But Kate isn't going down without a fight. So when Jack offers a third option—marry him, and he'll gift her the space—she agrees, knowing it'll save the life she's built for herself and her brother, and that the marriage will be over practically before it's begun. After all, it's not as if she actually likes Jack, or as if he's actually attracted her at all... Little does she know he's also a werewolf, that he's vying to be the alpha of his pack, and that her problems are just getting started.

Thank you, Swerve!

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for paranormal romance to be a thing again. Seriously. Bring back the vamps and werewolves and everything else.

And I think… I think it’s slowly happening. At least in the adult category.

I’ve been recently approved for three adult paranormal romance books on NetGalley these past few weeks, and since Marriage Claw was the one with the closest publishing date, I immediately started on it. That’s how much I’ve been dying to read a paranormal romance.

Marriage Claws had a few elements that instantly attracted my attention: billionaire alpha (and no, I don’t mean CG kind of billionaire alpha), hard-working MC, a little bit of hate to love and fake relationship, and (obviously) werewolves.

The story started out really well with Kate and Jack going head to head because they wanted different things: she wanted to keep her restaurant and he wanted her to clear the space she was occupying so he could continue with his condo expansion plan. The supernatural elements were already present, but Kate was oblivious to the whole thing—until Jack proposes a deal: marry him and he’ll let her keep her restaurant. But marrying Jack means entering a world she didn’t even know existed.

Up until Kate agreed to marry Jack I was really into the story and anxious for the supernatural elements to come into play. The problem is the supernatural side of the story didn’t live up to my expectations. I thought Kate gave in and accepted Jack’s true nature a little too fast. I wasn’t a fan of how Kate reacted to her brother’s involvement in the story. And I wished Jack had been a more asserting alpha. In the end, I thought there was something lacking to make the story extra special.

I liked how the author added a twist here and there on the werewolves mythology, bringing in new elements or rewriting old ones. I also enjoyed reading about Kate and Jack falling in love.

Most of all, I liked seeing this title out there because it could be a sign one of my favorite genres is coming back to life.
