Werewolves Hate Clogs (La Famiglia Mostro Book 1) by K.L. Hiers

Werewolves don't really hate clogs, especially if they are worn by an attractive human working in a flower shop that caters to supernaturals. Not that Neil has any clue there is anything special about Somerstown until he gets a quick education in all things monsters from the werewolf hottie Lou. Soon, Neil is running around town with Lou fighting bad guys, discovering underhanded plots, and experiencing all the fun to be had with a virile werewolf boyfriend.

From the blurb for Werewolves Hate Clogs:

Othniel “Neil” Ricci has a sweet new gig working at his uncle's flower shop—good hourly pay, free room and board, and he has absolutely no idea that the city is apparently infested with monsters.

That is, until he does.

Louis Morénas-Mostro is a werewolf and an underboss in the monstrous crime family who rule over everything that goes bump in the night. When a prized magical artifact becomes inadvertently attached to Neil, Lou is determined to get it back at any cost.

...Even pretending to date him.

Neil finds himself at odds with an entire monster family, their rebellious enemies, and his own growing attraction to Lou. He hopes he lives long enough to find out if their explosive chemistry can lead to something real, but first he has to make sure he doesn’t end up as monster kibble.

SNik's Review:

First in series (La Famiglia Mostro). Paranormal. Light BDSM. Single POV. 

Neil doesnt realize that there are all kinds of supernatural creatures in Somerstown where has taken a job helping his uncle run a flower shop, but once he discovers that his hot date is actually a werewolf and a magic artifact is now attached to his wrist he tries to go with the flow. But starting up a fake relationship with werewolf underboss Lou begins a whirlwind of new discoveries and dangers and soon Neil is just trying to survive in a world filled with monsters and magic. 

This book was such an entertaining action packed adventure, with interesting world building, fun secondary characters, and two main characters that can’t keep their hands off each other. 

There is tons of humor, plenty of steamy times, and Neil and Lou are a couple that you can definitely cheer for as they work towards their HEA. 

Rating: 4.5 rounded up

Angel's Review:

I'm going to be honest, when I first read the description I was intrigued yet wary. I had no idea how the author would manage to pull off writing this and still make it believable? Especially cause I've never read anything by them before, however, after this book I definitely am going to be reading more books by them in the future. 

This book had me giggling and smiling within the first two chapters, and it just kept getting better and better from there. At first there were so many characters! It was a shock, and I was curious as to how they fit into the story. Were they just going to be used as a filler? Would they just help with progression? Or were they going to be an integral part of the overall plot line? 

The answer to those questions is this... They all had a reason to be apart of this story, they all contributed to not just adding fantastic character dialogue, but they also helped not only help the flow of the story but they also were a very integral part to the battle that occurred. I love when side characters aren't just there as background noise, but they actually have a very important role to play. Each character was very well written and described. I could envision each and everyone of these slightly horrifying characters. There is so much detail that at times you kinda wish there weren't! For my brain, when a book is heavily detailed I can actually picture what's being described, because of the highly detailed descriptions of not just the characters but the world/background that the scenes are occurring in. And that happened throughout this whole book!

I have never read a book like this before, there was magic and mystery, romance and spice, action and betrayal, budding friendships, and soo many mythical creatures! Many of which I'm pretty sure was made up from the authors imagination, as I have never come across those names in other works of fiction. All of the interactions the side characters had with the main characters was excellent! It provided such terrific dialogue that it just made you smile because of their banter. (A lot of the bickering is because of Crocs, who knew they were so horrid?) 

I loved the plot! The mystery element was so well written that I couldn't even predict what was going to happen next. This book kept me on my toes which I really, really enjoyed! And the romance that blooming throughout the story between Lou and Neil was so fabulous and spicy! I loved that Neil had no qualms about standing up to Lou even though Lou is a werewolf. Both of their characters were terrific and Lou certainly has his hands full with Neil. 

Overall I immensely joined this story, and I really hope that another story will take place in this world, that's how much I enjoyed it. I'm going to miss nor just Neil and Lou, but also Myrna, Buffy, Flanders, Izba, Princess Bridgette, the others in the bracelet and Shiloh! Izba was definitely my favorite character, 😍 which is shocking considering he's a... House! 

"Wait... So it's like a werewolf period?" This line was hilarious!
