Ricky Lee has no plans of getting serious about anyone, but he will protect Toni Jean-Louis Parker. Not just because he’s been hired to do so, but because it’s the right thing to do. And if that means traveling around the country with one complicated She-jackal, dealing with chocolate-eating wild dogs, instigating trouble between his brothers, and having the most amazing sex he’s ever had…well, who said his job didn’t have perks?
Toni doesn’t know how she keeps getting herself into these situations. But even she has to admit there’s something about Ricky Lee Reed that she finds kind of interesting…and downright sexy. Now they just have to survive long enough to figure out if what they have is worth fighting for…
Wolf with Benefits is filled with humor, sarcasm, romance, and a cast of characters that reminds me of a really great sitcom. Even though it is the 8th book in the author’s Pride series, it’s easy to fall in step with the storyline and secondary characters.
Toni has always managed her family’s lives and they take her for granted. They are all extremely intelligent and gifted and she has always felt like she is not. But, her superior organizational skills are what keeps the entire clan’s schedules from falling apart. She lands a job of her own managing the travel and schedule of a hockey team, which leaves her family out of sorts. I love Toni and her strong will! She is extremely smart, but has always lived in the shadow of her nine younger siblings. Their snarkiness was cruel and horrible! I wanted to reach into the pages and strangle them all!
Ricky Lee is lazy and thinks life is a big arena for his entertainment. He takes his security job very seriously and comes to Toni’s rescue. He seems to be where ever she goes, especially when things are extremely chaotic for her. But, the sexy wolf can’t seem to stay away from her even though she is a she-jackal.
This story left me laughing so hard that my stomach hurt! I don’t remember reading anything else by this author, but I’m going to go check out the rest of her books! There are so many storylines going on, but it doesn’t get confusing because they all fuse together. I will say that there are a lot of secondary characters, but they only enhance the entertainment.
