From Ronda Thompson's website:
"Supermodel Lou Kipinski seems to have it all. But beauty is only skin deep—and sometimes Lou's porcelain complexion can get a bit hairy. The only thing worse than a furry fashion faux-pas? Fangs in her million-dollar smile. That's what happened six months ago, when Lou had her first outbreak. But now that she's at the height of her career she absolutely must find a cure…So what's a single werewolf gotta do?"
"Most women find the bloating, cramping, and bitchiness of PMS bothersome at worst. I turn into a monster a week before my period...literally" So starts the first novel in a new series by Ronda Thompson. Sadly, this will be the only installment, since the author passed away due to pancreatic cancer in 2007.
Lou Kipinski was not always supermodel material. Her transformation to striking good looks coincided with another, of a canine persuasion. After seven years of attempting to forget her past life, Lou is on a mission to locate her birth parents and the answers for all of her werewolf questions. While digging for information, Lou is plagued by nightmares of a werewolf serial killer, whose victim profile just happens to fit Lou completely. On top of investigating her own past, Lou finds herself caught up with a hunky police officer in charge of the murder cases. It is a race against time to figure out who she is and save her own tail from being chomped by a killer that gets closer every day.
Confessions of a Werewolf Supermodel is a light and fun read. The characters are entertaining and the suspense continues at a gradual climb until the final few chapters where it sky rockets. At times, the story seems to put too much emphasis on Lou's possible bedmates, but the plot picks right up a few pages later. Along with many others, I am sad that there will not be other installments in the series. I would have thoroughly enjoyed uncovering Lou's past with her.
If you are looking for a fun, humor filled page turner concerning supermodels, werewolves, hot men, and a sprinkling of vamps for good measure, spend a few afternoons with Ronda Thompson.
