Howling at the Moon (Tales of an Urban Werewolf, Book 1)Howling at the Moon (Tales of an Urban Werewolf book 1) by Karen Macinerney
Sophie Garou seems to have it all: a great job at a prestigious accounting firm, a closet that rivals a Nordstrom showroom, and a terrific boyfriend who isn’t afraid to use the “M” word. There’s just one little itty-bitty problem: Sophie is a werewolf–and her time of month has a whole new meaning. Needless to say, life among yummy flesh-and-blood humans is no piece of steak . . . er, cake!, but regular doses of wolfsbane tea and a mother who runs a magic shop have helped Sophie keep her paranormal pedigree under wraps. Still, when a sexy, golden-eyed werewolf prowls into town, Sophie finds herself struggling to keep her animal impulses in check–not to mention trying to keep things on track with her super hot (and super human) lawyer boyfriend. What’s more, someone is threatening to expose Sophie for what she really is. And when her mother is accused of selling a poison-laced potion, Sophie must sniff out a culprit before the fur hits the fan.

This is the first in a new trilogy. It was okay. It is urban paranormal with some romance down the line. You have met the hero but they have not totally gotten together yet. Problem being is that she (Sophie) has a human boyfriend (a really nice one too) that she wants to keep because she wants to be human. So she is in denial of her werewolf side. She meets hot sexy werewolf boy and is very attracted to him but will not drop everything for him. (See above where she has a boyfriend and wants nothing to do with the werewolf world.) She spend most of the book trying to avoid her werewolf side and that culture entirely which is difficult when your mother is a psychic and trying to matchmake you with every wolf she sees. She must stoop to Breaking and entering and finding out about hoodoo while trying to free her rather flighty mother from jail.
I will probably read the next book, but I will get it from the library first.

I seriously have to stop buying urban fantasy books, because they don't have enough romance! Ugh. Too bad for this one, because it's in my TBR pile :(

Sounds ok, I do like urban fantasy. I have so many to catch up on though at the moment I think I will wait and see what you think of the second book before getting it.
