Summary [from the publisher]:
Anton loves a well-prepared steak. That’s all he’s hoping for when he meets Greg, his new live-in chef. Flamboyant and confident, Greg attracts Anton immediately, and he finds himself wanting to know Greg better. Much better. It’s not just a normal attraction for Anton. He’s an unusual man, with unusual desires, and Greg seems to be filling a place in Anton’s life that he’s never explored. Anton prefers to be a civilized man and not let his werewolf self run free, but it’s the wolf that wants to claim Greg for a mate. Someone disapproves of Anton’s relationship with Greg. Someone close to Anton, someone inside his carefully controlled household. As he and Greg come closer and closer to mating for life, the danger gets nearer, forcing them to depend on each other to stay safe, and for Greg to stay sane. Can Anton convince Greg that his wolf would never hurt him and keep Greg safe from the menace outside their relationship, too? Sexy, razor sharp and fast-paced, Bite will keep your heart racing!

My review:
Anton is a sexy alpha werewolf. Greg is the newly hired live-in chef. One glance at his baby blues, tattoo and goatee was enough to bring out Anton’s “uncivilized” nature.

The first half of the book is a lot of repetitive sex scenes complete with biting, growling and rough play that lack excitement and tenderness, and very little plot.

The use of one-word sentences is too frequent and gets annoying after a while.

“Glowing. Eyes didn’t. Oh. “There””.

There’s a bit of humor, though. Anton’s dominant nature and Greg’s cockiness and independent streak often clash, ending up with Greg being the one who gives in. The story starts in the second half, when Greg’s room is vandalized by a mysterious intruder.

More sex scenes follow. Too bad.

Greg is a very talented chef and I would have liked to see more examples of his culinary expertise.

The story races along to a pulse-pounding ending that is so obviously a setup for a future sequel.
