Recovering from back surgery, I have been listening to so many stories this past week trying to stay sane! I've started many books but actually only finished a few because they are not holding my attention. However, this story was a solid home run with me. It was cute and so funny, it had me laughing out loud... which hurt but I didn't mind.
Poor Max, his life mate journey was much harder than he anticipated when he heads to Hoboken to find his destined mate. He gets caught by animal control and is put on "death row", but his life mate, JC, adopts him just in time. Since shifting in front of everyone is not an option, he pretends to be her adopted dog that she takes home, baths and names Fluffy. However, the next day when she gets home from work, she finds Fluffy has ran away and a hot new guy has moved in the next door apartment, and the sparks fly between them. But by the end of the night when JC is hurt and crying because she cannot find "Fluffy", he can't take the tears so continues to be her pet, and her new boyfriend at the same time. This turns out to be a lot of work for Max and he can barly keep up but it is funny as heck to listen too!
I enjoyed both the story and narration and will continue the series. I've also "wish list" other stories by Dakota.
So worth the time I spent listening to this one but I will admit I bought this story on sell (whispersync.)

I really loved the story, the premise, the narration. I just wish it was more PG. I like for the intimacy to be what I imagine, not what the author tells me to imagine. Other than that a great start to a series I will unfortunately not continue because of the explicitness.

I found this by accident and umm'd and ahh’d about getting it. I'm so glad I did. It made me laugh out loud and gave that feel good factor. I loved the switch of viewpoint, especially when it was to Fluffy.
Great narration too, that's always a bonus.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, it's a funny, lighthearted story definately worth using a credit for. Great characters and a good twist on the usual werewolf story
What other book might you compare An American Werewolf in Hoboken to, and why?
It's reminds me a lot of books by Robyn peterman, similar style of story telling and humour
Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Not listened to any others by Hollie Jackson but she is really good, I would definately listen to books narrated by her again
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me laugh, quite a few times must have been getting some strange looks from people in other cars
Any additional comments?
Great book, thoroughly recommend
