Hunter Easton is screwed. Fans, producers, and his agent are all chomping at the bit for the next book in his wildly popular Wolf's Landing series, but he's got epic writer's block and is way behind deadline. Then he reads The World Tree, a fanfic novel by his online friend "Lone Wolf." It isn't just a great story-it's exactly what the series needs.
Kevin Hussain is thrilled when "Wolf Hunter" wants to meet up after reading The World Tree. When Wolf Hunter turns out to be Hunter Easton himself, Kevin is starstruck. When Hunter tells him he wants to add The World Tree to Wolf's Landing, Kevin is sure he's being pranked. And when their online chemistry carries over-big-time-into real life, Kevin is convinced it's all too good to be true.
The problem is . . . it might be. The book deal, the sex, the money-everything is amazing. But fame isn't all it's cracked up to be, and Kevin is left wondering if Hunter really loves him, or just loves his book.

Fanfic? It doesn't get much more current than that in the romance world!
Hunter and Kevin's story starts when Hunter reads the latest from his favorite fan fiction writer. Pretty normal, right? Expect, the fan fiction is based off his own series, Wolf's Landing.
When they meet, Kevin was completely taken aback since he had no clue that his fan was the actual author of the series. Especially since he sent the author some pretty smutty stuff, which was kind of awkward for them, so it was funny for me.
I thought the premise was really cute, especially with the explosion of fanfic in the recent months. It felt very current, in a cutesy kind of way, as I'm not sure a meeting like this is very realistic. But then it went a bit too far for me. Meeting a fanfic writer of your own stuff? Hm, okay, maybe. Then asking them to write the next book with you? Hm, I don't know about that. I tried to go with it, but it threw me out of the story a couple times. It led to a lot of writing talk that bored me.
Their banter was funny, the sex was hot and there was definite chemistry there. But I think this story would have been much better if it were shorter. While it was enjoyable at times, it dragged and was really hard to finish.
LONE WOLF can be read as a standalone. While it was a good addition to the series, it's far from my favorite.
