Cry Wolf, Hunting Ground, Fair Game (and why can’t I ever get a picture gallery to appear in the correct order??)

OJ‘s husband Jim coined a great term for these books, and all I can think of right now is fluffernutters. Which is so not right. Excuse me while I go do some research…
I knew it started with an F. But I still think fluffernutters has a certain ring to it. Whadya think?
Sorry, Jim. To quote OJ, “‘Frippers’ is a portmanteau coined by my husband Jim for ‘fur rippers’ which is an adaptation of ‘bodice rippers.’” (You can read OJ’s entire post here.)
Jim’s a pretty smart guy, but I’m thinking he isn’t as into werewolves as the Jills are. Oh well. His loss.
This is a fun series, although there are also Serious Things a happenin’ in werewolf land. Book 1 focuses on Anna as she comes to terms with having a mate (Charles), joining a new pack (werewolf clan, for those of you not into the wolves) where she is actually respected, and her role as Omega of the Pack. In Book 2, Anna and Charles are joined by vampires and witches and it’s a classic tale of good v. evil. Book 3 focuses more on Charles, and his increasing problems with coping with his role as Enforcer (he does all the shit work for his dad…he hunts down and kills the bad guys). Other stuff happens, too, but this was the best part.
And don’t be put off by the cover art. Werewolf Charles looks positively evil on the cover. And while he may (at times) also think he is evil, he’s really a very nice doggie.
When Jill posted her reviews of these books, I was all “Hey! I’m reading those, too!” OJ just happens to be way more on the ball with posting lately. I, obviously, am way behind. Which is okay, because then I can just link to Jill’s way more awesome reviews.
In conclusion (suddenly I feel like I’m writing a high school essay), if your name is Jill YOU MUST read these books. If your name isn’t, and you’re looking for a fairly intelligent fur/bodice ripper, just know that 2 out of 2 Jills recommend these books.
