This is the first book in the Wolf Cove series.
Abigail (Abbi) Mitchell comes from a devout Christian family, attending a Christian college and engaged to the reverend's son. She follows all the rules and never gets into trouble. She’s even saving herself for marriage. Then she catches her fiance having sex with a raven haired jezebel. Unable to deal with a summer of small town whispers and sad smiles, she runs away to Alaska for the summer to find herself and recover from the heartache.
“That’s why I came to Alaska. I wanted to get away from my life for a while, at least until I have to go back to college. I don’t know what I’m going to do after. Jed and I were going to move back home, get married, and take over the farm. And have lots of sex. Sex, sex, and more sex. It’s all about sex with you guys isn’t it?”
Henry Wolf is the beautifully handsome heir presumptive of Wolf Hotels, a family owned luxury hotel conglomerate. Henry took a risk and invested personally in the newest Wolf property, Wolf Cove. In just a few short months he will become CEO of Wolf Hotels. That is if he can convince his father that his playboy reputation is behind him.
It wasn’t the alcohol. He is that dazzling. And he shaved his beard off, leaving only smooth skin and a stunning profile behind. The man’s face has been carved by the gods themselves, with chiseled edges and a small cleft in his chin.
Henry is at a pivotal point in his career and needs to focus or risk losing all he has worked for. Abbi is struggling to reconcile her mother's values with her own. After a few days on the property, Abbi finds herself the personal assistant to a billionaire. The sparks begin to fly when Abbi and Henry work together in close quarters. If they are not careful they could both lose what they value most.
This book was unexpected. I didn’t expect it to be so funny. As Abigail navigates the world unsheltered for the first time her innocent antics are painfully naive. Her first night on the property and she finds herself “into her cups”. The excruciating details of hangover flashbacks had me laughing so hard I couldn’t see to read. Wolf Bait is sexy and hilarious, everything you could ask for in a book.
