Sometimes it’s harder to teach a young dog new tricks.
That’s why werewolves embark on a Howling: a three-year rite of passage in which they’re sent to a group residence to wrestle with their wolfy instincts and assimilate into the Wider World. But Tanner Araya’s Howling is almost over, and he could be called back to his remote pack at any moment. His twenty-first birthday might be his last chance to act on his strongest instinct and finally kiss Chase Denney.
Chase is RA at the Howling residence affectionately dubbed “the Doghouse,” and he takes his job seriously. So seriously that when he realized he was developing feelings for a resident, he forced himself to keep Tanner at a distance. But now that Tanner’s twenty-one, he’s not Chase’s charge any longer. They could be friends or—if Chase is lucky—something more. At least until they both return to their home packs for good, as tradition demands.
It would take a miracle for them to get together—especially when the other Doghouse werewolves insist on “helping.”
Warning: Many Frisbees are harmed in this story, forgiveness is not always easier than permission, and the five-second rule does not apply.

MMy Thoughts and Review:
Sooo Howlin’ Cute!
Oh, my goddess! This was so cute! I know it sounds silly and maybe even a bit crazy, but I think I may have raised four shifters instead of boys and never really realized it. The antics the goofy escapades junior Weres get up to are so much like how life was in my house a few years ago… Minus the butt-sniffing, of course. 😂
Chance and Tanner were sweet together, and I appreciated that there was just enough angst to keep me reading and not eye-rolling. I loved Greg Boudreaux’s narration and I hope that EJ Russell goes back and creates audiobooks for the books that had the characters who cameoed in Howling. So many unique characters that I know Greg would do a smashing job.
The Story focuses on the discovery of the true meaning of pack and family for Tanner and Chase. History and legend that had been hidden for generations are uncovered and while the story has a wonderful HEA for the MCs, Russell did leave it open for the journey to continue.
If you need your spirit lifted, and maybe have a good tussle and ramble around with a pack of supes to help you feel young again, look no further.
