Werewolves Be Damned by Stacey Kennedy

Nexi Jones—part witch, part guardian, and wannabe kick-ass warrior—can’t throw a punch or conjure the simplest magic. But that doesn’t stop her from hunting the werewolves who slaughtered her human family. She’ll have her revenge, but only if Kyden, the elite guardian, would get the hell out of her way.  Kyden can’t decide if Nexi wants to get herself killed or if she just has no clue what she’s doing. But her father made it clear: keep Nexi safe…or else. Of course, the more Nexi runs toward revenge, the more she needs Kyden’s aid, and as she grows into her power and confidence, so does his desire to protect her. The only problem? She’d rather he dropped dead.  
But when a vampire paints a bull’s-eye on Nexi’s back, she’s hard-pressed to deny Kyden and the help he’s offering. Even if it means getting her revenge will be a little bit harder. At least it will still be as sweet.  
This story was previously published elsewhere under the title The Willow in 2010, and has been revised and expanded for Entangled Publishing.


Werewolves Be Damned by Stacey Kennedy
1 out of 5

Boy did I dislike this book… And like many things, let me tell you why I didn’t like this book.
1.   There wasn’t a lot of setup.  You get a Prologue and then without any real set up, you go straight into the first chapter.  At first you think months (maybe a year) has passed… Nope.  6 weeks has passed since the prologue, and you find that out in chapter 2/3.  Really?
2.   Nixi was an irritating spoiled brat.  She was cruel to her soul sister, disrespectful to her bio-dad, and was annoying beyond belief. 
3.   There was no character development.  I made it half way through the book, and there was NO DEVELOPMENT!  Really?  When things changed, they just “happened” without any work or reason.  Kinda like unbelievable magic.  It just doesn’t feel possible.
4.   It was a poorly written with a lot of run-on sentences (big pet peeve!), and a lot of grammatical errors.  Honestly, a good editor should have caught these issues and gotten them fixed. 

Overall, I didn’t finish this book because it wasn’t written well, and with each chapter, I got more and more annoyed.  I don’t recommend this book.
