What happens when a predator falls for his prey?

Bounty hunting is the perfect job for a maverick wolf; flexible hours, decent pay, the thrill of the chase. But Everett never counted on a doe stopping him in his furry tracks.

Dawn was a prisoner of Mastermind and ended up experimented on, against her wishes. On the run from Furry United Coalition agents, she ends up in the arms—and bed—of a lupine bounty hunter. Instinct tells her to run when she gets a chance because everyone knows not to trust the big, bad wolf, but her heart begs her to stay.

When the result of genetics gone wrong rears its mutated head and threatens both of their lives, will they manage to survive and discover if a wolf deserves a happily ever after?

Doe and the Wolf is the fourteenth (14) book I’ve read using the Scribd service and the fifth book in the Furry United Coalition (F.U.C.) series by Eve Langlais. This book is currently on sale at Kobo for $3.99. I am a long standing Eve Langlais fan so I did not discover her via Scribd.

This one was cute…but by the time I got to this fifth book in the United Furry Coalition series…it was also a little old. Sadly, Langlais kept the series focused around one basic plot arc: The Mastermind (a crazy shifter scientist) has kidnapped and performed biological experiments on numerous shifters for personal reasons. The Mastermind was apprehended [in previous books] and now the F.U.C. has been spending their time mopping up the mess the Mastermind left behind: the failed experiments. These poor people not only have had their lives ruined by being kidnapped and experimented on, they also now have to deal with the failed results of what the Mastermind did to them.

While this plot arc has (and is, to an extent) been interesting…by the time I got to Doe and the Wolf the arc felt limiting. I just didn’t get as much out of this last book that I had in previous books: the characters weren’t as interesting, the jokes weren’t as funny, the plot didn’t really grab my attention as much and I wanted to see the F.U.C. agents spread their wings a bit and do something cool(er).

Even with the above reservations, Doe and the Wolf is a good read. I really liked Dawn and thought she was simply adorable. I wasn’t that fond of Everett or his partner, though. I also really liked parts of the ending – well, Dawn’s parts of the ending.

I’ve really enjoyed reading Eve Langlais’ United Furry Coalition and I hope that she continues with the series. In fact, I need to read book one (only one I haven’t read, lol). My only hope is that if Ms Langlais does continue with F.U.C. she gives the [characters] a different plot arc to focus on.
