Review: Brazen by Kelley Armstrong

Brazen (Otherworld Stories #13.2)
Nick Sorrentino knows everyone in the supernatural world considers him the Pack’s playboy, the pretty but not very useful werewolf whose only reputation involves his amorous exploits.
Usually, Nick couldn’t care less what anyone outside the Pack thinks of him. But when it affects his hunt for Malcolm Danvers, a psychotic bogeyman from the Pack’s past, it matters.
Necessity forces Nick to team up with mercenary half-demon Vanessa Callas to run Malcolm to ground in Detroit. Together, they discover Malcolm is more deadly than ever. And he wants to play.
It’s time for Nick to prove he’s not just a lover. 

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

I cant find the words to describe how happy I am to have been able to delve back into Armstrong's Otherworld series, even if it was just a small journey. I love this series. Like really LOVE this series. So much that my heart broke when Armstrong announced it would end with Thirteen... and then the teeny tiny pieces started to fix back together when she said she would continue to write novellas. I could literally spend the rest of my life reading stories about the characters from this series. 
Nick Sorrentino is one of my favourite species. Werewolf, but Nick himself doesn't often get a lot of page time. For want of a better word he is a lesser character. Always in the background helping out but never really trusted to do anything by himself. Until now. And I loved every single minute of it. 
The Nick we find in this book, chasing after Malcolm is not the Nick we have come to expect from previous stories. Yes Nick is there to help in a fight, but he's not usually the seeking it out. 

I loved that we got to learn a little more about Malcolm and despite the fact that he isnt the nicest of wolves out there I do hope we get to see him more.. Especially after what happened to him in this one. 

As is usual of Armstrongs work, this book pulls you in, wraps its arms around you like a hug from an old friend and makes you feel part of the story. I bet you cant read this without your heart racing in the action parts.. and a few ahem other parts too.
