The Werewolf Upstairs by Ashlyn Chase (Book Review)

Title: The Werewolf Upstairs
Author: Ashlyn Chase
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca

My synopsis: This is the second book by Ashlyn Chase involving the residents of a Boston apartment building inhabited by mostly paranormals.  I first met them in Strange Neighbors.  In this book, Roz Wells (cute pun), a lawyer, moves into the building to be close to her best friend Merry.  She knows that Merry's husband is a shapeshifter, but doesn't know about the other residents.  She meets Konrad Wolfensen waiting for her moving truck and sparks fly.

Before long Konrad and Roz are an item, but Konrad has yet to confess to Roz that he is a werewolf.  He knows that Roz is supposed to be his mate, as they have a weird telepathic link, but doesn't know how she will react to his true identity.  Together they decide that they both would like new careers, so they set off to try to find their "bliss" in a new job.  They share some hilarious as well as harrowing mishaps together on this journey. 

Morgaine, one of their neighbors, trying to pump up her income as well, has accepted a job with the police department, trying to get information out of a ghost at a local museum that had a theft 20 years earlier. She has the ability to communicate with ghosts. Konrad goes along as a witness and for some reason the ghost takes a dislike to him.  He tries to set Konrad up for the theft.  Will Roz be able to prove him innocent? Or will he have to figure out a way to "change" while in jail?

This was another humorous book and while you don't have to read Strange Neighbors first, I found it helpful to know some of the other characters before reading this one.  Warning though - there are some pretty explicit sex scenes.

~I received a complimentary copy of this book from Sourcebooks in exchange for my review.~
