    About "Bru Baker"

    1. Bru Baker

      Bru Baker got her first taste of life as a writer at the tender age of four when she started publishing a weekly newspaper for her family What they called nosiness she called a nose for news, and no one was surprised when she ended up with degrees in journalism and political science and started a career in journalism.Bru spent fifteen years writing for newspapers before making the jump to fiction She now works in reference and readers advisory in a Midwestern library, though she still finds it hard to believe someone s willing to pay her to talk about books all day Most evenings you can find her curled up with a mug of tea, some fuzzy socks, and a book or her laptop Whether it s creating her own characters or getting caught up in someone else s, there s no denying that Bru is happiest when she s engrossed in a story She and her husband have two children, which means a lot of her books get written from the sidelines of various sports practices.

    1. Tag Team Review with Sara 3.5 HEARTS Camp H.O.W.L by Bru Baker is a perfect addition to the Dreamspun Beyond line It s sweet, low angst and gentle in the romance department.In this world, werewolves are hidden in plain sight from humans Werewolves can shift into wolves once they ve reached their second puberty at 19 years old and will Turn into a werewolf There are a few genetic anomalies that can t shift once they ve reached their 19th birthday they are essentially human Such is the case for Ad [...]


    2. This could have been better And it started out so promising Every 19 year old werewolf will turn for the first time with the first moon after their 19th birthday Well, except for Adrian As the son of a very powerful Alpha, he feels like he disappointed his mother But 7 years later he has accepted that he is and will always be human So when he gets flu like symptoms he is not thing about turning at all But when he faints in the middle of the street and ends up in the hospital he recognizes the sy [...]


    3. 3.5 starsAdrian Rothschild missed his first Turn age, and he has lived the past eight years living as a human despite being a son of an Alpha wolf When Adrian goes through his first shift, at the ripe age of twenty seven, away from his Pack, the staff from Camp H.O.W.L takes him to help with the transition.Among them is Dr Tate Lewis, one of the guidance counselors, who has his own past and prefers to stay at the Camp Then both men realized that not only Adrian s shift is an unusual situation, t [...]


    4. This SOUNDS interesting, but it stops there o Holy crap, nothing happens here absolutely nothing This book is quite literally about these two MCs trying to resist THEN understand THEN accept their True Bond Moonmate Bond The steam rating on this thing is ZERO and whatever nonsense does happen with these two which is practically nothing felt contrived and clinical rolls eyeballs Toward the end they jerk each other off and when they orgasm, they re shocked by how good it felt and gasp about how it [...]


    5. 4 HeartsTag team Review withSRAL Adrian Rothschild turned twenty seven yesterday Before last night, he had never exhibited any signs of the Turn His Pack had accepted the fact that he was human until now.This was a fun and refreshing take on the werewolf trope.We meet Adrian on his 27th birthday that he is being forced to celebrate For Adrian, it s a pretty melancholy day as it s a reminder that he never had his Turn into a wolf during his second puberty on his 19th birthday With his mother bein [...]


    6. Updated for audiobook review Read Elizabeth s audio review in its entirety here.A Joyfully Jay review 3.75 starsCamp H.O.W.L is both original and traditional in its approach to the werewolf genre There are fated mates and moonlit shifts to be sure, but the idea of having a special camp for angsty teen wolves is clever and amusing It s hard enough to be a teenager, but when you add the concept of a first shifting experience to that same situation, things get crazy The author does a good job of se [...]


    7. Rounded up to 3.5 Blurb sums up the premise of the story quite accurately, so I won t rehash This was an enjoyable, slightly different take on the Mate aspect in paranormal werewolf shifter stories with the idea of Moonmates That for some wolves, there might be a perfect complement somewhere in the world It s a special, rare bond, that every other werewolf couple seems to have There we have my first tiny complaint this Moonmate is legendary, rare, and unusual, yet I think there were at least thr [...]


    8. I continue to be super excited about Dreamspinner Press s latest house line Dreamspun Beyond which are stories of a paranormal bent in the old school Harlequin and Silhouette models The description for Camp H.O.W.L pulled me right in I loved the idea of werewolves going to camp to learn to control their shifts to prevent accidentally outing themselves to humans and since Bru Baker is a new to me author I was than ready to jump into the worldbuilding In this world, wolflings turn the first time [...]


    9. Full review available at optimumm 2017 11 01 reviI loved Camp H.O.W.L by Bru Baker It s the seventh book in the Dreamspun Beyond series It s a standalone book The story is well written, nicely developed, and has interesting characters This is the first time that I have read a book by this author, but it won t be the last because it was awesome This story is a very slow burn which slightly surprised me since Adrian and Tate are moonmates think fated mates But Tate has come from an abusive past an [...]


    10. All wolves know finding your moonmate is almost impossible, but sometimes that is the easy part Adrian Rothschild never expected to hit his puberty at the ripe age of twenty eight but somehow it happens After spending the last ten years believing he was a failure, his late puberty turns him into a chaotic mess of feelings And the only one who seems to calm him is Tate Lewis His wolf has bonded with the sexy monitor, but although Tate reciprocates, he is reluctant to act on it Tate is an oddity i [...]


    11. I read this book in one setting and I loved it.Tate was a bit of a character that was hard for me to like He was scared of committing and with his past this was understandable but went on to long The world the author created was wonderful I loved it The different take on the shifter dynamic and rules were so different and fresh from the usual way it is portrayed in books and film This is the first time I have read a book from this author and I can t wait to read another This book definitely earn [...]


    12. I was intrigued by the blurb and enjoyed the leading up to the MCs first shift in the midst of unsuspecting human society setting But when the MC is enrolled in the camp, the story turned into a disappointment I m not a fan of early acknowledgment of mutual love between MCs, and have them still resisting being together unless there is a good reason in the story to continue to keep them apart In this book any credible reason why they shouldn t happily enter into a relationship was sorely lacking, [...]


    13. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.3.5 rounded downOne of the things I really enjoyed about this story was how original the idea of a camp to teach young werewolves how to control their shifts was And how it was different for Adrian because he didn t have his Turn at 19 like all the other wolves, his came 8 years later So he s away from home, isolated from his pack, thinking he s not a true part of them when he collapses.In order to preserve the sanctity of their way of life, sec [...]



    14. Good writers can take a trope and make it their own, make it original TJ Klune took the werewolf trope and made it his own in Wolfsong Now, Bru Baker did the same thing with Camp H.O.W.L It s still a werewolf story with some of the standard elements but there s also originality, a sense of a new way to deal with those elements It makes what could have been a standard story into an original story I particularly liked the whole second puberty aspect This feels like such a great analogy that I m am [...]


    15. Camp H.O.W.L Bru BakerDISCLAIMER I recieved an advance copy of this book for the express purpose of writing a review.One of the things I like about the shifter sub genre is that each author is allowed to put their own spin on things When how one gets the ability to shift, how the shift itself happens, and other such like rules are something each story teller gets to decide In this incarnation, werewolves are born with the ability, but it does not manifest until the first full moon after their 19 [...]


    16. Full disclosure right up front I haven t read very many shifter stories Like, very few But, I decided to challenge myself to read outside my normal box when I saw Bru Baker s Camp H.O.W.L pop up on the radar Having liked Baker s books in the past, and being super intrigued by the premise laid out in the blurb which was extremely well written I had to go for it The thing about not having read much in the shifter realm, though, is that there could be things in this book that are so well done or mi [...]


    17. Although I am a regular reader of the Dreamspun Dreamspinner collection, I had not yet taken the time to test their new Dreamspun Beyond collection But when I came across the last one, CAMP H.O.W.L of Bru Baker, it was impossible for me not to read it I instantly liked the Cover and the summary charmed me.The story revolves around two characters, Adrian Rothschild and Tate Lewis, in a world where werewolves shift for the first time after their werewolf puberty when they are about 19 years old.Ad [...]


    18. I really enjoyed this story, with it s nontraditional werewolf bonds, and characters finding their chance at love.Adrian is a human amongst werewolves, and it has always been a sore point for him Though he loves his family and he knows they love him, his mother is a powerful alpha, and all of his siblings are well within the hierarchy of the pack With Adrian never turning, he always feels alone despite being surrounded by family and having success int he family business When he starts going thro [...]


    19. I received this book as an ARC in return for an honest review by the author Which is always much appreciated since I love ARCs and I love finding new authors to read.Alright, now that s out of the way, on to the honest part.I m really not sure what to make of the main characters Adrian seemed like a steady enough character and his motivations were something I could understand and connect with He s cut off from his pack and family and he s going through something he never thought he d ever experi [...]


    20. Reviewed for Rainbow Gold Reviews A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review This is only the second book I ve read by Bru Baker and the first Dreamspun Beyond book the series features paranormal characters in m m romance , but I know after reading Camp H.O.W.L I will be reading in this imprint and from this author Right away I was taken in by the Adrian and how he felt about not quite fitting in with his family He was born to werewolf parents and his mom is a leader among their peopl [...]


    21. Dual review with Ami at The Blogger Girls.4.5 starsI won t go into a recap of the story because Ami did a pretty good job of that What I will say is that I loved the way Ms Baker handled this one While Tate and Adrian are moonmates, it s not an insta love kinda story In fact, Tate fights the bond because he doesn t believe in moonmates so I liked that he wasn t too all awestruck with Adrian and subsequently turning this into a sex fest lol Tate, though, is a sweet slightly broken doctor He didn [...]


    22. 3.5 StarsWhen I read the premise of a camp to help young shifters learn to control their shifts, I had visions of Xavier s school for X Men and that was enough of a sell for me Camp H.O.W.L is sorta kinda like that, tucked in the middle of nowhere, hefty price tag, and a staff dedicated to helping new shifters acclimate It never expected one of those shifters to be a grown male, but then Adrian had long given up on ever having his Turn Something he should have done at 19 When it happens, he s wa [...]


    23. This was a nice balanced story Character development was strong throughout with both lead characters demonstrating clear and unique differences Their backgrounds were well articulated and understandable In addition they were likeable without the need for sentimentality The location provides the context for the story but does not form a major part of the plot It is the interaction between the characters that is the strongest element and it is this that drives the story forwards Secondary characte [...]


    24. 4 Stars A lovely heart warming tale of 2 people that don t fit in.Adrian 27, never turned, an outsider in his own packTate 32, instructor to young werewolfs, packlessAdrian somehow skipped his Turn at ages 19, leaving him an outsider to his family Although they accept him, things arn t the same that he is human He goes on a business trip over his birthday to try to get away from a celebration of a day he would rather forget During his time there, things start going wrong and strange things start [...]


    25. Wow this is one of those books that will completely blow you away when you read it It was so emotional on so many different fronts.Tate is so used to being alone He left his pack back after his first turn and never looked back He worked hard to become a councilor at Camp HOWL He lives working with the teens and helping him adjust to their first turn and help them learn control The last thing he ever expected to do was have to help an adult who is turning for the first time at a late stage in his [...]


    26. 3.5Refreshing Entry into the Werewolf Genre In this unique, slow burn fated mates story, Tate, a packless werewolf who has isolated himself in his psychologist counselor role at Camp H.O.W.L, is confronted by an unexpected and unwelcome bond to Adrian, whose loving upbringing and somewhat strained, but still deep ties with his pack are completely opposite to Tate s experience Unlike Tate, Adrian, while just as surprised and concerned about the complications a moonmate bond would create, is excit [...]


    27. ARC Review Camp H.O.W.L by Bru BakerI received an advanced copy of this title in exchange for an honest review I have to say honestly that I am disappointed I am disappointed in myself that this is the first title that I have read by this author and wondering why the heck I haven t read of this author s work That will change now as there are books I must now go back and read I would recommend Bru Baker as an auto buy for any fan of the M M genre.From the first moment you meet Tate and Adrian th [...]


    28. A nice story This is a fresh, intriguing take on the wolf shifter mate genre The premise of Camp H.O.W.L is original and interesting and I totally fell in love with Tate s confidence I felt like he was guiding and reassuring me along with Adrian through Adrian s special problem I had really high hopes for this story after the first angst filled chapter I expected a little action suspense or conflict I was surprised with a gentle love story instead Don t get me wrong the gentle love story was re [...]


    29. This was a great book Lighthearted, sweet and funny I have read many shifter stories, but Bru Baker managed to write one with a new and fresh take on the well known tales Tate is a counselor at Camp H.O.W.L to guide teenagers who are at the point of shifting Shifting is a life altering experience, and the teenagers need all the help they can get He never expected to meet his moonmate Yes, there is the mate trope, but it really is different from other shifter stories.Adrian always believed himsel [...]
