Reviews of the Wolf Smitten books:
Author Phoenix Johnson’s The Wolf in the Neighborhood is an exciting erotic paranormal romance.
Krissy has been living a free, happy life since leaving her cheating ex James. Suddenly, a new neighbor, Derek, moves in and immediately captures her heart. Trouble brews when James decides to reenter her life and reclaim his most prized possession. Krissy fears for Derek’s life, but he steps up to protect her in wolf form as her knight. However, a nice touch is the fact that Krissy also needs to take care of Derek. A very sweet moment!
Unfortunately, James will never let Krissy go. This leads the reader on an intense adventure of life and death as well as love and possible sacrifice. Will they be able to save each other?
Every woman deep down wishes for a knight to protect and rescue her. Derek is a perfect knight. And Krissy is a strong woman despite her need for someone to support her. She can stand up for herself.
Phoenix creates complex and interesting characters. She builds a sweet, passionate and deep relationship between Derek and Krissy, albeit a quick one. They are soulmates. Phoenix unveils the evil nature of James and his flunkies. And she adds some characters who still have heroic, decent hearts to help along the way.
Since this is an erotic novel, I must warn those under 18 years old to avoid it. The scenes were sizzling and tasteful. Phoenix composes beautiful, touching moments as we learn more of the characters’ pasts.
I enjoyed this story and recommend it to those who enjoy erotic paranormal romances. Phoenix gives the reader an unforgettable story!
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. The rating and opinions are solely mine.

Title: Leader of the Pack
Series: Wolf Smitten
Designation: Book Three of Series, NOT a Standalone
Author: Phoenix Johnson
My Rating: Five Super Sexy Stars*****
Leader of the Pack is the third and final instalment of The Wolf Smitten Series by new author, Phoenix Johnson. Her talent and imagination continue to shine brightly in this riveting continuation of Derek and Krissy's story. Johnson was a fledgling new author when I read her first published release, The Wolf in the Neighborhood. I was fortunate enough to have received a complimentary copy of her first published book in exchange for a review and I must say, I was surprised and impressed with her ability and unique style. A year later, I received a complimentary copy of the second book of the series, Once Bitten, Twice Shy in exchange for an honest review and again, I was impressed by her talent but I was even more amazed by the improvement in her skill and the quality of her work. I watched and waited for news of her next book and now, eleven months later, she has just released Leader of the Pack, the conclusion of the series and this one, I eagerly purchased myself. And Johnson did not disappoint. The book is exciting, imaginative, fast-paced, well-crafted and well edited. The narrative is extremely well written in the third person with alternating his and her points of view as told by our two protagonists. The dialogue is smart, well executed and flows beautifully. Throughout the series, the characters have been captivating, engaging, endearing, sexy and well developed. The story grabbed my attention immediately but the hero and heroine totally captured my heart. Johnson did a wonderful job of combining these elements into a deliciously sweet, seriously sexy and delightfully entertaining paranormal romance.
After a seven year failed relationship and the upsetting death of his Mother, handsome veterinarian Derek moves to New York City for a fresh start. On his second day in his new apartment he finds his beautiful new neighbor, Krissy, sunbathing on the roof - in the nude! Oh my! No one ever comes to the roof that early, so when she's caught without her clothes, she plays it cool. But Krissy is anything but cool. In fact, her new neighbor Derek is making her very hot indeed. Besides, it's been six months since her breakup with James and it would be so nice to meet a great guy. Sparks fly and heat flares instantly between the two. After a dangerous and harrowing experience with Krissy's ex-boyfriend, the couple think they are finally headed for smooth sailing - until Derek gets a call from Aubree, his ex-girlfriend from London and she's not in London - she's here at the airport and she wants him back and is willing to do anything to get him! What? But just how will Derek's wolf react to Aubree's unwanted advances?
We know in Book Two, Derek's dark secrets have been revealed and ghosts from his past have surfaced and are threatening not only his current life and happiness but also his future . After all these years, he has finally discovered how he became a wolf and the unexpected discovery may very well have placed everyone in even more danger. We also now know that his ex-girlfriend, Aubree, was unsuccessful in her scheme to
lure Derek back into her life. Fortunately, her devious seduction backfired and her twisted plan failed. But the betrayal almost cost Derek his relationship with Krissy who he now realizes is not only the love of his life but the mate his wolf has also chosen. Consequently, our two lovers become even closer and their relationship is strengthened but Derek now faces a dangerous and life altering decision. He is contacted by the scientist responsible for the experiment that changed him into a werewolf as a teenager and is offered the choice to destroy his wolf and possibly regain his humanity. Facing such a staggering decision, the couple decides to escape the city for a camping trip to the mountains for a much needed break which hopefully will give Derek the clarity he needs in order to make his choice but once again, danger awaits our two lovers in the forest. An unexpected attack leads to another crisis and now Krissy's life may be at risk. Will Krissy survive her injuries and if so, how will it affect her future with Derek? Will Derek finally learn to accept his life or will he choose to destroy his wolf, thereby possibly destroying himself in the process? Will Krissy lose her man...um...wolf or will they finally be able to find their happily-ever-after with each other? We'll see! Oh my! Exciting! Well Written! Smart! Compelling! Riveting! Suspenseful! Romantic! Sexy! Was there anything about this book I didn't like? Not really, although I did feel that the ending was a wee bit rushed. I would have loved for it to have been a little longer and more detailed. There was so much potential for further development of the story. Will I read this author again? Absolutely! Would I recommend this book to a friend? You bet! Great work Phoenix Johnson! I loved it!
Judy Lewis, Amazon Review

Phoenix Johnson has always been intrigued by the written word. Even when she was a young girl, she usually had her nose stuck in at least one book, and her need to read would drive her to peruse the back of the same cereal box each morning at breakfast. Paranormal and fantasy captured her heart, with tales about dragons, magic, and fanciful creatures sweeping her away to a wonderful new world where she felt she truly belonged. While she dabbled in writing while in primary school, it wasn't until high school that she decided she should try her hand at writing her own book, and even gave poetry a try.
She wandered away from writing for a few years, but was soon encouraged to return and, within months of picking up the proverbial pen, Phoenix' first story, The Wolf In The Neighborhood, was accepted for publication by Naughty Nights Press. While working on the rest of the Wolf Smitten Trilogy, Phoenix decided to take on a university degree, and is now in the final stretch of her Bachelor of Art's degree in Professional Writing and Publishing, with plans to continue on to her Master's degree.
In early 2015, Phoenix was thrilled to discover she'd made two Top 5 lists with three entries in the Easychair Bookstore Awards. In June, it was announced she had placed first in Best Paranormal with Once Bitten Twice Shy, the second installment in her Wolf Smitten Trilogy, while The Wolf In The Neighborhood and Wolf Smitten placed third in their respective categories of Best Paranormal and Best Series.
With her inclusion in the Alphas on the Prowl Box Set in 2015, Phoenix hit the top 100 bestsellers lists across numerous distributors, number 1 bestseller on several Amazon lists, and this was recently followed by the announcement of her achievement of number 1 bestseller for her publisher, Naughty Nights Press, for the entirety of 2015. The awards and achievements have only served to strengthen her ambitions, and she is now aiming at reaching the bestseller lists for USA Today and New York Times.
Phoenix has been working hard to make 2015 her year, and has been busy organizing paranormal anthology Twisted Tales with seven other authors. Its release at the end of June was greatly anticipated, and she is extremely excited to see where her writing career takes her next.
