Chandra had a bad feeling when a gorgeous man walked into the leather store where she works in Tysonís Corner. He made the hair on the back of her neck stand up and gave her a bad vibe. She just wanted him out of her store and fast, she knew she probably couldnít take him in a fight but she didnít want to find out either.

Once again Chandra runs into Zach when she is almost to her car. Of course, he shows up when three people surround her and it is Zach that saves her. Sliding into the car with her, he is there one minute talking to her and when he is done, he leaves. Making her wonder what is going on in her life.

Since her twenty-first birthday a couple weeks ago, her body and life had been turned upside down. Her senses were stronger; the smells were just intensified and letís not forget about her metabolism that was way out of whack. She didnít know what was happening but Zach seemed to have the answers. And letís not forget her midnight visitor. Just who was he and what did he want and how did he hear her when she had a nightmare?

Chandra was adopted and didnít know anything about her birth parents and it left her with some abandonment issues. These issues rear its ugly head when she finds out who and what she really is. She isnít sure she can handle what is to take place with the men, twelve gorgeous men, that are now in her life.

She is to make a decision and isnít sure she can make one without hurting Zach and David. Can she make the right decision that will leave everyone happy? Or what happens when the people from the attack near her car show up?

The attraction between Chandra, Zach and David is there from the start, she feels safe with them even when they set her nerves on edge. They are there to take care of her and to see to her needs, and hopefully keep her out of too much trouble. It seems trouble follows her or she doesnít think things through and that gets her into problems.

Ms. Teglia does a wonderful job of drawing the reader into Animal Attraction from the very beginning. One word of caution, donít start this book before you go to bed and think you will be able to put it down and go to sleep. It didnít happen to me and I was up most of the night finishing the story. The characters, all of them, were unique in their own way and each brought an element to the story. There are several of the men that I would like to see have their own story. The scenes were well described and in details, believe me you wonít forget the day of the full moon anytime soon.

Animal Attraction is one story not to be missed whether or not like you to read about werewolves, it has real life issues that are dealt with. The sex is hot and doesnít leave much for us to imagine it is there for us to see. I canít wait for Ms. Tegliaís next story.
