Stephanie Beck's Unraveling Midnight introduces us to Scott and Lucy. Scott has a wee bit of an issue in that he can turn furry. But, as a single dad, he's gotta do, what he's gotta do... And that includes knitting classes for his daughter. There is a spark between Scott and Lucy but both are gun-shy about jumping on that spark. When Scott is injured in an accident, Lucy volunteers to help with the kids. After she spends more time with Scott, she finds out his secret and finds that there are some things that last a lifetime.
I really like Beck's voice. I've read her other works and enjoyed them immensely. This book was no different. I like that Scott and Lucy are both wary but still come together.
An entanglement with a werewolf brings unexpected turns.
Scott, a lone werewolf expelled from his pack, bends over backward to give his kids everything he can - including knitting lessons for his daughter. Learning to knit becomes much more appealing with Lucy Jamieson as the teacher. His heightened senses tell him the compassionate and beautiful human might be what he and his little band need, yet getting involved with Lucy means exposing her to his paranormal reality.
Although Lucy's childhood skewed her expectations of family, she recognizes and respects Scott's desire to protect and provide for his kids. When Scott is hit by a truck, Lucy offers to help with the kids--and gets more than she bargained for after learning Scott's true nature.
