Series Review: The Wolf Hotel (Nina West)

Today, I have a series review for The Wolf Hotel by Nina West (AKA: K.A. Tucker).


Rating: ★★★★

So I have to be honest. I hadn’t heard of Nina West or this series until a friend clued me in that K.A. Tucker wrote under a pseudonym. Normally this series isn’t something I would review, but I love Tucker’s other books so I wanted to give it a try.

The Wolf Hotel series is WAY sexier than anything I’ve ever read by Tucker before. It reminds me of some of those popular erotic romances with an innocent college girl and an older, millionaire hero. I guess you could say it’s kind of trope-y in that way. The story felt fresh and new to me, though. I actually really loved most of the storyline.

Abby was a fun heroine. She was so sheltered and out of her element for most of the series. I loved how her character grew a backbone and sense of self. She made some questionable choices that at times enraged me, but I understood her mistakes. There was a lot going on emotionally for her and it felt true to her age.

Henry was a hard guy to always love. We don’t get his POV, so I just had to believe he was going to be worth all the trouble. I think he did a pretty good job proving himself. I found his willingness to let Abby learn about herself and his spurring her on to believe in herself really cool. I liked his surprisingly supportive nature.

There was so much going on between the relationship between Abby and Henry and the plots, that I don’t even know what to say. This series took me on a trip. I especially loved the moments in Alaska at the Wolf Hotel. There were actually a couple other characters I ended up loving more than I thought I would in this series, too. Ronan especially. He proved himself to be a great guy.

If you’re looking for a sexier read that might push your boundaries, this series might be for you. Just be prepared for a lot more than you’re used to from K.A. Tucker as Nina West.

  1. I didn’t know KA Tucker wrote under a different pen name. I just looked her up on Goodreads and she has quite a few titles. These ones are probably not for me, though. I’m glad you found a new series to enjoy, though!

  2. Woah, I had no clue she wrote under a different name! This definitely reminds me of those earlier erotic fiction novels and I’m not really sure that I’m a fan of the innocent girl + millionaire playboy trope… But I’m definitely intrigued because it’s K.A. Tucker! I think I might just need to keep an eye out for this one…

    1. Yep. I would say the same. I’m not normally a fan, but her writing is so much better than those earlier writers… Let me know what you think!

  3. I’m keeping this one in my KU folder for the time when I’ll be signing up again.
