This is the second novel of the series and I highly recommend reading the other book first. Wow well I just got lost in their world once again my eyes were glued to the pages, I felt like I was right there along side the character’s. What really made this story come to life and really jump of the pages was the well written character’s. This story is filled with action and you will find yourself eager to turn the pages as you just can’t wait to know what’s going to happen next!
I give Dinner with The Wolf (Misfits & Rogues Series Book 2) by Kimberly Forrest, 4 stars.
Vampire Vivian is on the run. She did something that could have her maker serving out severe punishment. So she leaves. But she doesn’t realize just how good she had it. An actress before she was turned, she always believed she should be treated like a star. She didn’t realize how good she had it at Greenlawn Hall. Now she’s stuck and ready to admit she was wrong. But she wasn’t expecting the angry man who came to her rescue…..
Jules, an immortal wolf shifter, is put to the task of fetching Vivian and bringing her back. He is not looking forward to spending time alone with this spoiled brat of a vampire — he already has enough trouble with his inner wolf. But this journey is like nothing either of them expected. They each learn that maybe there is more to them than they ever thought possible. Maybe things actually are better than seem. And just maybe there is hope after all.
This is the first book I have read from this author and I didn’t know what to expect. To be honest, Vivian was quite annoying in the beginning but that is the point. She grows so throughout the book. Jules just exists and we learn why as the book goes on. But this is not just about these two. There is quite a bit of action as the book goes on. Not to mention the secondary characters are great too. I cannot wait to learn more about them in other books in the series.
If you like your paranormal romance with some action thrown in, this book is for you.

Dinner with The Wolf by Kimberly Forrest is the second book in the Misfits & Rogues series. I would recommend reading the first book in the series first because there is some background I’m sure will help with this book. I read this book first and enjoyed it but felt like I was missing something. Overall, I really enjoyed this story and look forward to catching more in this series. The main characters Vivian, a vampire, and Jules, a were-shifter do not see eye to eye. Jules is not happy that he is sent to fetch Vivian and bring her back home.
I think their personalities are good because they are different. He is an alpha, but not overbearing and she is a bit petulant. I really enjoyed this and I think there is a lot further for this series to go. I am going to grab book 1 and get ready for a thrilling ride.
Review by @sherimichelle1
This is book two in a series and starts where book one left off. Instead of feeling lost and fumbling around for a few chapters I decided to look back at book one’s reviews to get a feel for what was going on.
This a paranormal series and DINNER WITH THE WOLF explores morality and friendship while maintaining life and sanity.
The characters are strong, the story flows easily and it is an easy story to read. I will continue with this series.

Dinner with The Wolf is the second novel in the Misfits and Rogues series by Kimberly Forrest. This is my first novel by this author.
Taking place after the first book,which follows Vivian after she has made a contract with Thane to not lose her beauty. She is an actress but she didn’t read the fine print and would be in Thane’s debt for 200 years.
Knowing that Thane will kill her after what she did, she runs and in this book she tries to keep a low profile in order to not be found. Jules Kincaid, who doesn’t like her, is tasked with bringing her back, something he doesn’t want to do. Jules is also having trouble with his wolf, and slowing starting to lose his sanity.
Will these two continue to argue and hate each other or is it just cover for their attraction to each other?
It has been some time since I was able to read a paranormal romance novel and there were a few elements I enjoyed. One, being enemies to lovers. No matter how many times I read it, I never get tired of it.
I will admit this was the first time I was not very fond of the female protagonist. She was self centered and just came off vain. Over time, she was more likeable and her character began to develop more.
Overall, I recommend this novel and I look forward to reading the next time.
Dinner with the Wolf is the second book in the series of Misfits & Rogues by Kimberly Forrest. This book cover caught my eye and I was like I have to read this book. I am grateful for trusting my instincts and read this book. Kimberly Forrest does an excellent job of grabbing my attention and keeping it through the entire book. This story is about Vivian Page and Jules Kincaid. Vivian is running from her sanctuary to escape punishment. Then there is Jules Kincaid who is dying inside and does not want to go and get the spoiled little vampire he cannot stand. Vivian and Jules were not friends, one could even say that they are enemies. Will Jules find Vivian to take her back? Will the two who would be enemies save one another on this journey they were forced to do?
So, this is the second book in the series, I was not aware of that when I started reading it and usually I would be lost, but this was perfectly laid out so that I didn’t feel lost. Everything made sense to me, so I applaud the author for a seamless beginning. The characters were the perfect example of this genre and I appreciated that as well. This is a great example of the paranormal romance story, it was full of emotion, action, and just the right amount of danger. It showed that this genre has heart and as always is entertaining. I opened this book and I was instantly enthralled, I could not stop reading it and I think it will be the same for anyone who picks it up.
Dinner With The Wolf by Kimberly Forrest
Misfits & Rogues Series Book 2
My rating: 5 stars
I really liked this book. I love when there is a mix of vampire and werewolf because, why not? The drama, romance and danger left me very satisfied with how this story turned out.
Jules is a wolf shifter. He is destined to live his immortality fighting his wolf. Little by little he is going insane and to add on top of that mess, he has to hunt down Vivian who is on the run. Vivian is a former actress who made a deal with a vampire to be beautiful forever and now she is on the run from her sanctuary. Both characters initially hate one another but slowly we see the attraction coming from both of them. Most people may hate Vivian at first but I could kind of understand her and thought she was a very well written character. Jules and Vivian’s budding relationship was awesome to watch unfold.
I highly recommend this book, it can be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading it as a series. I can’t wait to see what the next installment has to offer.
Dinner with The Wolf is the second book in Kimberly Forrest’s Misfits & Rogues series. It follows Vivian, a vampire who has run away from the community she lived in after a mistake left her fearing the punishment she was due. Jules, an immortal wolf shifter, is identified as the best person to go and retrieve Vivian despite the historic tensions between the pair.
It’s an exciting, action-packed book with a well-established urban fantasy setting. I haven’t read the first book in the series and found it easy enough to follow and enjoy the story, but I’m adding that to my tbr list now as I enjoyed Dinner with The Wolf!
I particularly enjoyed the juxtaposition of Vivian and Jules’ attitudes towards immortality. Vivian chose to pursue immortality, whilst Jules received it involuntarily. This leads to some interesting conversations about the price of immortality.
I also liked how the Greenlawn community features a variety of supernatural creatures, and the dynamics between them. It was good to see how they came together when a member of their community, like Vivian, was at risk.
For me, this is a five star book. I love a good urban fantasy and Dinner with The Wolf is detailed without being over complicated. I’d recommend it to fans of vampires and werewolves who like well developed characters and settings.
Dinner with the Wolf by Kimberly Forrest is the second book in the Misfits and Rogues series. This book can be read as a stand-alone although I do feel you would benefit from reading the other book first.
I enjoyed the overall story of this book although I personally struggled to connect with the characters. It seemed to take me a little longer to become invested in them than normal. However the book had a great flow to it and I thought the author kept it interesting and varied.
I liked the combination of the different types of characters. Crossovers like this are hard to pull off but I thought the author handled it well.
As a new author to me this book has certainly piqued my interest and I can’t wait to check out more.
