There's Something About Werewolves (Seven Brides for Seven Shifters #1) by Thalia Eames

Their second chance ignites with a bite.

Lennox Averdeen’s top three worst fears:

1. Anything remotely canine.

2. Finding out she has a secret baby.

3. Running into Garrett Anderson. Former best friend. Heartbreaker.

She pulls a trifecta when she realizes the stray canine and the tween kid hanging around her house are not only one and the same, he’s Garrett’s wolf shifter son.

When Garrett tracks down his runaway son and sees Lennox again, the widowed father’s heart begins to struggle against his self-imposed chains. Plus, just coming into town pits him against the local Alpha, and everything he hates about pack life. The death, the heartache.

Despite her fears, Lennox becomes the boy’s mother in all but DNA. But Garrett? He can hula-hoop with the nine rings of hell. Except the heat of attraction has never died, and there’s only one way to slake their sexual thirst. Make a smoking-hot deal, agree to part as friends…and try to ignore the sound of Fate howling with laughter.

Warning: This book will stop your heart with barks of laughter, breathless drama, dueling heroes, and sizzling sex. Hey, if you can’t beat ’em, howl with ’em.

My review:
I have conflicted feelings about this story.  There were parts I loved and parts I absolutely disliked and very little in between. 
Lennox Averdeen is a bit naïve but likeable enough when she isn’t vacillating between her old boyfriend and the guy who has been chasing her since she was 12.    
Garrett Anderson was Lennox’s best friend in college until he broke her heart by marrying another. His wife has died and he is convinced he can only love once but now that he has reconnected with Lennox he doesn’t want to want her yet he doesn’t want he to be with anyone else.
Ian is Lennox’s neighbor and has loved her since she was a kid but has always had to play second to Garrett and/or the memory of Garrett.
Nox is Garretts son and Lennox’s Godchild.  She instantly falls for the boy but even he isn’t enough of a reason to put up with Garretts push me pull you routine.
Gran, Cash, Jules, Dillion, Paulo and Sherriff Stan the exterminator are the side characters that make this story worth reading.  They provide comic relief and honestly save the story.
This is the first in the series and I liked it enough to give the second book a try since I assume it will be about one of the secondary characters and I loved them.
