The Animal Under the Fur by E.J Mellow [Book Review]

The Animal Under the Fur by E.J Mellow

Release Date: March 30, 2017

Genre: Romance|New Adult|Suspense

From award-winning author E. J. Mellow comes an action romance dripping with vengeful delight.

Orphaned on the streets as a baby, Nashville Brown, a.k.a Kill Operative 3, knows better than to rely on anyone. With heightened senses and superhuman strength to survive, she’s been raised as the perfect assassin.

The trick to her success? Keeping everyone, even her best friend, at arm’s length.

Losing his entire family in the span of a year, Carter Smith left his ability to love buried deep in their graves. His only concerns now are completing his missions and effortlessly charming the next temptress to warm his bed.

The key to his accomplishments? Working alone mixed with a Casanova smile.

But when a deadly weapon needs to be stopped from falling into the wrong hands, the lone wolves find themselves thrown into an explosive partnership. Can Carter and 3 lower their guns aimed at one another long enough to succeed, or will their unwillingness to compromise end up destroying more than their perfect records? Whatever their differences, both agree on one thing—in the game of lies and deceit, the line between friend and foe is often blurred by blood splatter.

The Animal Under The Fur is a hate-to-loath-to-love standalone novel filled with savagery, secrets, and enough angst to wrinkle the pages you’ll find gripped in your hands.

“I want to thank E.J Mellow for giving me an ARC of TAUTF. this doesn’t affect nor influence my reviews.”

Once again E.J Mellow pulled off another New Adult novel. This one is action packed and to say that it is my type of genre too. After reading this I think my dad and brothers would want this minus the hot scenes. 😉 The plot is really good. The hate to love theme is there until the end actually and I like it. This book is just like the movies that I watch with the guys back home.

My prediction about being stuck in that particular scene and it will also end there is correct. But still the mystery and suspense is still there hanging in the air every time the chapter ends.The next chapters always making you think what would be the next one. The plot twist about Ramie is better than I though it would be. I just do hope there is something for Axel (never mind Ploom haha), Akoni the geeky guy (I like him because he’s into tech stuff) and Jules. How did the organizations knew about those special peoples existence. (Next installment or novella please 😀 )

I do know that my thoughts are scrambled as of writing. I can’t express it well enough. But hey guys the book is good. Not your typical NA story where the protagonist ends up with each other at the middle of the story immediately.



I like solving problems, catching bad guys, and trying to make this planet a better, safer place. If the price of that outcome is ending someone who never deserved to walk this earth in the first place, then that’s the cross I have to bear.

Feelings lead to loss, to hurt, and my ability to accept such things died a long time ago. Now I make a point to keep everything casual. Casual is safe. Casual doesn’t rip your heart out and force you to watch it be buried under six feet.

I know better than most how the smallest details of someone’s past can often be the most painful to share, the most important to keep for oneself.

A piece of me wants to believe she’s still nursing those wounds, but I’m not sure if it’s because I’m still nursing mine.

That’s something regular humans take for granted, being blessed with a quiet life. Because my life… has always been brutally loud.
