Blurb: Jiri’s life has been one misery after the next. A cobra shifter, he’s held captive by a collector who keeps him—and other shifters—in a private harem-style “zoo” in the Libyan Desert. Considered a dangerous predator by the other shifters, and little more than a boy toy to the collector, Jiri is friendless, timid, and despondent.
Miksa is the collector’s latest find. But honey badgers are known for their bad attitude, fearlessness, and fighting spirit. Miksa has no doubt he’ll escape, even if it means taking the whole zoo down with him.
When honey badger and cobra meet, there should be instant enmity—after all, honey badgers eat cobras—yet both men find themselves oddly drawn to the other. Romance blossoms, but can it survive captivity and beyond? In order to do so, Jiri will have to find a strength he doesn’t know he possesses and Miksa will have to open a heart long closed to anyone except his immediate family.
Review: Jiri had been sold to a collector when he was just a child so he didn’t act like a cobra at all. He was there for dancing and sex. The collector has brought in a new find, and to Jiri’s surprise it is a honey badger. Honey badgers and snakes do not get along, but these two just about make you feel like you are over heated.
This was a bit strange to me and I wasn’t really sure if I liked it or not. I felt bad for Jiri though. I was glad that Miksa turned out to be a great catch for Jiri. I had fun reading this and look forward to seeing what other stories this author has out.
I would definitely recommend this story.
