When they were young together back in their werecat pride, Bowie and Channing experimented with love and sex, as well as flirting with a threesome with their best friend, Emma. Channing and Emma both ran from their needs, leaving Bowie to break away and find his own life. Now a confident master dominant, Bowie discovers Channing again through a video of a consummate sub, one who Bowie knows he needs to find once more.
When Bowie shows up on his doorstep, Channing feels like a teenager again, all confusion and need. He doesn’t date his own kind, only humans, and he’s not in the market for a full time master. Bowie is impossible to deny, a force of nature, and while both men know they’ll have to think about Emma eventually, now is the time to see if they can get to know, and love each other, all over again.
The trip was designed to give him time. Time to figure out what he was going to say to Channing Lanier when he saw the sorry son of a bitch again.
He could start with “Hey, you rat bastard. Amazing how you came out after you dropped me like a hot rock.” That would be fun. Or maybe, “I thought you weren’t into spanking and bondage, and your precious asshole was sacrosanct, but now you’re a bottom in the underground BDSM scene,” would work better.
Bowie wouldn’t even be going to see said bottoming asshole if it wasn’t for the flyer tucked neatly away in his briefcase.
Their Emma was a fucking stripper?
A Vegas stripper? The revue was touted as a classy burlesque show and topless nightclub called Catnip Crazy.
Hell, the crazy thing was that both of his ex-lovers had called him a goddamn perv.
Him. Because he’d wanted them both. Because he’d wanted Emma over his lap. Because he’d wanted to see Channing bound and on his knees between the both of them.
Texan to the bone and an unrepentant Daddy’s Girl, BA Tortuga spends her days with her basset hounds, getting tattooed, texting her sisters, and eating Mexican food. When she’s not doing that, she’s writing. She spends her days off watching rodeo, knitting and surfing porn sites in the name of research. BA’s personal saviors include her wife (still amazing to say that), Julia Talbot, her best friend, Sean Michael, and coffee. Lots of coffee. Really good coffee.
Having written everything from fist-fighting rednecks to hard-core cowboys to werewolves, BA does her damnedest to tell the stories of her heart, which was raised in Northeast Texas, but has gone to the high desert mountains and fallen in love. With books ranging from hard-hitting GLBT romance, to fiery menages, to the most traditional of love stories, BA refuses to be pigeon-holed by anyone but the voices in her head.

Review: Bowie is surprised to get a video and a picture of the two people who walked away from him when he confessed his needs to them, now years older he decides to go after what he wants and he chases down Channing. Channing works in catering and does sub demonstrations, having Bowie show back up in his life is daunting especially when he once derided Bowie for his Dom needs, now confronted by the powerful Dom Channing is shaking apart with nerves and need. Bowie is determined to claim his runaway mates and the first step is getting Channing under his firm hand.
This is a great shifter BDSM story where the Dom chases his sub down. When Bowie first admitted to Channing and Emma what he wanted both Channing and Emma left him. Although young Bowie knew that they were meant to be a triad but Channing couldn’t face what that meant and Emma left, now Channing embraces being a sub but being confronted by Bowie has him on edge. Bowie has to seduce Channing and show him he can give Channing what he needs but Channing isn’t sure even as he gives in to Bowie.
Both Channing and Bowie are cougar shifters and the characteristics of the big cats shine through in their human form so they are very touchy-feely. Bowie was young when he confessed his Dom needs to both Channing and Emma but Channing ran scared because it wasn’t until later that he accepted his own sub needs, Emma left deciding that she couldn’t make it work with just Bowie and that she wasn’t into kink but I think that might be a story for a later date.
There’s lots of want and need and some playful large cats, but the underlying want from both Bowie and Channing can’t be missed. Bowie is hurt, he was rejected because of his needs and he discovers Channing has now embraced the lifestyle, Channing wants Bowie but is scared. We see everything as Bowie brings his mate and sub under his hand and proves that it can work between them. This is a wonderful story where the wants and needs of the cats leaks through to the human side and where two people who love each other finally make it work.
I recommend this to those who love cat shifters, runaway subs, a Dom who wants his mate, some excellent spanking and a great ending.
