Blurb: Humane Officer Derek Williams has been toying with the idea of asking out Brian O’Donogue since the veterinarian started working at the Pet Rescue Center two years ago. So why hasn’t he made his move? It’s complicated… but it has something to do with the fact that Derek occasionally likes to run around on four legs instead of two.
Recovering from an abusive relationship and hiding supernatural abilities of his own, Brian takes a chance and agrees to go on a date with Derek. The ensuing relationship is better than either of them could have hoped—until a rogue wolf shifter attacks Brian while he’s walking his dogs. The abrupt attack forces Derek to confront his feelings, but the danger isn’t over. The rogue shifter is out there, and he’s hunting them.
Review: I found this book a refreshing change from other books in this Genre, Derek Williams and Brian O’Donogue have worked side by side for two years both of them secretly wanting the other, neither has dared as they both have secrets. Both these men love animals dearly with Derek rescuing them and feeling anger and pain at the cruelty of humans to the defenseless animals. Wishing that he could treat the humans who did the cruelty, the same as they treated the animals. Brian handling them with love, care and gentle hands as he treats them.
You can see the great respect that these two men have for each other and how it has built up over time into love. These two men seem to be perfect for each other and I’d have to say that this is a genuine romance with a little bit of danger thrown in.
If you want a shifter story where it’s not insta mates, insta love and insta sex then this is the book for you, it has a good solid storyline throughout (although I would have liked to know why the rogue’s scent was familiar to Derek) and the sex is hot.
I genuinely liked this book and would recommend it to all my friends.
