Review: Each book in the Shifters and Lovers collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
I have not really read any books by this author but the first to this series. I was fascinated with the way the men just flow together. There were only a few problems I had with the story, but they are not major for me not to like the book.
The first one was the actual ending. It seems like it just drops off which didn’t hit me right. I felt that it could have continued to make it more enjoyable. Also the fact that they don’t have mates drives me nuts. Shifters should have mates to me.
Jordan left his pack after he was being forced to marry a woman. The man was as gay as could be, so no women for him. So now he protects others, but he had not expected to actually fall for the one he is assigned to now. However he felt it better to protect Rick from a stalker than get into bed with the man. Yeah, like that is going to last long.
Rick is an amazing actor, but now he has a stalker out for him. For an actor he is down to earth, but he takes one look at his bodyguard and damn did he want him. Too bad the man was fighting the attraction between them both. Looks like it was going to take a bit of work to get his man. That is if the stalker doesn’t get him first.
I had fun reading this and look forward to the next book. I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.
