Blurb: Jimmy is a simple kind of man who lives in a low-rent apartment, works from home as an accountant, and has enough clothes that he could open his own store. What he doesn’t have is that special someone in his life. He’s so lonely that he frequents Grizzly’s just to get out of the house. But little does Jimmy know he has a secret admirer, one whose intentions could turn deadly.
Ethan has been interested in Jimmy from the moment he laid eyes on the little leopard. Getting with Jimmy wasn’t easy, but now that Ethan is in his life, he realizes Jimmy needs protection. Twice Jimmy’s apartment has been broken into, and Ethan isn’t taking chances on a third. But a killer is on the loose, leaving bodies all around Mercury. It’s up to the bounty hunters to find out who the killer is while Ethan races to save his mate’s life.
Review: Each book in the Mercury Rising collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Jimmy is a simple man who loves what he does. He is an accountant that works from home, not getting rich but who does these days. He is also a leopard shifter and the only thing he is missing is a mate.
Ethan has not only noticed Jimmy but wanted the little man. Thing do not go smoothly for these two but Ethan knows he can find away. To bad someone is trying to get his mate but it is not the same one killing the humans.
I had a bit harder time with this particular book. In all the others shifters and vampires knew their mates by scent, however in this book that is not the case. Or right off the bat anyway, they around each other and neither knows till a little later on. This story didn’t come off the way it should have and I couldn’t pin point the problem with it. It just felt a little harsher and didn’t flow the way it should have. That isn’t to say that it wasn’t a good book because I still got a kick out of it. I really got a kick out of Jimmy and his attitude.
I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to see what the next book has going on in it.
