From animosity to searing passion in a lunar cycle…but can their bond survive?
Wolf shifter Nathan Kohl’s pack is his whole life. Arrogant and handsome, he avoids commitment to anything or anyone outside of his pack. He works hard, plays hard, and pursues humans as lovers because there’s little to no chance of him forming a permanent bond. However, when Jared Taylor comes into Nathan’s life, every rule is broken.
After a bad experience, Jared vowed to never get involved with another shifter, no matter how much they got under his skin. Despite being physically attracted to Nathan, who’s all kinds of hot, Jared only sees an arrogant, domineering bastard.
A disastrous case of mistaken identity throws Nathan and Jared together until the next full moon. Forced to spend the next twenty-eight days in close proximity, they can no longer ignore the powerful attraction between them. Passion ignites, and their relationship takes a turn neither of them wanted.
But when the full moon comes, everything might change again.
The story – The premise of the shifter world started really well. I love any story that has a new twist on a favorite genre of mine. Basically biting humans to change them is illegal and can be a sentence of death, and this happening is the whole focus of the plot. The forced proximity plot on the whole was well handled with a few gross moments I would have been happier to gloss over, and some inconsistencies that weren’t resolved.
I loved that the author didn’t try and force all the backstory on us in one go, but at the same time some of the info was a little too convenient and sometimes lacking.
Having said that this is the start of a series so I’m expecting those questions will be explained in later books.
I liked the action sequences and the hot sex scenes, but I found myself waiting for the emotional attachment that never quite seemed to happen.
The narration – Antony Ferguson is a new to me narrator with a very smooth voice. I would have liked to see some more regional accents in the story. Taking place in London which is a hotbed for different nationalities, I expected a little more than I got. I also sometimes wanted to speed things up a little to get around his careful and sometimes very precise narration.
