Publisher's Summary

Dev is a football player at Forester University, a small liberal arts college where he and his teammates get to strut around and have their pick of the girls on Friday nights. That's as good as it gets - until he meets Lee, a fox with a quick wit and an attractive body.
Problem is, Lee's not a girl. He's a gay fox, an activist who never dreamed he'd fall for a football player. As their attraction deepens into romance, it's hard enough for them to handle each other, let alone their inquisitive friends, family, and co-workers. And if school is bad, the hyper- masculine world of professional sports that awaits Dev after graduation will be a hundred times worse.
Going it alone would make everything easier. If only they could stop fighting long enough to break up.
Kyell Gold's fourth novel is a story of relationships, of finding oneself and learning to live with someone else, set in the contemporary fantasy world that was the setting for his acclaimed novel Waterways: joint Winner of the 2009 Rainbow Award for Best Gay Novel; Winner of the 2009 Ursa Major Award for Best Novel.

Don't be put off by the cover art

While the editing and narration were slightly off (someone needs to tell the narrator how to pronounce Penelope), this is one of the best gay romance books I've listened to. Characters are subtle and well rounded. The dialog is some of the best I've ever read.

If you are a fan of gay romance, buy this book. I'm not a furry - so my enjoyment of the characters is purely based on the character development and story.

Yeah, no furries for me thank you

OMG, where do I start. First of all, the novelty of this book having animals instead of people wears off fast. Despite the references to paws, fur, tails and muzzles (better not to dwell on how kissing with tongue works with muzzles); it is basically a MM romance, complete with a lot of sex scenes Unfortunately it is not a very good MM romance and the narrator has a really annoying lisp that makes his “s” sound like “th”. In addition, he rushes and mumbles through dialogue in some places to the extent that he runs out of breath by the end. His narration is really distracting. I kept wanting to tell him to “breathe and slow down.” Most of the time he was fine, but then he would ramble through something. Weird.

With that said, at the heart, this book is a romance between a wanna be gay rights activist college student (a fox) that also loves football and a “gay for you” college football player ( a tiger). Not an original concept, but OK. Aside from the narrator’s rushing and mumbling, the basic problem with this book is I really didn’t relate or like the couple. Dev (the tiger) is an in the closet "bi" (I guess) who professes to love Lee which still keeping their relationship in the closet, sometimes literally. Lee (the fox), who dresses in women's clothes to "protect" Dev's reputation, (after "tricking" Dev into sleeping with him, yeah really!!) was annoying in his acceptance of this role and status through most of the book. After a while, I didn’t really care if they got together or not. I’m sure this is just a personal preference, which is why I gave it 3 stars; other people apparently really like this series. But in my opinion, not worth a credit.
