We met Heller as the human-hating Beta in book one. He redeemed himself by saving Dolf’s mate Kirk in the end, but boy – we sure didn’t get a good vibe from Heller at the beginning. He continues this vibe in book two by being vain and then shunning his mate for being human right off the bat. We know he has some hidden depths – he hints at a tortured past involving human misdeeds – but we don’t know for sure what’s happened.
Then we meet the mate – Lawson. Lawson is a human who’s been living with a paranormal family for the last decade. So he’s not too freaked out by the whole “shifts into a cat” thing. But he is very hurt by the rejection he feels from Heller, especially when he learns they are mates.
It takes a bit of time and talking, but eventually our mates get together. There is some serious drama still going on in their lives, however. There is a werewolf stalking Lawson and that pushes him into Heller’s arms and house in a big way.
We get a lovely HEA for our guys and a look into the next book as two others meet their mates.
MA Church’s writing is funny and fluid and very creative. Her shifters are animals and humans (which I love!) and so there is lots of purring, mewling, growling and even trilling in this book – blurring the lines between cat and human.
Heller was tough to love at first – but he quickly redeems himself and there isn’t a lot of time stuck in the land of “big misunderstanding”. Our guys talk and clear the air. Most of the drama isn’t about their mating in the second half of the book – but instead surrounds the evil werewolf.
Church introduces some new paranormals – Vetalas. These guys are cool! I’m really excited about learning more about them in the coming books.
I also like that we got to see a bit of our guys from book one again – that’s always nice. It’s definitely a stand-alone, you could understand everything without having read book one, but it gives the story a little more depth.
I highly recommend this book to fans of shifter romances!
I’m so pleased with the narrator change! Sometimes a series NEEDS the same narrator for the entire collection, however, I was pleased to see that we get Derrick this time and he’s SO GOOD! He gives enough distinction to the characters that we know who is speaking and I particularly liked Marshell’s accent (I hope he does the next book in the series!). He’s very good at the emotion and smexy times and all the meowing! LOL That was pretty hysterical! I definitely found myself immersed in this narration and think this is a great way to experience this book.
5 of 5 stars for both the narration and the story
