This was a really great Shifter story. First of all, it avoided the “magical hunk/hottie” troupe. The main Male protagonist, Brennon, 🤤🤤🤤, is a Native and a hawk shifter. He and his friend, Max, a wolf shifter (not a werewolf) , are sent on a mission to find out what experiments a mad scientist is up to. They find a lab and within it, a beautiful African American woman is being held against her will. From the moment Mikki’s eyes meet Brennon’s, he knows that he can’t live without her. She feels the same way but can’t figure out why🤔🤔🤔… The attraction is there but that’s not the only thing the story has to offer.
Featuring a strong plot within a short story, we followed a strong woman as she journeyed to find out exactly what happened to her at that lab, with love of her life at her side. Brennon and Mikki’s romance moves quickly, fueled by her newfound senses and his heavily bridled (he doesn’t want to scare her) passion. If you’ve read the first book, In His Sights, then they’ll be some delightful ‘closure’ elements that you’ll be sure to enjoy. An overall good read, I loved that science ruled so much of it and not magic. The only draw backs for this book are that there is ‘language’ through out (but not gratuitously so) and 3 love scenes. If you just enjoy romance and not love scenes, (like us), the author was kind enough to place them all towards end so they are easily skippable without missing key parts of the story.
