Our Review:

Reviewed by Shirley ~ 4.5 stars

This delightful book starts with a bang and ends on a hot sizzle. It is about the strong sexual attraction which quickly forms between a human and a bear shifter who meet in very difficult circumstances.

Maria Hernandez is the P.A. for Senator Laura Davis. Maria works long and hard beside the Senator whom she likes and believes in very much. The Senator is a sparrow shifter and is a strong advocate for human-shifter equality but not everyone shares their views, especially an extremely volatile group who call themselves the Human Against Shifters.

It was through a confrontation with these people that Maria meets a certain, very sexy Detective, who also happens to be a bear shifter. When Maria actually takes notice of Detective Hale after everything settles down her first thought was Detective Tall, Dark, and Handsome but seeing she was anti men at this moment in time she has to keep telling herself she was NOT going to pursue this immediate attraction she is feeling towards him. The same mutual attraction was being felt by Levi. He was totally bowled over by her looks and curves and he thought she was absolutely gorgeous and she brought out his inner protectiveness to the fore big time and he knew he had to protect her at all costs.

The attraction between these two burns hot and spontaneous, taking them both by surprise. Even though they knew it was wrong to follow it through while they were both in the middle of an investigation they just couldn't help themselves. And when the first time they found themselves alone the temperature soared and it was like two magnets being pulled together.

“Before he could apply any rational thoughts to the situation, he was leaning in. She was warm and sweet beneath his mouth, and his hand moved up from her shoulder to cup her cheek and tilt her head so he could taste her more thoroughly.”

For a short story it packs a lot in it. There is violence and deceit which surrounds our two main characters, bringing them into dangerous situations which they bravely fight through but the hot, steamy lovemaking which neither of them can deny runs strong.

“It felt like they'd created their own little pocket of desire, here in this strange kitchen - their own world, a world that smelled like sex and want, this heated space between them that no one else would ever know.”

This is a book with a great story, passionate love scenes and has interesting characters which will keep the reader turning the pages. A really good and enjoyable read.
