This was a quick short read and I enjoyed it. It was one that I randomly picked up while looking for more books in the shifter genre. I’m glad I did.
Even with it being a short story, I feel that I got to know the characters a bit. There was a good balance of character description and the events that took place. There was well-written sex scene in there that added some heat to an already good story. The author was somehow able to get that in there and some regular plot without either element feeling too short. I’m a little surprised by that, for this length. I went into the story thinking the sex would take up a majority of the spotlight.
What I didn’t know until I finished the story, is that this is a short that takes place after a novel where the two main characters first get together. There was enough backstory here for me to get the feeling there was more to it and also that info was enough to help me understand the characters without bogging me down with info. (If I’d read the blurb provided at the beginning of the ebook, I’d have found out this is a continuation from a novel. It’s a different blurb from the one online, but I skipped it thinking I’d read it already. So, that’s partially my bad.) I think this was just fine to read as a standalone story, but I am intrigued enough to consider reading the novel that came before it. The author has definitely grabbed my attention.
