I’ve seen her books everywhere but just never got around to reading any. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to read this one. It was a hoot!
So we have Everett, an in your face wolf shifter who thinks he’s top dog. At least until he finds himself sacked from his job. But this doesn’t stop him, no siree. He decides to start his own bounty hunting agency with his buddy, the sloth. I have to say, this is a very interesting combo for friends but it makes for interesting back and forth. Anyway, the same place he was fired from contacts him to help them bring in some mutant shifters that escaped their facility. Easy peasy right? Sure, until he encounters a giant, hulk version of a gecko. He finds himself hurt and being taken care of by a doe of all animals. Even though he knows she is the doe that is on the list of shifters, but he finds himself drawn to her and not in the predator/prey scenerio. Unless you count the sexual predator/prey scenario. ;)
Let’s not forget about our doe, Dawn. Usually does are pretty skittish but this one is different. Dawn is in hiding and has learned that she can’t be that skittish doe everyone expects her to be. Having to fend for herself has made her become a stronger willed person and I loved it. She took no one’s crap, even Everett’s. The two of them together were not only funny, but they seemed to be a natural, perfect fit that I never would have guessed.
There were also a couple previous characters that make their way into the book that I just loved! I wish there were such things as money trees so I could afford to go back and read this whole series. I love romances with some action and comedy thrown it. It makes it all the more enjoyable. :)(less)

I mean, how can you not love when she opens the book with Emma asking Nate why he doesn’t ask her to take her clothes off? I love how she can naturally add humor in her books and it doesn’t seem forced. It just works. And we have conflict. Can’t have a romance book without some conflict. We are women and like to read about things that we may have/are experiencing and see how it all plays out. There is a couple conflicts in the book, one being a bit of a doozy but awesome at the same time, and the other is Nate’s issue with his son’s new girlfriend. He’s afraid that Michael is deviating from the path that Nate wants him to take. It’s a struggle of wills and basically having a parent know when to let go. I still can’t believe Nate has an eighteen year old son. He’s still a sexy man!
And then there’s the romance factor. We’ve seen in the first book of the series, She’s the One, the back and forth snipping and getting on each other’s nerves Emma and Nate are always seeming to do. I think it’s funny that no one really sees the sexual tension that is flying between the two. Apparently they were just that good. Of course at the end of She’s the One, Emma is in an accident and Nate is the one to patch her up and there is a scene when she’s in therapy that kind of opened people’s eyes about what might be lying under the surface. Oh! And another Erin treat she likes to throw in her books, other than smokin’ hot sex, is food/drink used during sex. I’ll tell you I will never look at chocolate cake the same way ever again! ;)
Even with all the sexy fun and humor, we were still given a small peek at what is to come in Going for Four with Cody and Olivia. And ladies that have read this series and love Connor, we get to see a softer side that made me complete mush in his hands. I can’t freaking wait for the final two in the series.
This series is beyond magnificent and I can’t read them quick enough. Not that I haven’t tried to bribe her otherwise. ;) I know when this series ends, I’m going to have a big void that will need filling by more of Erin’s addicting books!(less)
