‘Lance had stopped even trying to fight his dog. Chance wanted to be with Tim—wanted it full-on with all his dog’s instinctual joy, focus, and anxious sense of duty. So. Lance let him.’
“Will you—will you f@ck me and bite me in the neck? And will that mean we’re mated forever?” Tim asked. It sounded like begging, but he didn’t much care.
Lance laughed and raised his head. “We don’t do that.”
“Oh.” That was disappointing. Lance cocked his head and studied Tim’s face for a moment.
“Unless you… want me to?”
“More,” Tim said. “More of everything. Except your clothes. Less of those.”
This book got me really hooked from the get go. I love how it was written -- my senses in hyper-aware mode. Everything is detailed, as if the events are set in slow motion, giving me the chance to notice even the minute of things.
Although I am not a big fan of shifter books -- a book has yet to change my life -- but this was such a unique take on the trope. I love dogs but after reading this, I want to adopt ten more. A collie with piercing blue eyes, particularly.
I liked Lance. His intensity was endearing. But time and time again, I am putty in the hands of characters with self-deprecating nature. Tim just gave life to this book. He enamored me. Hands down.
I also quite enjoyed the humor in this one. The mixed signals, childlike innocence, and little misunderstandings. All these were given a funny undertone. It made the story quite enjoyable to follow.
And I just discovered a new kink. Who knew lots of sniffing and licking in sex were huge turn ons?
Overall, I'm giving this 4 furry stars.
"Tim kissed Lance for all he was worth, his tongue warm and soft. He tasted like sunshine and sweet earth, like boy and mate, like the essence of love and the swamping lust of sex. Lance had never been looking for a mate, but right then he couldn’t imagine how life had any color without this right here—this living, warm creature in his arms."
