When Tanner moves to Chicago for a new job, he experiences his First Shift, a revelation that signifies he’s met his mate since the last full moon. The only problem? He doesn’t know who it is. To find his mate, he enlists his new assistant Jon to arrange a series of dates, but each one turns out more disastrous than the last.
With the next full moon quickly approaching, Tanner finally determines the identity of his true mate. Unfortunately, Jon has since disappeared, and Tanner must now begin a new search. Is it really Jon’s family crisis pulling him away, or is Jon just not that into him?
I want to say that I really enjoyed He’s Just Knot That Into You for the most part. It was fun, cute, humorous and entertaining. Tanner was so earnest and eager to finally find his mate and Jon was adorable. I loved that Tanner had no angst as to whether his mate would be male or female. It seemed as though it didn’t matter at all in this world. The romance was sweet and the story flowed along easily.
Until the conflict at the end… It came out of left field and left behind a lot of questions that I can’t ask as it would result in spoilers. It seemed manufactured simply to give action and drama to the book without a real reason for it to exist. As well there were few little details that were dropped in the story that were given no explanation, even though the implications affected the couple. Things such as the possibility of mpreg. I also don’t think the title fits the book at all as, despite the blurb’s line “Is it really Jon’s family crisis pulling him away, or is Jon just not that into him?”, Tanner never thought that and Jon never acted hard to get. The “Knot” part is cute, as there is a wonderful knotting scene, but really that is all that ties it to the book.
This isn’t to say that I didn’t love Tanner and Jon together or as people; I did, very much. They were great characters and I loved their time together. I also was intrigued with the mythology of the world and how fated mates worked. The author obviously put time in thinking about how she wanted her werewolves to be.
I do recommend story if you’re in the mood for a fun shifter book and you can suspend your belief at the end.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
