Jason Grant runs his own IT business from home, owns his own home, and has the best friend he could imagine. What he doesn’t have, or believe he will ever have, is love. When Jason catches a glimpse of his new neighbor on moving day, his libido ignites and his fascination in piqued. He even manages to concoct an excuse to go over and meet the man who makes him hope and want for more than he has in years.

Keith Skyler is a shifter in a world where his kind is known only to a few, but they don’t often mix and they never mate. Keith has been hoping for a mate since before he can remember, but gay lynx don’t have true mates. As far as he knows, they don’t have mates at all. However, while moving his little family across Seattle—and away from their tribe—his reality tips and spins more than he thought possible.

When these two men meet over a dish of five-cheese broccoli-noodle casserole, sparks fly. Who knew a welcome-to-the-neighborhood gift could give both of them their chance at love?

My View:

I hope Whiskers of a Chance is the first in paranormal romance series by Tempeste O’Riley. Throughout this story, she created a world that I want to revisit, and she introduced characters who need their happily ever afters. While the story focused mainly on Keith and Jason, the cast of characters charmed their way into my heart, especially Sasha. We can’t forget, however, all of Keiths friends and new inner circle.

As for Keith and Jason’s story, it had its positive and negative points. Like I said before, these characters charmed me. Jason’s reticence finally gave way just as I was about to be irritated at his obstinance. Keith’s commitment to Jason’s well-being, mental and physical, was admirable. They were hot together, but more importantly they were sweet together, and each gave the other something they needed.

Their story is told with love, respect, and a hint a humor. Jason may be an Alpha King, but he doesn’t act like it. He is kind and compassionate throughout the story. I would have liked a little more meat to his and Jason’s backstories, but I was basically satisfied enough with what we were given.

I would love to revisit this world.
