Deputy Roman Charsguard survived Afghanistan where he lost his best friend—his K-9 handler James. Roman was a military dog until two years ago when he developed the ability to shift into a human. It’s not easy to learn how to be a man. He found a place to live in Mad Creek, a haven for the secret world of dog shifters. Finding a reason to live has been harder. That is, until a certain human walks into the Mad Creek Sheriff’s office and starts making trouble.
Matt Barclay has the worst luck. First he was shot in a SWAT drug raid, then he was sent as DEA investigator to Mad Creek, a little town in the California mountains. Matt’s job is to keep a lookout for illegal drug farms, but nobody in the town wants him there. And then there’s Roman, Matt’s erstwhile baby-sitter. He’s the hottest guy Matt’s ever seen, even if he is a bit peculiar. If the town doesn’t kill him, sexual frustration just might.
The town is counting on Roman to prevent Matt from learning about dog shifters, Matt’s counting on Roman to be his work partner and tell him the truth, and Roman’s trying to navigate love, sex, and a whole lot of messy human emotions. Who knew it was so complicated to walk like a man?
I loved Roman. I loved how his history was emotional and pertinent. I loved his need to please, his innocence, and his heart. He broke my heart and he healed it again. He was such an emotional character and so in need of love and a place to fit that I had to keep listening to see him find his happy. And Matt made a good happy for him because Matt was a good man too. He had his issues, but he was great with and for Roman and I loved their connection.
I enjoyed learning more about the Quickened and the town of Mad Creek. These characters brought humor to the story as well as an overall air of acceptance. I loved the way they were learning to be human but still had so many canine personality traits. It was awesome and I can’t wait to learn who will be next to get his mate in this series.
Finally, I loved the plot. It was interesting and a made for good continuity from book 1. I also liked that the plot highlighted Roman and Matt’s strengths while also allowing for them to improve upon their weaknesses. The plot was a great way for the men to get to know one another and gave this story the forward momentum it needed to flow well.
Overall, I recommend this story to anyone looking for a good heartwarming shifter tale.It was well written and fun. Roman and Matt are awesome and you will love the way Roman discovers himself and how his innocence makes the Sheriff blush!
I enjoyed this narration. It brought out all the right things of Roman and Matt’s journey.
