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?
Ah, Nico Jaye’s usual fare of sweetness and sexy times. Great and entertaining.
But in this story, suddenly there is a real narrative thing happening, and I find I can finally see her strong writing skills. I want more of this side of Nico Jaye, I want more stories with backbone and depth, because this is brilliant. Just brilliant.
(I just wish an editor had cut through the dime-fiction expressions of glancing up through his lashes and becoming impossibly stiff, because it would bring it all to the level of exceptional).
More and longer stories from Nico, please! This begs for more. It was both beautiful and delicious.
I was given a free ARC of this book from the publisher, Dreamspinner Press, and a positive review wasn’t promised in return.
