ARC Review: Searching for Shelter (Sin City Uniforms 6) by Morticia Knight

Teen shelter volunteer Rich searches for love until Diego, from LVMPD Search and Rescue, finds him.

After declaring his love life officially dead, Rich wonders if maybe he should stick with his shifter book boyfriends instead. It’s not as if he has much free time to date anyway. Between working long hours at a coffee shop, guarding his sodas from his hygienically challenged roommates, and running the programming at the Vegas LGBTQ teen shelter he founded—how could there ever be space for love in his life?

Diego Espinoza enjoys taking his downtime from working Search and Rescue, at the Lucky Cup coffee shop. He can set up his laptop, peruse good sport climbing spots and observe the blond barista he’s been pining over for a while. He imagines that the pretty boy has more offers than he knows what to do with, so it takes Diego time to work up the nerve to approach him.

Rich isn’t so sure about the rough looking Diego—even if he’s always thought he was hot—but once he decides to gives Diego a chance, there’s an immediate heat and connection that takes him by surprise. As they learn more about each other and try to find the way to a future together, strange and scary things start to happen.

It isn’t until Rich is injured in a bizarre accident that it becomes clear that there’s someone out there who not only doesn’t want Rich to find love—they want him dead.

Dani's rating:

Morticia Knight books are my hot fudge sundae: sweet & delicious if consumed in moderation.

Searching for Shelter follows the same formula as the other books in the Sin City Uniforms series: one of the MCs wears a uniform (fireman, cop, hostage negotiator, search & rescue), while the other doesn't; Insta Love; plenty of XXX-rated steamy scenes; silly and contrived mystery/suspense plot; and a HEA.

In this story, Diego of the Los Angeles Search and Rescue has been wanting to ask out the cute guy at the coffee shop for months. Once he finds the courage, Rich flatly tell him NO. But promptly changes his mind.

Good choice, Rich.

Diego is the Perfect Boyfriend. He's kind and considerate. He's a wonderful listener. And he's a GOD in bed. Diego is especially fond of ass play, and ... WOW, Rich's ass gets a good workout. Diego and Rich play HAWT & DIRTY.

The plot, which involves people being hurt and/or dying in mysterious accidents and Rich being a witness to a murder, is a bit of a throwaway. It provides some tension, but it doesn't make much sense if you think about it too hard. Which I didn't. Because. SEX.

I liked the alternating third-person POV, but the characters aren't particularly well developed, especially Diego, who is almost too good.

The MCs go from meeting to first date to moving in together to forever in ... two weeks? Maybe three? Whatever. It was cute.

My ARC had quite a few editing issues, which I hope will be corrected in the final published version.

Recommended for a no-thinking-required porny read with a feel-good ending.
