When the last thing you want, is everything you need…
Seb Calloway isn’t interested in shifters. After his best friend bonded with one, he avoids getting involved with them—no matter how hot they are—to prevent the same thing from happening to him. Why take the risk for a few hours of fun?
Tim Walters is the pack doctor. Considered to be mild-mannered and non-threatening by pack standards, he prides himself on being able to stay calm and maintain his control at all times. Desperate for a bond of his own, he knows his interest in Seb is an exercise in futility, but he can’t seem to help himself.
When news emerges that threatens Seb’s safety, he and Tim need to fake a relationship to keep Seb safe. Despite Seb’s refusal to be anything other than friends with benefits, what starts out as pretend, quickly becomes more—for Tim at least. If Tim doesn't want to end up heartbroken, he needs to prove to Seb that loving a shifter doesn’t mean losing himself.
While I loved this second story in the series, there was just *something* intangible that felt not necessarily missing, just more muted, I suppose, so book 1 is still my favorite.
I suspect that part of what I was hoping for in this story was the same level of snark and banter as in the initial book. But Tim was basically a nice, caring person, whereas Nathan could be a bit of an arrogant prick, sometimes, so Seb's snark didn't really have a really hard surface to bounce off of on-page.
It also felt as if the feels, at least the reciprocal ones, came a bit later in this book than the first. It didn't leave me wanting them sooner, per se, as I did feel that events happened in a pretty realistic sequence and pace here.
The sexy bits were still just as steamy, just as I expected, if you're interested in that sort of thing.
I loved how the epilogue played out, with the wheels beginning to spin to have the bad guys, the ones really doing the plotting behind the scenes, brought to justice with the pack council.
And I'm *freaking dying* to read Mark's story. Or Luke's. Or Mark *and* Luke's story.
Yes, please, Mistress Annabelle, may I have another?!?!?
I'd rate this one at around 4.25 stars and will definitely be continuing to read this series as it's released. : )
