So for a super fast read this book was extremely steamy!!

Luc and Jonny were perfect for each other in this book. Jonny’s vampire to Luc’s Jaguar was really awesome to see especially when you can see how much they really care about each other.
Jonny catches Luc breaking into his office but Luc does not get what he broke in after so Luc tries again the next night. Jonny makes him a deal to give Luc what is after for something Jonny wants.. I am going to leave it at that because this book being so short I do not want to give any away.

I will leave this review with I really liked this Novella!

I would recommend this book!


This was the first book in this story that I read, but I didn’t feel like I was being dumped into a storyline or lost so I’d fully say this was a standalone in the series.
I loved that the shifter is more comfortable in his cat skin than his human form since we so often see shifters stay more human than their other form. I also LOVED the playfulness of Luc with both Jonny and the other weres.
There was a bit of drama, a bit of heat and all around I would say it was a good book with a bit of a cliffhanger at the end.
However, my one complaint is that sometimes I would get lost with who was doing what to the other when the two men were together. They both liked to bite and claw each other and sometimes I didn’t know what was going on to whom so that left me confused and threw off the pacing to me because I had to reread parts over and over or just keep going and hope I caught up.
