Welcome to my Throwback Thursday series of book reviews. I thought I’d share some love for books that aren’t new releases. These reviews have all been previously shared on Goodreads.
This book is trademark Eli Easton, with lots of humour and a romance that leaves you sighing with satisfaction. Roman is newly quickened — he started out life as a dog, but after growing close to his Army handler and watching him die in Afghanistan, he gets the spark that allows him to shift into human form. It’s only been two years since he’s been able to shift, and there are a lot of things that are still so new to him. But one of the best things about this book is how much joy Roman has in being human. It’s really sort of uplifting to read.
Then there’s the pure “wtf” aspect of the humour on Matt’s end. Matt is human, in the DEA, and assigned to the weird little town of Mad Creek to be on the lookout for drug operations. This, understandably, freaks out the sheriff of Mad Creek (Lance, one of the heroes from the previous book), seeing as the entire town is made up of quickened — some of them pretty doglike. Roman, a deputy, is assigned to keep Matt busy out of town, but it’s not enough to keep Matt from wondering wtf is going on.
Although this book is the second in the series, you could definitely read it as a standalone — though then you’d be missing out on Lance’s story, and that one is just as cute and funny. I highly recommend both!
