Sexy Shifter Story Indeed!

  • Sep 18, 2010

PJVs QUICKIE POV: Whoah Mamma! I found a new author and her name is Kinsey W. Holley! Can you believe this was just a random kindle download from the recommended section? I can't, maybe I should pay attention to those more often? This hot little PNR had everything a paranormal junkee could ask for: Hot sexy werewolf Alpha, tough, but slightly tilted heroine, great writing, interesting back-story, cool shifter dynamics...and the potential to grow. Ms. Holley, no rush or anything, but can I have some more?

REVIEW: Incest is best...put your sister to the test. I think that was like some stupid phrase in grammar school or something. Lark and Taran call themselves cousins, but Taran is more like an older brother since Lark actually lived with his mother after her parents died. Technically they are not related at all, but that still doesn't make Lark feel better about her hot fantasies that she has about Taran and the flame that she has been holding for him for like, ever.

When Lark gets herself in a bit of trouble with some Euro wolves, a little GHP and an attempt on her life, Taran, who is now a Houston PD detective takes it upon himself to protect Lark. Close quarters and heated emotions might play a little too much for them though, as secrets come out - and hidden feelings are revealed.

Can I get a Taran of my own? Yum. This was definitely a fun and entertaining read. I am a fan of both the hero and heroine and all that went along with them. The book kept me glued throughout, not one dip into boredom with this one. Great thing about the kindle on my iPhone - reading in the line picking up the Drama Queen, reading at the football game, reading at the line in the grocery store...reading while I'm doing that web upload at work. Couldn't put it down. My only niggle in the negative about this one was the ending - and I'll try to keep this spoiler free. There was a bit of an unresolved conflict, I wanted to see the outcome of a particular plot thread, which never happened. At least a quick epilogue that tidied everything up. That's it, though, wasn't that big of a deal. The main feature was resolved, so that is all that mattered.

This is short read, and a very cheap listing, on amazon.com for $2.80 here. I love a good book deal!

RECOMMENDATIONS: Adults only, a lot of happy coupling. PNR fans, werewolf fans should enjoy. While a werewolf book, the paranormal elements are not over-powering, it would be a good contemporary to PNR transition book.

About this book


Brotherly love? Oh hell no…

A Sexy Shifter story.

On the surface, court reporter Lark Manning looks like the luckiest girl in the world, blessed with great friends and a wonderful family. Underneath, she harbors a hopelessly unrequited love for the sexy werewolf everyone thinks of as her cousin. Taran rarely notices her except to condescend or lecture. He’s treated her the same way since she was eight years old, and there’s no reason to think he’ll ever change.

Taran Lloyd, a detective in the Houston Police Department’s Shifters Investigations Unit (SHIU), lives for those rare moments he gets to spend around Lark, torturing himself with what he can’t have. Kin only by marriage, she thinks of him as her big brother. He couldn’t bear her pity—or her disgust—if she learned he wants her for his mate.

When weres from a rival pack attack her, Lark screams out the first name that comes to mind—Taran. Only this sexy alpha can keep her safe until they find out who wants her dead, and why. But keeping her safe means keeping her close. And the closer they get, the harder it gets for these not-really-cousins to honor their commitment to keep their paws off.

Warning: Contains a heroine with the world’s worst poker face, a hero with more honor than sense, and explicit shifter sex that makes you wish werewolves really were part of the gene pool.
