Humane Officer Derek Williams has been toying with the idea of asking out Brian O’Donogue since the veterinarian started working at the Pet Rescue Center two years ago. So why hasn’t he made his move? It’s complicated… but it has something to do with the fact that Derek occasionally likes to run around on four legs instead of two.
Recovering from an abusive relationship and hiding supernatural abilities of his own, Brian takes a chance and agrees to go on a date with Derek. The ensuing relationship is better than either of them could have hoped-until a rogue wolf shifter attacks Brian while he’s walking his dogs. The abrupt attack forces Derek to confront his feelings, but the danger isn’t over. The rogue shifter is out there, and he’s hunting them.
I wasn’t sure how this was going to go. But in the end I really enjoyed it. Derek had some serious anger management issue’s, that people passed off as ‘passion’ for his work. But Brian was a great calmer to that. Also, that two years of circling but never asking, but after I finished reading I was thinking about it. If you love your job, the time goes quickly and two years is gone before you realize. so yeah.
The dogs are adorable and are perfect secondary cast to this tale. The fact that Brian and Derek both have special abilities only help them understand each other and the situation they are thrown into. I loved the possessiveness that Derek has towards Brian. And the love and courage Brian shows when he finds out Derek’s secret.
