Kale Andrews is dragged to the Shifter Protection Specialists Inc. office by his brother when he gets disturbing mail from an obsessed fan. He reluctantly agrees to have a bodyguard but when a the tall muscular blond walks in to the office emanating power and a sexy dose of danger Kale’s doubts about needing the man with him twenty four hours a day quickly disappear.
The easy babysitting job Aleksi was promised quickly changes from strange mail to threatening deliveries and Aleksi has to get creative to get his protectee out of the line of fire. Everyone knows models are self-centred and shallow, so why does being with Kale make him feel like he finally has a home? Being a saber-tooth tiger means that most people aren’t strong enough to be with him in a relationship or even as friends, he’s too naturally dominant. Yet Kale seems to calm his beast at the same time as exciting the man in him.
Neither men expected nor wanted a relationship with strings, but as they grow closer Aleksi realizes that Kale might just be his mate. With the obsessed fan escalating to murder, Aleksi isn’t sure even his tiger can keep his mate safe.When this book came up for review a few months ago, I had to pass on it. But it never left my mind. So when boss lady said we are doing theme months and we pick, supply our own books I pulled this from my secret sample stash, bought it and snuggled down.
I believe this is my first book by this author, if not one of very few. But as I’ve said before not my first shifter books. LOVE my shifters.
The problem is this one had too many head scratching moments for me to really get into it. We’ve got a model with a head on his shoulders, plus side! A brother/manager that is super worried about a stalker going after the model brother. But once the brother hires Aleksi’s agency, the super worried brother just disappears? And everyone just brushes it off to him finally being able to relax and ‘get some’. We also are given back case info, so I start wondering if I missed a book, is it important. And the major one is catching the stalker. Unless I missed it, that’s kinda glossed over and I’m left wonder.. huh? and then we have an epilogue and it’s explained.
I do like Kale and Aleksi together, I liked that Kale knows the deal for modeling and has a plan. I also like that shifters are known but we still have people that are bias towards them, keeps it real. I was also pleasantly surprised that Aleksi wasn’t pulled into the modeling world w/Kale. As his beauty was mentioned several times. Kept expecting for one of the photo’ops to drag him in. The story was set up for a book 2, and I’ll keep a look out for it.
