Just Like Cats and Dogs (Sanctuary #1) by B.A. Tortuga #mm #review @batortuga @dreamspinners

A Sanctuary Novel

Can cats and dogs ever get along, let alone fall in love?

Sam knows you can never go home again. As an orphaned feline shifter raised by wolves, being an outcast is nothing new to him. But the pack is still his family, and when one of them passes away, Sam returns to the New Mexico desert to say good-bye.

Gus is a loner who rarely returns to his pack, but as fate would have it, Sam is there when he chooses to visit. The history between Gus and Sam is tumultuous, to say the least, but when Gus gets an eyeful of the grown-up and gorgeous version of his childhood bully, he can’t control his reaction. And he isn’t alone.

The attraction is powerful, but so are their differences. And with trouble brewing in the pack and danger surrounding them, Sam and Gus might not have the opportunity to seek common ground.

This action-packed shifter novel is the ultimate opposites attract and enemies-to-lovers romance, and it includes a bonus novella, In the Dog House.

First Edition published by Torquere Press, 2011.

When I think of shifters I think of a wolf pack or some other gathering of like shifters.  This book takes things differently, it comes at it more from the human side of things.
Sam is a feline shifter who grew in a wolf pack.  He learns early that he is different and the pack will not accept him.  So when he grew up he moved on with a career away from home.  Life is still not easy, he is bullied and beaten.  When life takes a twist he and he finds his mate it doesn’t get easier just more confusing. Gus is stunned when he falls for Sam they must find a place where they can be accepted for who they are not what they are.
A dynamic and action filled book.  There are fights and jail, kidnappings and abuse. Through it all our main characters learn to deal with their attraction and there opposition from out side forces.  Love ment to be will overcome the nay sayers.
This is what happens when people judge you for what you are not who you are.  There is a lesson to be learned that people should not judge others by what they see.
