Blurb: Float like a butterfly. Kill like a swallowtail.
Scott knows his boring day is over the second a bloody and scared George Kelvin crashes into his office, claiming people are trying to kill him. He knows he should pass the case over to one of his brothers, but he can’t seem to do it. The strength and resilience of the man mixed with a quirky sense of humor fascinate him. He may be a human in the company of powerful shifters, but he’s just as deadly and well trained as the rest of his brothers.
With devious CIA agents, foreign forces gunning for what George possesses and George’s power-hungry father, who is also Deputy Director of the FBI, Scott begins to wonder if he’s bitten off more than he can chew.
George always knew his father was dangerous and cruel. However, he never thought that those titles would inadequately sum up the lengths his father is willing to go to, to get what he wants. The only chance he has is using whatever is on file against his father. Staying alive to do that is another challenge. When he runs into the Shifter Protection Specialists, Inc. office, he’s desperate, but isn’t convinced anyone can protect him from his father. Risking more than he’d thought possible, he discovers that maybe he is more than he’s always been taught to believe.
One thing is for certain—his father is not going to give up easily
Review: This is book two in a series and though it’s a standalone, I highly recommend reading book one both because it’s really good and because it helps introduce the many, many characters in this book.
George is the brother of not-Barry, aka Frank, from book one. Frank tried to kill a model, Kale, who ended up being the mate of Aleksi who is Scott’s brother. Scott, Aleksi and several others are “brothers” who run a paranormal protection service. George goes to Scott via the Protection Service for safety. He’s being chased by his father because he has blackmail material on his computer that could put his father in jail for killing his mother.
Very complicated? Yes. But once you get past the complexities, this is a fun, rich story about shifters and political intrigue and computer geekiness.
I can’t tell you what the “twist” is, but let’s just say there’s a reason the cover looks like it does.
Scott has never been the sentimental, snuggly, protective type, but George brings about all those feelings and more. Watching him fall for George is sweet and at times really funny. George is both meek and fierce and when we see just what he’s capable of, it gets even more interesting. The smexy times were hot and the romance was very sweet.
I really enjoyed book one, and book two takes right up where that left off. SA Welsh has a fun, engaging writing style with very “real” but creative characters who don’t follow the typical “shifter” lore but still give off that “MINE” vibe.
Overall Impression: I loved it
