Blurb: From one-night stand to nurse and patient—is it crazy to expect more?
Angelo has somehow developed leukemia—the only paranormal ever known to do so—and the doctors are mystified as to the cause. The cure requires him to repress his shifter side with a chemical inhibitor and be entirely human while he goes through chemotherapy, which contributes to some interesting situations he never would have foreseen—things like ‘misplacing’ his favorite bar, Unconventional, and getting picked up by a human without realizing it’s his mate.
Dominic can’t believe his luck when bravely striking up a conversation with the hottest guy he’s ever seen leads to the best sex he’s ever had. When he wakes up—no surprise—Angelo is gone. A week later, he’s shocked when he walks in to meet a new oncology patient to find Angelo fighting for his life and dependent upon his care.
Will their timing ever improve, or will Angelo’s time run out before they get a chance?
Review: In a strange turn of events, Angelo – an “ocean shifter” – ends up with Leukemia and having to stay “human” to receive treatment. His one night hook-up ends up being his oncology nurse and his mate!
The hook-up/nurse/mate, Dominic, is a human, and Angelo is worried about where things will go if and when he heals.
This was a short little story with some unique twists. I liked the “ocean shifter” thing and wished we’d seen Angelo “shifted”. I liked where the plot was heading with other paranormals getting sick and trying to find solutions. I didn’t really feel too compelled for our MCs, however, they just didn’t spend enough time together for me to get too attached.
It was fairly well written, but way too short.
Overall Impression: It was good
