Blurb: Sometimes you have to get over bad memories to create new ones.
Trevor has known who his mate was for years, but he’s so painfully shy and insecure that the most he’s done to woo him has been leaving him cupcakes on his porch. He knows he’s going to lose him if he doesn’t finally make a move, though, and with a not so gentle push from two of his friends, he calls Micah.
Micah is still dealing with bad memories from his shifter ex-boyfriend, and he’s glad when he meets Trevor. Trevor looks unassuming and sweet, and Micah is thrilled, until he finds out Trevor is just like his ex. He runs, thinking he’ll never see Trevor again.
Family and friends conspire to get Trevor and Micah together, and it works, until Micah discovers his father has been hiding a secret that could put Trevor and the entire pride in danger. Will Micah and Trevor’s fragile relationship survive, or will the past push them apart?
Review: Trevor is Casey’s uncle (Casey mated Ronan) and he’s a very shy Cheetah shifter. He’s known who is mate is for years but has been too shy to approach him. He’s been leaving Micah cupcakes for the last year – his attempt to woo the human.
Micah is Casey’s friend and previously dated a shifter named Erik who abused him. When he meets Trevor, he feels the attraction and is grateful Trevor is a human, too.
When Trevor confesses that he’s a shifter, both men feel a broken heart. Neither understands the other’s reaction but Micah runs away and tells Trevor to never contact him again.
This was a very low steam story – especially as compared to others in the story – but I’m not sure that matters. The basic premise and the plot flowed really well and there just wasn’t a strong need for the sex.
I love Keenan and Nysys and thought this was a pretty great addition to the series.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
