Blurb: Dr. Malak Shahzed moved to the small town of Goodfields for a quiet practice and a chance to leave his other life behind. Finding kind and handsome Sheriff Shiloh Payne is a bonus. Their relationship is mostly stolen glances and innocent meetings, but Malak wants to play doctor with Shiloh—if the sheriff feels the same.
All is not well in Goodfields. After each PTA meeting, the body of a single man is found torn apart by a wild animal, and the town is getting nervous.
Murder is complicating Malak’s seduction of Shiloh, especially since he knows more than he is willing to admit. Because sane people don’t believe in werewolves…. Do they?
Malak moved to Goodfields to live a quiet life and get away from his old life. And when he meets Shiloh, the sheriff, settling in the small town might just turn out to be a good thing.. It takes a while but Malak finally convinces the sheriff to act on what’s between them. At the same time, when a series of murders happen after every PTA meeting, Malak’s old life comes back to haunt him. And before he realizes it, he’s struggling to juggle what he has with Shiloh and his past.
It’s hard for me to write this review because on one hand, I really enjoyed this one. I liked the concept behind it and I liked the pacing but on the other hand, I had a few issues with it. I liked that Shiloh and Malak were circling each other but never acted on their attraction. I liked that Malak had so many secrets and that he wanted to live a peaceful life. I liked that Shiloh was such a jealous person and the connection between them.
What I didn’t really like is that it was a bit contradictory at times. Such as when they were trying to determine who the Were was and gave off traits of what the Were would do and, in the end, the Were ended up doing everything they said it ‘wouldn’t’ do or ‘wouldn’t’ act like. I was also a bit disappointed in the way things ended. I expected an intense ending but was really underwhelmed with how things played out.
All in all, it wasn’t a bad story. It had it’s good parts and it’s bad but it was still an enjoyable read. If you’re looking for a smexy short story with a bit of mystery, definitely five this one a go.
Overall Impression: It was good
