Blurb: Letting people in is never easy, but sometimes you have to in order to be happy.
Kir is one of the exotic shifters rescued by Craig. He never went home, choosing to stay with the Gillham pack, but he never really integrated himself into the pack. He wanted to make sure the pack wouldn’t betray him like his skulk had. He took his time to observe, and he finally decided it was time to make friends.
Quinn knows he’s a prickly bastard. He had to hide behind that façade for most of his life, and now he can’t step from behind it, not that he wants to. It feels safer to keep most people at arm’s length. He didn’t expect to find his mate when Kameron called him and Malik to help with the rival council though, and he knows Kir is probably the only one who can wiggle his way into his heart if he lets his guard down.
Kir does his best to get under Quinn’s shell, but when the man punches him and tells him to stay away, he gets the message, even though he still hopes he’ll be able to change Quinn’s mind. He knows he has a great opportunity when Kameron assigns him as a bodyguard for Quinn, but will he be able to protect Quinn and make him fall in love with him? Will Quinn finally let someone in, or will he stay safely ensconced in his hard shell?
Review: Quinn is Malik’s friend and he’s an a**hole and he knows it. When he finds out Kir, a fennec fox shifter from Africa, is his mate, he knows his nest will not accept an alpha mate who’s not white, female or an eagle.
Basically, Kir has three strikes and he’s out as far as Quinn is concerned.
Kir isn’t so quick to let Quinn get away with pushing away his only chance at a mate and he devises a scheme in which he’s Quinn’s bodyguard.
Eventually… well – you’ll see!
This was fun. I wanted to punch Quinn for most of the book, but the ending is really nice and Quinn does his closest approximation of a grovel that you’d expect.
Overall Impression: I liked it
