Blurb: When his nephew shoots a dove with a BB gun, veterinarian Abel March promises the remorseful boy that he will take care of the bird and its broken wing. He doesn’t count on the dove changing into a (very naked) man in the middle of the night.
The shapeshifter’s name is Darcy and his clan has just moved into the area, much to the dismay of some of the residents who hold prejudices against their kind.
Sweet and sometimes sassy, Darcy is the first man Abel has felt connected to for a long time. He wants to keep him safe, and when someone threatens him, Abel reacts with unusual ferocity. He’s falling in love with Darcy, but when circumstances separate them, he’s left not knowing if the sentiment is returned.
The answer to that question will change both of their lives forever.
This was a super cute story. I won’t go into much detail about it but what I will say is that I loved how eager and almost innocent Darcy was while Abel is so strong and endearing. At the same time, I really liked the world building for this one. I enjoyed the fact that shapeshifters were known to the world and little clans lived openly among humans.
I thought this one had a lot of potential but it had way too much sex for my liking to the point that, it overshadowed the story considering how short it is. If the story had been longer, it would have balanced out especially since it would have given the author more time to develop not just the story but also the characters.
Overall, I enjoyed the story a lot and absolutely loved where the author was going with it. I wish it had been longer to really flesh out the characters and the world but I definitely recommend it for those looking for a short, cute and a bit smutty shifter story.
Overall Impression: I liked it
