Connor Ragbone finds things. Sometimes it’s gold, sometimes jewels, sometimes people. Set in his hippie ways, he never thought he’d find a pack, but with Sam and Gus and their goofy shifter family, he fits right in. Then he finds Brock.
Shifter Brock Herman is undercover alone, working to break up a poaching ring. The last thing he needs is for Connor to wreck his sting. And now the crazy bobcat just won’t go away!
The poachers lead Brock and Connor on a merry chase all over Western Colorado looking for shifter bears, but it’s a lost pup who brings them back to Nevada and the pack Sam and Gus are building. That’s when Brock has to decide whether he still travels alone or if Connor and his crazy family are where his heart belongs.
This follow-up to Just Like Cats and Dogs is a feel-good shifter romance novel where cats and dogs prove they can be way more than the enemies nature has made them.
This is a wonderful story. Connor is a finder and when he is led to Brock he isn’t sure what he is supposed to do with him but he won’t leave him until he knows. Brock never knew he was lost until he connects with Connor in a way he never thought he would want.
Connor knows he needs to stay with Brock and readily accepts their change in relationship but he knows he needs to give Brock some more time to accept everything. They find that working together they can get stuff done efficiently even if it isn’t quite following the rules.
We get to see both of these character’s points of view which help to understand what is going on in their heads. Their mate bond grows quickly, but they have to continue to work together for it to get stronger. I loved Connor’s excitement and willingness to do pretty much anything to help others and it is plain to see when he is with the pack. Brock is a bit stubborn but knows when the right time is to follow his heart and instincts. I loved seeing Gus, Sam and their pack again and seeing how much love and acceptance they have for those around them and each other it is wonderfully refreshing.
Cover art by Alexandria Corza wonderful and it has great visuals of Connor and Brock, both in human and animal form.
