An Alisa Review: Nothing in Common, Except … by Edward Kendrick

Rating:  3 stars out of 5

 

Braxton “Brax” O’Hara is a shifter, a PI … and an art thief. He has no problem with being all three. As a matter of fact, he likes his less than legal job.

 

Kyle Grayson is a member of an all-shifter art crimes team. He does everything within his power to catch the thieves he’s after, and believes he’s found his next quarry — Brax O’Hara.

 

Things take a turn for the worse when Russo, Brax’s partner in crime, wants him to retrieve some blackmail pictures instead of a piece of art. At the same time, Kyle comes into the picture. When the two men meet, they discover they both know the blackmailer — and they both hate him, too, for different reasons.

 

Can they stop Russo, a powerful Alpha shifter? More to the point, can they deal with their attraction to each other when they have nothing in common except Russo?

 

This was a pretty action packed story.  I do want to note one thing that isn’t correct in the book description is that Russo if not Brax’s partner in crime, but is actually Caleb.  Brax and Kyle have much more in common than they think at their first meeting and in the assumptions they made about each other.

 

This story is told from both of the MCs points of view so we get the chance to see how both of these characters feel.  Brax knows that Kyle could never really want him, especially if he thinks let alone knows that he is the thief he is looking for.  Kyle thinks he needs to put their connection behind him but finds that isn’t as easy as he thought it would be.  While this story had a lot going on I just had trouble connecting with the characters and really understanding them, it didn’t help that there were a few grammar mistakes that just glared at me throughout the book.

 

The cover art by Written Ink Designs is nice and gives great visuals of the characters in both forms.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
