Donovan is the new guy in town, a polar shifter, harboring a big secret. He’s a big city bear who moved to the tiny town of Forgotten, Wyoming, in hopes of finding peace. What he finds is poison ivy and angry wasps.
TJ, a grizzly shifter, is the local doctor with a past. He’s found a home in the country, but lacks happiness and a sense of belonging. The fact that he’s in the midst of his natural mating season doesn’t help in the least. The moment Donovan enters TJ’s clinic, sparks fly. TJ is determined to resist the temptation that is Donovan, but his inner bear and Donovan have other ideas.
When a hunter starts going after shifters and a blast from Donovan’s past show up for revenge, things get hot. But not as hot as the attraction between Donovan and TJ. If they can pull together and survive, they just might discover that, while they might be polar opposites, sometimes opposites do attract.
This was an alright story, though I didn’t connect to the character which would have made it better. Donovan and TJ seem to have one thing in common and that’s that they are bear shifters. Though deep down aren’t too different from each other.
Both of these guys are keeping secrets and though TJ’s comes out sooner Donovan’s causes more problems. I felt that these two were just going through the motions to make the story work which is always true but it felt forced. I also had to continually go back and reread parts of the story to make sure I knew what was going on because names were often flip flopped.
The cover art by Written Ink Designs is okay, we get visuals of Donovan in both his bear form and his human form.
