Once in a blue moon, opposites find they’re a perfect match.
Nick Perry is tired of helping people with their marriages, so when a spot opens up to work with teens at Camp H.O.W.L., he jumps at it. He doesn’t expect to fall in lust with the dreamy new camp doctor, Drew Welch. But Drew is human, and Nick has seen secrets ruin too many relationships to think that a human/werewolf romance can go anywhere.
Happy-go-lucky Drew may not sprout claws, but he’s been part of the Were community all his life. He has no trouble fitting in at the camp—except for Nick’s stubborn refusal to acknowledge the growing attraction between them and his ridiculous stance on dating humans. Fate intervenes when one of his private practice patients threatens Drew’s life. Will the close call help Nick to see a connection like theirs isn’t something to let go of?
This was a nice continuation in the series, though there are a lot of assumptions going on which make it hard for these two to be together. Nick and Drew are both starting new jobs and when they spend a night together have no idea that they will be working together.
Nick has seen so many horror stories about dating and marriages come to life that he fears getting seriously involved with a human, even one as in depth as Drew. Drew wants someone to love him but isn’t willing to back down from what he wants to get it.
Both of these guys have issues from their past causing hurt but also have to learn to trust someone else. I could see both of their pain and how much it hurt Nick when he thought his chances with Drew were gone and how Drew’s assumption that Nick didn’t want him hurt him too. It just seemed to me as they finally are talking things out it all goes back to assumptions again which was like taking two steps back.
Dorian Bane did a great job narrating this story. I was easily able to connect with the characters and feel their emotions in his reading. His voice changes so much you really get to see the differences and personality of the characters.
Cover art by Aaron Anderson is great and works well for this story.
