For example, police officers end up with 8 dogs and cats. Seattle and King County only allow 3 companion animals. It makes no sense that police officers would have no problem I had a LOT of problems with this book. It makes no sense that police officers would have no problem with this. Not saying they wouldn't do it, but I think it would occur to them because the area is VERY strict about licensing pets.
Also same police officers allow their large pack of dogs to run loose in a public park. This is illegal for good reason. A hyped up dog may play too ruffly and someone, especially a young child, could get seriously hurt. This is particularly ridiculous in the greater Seattle are where there are a bunch of excellent off-leash dog parks. Climax unsatisfying because view spoiler [someone other than the MCs took care of it while our heroes just watched. Derek had threatened to neuter the poor mutt, and the dog took him seriously.
I know of no animal rescue organizations that don't require pets to be neutered, certainly not around here.

Even Purebred Dog Rescue requires it. Anything else is incredibly irresponsible. Pet rescue employee parks several blocks from the park and lets his exuberant and excited dog walk the whole way off leash. No dog, no matter how well trained, should walk off leash near streets. They are animals and will act on instinct if it's strong enough. No prep for anal sex for a guy who hasn't had sex in ages.
The other guy doesn't want to hurt him and yet doesn't get him ready?? This is personal taste, but I find a guy going to a date with three buttons undone on his shirt without anything underneath extremely tacky. I also had a hard time picturing a slight rather effeminate man says the text with a beard. It's described as a light beard and that just screams ick to me.
Never miss a deal!
Also, both men are hairy. I'm not big on hairy.
Guy thinks the other guy is a normal human. He notices that other guy's eyes are glowing during sex and he just thinks it's sexy. His reaction is completely absurd. When one MC is acting werewolfish, the vet who is still unaware of the man being a shifter always says the man's acting like a wolf, rather than a dog. A scene after character is in the ER after being attacked by a wolf.
The doctor is talking to an MC: The doctor raised an eyebrow. That may seem like a joke to someone like you, but what he does is important. He knows the difference between a domesticated pet dog and a wild wolf. Derek could give a rat's ass. It's quite an assumption that the doctor would think that it's a joke. All he did was express that it was hard to believe. And it speaks of how Derek feels about the vet that he would think a doctor was assuming being a vet is a joke. Who thinks like that? It's harder to get into vet school than med school.
While there may be doctors who think vet school is a joke, the assumption is ridiculous. Besides, plenty of doctors have companion animals they cherish. A character is in the ER and has a window in his room. I have never in my life seen an ER where there is a window in the room, and unfortunately I have seen many, many ERs in my lifetime, including hospitals that have completely remodeled and relocated the ER.
It's in appropriate since it's usually on the ground floor and there often is a lot of blood and gore. There are people trying to get calm and if people can look in the room where they are being poked and prodded, that becomes more difficult. It just makes no sense.
Some timing is off. Someone feels like he is being followed before view spoiler [he starts dating the MC and it's the MC who is being followed and the first guy supposedly only gets followed after he starts dating the MC specifically because he's dating the MC.

In fact, he has to convince his love to do it. Didn't fit at all with the growly protective guy he's supposed to be. View all 6 comments. Jul 22, Ami rated it liked it Shelves: Both characters are nice -- the wolf shifter, Derek, who feels strongly for animals and sometimes have a hard time to control his anger when it comes to human that neglects their pets and the shy vet, Brian, who can actually "talk" to animals. The build-up to their relationship is sweet, considering it involves many scenes with animals -- I'm a sucker when it comes to animals in story, so throw me cats or dogs, and I'm a goner.

It's definitely cutely evil, when Derek bullies a pitbull by threating him that Brian might takes his ability to have offspring. I have to smile widely on that one. Everything is pretty happy dory, even if there is that wolf attack near the end, I don't feel it as strong urgency except a way for Brian to know what Derek is and accept that fact pretty quick, no confrontation.
I guess, story wise, I will give it my usual 3-stars, but all those animals give it an extra 0. This one looks like to be the first of a series, though. I'm definitely look forward to the story of other shifters This was an extremely cute story that left me with a goofy smile in the end. I loved that these characters felt like real people. The details surrounding them was great in the way that you understand who and what the characters look like without going into this long monologue of how they came to be but more important these characters felt like individuals and had their own personalities.
Derek is so violent. He's filled with rage at humans and ultimately hates them. He wants to avenge every abuse This was an extremely cute story that left me with a goofy smile in the end. He wants to avenge every abused animal out there. Brian is so softhearted it's hard to believe he can handle Derek but he's got a little secret that helps him calm Derek when Derek gets into one of his rages. Honestly, these two were adorable together.
They don't change who they are in the end but they come together and you see a new side that's sweet. One of my favorite things about this story is how Derek is able to get animals to reluctantly comply with what he wants. It's funny because he talks to these animals like they are real people and you get the animals response back. On top of that, Brian can 'speak' to animals so while Derek thinks he's being sneaky by telling a pup that he's never going to have babies if he doesn't come along quietly or how Derek 'comes to an understanding' with Brian's pets, Brian gets told just how dirty Derek is willing to play to do his job and make a relationship work with Brian.
My only problem with the book is the conflict. It was over too fast, IMO. I was hoping for something a little more violent or elaborate but, while it was cool to meet a member of the Agency, not much is given on the killing wolf or any of that. Overall, I loved the story. This is no insta-mates book since Derek and Brian have worked together for two years before anything happened which I found interesting.
I liked how they got together and the little funny and cute scenes within it. Looking forward to the rest of the series. I liked this book a lot. The beginning was a little slow for me, I appreciate how well the author reflected how much some people suck in regards to owning animals I was a little bored and depressed by all of that and wondering where the story was going. The story was a lot more interesting once the guys started dating and stuff started happening.

I really liked the guys together they were sweet and cute. Overall this is a very enjoyable light read. The characters were nice enough. The set-up was pretty predictable Overall this was an okay read. Sep 29, Phaney rated it it was ok Shelves: I wonder if this is a first or very early book, since it has that feel to it and that circumstance would mitigate my complaints somewhat.
Then there are some logical blips too. You mean the butt hidden by the long coat? As a description of Brian it does not work. The sparse mentions of his family had made them sound like an animal rights commune. I realize ethnicity or race does not define a person but it seems as though anything the reader would notice just by looking at a character should be included in the way said character is presented.
I guess all animals are people — but only if they reach a certain size, huh? He in general strikes me as a jerk. I wanted so much to like him but he kept foiling my intentions at every turn. But I have to wonder why no one at the hospital calls security on Derek when he storms in, raging like a madman and revelling in his ability to bully and frighten a nurse.

There is nothing particularly new or special about the world created here. It provided a reasonable background to the romance and helped provide a solution to the rogue werewolf threat to Brian and Derek. I was enticed by the pretty Reese Dante cover, but in the end it was a pleasant read that fell a little short for me. Nice review, I think I will skip this one, does not sound like anything out of the ordinary to me. I would hazard a guess that this is a newish writer and possibly a first book in this genre.
