It's a fantasy reader's worst nightmare. You can now turn into a wolf, but your cute neighbor catches you "walking" your dog as a wolf! What can you do? I will be honest, I don't usually read MM romances, but I want to get the whole story with this cute series, Suddenly Shifters. I really enjoyed this short story. There was not a lot of details or steamy scenes, but you know that they are getting their "happy-ever-after" and I guess I mean that in both senses!I
Lucas is out walking his adorable dog as a wolf, when she runs away and finds his neighbor, Shaun. Shaun sees 2 dogs running around and thinks they have escaped from Lucas. Like a good neighbor should, he tries to bring them home but no one answers the door! Now what?
The pace is fast but not super fast and the tone is hopeful with a character oriented storyline that has no steam. The characters are vibrant and engaging, including the dog! I really enjoyed this short story and can't wait to read the next one! Enjoy!.
With more of the same kind of humor that was in the previous book, Something in the Water (the author recommends reading that first, and I agree as there’s a little more setup info there that’s missing in this book), this is another enjoyable entry in the Suddenly Shifters series. As a dog lover, I laughed at how his dog reacted to Lucas suddenly turning into a wolf, and it pulled me quickly into the story. This is more sweet than heat, IMO, as other than a few references to male anatomy, nothing more explicit than a kiss happens.
I did think it was a little too short (this was originally part of an anthology, so there may have been space limitations), as I would have liked a little more background on Shaun, and there was no real progress on the mystery underlying the series of why people are suddenly turning into shifters. Guess I’ll just have to keep reading the series, lol.
Do you enjoy super sweet supernatural romance stories that are beyond adorable and have a cute dog? Then this is the book for you! it is the book to read when everything is gloomy because the cuteness will chase those clouds away!
Lucas has a pretty normal life--a job as a bartender, a crush on a guy who doesn't know he exists, a dog that loves him, and a homeowner's association that thinks his yard isn't up to snuff--until he unexpectedly develops the ability to shift into a wolf.
This is a very short little "book" (isn't everything a book on kindle?), so it's a quick read. It made me smile on a day that had been frustrating and very blah. I'm still smiling.
See, once he is sure he can reliably choose whether to be four-footed or two, Lucas can't resist going out for a run with his dog--well, if you could shift, would you be able to resist? I wouldn't! But of course, in a neighborhood with Rules, including against dogs running loose, they are noticed, and ... well, you can probably guess who finds the two of them, and when Lucas' doorbell is not answered, takes them home with him to keep them (and their "owner") out of trouble. And that's as close to offering spoilers as this reviewer will get.
I really enjoyed this story and I'm looking forward to the next one in this setting. Each book features at least one person who suddenly becomes a shifter, and who wants a little romance. Also, I want to know what is causing this shifting thing--is it actually, as the characters quip, "in the water"? So far, there's only questions--and romance.
So my biggest letdown with the book is only that's it's to short. If you haven't read the rest of the series there's something in the water of the town that is turning people into shifters. Lucas can now turn into a wolf. Which isn't so bad until he goes for a run with his dog and they end up caught by his attractive neighbor. So now Lucas needs to sneak away without giving away his new secret.
This is a short story so there's not a lot of substance, but I did enjoy watching these two men start off their relationship. I do really enjoy the concept of the series and am excited to see more shifted townspeople and maybe we'll see some old favorites again as well.
I read this previously when it was part of a box set with other short stories.
