The word inexperienced has a picture of Drake Whitton next to it in the dictionary with an inscription of never been kissed and doubt it will ever happen. All that’s about to change though and it’s going to happen rapidly. Drake finds himself lost in a chaotic world of high jacking, injury, shifters, and mad scientists but in all that craziness is Ailean and more than kissing is about to transpire. Warning: Not a stand alone.
This is actually a pretty simple shifter tale with an un-original plot but the deliver was so good! Sometimes it isn’t a matter of what is written but how it’s written. It’s the difference between a tone deaf person and a trained singer, singing the same song. Which would you rather hear? The author further expanded on this by not having your average leading characters.
Sure you get nerdy characters here and there but Drake is different in that he isn’t the diamond in the rough that is just ignorant to what other’s see. Which is normally the case when it comes to nerd characters. Nope, Drake really is the antisocial, too skinny, and really non-awe inspiring nerd. He doesn’t grow into himself, he is who he is. So when you see Ailean look at this normal run of the mill nerd and see awe inspiring, well it gave ump to the story.
Ailean is an interesting character because he really is an asshole, to the point that you might not think he is good enough for Drake however this played well with their connection and you really felt that they balanced each other.
The downside to the book is that it really isn’t a stand alone. I’ve read one other book in this series so I wasn’t completely lost and yet there were still points that I went huh because of missing the previous book. I can only imagine how confusing this might be for someone who hasn’t read any of the stories in the series. It’s still readable but a little difficult to understand because the author weaved in pieces of the other stories. I kind of felt that more detail
should have gone into the background stories or the author shouldn’t have weaved as much as she did.
As far as gay shifter romances go, Accepting His Human is top notch.
