appears as the couple make love in the great outdoors. Will the big cat cause
more trouble than the lovers can handle? Or will a twist of fate and nature add
some spice to the lover's weekend?
Jack and Samuel are committed partners who’ve had a hard week at work and
head off to their lakeside cabin for some much needed rest and relaxation. They
get the surprise of their life during an outdoor lovemaking romp, a cougar. The
big cat is a shape shifter and old lover from Jack’s past, Clint, who just wants
to join in the fun. Is three better than two or will it be more than Samuel can
I was pleasantly surprised by how well balanced and detailed this novella was. You don’t get an in depth look at the characters but the details give you a
good idea of what each man is about. Jack is shown as the more dominate force in
the relationship. Samuel is more skittish and shy. Throw easy-going Clint
into the mix seemed as though it would rock the boat but the author wrote it out well. Out of the book I really understood Samuel more, not just because it’s from his point of view. He, out of all of them, has the most growth in the book, from insecure to confident.
The whole book is very even paced and while it had it’s torrid moments I
never felt it overtook the story. There were some small mistakes in the love
making scenes but they were miniscule enough to ignore. There isn’t
really any angst but the emotional play of Clint being an ex-lover and shape
shifter kept it from being too raunchy or mushy. I wish the story had been
longer because I liked the characters and I could see so much potential for
them. I don’t think it went to the level that it could have gone. It was still a
really good read that I would recommend for those looking for a quick and sweet read.
