Nat was an ordinary cop who really has a heart of gold, but who had been bullied, criticized, and put down so much that he doesn't really see much value in himself. Journey is an asexual wolf shifter who was tortured to force him into a fighting ring, and rescued by Nat during a police raid. As the two of them get to know one another, Nat's feelings of low self value only become exacerbated as Journey says he likes Nat, but has no strong sexual inclinations. Nat, at first, takes this personally and both he and Journey end up being hurt through their assumptions.
Once they learn to communicate with each other, it gets better, but perfect is a long, slow process. This was a very slow burn, low heat book. It was, at times, frustrating and delightful, but it ended with a very hopeful and happy outlook.
Nathaniel North has this Awkward Guy is Awkward way about him I loved. He grew up that Jewish kid with the weird mom who bailed on him, leaving him with his decidedly straight-laced father who had no idea what to do with him. He's got a lot of hang-ups about himself. He knows why he's failed in relationships in the past so it makes sense why he's so cautious to enter into a new one. I loved how he allowed Journey to help him heal from the loss of his father. Grief can be all consuming. It was nice to see Journey shoulder dealing with his father's things so he wouldn't have to bear up that burden alone.
Journey Strong -Yes, that's a name.- made me smile even from the beginning when he was so wounded I wasn't sure he'd survive without some kind of permanent injuries. I loved his jealousy of the vet, Oliver Green, and I loved the way he trusted Nat with everything about him. He is the first asexual shifter or character in the Shifters and Partners series; it was interesting to see how he explained his lack of interest in sex by equating it to how Nat enjoyed running with him while he was a wolf even if he had no idea what it was like to be a wolf himself. Everyone does things for their lovers to please them. It doesn't mean they're being harmed or taken advantage of because it is definitely possible to enjoy knowing you've been the one to please your lover.
Journey is another standalone in the Shifters and Partners series. It's got a very, very strong hurt/comfort element as well as dealing with the loss of a parent on the part of Nat. I would recommend it to any reader who enjoys an emotional read. Please note there's not any really explicit sexual content as Journey is an asexual character so this is a very sweet romance.
