Ex. Logan Maddox is looking for John Tillman, Cora's brother, the pilot.
"Logan shrugged. “You like math, Cora?”
She smiled at him. “Math likes me. Which is good because I want to be a pilot.”
“You need calculus for that?” Was her brother a math whiz?
“Maybe not. But it can’t hurt.”
“No, it can’t.”
Will was sending him an exasperated look that said, You done yet?
“Believe I’ll take a short hike. You interested, Will?”
“Um, no. I mean, I was gonna ask Mr. Maddox about some stuff when he gets back.”
“Where’d he go?”
“Went to check for fish,” Cora said.
“Ah, well. I’ll be back in a bit. You guys okay?”
The story felt very one dimensional for me. John is hired to take Logan and his son out to hunt. In agreeing to be their guide, he inadvertently has to take his sister with him on the job since there's no one else to look after her. John and Logan are closeted but during the hunting trip get to know a bit about each other and start an affair.
There wasn't much happening in the story. I can't say there was a lot of character building or plot. I wanted to know more about the individual shifters. Readers don't really get much information on them and what little we do get was interesting but didn't quite quench my thirst for more.
The emotional moment with Cora and John after Cora's little joyride made a big impact on me. It livened up the whole story for me. The relationship development between John and Logan was a bit of a sensual experience with their fiery attraction for each other.
Logan and Will's nonchalant easy acceptance of shifters seemed a bit off to me but at the same times I really liked how accepting they were.
Ok...when I first read the blurb for this, I thought it sounded interesting, but I have to admit that I didn't expect it to grab me as much as it did.
John is an eagle shifter who is a pilot in Alaska. His parent died a number of years prior causing him to raise his younger sister, Cora. Logan is a veteran who lost his legs. He has had prosthetic legs for a couple of years and he still struggles with the loss. He took his son Will on a hunting trip and hired John to take them out. There is attraction between the men and they eventually end up getting together.
There could have been a little bit more character development for John and Logan (we know some background of them, but not a whole lot, especially for Logan), but there wasn't a lot of room for it considering it was a shorter story. I also would've liked a little more explanation into the personalities of Cora and Will. What I did love, though, was the reveal of John's eagle. It was a bit crazy, but the story line seemed to fit with what I knew about Cora and John as siblings, and it showed how much he loved her and was willing to do what needed to be done for her, even when he was mad beyond belief.
I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected and I am definitely going to be looking forward to the other books in the series. I want to know about Dmitri! :-)
I really enjoyed this story! The setting of Alaska was beautifully detailed and seemed a perfect choice for John and his group of shifter friends (of assorted animal varieties) that you meet at the beginning of the story, with the clear sense that the vast wilderness lets them be free to exist in human and animal form. Both John and Logan have interesting backstories, and I particularly liked how Logan's disability was realistically featured in all aspects of his journey into the Alaskan wilderness as well as how it impacted his sexual self. Logan is divorced and has just recently come out of the closet - how lucky for him to meet handsome, rugged, single John right off the hop! The sexual attraction between them is clear from when they first meet but they are very circumspect around the teenagers and when they do get some alone time together, their scenes are flirty and hot, with some deeper emotions quickly following suit.
I also liked how the shifting was described, the mechanics of the physical transformation and the mental changes as well. There was some interesting politics regarding a shifter's responsibilities in having sex with non shifters. It's up to Logan to decide what he wants for his future, but it becomes pretty clear that if John is willing, he'll be all in. The story is told from the points of view of both men, and with that we also get a good glimpse into their emotional states and their strong but sure feelings for each other. There was a very satisfactory happy ending, and a glimpse at where the series is headed to next. 5 stars for a sexy and very entertaining read!
