I liked this book quite a bit more than I expected I would. Which sounds rather unfair as I’ve really liked all the previous Dreamspun Desires books I’ve read. I think I forget how good they are. This book is tropetastic in all the best ways. Donnie is sort of a too stupid to live character, but he manages to save the day with his craziness and friends. William is a wounded hero. There’s love at first sight. There’s even some hurt/comfort.
Okay, now all those tropes I laid out also had some reality thrown at them. Well, as much reality as you can get in a paranormal romance about a super-spy/college professor. Donnie did ping a little too stupid to live, but he also had a lot of regrets about his actions. Donnie was aware his mistakes put others in danger and had a lot of guilt. William’s wounded hero aspects were grounded in very tragic happenings. Bad things had happened to him and he didn’t want a repeat. Donnie immediately knew he wanted William and that felt a bit like love at first sight, but as it turns out these guys didn’t really hit it off too quickly in any way beyond attraction. Donnie and William spend a good portion of the book sparring verbally and emotionally. Lust at first sight is all fine and dandy but the love took a bit longer.
This book isn’t overly complicated, it’s not mind blowing, it’s not a Reading Experience, but I really enjoyed it. I had fun reading this book! I feel like fun books get hugely underestimated. This will be a book I reread and will heartily recommend to anyone interested in paranormal who is looking for a fun and entertaining read.
Much to his family’s disdain, coyote shifter Donnie Granger works in a diner. In his perfect world, he’d go to culinary school and open up a bakery. In their world, he’d join them in the oil fields. Despite this discord, family is family and when it comes down to it, they are there when he needs it. And he needs it. Not for himself, but for his major crush—the hottie professor he’s only just gotten up the nerve to talk to, feed...and save?
William is a buffalo shifter with a past. He’s not as obvious in his interest in Donnie and with good reason (I won’t give that away). Suffice it to say, he’s in protector mode and Donnie, being both hyper and headstrong, doesn’t want any part of being coddled. He wants to help. He’s determined to help, and this provided some really hot angst. Until it didn’t. There came a time when William’s hard line colliding with Donnie’s battering ram detracted from the story instead of adding to it.
Still, once Donnie gives up trying to convince William that he can help, he decides to just take matters into his own hands. It’s a huge risk with a lot of people involved and, despite all the push/pull, it works. But, does that mean they’ll live happily ever after? Well, yeah, but you have to read it to find out why.
Donnie is such a lovable goofball. He's smart, funny, and impulsive - every bit the coyote. He's a perfect foil for William, a stoic and taciturn professorial-type. The sparks between the two of them are so fun to read as they waver between "I can't keep away from you!" and "You annoy the crap out of me!" I really enjoyed seeing the relationship evolve between the two. I think it's a great endorsement that I was invested enough in Donnie and William that I was in tears as they reached their Happily Ever After (Spoiler? Not likely!). They really are a sweet couple. The side characters are quite entertaining too, even if most of them have little time on the page. Donnie's best friend Ford stands out, not only as a smart and pragmatic guy, but also an intriguing type of shifter. I would guess we'll be seeing more of Ford in the next book in this series.
The one place where the plot breaks down a bit is the international espionage element. It just seemed a little over the top. It's well-written and keeps things moving along well enough that it's a minor annoyance, though.
I'll give this one 4.25 out of 5, and I eagerly await the next book in the series!
