Daphne is a Doe who shifted for the first time. She won't shift back until she meets her mate. As the Deer tradition, her family gathers on Halloween for her to go on her own and not return until she's mated and pregnant.
Daphne never looked forward to shifting. She doesn't want a mate, she wants to join the Olympics and compete. When she goes into the forest for the first time, she can hear that someone else is out there. When she involuntarily shifts back to human form, she is standing backed to a man. But she's not sure that he's a buck.
Daphne shifting means that she's found her mate, but the man in front of her isn't a buck. But she can't return home until the Spring or she will bring shame on her family. So she stays in Leo's cabin in the woods with him.
Realizing that they both are in love with each other, the truth comes out from a jealous ex girlfriend of his.
Can they be mates and be accepted?
There were a few things I didn't care for, but these are all personal taste. I'm including them only so that others who share those tastes know. I'm not saying the book is bad; it's a fine story. I didn't like it for a few reasons. Obviously, don't read any further if you don't want to be spoiled.
1. The mixed types of weres needs to have an explanation for why fate (and the book all-but states it's fate) put these two together. Again, they're a fine couple, but *why* did her magic or whatever pick him?
2. The hunters that are aware that there are shapeshifters in the woods and hunt them anyway. The does have a tell, and hunters know they're killing what are basically people. I couldn't conceive of why that was allowed to persist. We have people in the real world get upset about puppies getting mistreated; why wouldn't PETA or even the bucks be helping the does?
3. The defenselessness of the does doesn't make sense. Real deer can mess someone up if cornered; even if they prefer to run, they can fight for their lives. Daphne's culture might have sheltered her, but if that was the intention, it didn't come through the text.
4. The emphasis on virginity. I do like that Daphne kinda stops caring as much about this, but as a culture, the purity of virgins is overrated.
5. Any woman after Leo was mean or a skank. I can't stand when a woman is built up by tearing other women down, no matter the reason.
If you don't mind or if you like the above points, then definitely pick up this book! It's a fine read.

Found it weird that her herd were good with her going out into the woods despite all the hunters around.
A quick and easy one time read. Very fluffy, not much else I can say about this one.
The romance involves a lot of looking and touching but is for adults.
I had the immense pleasure of reading these stories in the box set collection that Kristen released in April, so to see my full review, please visit Colorado Shifters: The Complete Series.
