Oliver is quite a complex character - open about his sexuality in the off hours, but deeply closeted in a professional setting. Although we don't get a whole lot of backstory on any of the characters in this book (maybe in the sequels?) we learn enough about Oliver to understand what makes him tick. Connor is more of a cipher, but that is by design. We learn about the werewolf society (Logan's Court) bit by bit as Oliver does. One thing that is very clear - sex and sensuality are very much integral to the wolves and their interactions.
The world-building is nicely done here as well. This is a society where magic exists and is a fact of life. Dirty clothes are taken care of by laundry wards, and cocktails are served with anti-intoxication potions mixed in. At the same time, there are cars, computers, and cell phones. The setting is built organically - not a whole lot of exposition going on. This doesn't always work for me, but it definitely fit in here. Also, although this is ostensibly a shifter story, very little of this plays into the plot except to define the different societies (and associated prejudices).
A large portion of the book is taken up by Oliver needing to pose as Connor's consort to interview a key witness. As a plot device it's a little flimsy, but the attraction, temptation, and intimate pas-de-deux between Connor and Oliver is hotter than hell and kept my attention throughout! The mystery is resolved nicely and while the ending is a bit unexpected (in a good way) it sets the stage for future stories, although this book is self-contained.
I liked this one a lot. Recommended!
(Side note: Ugh, that cover. I know I’m not the target demographic but that’s over the top. The way these guys are described, neither of them works out or does anything that would be necessary to maintain ridiculous chiseled abs like that. Ah well...)
Lyra Evans I want to follow you!
The murder investigation takes center stage with Oliver and Conner along for the ride. The world building is there, interesting politics, well paced plot, and enticing mystery. So many positives in this story and they come together beautifully. Oliver and Conner's relationship is icing on the cake. If you enjoy magic, shifters, romance, and solving a mystery, this one is worth reading. - Dan's Wife
Engaging plot, likable MCs, and chemistry that was seriously off the charts. The whole thing was super hot, and generally fun and engaging. I could easily see this becoming a series.
I will say that I thought the world was a little confusing--it took me awhile to realize that there weren't regular humans at all, and that this wasn't taking place on Earth, or at least not as we know it. Could have used some fleshing out, but it wasn't too hard to follow along.
Rarely do you find a novel with such an intriguing plot and well-written erotica through-out. I am so so satisfied with taking a chance on this author, and will be keeping an eye out for more of Lyra Evans in the future!

It was okay.
I would have been more into the plot if I hadn't read too many books in the genre and this plot was too predictable for me.
I did enjoy the world and magic but murder mystery was too plain. I guessed the murderer right away. Too many plot holes.
Not the worst but not the best either. Not sure I will continue with the series. This one can be read as stand alone.
I made this one of my first books to read from Amazon, and I was surprised. It captivated me from start to end so much that I read the whole book in one day! I'm not a mystery fan but the way it plays out in the plot made it very intriguing and I adored the main characters personality. Will be buying book 2 tonight!
