The blurb

Bryan Monroe has always catalogued his life in terms of moments—right moments, wrong moments, perfect moments. But when his best friend and partner on the police force, Chrys Delos, is shot in a raid gone bad, it’s one of the worst moments of Bryan’s life.

Bryan’s been secretly in love with Chrys for years, and the shooting is a wake-up call that it might be time to tell Chrys the truth. The problem is, Bryan’s never been with a man before, so in addition to worrying about Chrys’ injuries, he’s an indecisive wreck over the future.

But with the help of two unlikely matchmakers, Bryan knows it’s time to find the courage, and the perfect moment, to tell Chrys exactly how he feels…

Our thoughts

4 stars

This is a great little short to get you out of a book slump.  Two cops. Best friends. One gay.  One straight.  As a ‘gay for you’ read it felt quite real.  We start the book where Bryan admits he has feelings for his best friend and cop partner Chrys, so we don’t go through the whole ‘coming to terms’ with it drama.  I loved the angle of this story – when is the perfect moment for Bryan to tell Chrys he loves him?  He desperately needs to tell Chrys how he feels but it’s never the right time.  When Chrys is shot in the shoulder and is recuperating at home, Bryan doesn’t tell him.  He kisses him instead.  Perfect moment.

“I’d have a lot of regrets.  Just because I haven’t been with a man before doesn’t mean I can’t be.  Do you want to know what I was thinking about earlier, you know, when you kissed me?”

“Hopefully kissing me again?”

Bryan moaned as he remembered.  “Throwing you against the wall.  Kissing you until you couldn’t breathe.”

 

Grab a cuppa and enjoy a lovely, full of emotion short read.

Tabby’s Pride by K-lee Klein

Rock stars and shifters make a great combination!

Tabby's Pride

Tabby’s Pride

by K-lee Klein

The blurb…

Levi Tabberton has dreamed of being a rock star ever since his brother’s best friend, Alexander Morrison, showed him his guitar when he was young. But becoming a member of his boyhood crush’s band, Lion’s Pride, is even more important.

Growing up, Levi emulated Alexander, and now, years later, that feeling remains when he auditions for the band. Xan is laidback, caring, gorgeous, and takes Levi under his wing—or rather, his paw. But Levi’s guilt and insecurity hold him back from letting Xan see the real him.

Levi needs to prove himself worthy of the band and deserving of Xan’s attention, but the lengths to which he’s gone have left him reeling with anxiety and exhaustion. Levi’s not sure how much longer he can pull off his charade to reach his goals and to keep Xan’s affections.

Has he made the right choice by putting on an act, or will his dreams fade in a catastrophe of lies and uncertainty?

So what did I think?

This shifter story was a little bit of fun! The shifter plus the rock star element was an interesting combination especially when Tabby/Levi’s secret is added into the mix. Levi is desperate to join the band, Lion’s Pride, that his childhood friend Xan is a member of, so desperate that he has gone to extreme lengths to do so.

The story follows the growing relationship between Levi and Xan and the struggles Levi faces as he battles the physical effects resulting from his actions and the mental anguish of deceiving his lover.

This is more a typical romance where not a lot of shifting actually happens although the fact these guys are shifters is key to the story. For that reason, this book might make a good ‘starter’ story for for someone who is new to the genre and wants to check it out.

It was entertaining and had a cute twist at the end. 3.5 stars

Happy reading!
