The Rock Star’s Familiar (Familiar Mates #3) by T.J. Nichols

Good Reads


All he wants is to be loved, but no one trusts a snake…

Ten years ago, Dylan Lynch left home against his mother’s wishes to pursue a music career. Now he’s riding the waves of being a rock star with number one albums and more money than he ever imagined, and he did it without using his deadly magic. But when his brother dies, Dylan knows it’s only a matter of time until he is summoned home to take his place as heir to a business he doesn’t want.
Eamon Cutler is a snake shifter working as an enforcer for the Lynch family, hex witches who grant wishes with a price to be collected in the future. Usually he is sent after humans who welch on their side of the deal. But when he’s sent after Dylan, a man he has wanted from afar and admired for his willingness to stand up to his family, Eamon questions his career path.
The attraction between Eamon and Dylan simmers, but both are reluctant to give in. Hex witches don’t sleep with shifters, and if Eamon wants to keep his job—and his life—he shouldn’t sleep with the boss’s son.
But to find freedom, some rules must be broken.

For readers who like fated mates, fake relationships and road trips where there’s only one bed.


I wanted to love this so hard! Because – rockstars, snakes, bad boys in vegas…
But, instead.

This frustrated me to no end. There is NO rock star moment. None. Dylan doesn’t act at all like a famous rock star. And the premise of fake boyfriend is ridiculous to the nth degree.

Eamon could be amazing and cool but instead he does things that make me crazy and not supportive of his character. IE the biting.

The only redeeming thing I can find in this is the way they solve the mother “problem”. I quite enjoyed that!
