A werewolf who’s been running from his past…
meets a dragon shifter who wants nothing more than to protect him.
Life hasn’t been kind to Tommy. Abandoned by his parents as a teenager after being bitten by a werewolf, abused by the alpha he turned to for help, and, most recently, having to deal with the after-effects of a hunter kidnapping all by himself, it’s no wonder he wants to put his past behind him. Now, at twenty-three, he’s made a life for himself as a trusted nanny and babysitter in the shifter community doing what he loves. He may spend too much time looking over his shoulder, but Tommy’s fine. He’s dealing. Or so he tells himself.
Michael is a dragon shifter in law enforcement. He was the one who helped rescue Tommy from hunters… and since then hasn’t been able to get him off his mind. When Michael gets a frantic call one evening from a terrified Tommy, he learns that Tommy’s ex, an older alpha werewolf, has just been released from prison and wants Tommy back. Michael offers his help without hesitation, but the more time he spends with Tommy the more his attraction grows, and the last thing Michael wants is to make Tommy feel forced into a relationship.
All Michael wants to do is help Tommy feel safe. But can he protect Tommy while keeping his own feelings at bay?
Meh. This didn’t do it for me. I found Tommy really tedious and the relationship between him and Michael didn’t ever feel more than a “daddy” relationship which is not comfortable for me.
I do enjoy the world building though.
