“To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction.” – Sir Isaac Newton (Third Law of Motion)
Blurb: Wanted: one bear. Must be burly and hairy, and strong enough to paddle. Hunter Bell is on the prowl, and he knows just where to find his prey: at the Bear Trap, a gay leather bar he’s more than a little familiar with. So many men, so little time. He’s just about to pounce on his choice of the evening when a newcomer enters the bar, turning everyone’s head. Adrian Michaels is everything Hunter despises in a man. He’s lean and boyish looking, and he has the deepest dimples Hunter’s ever seen.
And yet there is an immediate attraction, one that neither man can deny. They’re both too astonished to do anything about this apparent interest in one another, and they waste their opportunity. Now it’s up to Hunter to forget about his stereotypical preference and go for the guy that’s just entered his dreams. If only he can admit to himself that Adrian’s what he really wants…
Review: Hunter’s Hunt is a bear and cub story. No, not the bear that lives in the woods but a large hairy man who likes other large hairy men who will submit to him.
Hunter is the stereotypical bear, large and hairy. He likes his men to be the same, but submissive. One night Hunter’s at his favorite local leather bar and in walks his total opposite. Adrian’s car breaks down and he finds himself in the same bar as Hunter. He’s physically opposite to Hunter but still catches his eye. Hunter proceeds to help him and there you have the set up for their story.
The relationship followed the standard theme for these types of stories, which, for me, made the sex feel a bit predictable. I liked the lead characters, they were well written and had no major flaws to create conflict, but I felt like I’d read this story a dozen times before and with marginally better results.
Hunter’s Hunt was a decent read, not bad at all, engaging enough for me, but with no new or interesting twists, it was missing that extra spark that would have made it hard to put down.
