Blurb: Cat shifter Gage is an impossible bottom. No one has ever been able to tame him, even if he wants them to. He’s willing to keep trying, though, and when he finds out about the paranormal dating site Full Moon Dating, he puts himself in their hands. He longs for someone who will take him in hand and make him like it.
Hamish is a bear shifter who plays too rough for most subs. Gage sounds like just what he needs, so when Full Moon matches them up, he’s happy to see how they get along. Can he convince Gage that he’s the one to make the man toe the line?
Review: Gage and Hamish is actually the first book in this series that I’ve read. They are each stand-alones, really, connected by the dating agency that brings the characters together, so they can also be read in any order. I am a fan of this author’s Bloodrose series, so I jumped at the chance to read this.
Gage is a high-strung cat shifter who is more than a pushy bottom. He cannot seem to find the right guy to dominate him and give him what he needs. To that end, he contacts Full Moon Dating to hopefully find a shifter who matches up with him.
Hamish is a bear shifter who appears to be a big cuddly teddy bear, but really he likes things a bit rough, and he’s also had a hard time finding the right partner. Everyone thinks he’s a big marshmallow, and no one seems to take him seriously. He contacts Full Moon Dating also hoping for a match.
Gage and Hamish meet for dinner at a sushi place, and they really hit it off. They enjoy their meal and decide to go for a walk when they run into trouble. They manage to escape and end up at Hamish’s house. Gage is skeptical and tries to fight Hamish, but it turns out Hamish knows exactly what Gage needs, and he’s determined to give it to him. What follows is a very hot encounter that leave both feeling quite satisfied.
No spoilers, but let’s say the path to an HEA is not so smooth and straight forward for these two, but this is definitely one hot and wild ride. Gage is not easily won, and Hamish has to work for his kitty. 🙂 There is also plenty of fun and snarky banter to keep things lively.
I really liked this short and very hot story – so much so that I promptly went out and bought the rest of the stories in this series. I’d recommend this one for anyone who likes an erotic short story with an HEA.
