This book was reviewed for Netgalley
Gun for hire Jed Walker doesn't figure it for a difficult job-a simple smash and grab retrieval-except his new client doesn't want money or goods. He wants shy, gorgeous Redford Reed, a man who turns Jed's world upside down inside a day. He is in no way prepared to fall hard and fast for his newest assignment.
Redford Reed lives his life locked in his grandmother's house, haunted by a terrible curse and watching the world pass him by until Jed shows up, sent by a man who will stop at nothing to claim Redford as his own. Teaming up with Jed is Redford's only chance at survival, but as the violence escalates, so does the tension between them. Even though they each finally have something to live for, now it's going to take all Jed's skill and every bit of courage Redford has just to stay alive.
I loved this book, it is a different slant on the whole werewolf thing. Red is in no way an alpha type and is sweet and quiet and desperately in need of taking care of. Jed is all more alpha but likes to be taken by an alpha. Together they work because they open up other parts of each-other. The story was thrilling and exciting and watching the relationship develop was really nice. I liked that at the end Red didn't go all alpha just became a bit more confident.The tie up was good and I liked that it was not hurried. I have to say though I now want to now more about David and hope that we get a second book with him as the star.
