Series: Walk on Wild Side
Also available: Walk on Wild Side Anthology
Rating: (2.75 stars – I liked it ok.)
Dreamspinner’s 2016 Daily Dose anthology includes 30 romantic male/male shifter stories released one a day during the month of June.
Synopsis: After a particularly bad day on the phones, Anthony hits a strange bar to unwind a bit, and hits it hard. The results include a hint of just what kind of bar it is and just what kind of trip that kind of establishment can deliver, but the evening in the bar was just the beginning. Waking up within sweet shits and a hint of feathers takes Anthony to another level of “escape” from work.
Review: While this is another story that is not overly compelling, it was certainly an enjoyable trip. Anthony was very sympathetic, the grind at the end of the day all too real and his attempt to escape and unwind (and overindulge) read well – nicely evocative of the “bad day at a bad job” blues. After an empathetic set up, the journey turns plenty wilder and hotter, with trip into typical/sexy and a bit more fantastic fantasy spiced with sizzle and a bit of imagination.
Recommended for fans of: quick, heated escapes at the end of a long day; bird shifters; frustrated workers looking for some (a bit sizzling) relief.
