John and Mykhail meet under some rather confusing circumstances. John catches Mykhail raiding their garden and insulting the family tomatoes. In this post-apocalyptic world, there is no longer the use of electricity and every man for himself.
John and Mykhail have an obvious immediate attraction to one another. John can barely breathe when they are in the same room. He gets mixed messages from Mykhail in return.
Meanwhile, there are more surprises outside of their little farm. John's family accepts him and that stuns Mykhail since he no longer has one. He wants to go back out and locate a college professor of his who he believes can solve this energy crisis. They embark on a journey alone together to the college to see the professor.
On the way to the college, John finds out that Mykhail has feelings for him too. He has just never acted on them with anyone before and is uncertain. John is still feeling out of sorts since he has a past with men who cannot be trusted.
So much going on and several surprises for the reader in this book! It is entertaining and charming to read. This is book # 2 in the Off The Grid Series. Cannot wait to see what is next! I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Hart is a good writer, with an evocative style. It's great that this is full of multicultural characters. But I gave this 3.5/5.0 stars, because it's not really to my personal taste. I find I like straight contemporary romance less and less, and the romances are more HFN than HEA (which is not my personal preference). Overall, I think readers who enjoy the current small town romance series would like this very much.

Wolf's Haven is a novella that is currently free on amazon.
Tamara has been in an abusive relationship and has decided to make a break for it. On the night of her escape things have gone poorly but lucky for her she meets Devin who is willing to hide her and help her. Then they find love.
The story suffers from a lack of character development. The set up was done nicely but we don't really see any reason for the transformation. For example why would a woman who has been in an abusive relationship fall in love with a virtual stranger in five days? Why was Devin drawn to Tamara? Outside of the fact she is beautiful and kind. Honestly I think the book was just to short. I think if it was a full length novel these ideas would have been flushed out.
Oh and there are editing issues. A few misused words. One minute the shifter changes to being a man and he is fully clothed but another time he shows up naked...so which is it? There were also some incomplete plot threads for example a sister who is 9 and a brother who is 17 yet no one seems to have custody of them? That works in the beginning but it seemed like they would become Devin's responsibility but at the end I am not even sure what happened to them.
Loved the idea of the story and I hope the author goes back and turns it into a novel.
