The paranormal world is in chaos. The elders are tired of their younger people playing the field, causing trouble, and fighting with each other. Everyone who attends the UPAC Conference now has twenty-four hours to claim a mate of a different species. If they don't, they will never have a mate. The spell is cast. There is no escaping the Midnight Matings. Software developer Gavin Ashby is perfectly happy with his life. He finds other people annoying after being around them for only a short period of time, and having a mate sounds like pure torture to him. Video game tester Ant Marino is satisfied with his quiet, solitary life. After being accosted and almost forcibly mated, he meets the aloof but handsome Gavin. Neither Ant nor Gavin are prepared for the feelings that arise. Will the two men continue to dance around each other or will they pounce on love and never let it go.
I am a sucker for unusual shifters and it is even better and here we get a mouse shifter (yay!) and lion shifter.
Ant and Gavin. Here is the thing. Gavin is a jerk. Now, he was raised to be that way but it is still annoying. However, he does learn and improve. But, yeah, he is mean and knee jerk to often.
Ant is much better character. Willing to make the best of a bad situation and supportive. Brave.
We get to spend time with the Pride which really who cares? Jerky Pride. Politics. Bleh.
I would have loved to spend time in mouse culture with the Mischief.
So, not great but I might try another in this multi author series because bunny shifter.
