"Luca leaned back into Dash's embrace, feeling the rays of the
dawning sun bond with the heat of Dash's vibrant form. He tilted his neck to feel the warmth of Dash's lips on his crystalline skin. "Why?"
"Because you have found your soul. Now come with me and let me show you the world."
After being attacked by werewolves (off-page), a wounded vampire gets healed by a cat shifter's jizz (!), and they bond. That's it. That was the plot.
This felt more like a rough draft for a full novel rather than a short story that can hold its own. The world building was superficial and a lot of things were being left unexplained.
If this would be a freebie at least, then it would have made for a nice read for a rainy Sunday afternoon. But certainly not for $1.05 (Amazon price at the time of this review).
"I twisted to look at him, squinting."So you knew a Rawlings Handie would get me out of my feelings about no one liking me?"
"So you're like a bisexual Dr. Phil."
Luke shook his head. "You're an idiot."
-> Great bonus short story is great. The doctor approves.
"Is it..." He swallowed. "Are you... totally sure?"
Groves paused, and Tom's thighs trembled.
"Would you like me to double-check?" The doctor's voice was gentle, kindly.
"Oh, god yes," Tom groaned."
The fifth and final book in the Groves' Anatomy series was just a guilty pleasure read as its 4 predecessors, but it was also the most vanilla one.
There wasn't any kink worth mentioning; it was literally just a little fingering and a quick fuck. Hell, there wasn't even a blowjob!
Scarlet Cox, you're better than this. I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed.
