Deputy Roman Charsguard survived Afghanistan where he lost his best friend—his K-9 handler James. Roman was a military dog until two years ago when he developed the ability to shift into a human. It’s not easy to learn how to be a man. He found a place to live in Mad Creek, a haven for the secret world of dog shifters. Finding a reason to live has been harder. That is, until a certain human walks into the Mad Creek Sheriff’s office and starts making trouble.
Matt Barclay has the worst luck. First he was shot in a SWAT drug raid, then he was sent as DEA investigator to Mad Creek, a little town in the California mountains. Matt’s job is to keep a lookout for illegal drug farms, but nobody in the town wants him there. And then there’s Roman, Matt’s erstwhile baby-sitter. He’s the hottest guy Matt’s ever seen, even if he is a bit peculiar. If the town doesn’t kill him, sexual frustration just might.
The town is counting on Roman to prevent Matt from learning about dog shifters, Matt’s counting on Roman to be his work partner and tell him the truth, and Roman’s trying to navigate love, sex, and a whole lot of messy human emotions. Who knew it was so complicated to walk like a man?
I absolutely, unequivocally, hard-core LOVE and ADORE this story! Eli Easton – THANK YOU!! Because this? This was PHENOMENAL!
In my review for How To Walk Like a Man I wrote the only thing that will make this better is when Matthew Shaw does the narration for the audio book.
And I was absolutely right.
Matthew Shaw’s sophomore effort proves he wasn’t a flash in the pan, one time rock star. He gives a performance like a virtuoso, playing the characters brilliantly and bringing this story to life! I absolutely LOVED how he made each dog breed “sound” like you would expect their breed to sound – it was awesome!
Timing, sound quality, character voices, cadence – it was all fantastic. It doesn’t hurt that this series gets better with each story.
This is brilliant, funny, sexy, and heartwarming. Coupled with Matthew Shaw’s narration How to Walk Like a Man has it all! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
