Fox shifter Luke runs Foxy’s Chicken Shack, known for the best and spiciest chicken in town. For months he’s had his eye on Silas, a young cop who patrols the area around his restaurant. When Silas arrives to question Luke about his cousins’ criminal activities, things blow up, literally, and Silas is injured. Luke will do whatever it takes to see his cousins brought to justice. He might not survive his crazy plan, but if he does, there could be a chance at love for this fox shifter and his cop.
Dinner at Foxy’s is the third book in the Law and Supernatural Order series. I have not read the first two books and this can be read as a stand-alone because Ms. Violet does a nice job explaining the characters from the others books who appear in this one.
Silas is a green police officer who wants to be the youngest detective in his division. He is smart and driven but doesn’t have a lot of experience as a cop. He meets sexy fox shifter Luke at the restaurant Foxy’s Chicken Shark that Luke owns and operates. They both experience serious insta-lust. While Silas isn’t DTF, he considers having a fling with Luke:
Problem is I want a relationship with someone who isn’t an asshole or a cheater or who thinks my wanting to be dominated in bed means I like to be ordered around when we aren’t fucking.
Silas needs to interview Luke for a case he is working on that concerns Luke’s criminal cousins and while he is at the Chicken Shack, Luke’s uncle throws a bomb into the building, injuring Silas. Enter hurt/comfort. The two men fight their attraction for a short time then give into the lust that quickly turns to love.
“One more thing,” I say, my gaze never leaving his hand.
There’s a catch in his voice.
“I like to be in charge in bed. Are you good with that?”
“Oh God, yes.”
I love a good shifter book and the world building around it and I did enjoy this book, but it was more PWP than a character study of two men falling in love amidst enemies trying to kill them. The sex was hot and plentiful, but the book wasn’t long enough for me to feel the emotional connection between these two.
If you are looking for an interesting paranormal tale with some hot sex, this book is for you. If you want more of the mystery of the shifter world and intense chemistry, you should pass.
