Chemistry major Kelly Hendrick has lusted after his analytical chemistry professor Simon Randall for a several semesters. They share common interests in reading, fencing, and, of course, their chosen career field.
Now several semesters past being Dr. Randall’s student, Kelly finally dares to cross the line and pursue his attraction to the professor. He finds the feeling reciprocated, but there are deep, more than human secrets in Kelly’s life.
An assault on Simon forces Kelly to confront the idea that Simon needs to know more if they’re going to be together. Can Kelly own up to non-human genetics and still maintain his growing relationship with Simon?
I adore A.R. Moler. Most of her books are on my favorites list and NO ONE does hurt/healing/comfort like she does. This blurb sounded wonderful and I looked forward to the shifter world building and May/December romance. I also LOVE shifter books where one partner doesn’t know the other is a shifter. Push those buttons blurb!
But… at 47 pages this book did not deliver. No world building, no backstory, all interactions between the main characters were already in the past by the first page of the book. The book TOLD us but didn’t SHOW us. It was rushed and far too short to be anything other than a disappointment.
Golden hurt/healing/comfort shifter opportunity missed.
