ROGUE RESCUE Series
Saving lives is their mission.
Saving each other will be far more dangerous.
ROGUE RESCUE is a companion series to GRIZZLY RIM.
f I thought the first book was choppy in comparison this one simply flowed.
Jay and Pete grew up together. They share everything, just not what they feel toward each other. They are dolphin shifters, so it figures that they are mischievous and prone to pranks.
There is no hard edge of arousal in this story like in first one, this one was softer and gentler. They know each other. They are close but still unsure in each other and if they want to be more than they already are to each other. So they hover on a bring of something and need a push from outside to start something.
The storyline was pretty flat until the last third which managed to interest me in the book once again. Both Jay and Pete make some changes in their lives. The only thing constant is their devotion to each other.
They got their happy end and while I didn’t like this one as much as the first, it was solid read.
