Donovan is the new guy in town, a polar shifter, harboring a big secret. He’s a big city bear who moved to the tiny town of Forgotten, Wyoming, in hopes of finding peace. What he finds is poison ivy and angry wasps.
TJ, a grizzly shifter, is the local doctor with a past. He’s found a home in the country, but lacks happiness and a sense of belonging. The fact that he’s in the midst of his natural mating season doesn’t help in the least. The moment Donovan enters TJ’s clinic, sparks fly. TJ is determined to resist the temptation that is Donovan, but his inner bear and Donovan have other ideas.
When a hunter starts going after shifters and a blast from Donovan’s past show up for revenge, things get hot. But not as hot as the attraction between Donovan and TJ. If they can pull together and survive, they just might discover that, while they might be polar opposites, sometimes opposites do attract.
This story seemed to aim for enemies to lovers feels but it felt short on that end as there was no sparks between heroes. But they were charming together and I was soon rooting for them. The inner bear’s commentary is hilarious. It adds to funny undertone of the story as Donovan and TJ circle each other under avid gazes of town matchmakers.
Donovan is new in town. He is city bear and struggled adopting to living in a small town in middle of nowhere even though he enjoys nature. TJ on the other hand has been in town for several years and up until he met Donovan avoided entanglements with other people. He is not keen on becoming friends with Donovan either but the guy is persistent and endearingly helpless. TJ almost has no choice.
Both men harbor secrets and trouble follows them to their sanctuary. TJ is still dealing with the aftermath of his relationship and laid back Donovan seems to be exactly what he needs. He bounces back quickly and finds happiness in small things. The tone of the story is even and doesn’t put any expectations on reader. You can easily put this down and then pick it up again.
