With Dorian's very alpha personality it made it difficult for him to become a full fledged member of Kontra's Menagerie. His infrequent but challenging encounters with Kontra, the alpha Grizzly and Perrin, the alpha Lion meant he could not have a permanent place with them. The unusual circumstance in this story is that the young collegiate Platypus had never met another shifter. His shock meeting several different species was amusing.
Since Kai had been raised by his Human aunt and uncle he was not familiar with any shifter habits (i.e. ease with being naked) or traditions (i.e. the gift of finding a lifelong mate). The Mate Pull was unsettling. He had some body image issues, but the older handsome man didn't seem to notice. Since he was on an out of town vacation with his close Human friends, Brock and Tyson, as well as his best friend, Korbin, before the beginning of their senior year in college, he figured he could have a little "fling". Kai never anticipated how strong and quickly his feelings would grow towards Dorian. But what happens when he has to return home?
Does Kai really believe that the much older suave man would give up his "life" to be with his so called paunchy and poor sighted "mate"? Is he really willing to go meet Kai's family? To move wherever Kai is going to college? That's too much of a fairy tale. Things like that don't happen and especially to someone like Kai.
If you enjoy yourself when you read romances about May - late December romances, newly educated shifters, the strength of the mate pull, a shifter having Human friends and a Human family. Reading about a much older shifter who has waited centuries for his mate and what he is willing to do now that he has found him. This is an amusing story that I will certainly be rereading a few times.
Upon regaining consciousness and learning a bit about shifters, while still wanting to sniff Dorian, he also learns about mates. And that Dorian is his. And that Dorian is two and a half centuries old. Ok, that's a bit much and he returns to his friends and the kegger party week they have planned. Dorian follows and they mate - so now what? Kai is still in college and Dorian is two and a half centuries old - what does that mean for them? And it seems the warlock in the pack has had a vision of Dorian as an Alpha of an unconventional pack.
And that last bit is really of interest to me. The meeting, relationship and mating really do go off without a hitch so it is all a bit plain sailing once Kai learns what shifters there are and some of the shifter rules. But when an unconventional pack is mentioned and that Dorian will lead them (and he doesn't really want a pack) I was looking forward to more information. But the story just ended there. I really am getting annoyed at the sudden end just when some of the good stuff could be happening. We get build up and then we get dumped out of the story. That's why it gets 3 stars, it ends when the meaty stuff should begin.
