Down and Dirty
An elite squad of Wildfire Fighters who just happen to be shifters…. and find their mates? Um, yes please.
What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
It started with a wildfire.
Things went downhill from there.
When firefighter Rory lays eyes on fire watcher Edith, he instantly knows she’s the one. His fated mate.
Now, to win her heart, he just has to protect her from:
1. A raging wildfire (actually, she’s already got that covered, thanks)
2. The lightning-throwing invisible monster that started it (um, the what?)
3. Killer bunnies (don’t even ask)
4. The appalling matchmaking attempts from his crew of misfit shifters (not only is this guy scorching hot, his dog is adorable too. And… weirdly smart?)
5. His own animal need to claim her. Now. (if only she could look him in the eye…)
Good thing that as a powerful alpha griffin shifter, he can handle anything… right?
There’s only one problem.
The last thing this autistic woman wants — or needs — is to be protected…
Zoe Chant returns to the hot, hilarious world of the Fire and Rescue Shifters with an all-new series starring an all-new crew – now wilder than ever!
I admit I grabbed this based on cover alone (cause I’m shallow like that) but I was pleasantly surprised to discover the story was solid, heartfelt and incredibly sweet.
Our FMC has autism, which unnerved me at first – not because she shouldn’t be the FMC, but because I worried about justice being given to the condition AND to the plot. It worked, and it worked well – without being used as a crutch or dismissed. It mattered, but it wasn’t the story, just like autism is in real life. It was interesting….. and there was a unicorn. So there’s that.
Third Person, Multiple POV
HEA within series
- Intriguing world building.
- Firefighters… need I say more?
- Could have been longer.
Not quite the guilty pleasure I was expecting – it contains too much plot and lack of sex for that. Good book for all lover of shifters and intriguing, fated mate tales.
