Yep ... I read it!

Nate's Deputy (Shifters' Haven #5)Nate's Deputy by Lavinia Lewis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very good shifter story. I've enjoyed all of the books in this series, some more than others. This one was especially good as both characters fought against the "we're mates=HEA" that many shifter stories are based on. I enjoyed the angst and the thickening main plotline that is driving this series. I'm anxious to see where it carries this series.

One bad point I've noticed about the author's style, at least in my opinion. The ending is a bit abrupt for my taste. I like to revel in the character's happiness. Seeing them enjoying their HEA once their personal conflict is over. Ms Lewis tends to cut the endings short. Everyone is happy and we're done. No muss, no fuss. Just my personal preference I like the story to go on a bit and see the characters interacting beyond their moment of HEA. But truly this is a pretty minor point. Overall I really enjoyed this book and this series and I await the next.

  1. This is an early post but I just wanted to say “Thank You” for letting me be included in your Hop Against Homophobia. I am afraid I am not a talented m/m fiction writer like yourself but I am an avid reader of it.

    I guess I do not fit into any category really since I write non-fiction for an adult studio. http://shadowsterling.blogspot.com/2012/04/studio-i-write-for.html

    But this is a cause I feel strongly about and I wanted to let you know I appreciate the opportunity to be included.
