Grizzly alpha Caspar long ago resigned himself to a loner life, never suspecting that the future he saw with Asher Lambert's pack of outcasts would ever be more than a means to an end, that they would become his family. And then he meets a man whose future he cannot see...
He always expected to have a family... he just didn't expect to adopt a dozen kids at once. Rabbit omega Theo Ward was happy with his position as the head librarian, content to let love find him when it was meant to be. Instead, twelve homeless kids found him. Theo will do anything for them, even stand against the giant bear who has come looking for them...
Their only focus is the children... or so they keep telling themselves. But will the attraction and mystery be too much to ignore? Is it possible that Caspar actually has a future he cannot see?
- Headless torsos and/or exposed abs – how original^
- Read all at once (normal)
- It includes rabbit shifters, which are pretty unique; I enjoy unconventional shifter stories
- It's interesting that Theo's mom thinks the food she makes is imbued with whatever emotion she makes it with*
- That Theo had a plan in place to lure the kids in with food and give them a home**
- That Bethany has the ability to absorb pain from others and take it upon herself***
- It was cute when Theo wasn't feeling well and shifted into a little rabbit
- How Caspar always wanted a family and got more than what he bargained for
- The weird/original baby names (Iris, Kinley, and Sturm)
- How Caspar really stepped into the role of teacher with the kids despite being antisocial
- Hip deep
Mood Upon Completion
- Very few typos^^
- Decently hot
- Decently sweet
- Theo's parents wanted them to get properly mated first (quite heteronormative) instead of just letting them live together
- The ending seemed a bit rushed from the delivery onward
- Weakly emotional
- Abuse (physical and emotional, supporting, one, past)
^Consistent with the rest of the series, same background, rabbit is weirdly blended
^^The apostrophe for y’all was in the wrong place – you all
*It reminds me of another M/M book I read about witches (main characters) who would make food and imbue it with emotions
**Theo’s family has been very supportive; his parents arranged for Theo and the kids to have a proper home
***I cannot imagine that; it’s interesting how many people say ‘I wish I could take your pain away’, because I wonder how many people actually would do it
Sorry, no post found.
