An alpha shifter, Mathis lost the love of his life, and he knows he’ll never find another mate. But his innocent new neighbor clearly doesn’t know the danger she’s in, and he's the only one who can save her.
But when the attraction pulls too strong, will Mathis’ animal nature be unleashed and claim Sadie for his own? Buck Naked is a sexy, emotional thrill-ride that will hook readers on this fantastic new series.
I don't wish to discuss the plot too much but Sadie is a twin with no idea that when she retreats to an isolated town she's about to come face to face with a world of paranormal creatures. Add in the fact that she's one of them, and it makes for some very interesting confrontations. I think that was what really tickled me as Sadie had no idea just what was going on and why everyone freaked out the way they did. Now add in her somewhat grumpy neighbour, Mathis and Sadie really is confused. Mathis can clearly stand on his own and won't be pushed around but Ms Anderson made him a sweet, sympathetic character. His (eventual!) interactions with Sadie allowed the reader to understand his worries, his loss, his hesitation but fear not, as Mathis is no slouch and comes through for this woman who needs a whole lot of loving!
Yes, it's an erotic story but honestly the author didn't just pile in lots of titillation to get her readers hot, no there's an interesting idea here that's fleshed out. I really enjoyed the comedic side of it as poor Sadie is so often out of her depth in some situations. Best of all, there's clearly a character waiting in the wings who needs taking down a peg or two and I strongly suspect fur will soon start to fly!
It's always hard with the first book in a series as so much world building should be laid out. Obviously with this one there's the lore surrounding the shifters too, however the romance came through strongly and for me it was a heartwarming ending that truly satisfied my romantic soul.
A copy of Buck Naked was provided to me which I've voluntarily read and these comments are my own honest opinion.
