“Come on.” She winked. “You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do.”
“I thought these things were urban legend. I never imagined I’d see one in real life.”
His date’s gaze glimmered with mischief. “There are lots of big
hairy surprises out there for those brave enough to search for them.”
“Like you, for one.” He cleared his throat. “Except for the hairy part. I hope, anyway.”
A slight blush colored her cheeks, and he brushed his knuckles
over the soft skin there. Shadows marred the smoothness beneath her
eyes. Had she been sick? Or maybe her party girl lifestyle drew out too
much. She stepped back.
“Cowboy up, sugar.” She grasped his hand and pulled him forward,
again surprising him with her power. Under the softness of her curves
lay a fair amount of muscle. He swallowed. She could ride him without
tiring, take his maddened pounding for hours. It’d take all night to
spend the pent up energy boiling in his veins. He’d passed the point of
return; jerking off wouldn’t satiate his needs. Without sex, and soon,
he’d run howling through the streets, a crazed animal.
After taking an elevator to the basement level of the parking
garage, she led him to a red door and rapped on its freshly painted

Thank you to Decadent Publishing and Olivia Starke for the opportunity to read and review this story. Yet again, DP brings me out of my comfort zone with romance. I am not a big paranormal/sci-fi/shapeshifter reader, but DP is good at giving me incentive to read something out of my comfort zone. It helps that most of them are short so I can force myself to read it. This story is definitely for someone who like paranormal/sci-fi/shapeshifter stories. I did enjoy the twists and turns that this story took. I don't know how to review this story because it is so different for me. I did enjoy the romance aspect of it. Rumor has it that there may be a sequel?
