Sidney has quietly loved twin brothers Brook and Colby for years, watching and pining as they came to his house for the summer every year. Painfully aware that they have each other, have no reason to notice the unremarkable duck they grew up babysitting.
Then the twins and their mother are attacked days before an important meeting that will change the shifter world forever. When the twins come to stay with Sidney’s family until the attackers are caught, Sidney learns that all things have their season, and even violent protests will not keep two rabbits from the man for whom they’ve been patiently waiting…
Warning: Story contains incest
Since I’d enjoyed the first book in this series so much, I was really looking forward to getting into this one and I’m happy to say that it didn’t disappoint. Things are still tense between the various groups of shifters as more is happening on the political front in regards to outing their existence to the human population. In the midst of the current turmoil you have Brook and Colby, two rabbit shifters who were attacked and threatened in an effort to stall their mother’s attempts at pushing the shifter community as a whole out of the dark ages. In an effort to keep them safe, they’re sent to the one place that’s sure to keep them from harm: smack in the middle of duck territory and back into the life of Sidney.
Sidney spent most of his life enthralled with the two rabbits but figured he had no chance with either of them as he was several years younger and they seemed to hate his guts. He hasn’t even seen or heard anything from them in the last two years but waking up one morning to find them suddenly in his life once more is a bit of a surprise, especially since they suddenly seem to want to be more than passing acquaintances. Personally I liked Sidney quite a bit; he’s an easy to understand character and you learn quite a bit about him, either directly or from observations offered up by other characters. It was nice to see that, even though he’d spent most of his life being shy, he had opened up and now has no problem speaking his mind. Also, regardless of how much he wanted the twins, he wasn’t willing to put up with any BS just to be with them.
The twins I also liked though I think I liked the differences in their personalities the most, especially when it came to time in the bedroom. (or the den or outside…) Like it says in the blurb, there is some incest in the story but it really didn’t bother me; you mostly see kissing between the two though there is a blowjob in there as well. Maybe if I’d seen them together more, just the two of them, I’d feel differently but Sidney was with them every step of the way pretty much and it all just seemed to mesh together really well.
This was a great continuation of the previous book and I’m really hoping there will be more to come as the political issues aren’t anywhere near to being solved. Also, fans of the first book will be happy to know that you do get to catch up with Skylar and Brady and, while not a lot, seeing them did solidify the way things ended with them before. (I know I had a big stupid grin when I got to read about them.) I’m really enjoying this series so far and the wide variety of shifters makes for a unique reading experience. The stories are, so far, satisfying and easy to read which pretty much ensures that I’ll be coming back to them over and over again.
