Were-cougar Noah is bored out of his mind. He retired young after selling his start-up business, and now he has no idea what to do with himself. As a self-made man, he likes to be in control, but even his favorite pastimes have lost their luster these days.
Were-fox Toland meets Noah at Faster Bobcat, where his cousin works as a bartender. Experienced and dominant, Toland sets out to turn Noah’s world upside down, convince Noah he doesn’t always need to be the one on top. Can Noah be what Toland needs, or will he run from the one thing he can’t seem to turn down?
Silver Fox is the story of the beginning of what could be a lovely relationship between a bored cougar shifter named Noah, who thinks he’s a top, and a fox shifter named Toland, who KNOWS he’s a top. The two meet at a club, which used to be called Hot Tin Roof, but now is called Faster Bobcat. I was a bit confused since the name has changed in this third book with no explanation… So anyway, Noah is in for a drink and to watch the dancers, but is bored until he catches sight of a silver fox. He sends the man a drink, who then comes over for a chat. The two hook up and it becomes apparent to Toland that Noah needs to be encouraged in his submission. Noah isn’t sure and freaks out a bit. Or more than a bit as we see later…. I’ll stop there since there isn’t much to this and I don’t want to give anything away!
This is a short cute story, with not much plot… which makes it somewhat challenging to review! Pretty much the same issue I had with the last two books, honestly. I love a good shifter book, and I don’t have an issue with short stories, or with insta-love. However I do like a little more character and plot development than this book has. Noah and Toland seem like they could be cool guys to get to know, and I would have loved to see their BDSM relationship develop more. But in 50 pages, that just doesn’t happen. That’s not to say that I didn’t like the story, cause I did, there is something charming about all three of these books. They are what they are. Short little glimpses of a world and characters, a little sex, a little fun, and done. Julia Talbot is good at writing books like these, and they are enjoyable!
If you like a little bit of kink, a little bit of paranormal, and a little bit of fun, give this one a try.
