Tom Langley and Sean Goods work together in a human-and-wolf shifter partnership, assisting the police, rushing in to solve crimes wherever their bosses send them.

And his husband hates the wolf shifter with a pas Tom Langley and Sean Goods work together in a human-and-wolf shifter partnership, assisting the police, rushing in to solve crimes wherever their bosses send them. And his husband hates the wolf shifter with a passion.
Tom tries to balance the sides of his life—one minute on a high-pressure chase with Sean, the next placating his husband Lowell. Then the unthinkable happens: Heartbroken, he's not expecting to ever get over Lowell's betrayal or to be able to love again. Sean offers a solution: They have chemistry, and they trust each other. But can they change their partnership that much? And is Sean secretly harboring feelings for him—expecting more than just sex?
Sean is a loveable, funny, strong, and protective. He's the best buddy a guy could have. But Tom might not be able to keep from breaking his heart—if Sean is in love with him, and Tom can't love him back. Kindle Edition , pages. Shifters and Partners 1.

Aug 14, Katrina Passick Lumsden rated it did not like it. Well, when the main character's romantic partner nearly kicks the main character's work partner, while said work partner is in wolf form and has done nothing to provoke this kind of abuse Am I supposed to like this guy? He can't be redeemed to me now. It's one thing to be a doormat and have a hard time standing up to a bully. It's another thing entirely to go off and have sex with said bully.

I know this is a snarky thing to think but it felt like I was getting two alpha males as the partner but Tom through most of the book doesn't act like the typical alpha male.
I really thought his character was overdone. Some sorrow and betrayal with the depression which didn't have to be all tears would have worked but it seemed the author went with the tears for the character. He is a "sensitive" guy but as I said it goes too far. Also cops know that if they are as bad Tom is waaaay to whiney. Also cops know that if they are as bad as Tom appears they need to get help I also feel that his uppers would have pulled him. The rest of the book I enjoyed.
I thought the plot was well done and the sequence of events worked well. The editing could have been better. Overall a cute book but it placed far too much on Tom's suffering. Oct 18, Aerulan rated it did not like it Shelves: And I should have quit at the beginning when Tom's husband tries to kick Sean while he's in his wolf form, because he doesn't like him. And Tom not only doesn't take his husband Lowell to task for that shit or give more than a token defense of Sean. No he goes off with Lowell and has sex, leaving Sean waiting in the kitchen. He's a horrible person, a whiny, selfish, drama queen who has no redeeming qualities at all.
Sean is a sweet rather desperate guy -who inexplicably loves Tom, I mean it there's nothing appealing about his character - and I keep hoping Tom gets killed or goes back to his asshole ex-husband, they deserve each other so Sean can find someone who doesn't treat him like absolute shit. I'm quitting for my sanity, because I can't take anymore of Sean acting like this self-centered douchebag who's been using him the whole book somehow deserves anything but a kick in the nuts and then being kicked hard to the curb.

Nov 04, Susan65 rated it really liked it Shelves: The Blogger Girls I really like the human-shifter pairing of alpha males in law enforcement and for the most part this was a great story. I loved all of the cases that Tom and Sean went on and solved together.
They are part of a specialized team that used the nose of the wolf to find missing children and other crimes and saved the day more than once. They were heroes and a great team. Their friendship and partnership was easy and real. Except that Tom is married to Lowell, a sneaky, manipulative The Blogger Girls I really like the human-shifter pairing of alpha males in law enforcement and for the most part this was a great story.
A real husband, who was not needy and selfish, would allow their spouse to keep a friend and coworker without them constantly causing fake jealous drama. But, of course, there is a reason for Lowell acting like a lunatic and we get to that about half way through the book.
Partners - Book One
Wolf shifter noses can smell more than missing children and Lowell has something to hide. My only complaint was that Tom, the human half of this partnership, was completely unstable.
- Dominated by the Lady (Dominant Woman Erotica).
For the entire book he was crying, whining, musing internally and externally about how he could never love again. He came across as weak, a willing doormat, one step away from being institutionalized. I can completely understand the hurt and pain that comes with betrayal, but really this was a bit over the top.
I also noted the ratings were higher, so I look forward to seeing this partnership in a whole new light and, hopefully, with a lot less crying. Nov 15, April rated it it was ok.
My Partner the Wolf
I wanted to like this book, but it was just painful to read! Even skimming through it, it was painful! The whole conflict in this story was because one guy couldn't get over his cheating ex-husband. I almost never think people are whining, but this guy took the "poor me, I'm so depressed!
I don't know if I can love again! He has a wolf-shifter partner who he is pretty much best-friends with, but treats the guy like utter crap. View all 6 comments. Ok, I'm going to honest here. At the core of it all, it seems to be just another Dar and Kerry novel. It has the same characters, the same setting only this is in the future and the same story as Tropical Storm had.
But let's dig in a bit deeper. The setting is somewhat a mix between the movie Waterworld and the Orchid Volume 1 graphic novels. The world as we know it doesn't exist anymore, and life is a real bitch. Unless you are tested and found good enough to do something important, or you are Ok, I'm going to honest here. Unless you are tested and found good enough to do something important, or you are biologically engineered in a spacestation.
Jess is an agent for an organization that deals with security and espionage.
Dev is an experiment, and is thrown into the deep end of a life she is barely, or even not, prepared for. Both are partnered and sent on missions, but something is not as it should be, and it is up to both our intrepid heroines to find out what that is and fix it. But there is an undercurrent here, and it has to do with society and the place the so called Biological Alternatives which Dev is have. Or rather, the place they don't have. Although being genetically human, they are classified as non citizens, and are looked down upon and just barely tolerated, as their one and only function is to do jobs no one else wants to do.
I have read comments about equalling BA's to slaves, and in a way, they are. They are carefully "grown" and completely controlled, only able to do the things they are programmed for. And as we learn more about them, through Dev, the BA's don't like it much either, as despite all the genetical engineering and rigid programming, they are able to have feelings and even dreams about wanting to do more than what's expected of them, and, dare we say it, have ambitions.
But downside, as earth is called, don't know that, don't even want to know that. They are just there to do menial work and most natural born simply hate them. So we get thrown into the story, as Jess is recovering from a mission gone bad, because her partner called techs betrays her and she barely escapes with her life.
My Partner the Wolf (Shifters and Partners #1) by Hollis Shiloh
Trust between the Agent and the Tech is vital for mission success, and now there's a lot of friction going on between the other agents and their techs. So much so, it endangers the entire organization. Then she gets ordered to partner up with, of all things, a new experimental Biological Alternative, which has gotten a crash course in all things operations through a week of heavy programming.
Trusting no one, certainly not a lowly BA as a partner, Jess decides to opt out, but at the last moment is brought back by the big boss of it all, and she is convinced to take on Dev and root out the moll inside. Much to the outrage of anyone else. Again, pretty standard scifi, were it not for Dev.
See a Problem?
Because Dev is an absolute joy to read about. She is a 17 and a half standard years old, and knows absolutely nothing about life or operations beyond what with she is programmed for. It's a bit funny though, because we learn they get a thorough education and training, but al she has known for her entire life is the space station she was "born" on. But there is a secret, only known to her maker. She is one of kind so far, and unbeknownst to Dev, she is engineered to learn, and make decisions, and act human.
So we have someone that acts as any other other human adult, but everything she encounters is new to her and she has no clue at all what to do or think. The conversations between Jess and Dev are very nice to read. Dev adapts and learns although she most of the time has to resort to a computer to find out what all these humans talk about , and proves her worth during her first mission, by showing piloting skills no one has ever seen. It is a slow story though but I like that and ends in a.. I only read this because I saw the sequel being scheduled for december this year. It is in every way a Melissa Good book.
If you didn't like Dar and Kerry, don't bother. But the interaction between Jess and Dev is what makes this a good read. The sci fi ho hum is a bit standard, the world building has holes the size of the Titanic, but Dev really makes this book shine. I can't wait for the sequel. View all 9 comments. The beginning was great and the ending was somewhat decent if you can get past the cliffhanger and go right to the second book but the middle was a whole lot of nothing. The book starts of promising, we are introduced to a dystopian future a couple hundreds years from now.
I love it already at this point. Then there are the two 3. Then there are the two main characters - the ultimate badass agent Jess and the nicest tech girl on the whole world Dev who's not really human, she's artificially grown and programmed. Great setup, what can go wrong? Nothing happens in this book! That's what went wrong. After an action filled intro they just hang out into the grey citadel or do a lot of nothing in their flying ship, there is a mission and they spend most of the book preparing for it or being delayed to go on it sooner.
That's basically her default answer to everything and she says that word at least a times in this book, I counted. And when finally something starts to happen and it's getting exciting again the book ends. A cliffhanger, I got no love for those. The characters are fine I guess. Jess is kinda one dimensional, she has an interesting back story but besides that she's basically a sociopath without breaks. She steals and kills without remorse innocent or not, doesn't care about anyone and does what she wants.
Some of it is kinda explained but it's a bit hard to like her, her feelings and attitude towards Dev redeems her a little bit. Now Dev is a really engaging one, she's made in a test tube and she doesn't have any human rights because technically she's not a human even though she thinks and she feels if not exactly like then similarly to real humans. Her journey from bio alt to becoming fully human through new experiences is done really well. The world building is good but more backstory was needed. Basically the conflict between the dystopian Europe and America is explained away by humans being humans and conflict is what we do.
Some more context could've made it much more believable. The tech side of things are well thought out but the author writes too much about it. I'd rather something actually happened in place of descriptions of characters turning every little knob and lever to fly their airships and use their scanners.
What it comes down to is that the base ingredients are really fresh and high quality but the cook forgot to add salt and spices. The book gets incredibly repetitive and stale in the middle and it was a chore to grind to the end. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Preview — Partners by Rebecca James.

Partners is a book about two law enforcement officers finding out they are attracted to one another. Friends to lovers and law enforcement in one book?

Now I did think some of this very short story was steamy but honestly it just felt way to rushed to me and by the time they actually do get together it was almost the end of this story and bam that was it. So I really do not know how I feel about these two men together and the whole reason they finally admit to their feelings for each other I have to be honest and say I was really not a fan of. So I am sad to say this Novella was just not for me I received this book free in exchange for an honest review from Inked Rainbow Reads.

The plot was interesting because involved two policemen - one who is bisexual and the other doesn't know he's bisexual. When he sees his partner kissing someone that unlocks a door in him. The author perfectly describes his thoughts and thinking pr This was a great story. The author perfectly describes his thoughts and thinking process after this awakening.
Afterward, he approaches his partner about his enlightenment. This conversation was very well done. A great ending to a story. It was perfect the way it was written.
