I have a confession to make: I love shapeshifter stories wherein their shifter nature causes them to have uncontrollable mating urges. Not sure if that makes me a freak or not, but if so I'll let that flag fly. Kamikaze was one of the books offered during All Romance's Earth Day e-book giveaway promotion. I'd been wanting to check out this series so I was delighted when it came up for free!
Zoe Bennett is a werewolf who's looking for a temporary mate to ease the discomfort of her mating cycle. She's a relatively new werewolf and doesn't really know how to handle it herself, so she goes to Last Call, a supernatural bar where your drink order tells everyone what you're looking for.
Zoe orders a Kamikaze, and as soon as she belts it down, she's surrounded by interested men. She's only interested in one man though - Conor O'Malley, the IT guy who's there to update the bar's security system.
This book was short and super sexy. Kamikaze definitely delivered smokin' sex, hot werewolf mating instincts, and a sneakily romantic storyline. Zoe was just the right amount of naive about her wolf but her mating cycle was kicking her ass and making her do things she normally wouldn't do with a stranger. Connor was a sexy nerd and a more experienced werewolf who was more than happy to guide her through it.
One of the things I love about Moira Rogers' writing is the romantic tension. This book is a bit different because it just jumps right into the good stuff, and I loved it! If you look up " fun sexy werewolf short story" in the dictionary, this book is what you would find. I gave Kamikaze 4 stars!
