A Seaside Shifters Tale
Police cadet and bear shifter Tyson Dakota looks forward to his on-the-job training in Seaside, Oregon, working alongside his cousin, Chief of Police John Dakota. Their goal is to investigate the growing meth epidemic and identify the kingpin bringing the drugs into their community. All signs point to someone inside law enforcement working with the drug traffickers, and Tyson must find out who before the body count gets any higher.
Along the way, Tyson meets Amante, a charismatic and attractive man in town for reasons he doesn’t want to share. Tyson is drawn to Amante despite his secretive ways and is sure there could be more between them than explosive passion, if he could just get Amante to make his stay in Seaside permanent. But when Tyson’s pursuit of justice puts him at odds with Amante, they could lose more than their fledgling relationship.
They could end up losing their lives.
Ty is eighteen and ready to take on the world or at least Seaside. So when he meets the man of his dreams at the town’s only bar, is his future brighter than even he knew?
Wild Instincts by Ethan Stone is second in the Seaside Shifters series. I don’t feel I missed anything having not read the first in this series.
I enjoyed meeting Ty and Amante. While Ty is young, he had a good head on his shoulders. He wasn’t expecting much more than a night with Amante so he was just as surprised as anyone when it became more. This was my first time reading Mr. Stone’s work and it won’t be the last. Amante was secretive but as honest as he could be. He never hid that his time in town was limited but Mr. Stone showed us how he struggled with his purpose the more he got to know Ty. And Ty was smart as a whip which I enjoyed given his young age. I loved that Mr. Stone gave Ty a maturity much older than his years. Overall, I enjoyed this story and look forward to returning to Mr. Stone’s world.
