This was much more in depth than I expected for the free LHNB event. It's a long, detailed story with lots of characters. Even with all the characters, I was able to keep track of everyone and the author kept the main focus on our heroes while giving us interest with supporting characters.
Great world building and it's the story of 2 MCs and their families. The families play a critical role in the story and I liked getting to know them. Trey was somewhat at a crossroads - he loved his family but was entering his first real relationship. Reiner, although a shifter like Trey, had grown up a bit more sheltered and it was a whole new world for him with Trey and Trey's family. I did like the backstory with Trey's parents being menage and how Trey loved each of these 3 parents and they loved him in return. Seriously, the story of how these 3 hooked up was a story needing to be told!
The guys started a relationship with all its new relationship complications but, lots of sex. Including a bit of realism by having the male penis having barbs like a jaguar which complicated what Trey and Reiner could do sexually - or in the case of Trey's dads - still do!. Trey's dads sounded very hot :). Trey's family dynamics weren't brushed over - including Reiner trying to figure out who was who and whose. :)
This was a really enjoyable read without a lot of heavy angst but some wonderful world building. The story wasn't overly complicated and very enjoyable. Thanks so much to the author for such an in depth story for this event.
