BLURB: — Being kidnapped by two werewolves is an adventure after all, right? Right?! —
If Quinn wants to get the best photos for his travel blog, no gate is too tall, and no ‘do not enter’ sign actually means he won’t go in. What he finds in a hidden exclusion zone by Chernobyl blows his mind. Mutants? Monsters? He doesn’t know, but he is bound to find out when not one but two of them break into his hotel.
Too bad the rules and attitudes they have toward sex don’t match Quinn’s at all.
Born with a disabled hand, smaller than the other werewolves, Dima is the lowest of the low in his pack, but when he meets the loveliest human he’s ever seen, he knows his luck has changed.
The last thing he expects though is his beloved friend Nazar turning on him once Dima’s affection for Quinn deepens, and he refuses to be mounted by Nazar anymore.
Nazar is a high ranking soldier in his pack, but in his powerful body hides a gentle soul, and all he wants is to escape the pack with Dima. But once Dima claims Quinn as his, secrets Nazar has so far kept hidden rear their ugly head.
The werewolf language doesn’t have words to describe what they crave, so Quinn might be the only one to help them solve the puzzle of the desires that go against the rules of their pack.
So the Dynamic Duo bought in a “third” to make their own perfect triad of writers. Did they achieve the perfection of a true polyfidelity writing relationship or did they have their own writers hierarchy pecking order?
I believe that the 5* rating may have given you a clue to that answer. They blended together like the sweetest of grapes to produce the finest of champagnes, they bubbled together and produced an unusual but very entertaining storyline, introducing us to the world of The Bodark…..
As the blurb suggests, Chernobyl is still a very dangerous place to visit and Quinn, a Travel Blog Writer, wants a sensational scoop for the Blog and is prepared to ditch his guides and head into the “Black Zone” to find it – and find it, he did….
Well actually, Dima (a Bodark) found Quinn and decided to keep him! In the eyes of The Bodark, Dima is deformed and therefore treated as the lowest-of-the-low. The only brightness in Dima’s life is Nazar – his protector and lover and now that he has Quinn, his standing in the Pack will elevate. Quinn, has no idea of what the hell is going on? but he does know that he wants Dima and Nazar. Quinn soon discovers that this unique society still believes that Mother Russia exists and have no real contact with the outside world, unless chosen to go on a “mission”. The hierarchy in the Pack, is absolute, even in Dima’s and Nazar’s personal relationship, so for Dima, Quinn’s appearance is his salvation and he’s never going to let him go. This does cause problems between Dima and Nazar, but Quinn is the perfect third for them. Through him, Dima and Nazar learn how to blend the benefits of having a monogamy relationship and being open about their sexual needs, with Quinn being the stability they needed in showing them the way forward. He wasn’t the third wheel, but their anchor!
As their relationship grows into something more, questions arise? If the USSR no longer exists, who supplies the food they receive? why were they being used as weapons of war and more importantly, by whom? They needed to escape!
I thoroughly enjoyed this original storyline, it was certainly different from the norm and though a Menage storyline is not normally my preferred choice, I was enthralled and captivated throughout, the authors did an amazing job. I would have loved some answers, but it wasn’t to be – maybe next book?
5* big fat stars from me
