Publisher's Summary

A Shifter U Tale

A smitten coyote isn't the only one stalking Buffalo Bill.

A buffalo walks into a cafe. Sounds like the start of a bad joke, but for coyote shifter Donnie Granger, it's the beginning of an obsession. Donnie is a little hyperactive and a lot distractible, except when it comes to William. He finally works up the nerve to approach William but is interrupted by a couple of violent humans.

While William - don't call me Bill - is currently a professor, he once worked undercover against an international weapons-trafficking ring. Before he can settle into obscurity, he must find out who leaked his location and eliminate the thugs. He tries keeping his distance to protect Donnie, but the wily coyote won't stay away.

It'll take both Donnie's skills as a stalker - er, hunter - and William's super-spy expertise to neutralize the threat so they can discover if an excitable coyote and a placid-until-pissed buffalo have a future together.

3.5 Stars

I really enjoyed Finn Sterling's performance. Sterling uses distinctive character voices for every character, he has good pacing and timing, and he adds just enough emotion to his performance to make the whole thing a pleasure to listen to.

The story has an interesting premise, but the refusal of William to properly communicate with Donnie leading Donnie to do some pretty foolish (TSTL) things was a bit maddening. I was also hoping for more relationship development than what happens. Since the story is only told from Donnie's POV, we miss getting into William's head, which would have been great since he's the epitome of the "strong and silent" type.

Ultimately though the narration was fun to listen to, with plenty of humor mixed in, and the world building interesting enough to come back once the next book in the series gets released.
