I admit, I bought this book because the cover immediately caught my eye on Dreamspinner. It's very refreshing to see such beautiful cover art when most art for romance books makes me want to run screaming, and it reminds me of my favorite two Norse gods.It's short, too short for in-depth character development. But I really love Ari and that he's not your typical male-damsel-in-distress. The take on shifters and their status in society is very interesting, I'd definitely like to read some more of that. The plot twist at the end was a bit predictable, but I don't mind tropes at all if they're well-written.A short but satisfying read. I'm torn between three and four stars, but since the blurb said it was written by a fellow fandom person from South-Germany, it's four stars from me. I assume she's an ESL person, and writing in a different language takes effort.
