A career military man, Viktor lives for the next mission – and his collection of weapons -- but a raid on an experimental lab makes him an unwilling protector, mostly because he can’t peel Renee off. A cold blooded croc, he never intended to settle down, but he didn’t count on a foxy lady warming his heart.

The world outside the laboratory was a big scary place. Unsure of how to deal with it, Renee latches onto the biggest, baddest, and sexiest,warrior around. Sharp toothed and with ice in his veins, Viktor’s violent side should have sent her running, but instead, she finds the courage to face her fears –and tame the lizard.

When danger comes knocking, with the intention of turning her lizard into a high priced fashion accessory, will Renee embrace her foxy side and show a croc she’s got what it takes to be his mate?

FTC : I bought this.

A three word summary

Funny, sexy and bat-shit-crazy.

Reasons for reading 

I love Eve Langlais. Her characters are bitchy, the story-lines are funny and I feel that I’ve stepped down the rabbit hole every-time I read one of them. This one was shape-shifters with a Croc hero … I was powerless to resist!

Was it worth it?

Yes! Viktor is a grumpy Croc who tries so hard to resist the helpless shifter that he rescues from the lab. Even whilst he is drawn to her, he still fights her off. I love the reluctant hero trope and this one checked all the boxes 🙂

Renee is a bit of a revelation as a heroine. I liked that she completely embraced her freedom, trying everything until fear gets too much for her. She was a very strong woman and I respected her … I felt as she learned more about herself so did I! The book was very funny and sweet!

Is there sex?

Yup. Loads!

Is there angst?

Not really.

Is there a good side plot?

There is and it has a plot within a story arc which I liked. it was a little bit Dr Frankenstein and little bit Miss Marple… I loved! I’ll admit I haven’t read the first couple in the series but I had no issues following it.

Favorite scene

When Renee’s secret is revealed.. I laughed!

Who would I recommend it for?

People who love snarky characters, Alpha heroes and mad-cap antics!

  1. I’ve enjoyed all the books of hers that I’ve read. The croc/fox combo sounds interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever read a were-croc story before.
