I had the pleasure of reading Shifting Hearts, Book 6 of the Wild R Farm series last night and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I have always loved the mix of humans and different shifter types in this series and this book is no exception.
Brandon is a horse shifter – a stallion – with issues. The same issues that cause him to believe his is unlovable and consequently he acts like an asshole with all those around him, especially his lovers. Three years before, he had enjoyed Zach, frequently, but when Zach got to close to him, Brandon treated him like shit.
Zach has been moving on, or trying to – but it’s hard for him when his love life was ruined by a stallion. But when the two men meet up again he is no pushover, in fact there were times I wanted to yell at him too.
That is one of the things that truly impress me about Silvia Violet’s books – her characters all have their own unique strengths and she is great at helping you to connect with her characters. Although this is book 6 in the series you don’t have to have read them to enjoy this book – it works well as a standalone. But when you meet some of the secondary characters you are going to want to go back and read their stories too – they are all worth reading.
Five stars from me – I loved it 🙂
After experiencing what happens when someone you love walks away and never looks back, Brandon decided love was for fools. Then he spent a summer with Zach. He struggled against feelings that grew every time he and Zach were together, telling himself they were just having a fling. When Zach confessed his love one hot summer night, Brandon panicked. He scoffed at Zach and made sure he walked away first.
Three years later, their paths cross again when Zach becomes the vet at Wild R Farm where Brandon works. Brandon realizes his feelings haven’t changed, but Zach treats Brandon with scorn despite Brandon’s every attempt to show Zach he’s no longer the self-centered man he used to be. When a night out ends with Brandon driving Zach home, confessions are made on both sides, and hope begins to build in Brandon’s heart.
