Chasing Seth

Chasing Seth by J.R Loveless
3.5 out of 5

Veterinarian Seth Davies comes to Senaka, Wyoming, looking for peace and anonymity, trying to escape his past. He’s always been a target for trouble and pain, and Seth has had more than his share of both. Kasey Whitedove takes one look at Seth and assumes the worst. No white man could love animals the way the mostly Cheyenne population expects, and Kasey makes Seth’s first days in Senaka more than unpleasant.

Then an accident puts Kasey in the uncomfortable position of eating crow—and helplessly desiring Seth—despite the danger of Kasey’s life as a werewolf and Seth’s stressful secrets. Chasing Seth down and keeping him safe from his past has just become Kasey's most important job.

Though this book is quite predictable, offers up a somewhat original story in the gay PNR genre. It still contains the same formula that is most shifter books; finding one’s destined mate and overcoming a series of obstacles. I enjoyed all the characters, and I really am hoping it will become a spectacular series.

Seth Davies is trying to make a new life after enduring extreme torture and abuse from his past. He moves to the quiet town of Senaka, Wyoming in hopes of finally having a life. Where he can be a great veterinarian and let his wolf run free without being discovered and hurt. However, living in Senaka comes with a bit of prejudice, being a white man in Cheyenne territory but the people have been good, and Seth is hoping to make his life there.

Problems arise when he finally meets the town sheriff, and the hate is strongly coming off in waves for Seth. Kasey the town sheriff dislikes the white man, and its killing him to seek help from the Vet. Kasey does not hide his prejudices and Seth is starting to feel as if things won’t be as easy as he imagined. However, faith will have a role in bringing both men together and the journey will not be easy.

I really did enjoy this story. It was a sweet, and kept the suspense coming. It moves quite well, but I felt the book could have been just as good with less pages. After awhile I felt as if it was just dragging on, and became a repetition of it-self. I did like the MCs (main characters) but my interest is piqued by a relationship that feels up coming. I am really hoping for a second book.

The sex, I thought it was average based on the amount. When actual intercourse happens at almost 50% through the book, ‘in no way is that too much sex’.  The discrimination part of the book might be offensive to some readers, and Kasey might come off as a racist, but I believe him to be misinformed.  You can blame it one the ‘single story’ that Kasey had of the white people.

Overall, an easy and light read about shifters. A creepy stalker and that of love conquering all, and a sweet HEA. The ending leaves you in hope for a sequel and possibly a wonderful series about the wolves finding their destined mates.
