Joey and the Fox by Hollis Shiloh: #Review #Excerpt #Giveaway @thehollisshiloh #NewRelease

Joey and the Fox
(Shifters and Partners, Book 3)
by Hollis Shiloh

Genres: Gay (M/M), Paranormal, Romance
Asshole cop. It's Joey's role, and one he's comfortable with. Joey tells gay jokes. He's crude, tough, and thick-skinned. But now he's got a chance to work with a fox shifter—and he doesn't want to lose that opportunity. 

Dylan is a mess: clingy and broken, cheerful but lost, seriously unpredictable…and very gay. But Joey desperately wants the partnership to succeed. He's not willing to lose the fox shifter for any reason, even when Dyl drives him crazy. 

Is there any way to make it work? And will the weird attraction he feels to the cute redhead ever go away? 
From Joey's POV 
He liked to dance in the rain.

He liked to watch loud TV with lots of music and dancing - from the voting shows that annoyed me so much (you know, "call in and vote for your favorite contestant"), to musicals, I couldn't stand them, but I just absented myself, didn't tell him to stop. Goodness knows he needed something to make him smile. 

When I watched my favorite TV shows and movies, he liked to cuddle up to me on the couch, either in my lap getting petted in his fox form, or nudged up next to me in his human form, crunching popcorn and sitting so close I couldn't get up without moving him. He always seemed to want to be plastered to me from hip to shoulder.

I tolerated the lack of personal space better than I'd have expected.

I did have firm rules about him not following me into the bathroom, but he was allowed to trail me around at any other point and I wouldn't scold him.

If I needed space, I told him frankly. If he was scared or stressed or feeling in danger of losing himself, he told me as soon as he realized.

That was our deal: we had to be honest with each other or it wouldn't work.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A sweet little romance about opposites who attract and finding love in unexpected places. Joey is lovably confused by his feelings for Dylan, the ginger haired fox that seems to idolize him almost from the very start. Together they form a friendship that translates into a working relationship that surprises them both.

With appearances by Tom, Sean and the rest of the gang from books one and two, JOEY AND THE FOX is a heartwarming addition to this amazing series.  I fell in love with Dylan almost from the start and I wanted to hug him so hard. His optimistic and gentle nature challenges Joey to be a better man, one that Dylan already believes he sees.

Not as intense as Tom and Sean's stories, Joey and Dylan have their own special brand of chemistry. Hollis Shiloh never disappoints as each installment in this series seems to be my favorite!

View all my reviews
Hollis Shiloh writes love stories about men, also called gay romance or m/m romance, with the preferred genres of contemporary, historical, and fantasy. Hollis's stories tend towards the sweet rather than the spicy. When not writing, the author enjoys reading, retro music, and being around animals.
