This is my first Unicorn shifter story and I loved how it started, despite the “not-so-subtle to have sex in the first five minutes after meeting” dialogue but I get the sudden developments in the story because the author wrote this originally for an anthology.
The story unfolds as twenty five year old virgin Carney comes to a paranormal bar for his birthday and the unicorn king smell his virgin scent and finds him in the bar….and then the story develops very fast after that. The short and very brief angst was very engaging, filling me with dread. Even though I knew the end would be HEA, I was still anxious and this is the example of how beautiful the “showing” in that scene was, which again reminded me why I love T.A. Chase’s stories. Unfortunately, straight after that, the story was somehow rushed to a quick finish. I felt that the characters were not fully established in their relationship, by the time story finished, but still, it is a sweet story, which is worth reading. I am glad that I read it, even though I wish it was longer so that I got to know the characters more intimately and met with some of the unicorn community.
When an innocent human virgin meets the king of the unicorn herd, it’s not just legends that come true.
Ivan Brusilov goes to Unconventional to get a drink and let off some steam. Little does he realize he’ll be meeting his destiny when he walks in.
Carney Ferguson goes to the paranormal bar to celebrate his twenty-fifth birthday. Maybe he’s looking for some fun as well, considering he’s still a virgin. He doesn’t like admitting it, but when he meets Ivan, he discovers that being a virgin can bring opportunities that being experienced might not.
As the unicorn king and the virgin begin to fall in love, there are darker forces working behind the scenes to take advantage of the unicorn legends for their own evil purpose. Neither Ivan nor Carney are safe alone, but together, they just might be strong enough to keep Ivan alive.
There is beauty in every kind of love, so why not live a life without boundaries?
