A Beginner's Guide to Wooing Your Mate by R. Cooper
Series: Being(s) in Love #3
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: MM, Paranormal
Wolf’s Paw is a predominately shifter populated town. Ever since humans learned of the existence of other beings the town flourished by holding festivals like the Spring Thaw to promote diversity as well as fill the town’s coffers with visitor’s money.
Growing up in Wolf’s Paw as one of the human minority Zeki Janowitz always felt like an outsider. Small and geeky it was no wonder Zeki was a target for bullying on a regular basis. His only reason for submitting to daily misery was being able to see wolf shifter Theo Greenleaf in school. Zeki had it bad for the wolf, yet the moment Theo finally spoke to him he blew it.
As soon as Zeki graduated he left Wolf’s Paw to further his education, to become a full fledged wizard. With his studies finished Zeki is stopping in town to visit with his father before striking out to find a job. Seeing Theo again after all these years Zeki realizes his feelings haven’t changed. He still craves the sexy wolf, but he knows it’s far too late. What could Theo possibly want with him after all this time, right?
Root for a romantically inept wizard in the latest Being(s) in Love tale. A Beginner’s Guide to Wooing Your Mate manages to make a convoluted set of rules entertaining. The shifter rules don’t make sense to the humans half the time and don’t allow for mistakes when the wolf screws up. A sweet love story, A Beginner’s Guide to Wooing Your Mate allows confusing, frustrating rules to almost derail a romance. Luckily Zeki and Theo are made of sterner stuff as the endearing mess and a shy shifter triumph.
