What started out as a regular job assignment quickly escalated into something more for Oliver Philip when he met twin Shire horse shapeshifters, Bayard and Marshall Stoddard. The past few months have been filled with love and laughter, but storm clouds are gathering on the horizon. The three choose to take every opportunity to cement their growing bond, like an afternoon picnic that turns into a taste test of a different sort when Bay and Marsh show Oliver the delights of Horsfall Ranch.
I really liked the interesting storyline in having the shapeshifters become horses. I’ve read a lot of animal shifter stories, but this is the first with horseshifting. I love horses, I love hot sexy men, and in this story there are two of them, brothers who shift into horses. They also work on a ranch with the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop. So what’s not to like?
I have not read the previous books in this series, but the author did an excellent job of making this book a stand alone. Although it's clear there is something before this, you won’t feel as if you missed anything by not reading the first book.
Buchanan uses this setting to tell the story of a committed threesome. Shapeshifting brothers Marsh and Bay are both in love with Oliver, and Oliver is in love with them. The brothers want Oliver to live with them in triune bliss, but Oliver is hesitant. He has fears and doubts that only true love can overcome. I enjoyed reading about people who could be like me - those with faults, fears, and joys.
If you like horses, men, and hot gay sex, this is a book you won’t want to miss.
