~Synopsis~

The attraction between Brent Berkheimer and Scott Spearman peels the wallpaper, but Brent is Scott’s boss, and they’re both too professional to go beyond flirting. Their priorities realign after Scott is badly injured in an accident that costs him his hearing, and Brent realizes what is truly important… he wants Scott.
Scott pushes Brent away at first, fearing a new romance will just add to his problems, but perhaps he will find unexpected strength and solace in Brent’s support as he struggles to communicate with the world in a new way.
Just as they decide the chance of a happy future together is worth the risk, Scott and Brent discover darker challenges in their way—including evidence that the “accident” Scott suffered may not have been so accidental.

open q I really want to take this post to say thank you to someone very special. Her name is Becky and she is my primary Beta Reader!  I have others, but she’s the first and my go to person.  Becky has personal experience with someone who is deaf and her expertise and insight were invaluable for this book.  Not only did she help me with writing the deaf character, Scott, she also helped me characterize Brent and how he would react and need to take special care and patience in his interactions with Scott. Writing a character who is deaf or becomes deaf is much more difficult and involved than removing all hearing references.  It involved things like developing new methods of communication and interaction for my characters.   This story was a challenge for me as well as a complete and total labor of love, which Becky helped bring to reality.  So thank you once again!!! close q

Author: Cari Z.
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Page Count: 200 pages
Genre(s): M/M Romance, Werewolves/Shapeshifters
Release Date: September 18, 2017
Reviewer: ~Simone~
Rating: 4.5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

When Ward Johannsen’s little girl Ava shifted into a werewolf, she was taken into custody by the feds and shipped off to the nearest pack, all ties between father and daughter severed. Ward burned every bridge he had discovering her location, and then almost froze to death in the Colorado mountains tracking her new pack down. And that’s just the beginning of his struggle.
Henry Dormer is an alpha werewolf and an elite black ops soldier who failed his last mission. He returns home, hoping for some time to recuperate and help settle the pack’s newest member, a little pup named Ava who can’t shift back to her human form. Instead he meets Ward, who refuses to leave his daughter without a fight. The two men are as different as night and day, but their respect for each other strikes a spark of mutual interest that quickly grows into a flame. They might find something special together—love, passion, and even a family—if they can survive trigger-happy pack guardians, violent werewolf politics, and meddling government agencies that are just as likely to get their alpha soldiers killed as bring them home safely.

So, Where’s All The Sex?

My gosh, I almost feel guilty having a blog post on a site called Dirty Books Obsession that contains all of one complete sex scene in it. There are more intimate scenes, there are some close calls, but there’s only one fully-realized sex scene. Yeah. I know. What the hell?

I like to write sex. I really like to read it, and given my personal preferences, shouldn’t I be getting more of that action into my own books? The answer is an absolute, unequivocal maybe. It just depends on the book, for me. Some authors are truly reliable when it comes to what you’re getting with their stories—all sweet, or all sex, all the time. I’m…not.

For me, it really all depends on the characters and their personal situations. No, hear me out, this isn’t a bunch of BS—character is everything for me when it comes to sex. Character and circumstance. If the hottest guy in the world is about to get his head chopped off, and a page later he’s passionately getting it on with his would-be executioner? You better explain that with some serious magic or a huge knock to the head, because I’m not going to buy it otherwise and will be reluctant to even if you do give me a super explanation. Worse, I’m not going to want to read it, because if it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, my mind tends to rebel.

I’ve written an incubus who had to have sex all the time in order to stay healthy. Fun was had by all. I’ve written a shy virgin who only had time to lose said virginity in one on-the-page sex scene before I did awful things to him. Fair enough. In Off The Beaten Path, there are neither incubi or virgins, but there is a worried father desperate to save his little girl and an alpha werewolf with PTSD who has a lot more going on inside than his libido. Frankly, I’m happy I got them off together period, what with all the extra crap I threw their way.

I hope you find the heat level of Off The Beaten Path works for the story. I feel like it does, and if in a revisit someday I have them happy and healthy and fucking like bunnies? Well, more power to them and their well-rounded future selves. For now, there are minefields to navigate. Happy trails.
