Wolf in Gucci Loafers (Tales of the Harker Pack #2) by Tara Lain


Rating 4/5 stars
Publication Date: April 16, 2014

Blurb:

Socialite Lindsey Vanessen wants someone to love who will love him back — an impossibility for a gay, half-human, half-werewolf. Too aggressive for humans, too gay for wolves, and needing to protect the pack from human discovery, Lindsey tries to content himself with life as a successful businessman. But when someone starts kidnapping members of wealthy families, Lindsey meets tough cop Seth Zakowsy—the hunky embodiment of everything Lindsey wants but can't have.

Seth has never been attracted to flamboyant men. What would the guys in the department think of Lindsey? But intrigue turns to lust when he discovers Lindsey’s biting, snarling passion more than matches his dominant side. It might mean a chance at love for a cop in black leather and a wolf in Gucci loafers.

Review:

In the beginning I wasn't sure if Lindsey's personality would be an off for me. I am not used to his type of behavior. It's not like I have a problem with that, it's just that my usual male characters in an M/M romance are more like Seth than Lindsey. His personality is more colorful. He is the kind of gay guy that you can spot from miles away. His feminine side is more feminine than mine and as said said "He is darling this and darling that" Turns out that Lindsey is a sweetheart

Seth is the total opposite if Lindsey. If you saw him you wouldn't have guessed a thing, unless he wanted you to. And yet he and Lindsey are perfect for each other. Opposites attract....
Jazz is a lovely character. I loved him a little and I want to see him in another book.

I am a fan of M/M romance so there is no chance I wouldn't have loved that aspect of the book. There is nothing better. The love scenes between the couple could have been steamier and sexier. But they didn't disappoint. I would have liked a little more focus on the research for the bad guy. Before Lindsey finds out who is behind everything the author starts dropping hints about that person's identity. I am not sure if that adds something in the whole reading experience or removes from it.

Excerpt:

Lindsey laughed and walked over to the end table beside his couch, grabbed the remote, and pushed Play. Piano music filled the room. “Hmm, the Chopin Piano Concerto for striptease? Maybe not.” He clicked again to Cher lamenting gypsies, tramps and thieves. “Now my orientation is showing.” Another click and La Babs crooned her heart out. Perfect.

He strolled to the center of the room, grabbed his silk neck scarf, and slowly pulled it from around his neck. He fluttered it a couple of times, then gripped it in his teeth as he shrugged out of the green leather jacket and tossed it on top of Seth’s clothes. He’d worn a black form-fitting sweater underneath, which he gripped at the hem, and, as he ground his hips, he pulled it one tantalizing centimeter at a time up his body. For a moment the sweater covered his eyes, but when he peeked out below, Seth stared at him with a glassy gaze and parted lips. He threw the sweater on the pile and, still biting the scarf, ran its ends over his shoulders and pecs.

Seth’s stroking got serious. “Man, you are beautiful. Graceful and slim with all these cool muscles teasing under the surface.”
Lindsey drew his brows together. “Too far below the surface, if you ask me.”

“Nah. Just right.”

Lindsey rested his hands on his waistband and did a big hip roll. As he bumped forward, he unbuttoned the fly and slid the zipper of his black jeans just far enough to let the fat head of his penis peep over. “Peekaboo.”

Seth shook his head. “You are one mass of sexy contradictions.”

As Lindsey lowered the zipper farther over his briefs, Seth pumped harder. Lindsey shook a finger. “Uh-uh, don’t start without me.”

Seth tightened his grip but stopped pumping.

With the zipper down, Lindsey hooked his thumbs in the top of the pants and pulled them over his hips. No sliding—they were too tight. Still holding the scarf between his teeth like a rose, he slid the pants to his ankles, stepped out of his Gucci loafers, and then out of the pants.

His cock strained the elastic on the boxer briefs, and he slid the tip of his finger around and around the exposed head of his dick.

Seth smiled. “Can I do that for you?”

“Very soon.”

He turned his back to the hunk on his bed and looked over his shoulder with a flutter of lashes. Good, he was paying strict attention. Lindsey placed his hands on the small of his own back, slid them into the tight teal briefs, and dragged them over his butt. Two quick twerks, then he slipped them to his feet, kicked with one foot, and they flew through the air and landed on a floor lamp.

Seth laughed. “I’m dyin’ over here. This may be more of a dance than I bargained for.”

Lindsey gazed over his shoulder. “If you don’t like the floor show, sir, we’ll refund your cover charge.”

Seth held up one hand—the other still gripped his cock. “No complaints. Not one.”

Still with his back to Seth, Lindsey pulled the scarf from his teeth and tied a strategic bow. As Babs sang something about being a woman in love, Lindsey raised one arm above his head, twirled on one foot, and presented his cock forward tied in a lavender silk scarf.

Seth sputtered. “I don’t know whether to laugh or come!”
