A Being(s) in Love Story

Being a police detective is hard. Add the complication of being a werewolf subject to human prejudice, and you might say Ray Branigan has his work cut out for him. He’s hot on the trail of a killer when he realizes he needs help.

Enter Cal Parker, the beautiful half-fairy Ray’s secretly been in love with for years—secretly, because while werewolves mate for life, fairies… don’t. Ray needs Cal’s expertise, but it isn’t easy to concentrate with his mate walking around half-naked trying to publicly seduce him. By the time Ray identifies the killer—and sorts out a few prejudices of his own—it may be too late for Cal.

The description above is a good enough summary, and I don't want to spoil any of the plot. If you are a fan of mysteries, the bad guy is a bit easy to spot, but the characters are what truly shine. Cal is quirky yet brilliant, and Ray is growly yet careful. The interaction between the main characters provides a love story that I will enjoy reading over and over again, and the interections with the supporting characters make this the sort of book you can't put down no matter how many times you've read it. If the author ever reads this...Thank you for Steve. I loved being surprised when he was so much more than I expected. (Even though that was the point, I was surprised. I'm as slow as Ray some days.) For everyone else, I thoroughly enjoyed how the author gave such vivid personalities to all the characters, even the most minor. There was nothing bland about this book. It was very sweet in so many ways.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not for everyone? Maybe; but if this is your kind of story, it rocks. 25 février 2013

Thanks for this one, R. Cooper! A friend insisted I read "A Boy and his Dragon" so I did that first (and loved it), but I am pretty much as enthused about this fairy/werewolf duo, Cal and Ray.

This sort of supernatural fantasy romance isn't everyone's taste. Cooper's imagined world - an alternate America where all sort of supernatural creatures just exist and have been dealt with for decades (except, oddly, vampires, which Ray insists don't really exist!!!).

Once you just go with that premise it's sort of marvelous. Seems that each of the books focuses on teaching the reader about the deeper truths of specific creatures. I do like me a good werewolf, and Ray Branigan is a good one. But I am just the kind of gay man who loves a sugar-infused fairy, and Cal Parker is awesome. Wings aside, they seem to be my type.

The sexual repression and yearning fairly buzzes off the page, and Cooper pulls the same stunt as with the boy and his dragon - that very repression of desire and love makes the ultimate payoff amazingly intense from an emotional perspective. Cooper also infuses the narrative, which is wrapped around a peculiar murder mystery with its own complications, with wonderfully imagined cultural history about these magical creatures, exposing stereotypes and false myths that misinform and confuse the characters.

That said, the lavish description of scents and smells, which of course the werewolf is very tuned to, play a significant role in this book, almost a character in itself. I can find the standard "scent of love" used in many m/m novels to be irritating and over-calculated; but in R. Cooper's sparkly pen, the very over-the-topness of smell descriptions adds to the slightly halucinogenic quality (then again, it could have been the Nyquil...). Not for everyone, but very much for me.

Ray, werewolf and police detective, is desperately in love with half-fairy police consultant Cal but will not tell him because he thinks that fairies are not able to commit in long term relationships. He thinks that because that is the common knowledge about fairies. At the same time he despises those humans who are afraid of him because of the stories about werewolves.

This is all there is to this -short- novel, page after page of endless ranting and musing, pouting and groping and licking fingers covered in sugar. On an emotional level it sort of works and a certain amount of tension -sexual tension as well- is reached and maintained and allowed me to read this book through to its end and enjoy the happily ever after, but the impression that the plot was thin and overstretched lurked constantly.

This is a pity. The premise was good, basic characterization well thought of. As it is clear that Ms Cooper can write, with a little more effort this could have been an excellent standalone or even the first episode of a successful series. The effort having been this, we have nothing more than a barely decent read for very undemanding M/M romance fans.

I agree with the reviewer who said this was just too thin... Ray is a werewolf cop, who hates the assumptions that people make about weres, and there he is, refusing a relationship with his mate, because he is a fairy, and you know what they all say about fairies... It got marked down big time for me because the ending was so weak, basically a retelling of the entire story again, with a slightly different POV - that's just cheap and lazy writing. I skimmed the last 20% which means I didn't really read it. To get a real 3 stars I have to read it from cover to cover, and this one I didn't. But it gets 3 rather than 2 stars because it is well written and because Ray is suitably intense. I read Play It Again, Charlie from the same author first, and thought it too wasn't flawless, it was a better book on the same theme (though with no supernatural element).

The premise of this story is a good one and it could have even been a good story. Except the writing was very strange. It seemed to jump all over the place with no real rhyme or reason. It was not difficult to follow, but it was very frustrating since the plot line never seemed to really get fleshed out.
