Pup #Review

Oh, to have a pup like Micah... oh, to have a master like Tackett. These men are perfect - you know, for each other. And for readers. But hey, when doesn't Peterson develop the perfect characters?

Micah “Pup” Slayde knows he wants Tackett Austin the moment he lays eyes on him in the Guards of Folsom. Micah wants to have purpose, to be taken care of, and to take care of his Dom—wants to trust him completely, live for him, belong to him. To become his everything. Micah is sure Tackett is the one. The problem is, in order to be the perfect sub, he needs to stay focused, and that’s not easy for Micah, who suffers from what he refers to as a “broken brain.” Focus and adult attention deficit disorder rarely coexist.

Ever since Ty Callahan and Blake Henderson’s collaring ceremony, Tackett’s been thinking too much about his own loneliness. Even though Ty introduces Micah and urges Tackett to give him a try, Tackett isn’t so easily convinced. He’s spent his life pursuing a successful business career, and the subs he dominates almost never enjoy the kiss of his leather twice. Twenty years Micah’s senior, Tackett has no interest in taking on and taming such a young and naughty sub—but it’s difficult to resist such an adorable pup when he begs.

This is the first official book in the Guards of Folsom series, even though readers heard about it in Ty's story, Riveted. Each book is going to focus on a different kink and a different coupling. But this couple -Micah and Tackett- seemed made for one another. Micah knew it from the start and as a sub, it was a bit awkward to bring Tackett around. Thank goodness for friends because it was Tackett's friends who bring him around.

I enjoyed the inclusion of all the secondary characters. Peterson has a way of building a family in her series that makes readers feel a connection. Regardless of the kink -though damn, does she write those sex scenes good- the stories of her men are engaging. I know when I pick up a book written by Peterson, it will be a story to savor.

Pup is an endearing story of two men forging their HEA. Micah sees in Tackett what he needs to overcome his ADD and Tackett proves himself the man for the job. The work they do to find balance is beautiful. Every scene has a clear purpose. The time and commitment Tackett puts into finding what works for Micah shows how well their connection serves both of them. Their pull towards one another is too great to deny and readers feel the compulsion. This was such a sexy and beautiful love story.
