Review: Kiss and Kin by Kinsey W. Holley

Brotherly love? Oh hell no…

A Sexy Shifter story.

On the surface, court reporter Lark Manning looks like the luckiest girl in the world, blessed with great friends and a wonderful family. Underneath, she harbors a hopelessly unrequited love for the sexy werewolf everyone thinks of as her cousin. Taran rarely notices her except to condescend or lecture. He’s treated her the same way since she was eight years old, and there’s no reason to think he’ll ever change.

Taran Lloyd, a detective in the Houston Police Department’s Shifters Investigations Unit (SHIU), lives for those rare moments he gets to spend around Lark, torturing himself with what he can’t have. Kin only by marriage, she thinks of him as her big brother. He couldn’t bear her pity—or her disgust—if she learned he wants her for his mate.

When weres from a rival pack attack her, Lark screams out the first name that comes to mind—Taran. Only this sexy alpha can keep her safe until they find out who wants her dead, and why. But keeping her safe means keeping her close. And the closer they get, the harder it gets for these not-really-cousins to honor their commitment to keep their paws off.

Kiss and Kin is the first book in Kinsey W. Holley’s Werewolves in Love series. It was also my first introduction to Kinsey’s books.

In Kiss and Kin, we meet Lark Manning who has been hot for cousin (by marriage, not blood) for as long as she can remember. That cousin is a hottie, were, Taran Lloyd. He’s a detective in the Houston Police Department’s Shifters Investigations Unit (SHIU).

Cue couples row down d’Nile. She believes he still sees her as the the cute little girl he’s known forever and he believes she sees him as the brotherly type. But, when she’s attacked and calls out his name, he rushes to her rescue and throughout her recovery, neither can resist the heat between them or the fact that Taran’s known she’s his mate. Oops! Did he forget to mention that?

The baddie was kinda predictable, but, hey, the sex was smokin’. >;) I will be continuing the series and look forward to reading more by Kinsey.
