Mr. February by Bailey Bradford

One cool cat is about to discover just how hot love can be.

Darin Winger is beginning to regret ever volunteering to be a model for the charity calendar. There’s already been an attack on all the people working on the photo shoot, which resulted in a nasty case of food poisoning for Darin and others. Then there was the fire at Marco’s place, which had resulted in the photographer being injured. To what extent, Darin doesn’t know, but now the photo shoot is back on, and Marco’s daughter Perry is in charge of everything.

Which would be fine, except the weather causes delays, people cause delays, almost everything causes delays—and Darin is ready to return to his regularly scheduled life as a nurse and dog shifter. If one more thing goes wrong…

The last straw might be the arrival of an uptight feline shifter named Arturo Casarez, who demands that Perry move the photo shoot off the grounds of the museum.

Except there’s something about Arturo that calls to Darin. Now he’ll have to convince Arturo to give him a chance.

Darin is a nurse who loves what he does. He is also a canine shifter. When he is roped into helping with the calendar shoot, he has no choice – but he doesn't like everyone involved and there is some conflict. What he doesn't expect is to see Arturo. First look and he knows that there is a connection.

Arturo is the nerdy guy who is serious about his job. He can't have almost naked men around when there are young school children coming to the museum. Arturo's friends are also behind him in the museum, but one co-worker in particular is a struggle to get along with. There is some strife on the work side, but mostly, Arturo is okay to live his life and wish he could attract a man as yummy as Darin.

When sparks fly between Arturo and Darin, not everyone is happy about it. They have okay chemistry and the story has some twists, but mostly, this is a very straight forward story about falling in love and holding on to love when it finds you. There wasn't some great mystery or surprise – you knew there was going to be a reveal, but overall, this was just an okay story.

This is the second book in the series and if you have read Mr. January you will know that the whole calendar project is one already beset by disasters. Well February is just as problematic, although thankfully with less serious injuries.

Perry has taken over the photography and was really happy to have found an alternative shoot site. Sadly, this is also nixed, but curator Arturo allows them to use his gardens instead. Everything seems back on track, and Arturo even finds that Mr. February may just be the icing on the cake.

I didn't expect a cat and dog shifter to get on so well, but Ms. Bradford makes it work, and the first morning after scene is both funny and cute. They definitely have a great deal of chemistry, which added to their new friendship, gives us hope for a happy ending. Obviously, there are a few challenges along the way, some less welcome than others.

I have Mr. March waiting on my Kindle, which is excellent news.

A native Texan, Bailey spends her days spinning stories around in her head, which has contributed to more than one incident of tripping over her own feet. Evenings are reserved for pounding away at the keyboard, as are early morning hours. Sleep? Doesn't happen much. Writing is too much fun, and there are too many characters bouncing about, tapping on Bailey's brain demanding to be let out.

Caffeine and chocolate are permanent fixtures in Bailey's office and are never far from hand at any given time. Removing either of those necessities from Bailey's presence can result in what is known as A Very, Very Scary Bailey and is not advised under any circumstances.
