Jiri’s life has been one misery after the next. A cobra shifter, he’s held captive by a collector who keeps him—and other shifters—in a private harem-style “zoo” in the Libyan desert. Considered a dangerous predator by the other shifters, and little more than a boy toy to the collector, Jiri is friendless, timid, and despondent.
Miksa is the collector’s latest find. But honey badgers are known for their bad attitude, fearlessness, and fighting spirit. Miksa has no doubt he’ll escape, even if it means taking the whole zoo down with him.
When honey badger and cobra meet, there should be instant enmity—after all, honey badgers eat cobras—yet both men find themselves oddly drawn to the other. Romance blossoms, but can it survive captivity and beyond? In order to do so, Jiri will have to find a strength he doesn’t know he possesses and Miksa will have to open a heart long closed to anyone except his immediate family.
A Cobra’s Charm by Meghan Maslow is an exciting, fresh and romantic tale that I couldn’t put down. Between the unique story-line and the very sexy and interesting heroes, I was immediately caught up into the lives of these characters and truly hated to see the story come to an end.
Since the blurb does an excellent job at describing the story, I won’t rehash it, but I will say that the intensity these two men felt for each other really resonated with me as I continued to read their story. I totally fell in love with both of these characters and quite frankly, though you wouldn’t think they’d belong together…they really were made for one another.
I loved the descriptive storytelling ability this author has. I was so easily swept up into not only the lives of these heroes, but the setting as well. Also, the world building the author created was a truly addictive one to read. To my knowledge, I’ve never read anything quite like this…and believe me when I say I read A LOT.
Do yourself a favor and get this book. You won’t be sorry. A Cobra’s Charm is definitely going to be one of my favorites of the year and I’m anxious to read more by this author in the future.
