✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ Dustin by Becca Fanning

I'm always happy to dive in to a Becca Fanning book and her newest addition to the Shifter Football League series, Dustin, is just one more reason why.

Momma Says: 5 out 5 stars

Dustin is well-written in third person POV. It fits perfectly into the Paranormal Romance and Sports Romance genres with its sexy bear shifters who also happen to be football players. There's no actual game play, but there is plenty of talk of practice and team interactions. It is part of the Shifter Football League series, but can be read as a standalone. The steam level isn't over the top but there is enough that I would recommend 18+ readers.

Dustin was a running back. He was also a planner, cool and careful. But some things in life you can't plan for...

Dustin Perry knew what making this team would do for his career. Everything was carefully planned and put into place. Sure, it was only semi-pro but it was still a stage and Dustin flourished in the spotlight. By the end of the season, everyone would be speaking his name, wondering how high his shooting star would go.

But Fate would bring someone special into his life, something no one could have planned for...

This full length bear shifter paranormal romance novel has all the action, steam and true love that only a Fated Mates story can deliver!

 Dustin is an enemies to lovers romance and when I say enemies, I mean it in every sense of the word. Dustin and Brooklyn were on complete opposite sides of a coin. This one was a bit different than what I've come to expect from this author. I usually like her characters pretty quickly. Even with their faults, there's usually something to like about them. That wasn't the case with this pair. They each had their reasons for their actions - Dustin had no experience with competition and not being at the top of the list and a past bad experience shaped Brooklyn's attitude. Their problem was with the way they solved their problems. Dustin came across as arrogant and childish and Brooklyn was cold and unyielding. In fact, they both were so over the top in their actions that I wasn't sure I could like them. But, those actions kept me turning pages to see how this "romance" could possibly work out. I even reached a point that I was sure the only good outcome would be for both of these characters to get their just desserts. It turns out that Fanning knew exactly what she was doing. She sucked me in and kept me turning pages to see how this "romance" could possibly work out for these two. I don't want to give everything away, but the author certainly shows that there is redemption, even for what appears to be irredeemable. It just takes that special someone to open your eyes to what you thought you didn't want and to everything you can be with the right person at your back. 

Dustin is available for purchase at Amazon and is listed on Kindle Unlimited.
