Tim is a small wolf shifter, partially disabled, not good at confrontation, and very alone. Life isn't easy at a precinct where he's never been fully accepted. He spends far too much of his time trying not to overhear coworkers mocking him. His best friend (okay, pretty much his only friend) is a drug-addicted fox shifter.
And Tim certainly knows better than to fall in love; that didn't work out so hot before. These days, he sticks to anonymous encounters. He doesn't believe in mates or true love, not for someone like him.
But he's worked for the cops almost a decade now, and really, there's no reason at all why he should have to go through a stupid certification course. They didn't even have those when he started!
Life takes an unexpected twist when one of his anonymous encounters turns out to be attending the same certification course. Levi is a big, sweet guy he'd never expected to see again.
Tim doesn't want to let Levi see the flaws and cracks that anything more than a quick hookup would reveal. He certainly doesn't plan to spend any more time with the guy, much less get feelings for him...

Sweet. Loved Levi, who is strong, steady and a genuinely nice guy, exactly who Tim needs. Hope to hear K's love story sometime!
This story is about Tim, a wolf shifter who has gone through life being treated as less because of several birth defects. His family and pack unloaded him on a police shifter program as soon as he was able. Unfortunately the precinct he was placed treated him with disdain. But due to an unplanned inspection he was found and forced into a better situation. That better situation introduced him to Levi, a suppose to be one night stand. Due to all the mistreatment he's had to endure, Tim has very low self worth and he doesn't feel he's worth all the effort. He therefore is always waiting for the roof to fall in. Thisatory is not a police story. It's really about the struggle of pulling yourself up from self defeat. It's also about friendship and being there for someone. I would give this 3.5 stars only because it was told through Tim's point of view only. I would have like to know what the other two main characters were thinking. But that's just me.
