Description from the publisher:
Katharine Karak’s shiny new job at the FUCN’A is all about teaching cadets how to fit in with the one percent.
Zeek LeBrute swore he’d never return to the fight rings. Instead, he’s been teaching Academy cadets what he knows about fighting to survive.
No one knew that Katz and Zeek had a brief secret affair that changed their lives forever.
Neither had any idea their new paths were about to collide and set their plans ablaze in a sizzling dance of resistance to distracting passions.
When Darcy Karak and Caleb Terry ask them for help on their first big FUC case as agents, Katz and Zeek are faced with hard decisions for their families, the shifter community…and themselves.
How can this passionate kitty resist becoming distracted by such a hot gorilla to focus on her goals?
This gorilla may have to overcome his kitty’s hisses with kisses to prove it isn’t too late for them.
GORILLA IN THE HISS is the thirty-second book in the multi-author FUC Academy series and the fourth in Jodi Kendrick’s Pedigree Series. Each is a stand-alone, paranormal, romantic suspense story set in the FUC world created by Eve Langlais. You will enjoy it more if you have read the others in the Pedigree sub-series.
I was long fascinated with the story of Koko (1971 – 2018), the gorilla who knew sign language and asked for a kitten for a pet in 1983. I kept thinking of Koko as I read about Zeek, a gorilla-shifter, claiming his kitten, Katz, in this story.
I thoroughly enjoyed this playful story. It had romance, suspense, family, obligations, independence, and humor, all perfectly interwoven to create something special.
Every book that I have read in the FUC Academy series has been wonderful and this is a great addition to the shelf. There will always be “bad guys” in the world, and may we always have the cadets and agents of FUC!
Note: While I received this book as a gifted ARC via Story Origin, my opinions are my own and are given freely.
