Blog Tour: Patience by Grace R. Duncan~ Guest Post #Excerpt #Review #Giveaway

Author: Grace R. Duncan
Book: Patience (Book 2 in Forbes Mates Series)
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Publication Date: March 7, 2016
Length: 266 pages

Jamie Ryan was almost ready to accept he’d never find his destined mate. They’re uncommon to begin with and same-sex versions downright rare. Since his gay best friend found a destined mate, Jamie figured he was out of luck. Until end of semester stress forces him to go through the full-moon shift early. Stuck in wolf form, he runs into none other than his destined mate. Who’s human.

Chad Sutton has always had good instincts. They served him well as a detective and continued on when he went private. Those instincts tell him there’s something about the dog that comes up to him while running away from animal control that isn’t quite right. He works to put the pieces together, but is unsuccessful until his dog turns into a human before his eyes.

Jamie has no idea what a shifter’s mate bite will do to a human. He’s terrified to try—and possibly kill his mate. They hunt together for answers while working together on a case for Chad. It’s easy to see they belong together, but Jamie fears the gods gave him someone he can’t keep.

The only time insta love/lust works for me is in shifter books. It's the animalistic quality it brings. This is book two in Grace's Forbes Mates series. (you should read them in order in my opinion) I actually loved this book even more than the first one. So, we have Jaime who pretty much keeps his inner animal stagnant for so long that it takes control and he basically bursts. Jamie turns into Murray (his wolf/dog) and that is how Chad finds him. To Chad Jamie is Murray and I absolutely adored Murray's antics. The two of them were absolutely hilarious! I thought how Jamie/Murray finds his mate (Chad) was written perfectly. It is so very clever how these two come to be.
There's comedy, fluff, and even some angst in here. But it's just the right amount of everything and it worked very well with the story.

Great addition to this series!

Guest Post

Hello! Thank you to Diverse Reader for the space on the blog today! 

This is the second stop on the Music Clues part of the blog tour. You can see the first one over at the Dreamspinner blog. Links to all the stops can be found on my website at the blog tour page: http://www.grace-duncan.com/graces-blog/patience-blog-tour
I’m a huge music fan and when I sat down to write Patience, I’d figured out pretty quickly that Chad was, as well. He absolutely loves 80s music and has a tendency to quote (or, rather, refer to them since I didn’t want to get into copyright trouble) the songs. Twelve of those 80s songs were referenced by Chad throughout Patience.

For twelve of the stops on the tour, there will be a clue (the reference) to one of the songs and an answer with excerpt for one of the other songs. You can see which blogs are participating on the blog tour page above.

For today, the answer song is Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran.
The clue was: “He paused to lower the volume on the stereo he’d just turned on, laughing when he heard Duran Duran talk about hunting and being hungry.”

And the excerpt from Patience:
Chad stared at his dog, who had just turned into a person. A guy. A hot guy.
“Well, that’s not quite what I expected,” he blurted as the guy stood. Chad couldn’t stop his eyes from traveling down the man’s body, pausing a little too long on his pretty, nice-sized cock before moving back up to the gorgeous blue eyes.
Murray—Jamie—smiled. Chad didn’t know if it was for the once-over or the comment. “What did you expect? Uh, actually… do you have a towel? I’m kind of naked.”
“I’m not minding the view,” Chad mumbled as he turned toward the closet.
“Well, I’m glad you like what you see, but… explanations might be a little easier if I’m not naked.”
Chad blinked at him. “You heard that?”
Jamie nodded as he wrapped the towel around his waist, then pointed to his ear. “Sensitive hearing. And, uh, actually, could I use your phone? I’ve got a couple of friends who are probably really worried about me.”
“Oh, sure,” Chad said, going back out to the kitchen to retrieve his. Footsteps followed him, and he turned to hand the phone over, seeing Jamie had caught up. “Maybe you’d prefer some shorts or something?”
“That’d be great, thanks.” Jamie smiled, and Chad had to force himself to look away. The man wasn’t just hot, but gorgeous.
Chad hurried away. He stopped in the bedroom long enough to pull jeans on—and thus hide his hard-on—and grab a pair of drawstring shorts. He’d noticed Jamie was quite a bit leaner than he was. He paused to lower the volume on the stereo he’d just turned on, laughing when he heard Duran Duran talk about hunting and being hungry. When he got back to the kitchen, Jamie was still on the phone.

And the next clue is here:
“Bob Seger sang something about the moon being ghostly white.”
Each tour stop will have an individual prize as well as an entry into the grand prize.  Good luck! And thanks for participating!
