THE PROBLEM CLIENT by KP MAXWELL
An irresistible client. A carnal arrangement. What if he doesn’t want it to end?
Damien Lambert has been working at trendy Café Seuil in Portland, Oregon, for several years to pay off some old debt. By day, he helps manage the café’s daily operations along with his handsome coworkers. By night, well… let’s just say that there’s more than coffee on the menu.
On the floor above the café, mysterious, magic doors open to hosting rooms where the café’s employees take clients and satisfy their darkest desires. When Damien has finally paid off all of the debt from his past, he’s looking for a fresh start. But there’s one client left that he just can’t seem to say no to.…
The Problem Client is the first book in a steamy urban paranormal romance series following the men of Café Seuil and their male clientele.
To be honest books about shifters are always so-so for me. I never seen to enjoy them because they never seem to be done right, especially when mates are involved which is why I absolutely loved The Problem Client. Everything about it was utter perfection.
KP Maxwell did everything right. The world building was extensive and explained well. The characters, all of them, had real depth and served a purpose. The book was made better because of the relationship that existed outside of the romance.
The romance was fantastic though. I enjoyed every high and low along with Damien and Ty as they fumbled their way to a much deserved happily ever after. There was just enough jealousy and possessiveness to come off as love and desire. Unlike a lost of shifter books featuring mates it wasn't about staking a claim or sex—funny enough considering Damien's job and how he met Ty.
Damien and Ty came together naturally with the aid of the magic doors and that extra spark being mates gave them. It wasn’t all smooth sailing but I enjoyed seeing an alpha wolf who could be grow-ly and possessive but was also respectful and apologetic when he was obviously in the wrong.
I'm looking forward to reading book two, The Fake Boyfriend!
