Title: A Sliver of Sunset
From one-night stand to nurse and patient—is it crazy to expect more?
Angelo has somehow developed leukemia—the only paranormal ever known to do so—and the doctors are mystified as to the cause. The cure requires him to repress his shifter side with a chemical inhibitor and be entirely human while he goes through chemotherapy, which contributes to some interesting situations he never would have foreseen—things like ‘misplacing’ his favorite bar, Unconventional, and getting picked up by a human without realizing it’s his mate.
Dominic can’t believe his luck when bravely striking up a conversation with the hottest guy he’s ever seen leads to the best sex he’s ever had. When he wakes up—no surprise—Angelo is gone. A week later, he’s shocked when he walks in to meet a new oncology patient to find Angelo fighting for his life and dependent upon his care.
Will their timing ever improve, or will Angelo’s time run out before they get a chance?

Angelo, one of the first paranormal to ever get sick, has just found out he has leukemia. He decides to ditch his overbearing, yet totally loving sister, to go to Unconventional. This bar specifically caters to the paranormal, so why can’t he find it? Dominic,who has watched Angelo pace back and forth decides he just has to meet Angelo, especially after his week from hell at the hospital. Sparks fly from first touch but the timing could have not been worse.
This novella has a lot packed into it without it being cluttered or overwhelming. I first read about Unconventional in Coming in Third by Amber Kell (part of an anthology) and I thought it was fun and was glad there was more stories to it. We briefly meet Angelo in Coming in Third and I was happy to see he got a story as well.
With it being a short read I was able to read it on my lunch break and let’s just say that was a big no-no. I love M/M romance because sometimes with M/F romance there is not enough intensity. A Sliver of Sunset had a lot of intensity that left me blushing. This was my first Devon Rhodes book and if they are all like this I will definitely be reading more of her books later. What I enjoyed about this book is that it had some sweet spots to balance out the heat. The secondary characters were great and fun to read about.
However, some parts had felt like they could have gone into more depth; whether it was on Dominic’s side of the story or more on Angelo’s work history. Overall, a nice, steamy read to spice up any part of the day.
I was given a copy of this book as from The Jeep Diva in exchange for an honest review.
