Review: Off Course (Coyote’s Call #1) by Bailey Bradford

Gideon’s worst night ever starts out with a bang that will change his whole life.

Gideon Wells has been cast out of his bear shifter clan for being a curse, and he’s inclined to believe they’re right. After all, everything from fertility rates to shifting abilities have gone down the tube since he was born. Then when his car catches fire and mutant scorpions—he thinks they’re mutants, anyway—almost get him, he’s more certain than ever that he’s bad news.

Not that he’s just going to roll over and die.

Ignoring a prophecy might not be wise, but coyote shifter Miller Hudson has seen and heard too many false prophecies to put any faith in the one proclaiming him to be the alpha and, along with a mystery bear mate, the saviour of the now-defunct coyote den he grew up in. Besides, there’s no need for the den to be brought back together. None of them can shift, so what’s the point?

Then the buzzards circling overhead on the far edge of his property lead him to the very last thing he ever expected to find.

Reader Advisory: This book contains references to and threats of assault and rape, scenes of fisting and mild BDSM.

Off CourseCast out of his pack for being a curse, Gideon Wells’ worst night ever starts out with a bang and leads him to the very last thing he ever expected in this mesmerizing paranormal m/m shifter romance.

A fast pace and smooth flowing plot has readers shivering in anticipation with lots of suspense, excitement and passion. The well written scenes and details capture the imagination and the suspense draws the reader deeper into the story while the fascinating story and captivating characters ensure that the reader wants to know everything.

Gideon captures the reader’s heart along with Miller’s as the two help each other heal their self doubts and insecurities and the reader can’t help but get caught up their romance as their passion erupts in frequent fiery hot and steamy sex scenes including some very kinky scenes.

The story is an emotionally gripping tale that brings some disturbing prejudices to light and shows how people can come together to overcome those things. Dangerous threats and a prophecy including a bear mate adds lots of spice and excitement to the story and along with all the passionate encounters ensures that the reader never gets bored and I was completely caught up in the story from the very beginning and I can’t wait to read the next story in Bailey Bradford’s new series.

Going Off Course

Hi, I’m Bailey and I’ve got a new series out, Coyote’s Call. The first book is Off Course. It introduces everyone to Miller Hudson, a coyote shifter incapable of shifting, and Gideon Wells, a bear shifter with sensory issues who’s been cast out of his clan. He makes a wrong turn and goes off course, which ends up working for him.

And that’s what I’m writing about today—going off course. Apply it where you will, but I have a few examples of when going off an intended course has worked out well, though today I’ll just focus on one.

Every now and then, taking a risk can reap benefits you’d never have gained otherwise. Now, I’m not talking about anything dangerous, and it’s not for everyone. Some people do best sticking to a very detailed plan. I don’t.

Chaos helps me to be more productive, as when things are wonky around me, focusing on writing is a release and relief from the chaos. So it does help me to concentrate, and lose myself in what I’m writing. This means sometimes I can sit down and write over 20k in one sitting. That may be about nineteen hours of work, but it happens on occasion. I tend to write in great clusters, although usually closer to 15k a day once I’m going. It’s much like reading for me: I sit down, read until I’m done because I don’t like breaking the flow of the story. Same with writing. What that has to do with going off course? Well, I always plan to write a few thousand words a day on a story, take my time, relax…that very rarely works for me.

I suppose writing is such a creative process for me that it’s easier to let it just come to me. It’s probably no surprise that I’m not a plotter. Of course there are story threads in series that must be continued from book to book, and those I do plot. When it comes to character development and other themes and events in the books, those I just let come along as I write.

So, going off course a little works for me. What about you? Are you more of a planner, a pantser, or a plotter in life?
