Whitetail Rock by Anne Tenino
Nikhil “Nik” Larson is a snarky, dark-skinned adoptee from India who grew up in the Whitest Town in America. Back to visit his parents Nik meets Trooper Jurgen Dammerung, a blond, butch motorcycle cop who’s so hot he leaves a con trail wherever he goes.
Jurgen is the epitome of everything Nik hated about growing up the lone Indian boy among a town of white people. But Jurgen surprises him rather (ahem) pleasantly, in spite of — or because of — Nik’s attempts to needle him. By the end of his visit, Nik realizes he likes Jurgen. But Jurgen’s so not the relationship type.
This was a short humorous read. I love snarky characters, they are just so fun! Nik is snarky. The writing was good, shallow, but it was a short read. I would have loved to have seen a little more from Jurgen’s point of view but with the way the story was written it would have been impossible even if the author tried. There was no real lead up to the story and the setting was non-existent. I also have doubts about the relationship and love. Nik seems to have no trust and I’m not sure why, other than for sex, he likes Jurgen. I also thought that Jurgen staying with Nik with Nik’s attitude was a little…off. It happens but it’s not exactly what I think of romance. Still I did love the characters Nik and Sam were funny and cute, confusing at times as well. I think they really made the story.
