My Favourite Queer Romanace of 2021 So Far – Review

โฃThicker than Water by Becca Seymour is a fast paced, MUST READ queer paranormal shifter romance.

An outcast shifter agent. A ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฝ-๐˜€๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜-๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ-๐—ฏ๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜ kind of guy more than a follow procedure guy. Gets seconded to a secret unit. Crazy sexy chemistry with his boss. Amazing relationships and banter. This has been my favourite queer romance of the year so far. I got all the feels.


Outcast operative in the Supernatural Investigation & Crime Bureau (SICB) Callen Blackheath finds himself doing what he does best: defying orders and giving his boss a headache in the thick of an operation he shouldnโ€™t be in. And thereโ€™s no way heโ€™s walking away, not when the investigation has become deadly personal.

Needing to protect the only family member he has left, this wolf shifter will do whatever it takes to stop the blood farms and destroy the dangerous drugs the vampires will kill for. But he doesnโ€™t expect Liam โ€œThatchโ€ Thatcher, the head of a special task force team, to receive a bite that pulls him into the centre of Callenโ€™s world.

Bonded by memories and blood, together they navigate the operation that has wider reaches than they could ever imagine. And when it comes to matters of the heart, Callen knows in order to win, he needs to risk it all.

This was my second book for the B.A.B.E Reasing Challenge for May 2021 and my goodness. I have no regrets about starting this book club/ challenge thing.
Becca Seymour has put a ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ถ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ป on how shifters are turned that I haven’t read before and I was 100% here for it. โฃ
The ensemble ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—ฏ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—น๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜. I was invested in everyone. The ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—บ, ๐—ต๐˜‚๐—บ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐˜๐˜† ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ throughout the relationships, and Callen’s monologue was hilarious and I found myself laughing out loud a few times. โฃ
I’m aware I haven’t stated anything about the romance. That is because it is so good, ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ท๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐˜ and see it all play out. Just know that it involves one of the ๐—บ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ณ๐˜๐˜€ ๐—œ’๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ.โฃ
This was everything I didn’t know I needed and gave me all of the feels ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ. I want more of this series so badly!!!โฃ
