In this world, were-animal shifters are well known. There is not any conflict or animosity between were-animals and humans.
Branch is an elephant shifter living and working at a safari resort. He loves his bachelor life and is not looking for a mate.
Maura is vacationing at the resort where Branch works. It should have been her honeymoon, but her fiancé left her. Seeing her high school crush Branch, causes all kinds of emotions but she is conflicted about whether or not to act on them.
This book was lacking something for me. I was probably too excited to read it because it was an elephant shifter romance. I never read about an elephant shifter. I wanted it to be good. An ELEPHANT SHIFTER!!! I cannot convey exactly how much I wanted this story to work. Instead, it was okay. The word “corny” also comes to mind.
It is hard to explain all the reasons for my lackluster feeling but it came down to this
The villain seemed more cartoonish than Wil e coyote.
Branch goes from Mr Playa to Me-love-you-long-time in a matter of PAGES!!!
Let’s not forget that Maura was very recently dumped by her fiancé. She is most definitely on the rebound.
My biggest annoyance with this book is the title. I feel it was click bait. The title is “Elephants never forget”, BUT Branch the elephant shifter “couldn’t remember ever saying anything“ to Maura in high school.
“He was drawing a total blank” even though they were in the same graduating class.
By that point, I was done. How can you have an elephant shifter, a title “Elephants Never Forget” and the elephant hero CANNOT REMEMBER the one girl from high school that he is supposedly madly in love with now.
