Molly Reviews: Toby and Dalton by Aria Grace and Chris McHart (Truly Yours Book 1)

Finding a shifter mate is tough. Dalton is open to love, but the few dates he’s been on have been terrible. He’s just about to give up on searching for happiness when a young shifter passes by him, providing hope that maybe this time he’ll find love.

Toby has been hurt one too many times. He always picks the wrong men and doesn’t believe he deserves anything better. When his best friend forces him to check out a shifter matchmaking service, he doesn’t have any hope that things could work out for him. Because, why should Dalton be different than the others?

However, fate knows better. And both men might be in for the shock of their lives.

Where To Buy:

This story started out really good. I liked the dating agency aspect of the story. I enjoyed how both Toby and Dalton wound up on their first date. You can feel the sparks between them and those first few tentative emotions as they connect and get to know each other. I adored the two of them falling for each other and building a relationship. Toby was sweet with his insecurities and Dalton was so good at assuaging them. The world was a little confusing but had serious potential to be more and really be fascinating. Around the 60% mark the story takes a turn for the weird and awkward. A storyline was brought in that I didn’t expect at all. It was introduced in a manner that didn’t flow well with the story up to that point. Plus it wasn’t fleshed out as well as it could have been. The scenes were rushed a bit and felt like it was just a hurry up method to get to the end of the story. Toby wound up being rude and a bit of a jerk to his friend during this section and the behavior was brushed off. Then we never find out the who, why, and how of the oddly introduced storyline so I’m left confused by its inclusion. It either should have been removed completely or fleshed out and expanded some. The ending is so sweet. I liked seeing Toby and Dalton together and making their mating work. The way Dalton reacts to a pregnant Toby was so fun. Some parts of the last few scenes were rushed again. However the happily ever after ending makes up for it. I’m curious if the next book in the series will follow the dating agency or the extra storyline. I’ll be looking for the next book to see where this series is headed.
