Title: Conway
Author: D. J. Manly
Publisher: Amber Allure
ISBN: 978-1-61124-188-4
Genre: {M/M} Werewolf
Rating: 5 Nymphs
Literary Nymphs Reviewer: Chocolate Minx   

Detective Ryan Hubbard of the NYPD is frustrated and losing sleep.  His murder investigation is at a dead end.  Victim case files, as well as possible witnesses, have disappeared and finding Conway at the apartment of a missing witness leads Ryan to a world he never dreamed existed, along with a relationship he never thought he would ever have. 

Conway is a short story that blends suspense and humor into a superb plot.  The characters are creditable.  Ryan loves being a detective and works hard at solving murder cases.  Ryan’s dedication to work leaves little time for a social life, so Ryan has little hope of having a long term boyfriend.  Conway is a fun loving werewolf, who is also a serious paranormal law enforcer.  The storyline exhibits a fantastic interaction between Ryan and Conway, who are more alike than different.  Ryan is a little snarky, as well as hard to convince regarding Conway’s true nature.  Conway is content being with Ryan and refuses to leave his side. 

Conway is a bit of a surprising departure from D. J. Manly’s customary writing style.  Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed these exceptionally entertaining as well as heartwarming characters. I hope to revisit them again in the future.
