Cornelius Roister doesn’t believe in being in the closet. He’s a bit of flirt, using his teasing nature to keep control when guys show an interest in him, without getting close enough to get hurt again. This tactic work fine until he visits his friend Gus and meets his mate, Einan, a gargoyle enforcer. His flirtatious nature isn’t understood or appreciated by his new mate, leading to more than one argument. Can he and Einan learn to talk through their issues or will their mating fail?

Taming the Enforcer’s Flirt is the latest release in Charlie Richards’ A Paranormal’s Love series.

Talk about baggage. Cornelius has enough to doom almost any relationship. It’s too bad it interferes with nearly every aspect of his life and truthfully I would have preferred an explanation earlier in the plot. But even so, the author creates a good opposite for him in Einan. This gargoyle mate has a well developed personality—he’s even a bit gruff—but he’s just what Cornelius needs to feel safe. Ms. Richards does a good job expressing their misunderstandings and frustrations—and then there’s the sizzling make-up sex. I can’t forget that. 

I like the pairing of another rhino shifter and a gargoyle. Bringing Cornelius’ ex back at the end of the story is a nice twist. He makes an excellent villain. Those scenes are some of my favorites because of their action and danger, but the resolution seems a bit quick. I’m happy with the introduction of Vane during this section and hope he’ll be featured in a future release.
