The only ones who know Kai is a shifter is his group of college friends.  While on vacation, the last thing he expects is to end up in a hunter’s trap that then leads to meeting his mate.  Dorian is shocked to have finally met his mate, but he is surprised to learn the younger man knows nothing of shifters, including what it means to be a mate. 

Educating the Platypus is Ms. Richards newest addition to the Kontra’s Menagerie series.  This story starts with everyone still in Kansas when Dorian, a new addition to Kontra’s pack, comes across his mate.  I like that the author has paired this serious shifter with Kai, who is so innocent in the ways of shifters that it helps Dorian to lighten up some.  There is a strong attraction between the two men and I love the way Kai reacts after the two have been separated for a short period of time.  

Educating the Platypus is a fast-paced read.  There are a variety of secondary characters, some old and some new that help move the story along.  The story does have a bit of unfinished feel to it, but the way it ends definitely leaves the series open to several more stories.  Fans of this series will want to make sure to pick up this book.
