REVIEW - Thicker Than Water by Becca Seymour

Thicker Than Water is a MM urban fantasy romance featuring a smart-mouthed wolf shifter, who kicks arse and forgets to take names—because life’s too short for that admin sh*t!


Sometimes, choosing a book by its cover works! Let's be fair, look at it! It's different and promising, and I always liked authors who give importance to their cover. 

Sometimes, choosing a book outside your direct immediate interest works too! This is the third time I've read an MM story and I'm happy to say that it's the second I liked it. 

I liked how the fantasy/paranormal aspects and romance parts are both important and contribute to each other. "The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb" is the key to both plans. I liked how the action elements are played and how our main character deals with his vulnerability, and that "Because I'm (he's) badass." His humor comes at the right moments to enrich and substantiate the atmosphere. Started with a boom, the storyline is well handled, there are several surprises or unexpected and I was fully involved in what happened. 

I liked how the love story part debuted and evolved and how the author managed to reach the climax of passion and intimacy with only one or two explicit but delicate moments. What I would have liked is that the transfer between Hazel and Thatch to be more developed, especially giving the title. Callen and Thatch are so different and yet both very, very lovable. I would have liked a hetero story like theirs. 

 I loved all the characters, their diversity as species and how "politically correct" declarations were avoided. Everything is how it should be and we, as human or paranormal individuals, are not defined by our sexual orientations.

Becca Seymour is now on my list of writers to keep an eye on. Straight or gay, I believe many of you will enjoy Thicker than Water! Enjoy!


Release Date: March 14th, 2020

Outcast operative in the Supernatural Investigation & Crime Bureau (SICB) Callen Blackheath finds himself doing what he does best: defying orders and giving his boss a headache in the thick of an operation he shouldn’t be in. And there’s no way he’s walking away, not when the investigation has become deadly personal.

Needing to protect the only family member he has left, this wolf shifter will do whatever it takes to stop the blood farms and destroy the dangerous drugs the vampires will kill for. But he doesn’t expect Liam “Thatch” Thatcher, the head of a special task force team, to receive a bite that pulls him into the center of Callen’s world.

Bonded by memories and blood, together they navigate the operation that has wider reaches than they could ever imagine. And when it comes to matters of the heart, Callen knows in order to win, he needs to risk it all.
