Review: Each book in the Itayu Lake collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Logan has always wanted a mate so when he found the place he wanted to be his home. He was shocked to find his mate shortly after. However his mate didn’t want him. He tried to give him time, but after the latest he wasn’t sure any longer. To find out that dragons mate without sex, he does something drastic.
Jared had been raised by a prejudice asshat and was tired of it. He had been told that he could only mate with water dragons, but he realized that he was indeed mated to a cougar. He didn’t know how to fix it, but when he sees what Logan has done he knew he had to do something. He had to help Logan heal and had to heal himself. It turns out that something else had been done to Jared and now they needed their family and friends help to fix it.
This is only the second book by this author that I have read and I can tell you that A.M’s books will go in my automatic favorite pile. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. To me there is nothing better than a good romance, but when it is a paranormal then it hits higher marks to me.
I can’t wait to read the next story.
