Asa Anders never asked be born an alpha but he is and nothing will change that. His wolf is hungry to lead a pack but the Nehalem pack already has an alpha. He loves his new life in Silver Creek and doesn’t want to leave, especially when he moves in next door to his fated mate.

Getting Maurice to admit his feelings is just another obstacle in Asa’s life but he refuses to give up. The love of a good man is what his wolf needs to help control his anger and need to dominate, but will it be enough?

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order.

Overall this was a decent read. But there were some issues for me.
I just didn’t really buy into Maurice and his reasoning for avoiding relationships. He is only twenty years old and seemed too jaded. Also Asa avoiding admitting that they were mates from the start was a little strange to me. Maurice knew all about shifters and mates so I think Asa should have been more up front.

But besides those issues I did enjoy the bantering back and forth the two had with each other. I find many of them funny and entertaining.

Also the sex scenes were pretty damn hot if I do say so.

As always it nice to see favorite characters from other books in the series pop in and out to add their two cents. I really did enjoy the ending and how things all worked out.

So besides some storyline issues that bugged me I did like the book and look forward to more in the series.
