Blurb: After losing an arm in the war, dominant lion shifter Abram is suffering from PTSD and having trouble adapting to civilian life. His sessions with his therapist, Kane, are the only things he looks forward to.
Sparks ignite after one accidental kiss. When Kane decides it’s unprofessional to keep seeing Abram, all the cards come down and Abram’s lion goes on a prowl. Abram might be one broken vet, but his lion knows Kane is his mate and letting go is not an option.
Omega cat shifter Kane has a huge problem. He’s had a massive crush on Abram since the wounded vet entered his life. When keeping things professional between them no longer works, Kane bolts, terrified of the intense attraction between them.
Kane gives Abram quite a chase, but he soon realizes that lions are persistent hunters—and when it comes to the matters of the heart, only a fool would refuse the mating bond.
Review: Each book in the Wounded Hearts collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Dominant alpha shifters do not do well when they are no longer at the top of their game. They see any weakness as a loss, but the shifters in this story find that it is not always truth. Five soldiers go to war but only 4 come back alive. Abram was the one in charge and came back with the loss of his arm. To top it off he has flash backs and is trying to survive his new life as a civilian.
Kane is the opposite of Abram. He is definitely not a alpha type male, but he is bound and determined to get Abram to live in the now. That is until one kiss, and sends him running. Too bad now he has a very big lion coming after his mate.
I have not had the chance to read many stories from this author, but I have to say that this story does hit a chord. It was well rounded and full of description that definitely catches my attention. In fact my attention was caught from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. I enjoyed reading it and can’t wait to get started on the next book.
