Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Vasal has been hunting for the man who killed his family and broke him for many years. Along with that he has been hiding his feelings for his best friend Mason. Mason is the son of the Alpha. He has always felt like he never belonged. He has always loved his best friend Vasal but has buried his feelings for him.

There were a lot of twists and turns throughout the story that had me on the edge of my seat. Vasal and Mason struggled with their feelings for one another as the story progressed. But when the past comes back full force Vassal will do anything to get back the man he loves.

I loved this story full of interesting situations and intense scenes. I did wonder exactly what happened to Vasal and his family years before as we were given glimpses only. Aside form that it was an amazing story.

Dark, mysterious and tense scenes give the reader a wonderfully written story that keeps the attention well to the end and beyond. I am looking forward to the next addition to the series.

Highly recommended.
