Blurb: For fated mates, going from friends to lovers should be a smooth transition, but Ladon and Magnus have never had things easy.
At twenty years old, Ladon knows he’s too young to be Saint Lakes’ Alpha, but no one listens. Not even his mate, Magnus, and he’s Ladon’s best friend. Magnus is out of town on a dangerous investigative mission when Ladon shifts for the first time. They’ve waited years for this day, because they couldn’t bond until it happened. Almost as soon as it does, Magnus goes MIA, leaving Ladon to wonder if it just isn’t in the cards for them.
Review: Each book in the Saint Lakes collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Ladon is one hell of a powerful dragon shifter and he hasn’t even shifted yet. He knows who his mate is, but his mate has a few issues. One is Ladon’s age, he is a twenty year old who is going to be the alpha of their crazy family. A family that is more than one kind of paranormal. When Magnus goes missing after an argument with Ladon, Ladon has no clue what to do.
Magnus is pretty much the investigator for them all and will kill when needed. He can get into any place without trouble but trouble finds him. This is one mating that is not so easy.
I love this series but I will admit that Ladon doesn’t come off as an alpha. He might have the power to back it, but his emotions sure do get him into trouble. This story caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. You get action, danger, excitement, and some hot sexy times in this story and much more. I would say Magnus needs his ass kicked by his mate, but then again the same could be said for Ladon.
I had a blast reading this and can not wait to get my hands on the next book. I would definitely recommend not only this book but this author.
