Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order. Features characters from the series The Angel Pack.

Dale has never had a good life, until he came to the Angel Pack to spy on them for his father and sister. Which made all the things he did to them that much worse for Dale. The guilt was slowly eating him alive. When he has finally has come to a decision to end his life he meets two men who claim to be his mates. But even than things are far from perfect.

Dare… I did not like him for a good part of the book. He was an emotional wasteland. Of course there are reasons, but still until they are revealed he sucked as a mate. He was distant, uncaring, and just a plan asshole to both his mates, but Dale most of all. He was not understanding of Dale’s needs, and he didn’t really care until he almost lost it all and had faced up. Once that happened, he actually became the mate that both Dale and Dante needed.

Dante is the Prince of the vampires. He is also the rock of the relationship between the three of them. He was understanding and caring of Dale. He took the time even with all that was going on to spend time with Dale and show him that he deserved to be happy. When push came to shove, he was willing to send Dare away in order to make Dale’s life easier and happy. Dante was also not afraid to kick ass when needed. But he could also being very kind and loving.

The book did mostly revolve around the mating issues of Dale, Dare, and Dante, but a whole hell of a lot about the ongoing issues with the rogues was revealed. There is some serious bad shit coming from the looks of it and I can’t wait to read more from both this series and the Angel Pack series. Also, the secrets that were revealed kind of surprised me.

This book was fast paced and the hits kept on coming. New characters of paranormals are introduced, and damn the history behind that is sure to be interesting. I am really digging the world Maggie Walsh has created and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
