Liam Kantry wants to be with the man he has loved his whole life, yet incessant gossip and innuendos have labeled him the pack whore–a point he has never disputed. Now the rumors have come back to bite him in the arse.
Carlo Bruenelli is waiting for his heart-mate; he’s one of the pack who truly believes they really do exist. In his heart, he wants it to be his best friend, only problem is he knows Liam doesn’t believe in heart-mates. What will it take to change Liam’s mind? And should he even try?
Christmas is drawing near, and between snowball fights and the inter-pack gathering, Liam and Carlo find themselves caught up in the excitement and obsessing over what their future holds. Especially when a small child forms a bond with them. They learn there is more out there than they ever dreamt was possible.
Can Liam and Carlo work around the newness of their own mating to protect someone who needs it most?

Review: Carlo seemed like a sweet young man who knew what he wanted, his heart mate. Carlo has been in love with Liam for a while. But he doesn’t think Liam feels the same about him especially with all the rumors by Marcus, Liam’s brother, about Liam’s conquests.
Liam has been in love with Carlo for a very long time. But he’s had to wait until Carlo was of age to let his feelings known. His brother has made it hard for Liam with all the rumors he’s told Carlo. Carlo doesn’t believe that Liam wants him at first because of them.
Sweet story of two males who love each other but are afraid the other won’t feel the same. Liam should have put a stop to the rumors about his conquests when they first started. It shocked me after they got together and baby Torren was only quiet with them. It was amazing that Torren was not a full wolf. I’m glad they decided to keep him with them.
Hot sex, snowball fights, and huge gathering of wolves from different packs made for an interesting read. The truth about who Torren was fascinated me. It was an interesting twist late in the book that someone or a group of someone’s has deadly intentions for the baby and the Fae. All in all, it was a very good read and I’m looking forward to the next book to see what happens next.
