Jordan loves his brother Freddy, but he hates that Freddy has fallen into a life of crime to make sure Jordan didn’t. He especially hates it when Freddy’s competitors try to get to Freddy through him, because unlike Freddy, he never learned more than the basics to fight and defend himself. So when he’s attacked, he shifts into his flamingo form and flies away, ending up wounded in the bushes behind a house.
Angelo left Italy and the mate who rejected him decades ago. He’s built himself a new life in Gillham, but he can’t help regretting he doesn’t have a man by his side. When a flamingo crashes into his bushes, he’s astounded to find out the bird the man shifts into is his mate, because it shouldn’t be possible. Angelo’s mate is in Italy, happily married. Right?
Jordan and Angelo hit it off from the start, but Freddy is in danger. The men after him won’t stop trying to get to him, even though he now has the council’s protection. Will Angelo manage to keep both Jordan and Freddy safe, or will he lose his mate for the second time?
Review: Each book in the Council Enforcers collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Jordan clean’s school buildings while his brother leads a life of crime. It is not a world either truly wanted, but their father and grandfather were the ones who pushed them into it. Freddy had decided he would do it, so that Jordan was free and clear. That didn’t mean someone out there didn’t want to take out Freddy by way of Jordan. Jordan runs like his brother suggested, but damn if he is going to leave him behind. Just his luck he finds his mate, a mate that just so happens to be a council enforcer.
Angelo had met his mate so many years before only to be rejected for a woman. In the times past, their relationship would have never been allowed so it was easier for his mate to say no. He was now a council enforcer in Gillham, but damn he wanted what those around him had. To his surprise he gets his wish, when a pink flamingo just lands in his bushes.
There is nothing better then a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. They are entertaining and have just the right mix of feelings in them. There is also quite a bit of danger or excitement in it as well. This one caught my attention and kept it all the way to the very end. I love the mixture of characters that this story and the other ones have in it. Will always keep you entertained.
I love the way this author puts together a story that not only draws you in but keeps you entertained as well. They have a serious tone to them, but there is a bit of humor floating around. I do get a kick out of the whole thing. I can’t wait to read the next book.
