Blurb: After losing a leg, former paranormal special ops member and dominant tiger shifter Mike is having trouble coping with his new reality. Mike knows finding a mate isn’t possible for a broken shifter like him. Mike’s ready to live the rest of his life in solitude, until his path collides with Bowen.
Bowen manages to spark a fire in his heart, except Mike knows that sooner or later, the lynx shifter would find him lacking. Bowen’s a rare Omega lynx shifter who’s been on the run his entire life. When fate drops a growly, wounded tiger shifter in his path, he knows he’s met his mach. With enemies on his tail, the last thing he needs is a gorgeous distraction, except Mike becomes more than that.
When the future seems so uncertain, can Bowen find true happiness with his mate or will everything fall apart?
Review: Each book in the Wounded Hearts collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
The first thing I noticed is the beta reader didn’t catch the name of the dead soldier. In book one he was called Wayne but the author wrote it multiple times in this one as Larry. So it needs just a bit of re-editing. Not a big deal but it brought it down just a bit for me. There were a few types of these issues with this book, but other than that sweet.
Mike is a powerful tiger shifter who lost his leg in the fight that also cost him his commander’s arm, another’s eyes, ones hearing and the loss of a friend. Now in civilian life he was having just a bit of trouble figuring out life. Then he comes across his mate.
Bowen has been on the run for some time. He is a lynx shifter that can get pregnant. To top it off he is an omega. One man wants him, but it is only one man he wants. Bowen needs his mate’s help to survive.
It is a very good book that caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.
It does have a few issues, such as what I listed above, but it doesn’t really take away from the story itself. It just felt rushed and for this type of story that isn’t really a good thing. However I still had a lot of fun with it and can’t wait to see what book three will be like.
