Blurb: Simon finds himself captured by a man who wants to torture him. Instead, Minzhe lets him go. There’s just one small catch. Simon doesn’t want to return home. His abusive uncle is waiting for him. Being gay is a sin, according to his uncle, and Ned is on the warpath.
Minzhe doesn’t know what to do with Simon. He wants to know why Deuce used the human, but interrogating his mate leaves a bad taste in his mouth. He decides finding answers can wait, only to discover the abuse Simon has already suffered through. Determined to keep his mate from any further harm, Minzhe goes after the uncle. Only it isn’t just the uncle out to get Simon. Shady deals have been made and there are a few men who are out to get their hands on Simon’s inheritance, an inheritance Simon knows nothing about.

Review: Each book in the Brac Pack Next Gen collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. In fact I would recommend reading the very first series that leads you to this one. Brac Pack is branched off into several other series that will lead you to this one. These are the stories of the children from the originals. You are in for a bit of fun.
I came across Lynn Hagen when she wrote her very first book for the Brac Pack series and never looked back. You will meet a group of alpha’s that want the love of their mates. They live many centuries and their mates make their lives better and a bit interesting. Most of the time they have their serious tones but there is quite a bit of humor mixed in with them that make them even more fascinating for me. Each story will have danger, excitement, adventure, and a touch of kink to them that will keep your attention the whole time, like it does for me.
Minzhe is Christian’s oldest son and has two other fathers. After the attack, Minzhe managed to catch one of them to interrogate, but finds out that not everything is as it seems. The man was as innocent and clueless as one could be. He also just so happens to be Minzhe’s mate. Then he finds out that his little mate’s life has been horrible. He has been abused by his uncle. Minzhe is going to make sure his mate heals and never sees harm again. That is as soon as he kicks some serious ass.
Simon has been abused by his uncle for so long, but only assumes it is because he is gay. Turns out there are some major secrets being held. All he wants his to live happily with his cat, but it doesn’t appear to be what is to happen. Even though the sexy man wants answers, he is attracted to Minzhe. Won’t he be in for a big shock; the man is a vampire and his mate.
I love how Lynn doesn’t let the guys become too much alpha for their mates, making their heart bleed when they are hurt and for kicking their own asses when they hurt their mates. I have always enjoyed reading one of Lynn Hagen’s stories and I can see that it will not change in the future. I also loved how these men will go to the extremes to get the ones the love back.
