Blurb: Ever since his entire pack was cursed a thousand years ago, Nicodemus has spent most of his incarceration on Lykaios Island in deep reflection. Once hot-headed, ill-tempered, and even a little bit violent, Nicodemus has reformed and is attempting to be the best man he can be, especially around a certain man who has piqued his interest. He doesn’t want to be the monster he believes that his people were once said to become.
Addison Clarke has spent two years of his life on Lykaios, escaping a horrendous past that still haunts him every day of his life. Despite having to look over his shoulder every moment of every day, his attraction to Nicodemus is instantaneous. The reformed soldier is everything he needs: solid, stable, and attentive.
But with the threat of Addison’s past looming over them, can Nicodemus’s stability and reformed ways be enough to make sure their relationship survives the coming trials?

Review: Each book in the Lykaios collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
I must admit that this series has a different type of tone to it that makes it a bit off to me. Although it doesn’t take away from the story at all. The first time I read Frey was with the first book to this series, and at first I wasn’t sure what to expect. The gods cursed them to spend his life on Lykaois Island. After a thousand years though, fate decided it was time to let the guys love and receive love. To find their mates after so long is a blessing for the guys.
Nicodemus was a warrior all the way. He was strong-willed and strong in body. He was an ass, hot and ill-tempered most of the time. However after a thousand years he finally grew up. All he wanted was his mate, especially after watching his alpha and another pack mate find their mates. He knew who his mate was. He just had to get the courage to approach Addison.
Addison worked for the company that was building the hotel on Lykaois Island. He had been in a relationship that was not healthy for him. He had needed to escape and he had done that. Two years and he still felt like he was going to be forced back. Then he has found out that he is mated to one of the sexy wolves. Now he just had to let Nico know what was going on and pray that it would be ok. He should have known that wolves mate for life.
This book just grabs your attention from the moment you start reading and keeps it there till you have read every word. Hell my attention is caught by the cover right off the bat. This book gave me everything I could ask for in a story and so much more.
I loved this one and cannot wait for the next amazing story.
