Blurb:ย Nate Smith is a wild omega. A tormented past changed the course of his life forever, making him less than human, with almost no control and a fear of being touched. Had he not been taken in by the Greywolf pack, he would most definitely be dead by now. His lust for an alpha wolf Orion eats at him. After suffering his trauma, Nate was left with a fear of being penetrated, and alphas want to dominate by their very nature.

Orion has always felt protective of Nate, even though the former human made a habit of being alone. Itโ€™s difficult for an alpha when his mate refuses his touch and canโ€™t control his wolf. Orion knows he can cure Nateโ€™s wild wolf if he would just let Orion in.

But if Orion pushes it, he will chase his mate away from him, and if he does nothing, he risks losing Nate to his feral instincts.

Review: Because of what happened to Nate he has been fighting with his nature regarding Alpha wolf Orion. Orion takes this slow and steady. Giving Nate the time he needs. I liked this story and thought the interactions between Nate and Orion were sweet and considerate.

Orin also shows up in this story with a mate but disappears shortly after. We find out there was more going on with him that we did not know.

Entertaining and interesting. Good read.

Blurb:ย Owen Wilson (yes, just like the actor, don’t mention it) has spent the last six months of his

life in a vampire blood farm. He’s on the verge of giving up until rescue comes from an unlikely source: Alpha werewolves.

Great, not only do vampires exist, but werewolves, too? Though he can’t complain, they are rescuing him, and one of them heats Owen’s blood in a way he never would have thought possible.

Hugh Greywolf was just doing a routine take down of a vampire farm with the rest of his pack. He never in a million years would have thought he’d find his mate in that horrifying place. Owen is skinny and malnourished, but Hugh needs to make the claim. Enjoying their mating might come to an end when the vampires track down their stolen cattle, and when they come for Owen, Hugh might be too late to keep them from bleeding Owen dry for good.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This story starts with Hugh and Fergus already at a vampire farm. How they got there I have no idea. This question plagued me all throughout the book as I felt I missed something. Owen has been in the vampires clutches for ix months and is practically dead on his feet.

Sparks fly when these two meet. Hugh takes care of him and explains what is going on. Owen is happy to be with Hugh, then during a hunt Owen is almost killed by a vampire.

We are introduced to Trey, Owen’s friend. But still do not get a lot about the man.

It was an o.k. read.

So he’s shocked when Glendon introduces himself and asks him out on a date.

Jake has never been happier, until his boss dumps an extra shift on him, forcing him to cancel, and a creature attacks him while taking out the trash. FML, can this night get any worse?

When all hope seems lost, a huge wolf comes to his rescue, and transforms into Glendon. He’s an alpha werewolf, and he’s in a thousand year war between the vampires and werewolves.

Now that Glendon found his mate, the vampires will stop at nothing to get what they want from him, including killing Jake, and coming after the unborn child Glendon has every intention of putting inside him.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: When Jake meets Glendon he thinks his life is turning out better than he expected until he is attacked after work. Coming to in a house he is unfamiliar with sets his nerves on edge until Glendon explains some things.

This story introduces us to a whole cast of characters and how things are in this world of vampires and werewolves. Although I liked the story it felt as though information was missing and the story felt rushed. I have already read the next book and even though it is connected there is a huge gap between this book and the next.

I wanted more details into the planning of the war with the vampire queen and none of that happened. Jakes friend is also in this story along with Fergus who had to bite him to save him from a vampire bite. These two are at odds with each other.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Ronan and Trey try to overcome their misunderstandings in each other while at the same time Trey come to grips with being told he is pregnant. An attack sends the house on lockdown and Fergus pushes Parker a little too far.

While I enjoyed the story there was not much in the way of action in this book. But there was plenty of drama to be had by all. Looking forward to seeing what else happens with the pack in further books.

Good read.
