Blurb: Life isn’t meant to be easy, but for Zachary Bennet the last two years have been downright hell. The one shining light in his life, his precious daughter, Hayley. Deciding he needs a clean break, Zack gets a new job in a small town called Leyburn in the hopes they can settle down and live a peaceful life.
Between worry over one brother’s increasingly erratic behavior and constantly walking in on the other two making out with their mates, Simon Holland is ready to pull his hair out. All he’d ever wanted in life was a mate and a family. When his wish is finally answered with Zack’s arrival, Simon finds out first-hand how far hate and bigotry can drive some people. But life wasn’t meant to be easy and Simon would protect what was his to the end.
Review: This book has been re-edited. Toni has such a wonderful way with telling a story. She has such a gift with giving someone characters who they can just fall in love with and want to cheer them all the way. They have the abilities to overcome all the pain and anger from their past and move forward in their life. To be able to fall in love and create a loving family.
Zach is just a sweet, loving, and compassionate werewolf who had a loving childhood. He had met his best friend Sarah in high school. When Sarah got diagnosed with cancer, all she wanted was to be a mother. Zach agreed and became the father of a beautiful daughter Hayley. Two years later, Sarah’s family tried everything they could to take Hayley from Zach. So he moved to Leyburn where he met his mate Simon. Simon has always wanted a mate. He was slowly falling in love with Zach and was already in love with his new daughter Hayley. Simon is loving, kind, gentle and very protective. Simon will give everything in him to protect his mate and daughter. The sex is passionate, hot, and very tender, well most of the time. There are times when it is downright hot, fast and rough, just enough to set the sheets on fire.
This story has the perfect amount of danger, excitement, adventure, and kidnapping. I love how the characters can turn the misfortune and pain into compassion, empathy, and loyalty. I love to lose myself into stories when the problems of life get too hard to overcome. I especially love it when it involves two very hot and sexy men who just happen to be able to turn into wolves. This story shows you also what sometimes happen when a love one comes out. The hatred and bigotry that is shown and how the right people can make those who are full of hate disappear. It shows that with acceptance and love that it is possible to have a happy and full life with those you love. When this story first came out it was one of my favorites and since Toni added more to it, just makes it better. I am so glad to have this story in my library so that I can read it over and over. I can’t wait for the next story to come out. I would recommend starting with book one and buying the whole series because you won’t be disappointed.
