Blurb: A widowed alpha finds something unexpected with a rescued, pregnant omega…

Two years after his longtime mate passed away, Senior Constable Isa Higgs lives for his work solving crimes and protecting the citizens of Sansbury Province—and he won’t admit to anyone that he’s lonely. His three beta sons barely speak to him, he has no real friends to speak of, and his home feels too empty most nights. When he helps free five omega prisoners from a life of torture and abuse, Isa is unexpectedly drawn to one in particular—an omega six months pregnant with another alpha’s child.

Liam Haley lost everything in one single tragedy—his family, his freedom, and his ability to make choices. And then he’s whisked out of hell by an alpha constable twice his age who should terrify Liam, but instead, the man makes him feel safe. Protected. Wanted. But Liam is carrying a child he isn’t sure he wants to keep, and the last thing he needs is to get attached to a widowed alpha who can’t possibly want him back…right?

With Liam pregnant and Isa previously mated, neither man is sure exactly what they’re feeling—only the more time they spend together, the closer they become. And Liam is still sorting through the trauma of his kidnapping, so friendship is their only recourse—until someone from Liam’s past shows up to claim what he believes is his. Now Isa has to choose between letting Liam go, or fighting like hell for the damaged, young omega he’s unexpectedly fallen in love with.

NOTE: This is a non-shifter Omegaverse story with alpha/omega/beta dynamics, heats, knotting, and mpreg. In this world, omegas are second-class citizens with few civil rights and almost no protections under the law. Trigger warnings for physical, emotional, and sexual abuse.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Liam is rescued along with other pregnant omegas from a fight ring. He does not trust anyone except for Higgs. Scared and uncertain of what the future holds in store for him he turns to Higgs for comfort. Higgs is unsure of what he feels for Liam and considering the age difference he is not sure it’s a good idea to act on his feelings.

Higgs has three children, all in school. He lost his mate a few years ago and has been lonely so he buries himself in his work. The problem is he’s pushed his kids away. With Liam comes a new understanding of his children.

When an alpha makes a claim on Liam, Higgs will do anything to make sure Liam never suffers abuse again. I loved these two together. I also liked the fact that none of the couples just fall into bed after the first meeting like most books. Each has suffered didn’t indignities. The omegas need time to adjust an find themselves after the horrific events of their pasts.

I loved that the alpha mates gave these omegas time, patience and understanding given their circumstances. Another great addition to an ongoing series that ties all the characters together in a well written emotional saga.

Chasing Eddie

(Golden Gate Love 03)
by

Frank W Butterfield

January 29, 2019

Eddie Smith is a chubby bear of a guy who lives in Daytona Beach and doesn’t work much anymore but isn’t retired.

Whit Hall has just retired as a tight end for an NFL expansion team and lives in San Antonio.

At 52, Eddie feels at home with himself and has learned how to roll with life. He’s happy enough where he is and doesn’t expect much to happen anytime soon.

At 35, Whit is ready for a life that put less of a strain on his body. He’s banked plenty of dough but doesn’t know what to do next.

. . .

About to sit down to his favorite take-out lasagna, Eddie gets a call from a friend who wants to hire him to help Whit figure out what’s next in his life.

Eddie is a kinda, sorta life coach and might be able to help but seriously doubts it.

Reluctantly, he climbs aboard his friend’s private jet and flies to San Antonio. Once he arrives, he ends up getting a whole lot more than he bargained for. Whit Hall is aggressive, he’s angry, and he’s under a lot of pressure.

It’s a good thing Eddie (sorta) knows what he’s doing!

. . .

Now that he’s retired, Whit is looking for the next thing.

He’s set, with plenty of bank. And he’s doing what he can to deal with his parents, who are all up in his business. A lot.

Then, one Wednesday morning, he opens his front door. Before he knows it, Whit is chasing Eddie Smith out of his house, down the street, and even further.

It’s a good thing Whit is (kinda) in shape for this new type of chase!

. . .

Neither man wants to go far…

But unexpected changes are chasing them both…

Wherever they end up going, and whatever ends up happening, this will be the beginning of something new and wonderful for them both.

This 45K word stand-alone contemporary male/male (MM) romance involves a chubby bear guy and a retired professional football player.

Included:

Some tension…
Hints of a coming-out story…
Medium-heat sexual descriptions…
Slightly nerdy details…
Some metaphysics…
And a HEA (that’s a happily-ever-after)…

Not included:

Much angst…
Graphic sexual descriptions…
A cliff-hanger…

This story is the beginning of a series of contemporary romantic adventures. It ends with the start of one of those, so there are some loose plot points but no cliff-hanger.

Topics: virgin, virgin hero, out for you, first time romance, mid-life transformation, innocent first timer, late bloomer

. . .

Golden Gate Love Stories are all about the lives and loves of men who fall in love with each other and find the one they were waiting for.

Set in the same universe as the Nick Williams Mystery Series and the Daytona Beach Book Series, these love stories focus on the men who come together, find true love, and really do live happily ever after.

Blurb: Marius Everhart is something even mages fear — a shadowmancer. His power marks him as cursed, a creature belonging to the Queen of Shadows. Marius escaped her realm with his memories corrupted and his sanity in tatters, managing to live a fragile, lonely existence at the edges of society.

Some might call Ayodele Sauveterre delusional. He prefers the term “optimistic”. With his homeland in danger from invasion, Ayodele will do anything to protect it, even recruit a shadowmancer. Marius’s incredible power and gentle nature make him a perfect addition to Paladin Charm, a new mage guild dedicated to helping rather than exploiting the non-magical populace. The fact that handsome Marius also warms Ayodele’s bed is a wonderful bonus.

With support from Ayodele and his new friends in the guild, Marius begins to heal. He’s also quickly falling for the alluring mage, but Ayodele struggles with what’s forming between them. Past experience left Ayodele flippant but guarded, and Marius’s open honesty unnerves him.

As they grow closer, Paladin Charm prepares for a battle with impossible odds. And in the darkness, the Queen of Shadows waits to reclaim Marius and drag him back into a nightmare.

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I loved this story about a man named Marius who is a Shadowmancer that escapes the shadow realm and meets Ayodele a mage who is the guild master of Paladin Charm. Ayodele believes Marius is the perfect fit for his small guild and recruits him despite everyone being afraid of Marius’ power.

Serpant Fang is a guild Ayodele used to belong to until they decided to take Ayodele’s home land. This is where he draws a line and forms Paladin Charm in the hopes of defending his home and surrounding city-state against Serpant Fang. It doesn’t hurt that he’s attracted to Maruis and the sparks fly.

The only three things I wanted to know more about were Marius himself and how he came to be a Shadowmancer since he was given his power by the queen of shadows and is human, how exactly the guild came up a way to get to shadow realm and what happened to Serpant Fangs leader at the end of the battle.

Other than those three things it was an exciting story with great characters, adventure and danger all rolled into in one great story.

Blurb: An omega who can’t speak meets an alpha who won’t listen….

Karter Jenks is a first-year constable who’s still trying to prove himself to his superiors, so he isn’t looking for a mate right now. Soon, sure, but he also knows he has work to do to change his alphahole tendencies around omega rights. The Kell Iverson trial opened his eyes to how cruelly some omegas are treated, and Karter doesn’t want to follow in his authoritarian father’s footsteps when he finds his mate. And he absolutely does not expect a homeless omega vagrant and burglary suspect to be his bondmate.

Jax Orris escaped a life of captivity and pain to save himself and his infant son. Living as vagrants isn’t ideal, but it’s better than trusting the authorities who landed Jax in hell to begin with. When their hiding place is discovered, Jax is shocked to feel the mating bond with the young alpha who’s been tracking him—and even more shocked when the constable doesn’t immediately arrest him for his crimes. It helps him trust Karter enough to accept his help in keeping himself and his son safe from the men Jax escaped.

Jax’s story horrifies Karter, and he vows to protect his omega from further harm—but first he has to get his stubborn, angry omega to trust him. Trust is no longer in Jax’s nature, but he can’t deny his connection to the young alpha eager to please him. Jax never thought he’d want another alpha to touch him, much less mate with him, but Karter’s gentle patience breaks down the walls Jax erected around his heart after the death of his first mate. As Jax’s next heat approaches, the investigation into his captivity uncovers surprising connections to several previous cases, and the danger to everyone involved increases. Can he trust Karter to protect him, or will Jax’s past destroy their chance for a happily ever after?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Jax is an omega who escapes the omega fight ring while pregnant. He is caught by Constable Jenks after he breaks into two houses for baby supplies. Jenks immediately takes the man and his child somewhere safe. Jax cannot speak due to the doctor who works for the fight ring cutting his vocal cords completely.

I loved that despite being young Karter protects Jax from all the evil that he has been through. With the help of friends he didn’t know he had the two manage to get closer to each other. The baby is adorable and Karter falls hard for the two of them.

There is danger all around as an investigation is under way to find the culprits. I loved how the omegas from previous books as well as omegas from different cases all rally together to fight for each other as well as their rights. Their support was rock solid and whole. The unwavering support of the alphas who believe in being good to omegas was awesome.

Great read.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This is the fourth installment of Silvia Violet’s Fitting In series. By now I’ve gone through a number of Silvia Violet books and in addition to loving the plot lines she creates, I also thoroughly enjoy her writing style. For me it is just so easy to zoom through just about every book that I’ve picked up. But back to the Fitting In series, we are back with our primary trio – Mason, Gray and Jack – after a departure from the guys in the previous book. The guys are in love and work so well together.

After book 2 being written from Jack’s POV, we are now back to having the story told from Gray’s POV. I must admit that Gray still annoys me at times, mostly because he seems to value his work above his personal life on a regular basis. But no one is perfect and something we are all guilty of, I think, in real life. The other thing to remember about Gray, which is why he is so good, is that he is a tough cop – a detective since his promotion in book 2 but it is nice to see that Mason and Jack are working their magic on the man and there are definite traces of a cuddly teddy bear. I wouldn’t say that Gray is the glue holding them together – I love how Silvia Violet has written it that each man has his own role in the relationship – but Gray is definitely a the dominate player in their trio. There is some light BDSM but nothing major beyond some bondage and spanking, although the guys talk about plans for a play room.

As for Mason and Jack, through Gray’s eyes it is clear that Jack and Mason a certain strength to the relationship that he cannot. This is especially true since it becomes increasingly clear that Gray is stressed from work and I definitely think that he needs the strength of both his men to help him through, even if Gray does not want to go on the holiday that Jack and Mason so desperately want.

My only criticisms are that the ending was a little abrupt, although I like to hope that there is more from the guys. It was danger, danger, danger… then bam! HEA! Not that I’m complaining, I think that it still worked really well. Part of me longs for a book written from Mason’s POV. Because that is something that I felt throughout all the previous books, part of me really wanted to hear from other characters in the ménage besides the man that is narrating (in Book 2 that was Jack and in book 3, with a different trio, it was Bryce).

All in all, though, this is a book I recommend without reservation, especially those that love to read a hot ménage relationship that works.

Back Streets

(Hot Wire 02)
by

Kat Cassidy

“Where there’s nothing to gain and everything to lose.”

It’s modest, but after a lifetime spent barely holding on, former car thief Peter Bauer is proud of what he’s managed to achieve. He’s got a legal, legitimate job as a mechanic, a firm grasp on his addictions, and a steady relationship with Nikos Petrakis—stable, handsome, and recently widowed. Nothing is going to upset that, not the ever-present memory of Nik’s wife, not the claustrophobia Peter is starting to feel trapped in domestic bliss, not even the sudden reappearance of Peter’s ex—the sexy and dangerous Stavros Giannopoulos.

But when Nik’s daughter goes missing, Peter will be forced back into the seedy underbelly of the LA crime world, where anything goes. Can his and Nik’s relationship survive? Can Peter?

Backstreets is the second book in Kat Cassidy’s Hot Wire series which contains themes of crime, suspense, family drama, hurt/comfort, dark humor, addiction, and abuse. It should not be read as a standalone.

They have eyes for each other. But someone is eyeing them for murder. An erotic gay romance mystery.

In the Junior students’ dormitory at Oakschott Hall, a heavy gaslight falls from the ceiling, crushing the head of a student sleeping beneath it. Was it simply a tragic accident? To avoid publicity, the Headmaster asks Colin Revell, a young Oxford University graduate and former Oakschott student, to quietly investigate.

While interviewing the faculty and staff, Colin meets Max Lambourne, a handsome don who was wounded and gassed in WWI. When Colin tries to help Max overcome his trauma and depression, the two men fall in love and begin an erotic affair.

But when another student dies—diving at night into an empty swimming pool—murder is suspected. Students and faculty all come under suspicion, and rumors proliferate when Scotland Yard intervenes. Meanwhile, during all this confusion and wild theories, the murderer sees Colin and Max as threats. Unbeknownst to the two lovers, their lives are now in danger.

Blurb: Bryce has been a firefighter for ten years, but when a horrific house fire leaves him reeling, he moves to a new city, hoping to shove those memories behind him. As he adjusts to his new station, Bryce keeps to himself until Matt and Toby, two hot young men in his unit, throw temptation in his path. Bryce knows better than to mess around with men he works with, especially two newbies who are in the closet. But after a difficult day, Matt and Toby offer him compassion and friendship, which slips so easily into sex Bryce finds the combination irresistible.

Matt and Toby want to expand their relationship to include a third, and they’ve set their sights on their sexy bear of a lieutenant. Their first night together is a scorcher, and, more than that, it feels right, to all of them. But since Bryce refuses to hide who he is, and dating men on his shift is against the rules, all three men are going to have to make some tough choices if they want to stay together.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I am seriously in love with the Fitting In series by Silvia Violet. Burning Up, however, is a bit of a departure from the previous two series which concentrated on three other men making their relationship work. For that reason this book works as a standalone if you want. Most importantly, though, you have three hot, gay fire fighters who seem to need little or no coercion to become a thruple.

The story follows established – and closeted couple – Matt and Toby, who are keen to add a third to their relationship. They need a dominant male, which means that there is some very light BDSM. That’s when we throw Bryce into the mix. He’s a bit older than Matt and Toby and has been a firefighter for ten years. After a horrific house-fire he picks up his life and ends up at the same station as Matt and Toby in an effort to get over the horrors in his life. However, Bryce also has a strict rule of not being in a relation with a co-worker and for damn good reasons.

This is hot and sexy. There are hot firefighters in dangerous situations and a good dose of sexual healing so that a trio of men who just fit together can get their HEA.

Blurb: Something is moving in the shadows of Hanover Hills.

Being the lead enforcer of a werewolf pack isn’t the easiest job in the world, but Deckard Warren doesn’t trust anyone else to do it. Most days he doesn’t trust anyone, period. He leads his unit of Ironheld Wolves–defending their territory and protecting their alpha–with vigilance and a wrath as unforgiving as he is. When a man who doesn’t know his own name is chased into wolf territory by a rival pack, Deckard discovers something he thought didn’t exist for him and that he knows he doesn’t deserve.

Colt is running, but from what? And to where? He doesn’t remember anything before the moment he crossed the border into Ironheld Wolf territory with only the clothes on his back. After he leaps straight into the arms of the gruffest, most intimidating man he thinks he’s ever met, the werewolf seems hell bent on helping Colt get his memories back if only so he can send him on his way. With no other options, Colt takes Deckard up on his offer of refuge and sets out to figure out what happened to him even as proximity to the werewolf threatens to have him losing more than the recollection of his past.

But when the shadows shift and enemies are brought to light, will Deckard and Colt find a way to stand together or watch as everything around them drowns in darkness?

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I really wanted to love this story of Deckard and Colt and who Colt turns out to be. But alas I was disappointed in the fact that it moved slowly for a good majority of the book as Colt and Deckard got used to each other. Colt has no idea who he is and so Deckard is gentle and understanding with him.

Colt is scared that he has no memory of who he is. The one constant in his life now is Deckard. A struggle for power in the pack comes to light and Deckard volunteers to be the alpha’s step in. When Deckard takes Colt to his alpha’s mom who is a witch, things start going fast and abrupt. The truth of who and what Colt is comes out and it’s a mind blower.

I wanted more in the way of the action scenes not a few sentences then bam it’s over. Not to mention the ending left a lot to be desired as it’s a cliffhanger. This book was not a balanced book.

It was an o.k. read for me

The Ghosts Between Us

(The West Hills 01)
by

Brigham Vaughn

Dr. Christopher Allen knows how to deal with death. He’s a psychiatrist who works with hospice patients and their families, helping them cope with grief and letting go. But Chris’s job doesn’t prepare him for the sudden death of his devil-may-care brother Cal.

At Cal’s funeral, Chris is completely thrown when he meets Elliot Rawlings, an artist Cal has been dating. Chris is hurt to discover that the brother he knew as straight was actually bisexual. Elliot is angry and resentful of having been kept hidden from Cal’s family.

After the funeral, a night of drinking at the bar with Cal’s friends leads to Chris and Elliot falling into bed together. The next morning, they’re overwhelmed by guilt and grief and agree to never speak of it again.

But Cal’s apartment needs to be packed up and Elliot reluctantly agrees to help Chris, as well as answer some questions about Cal’s life and their relationship. Despite their guilt and initial dislike for one another, they sort through the pieces of Cal’s life and begin to fall for each other.

Despite his best efforts to fix things, Chris’s family seems to be crumbling around him and he begins to question who he is and what his role with them is. As his feelings for Elliot grow, Chris must decide if they’re worth further damaging his fragile relationships with his friends and family.

Elliot’s rough upbringing has left him distrustful of getting close to anyone, much less another man who isn’t willing to acknowledge him in public. The odds seem stacked against Chris and Elliot, but if they can overcome them, they may be able to lay Cal’s ghost to rest, along with their own demons.

Bitten By Fate

(Regent’s Park Pack 06)
by

Annabelle Jacobs

Daryl plays with fire and gets burned by fate…

Former Primrose Pack member Jason Black happily accepted his role as beta in the new Regent’s Hill pack, knowing that merging the two was the best decision for everyone involved. Daryl Easton is loyal and honest but wary of change. The joining of the two packs wasn’t his preferred outcome, and he’s struggling to see all the newcomers as pack, including those now working alongside him.

When the alpha council proposes a two-week pack-building course to help improve troubled relationships, Jason and Daryl are sent along as backup. It soon becomes clear that the unit members and their betas won’t be the only ones taking part in tasks—Daryl and Jason will have challenges of their own to complete.

With the full moon adding to the rising tension, emotions are volatile, and tempers flare among the unit members. Jason and Daryl become closer than either of them expected, but with such opposing views on relationships, a messy outcome seems inevitable unless Daryl can let go of the past.

(Kings of Hell MC 05)
by

— The real demons live within —

Laurent. Time traveller. Devoted husband. Stubborn as the devil himself.
Beast. Kings of Hell MC president. Will stop at nothing to protect his family.

After everything Baal put them through, neither Laurent nor Beast considered ever making another pact with a demon, but in the spur of the moment, temptation becomes too great, and they decide on one more deal.

This time, with Mr. Magpie.

But the gift might prove to be more than they can handle. The danger to the human world has already strained their relationship, but Magpie’s offering brings out the worst in both Laurent and Beast. Confronted with each other’s flaws, they need to decide if, despite all they’ve been through together, perhaps they’re just not meant to be.

With the world on the brink of collapse, and their pact binding them in new and unexpected ways, they have to put their differences aside to stand a chance at saving their family.

Seen by A.M. Arthur

Title: Seen

Series: Breaking Free 02

Author: A.M. Arthur

Genre: Alternative Universe, Omegaverse

Length: Novel (308pgs)

Publisher: Briggs-King Books (September 26, 2017)

Heat Level: Low – Moderate

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

Blurb: Hell is a six-by-six jail cell and no hope for the future.

Kell Iverson has never raised his hand against another person in his entire life—and yet somehow he’s been arrested and charged with the murder of his alpha mate Krause. Sure, Krause brutalized him on a daily basis, and Kell hated his mate, but he never wanted the man dead. Not fighting the charge and accepting his fate is the easiest path—except Kell doesn’t think he’ll survive a week in prison, and he doesn’t want to disappoint his younger brother Braun by giving up. He also doesn’t expect to recognize the lawyer who shows up to defend him.

Ronin Cross was barely eighteen when he felt the mating bond with then-fourteen-year-old Kell, but his family moved away before Ronin could decide what to do. For the last ten years, he hasn’t forgotten teenage Kell, hasn’t mated, and now he’s in Sansbury Province to defend adult Kell from a capital murder charge. The mating bond is still there, but now isn’t the time to pursue anything with his fragile, battered, emotionally-damaged client.

For Kell, the term “kind alpha” is a contradiction, because he’s never known one. He went from abusive father to abusive mate, and for twenty-four years, he’s simply done what he’s told. But Ronin asks Kell what he wants. What he likes. Ronin sees him, and it’s both confusing and delightful. But Kell is facing prison time at best, execution at worst, and as his trial date looms, he can’t indulge in a fantasy that will never come true…or can he?

NOTE: This is a non-shifter Omegaverse story with alpha/omega/beta dynamics, heats, knotting, and mpreg. In this world, omegas are second-class citizens with few civil rights and almost no protections under the law. Trigger warnings for physical, emotional, and sexual abuse.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Kell is in jail awaiting trial for murder. His lawyer is a man from his childhood, Ronan cross. Ronan is protective of Kell given that he is Ronan’s mate. Years ago these two were separated when Ronan’s family moved away all of a sudden. Jumping at the chance to be around Kell again, Ronan springs into action doing what he does best.

The trial was heartbreaking and the details of the abuse Kell suffered by his husband horrific. Braun, Kell’s brother, is a rock for the young man in his time of need. As the trial drags on Ronan and Kell grow closer.

I loved these two as a couple. Kell, despite all he’s suffered is strong. Though it does take him time to come to grips with all he’s suffered throughout his life.

An emotional and amazing addition to the series as new evidence is brought to light as well as new leads to other cases.

Great read.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Lost Shifters collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Housecats are so shifty, sneaky and they don’t trust many. Which makes them a favorite of mine. Baily is one cutie in his cat form but he is also deadly in his own way. Which is a kick for him since he feels that many see him as weak. However he is a soldier for the Coalition and has found a home. When captured he escapes and seeks refuge in a bar full of shifters, but here is the problem. He can’t shift back to his human form.

Caden and his brother own a very nice bar that has quite a bit of sifters coming him but not many know they are shifters. When a stray finds his way in and seems to want to stay, well you can imagine Caden’s expression. Imagine his expression when he finds out that the cat he is starting to care for is actually a shifter.

There were some small problems that I found in the story, however it didn’t take the story away from me. It does need some good proofreading and editing, but I know which direction the story was going so I still had a blast reading it. Talk about snarky shifters, these guys have it in spades. Exciting and danger filled is just a bit of what I got in this book and so much more. I love this world and was quite surprised when this book came out. I had thought for sure that the series had stopped for awhile. I was glad that I was wrong.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to read the next book. I can guarantee that this will be one of those stories that will be read many times over.

Blurb: From animosity to searing passion in a lunar cycle… but can their bond survive? 

Wolf shifter Nathan Kohl’s pack is his whole life. Arrogant and handsome, he avoids commitment to anything or anyone outside of his pack. He works hard, plays hard, and pursues humans as lovers because there’s little to no chance of him forming a permanent bond. However, when Jared Taylor comes into Nathan’s life, every rule is broken.

After a bad experience, Jared vowed to never get involved with another shifter, no matter how much they got under his skin. Despite being physically attracted to Nathan, who’s all kinds of hot, Jared only sees an arrogant, domineering bastard.

A disastrous case of mistaken identity throws Nathan and Jared together until the next full moon. Forced to spend the next twenty-eight days in close proximity, they can no longer ignore the powerful attraction between them. Passion ignites, and their relationship takes a turn neither of them wanted. 

But when the full moon comes, everything might change again.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This author was new to me so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I really wasn’t sure when I saw the cover, talk about a bit creepy. The blurb made the story sound quite different, if not a bit dark. However I was pleasantly surprised to find out just how different this book is from many others. It is not the instant attraction, fall in love, and mating that one normally finds. They don’t scent each other as their mates; in fact I almost believe they have no clue about mates at all. 

This story caught my attention from the start, although I must admit that it had not kept my attention throughout though. As I said before it has this dark tone to it but not so much to distract me. I haven’t really been one for stories like this but I loved the way it just seemed to come together. The characters were delightful but different. I didn’t really connect with them like I should have, but it didn’t take away from the story itself.

Nathan is an arrogant shifter who never really wanted to bond with anyone. He was not really interested in dating either, sex was fine but something more was a definite no. He did however show some interest in the human at the club though. He just had not expected what to happen, to happen. On the night he came across Jared, he got turned down. Getting called away might have been the best, if it didn’t mean their shipment was attacked. 

Jared was as human as can be, and he had a definite hate towards shifters. After one disaster of a relationship, he really did not want anything to do with them. That ended the night Nathan bit him. There was a law, to bite a human meant major punishment, banishment or even death. He didn’t want that on his head, but it would mean close contact for a short period of time. Passion, fire and attraction ignites during their time together. 

I loved the way they interacted with each other, and how their bond strengthened. I liked how Nathan was with Jared; even throughout his attitude Nathan was still pretty sweet to him. I also loved how Jared would react when Nathan had to go somewhere without him. Although there were some parts that were a bit off, as with the fact that a human could not be in the packs home, yet later on it was ok. It just seemed strange to change it. These two have loads of sexual tension flowing around, and when they are together damn can it get hot.

This story just seemed to rock for me. I was surprised to find out that this was not a series because I can see a few characters that just might be perfect for the next story.

I had a lot of fun reading this and cannot wait to see what other stories this author has out.
