Jason’s scared out of his mind when he’s met by not only Brian but two large men as well, and he does the only thing he can think to do. He tries to run. One of the men, though, turns out to be his mate. A mate he is in no condition to have or want, a mate that won’t allow him to flee.
Alex Holland is forced to stand by and watch as Jason is taken to the safest place they know, too scared to be around him. He knows something bad has happened to Jason and he’s going to need every ounce of his Alpha control to give his mate the time he needs to heal and start living again.

Review: Once again, Toni Griffin rocks my world. This series should be read in sequence, it’s just better that way.
This story about broke my heart with Jason’s story. He is so gentle, kind and a heart made of gold, and he just grabs your heartstrings. You can’t help but fall in love with him. And his mate Alex feels the same way. Alex is the alpha of his pack and treats his mate as if he is the most special person in his life, which of course he is as he should be. You can’t help but fall in love with him and the way he is so tender with Jason.
At first when I heard Dominic start speaking I wasn’t for sure if I was going to like it. Then I remembered that this story takes place somewhere else so his accent made sense. I enjoyed the different voices he gave each character and even made mom sound like a mom. I had fun listening to his voice for each one and just wished I could have listened to him for a bit longer.
This audio book is so full of love, pain, and sadness, but the love will win all the way around. The sex is so passionate and truly hot. Even with the danger out there waiting for Jason, you can tell the Alex will protect him with his life. It will keep you spellbound and on the edge of your seat.
I am so glad to have found this series as it shows me that true love will heal all wounds. I am very glad to have this book in my library and cannot wait to add the others to it.
