Blurb: It’s funny how one small circumstance of being in the wrong place at the wrong time can fuck up the life you had.
Odin James’s world changed forever when he witnessed his best friend being murdered. The people he thought were meant to protect him may just be working for the man who wants him dead. Trust doesn’t come easy–throw a mate into the mix and everything suddenly slides out of control.
Tom Wylie is the beta of his pack. When his alpha requests he take a police witness and keep him safe, Tom doesn’t know what he’s getting into. One sniff of the man, and he knows Odin is his mate. Protecting Odin from the bad shit after him is a given.
Life gets complicated when they realise things aren’t what they seem. Odin isn’t as human as he believed, and his birthright wants him dead. With the help of Tom’s pack, will Odin and Tom beat the odds thrown at them, and come out on top, or will evil win?

Review: Odin James witnesses the murder of his best friend. As a result the man who committed the murder wants him dead before he can testify or so Odin thinks. The FBI find out there’s a leak in the department and that Odin’s whereabouts have been compromised. In order to better protect him Patric enlists the help of Tom.
Tom is a beta wolf in Patric’s pack. He knows Odin is his mate the moment he sees him. What I liked about this story was Odin had no idea of who or what he is or why his uncle is really after him. Along with another group who desperately want to rid the earth of all supernaturals Odin and Tom find themselves in a fight for their lives.
I really liked this book however I felt that the good guys were too tame. I mean they are fighting to live yet when people attacked them or took them hostage they’re reactions didn’t meet the situation in my opinion. Other than that it was a great read.
I hope to read more in this series.
