Blurb: Time is ticking. The Change is coming. Leo Brooks thought there was a medical procedure to stop him from permanently turning into his wolf form. But he was wrong. Unless he finds a way to stop it, other than mating with a compatible shifter or having his human life mate, Paolo, ingest an experimental potion that can kill him, Leo will be damned forever.
Paolo Russo’s life mate, Leo, is sick and constantly haunted by nightmares. Yet when Paolo asks him what is wrong, Leo refuses to tell him the truth. Wanting to help his true love anyway he can, Paolo does a little sleuthing behind Leo’s back and finds out Leo is going through the Change. He can save him, but to do that he has to either risk his own life or their love.
Will Paolo’s sacrifice and his love for Leo be enough to save them from the wolf and from death?

Review: This is book four of the Shifters of the Claiming Kind series and they need to be read in order. It will help you know who each character is and what they are about. It also helps to give you an insight into their lives and troubles. It is a pretty amazing series and those cowboys are downright sexy. This is a paranormal shifter story, but they don’t just know at once that the person they are looking at is their mate. The wolves also go through something called the change and it can cost them their human sides.
When it was completely dark, the Change would come over the shifter at the age of around twenty-five or twenty-six. The shifter would have to mate with another compatible shifter to stop the Change. Otherwise, Leo would permanently transform into their animal forms, losing their human selves forever. Leo was hiding the fact that he was going to go through this.
His mate, Paolo was human so his blood could not stop it. He knew it was wrong to hide it, but he didn’t want his mate scared. He had checked into the other ideas, but one of them could actually kill his mate. He would just love his mate until it happened.
Paolo knew something was up with Leo. Leo was having nightmares, sleeping very little and not eating like he should. He searched for the truth, but when he came across what was happening he knew he would have to do something to save his mate. Even if it meant he was going to die. He would do what needed to be done.
I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. It gave me everything I could want in a story. The perfect amount of danger and excitement, passion and fire, anger and pain is just parts of what I got from this book.
I would definitely recommend reading this book. Especially if you love gorgeous men, sexy shifters, mates who are in trouble, hot sex and dangerous men. I loved it and look forward to the next book.
