Review: Each book in the Wyoming Shifters: 12 Years Later collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This story is actually branched off from different series. I would suggest reading Whitedell Pride, Gillham Pack and Council Enforcer’s first. It gives you back ground into some of the characters you will come across. Not to mention on who Sterling and Adam are and their fathers.

Sterling has met his mate but wants to take time before bonding. Then tragedy strikes and his idea of freedom is but a glimmer in the sun. Sterling’s parents were killed in a car accident and it left him alone to raise twin six year olds and a grouchy teenager, or so he thought. He has the help of not only his pack, but his mate’s pride and his mates family. Not to mention the fact that he has his mate to help.

Adam is younger than his mate by two years, but he knows that he will help his mate with anything. He had not expected to become a family right off the bat, let alone help raise three kids. However he knows that his family will help them all the way. Now he just has to show Sterling that he means it.

As usual Catherine has given us an amazing story with quite a bit of action, suspense, tender moments and some sexy times. It gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more. My attention as usual had been caught from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

I would definitely recommend it and in fact the whole series.

Blurb: Brandon has all the problems eighteen-year-old guys have—an overbearing mother, a little brother he could do without, and two slightly pushy best friends. When he goes dancing one night, he doesn’t expect to find himself with more problems—and a mate.

Maddox is a loner, and he likes it. He trusts his numerous pets more than most humans, but some people don’t allow him to push them away, like Asher, his coworker and best friend. Asher is the only reason Maddox finds himself dragged to the club even though he hates crowds and dancing. And when he steps into the bathroom and realizes something is happening in one of the stalls, the evening takes a turn for the worse. Someone drugged his mate and assaulted him.

Brandon knows he was lucky Maddox stepped in when he did, but when the man who drugged him escapes before being taken to the council jail, he expects things to go south. He’s not sure why Maddox offers him to stay at his house, since he clearly loves living alone, but he’s not about to say no to the possibility of getting to know his mate better, even though Maddox keeps him at arm’s length.

But the man who drugged Brandon is on the run, and he’s coming for Brandon. Will Maddox be able to keep his mate safe—even from himself? Or will he break Brandon’s heart before losing him?

Review: Each book in the Wyoming Shifters: 12 Years Later collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is branched off from Whitedell Pride, Gillham Pack, and Council Enforcers. For the full impact I would start with book one in the Whitedell Pride series.

Brandon has a very over protective mother who pretty much acts like a crazy nancy around him. When he is drugged and attacked he is rescued by his mate, but his mother needs a Valium. When the man escapes from transport, Brandon must go into hiding. Guess who he gets to hide out with.

Maddox was fifteen when his parents kicked him out for being gay and it seemed to just stick with him. He trusted no one to stick around so other than a couple of friends, well lets just say he has some fuzzy babies that are adorable. When he comes across his mate getting attacked he does what any mate will do, but he just has no clue what else to do about it.

I will admit that I am not really a big fan of this particular series but only because it comes off more like a youth book than the other three series. The characters seem more weak and needy than their parents. Which would make sense if it was for the youth readers. There is a mention of sex but you don’t really get any sexy times in the story. However other than my issues with it, this one had action, danger, a twist that you wouldn’t expect and some really cute cuddles. It is perfect for when you are just needing a good book to read. I actually think I liked Brandon more than Maddox though. However his love of animals is a big hit for Maddox. Always loved a man with an animal.

I enjoyed it quite a bit and can’t wait to see what the next book has in it. It is one of those series that will be read many times over.

Review: Each book in the Wyoming Shifters: 12 Years Later collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This is branched off of the Whitedell Pride and Gillham Pack collections.

Luke was one of the three kids found and rescued several years ago in a lab. They were not born but created. They had the same gifts as many of the paranormal’s but could not shift into an animal. He knew they could get mates, but for some reason he believed he wouldn’t get one. After a wicked night at the club where a guy OD’d, he found his mate. A mate that he ran from.

Felix has lived as a human since birth, but he was in fact half human and half demon. His mother had been full demon but the moment she married his human father, the other demons had cast her out of their realm. For some reason she wanted him to mate a full blood demon thinking it would get them back home. However he had met his mate or at least he was told he did. Demon’s didn’t have mates, so it was a nice surprise to find out that he was a shifters mate.

Then there was a drug out there that worked on shifters but also either killed them or turned them into rabid animal’s. Of course even after it turned them rabid, they still died. Now they needed to figure out what was going on. As alway Catherine has given me an amazing read. Excitement, action packed, danger filled and let’s not forget those sexy times are just a bit of what you get in this story.

Now for the downside, it just ends. It didn’t even give me any warning but just ended. It was a bit disappointing and a letdown. However that won’t stop me from reading it over and over. I can’t wait till I get my hands on the next book.

Review: Each book in the Wyoming Shifters: 12 Years Later collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is connected to the Whitedell Pride and Gillham Pack series.

That is one of the best things about this author, the characters are so different from one another. You not only get your wolves and felines, but so many other types as well. I came across Catherine’s books when she wrote her first book for Whitedell Pride series. I fell in love with the characters right from the start. And now we get the children’s love story twelve years in the future. They have grown up and boy can you see it. Asher knew his best friend Terry was his mate when they were still kids. Fear of loosing him, he never said a word. Then when he lost his mother, and Terry started dating girls, well he just kept his mouth shut. Secrets never stay secret for to long though.

Terry has broken up with his girl friend and needs to go home to unwind. When he was a kid, he hated the life they were living. His mother was gone, and his human father was a shifters mate. Not only a shifter but a man at that. Boy did he give them hell. Time changes things slowly though. His best friend was a wolf shifter and he loved him. So Terry was keeping secrets as well. These two just need to figure it out, and boy do they ever.

A little bit of danger added in and this story just rocked perfectly. I loved the excitement, danger, lust and story line. It is going to make a great start to a new series and I can not wait to get my hands on the next story. I do love when an author gives us a look into the future with the kids. Gives a new start to life better I would say. I had a lot of fun with this and would definitely recommend it.
