Blurb: It’s been two years since Eric’s lover disappeared without a trace. He’s finally managed to move on, mostly by burying himself in work. That is, hunting down rogue werewolves. But he never did figure out how to forget the first and only love of his life. And he’s never stopped feeling guilty for what he believes was his part in Jackson’s death.
Only Jackson isn’t dead.
When Eric’s latest hunting assignment brings him to his old hometown, the place where he first fell in love with Jackson, he finds his high school sweetheart waiting for him, with one big problem: Jackson is a werewolf.
Torn between duty and love, Eric has one night to decide if he can stand to lose his lover again… by firing a silver bullet into his heart.

Review: This is the first time I have read a book by this author and I can honestly say that L.F. Blake has a wicked gift. This story is very intense with a lot of darkness to it, which for me was not my type of story at all. I was hoping for a lost love story with a bit of twist.
However this one was just a bit off.
Eric had been in love with Jackson, but not as much as Jackson was with Eric. Eric was a werewolf hunter and had hidden it. After Jackson’s disappearance and what he thought was death, he was in shock to find Jackson was definitely alive. The murders happening to some evil people leaves him to believe werewolf was involved. The biggest problem was Jackson was back as a werewolf.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from it, but was glad for the ending in a way. I can’t say I didn’t like it because I did, but it was definitely not my cup of tea. However it caught my attention and now I have got to see what other books this author has out. I just hope for a bit of a story with a lighter tone to it.
Portia’s Two Cents: I Love surprises.
I bought this as a Kindle Freebie. I’ve had mixed results with those things. Most are absolutely dreadful, but every now and then, I come across and author that I am thrilled to discover.
L.F. Blake is in that category.
The Hunting is deliciously dark. Eric comes across as a bit lost. He’s good at this job, as a Hunter, but I got the impression, he wasn’t happy. There are just too many unanswered questions surrounding his lover’s disappearance.
Speaking of said lover, Jackson is too hot. But his reappearance raises a host of ethical dilemmas for poor Eric.
My only complaint is that The Hunting wasn’t longer. I would have loved to entered the story sooner and lingered longer. Hopefully, L.F. Blake will return to this alternative reality and finished Eric and Jackson’s story.
A must read if you like good guys who do bad things, and werewolves that don’t play nice.
