Blurb: Having grown up in pack that frowned on gay relationships, Blaine makes a deal with himself: one night and one night only. If he finds a man he’s interested in, he’ll sleep with him. That should have been the end of it, except the man he met was Phoenix, and all Blaine’s carefully constructed plans went out the window.

Blaine can’t stop thinking about Phoenix. Despite everything, he wants to see Phoenix again. What he doesn’t want is for his life to get so complicated. Phoenix becomes his only way out.

Face to face with Phoenix, and trapped in a dangerous situation, Blaine makes the only decision he can: he has to trust Phoenix to back him up. But the attraction between them is as strong as it was during their first explosive encounter, and Blaine finds himself unwilling to resist.

But why should he? It’s Phoenix.

Review: Blaine lives in a pack that is pretty much homophobic and never tried to stray away from it.  That is until he made himself a deal, one night with a man and only that night.  He just hadn’t expected that night to be with an alpha werewolf.  Especially when he is about to become his alpha.

I have read a few stories by this author and have found that she seems to follow the same pattern in her writing.  Although the characters are full of energy and are sexy as hell, they are still missing something important to make them stand out to me.  The story itself flows at a steady pace but the characters do get a little bit confusing.  To me Phoenix doesn’t act like an alpha, whereas Blaine does.  Blaine is the pack’s beta but has a stronger feeling to him then Phoenix does.  Also it leads you into the other pack mates, but doesn’t finish with where they are heading or how they are acting.  Such as Blaine’s pack mates acting human even though they are not.  It just felt off to me.

Other than my issues with this book, it is still a pretty good read.  I wouldn’t say I would read it more than once but still was a nice little story.  This particular story is a single story, but I would think with the way it is told and the missing pieces that it could be made into a series.  I would hope at least that this author would make a second book, because right now there are question’s left unanswered.  Guess time will tell.

Blurb: Marshal is in a middle of a mission, which if it goes wrong threatens to dissolve into bloody war. He’s always prided himself on doing a good job, but this time he failed. His pack was hurt and he has to remedy the situation.

Finding his mate wasn’t in the plan. To get to the man who started everything, Marshal has to use and hurt Nick. Nick has his own duties to fulfill. Neither of them is able to back off and both of them are afraid they will lose the mate bond, something every shifter holds precious. Torn between duty and desire, Marshal doesn’t know how to act. The bond between him and Nick is tenuous and threatened by events, which are out of their control.

Once the dust settles, Marshal finds himself stuck between a rock and hard place, because no matter what decision he makes, he will lose something.

Review: I have always been more compelled to read a good paranormal romance. One knows that none of it is possible, but the way any are written, you feel like they are. You wish you were right there with them, fighting with them, loving with them and hoping with them. The only one that can make it comes across so defined and worthy of being read more than once is the author. To write with all of their feelings put in to it, makes the story more juicy and enjoyable. Sunny has done this with most of her writings.

Marshall is the pack enforcer and knows what needs to be done when a pack mate is injured and another kidnapped by another pack. He knows that Kyle is the next intended alpha for his pack, but that there is also another who could do it. He must go and talk to Nick about taking the job and catching Kyle. The problem he finds is that Nick and Kyle are brothers. It will take a strong man to turn over his own brother for a death sentence. Marshall also finds out, after he broke in to Nicks home is that Nick is his mate.

Nick is having a hard time all around. He knows that Marshall is his mate, that Kyle needs to pay for his crimes and that he needs to tell his father that he is going to take the alpha position even if it means fighting. However even though he is an alpha and strong, he seems that he is also scared of it all. He wants his mate, is drawn to him, and wants to be with him, but there is something in him that slows him down with the choice.

He also knows that he will make a good alpha, but going to his father is something else. He needs to man up and take control of it all.

This is a damn good book and gave me everything I could want in a story. I had a blast reading it and would recommend it to everyone. I mean what is better than two gorgeous men, shape shifters, power struggles, insane relatives, danger, excitement, lots of action and some very hot sex. It gave me a world to lose myself into. I loved it and sure hope that this might turn into a series.
