Six months later, Walsh comes back. Not only has he cleaned up his act, but also he has cleaned up his looks. Tate can’t help but be drawn to this new version of Walsh. But he also can’t help but worry that it’s too soon for Walsh to start a new relationship. Will Tate and Walsh find a way to be together? Or are they doomed to forever be apart?

Review: This is book eleven in this series and they need to be read in order. It not only lets you know who everyone is but an awesome series all the way around. I love the way the characters come together.

Walsh was a ferret shifter and a drug addict. He was slowly dying from the drug tar. He used to keep the pain away, not only the physical pain but also the memories of his past. He had been kicked out by his grandfather when he had found out that his grandson was gay. Taken in by Zaid he had gotten mixed up with the wrong group and gotten addicted. It had gotten to the point that Zaid and Tate had tracked him down and put him in a rehab center for shifters with addictions.

Six months later Walsh was back with the pack. When he comes across Tate again, he has found another reason to stay safe. The other was he wanted to fight for his pack to keep everyone alive. He took a true look at Tate and saw something in him that made him want to believe again and to keep his word of not relapsing. It is a hard road to follow but Tate knew Walsh could do it.

Tate knew the second time he saw Walsh that he wanted this man for his mate. He believed in him and would stand by him no matter what. When they had went and talked to their alpha, Chris had agreed to let Walsh become a soldier. It took a few days but Walsh proved to be an ace. He turned out to be one of the best warriors they had. That surprised Walsh but not as much as the fact that this very sexy man wanted him as a mate.

Stephani always gives me a great story to lose myself into. I was not disappointed in this book. It is the perfect length also. I loved the fact that two sexy men fall in love, and despite their troubles, they seem to overcome all odds. It has the right amount of love, danger, and excitement. It catches your attention from the start and will keep it all the way to the end. I love the paranormal world but when you add in romance, I am a sure sell. I loved this book and cannot wait to read the next book in this amazing series.
