Blurb: Mick is a lone wolf in all ways. He’s left his pack, he’s left his homelands and he’s on the road, footloose and fancy free. Well, at least until he wanders up to a fence and finds a little wolf running his ass off behind it. Mick stops to let the pup out and is stunned to hear the young wolf, Scotty, tell him “no”. Scotty’s mate and best friend, Danny, asked Scotty to stay behind the fence, so he will be safe while Danny fights to support them both. All this leaves Mick’s fur standing on end. Maybe, Mick doesn’t need one mate to bring him home. Maybe, he needs two.
Review: Boy, was I excited for this one. Lone alpha wolf meets lone beta wolves and makes them his own pack. Sounds great! And it starts out pretty good! But things get sweet pretty quickly. I ended up having to struggle through this and force myself to not skim.
Things get repetitive mainly with sayings being repeated. Mick constantly reminds us he now has a pack, how unique each guy is and how much he loves them. It was a struggle at times, but I pushed on. There is a lot of sex, as in most of the story is sex. There isn’t really too much happening other than that, with the exception of Danny’s wolf issues. After taking on the responsibility of caring for Scotty, being forced to work regular job hours to put food on the table and pay rent, he has suppressed his wolf and is now unable to shift.
These three never really have any issues with jealousy, though there is a point where Danny believes Mick and Scotty don’t need him, but this has more to do with his inability to shift or provide for Scotty than it does over jealousy. These guys are so full of love for each other, jealousy never even enters the equation. Some of the sex is hot stuff, ok, most of it, I admit. But there is just so much of it that it gets a bit tiresome.
One other issue I had was the choppy dialog. I was often reminded of Sean Michael’s stories in this respect, as it had much the same feel. I found it interesting to learn from the About Author section that Ms. Tortuga is best friends with Sean Michael. Back to the book though, if you’re looking for a super sweet wolfie tale with a lot of playful puppy loving, cuddling and smexing, give this a try, as this may well be a case of it’s not you, it’s me.
Overall Impression: It was good
