Blurb: To bond with his destined mate, an Alpha wolf must look past what he sees and trust what he feels.

Bonded by their parents before they were conceived, wolf shifters Abel and Kai adored each other since they were children. As teens, the two future Alphas took the next step in their bonding process and vowed to remain true to one another until Kai came of age. But when tragedy struck, Abel felt betrayed and ran from Kai instead of completing their mating.

Abel never stops yearning for the man who was supposed to lead by his side and after years without contact, Kai returns, broken and on death’s door. If Abel wants to fulfill their destiny and merge their packs, he’ll need to look past what he saw and trust his heart.


Review: Wow, this little short story was quite the heartbreaker. I love paranormal romances and am quite comfortable with the bonded soul mates and the “mine-mine-mine” that comes with the territory. What I wasn’t expecting was the reason why the relationship between Abel and Kai fell apart before they were ever able to finish the bonding process that would tie them together forever.

This story started out very cute and you feel the love and excitement that Abel had for Kai….but your heart also broke when you witness the betrayal with him. I was expecting something along those lines but I was not expecting THAT! That was kind of harsh and it would require a miracle to overcome that level of perceived indiscretion. But all is not as it seems, and unfortunately it is much worse, and it take a very long time for the truth to be revealed.

My heart was so heavy with sadness for both Abel and Kai, but when the truth was revealed, and the “situation” handled, then everything was all beautiful again and life was as it should have been from the beginning.

So yeah, it’s an emotionally packed short story, one with a plethora of feelings both good and evil, love and hate, misunderstandings and clarity. It was a tough, hard fought journey, but at the end, it was all worth it.

Overall Impression: I really liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
