Blurb: King Dante places Shelby in the protective custody of the Angel Pack to guard the secret of who he truly is and what he is capable of. Shelby has known who his mate is since before he was kidnapped by his psycho father six months ago. But now he fears that being in the same house as his mate will finally show Xander who he is. He has been hiding from his mate, but now that they are face-to-face Shelby needs to stay strong and reject Xander. He can’t afford to get attached to anyone and have them turn on him when they find out the truth.

But Xander won’t give up on his mate and does everything he can to show the gorgeous man that he wants him for who he is and will never try to control him or tell him what to do. The battle to save their world explodes at the same time the battle to save his mating puts Shelby in danger.


Review: Okay, this was a tough one for me to review because there was so much that I loved, yet the main couple were not that interesting to me. First off, this series is amazing and it’s an addictive joy of mine, so much so that I find myself looking forward to next book because I need my Angel Pack fix. I love the dynamics of this paranormal world: the war, the many facets of each shifter, vampire, fae, and the underworld. I especially loved the birth of King Dante’s twins, and I was hoping for Noah to go into labor and deliver, too, but I think that will happen in the next installment. This is a series built on family. Not a blood family, but a group of mixed paranormals who have joined and built a life together.

Xander is a wolf shifter who has been in many a book so his history is well documented, but Shelby, his vampire (with special powers) mate is kind of new. So much so that I kind of forgot who he was, and had to backtrack a little bit. I’m not sure why these two didn’t light up my Nook, but there was so much more going on that I was okay with it and it really didn’t take anything away from my enjoyment.

Now, I am hoping for the next book because I need to see where things are going, and I am also foaming at the mouth for the next Beyond the Angel Pack book, too. So, if you’ve been a loyal reader to this series, then I am pretty confident that you will love all the action that takes place in this book, too.

Overall Impression: I really liked it

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