A dangerous lone wolf is intent on destroying the beginnings of a pack and when Connor is attacked and near death there is only one thing that can save him. A wolf shifter’s bite.
Review: This was a fast and easy read with a new twist on wolf shifters. Was not expecting a lot of what happened and it made the experience that much more enjoyable. One of my all time favorites is established couples. I love getting to watch them work through adversity after the honeymoon phase. That is the case here with Josh and Connor having been together for five years, and deciding to leave the big city for rural America.
Josh and Connor are city boys who have had it rough and had enough. Connor is attacked and that was the last straw, these boys needed a new beginning in a new town. They just didn’t expect to find more violence, unexplained and covered up disappearances and murders, and they most definitely didn’t expect to land in the middle of a wolf shifter pack.
It sounds like this is a scary, overly violent book, but it’s really not. You get lots of clues that something else is going on in the background, and when Connor is attacked again, the truth is revealed. You gotta feel bad for Josh. He tries so hard to make a normal life for him and his husband, but he just can’t seem to catch a break. And now, Connor is acting all strange. And the relationship is being threatened. It takes a village…or maybe a pack… and the love he feels for Connor to convince Josh that their love it worth everything coming their way.
I really liked Tiber, and though his book is not next, I will eventually work my way to that big badass wolf shifter. Love the beginning of this new shifter series, and though it’s not as long as I would like, it is still a very enjoyable read and I recommend you give it a try.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
