Blurb: Two lovers from rival packs. Have they come together only to be forced apart?
Alec Knight, a beta in the Regent’s Park pack, guards his heart carefully. Ghosts from his past keep him alone and angry, any hope of a relationship impossible while guilt from the pack wars still haunts him. With the anniversary drawing near, Alec needs a distraction.
As a lowly member of the Primrose Hill pack, Mark Appleton isn’t used to having his alpha’s attention. Lately he’s had more than his fair share, and not for the right reasons. Despite growing suspicions that all is not well, Mark tries hard to do better, but constant criticism leaves him desperate for a stress outlet.
Sex is a good way for shifters to let off steam, and while their packs attack each other with accusations and lies, Alec and Mark work out their frustrations in bed. Pillow talk and shared secrets lead to a closeness neither was expecting, but when pack relations reach an all-time low, any future for them seems out of the question.
If they want to be together, they’ll have to go against their alphas’ wishes—except Alec won’t and Mark can’t.
I think this may have been my favorite book in the series, so far. Mainly because we now know so much about many of the wolves in the Regent’s pack and there was some resolution that I was hoping to see, not involving our protagonists. I have had a soft spot for Beta Alec from book one, and I knew he and Nathan had a history that needed to be put to bed. I was so thrilled that they finally got past their tragic past and were able to move on. But, besides that, this book is about Alec, and his love interest, Mark from the rival P-Pack.
Mark is in the unfortunate position of being in a pack with an unethical alpha, one who puts his own selfish needs ahead of his pack. Mark is silently considered acceptable collateral damage, so his fraternizing with a beta, from the rival pack, just takes a volatile situation and escalates it. There is a lot of pack drama in this book, but the sexy times between Mark and Alec is off the charts. I loved Alec, but Mark was seriously a kinky dude in his own right.
So easy to recommend this book, and this series, and I look forward to seeing where we go next.
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
