Blurb: Daryl plays with fire and gets burned by fate… 

Former Primrose Pack member Jason Black happily accepted his role as beta in the new Regent’s Hill pack, knowing that merging the two was the best decision for everyone involved. Daryl Easton is loyal and honest but wary of change. The joining of the two packs wasn’t his preferred outcome, and he’s struggling to see all the newcomers as pack, including those now working alongside him.

When the alpha council proposes a two-week pack-building course to help improve troubled relationships, Jason and Daryl are sent along as backup. It soon becomes clear that the unit members and their betas won’t be the only ones taking part in tasks—Daryl and Jason will have challenges of their own to complete.

With the full moon adding to the rising tension, emotions are volatile, and tempers flare among the unit members. Jason and Daryl become closer than either of them expected, but with such opposing views on relationships, a messy outcome seems inevitable unless Daryl can let go of the past.

Review: 

The sixth and final installment in this series finds the Primrose and Regent’s Park packs forced to integrate and learn to trust each other by going on a sort of teaming building trip together. It is during this excursion that betas, Jason, former Primrose pack, and Daryl, wary but loyal Regent’s pack member, find themselves also in forced unifying situations. For one, they have to oversee but not interfere (unless extreme circumstances present) while the wolves learn to work together and trust each other. Secondly, the two of them are forced to do the same, including sharing a room. This is all fine and good until those close confines start to work on their libidos.
Jason and Daryl already liked and respected the other. Now, they just have to tiptoe around the fact that they are attracted to each other and try not to activate a mating bond. Jason would love that and really would love for it to happen, however Daryl is dead-set against it…for reasons. I knew those reasons would be a bit unrealistic, and they were, but no one can ever say for certain how a child will perceive the actions of their parents and the effect it will have on their adult life. So, Daryl gets a pass, the big dummy.
Since this is a romance, you know the mating bond is going to activate. The story then becomes how do they handle it, how will Jason handle the rejection he knows is coming, and how will Daryl get over the past and move on with his fated one? Let me preface it by saying that it was a bit painful for both of them, and though I felt really bad for Jason, I also understood that Daryl needed to work this out or he would forever question his relationship with Jason. I believe it was handled in the best way possible, and the ending of this series left me content. I recommend this book and the entire series.

Overall Impression: I Really Liked It

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