Scott Peterson, beta wolf in the Cloverleah Pack, has a good life. He loves his cars, riding his Harley, and going out with pack members and friends. But when an attack on his pack by a bear shifter, brings his mate into his world, from Texas of all places, Scott realizes he could lose everything he ever held dear.
Damien, Alpha wolf of the San Antonio Pack, didn’t want to go to Cloverleah and definitely didn’t want to be chasing a rogue bear shifter that was threatening the Alpha of the Cloverleah Pack. But he was in for a pleasant surprise when he finds his mate. Now, if he could just find the time to enjoy him.
Between murderous bears, deceptive wolves, two packs and a BDSM club, the road to HEA is anything but smooth for Scott and Damien. And then there’s a fire, and an Alpha Challenge, and let’s not forget Diablo and Griff’s wedding. About the only thing Scott and Damien haven’t got is time to be together, and it is that lack of time that could pull them apart.
Warning. This book is about gay wolf shifters. It contains m/m anal and oral sex, rimming and a spanking scene. There is also some violence, fighting wolves and a couple of deaths of minor characters. Child Sexual Abuse is also referred to. Please do not buy this book if these aspects offend you in any way.
Damien is the Alpha of the San Antonio pack that is friends with the Cloverleah pack. Damien thought at one point that even though Shawn was not his true mate that he loved him. Turns out that it was not reciprocated but they remained friends. When trouble heads towards the Cloverleah pack, Damien and some of his enforcers are there to back them up.
Once there Damien finds his missing link on the form of Scott. To say Scott is not thrilled about his true mate is an understatement. Damien is the opposite of what Scott pictured. Damien is a leader that keeps his emotions locked away. He does not believe that he is capable of loving anyone and does not believe that he can truly give Scott what he wants.
Regardless they try to make it work between them and then is when the true trouble comes calling. Damien may realize to late his feelings for Scott.
This book has many things about it that broke my heart but it was such a great read. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series to see what happens with Scott’s twin brother and what awaits him and his true mate because I am positive that Lisa Oliver has an incredible book for him.
