Yulian Volkov is an entrepreneur and lone werewolf who hates the city. At a pack meeting, he learns the only member he’s attracted to is being expelled for crimes unspecified. Yulian strikes a deal with the pack leader to allow Rolly Witten to live on his farm and work in his Meadery. Although enjoying handsome Rolly’s company, Yulian must tread carefully, since Rolly doesn’t trust him and the pack doesn’t acknowledge homosexuality exists. Meanwhile, Yulian stealthily courts Rolly by teaching him the value of his wolf side.
Rolly, who’s known he was gay since he was a teen, has accepted a life of solitude-and a life of crime. He has no desire to relocate. Yet Yulian’s trust in his ability to do honest work builds his confidence. As life is settling well for them, Rolly learns a friend from his old pack had a crush on him, and he’s torn between returning his friend’s feelings or pursuing the budding relationship with Yulian. But that’s not their worst problem. Assassins are trying to take out both wolves, and they need to figure out who wants them dead or all the trust and happiness they’re building together won’t matter.
So I will start of this review by saying while I really liked this book there were a few parts that did bug me and I was not such a huge fan of..
First was I really was not a fan of Ava or her POV which you do get a lot of in this book. To be honest I did not understand why we need her POV and I was not fan of her to start of she just came across so spoiled and like she did whatever she wanted while dragging Rolly along with her. Now what happens with Rolly’s brother and how it was her fault plus the way Rolly just forgives her like it was nothing that part seriously irritated me.
So another part I have to be honest about not being a huge fan of was Rolly’s all I want him but I don’t want him but I want him. This went on through most of the book and it was just so annoying after awhile I almost stopped reading to be honest.
The parts I did like was the shifter aspect and I really liked Yulian’s character I thought he was sweet and caring with Rolly even though Rolly played so many games with him that I would not have blamed him if he ran. Also I did like were the author was going with this story unfortunately the way some of these characters acted really brought this book down for me. So I am sad to say this book was just not for me. By the end of this book I ended up being so annoyed with everything Rolly and Ava had done.
So I will leave this review with I am sad to say this book was just not for me..
