Book three in the Coyote’s Call series

Love can conquer all, if he’ll only believe…

Roman Jonas has spent years recovering from a violent assault when he was just a teenager. He’s worked hard, and finally found his place in the world. Now, if he could only get his coyote to agree. As a medicine man for his pack, he isn’t able to shift. It’s frustrating to say the least, but not as frustrating—or confusing—as the feelings he has for former Ranger Abraham Evans.

Abraham lost the ability to do his job effectively when he was shot. His right arm and hand are close to useless, and he’s had a hell of a time not dying over the past month. Sometimes it seemed like it’d be so much easier to just give up, but a certain hazel-eyed man had captured his heart, and it wouldn’t stop beating.

When Abraham is released from the hospital, he moves to Del Rey to be closer to Roman, and because he has no one else in his life who truly cares about him.

Slowly, he and Roman begin a tentative friendship that turns into something more enduring than they’d ever dreamed of, but enemies from the past threaten everything and everyone Roman and Abraham love.

I was really looking forward to Roman’s story after reading the other books and I’m glad I did. He found his mate in Abraham, the ranger that had been wounded after saving him. Poor Roman felt guilty, but he felt a connection with his savior.
Abraham felt it too, maybe that’s why he didn’t die from his injuries. They had to bring him back to life 3 times before he was finally stable. From then on, it was kinda fast paste, but I didn’t mind. After being abused and surviving, Roman deserved his happiness and Abraham was such a sweetheart. Oh, he’s a shifter too, though he didn’t know it. I was hoping he was something special, lol, but he turned out to be a….(gotta read the book) 😉
The bad guys weren’t in the story much. It wasn’t until the end that something bad had happened. Two things actually. Good thing Abraham is rich.
Let me start by saying that I have not read previous stories in this series.  That being said, I did feel a little lost and would recommend reading previous stories so that you’re able to know all of the players in this one.  I had no idea why there was conflict, was lost as to who was paired with whom and who were friends – there was just a lot going on in this story and I might have known more going in had I read the previous books.

Abraham is injured, somewhat lost, has horrible parents who are after his wealth and pines for Roman, a medicine man who he has come to care for – due to their shared history.  Abraham is a steady heartbeat throughout the story.  He is calm, strong, understanding and eventually, he finds things out about his own past that help him feel a sense of belonging.  I think that he was missing that while in the hospital and even might have when he was a park ranger.

Then you have Roman – the pack medicine man who is so innocent.  He doesn’t understand his feelings that he has when he’s around Abraham – when he does realize what he’s feeling, it’s so foreign that he’s kind of scared of the feelings.

You have so many secondary characters in this story that they were hard to track.  Then you also have the “bad guys” who might be shifters, but that was never really that clear to me.

There were also a few editing issues – misspellings, duplicated words, etc.

Overall, this was a good story, but not one that I would read again.
