Publication Date & Length: Agust 1, 2013 – 124 pgs


Brian Townsend was having one hell of a week. Rejected by his parents, kicked out of his pack and now his car breaks down on his way south. What else could go wrong? He soon finds out when the police rock up, and the sexy cop turns out to be his mate. What he didn’t expect was his mate to walk away from him, without so much as a backward glance.

Marcus Holland was having one hell of a week. Breaking up with his girlfriend, and then copping an earful from his mother about settling down and having kids. All he wanted was to go home and relax. Little did he know one last call-out on his way home would change his life for ever.

Can Marcus come to terms with the fact his mate is a man or will he risk losing Brian forever. However, not everyone in the pack is entirely happy with this mating.

Brian is having a terrible week… then he finds Marcus, his mate, who only makes it worse… Marcus, who has always thought he was straight suddenly finds his mate is a man.. needless to say there is a whole lot of drama that goes on.. Brian is dealing with pain. Marcus is dealing with a mate that wasn’t the expected gender.
However, somehow, it all comes together so perfectly. This was a great story. I really enjoyed watching Brian open up as he became more and more comfortable with Marcus and their mating.
This was quite the fluffy love story since there wasn’t all that much angst, but I still found that I liked it more than I normally do such light stories since there was the whole unexpectedness of Brian being Marcus’ mate.
I do have to say I didn’t particularly care for the narrators voice for Brian, but that’s the only real issue I had with the narration.
