As a young gay man—and a werepanther—all Jin Rayne yearns for is a normal life. Having fled his past, he wants nothing more than to start over, but Jin’s old life doesn’t want to let him go. When his travels bring him to a new city, he crosses paths with the leader of the local were-tribe.
Logan Church is a shock and an enigma, and Jin fears that Logan is both the mate he fears and the love of his life. Jin doesn’t want to go back to the old ways, and mating would irrevocably tie him to them. But Jin is the mate Logan needs at his side to help him lead his tribe, and he won’t give Jin up so easily. It will take time and trust for Jin to discover the joy in belonging to Logan and how to love without restraint.
This book had everything I love in a shifter paranormal romance and so much more!
So Jin is a Reah which is a highly valued being with the panther shifters. Their mates are Semel only so Jin does whatever he can to avoid the Semel because he is not ready to mate. He is so highly sought after that some are not above using force when necessary to take him as their mate. Well Jin is also the only Reah that is male usually only woman are Reah’s.
So Logan Church finds out about Jin and requests a meeting to see if he is his mate. Well the moment he lays on Jin he knows that Jin is his mate. Jin fights it for awhile unsure of Logan’s real feelings..
There is angst, action and so much steam in this book everything mixed together perfectly!
There are so many different characters you meet in this book. Something happens at the end that puts you on the edge of your seat worried. So I really do not want to give out any spoilers because this book is definitely one you should read for yourself. I love shifter books and the way the author built this world of panthers and she wrote these characters was amazing!
All together I really loved this book!
I would definitely recommend this book!
