This is a pretty cheesy Harlequin type mm romance book. It is over the top sappy; which I have been known to enjoy if I like the MC. But I just didn't connect with the wolf or stallion or the contrived conflict btwn Jonah's "fundamentalist" family. It was all just too much and the writing was pretty mediocre. I almost DNF it, but the narrator was pretty good so I pressed on. Lots of sex but not much else IMHO. Not worth a credit unless you like that sort of thing. Maybe a sale.
The premiss was good, original. But I found the story lacking. It consists of a lot of dialogue between the MCs and a lot of Cole's thoughts. There is a lot of repetition in those thoughts, and a lot of angst/negative thinking. It's not bad though, the emotions are quite intense and there are several intriguing concepts. The Kindle price is low enough for it to be something to pick up.
I got the 'audio companion' with it for a nice price too, so that's ok. The narration wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. Part of that is personal preference, part of it is that the narrator doesn't differentiate between characters very much.
