Holland Brothers: Book 3
Next Book: Forbidden Mate
Life isn't meant to be easy, but for Zachary Bennet the last two years have been downright hell. The one shining light in his life, his precious daughter, Hayley. Deciding he needs a clean break, Zack gets a new job in a small town called Leyburn in the hopes they can settle down and live a peaceful life.
Between worry over one brother's increasingly erratic behavior and constantly walking in on the other two making out with their mates, Simon Holland is ready to pull his hair out. All he'd ever wanted in life was a mate and a family. When his wish is finally answered with Zack's arrival, Simon finds out first-hand how far hate and bigotry can drive some people. But life wasn't meant to be easy and Simon would protect what was his to the end.

Zach’s story starts off when he meets a woman! She ends up his BFF and the mother of his daughter but ends up leaving him essentially a widower and a single father. Her family ends up being super creepy and Zach flees, luckily to land in the same Pack as his Mate, Simon.
Simon is one of the middle Holland brothers and seeing his older brothers mate up has him yearning for his own start at a family.
Though both Zach and Simon want to mate, Halley – Zach’s daughter – provides a few wrinkles to the process.
Luckily, the power of the mate bond and the Holland brothers make everything work out in the end.
Just as with the other books in this series, the chemistry between Zach and Simon is scorching hot! Halley is really cute and a remarkable 2 year old. We get to see the other couples and Brian and Alex begin to learn that there’s something special about being mated into the Holland family.
I really love this series. The writing is excellent, the characters are unique and Zach is different from Brian and Jason in that he’s not the typical “twink”. Halley adds a slightly different twist to things though the “evil family” plot is pretty predictable.
One complaint is that nobody spends a lot of time in wolf form and beyond the mating thing and some senses being heightened this could have been a story about anyone falling in love in an instant.
4.5 of 5 stars
Dominic McCartney did another excellent job with this narration. He manages to give even Halley a sweet little girls voice at the same time giving Alex the super-deep Alpha voice. He’s great with emotion, handles the “Australian” perfectly and absolutely added to my overall enjoyment of this series.
5 of 5 stars
Overall 4.75 of 5 stars
This book is incredibly boring and could have been written about humans since the pack is not involved. If you enjoy reading about a young guy raising a two year old girl and her pink dresses this book is for you.
I am in love with the series. I enjoyed very much the storyline between Simon and Zack. I highly recommend this series. and Tori Griffin just became one of my favorite authors.
