When Storm Wishfall is sent on an errand for his alpha, he doesn't expect to discover two young Asian men hiding on a boat in fear for their lives. He definitely isn't expecting one of them to be his mate. After encountering the young men's captors, the alpha devises a plan to rescue the three other men who were kidnapped along with his mate, Kyoshi, and Kyoshi's cousin, Keata, and the pack must band together to curtail a human trafficking ring before any more innocent lives are ruined. In the meantime, Kyoshi must come to terms with his new life. Storm searches for a way to convince the cynical human they're destined to love each other, but something lurking deep inside Kyoshi is forcing its way out. Are these two as different as they believe, or can they find a way to share their lives?

In this series, a “warrior” – a wolf shifter who is almost always super alpha and super huge- finds a “mate” – usually much smaller and quirky – and then proceeds to have some kind of adventure.
In this case, Storm finds and mates the feisty Kyoshi. Storm is all wolf but has mage blood in his lineage so his eyes change colors. Kyoshi is a rescue from a sex slave ship, tiny, spunky and full of protectiveness for his cousin Keata.
Kyoshi and Keata have some pretty exciting reveals coming up which help explain their easy acceptance of wolf shifters in existence and there continues to be a threat from their first captors.
These Brac Pack stories are so much fun! Sure, each of them is VERY SIMILAR to the other, but they are also each unique and full of humor.
There is always a fairly quick insta-love portion, a “rescue me” portion and a “HEA” portion. But in between we get laughs, fun and hot smexy times. Since they are meant to be read in order, we also get to see the previous mated couples frequently and by the end we not only have over 30 books in this series but at least three other off shoots that also intertwine with this series making nearly 100 books that are all somewhat related and now we get the new generation which includes the kids!
I’ve loved this series and it’s companion series and I recommend reading them in order of release for the most benefit.
So far Johnny East has narrated all the books in this series and that’s wonderful. He does a great job with the deep Alpha growly voices and he tries at the various accents (in this case a vague Asian) and tries to modulate between all the different characters as best he can given the vast number of men involved in these stories!
I was a bit … confused… when he chose to give both Keata and Kyoshi rather deep, masculine voices when they are clearly shown as being small and rather effeminate… but… I loved his “accent” and attitude for them so I quickly got over it!
If you put your mind on pause and just enjoy the fun that is crazy shifter romance – you’ll enjoy this series very much!
Highly recommended in both book and audio format.
