Levi and Ian fall in love, but Ian is human and Levi – a werewolf- is not allowed to mate with a human without special trials being met. In this case..Show More », once the pair has bonded, they must separate for a year and then Ian must find Levi on his own exactly one year later.
That year apart is pure torture for both men, but Ian doesn’t handle it well at all. Ian ends up finding Darius, a vampire, and becoming lovers with him. When Ian and Levi re-connect, Levi is devastated – both because he was betrayed by Ian’s cheating and that he’d cheat with the wolves most hated enemy- vampires.
So… Ian runs off and of all things Darius and Levi end up pairing up to find him.
During that trip the two end up … you guessed it….hooking up! So now, when they finally find Ian, nobody knows what will happen next and who will end up with whom…
On top of all that, Levi’s clan wants both Ian and Darius (and probably Levi by extension) dead – so the three of them must all re-connect, sort out their relationship and evade the clan.
WOW. On the one hand this is exactly the type of ménage I hate. I strongly dislike the idea of an extra man screwing up the relationship between two loving partners. Ian is VERY hard to like here because he really betrayed Levi. It’s sort of explained and justified, but …. It’s still hard to accept.
Then add in Levi and Darius getting together – that’s almost impossible to accept – but it somehow makes sense…. But again, it’s hard.
The story is so compelling and LA Witt’s writing is so engaging that despite my concerns I was driven to finish and move on to book two so… we’ll see how this crazy ménage works out.
4 of 5 stars Audio
Jason Winters does a great job of trying to keep all these guys separate. They don’t have any really strong accents but I felt like I could mostly tell who was speaking at all times. He’s good with the emotion and easy to listen to. 3.5 of 5 stars
Overall I give this a cautious 4 of 5 stars for both the audio and the book and move on to book 2 with a bit of excitement and trepidation both.
So this is absolutely something you must read in order. Book one ends and book two essentially takes off from that exact point.
Our boys are..Show More » still in trouble and still running and get separated again….
This book was a bit tedious for me and I found myself zoning out a lot.
In book one there was excitement in the boys finding one another and joining their ménage together. In book two it’s all about the chasing. (It reminded me of the SUPER LONG last book of Harry Potter where Hermione and Harry are out being teenagers and angsting all over the place for what felt like FOREVER while they look for/wait for Ron. A good editing is needed there and here to make this move along at a better pace.)
Jason Winters has a bit of a lisp sometimes that began to annoy me a bit – probably because the book wasn’t nearly as captivating as book one.
My hope is that book three will redeem itself to me and I can go back to enjoying this series.
You have to read this to continue, but it’s not my favorite by a long shot.
