Publisher's Summary

“His name is Salvatore Rossi. He’s a vampire. And he’s my true mate.”

By not relying on anyone except himself, Salvatore Rossi escaped a dead-end existence and reached the height of corporate success. But just when he has everything he always wanted, fate throws Salvatore a challenge he can’t solve alone, and a young wolf-shifter comes to his rescue.

Since childhood, Yoram Smith’s family was certain he would grow to become alpha and save their beloved pack from its slow demise. When the time comes for a new leader, Yoram is forced to juggle his duty to care for a splintering pack with his duty to care for an absent mate, and his own strength suffers. Being turned into a vampire didn’t alter Salvatore’s life philosophy: If you don’t rely on anyone, nobody can let you down. But when the boy who saved his life becomes a man who needs his help, the icy vampire must find his humanity.

We're headed back to Yafenack

When staunch oldworld traditions come head to head with the reality of ever evolving reality, there's bound to be those that refuse to conform and challenge change.

Yoram Smith met his true mate at the tender age of 8 years old. Of course he had no idea that was what he was feeling. All he knew was the man smelled amazing, he felt a pull to him and he would do anything to keep that man alive. As the boy becomes a man, his true mate, the one who's life he saved, continues to rebuff him. But Yoram refuses to give up on the man destined to be his love.

Salvatori Rossi didn't have the best upbringing. As soon as he was old enough, he got as far away from his family as possible and starting a lucrative business that still strives to this day. The problem is, he's yet to find anyone he wants to share his success with. When a boy begs his uncle to save Sal's life, everything he thinks he knows, he starts to question. And when that boy becomes a man and desperately needs Sal's help, surprisingly, Sal gives it.

This is one of the most well written and diversely characterized Shifter series you can read, in my humble opinion. With each new installment, more of the Shifter world reveals itself. The people, the laws and the stubborn, unyielding beliefs some of them refuse to let go of. I love the way CC weaves the different stories together. This book and the storyline ties directly into the other three books and perhaps gives details and information you were wanting from those books. But mostly, it's a love story about two men, both stubborn as hell, but also loyal to a fault.

Narrated by Charlie David, need I say more. I absolutely love this mans voice. The different tones and nuances he possess and how he brings the story to life for the reader/listener. Definitely a must read series and I would stress starting with book 1 if you haven't already had the pleasure.

I'd give up forever

Charlie David does a fantastic job narrating.
He's got a nice deep voice but yet he can change the tone and depth to give each character their own "personalities".

The story itself is actually kind of sad.
Yoram finds his True Mate at a very young age, 7 to be exact. Only problem is, his mate was 30 at the time. Even then Yoram knew and tried to protect his mate, even from his own family.

Fast forward 7 more years and Yori goes to visit Sal oy to be shot down, again.
Sill, Yori doesn't give up "taking care of his mate" .

Sal may not know about true mates an bonds, as he has been turned into a vampire but Yori's uncle, Miguel. So he isn't quite sure why human blood just isn't enough for him. Even after getting blood bags donated by an anonymous gifter, he still resists. He knows who it's from, but all he can remember is that child that showed up in his office, and he cannot reconcile between the two.

So when his donations stop coming for a few months, he gets a little nervous and finally decides to bite the bullet and make a trip to the Pack lands.

I think this is why I liked this story so much...
it wasn't really instantaneous love/lust...it was spread over two decades. I like how Yori pits it though, with all the turmoil of the old pack Alpha, Sal would have never been accepted and Yori would have been thrown from pack, therefore never becoming alpha.

CC never let's us down though, we ALWAYS get our HEA. This one was a great one too. I loved that Sal was helping to update the pack in technology and education, to keep them moving forward and being a self sufficient pack.

Charlie David returns to narrate the fourth, and final, book in Cardeno’s wonderful Mates series. Many of the characters from the series also return for this installment making it a reunion for the reader. I love that there’s continuity throughout the series by using the same narrator so you have consistent character voices, which makes this even better to listen to on a binge with all four books.

I really appreciated the dual POV, especially with the audio, because by telling the story from both Yorry and Sal’s points of view the reader gets a better understanding of where each character’s coming from throughout the story. I loved the story, the characters, the cameos, and how everything eventually plays out.

I feel like To Touch You is a really wonderful ending to a truly entertaining series (even though I still hope this isn’t really the end).

“I’ll gladly give up forever to touch you.”

If you’re looking for paranormal stories with passion, humor, multi-dimensional characters, and terrific HEAs, I’d absolutely recommend this series.
