Publisher's Summary

Kane Matthews, Alpha of his small wolf pack in Cloverleah has been raised to believe that mates are not possible for gay men and has lived his life accordingly. Kicked out of his home pack years before because of his sexual orientation Kane has built a solid and comfortable life for himself in the small town of Cloverleah. Imagine his surprise when an unscheduled visit to the small town's diner unleashes a flood of emotions in the man he didn't think possible - not least of all, lust. But finding out it is possible for wolf shifters to have gay mates is just one of the things that Kane has to overcome if he is to have the forever future he has been hoping for.

Shawn Bailey never expected to find his mate. He is just too different - an "Other" who has the power to instill fear in any other shifter. After spending ten years on the run from his Alpha father he spends most days just trying to stay alive. When a chance encounter brings him face to face with his mate Shawn has to decide if the man in front of him is worth staying for.

But with hunters, Alpha challenges, Kane's parents and a smitten Alpha from another pack all interfering in Kane and Shawn's budding romance, not to mention some surprising answers about Shawn's own unique talents can these two true mates find the happily ever after they are looking for?

Hoping the next one is better

I have a mixed review for this one. The storyline is good. The writing, only so so. I was glad to read this was her first book, I'm sure her books have improved with experience. It sounded as if no one read it out loud before they turned it into an audiobook. People don't speak the way her characters do. It just didn't sound natural. But good enough that I will probably listen to the next in the series.

more magic than I like in a bataverse novel

so the story was interesting. in a sea of omegavers book its refreshing to see other verses shown. that being said I'm surprised no one has mentioned the rape implications of the mc's. the narrator wasn't terrible. had many word errors. names changes, and charactes voice changes. as I said In title there was more magic than I liked. the mc's were so op to the point that the story was redundant.

Didn't like the Narrator performance.

The narrator pronounce has several words oddly, and can pull you out of the story overall.

A good book but disappointing narrator

I have read and reread this book many times and very much looked forward to the audiobook but it has been spoiled by the narrator.

His pronunciation of certain words leaves a lot to be desired and none of the characters are particularly masculine but more of a caricature of how males sound. He also doesn't remember that Shawn is one of the main characters.

The other issue is that the recording is garbled and jumps in places.

I remember now...

I bought the books a long time ago until the stories became too repetitive. I enjoyed the premise of a breakaway pack and its development throughout the series. However, the story does become a bit lost with the constant bonking. Obviously, when reading, these very frequent interludes can be skim read, but I’m finding that it’s a lot different in audio! I’m not enjoying the retelling as much as I thought I would, not only the constant sex, but also as the narrator does not sound like the characters as I imagine them to be! Just not to my taste...maybe it’s me, but nah, I won’t buy any more of the series.
