Terrell Hubbard, decorated Marine sergeant, proudly serves as Beta wolf to his True Alpha and Dominant. During a mission, he meets Staff Sergeant Kai Thayer, Pack Leader of the Camp Fallujah sippe. Terrell is thrown completely off balance by the strength of their mutual attraction and the intensity of their passion. His entire world felt perfect though, each time they came together to mark and claim one another.
In the chaos of a surprise attack Kai shows poor judgement, driving a wedge between Terrell and him, and landing Kai on the True Alpha’s bad side. Terrell is torn between his ferocious loyalty to his True Alpha, and his new but powerful feelings for Kai. In the battle’s aftermath, Terrell and Kai are drawn together in passion, hoping it’s not the final chance to mark their claims.
I think the best way to sum this up is that it was painfully short and the ending was left wide open. I am hoping this is only a look into T and Kai’s relationship and there is more to come. No confirmation has been made at the time of this post.
After waiting so long for this book, the 4th book in my favorite M/M romance series, I am happy that we got something new. I hung on every word and loved seeing Lucas and Noah again. I’m thrilled we got more and won’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
