Brian Townsend was having one hell of a week. Rejected by his parents, kicked out of his pack and now his car breaks down on his way south. What else could go wrong? He soon finds out when the police rock up, and the sexy cop turns out to be his mate. What he didn’t expect was his mate to walk away from him, without so much as a backward glance.
Marcus Holland was having one hell of a week. Breaking up with his girlfriend, and then copping an earful from his mother about settling down and having kids. All he wanted was to go home and relax. Little did he know one last call-out on his way home would change his life for ever.
Can Marcus come to terms with the fact his mate is a man or will he risk losing Brian forever. However, not everyone in the pack is entirely happy with this mating.
Though it doesn’t offer anything new to the shifter genre, and was in fact totally predictable, and even though Brian could have been a woman for all the masculine qualities he was given (hint: a penis is pretty much the only masculine quality he has), I still enjoyed it.
Sometimes predictable is good. It’s comforting in it’s own way. This was just what I needed, right when I needed it and by the time I finished listening I was smiling.
Bottom line? I enjoyed it enough to want to pick up the second book, which is Alex’s story.
