Keeping secrets from your mate is a struggle—especially when he can read your mind.
Sergeant is doing the night security shift to give his mate, Dillon, a break. On his rounds, he smells a stranger wolf and heads into the forest to investigate. What he finds is disturbing—and what happens next even more so. With events out of is control, he’s at a loss as to what to do. What the hell is going on?
Dillon wakes knowing something is wrong. He follows Sergeant’s trail into the forest and realizes that his mate is in deep trouble. A plane ride later, and with a few Highgate shifters by his side, Dillon has to find Sergeant fast—before any harm comes to him.
After a bizarre experience, Sergeant is free to go back to Highgate, but there is a stipulation. He must not tell Dillon—or anyone—what happened to him until the time is right. Sergeant detests keeping things from his life partner, but there is no alternative, and hiding secrets is what he must do. At the same time, Sergeant has a massive decision to make—one that will affect not only himself and Dillon, but the Highgate pack and all known shifter wolves, as well as other shifter species.
The burden is a heavy one, and Sergeant can’t wait to offload it. Time is holding him back, though, and he must wait before he can give an answer to something he never would have dreamed he’d have to contemplate.
This was a fun quick read!!! I really enjoyed how even though nothing too bad happened there was some excitement in this book.
Book six in the highgate series is based around Sergeant and his mate Dillion. Sergeant decides to give Dillion the night off of patrol and even though he hates working night patrol because he would normally be bored, there is something in the air and Sergeant is about to find out first hand exactly what is coming his way.
Once Sergeant is kidnapped Dillion waste no time rounding up the troops to go in to where Sergeant is being held. With his loss of mind connection half through Sergeants kidnapping, Dillion has no idea what kind of state he is going to find him in.
Once Dillion arrives at the destination that Sergeant is being held and Sergeant is released Dillion is still not able to connect with Sergeant through their mind connection and that sets Dillion’s nerves on edge because he knows that something is not right and he knows that Sergeant is keeping something from him.
Sergeant would love nothing more then to be able to able to tell Dillion what happened to him while being held captive but he knows he is not aloud too into the time is right. The problem is he needs Dillion more then ever in order to do what needs to be done. Sergeant has to decide what is more important, keeping his secret or letting Dillion in and letting him help him decide what is best to do.
This was a short story but it was a really sweet look into Sergeant and Dillion’s life. Into their connection with one another. It was nice reading a book that is on the serious side but at the same time was laced with lots of love and happiness. It was nice reading a book that shows such a connection between two people that they will do everything in their power to protect and support the one’s that they love. Great read!!!
