Dating a younger guy wasn’t anywhere in Zack’s plans, but can he ignore the instincts of his wolf?
Zack Harrington noticed David Dewitt the first time the guy showed up in Harrington Hills, but their first meeting was far from perfect. A few months later Zack still can’t forget about him, and now when the two of them belong to the same pack, their paths cross even more. The problem is, David is barely twenty-two and Zack still remembers how stupid he was at that age.
David knows he’s young, but he’s tired of hearing about it all the time. He’s not a kid and he hates being treated like one, even—or especially—by the hot deputy sheriff. But as they get to know each other better and the sparks between them turn hotter, David’s willing to leave that behind.
Can they move past the age difference and their own personal hang-ups?
Or will they ultimately fall into a trap of miscommunication and hiding?

I love shifter stories. In most stories about shifters, they are far more in the paranormal realm but this one was not and that is what I liked about it. There was real world issues in this book so even though it is a shifter book, it was more on a believable scale.
Zach was attracted to David from the moment he met him. But he fought that attraction like he never has before,. It had nothing to do with worrying the pack would not except it or the fact that he works for the police department but rather because of the 8 year difference in age between them.
David is 22 years old but he is not like normal 22 year olds. He is mature for his age and he already owns his own company doing construction work. David is used to it being just him and his older brother Charlie since their parents are both dead. Charlie raised David and feels responsibile for him and Charlie having a hard time letting go now that David is older. He still sees him as his responsibility and his younger brother instead of his younger brother who is now an adult.
As I said this book dealt with real world issues, age being the main one. I like how Megan Linden took this book that has a paranormal aspect to it but also made it relatable to readers as being an issue that some people may have to deal with. That made this book so much better. Megan Linden did an awesome job and I cannot wait till the next book in this series comes out.
