They must protect each other. No matter what.

Quinn has resigned himself to living a life alone. His cabin, on the outskirts of a village, is the perfect place for him to paint. No distractions, lots of peace and quiet—until he goes out for a run as a wolf and sees another wolf scarpering for its life.

Goddard is that wolf. He’s been running for God knows how long, and he’s tired of looking over his shoulder, waiting to be found by the one man Goddard doesn’t want finding him. Injured, he discovers a cabin and goes inside.

Quinn’s and Goddard’s lives are changed forever when they realize they are bonded mates. The thing is, there’s still the problem of the man from Goddard’s past to get over, and when an incident in the village means Goddard’s whereabouts is public knowledge, things might take a nasty turn.

Gone are the days when the two men had to stick by human law. Being mated means wolf law comes first—and if it means killing to keep each other safe, then that’s what they’re prepared to do. They must protect each other. No matter what.

Sometimes fate has a way of stepping in and making itself known when we least expect it too. That is exactly what happened to Goddard and Quinn.

This is a story about one man and on the run from the past and the danger that is constantly on his heels and about another man who is extremely lonely but believes that he has to live like that in order to protect the fact that he is a wolf shifter.

So when Quinn was out on a run late at night and sees another wolf get shot at, Quinn cannot not try to help them. Turns out the wolf shifter that was shot is Goddard. Goddard has lived in his wolf form for the most part for a while now because he is running from someone in his past that wants to seek revenge on Goddard for being an honest person.

When these two men meet it only takes a short time for them to realize they are Fated mates and takes even less time for them to bond. But Goddard has not been honest with Quinn about his life as a drifter and danger could be right around the corner. Will Goddard finally open up to Quinn before danger comes knocking on Quinn’s door? Or does Goddard do what he always does and runs instead?

This was a good, quick shifter read about figuring out if we face our past or if they finally stand and fight for what is right. I enjoyed this and the easy way that Goddard and Quinn was able to build a relationship and trust in each other. This was a great read about not letting someone run all over you. I really enjoyed this read.

Galley copy of Bo Matter What provided by Pride Publishing in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
