Wolf shifter Falco Gladstone knew Carter McCloud was his mate when they were in seventh grade, but school and the foster care system tore them apart. Years later, Falco is second in command of his Michigan pack, serving under an uncle who cares more about his own power than the welfare of their people. The alpha orders Falco to marry and produce offspring—but Falco’s already found his mate, and mates are forever.

Carter’s lonely life is turned upside down when he detects a familiar scent on the wind. The mates might have found each other, but their happily ever after is far from guaranteed. Falco’s commitment to Carter puts him at odds with his uncle’s plans, and when one of the alpha’s enforcers starts shadowing the couple, something must be done—something that will either cement their relationship or destroy it once and for all.

There is nothing better then reading a good book about shifters. And Dirk Greyson did a good job on that by writing this book.

Sometimes people have to make the hard choices in life and pray they are making the correct one for not only their selves but also all of those that you love and hold dear to your heart. This is the thing that Falco was faced with.

Falco knows that he will not be accepted by his Uncle and Aloha of the pack if or when they find out that he has a male mate. But the heart wants what it wants and when you are a Fated mate it makes it harder because the pull is so strong. But as of now Falco does not have to worry about it because he found his mate at the age of thirteen but two weeks after meeting him he was gone.

Falco never got over not knowing where is mate Carter went too after meeting him but he also knew that he nor his wolf could ever be happy with anyone else so he just went through life for twelve years existing but not really living. This worked out in a way for him since his uncle is homophobic and has made it clear that as the Alpha of the pack, he will not allow same sex couples in his pack because it will ruin the pack. So Falco not having his mate at the moment makes it easier for him to hide who he is but his uncle does not make it easy on him because he is insisting that Falco take a wife and have pups of his own. Well the wife is never going to happen that is for sure and neither will the pups if he never finds his mate again.

By a twist of fate, Falco finds his mate again and he was so much closer then he would have imagined. But that does not mean that it is going to be easy. The best things in life never are.

Once Falco finds Carter again, Falco is faced with the question of what is he going to do now. If he claims his mate as his own he will not be accepted by the Alpha and most likely banished from the pack. But if he does not claim who is his heart and always will be then he will break notnonly his heart but Carters too and neither may never recover from it. Falco has to figure out what is good for not only him but the fate of the pack also.

I really enjoyed this book. I hope that Dirk Greyson will make this into a series because this would be an amazing series and I think that there could be so much more that this pack has to offer for all of Dirk’s readers. I would love to see what the future holds for not only Carter and Falco but for Willard and maybe even PC. Those would be some very interesting stories that is for sure. This was a great read and I look forward to more by Dirk in the future.

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.
