One hundred and forty years ago, Harry, Edward, and Francis met an angel, a demon, and a sorceress while escaping imprisonment and worse! They emerged with a new family—and shapeshifting powers beyond their wildest dreams.

Now Harry and his brothers use their sorcery to rescue those enslaved in human trafficking—but Harry’s not doing so well. Pining for Suriel the angel has driven Harry to take more and more risks until his family desperately asks Suriel for an intervention.

In order for Suriel to escape the bindings of heaven, he needs to be sure enough of his love to fight to be with Harry. Back when they first met, Harry was feral and angry, and didn’t know enough about love for Suriel to justify that risk. Can Suriel trust in Harry enough now to break his bonds of service for the boy who has loved his Familiar Angel for nearly a century and a half?

This was such an amazing read. I truly enjoyed this book so much. Once I started this book I could not put it down. It was just that good.

Harry, Edward, and Francis at a young age figured out that there is cruel people in the world. People who will use and abuse you for their own greed for money and for their own cruel pleasure. Being the oldest two Harry and Edward made a pack that they would do whatever was possible to get out of the brothel where they have been used many times over before that pain, heartache, and abuse can reach and touch their youngest brother Francis. When it becomes apparent that Cass (the man who has caused all their torture) has set his sights on Francis, Harry and Edward know that it is time to run.

What neither of them expected was to run into a scenario that was about to change their lives forever. When they ran, they ended up in the middle of something magical and out of this world. This is where they meet who becomes their mother and father, Emma and Leonard.

It is hard to trust the unknown but that is exactly what these three boys do when they accept what turns out to be an amazing gift that Emma gives them. Not only do they accept the ability to be able to shift and become a familiar and the Magic that comes along with it but they also accept the amazing gift of family. Something they never thought they would have.

Now 140 years later Harry is starting to get reckless and not heed the danger that he is constantly in so his family intervenes and calls down the one person that could heal the rest of Harry’s heartache from the past….Suriel, one of the angels that watches over this family.

With the possibility of Suriel and Harry finally admitting their feelings for the other, life for both of these men becomes not only better but in some ways worse.

What will happen when a human and an angel fall for one another? Can they find a way to be together or is it all just a pipe dream?

This book was full of excitement and adventure. Not to mention danger. Any Lane did an incredible job on this book. I really hope she is going to write Edward and Francis’ stories because if I had to guess Jose would be some incredible reading also. This is definitely a book on my highly recommended read list.

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.
