A Camp H.O.W.L. Novel
Happily ever after is right under their noses.
Harris has been keeping a big secret for years—his unrequited mate bond with his best friend, Jackson. He’s convinced himself that having Jackson in his life is enough. That, and his work at Camp H.O.W.L., keeps him going.
Things get complicated when Jackson applies for a high-ranking Tribunal job in New York City—far from Camp H.O.W.L. The position requires he relinquish all Pack bonds… and that’s when his wolf decides to choose a mate. Suddenly Jackson sees his best friend in a sizzling new light.
Their chemistry is through the roof, but they’re setting themselves up for broken hearts—and broken bonds—if Jackson can’t figure out a way to balance his career and the love that’s just been waiting for him to take notice.
Another amazing book in the Camp H.O.W.L series. This book was a great read with unrequited love and fated mates who try and fight fate. Big mistake let me tell you. Fate will get its way in the end whether you like it or not. What I love about this book is one of the main characters believes he knows what he wants for his future only to realize in the end there is something better for him but only if he quits trying to pull a fast one on Fate.
Jackson and Harris have been best friends forever. There is nothing wrong with them being best friends other than the fact Harris realized long ago that Jackson is his fated mate as well but he cannot tell Jackson. The reason being is because Jackson has plans for his life that do not include having a mate. Much less Harris. So Harris does what he believes is best and keeps the information to himself and longs for Jackson in silence.
Jackson knows Harris is his mate and has known for a while but he refuses to do anything about it. His plans do not include being mates especially since the job he is up for will not allow a mated individual to become their Enforcer. The job in question is a dangerous job and will set Jackson up to eventually find a pack that will allow him to become a second in command. This has been Jackson’s goal for as long as he can remember, so taking Harris as a mate is not an option.
Too bad for Jackson, because Jackson’s wolf has other plans and is not going to make it easy on Jackson in the least. So Jackson comes up with his own plan, spend time with Harris and make a clean break when the time comes to leave for the job.
Harris is shocked when Jackson kisses him. Even more shocked when Jackson suggests they make the most of their time together until it’s time for him to leave. Well you know the saying, the best laid plans and all that….well Jackson finds out the hard way how this is going to turn out for him and Harris as well. Might end up surprising you how it all plays out in the very end.
This was a great read and I hope there will be another Camp H.O.W.L book but if not hopefully the guys from Camp H.O.W.L will return in other books as guest appearances. Bru Baker is an incredible author.
