Love sneaks in like a thief in the night.
Danny’s parents raised him to believe his wolf was a curse. He’s part of the wealthy and powerful Connoll Pack, but only nominally. He abandoned that world to volunteer with supernatural kids, and he isn’t looking for a mate….
Max is a shifter who is also a detective. He’s working a case that could make or break his career. Danny’s caught up in the case he’s on, and he’s also irresistible. They’re a bad match—Max, an Alpha having trouble with his new powers and Danny, who trusts Alphas as far as he could throw one. But they can’t get enough of each other, and they might bond before they even see it coming.
They could be amazing together, but they have to get past a few obstacles—especially since someone close to Danny might be involved in the thefts Max is investigating.
This was a really good read. I was really surprised with the references to CAMP H.O.W.L. But with each of these series being closely tied together, it makes sense. Actually one of the main characters in this book once had to stay at the camp when he started shifting. Anyway, as far as this book goes, there is a bit of mystery to it. There is some family drama. There is mates and alphas and Alpha mates. There is also danger. So whatbwas not to love. Bru Baker did a great job on this book and I definitely look forward to the next book when it comes out.
Danny is the founder of Janus Foundation. This foundation helps foster children that need help with their shifter or paranormal selves adjusting. Danny works with the social workers, the foster families but most important the kids themselves. The kids is what is important to Danny. Being able to give these kids more opportunities to build a successful life is what Danny’s goals are. He wants them to have the things they need to learn and grow. So when he does fundraisers to buy iPads, computers, etc for these kids for their new school year, Danny is beyond excited.
But there is a problem that Danny did not forsee happening. Someone close to him decided to steal all of the merchandise from him. While waiting for the police to come to his home, which is where the merchandise is, Danny feels hopeless and helpless. When the police finally arrive, Danny meets a detective named Max. Turns out Max is a shifter as well and Ben though he was not the one called o the break in, he takes it upon himself to help Danny.
Max feels the connection to Danny almost immediately. But he cannot out his finger on why. Nor can he put his finger on why he wants to help Danny so much. But nonetheless he cannot see doing anything else but helping Danny.
After talking Danny and Max decide to get to know one another better. But theee is secrets between these two men that could possibly tear apart such a be Connection. Then there is the fact that the case that Max is working on is slowly turning more and more dangerous the closer he gets to figuring out who is behind all the break ins that he is working. Is all this going to be too much for such a new couple?
This was a great read. The only thing that I can say I would have liked to have more of is the Connoll pack members. Technically Danny is part of that pack but I think the story is more about Max’s pack instead of the Connell pack. I truly cannot wait for the next book to come out.
