Agent Cooper Dayton is going to meet his boyfriend’s werewolf family. Unarmed. On their turf.
And he’s bringing his cat.
When Agent Cooper Dayton agreed to attend the funeral for Oliver Park’s grandfather, he didn’t know what he was getting into. Turns out, the deceased was the alpha of the most powerful werewolf pack on the eastern seaboard. And his death is highly suspicious. Regardless, Cooper is determined to love and support Park the way Park has been there for him.
But Park left him woefully unprepared for the wolf pack politics and etiquette. Rival packs? A seating order at the dinner table? A mysterious figure named the Shepherd? The worst is that Park didn’t tell his family one key thing about Cooper. Cooper feels two steps behind, and reticent Park is no help.
There are plenty of pack members eager to open up about Park and why Cooper is wrong for him. Their stories make Cooper wonder if he’s holding Park back. But there’s no time to get into it…as lethal tranquilizer darts start to fly, Cooper needs to solve the mystery of the alpha’s death and fight for the man he loves—all before someone else dies.
This was such a great read. There are so many twist and turns I felt like I was on the Ferris wheel. Charlie Adhara did such a great job on this book. I was blown away by how everything unfolded and who turned out to be the bad guy (or big bad wolf) in the end. Talk about a total shocker!!! I never saw it coming how things played out, which is amazing on its own because I am usually really good at figuring out who the bad guy is in the end!!!
Cooper and Park have come a long way in their relationship. Cooper has learned to open up and to start talking to Park about what is going on with him. Which is not easy. But just when Cooper and Park think things are finally going to settle down for them, Park is thrown a huge curve ball. Park receives a call about his grandfather. He has passed away and now Park has to go home for the wake.
Park is very unsettled about having Cooper go with him but he knows it is something that has to be done. Cooper can tell Park has shut down and is not letting him in right now but the reasoning behind it, Cooper does not understand. At first Cooper thought Park just needed time to adjust and grieve his grandfather but after they reach Park’s family home, Cooper figures out Park has been keeping secrets.
At first Cooper is hurt because of the secrets but he accepts it may have been done on purpose. But as more and more secrets rear their ugly head, Cooper starts to question everything between him and Park. Not to mention it seems that someone purposely killed Park’s grandfather and seem to be gunning for more people as well.
Can Cooper and Park figure out how to handle everything that is being thrown at them? Can they figure out who the killer is before someone else ends up dead? Will Cooper be able to forgive Park for all the secrets?
This was such a good read. I literally could not put this book down. I really look forward to more books by Charlie Adhara in the future. I definitely recommend this book for others!!!
