Rating: 5 of 5 Stars


Finding his mate should have been Patrick Holland’s greatest day, instead it turned into a nightmare with one phone call. His mate didn’t want him. His heart broke, but at sixteen he was too young to do anything. The next ten years—ten long years— of Patrick’s life are spent at odds with his mate. Split by forces he can’t comprehend and a long line of misunderstandings, Patrick doubts he’ll ever get the man he’s both loved and hated.

Jake Richmond never expected to come home from Uni to find the youngest Holland brother was his mate. Knowing the news might uplift his still grieving father, Jake shares the news only to have his young mate threatened. Jake does the only thing he can think of, protect Patrick. The next ten years are nothing but torture for Jake as he watches his mate grow into a remarkable young man.
They say time heals all wounds, but how much time?

Please note: FM has been reedited, and expanded by about 50,000 words.

My View:

At sixteen years old a very inexperienced Patrick came face-to-face with Jake. Jake happened to be his brother Alex’s much older and much more experienced best-friend, as well as Patrick’s mate. They realized that with the age difference and the close connection of the two families that things would be difficult, and their lives would change forever. Neither of them realized just how much. When a dark unseen force threatens to tear them apart, Jake goes to great lengths to save Patrick’s life. He may not be able claim him, but he won’t hand deliver him to a killer either. When Patrick’s advances are turned down time and time again, will he finally give up on Jake and find someone to heal his shattered heart? In this the last book of the Holland Brothers series Ms. Griffin treats us by starting from the beginning, before sexy tattooed Holland brother Alex becomes Alpha. I for one wasn’t sure how I would feel about this.  I will tell you, I was already a fan of the Holland Brothers but this walk through the past made me love them even more. A great end to a great series. Thank you Toni Griffin for the most enjoyable series I have read in some time.
