Exiled by his pack as a teen, Omega wolf Simon Moorehead learns to bury his gentle nature in the interest of survival. When a hulking, rough-faced Alpha catches Simon on pack territory, he tries to escape what he’s sure will be imminent death. But instead of killing him, the Alpha takes Simon home.
A man of action, Mitch Grant uproots his life to support his brother in leading the Blue Mountain pack. Mitch lives on the periphery, quietly protecting everyone, but always alone. A mate is a dream come true for Mitch, and he won’t let little things like Simon’s rejections, attacks, and insults get in their way. With patience, seduction, and genuine care, Mitch will ride out the storm while Simon slays his own ghosts and Mitch’s loneliness.
I don’t think there is a Cardeno C shifter book written that I haven’t devoured and enjoyed. Nobody does sexy wolves better! This one is a fast little read but jam packed with everything you could want.
Simon Moorehead was banished from his pack as a young teen along with his mother for being an omega and gay. Life ‘after pack’ is not easy for them and they struggle for years moving from one place to the next to avoid trouble. Any trust he had in a pack or in shifters in general has been beaten out of him. Denying his omega tendencies he acts tough and cold but it is slowly killing his spirit.
Years later he returns to his old pack grounds to bury his mother and is caught by the current pack Alphas brother Mitch. Mitch has caught his scent and is overjoyed at finally finding his mate even if Simon wants nothing to do with him and tries to escape. Finding a mate is not going the way Mitch had expected and he is left hurt and sad at Simon’s dismissal.
This is a story of trust and the biggest problem is Simon doesn’t trust anyone but in particular shifters. Mitch is a tad overzealous initially and quickly learns that tying Simon to the chair and bed is not the best way to keep his mate with him. He takes a step back and slowly begins to listen to what Simon has to say instead of using his wolf instincts and things run a far more smoothly. Communication is definitely the way forward!
Their friendship is slow and tentative but the changes can soon be seen in Simon. Mitch is clinging onto the hope that Simon will be able to trust him someday but the man has been so hurt all throughout his life that it’s a tough call. When it does finally happen it feels all the more real and it is also hot as hell!
Great main and secondary characters and great start to a new series which has left me looking forward to the next book.
