Shane River is the last of the Bad Oak boys to feel the pull of his animal trying to get out. Problem is, once he shifts, the wolf wants nothing more than to run far away… alone. He’s an Alpha Lone Wolf, and that means he doesn’t need a pack.
Tim Cooper thought his father was human. He wasn’t. He thought his werewolf mother could survive anything. She didn’t. He thought he’d never be able to shift, but he thought wrong, and the truth is more disturbing than anything he could’ve imagined.
When Shane finds Tim’s mother dying in the desert, he vows to track down the vicious wolf-coyote hybrids responsible for the attack. He doesn’t expect her son Tim: a hybrid who has no idea what he is. He doesn’t expect Tim’s animal to call to his wolf. And he certainly doesn’t expect to mate with a creature ravaged by grief, but when instinct howls, the wolf must obey.
Lone Wolf is book four in the Bad Oak Boys series which I have had great fun reading and would recommend to fans of shifter romance.
Bad Oak Boys are a popular and famous boy-band that are learning to deal with a latent werewolf gene, manage having true mates thrust into their lives and then the real doozy that is Mpreg.
To get the most out of this series and to understand the storyline clearly you need to start at the beginning. Each book concentrates on a different member of the band but there is a storyline that carries through the whole series dealing with hybrids and a drug designed to make the wolves compliant.
Shane River is the final band member to gain his fur and his mate and he has a really hard time accepting things. Where the members before him have all settled into pack life when meeting their animal side things aren’t as simple for Shane as he is an Alpha Lone Wolf therefore preferring to keep the rest of his family at a distance and spend long spells alone. I had wondered how the author was going to give Shane a mate that didn’t require living with the rest of the pack and in the end the answer was quite simple – Shanes mate is a hybrid, but not one of the bad guys.
Tim Cooper has no idea what mix in his DNA but has always been aware that his mother was a wolf. They have lived a scattered life that has involved running from a hidden enemy every couple of months and until recently his mother has always managed to keep him safe. The day her safety fails is the day everything goes to hell for Tim and he quickly learns his true heritage.
Fighting with the hybrids plays a large in this story. Shane and Tim weren’t my favourite couple of the series – I found myself frustrated with both of them, especially the way Shane had to reiterate he was a lone wolf constantly. It was fun though and it was great to catch up with the previous couples once again.
