Blurb: Richard Tillson was happy with his life…well…sort of. He has spent the last few years of his life making a name for himself in the dance community, has a very expensive apartment in Manhattan and he knows he’s gorgeous. So why is he so miserable?
Enter Vernon “Vet” Tate. The older brother of Richard’s best friend Amanda Lynn. The first time the two men meet its when Vet is saving Richard’s life from an oncoming vehicle. Moments later Vet is turning Richard’s life upside down by telling him that his baby sister, who had passed weeks before, left her three newborn children to Richard, to share custody with Vet.
Things wouldn’t have been so bad for Vet, a wolf shifter, if Richard wasn’t also his mate, his very human, very male, and mate.
So how will Richard cope with becoming a father, giving up his sophisticated New York lifestyle for a ranch out in Wichita Falls, Texas, and finding out that not only do shape shifters exist, but he’s the mate of the Alpha?

Review: Richard Tillson’s mundane life is turned upside down when his best friend’s brother shows up on his doorstep with a letter announcing that Richard has been named co-guardian of Amanda’s triplets. Richard’s best friend Amanda was killed in a hunting accident and for whatever reason, decided her three babies would be best left in the care of Richard and her brother Vernon.
Richard teeters back and forth between accepting this, following through with Amanda’s wishes, and having a nervous breakdown. He doesn’t know that Vernon, or Vet as everyone calls him, as well as Amanda and the triplets are Wolf Shifters. And he doesn’t know that he is Vet’s mate. Sure, Richard is insanely attracted to Vet on an almost animalistic level, but shifters? Over the next 48 hours, Richard moves to Texas, learns the truth about Vet’s nature, becomes a father, a lover and a mate to Vet. Talking about moving fast!
I actually quite liked this little short, sexy, shifter story. There was a level of disbelief when it came to certain aspects of the story that I usually turn my nose up on. But then there were elements of reality that kept the story grounded, so it balanced out in the end. I absolutely loved Vet and his larger than life presence, that good ole boy accent Sean Crisden gave him, and the way he cared for Richard and the triplets.
This is a very sexual story, be warned it borders porn on paper, but the connection between Richard and Vet as I said was very animalistic, almost primal. So it was understandable that they were going at it on every flat surface they came in contact with.
Narrated by the great Sean Crisden, need I say more? I think this would have been a 3 star read for me had I read the print version. Crisden gave the story so much color with his tone inflections and nuances.
It’s short, sexy and steamy so I highly recommend this story, but I would lean toward the audio version.
