Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order.
Micah is the Alpha of the Angel pack. A pack he started 200 years ago that is made up of wolves that either were kicked out or left their home packs for being gay. On a night out with his pack mates, he hears Jesse singing for the first time at a strip club. But Jesse is a slow to give in right away, as he is leery. Just when things seem to be moving along threats from others, try to destroy the mating before it can happen.
There are the normal elements of shifter mating. Instant attraction and need to mate. Micah is the typical larger than life alpha and wants it all now. Micah pushes Jesse to hard and he gets skittish and almost leaves. So it is not a unique take on the werewolf world. Yes, Micah is the big tough Alpha but all he really does want to love and take care of this mate and make Jesse happy. Jesse has been hurt badly in the past, first by his family, and then by others he thought he could trust. So trusting Micah takes some doing.
What drives this book are the characters, the conflicts, and connections that happen among them. The secondary characters are just as interesting as the MCs. Taylor is off the wall crazy and I loved him the first time he jumped off the page. The friendship Jesse and Taylor have is as important as the mating between Micah and Jesse. The other packs members are just as memorable. They leave you wanting them to get a HEA too.
This was a great start to the series. There are moments of laughter and a few that may make a tear or two leak. There are some good twists thrown in that keep things moving along nicely. I enjoyed it a great
