Blurb: “Sometimes, two people have to fall apart to realize how much they need to fall back together.” -Colleen Hoover
They came from two completely different lives: Tyler is a werewolf raised in a pack where being gay isn’t an option, and John was trapped in a hopeless marriage as a woman where he wasn’t allowed to transition into himself.
The thing they have in common: they both decided to abandon everything they had ever known in order to brave an uncertain future.
Fate and coincidence bring these two men together, and they feel the connection of kindred spirits. They decide to take a chance on the happiness that they both long for, but happiness never comes easy, and both of them carry heavy baggage and heavier secrets. Their bright future is darkened when shadows from each of their pasts come knocking, and Tyler and John must learn to better understand each other, to protect each other, and to forgive each other. No one ever said love was easy, but they must decide if it’s worth fighting for.
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A VERY HOT AND STEAMY BOOK, OVER 90,000 WORDS M/M LOVERS, INTENDED FOR 18 AND OLDER.
Review: I really enjoyed this well written story about two people who are drawn together yet each have a huge secret. Tyler is a werewolf. He left his pack due to the fact he’s gay and yet Becky pursued him as a mate relentlessly and would not take no for an answer. So one night he leaves. Now he has a job and is happy though lonely until he meets John.
John is trans. That is the secret he is harbouring. He works at a coffee place where sees Tyler every day. He is shy and scared due to his past abusive relationship until his friends talk him into going out where he sees Tyler and gets up the nerve to approach him.
I really liked how these struggled day to day with their secrets. It made it more realistic. Everything starts going wrong when the spiteful Becky shows up and causes problems in the form of John’s ex Michael. I have to say the thing that floored me in the story and changed my whole outlook on it was when John practically lived with Tyler, slept in the same bed, they held each other and cuddled yet Tyler didn’t notice anything amiss? I did not believe it in the least.
Drama, action, confrontations and love are all throughout.
