Blurb: Micah can be an ass, he admits it. But most of the time when he says something stupid, it’s a backfired attempt at teasing. Micah never pictured himself settling down, there were too many men and women out there to keep him busy hoping from one bed to another. There’s only been one man who got under his skin. His brother’s best friend. However, a series of misunderstandings and arguments and years of resentment aren’t easy to overcome.
Rylan’s mother dumped him on the pack’s doorstep when he was a pup after finding out her husband wasn’t quite human. It left Rylan with a chip on his shoulder and a need to prove himself. Micah can’t help but bite back when Rylan pokes at him, but always assumed that most of the animosity between them was relatively harmless and shrugged it off as just not getting along.
Since being cornered by his little brother and warned to play nice, Micah decides that maybe the past is better left where it is. Only before he can come to terms with his own mistakes and apologize, Rylan is kidnapped and no one knows where to look.
Micah searches until he is ready to collapse from exhaustion. He even challenges his alpha. The pack and coven desperately search for Rylan, but when they finally find Rylan after six weeks, it may be too late to save him.
Trevor’s devious mind and scheming nature isn’t going to be easily outwitted.
Review: Each book in Blood Moon Pack Alliance collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved.
There is something about the way that S.A. Welsh tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their mates with their entire lives. I had a blast reading this story.
Micah and Rylan have been at odds since they were teenagers. However if you look deep inside of him, you will see that every time he says something it backfires on him. When he had first started when his feelings for Rylan was when he was in his twenties. Rylan had asked him out and he turned him down. He was too old for Rylan and knew that he needed to mature.
Then when Rylan turned nineteen and ready, Micah had been pretty much wasted. He had said some nasty stuff to him, which he regretted even now. However when Rylan is abducted and missing for over six weeks, Micah is lost. He is angry and there is something back there that is trying to let it be known.
Rylan had always known that Micah was his mate. He tried to let Micah know, but it had always ended up with him getting hurt. Even now he smells the woman who Micah had been with. He had not expected to be kidnapped, beaten and tortured. They had done many things to him, even branding him and there was something in him that needed out.
However he feared shifting, because the ass had skinned him. It wasn’t till he was rescued that the others knew something had been done to him that even he had not expected. Now he was the one that was the danger. The pack had to come up with a way to keep them all safe and get Rylan back.
There is something about this story that makes the rest just perfect. Here they spent their time fighting what was meant to be. Even though Micah had not known they were mates, he felt something for Rylan. It wasn’t till Rylan was taken that he was willing to acknowledge it. He had tried to show Rylan that he was trying to make the past better. He was trying to apologize but Rylan had not known it. He blamed himself for it all. This is not one of those find, mate and instant love stories. There is a bit of pain and angst in it, so when the happiness begins, the story becomes even better.
I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the others in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When this amazing author puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a bit of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me almost everything I could want in a book.
I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.
