Book Blurb

Benji ran away from Stellan three years ago when he discovered that they were mates. Not because he didn't want the alpha as his mate but because Stellan refused. But now Benji's in trouble and his sexy mate may be the only thing that can save him.

Stellan wanted Benji the moment he met him, but Benji didn't have the mating scent. Reluctantly, Stellan agreed to mate with someone else. When he receives a desperate phone call telling him that Benji is in trouble, he wants to ignore it but he can't. Despite everything, he still has feelings for Benji.

Kody is a rogue lion working for the council enforcing their rules. When he receives a call from Alpha Stellan to go check on Benji, a man that disappeared three years ago, Kody agrees. What he finds when he arrives is a mess so terrible he has nothing left to do but call in the alpha, especially when Kody learns that both Benji and Stellan are his mates.

Book Review

This is a fun, light read about three male lion shifters who each have their own dark secrets and histories, have suffered rejection in various forms and have no idea how to have a two-way relationship, never mind a triangle of love interests. I must admit that I really liked this book, even though it wasn't anything radically new and the plot was more about the developing relationship(s) that any big, dark secrets. But then, I am a fan of Stormy Glenn's books and love most of what she writes.

Benji has suffered rejection from the man he knows is his mate, left his pride to buy a farm 300 miles away and is now inexplicably being beaten up by a gang of town bullies on a regular basis. The town sheriff is in league with them, so it's pretty hopeless. His mate, Stellan, who has no clue he really is Benji's, finally sends Kody, a lone enforcer, to check stuff out - rather than doing it himself. Once Stellan hears how bad things are, he does make the trip - and that is when the threesome discovers they are all mates and the REAL chaos starts.

If you like a simple, straightforward romance about a suffering man with steely determination to survive, and two stronger males who can't wait to come to the rescue, you will probably like this book.
