Book Blurb

Matthew Jackson’s life just went from somewhat normal to a Hollywood horror movie, and just because he spent one weekend with the man of his dreams. It would be spectacular if that man was still around, but Rico Sullivan had split without a word. Now, Matty is left to deal with the aftereffects of their weekend of bliss together all by himself.

Getting dragged into a world he knew nothing about, Matty has to rely on complete strangers to keep him safe. When he finally does find Rico, life doesn’t get any better. For one, Rico thinks he’s insane. And for two, the same people that are after Rico have put Matty on their kill-on-sight list.

Matty and Rico are on the run from hunters out to execute them because they have violated shifter law by falling for each other. Escaping them would be a lot easier if they knew who they could trust or where they might find a safe haven. Until they do, they only have themselves to rely on…and the strange abilities Matty seems to be developing.

Book Review

Great start to a new series, with some interesting twists on werewolf lore. Not only do we have omegas with special abilities, they can also be born in both human and wolf-shifter form, are always male, and - this one was a little more unusual - can get pregnant. Of course there are also the evil hunters, out to kill any gay werewolf they can find. As to why - that is one of the questions set up to be answered as the series develops, I am sure.

Matty is a normal human, or so he thinks, until he spends a weekend with his dream man and everything changes. Not that he notices immediately, but when he does, all hell breaks loose. He finds it very difficult to adapt, but I can't blame him for that. He does have a lot happening to him. Luckily, he is able to stand up for himself, despite the hormones playing havoc with his emotions.

Rico is a wolf-shifter on the run, because he is gay. The werewolf senate has declared gays and omegas to be outlaws, and hunters make sure none survive. Rico doesn't agree with the plan, and once he has accepted that he will be a father, he deals with the situation really well.

If you like stories about werewolves who are passionate and will defend their mates to the death, if you enjoy books containing male pregnancy, and if you're looking for a paranormal read with a twist, then you will probably like this book.
