Book Blurb

Rogan Owens lives a life of secret misery. Three years ago, he lost his mate, who couldn't come out of the closet and acknowledge their bond. He's suffered in silence ever since, taking over as alpha of his mate's clan.

Rogan is overjoyed when he discovers Julian alive. He has so many questions. Where has Julian been? What are the long scars on his body? Most importantly, why is Julian running away from him?

Rogan finally comes to accept that his mate will never want him, only to have Julian decide it's time to come home.

But someone else doesn't want Julian and Rogan reunited, even if it means Julian's death for real this time. Between keeping each other safe and trying to solve the mystery of who wants Julian dead, they barely have time to learn to love each other. Will what they feel for each other make them stronger or be their downfall?

Book Review

I really liked this book. The depth of despair both Rogan and Julian went through was described so well, I was with them every step of the way. The story of misunderstandings, mistreatment and the pure meanness the villain adds to it all was heartbreaking. Both of them only want to protect the other, and it takes them forever (or at least it felt that way to me) to figure out that they are stronger together than they are apart. Their love and the bond they share only makes everything even more intense.

Rogan has gone through hell, nit just because he lost his mate, but because he was never able to admit who Julian was to him, he was never able to openly grieve. To make matters worse, he can’t let anyone know what was going on between them, and has been made alpha of his pack, replacing Julian. What could be worse?

Julian hasn’t had it easy either, and when he finally returns, old and new enemies pop out of te woodwork and do their best to keep them apart. Interestingly, he still feels drawn to Rogan, but the situation is beyond complicated.

If you like shifter stories, angst, and seeing love win out in the end, you will probably like this book.
