Max is on the run, but is he running from his past, or toward his future? Only Ulf knows…
Werewolf Max knows desiring males is wrong, but he can’t help himself. When his pack nearly kills him in an attempt to cleanse him, Max runs. Jumping on his motorcycle, he heads north.
Ulf has lived on his own in the wilds of Northern Ontario for a long time. When he catches the scent of a stranger in his territory, he’s angry at first, until he realizes that Max is more than just another werewolf. They’re mates.
Ulf must make Max believe that two males can be mates, but just as he’s about to succeed, Max’s past catches up with him. Will the home they’ve been hoping to build together be lost for good?
I really didn’t know what I was getting into when I started with this book, it was out of my comfort zone and probably the reason I agreed to it.
I liked the werewolf society that we were giving glimpses of in this book, it was really thought out about their eating patterns and where they’re situated ruling how they function. The author did a really good job with that aspect of it.
Where the book fails is in description and a good edit. I really really wanted to get into this book and like it and like the characters, but there wasn’t enough meat for me to do so. Do you get me? I wanted to like Max and Ulf but I don’t even know if we ever got a good facial description of either of them. We just get reminded that their bodies were ‘sexy’ or ‘handsome’. Characters are what readers end up loving, not what happens to them. I wanted to picture them, picture their eyes or even be remotely able to paint a picture in my mind of what was happening.
I like action sequences and fights, and I got super excited when it was building up to one, but it fell flat. It may be because the book was more aimed on their relationship, but if you’re going to put in a fight sequence I think it should have more of a punch and more time giving to it. I would love to have more time on it, and for blood and gun-fire and for the two to limp back home, but it was just…it happened…they’re home. voila!
There was also quiet a lot of typos…my biggest pet-peeve, the minute one pops up I struggle with reading the rest of it.
If you can oversee all that I’ve pointed out, then it’s a good book to pass the time as it’s a quick read [took me just under 2 hours], with a lot of steamy sex scenes and for that purpose it’s thoroughly enjoyable.
About the Author:
Often referred to as “Space Cowboy” and “Gangsta of Love” while still striving for the moniker of “Maurice,” Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organizing his immense gourd collection and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs. While collecting vast amounts of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours between dropping the f-bomb and pursuing the kama sutra by channeling the long lost spirit of John Wayne and singing along with the soundtrack to “Chicago.”
A long-time writer of complicated haiku, currently Sean is attempting to learn the advanced arts of plate spinning and soap carving sex toys.
Barring any of that? He’ll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.
