Synopsis

Sean Maddox has one basic goal: to protect the Northwest Pack. That priority helps him stay grounded—until the day the pack rescues Liam. Suddenly Sean is finding any excuse to be around the sweet, blind shifter. But trying to focus his thoughts on keeping Liam safe and not exploring the whole laundry list of carnal fantasies he’s been having is anything but grounding. It doesn’t help that Sean’s wolf makes it damn clear it believes Liam belongs to him.

From the first deep breath of Sean Maddox’s intoxicating scent, all Liam wants to do is strip naked for the sexy beta and let the wolf claim him. Hiding away his desires seems like the best plan, given after a lifetime in captivity Liam is just learning what it means to be free. What does he know about being a mate? More to the point, would Sean even want him if he knew the truth?

As Sean and Liam struggle with their growing craving for each other an old enemy steps out of the shadows. With secrets lurking and fate twisting two worlds together a sacrifice must be made, but can the two mates live with the consequences?

FourandHalfStars

This was a wonderful story of love and what people will do in the name of love, even if it’s misguided.
Liam and Cory are outsiders until they are rescued and brought in to Alpha Merek’s Northwest pack where Sean is a beta.
Liam has been experimented on for years. Because of those experiments, he was blinded and it also inhibits his ability to shift in to his animal self. When Liam is rescued, he falls quick and hard for Beta Sean. Liam holds a secret that he worries will make him unworthy of Sean’s affection. It also makes Liam vulnerable to the scientists (if you can call them that) who are still hunting him and the others who were rescued.
Sean is the Beta of the Northwest pack. He wants to protect everyone in the pack, however, when Liam is rescued, Sean has a hard time prioritizing the pack over Liam. The chemistry between these two was amazing – despite Liam’s handicaps, Sean knows what he wants, even if it doesn’t make sense.
Emma is a sweet, loving healer. She is keeping a secret herself and will have to trust that her bond with Liam is strong enough to withstand the trials and tests of their friendship.
I really enjoyed how Emma’s life was intertwined and how we were given a glimpse in to her story too. I would love to read more about her story.
The sex between Sean and Liam is hot – if not a little juvenile. There was definitely potential for very steamy, hot scenes, but I felt these were somewhat tame. I don’t know if this was because Liam was handicapped, but I hope not.
I do wish that there was different way to “watermark” the story – it was horribly distracting and made the story choppy to read.

Excerpt

“You don’t have to stay here with me,” Liam murmured.

Sean twisted the cap off Liam’s root beer and pressed the condensation-slick bottle to Liam’s hand until his slender fingers curled around it.

“I know,” he responded, studying a drop of moisture slipping off the bottle to make a damp trail along Liam’s hand.

“Guarding me?” After propping the bottle between his thighs, Liam licked the drop that had traveled to the pulsing blue vein of his wrist.

“I can be around you without being part of your protective detail.” Sean swallowed past his suddenly parched throat. The man had no idea how seductive his innocent movements were.

Liam reached out until his hand was on Sean’s thigh. “Just giving you a hard time.”

You have no idea.
