Wesley is alpha born. He should be the next Alpha of his pack when his uncle steps down. But he’s different from the rest of his pack. He has a scar on his abdomen that makes him an abomination to his pack. He finally finds out he’ll never be the alpha when his uncle makes a deal to ‘trade’ him to the Red River pack as a mate to Jobe, part of the alpha family there. This makes Wesley feel like little more than a whore. Jobe’s pack is isolated; they stick closer to Mother Nature making Jobe more spiritual and in touch with the world around him (almost hippie like, and yes I’m showing my age). He is actually an alpha, but he doesn’t have a scent so most wolves don’t know it. Meanwhile Jobe has some explaining to do about his lies of omission or making assumption about what Wesley knows. Also he needs to explain about the reasons his pack is so different from others packs.
I love this author’s stories. I read the first in this series, loved it, so I am excited to read this one. While good, I feel there is too much of an effort to make this shifter world different from the other, numerous, stories out there. There are too many things about Jobe’s pack that Wesley’s and other packs didn’t know about. Things, traditions or information lost by the other packs over the years. Then there is the convenient way that the scar on Wesley’s belly is not really a scar and Jobe’s explanation of it. There’s lots of miscommunication in this story. I did love both characters, both so different from each other. I don’t want to say too much and give things away what isn't in the blurb.
I really enjoyed Red River and shifter fans are going to love this series!
