Hansen is the alpha of a stray cat shifter pack. As such he takes his responsibility seriously due to his own insecurities and his past when his father was an alpha of his prior pack. What Hansen doesn’t count on is his feelings toward the runt of the pack Nevel who can never seem to stay out of trouble. Will he face his feelings and mate Nevel or forever ignore what could be true love due to perceived duty?
While this is a fairly short novella I found that not only was the world well described and the background story fleshed out, but that the characters were immediately engaging. You quickly fall in love with not just Hansen and Nevel, but the rest of the rag-tag stray pack whom are not only cat shifters but also hockey players. Nevel is a fun character who snags the eye and heart of Hansen by being a difficult runt that refuses to go down without a fight! There is only one actual sex scene in this book. The one scene is highly erotic and worth the wait! The writing is well done; the build up to the HEA is exciting and makes the story difficult to put down. I believe this is the beginning of a series (or hope) and can’t wait to see what the other stories have to offer as the other characters are compelling and I want to see more of Nevel and Hansen!
