Some live on memories…

Almost dying during a pack uprising has a way of shaking things up. I’m no longer Mr. Laid Back now that there’s an itch under my skin I can’t scratch.

On a volunteer mission that goes beyond the walls of our compound, we enter the territory of a pack long thought dead, and find ourselves on the business end of their spears.

What I’m not prepared for is what I find within their walls—The one shifter I never thought I’d see alive, the one I’d mourned twice, the one I’d always loved. He is alive, and if I have anything to do with it, he’ll stay that way. But he’s got secrets, and exposing them could lead us to an enemy worse than the bloodthirsty undead shifters wanting to kill us all…

Basically everything about this book could be a spoiler including who Bay's mate is. So I am going to be vague and make this Spoiler Free. 

Bay, brother to the Alpha of the Silver Tip pack, has recently survived a traumatic ordeal and is still edgy and does not know why. He agrees to go on a mission to check out rumors about a pack that they thought was obliterated but may still have survivors.

But he never expected to find how own mate there. This other "Were" has been to hell and back, and has just been ins survivor mode. He is guarded, weak, still healing, and afraid. He is worried about his own lack of control, of his pull towards Bay.  He has been conditioned to believe certain things that mess with his mind and make him wary of trying to settle into a pack. He feels damaged, unworthy, and can't really picture a future. He has secrets that he hesitates to share. But he has a strong need to be with Bay even though he has so many doubts and insecurities.

Bay is strong, smart, stubborn,  opinionated, and he knows what he wants. He's tired of feeling loss, pain, and death. And this "Were" makes him feel whole and happy again, even if it makes him fearful when he can't seem to reach him and break down his walls. But he is willing to be supportive, patient, and understanding to help him heal. But he is also not afraid to challenge him and push him to want more. They have undeniable chemistry and a strong need both physically and emotionally. 

But the only way for this broken "Were" to truly heal is to face his past, set things right, and maybe exact some revenge. He will have to learn to trust himself and his partner, conquer his demons, and find his purpose in life. But none of it is easy and all comes with the risk of disappointment, loss, or physical harm.

This was fast-paced, engaging, and full to twists and surprises. It has danger, mystery, suspense, action, passion, and humor. I loved this couple and getting both of their points of view in alternating chunks. I could feel their pain, need, and their strong bond, but they were also struggling with significant challenges, secrets, and emotional distance. Some of the events I did not see coming and there were some definite nail biting situations. 

Even though I do not read many paranormal books anymore, I am hooked on these characters. The world building with the packs of werewolves, weres (hybrids), and deathly zombie-killing-machine-type-weres known as nowheres is intriguing and done well. I was glad to get more with Dare, Reese, Jude, G, Selene, Cati, Mav, Rua, and Vaughn. We also are introduced to some new and interesting characters along the way. I hope that there are more books coming in this series since there seemed to be a bit of a tease. I enjoy the closeness and bonds of the pack and sense of home and family they provide even in the ruthless world they live in. 

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Kim's review


We all have tragic backstories in today's world. 

I wake up chained to the wall of a dark cell aware of two things: I failed my sister, and I smell my enemy.

When I’m taken to meet Dare, the alpha of the Silver Tip pack, I’m sure I’m about to lose my throat. The last thing I expect is for the Alpha to recognize me as his fated mate. No way is he going to let me go now, and I still have to find a way to rescue my sister.

As I plot my escape to save her, I find that if I leave, Dare could be killed by power-hungry members of his pack. And now he’s more to me than my fated mate—my heart is involved. With time ticking by on my sister’s life, I have to make a choice I never thought I’d face—my sister’s life or my mate’s? That’s if I can survive the undead shifters intent on killing me first...
