After six years away from his pack, Emmitt realizes he has no idea what he wants from life. His parents want him to lead the pack, and the Elders expect him to further integrate his people into human society. His reluctance to take on the demanding responsibility of leadership has him dragging his feet to return home.

Finding his Mate changes everything. Michelle’s shy and beautiful and on the run. She needs somewhere to stay and someone to take care of her. Suddenly, responsibility doesn’t seem like such a burden to Emmitt. He’ll do whatever it takes to earn her trust and keep her safe…even from one of his own kind.

 

 

Emmitt is slotted to be the next leader of the pack. His parent’s wanted him to join the military so that he could learn to blend in with humans. He wanted to joint he military because he wanted to get away from it all. However, now that his time is served, he’s slowly making his way back home to face his future. However, during one of his stops, he comes across his mate at a small diner. She’s exhausted, and is leading two frightened boys into the diner. Something is clearly not right, and when he catches a pair of guys gearing up to kidnap her, he can no longer stand by and keep his distance. With nowhere safe to go, he helps her and her brothers escape and brings them back to his home. However, something has got the three of them severely spooked and it’s not just simply the near kidnapping.

Okay, I had planned to just read the one companion novel while I waited for the original series to become available at my library, but I just had to pick up Emmitt’s story. I honestly really like the simplistic writing from a werewolves perspective. They don’t think too much. They don’t have a lot going on. It’s pretty much down to the nitty gritty. While the story progression can be a bit chippy at times with little to no warning, I have grown accustomed to the writing style and rather enjoy the lack of filler between scenes. Not to mention, I think we get a more well-rounded story about the shifters when in their heads because they are always internally communicating with each other. I think if I were to read the human women’s POV’s, I would not fully understand the shifters or fully grasp everything that was going on.

Now, onto the story itself. I really enjoyed this one. Michelle has gone through a lot, and it’s clear that both her and her brother’s have lived a sheltered life. They are clearly in trouble and running from something. However, it becomes clear that their treatment was pretty awful when her younger brothers seem awed by being outside or going to a lake. These are things they’ve never seen or experienced and being witness to their reactions to their new life was both sad and heartwarming. It took a lot time for the trio to warm up with the shifters that they were staying with (even though they had no clue that they were bunking with werewolves). Watching all three of them slowly warm up and come out of their shells really showed how much they endured before their escape.

I don’t want to go into too much because it would ruin some of the climatic parts of the book, but what I can say is that this will not disappoint. I was not expecting the twists and turns that the author threw at us. If you are looking for a slow-building romance with a dose of suspense mixed in, then you should pick up this series. While my plan was to read the original series, I think I’m going to stick with the companion novels instead. I really like being inside the werewolves minds and getting all the behind-the-scene conversations they have telepathically.
