Silas had always expected to find his fated mate early in life, like most pack leaders do. But as he nears his fortieth birthday, still single, he begins to accept that maybe he’s not meant to have a mate after all. When he finds an intruder in his territory, a young cop who smells human but also like everything he’s longed for, Silas can’t help but feel a spark of hope. Could this man be part shifter? Could he be Silas’s mate?
Cory’s conservative family believes shifters are evil, but when he meets Silas, he’s shocked by the pack leader’s gentleness and hit with feelings of desire beyond anything he’s ever experienced. All of Cory’s fantasies center around older men who take charge and take care of him, so when Silas asks if he needs a Daddy, all he can say is yes.
Torn between his family’s expectations and the pull he feels toward Silas, Cory knows he’ll have to give up his career if he follows his heart. Silas wants Cory, not fate, to decide if they should be together, so he fights his protective instincts. But an unexpected pregnancy forces their hands, and the two men have to figure out how to fit their lives together. And maybe have love at long last.
This was somewhat a sweet story with a few sharp edges.
Cory must investigate a case of a missing boy and when he’s looking for some evidence in a dark cave, he meets Silas, a shifter. He doesn’t understand his own body because he is drawn to Silas. Cory’s conservative family always told him shifters are evil and can play with your mind. They even think Silas’ pack is responsible for the missing boy.
Silas, who is head of the Trillium Pack, it stunned by his strong feelings for this much younger man. He never met him before... but ‘mine, claim’ is all he can think and feel.
He never thought he would find his mate. Only Cory is human... a human with an awful family.
As always, there are some pluses and minuses in a read for me. What I liked was the kind and friendly vibe in this story. The whole pack stood by each other through thick and thin.
The Daddy talk didn’t work for me. It missed the Daddy/boy dynamic. It felt more like a caring alpha with a devoted omega.
There are more pack members we meet, and because of that, the story was made more fundamental for a series.
It was a swiftly paced story and touched on a lot of things, all in a casual way and it stayed on the surface. For myself, I would have loved to have seen some more depth with characters, and development of circumstances and environments.
But if you love a light, rapid rate read with a prospect of continuation, this one is for you.
