However, I persevered and I'm pleased that I did. I totally liked Randy, he was a lovely character and his interactions with Vaughn's younger children were really sweet. Vaughn, however, took longer to warm up to. He was a total jerk for a large part of the book, totally condescending and judgemental. Eventually though, it became apparent why he'd acted the way he did and I forgave him. I must admit though that I would have liked the explanation for his behaviour much earlier in the book and for him to have grovelled a little to Randy.
In conclusion, a good start to a new series. The writing was good, as was the world building. The author's descriptive writing was also very good, quite beautiful. I liked the characters and the subplot made for a different read. It was an interesting take on the whole shifter theme and I will read the next book. I would've liked more aspects of the book to be better explained, however, I am assuming that this will come as the series develops. By the way, the book is very low on angst and there is, eventually, a HEA.

I kind of predicted who Randy’s beautiful wolf was but that didn’t stop me from screaming like a fan girl when it was finally revealed. And don't get me wrong I’m happy for whoever Randy choose to have but I kind of, you know…rooted for Lyle. He has a sweet and innocent approach.
Arius: Arius is a minor character in the book but he made a big impact on me. I've mentioned this a lot before, I’m not against it, but I'm not really into reading about vampires, but somehow Arius just seems so adorable. I wouldn’t mind reading another story with him as the main character.
Anyway, I don’t have more to say about the book other than this was a wonderful M/M book or that it was a satisfying read. But I did wish that the story was a bit longer, still I’m happy that I bought it.
Now allow me to end this review with some of my favorite quote from the book:
“We all get scared. The thing is, you can only run from things for so long. Eventually you have to stand up and fight for the things you've told yourself are yours."
I wish my own parents had said this to me before, not that I haven’t fight for what I want but hearing this words would prove how much you meant to them. You know… *sniff*
"Wolf, Arius. And not just any wolf, but a werewolf. Calling him a dog is kind of like calling you an overgrown mosquito."
I feel sorry for Arius but this part sends me to laughing pit, making my sore throat and dizziness from the cold worse, but laughing was really the best medicine because I felt better afterward.
The expected conflict between the normal and paranormal worlds is present, but Henley also adds an interesting interpersonal additional conflict that is a unique spin in what I have seen in the genre. This helps to elevates what might have been a pretty standard story into something memorable.
Unfortunately, at times the prose could be somewhat overly-florid. This was forgivable, but there were some other flaws that jumped out as well, including a scene that very obviously exists primarily to set up the rest of the series. Also, it would have been nice to know more of Vaughn's backstory. Despite these things, though, I found this to be a quick, enjoyable, and engaging read.
I felt that even though Randy was not aware of the differences that he and Vaughn had that he was still drawn to him and could not shake that they was meant to be together. I also felt that even though Randy had no clue what so ever who the wolf was, he was drawn to him and knew that the wolf would not hurt him.
As far as Vaughn is concerned I felt that even though he had such an extreme pull to be with Randy he was trying to not only protect Randy but also his family at the same time and that was the reason for constantly trying to push Randy away.
Even when the truth came out about all the secrets, I don't feel it was enough to make Randy leave for good because if he was so determined to not see Vaughn and his family again he would have sold the place instead of constantly questioning if it was the right thing to do. I think he knew that deep down that they was meant to be a family and no matter what they could get through anything.
In my opinion this book is about the fact that even though we have secrets that sometimes might be better kept as secrets, secrets have a way of coming out and if you love someone it is better to be honest about them before they find out another way and it ruins what is building between the two of you.
I enjoyed this read and cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
