Griff Matthews knew he looked like trouble but for a wolf shifter mechanic he was fairly laid back most of the time. Pleased that his Alpha was finally settled with his new mate, Griff longs to meet the man of his dreams. Little did he know he would find it that same evening, when he was too drunk to realize that his good looking hook-up was actually his mate. Problem is when he woke up sober his bed was empty.
Derrick “Diablo” Franklin was just looking for a hook up with a like minded shifter. The sexy cat shifter was deep undercover for the FBI and although his case was coming to an end, he had hopes for his career that didn’t involve finding a mate. However after meeting Griff Diablo realized his plans might have to change.
But nothing is easy for the two men as they battle the FBI, a crime lord from Baton Rouge and a host of contenders looking to take Diablo away from Griff. And just who is Angel Bandures?
Please note this is book two of the Cloverleah Pack series. It can be read as a standalone, but you will learn more about the characters and story line if you read book one, The Reluctant Wolf as well.
Warning: Some people may find the content of this book objectionable. Includes m/m, graphic sexual situations, a few BDSM elements (not related to actual sexual scenes), strong language and a wolf and a cat that are looking for their own happily ever after.
I love Griff and Diablo as a couple! They are so unique and have such a great partnership. One has the larger animal, the other the larger human. This gives them a unique perspective as a couple.
I have to admit, I really hate how Diablo was treated for the first half of the book , and re-reading it hurt my heart. But… I love how he finds his own and then some! – by the end of the book.
We get to see some of the pack dynamics as Kane acts in ways that aren’t perfect. But this is important because it’s this formation of the pack bonds that sets the tone for how this pack will behave in the future.
One of they dynamics I love about this couple is really well illustrated in the end, at the mating ceremony. Diablo and Griff are really equals and Diablo won’t just sit by to let the 60! –contenders fight for him. But then Griff has something to say about it … and so on. So much fun and sexy too!
I love the use of magic we see as well as the time the characters spend in their shifted forms and how that affects them in their human state. Look past the covers and into this series if you haven’t. I highly recommend it to shifter fans!
4.25 (rounded to 4.5) of 5 stars
I think this is a good way to enjoy this series. The narrator does a good job with giving everyone distinct voices and tries to convey the emotion or tension in the story very well. Recommended
