Poseidon, ancient Greek God of the Sea, ruler of earthquakes and once worshipped by thousands as a fertility god, was bored and that could be a dangerous thing for people around him. Deciding to visit his son, Nereus and friends at the Cloverleah pack, Poseidon causes his own brand of trouble, resulting in a night out at a club. All he wanted was a bed partner for a few hours. What he got was so much more.
Alpha Claude wanted nothing more than to rule his pack, care for his club members and take up the offer of a warm body when his urges got to strong. When Kane, Alpha of Cloverleah calls and says he wants to bring a special visitor, he was intrigued. But when a silver-haired god walks into his club, he knows his life is going to change. He just didn’t by realize how much.
Gods dropping in, visits from family and pesky secrets have a way of making things difficult. Fighting outside foes is easy, but the problems that flare between two very different men might be enough to scupper their mating before it has a chance to settle. Will they ever find their HEA or are the differences between a land creature and a god of the sea to big to overcome?
This is an M/M true mates book and as such comes with the obligatory warnings. While this is book two in the series and can be listened to as a stand-alone, listeners will have more of an understanding of secondary characters and off-book references if they have listened to book one and the Cloverleah Pack series, in particular, On The Brink.
I love that we get to see all the guys from Cloverleah and that Kane is still an overprotective jerk at times!
Poseidon is hard to like. He’s very selfish and doesn’t really have a lot going for him – despite being a god. Claude was suprsingly sweet, given his being an Alpha and BDSM club owner. (There is no BDSM in this book.)
There wasn’t much “new” to this story, it felt a bit like some of the others in the series, but it was still fun and sexy.
I definitely think these are best read in order, though, I suppose, it could be a standalone, but you’d be missing a lot of background.
For fans of the series, I recommend this. If you’re new to the author or this series, I wouldn’t start with this.
4 of 5 stars
John York is a solid performer and I really do appreciate having the same narrator for the entire series.
While he’ll never be my favorite narrator, I won’t ever avoid this narrator either. He’s easy enough to listen to and he really does do a solid job.
Overall 4 of 5 stars
