Jasper Jenkins was a solitary Gargoyle, feeling like he didn’t truly belong to a clan, until he moved to New Atlanta and joined the Stone Society. Now that he’s finally settling in, his past has reared its evil Gargoyle head and is targeting those around him, including the quirky M.E.’s assistant who happens to be his mate.
Trevor McKenzie’s life is no stranger to heartache and loneliness. His insecurities began when he found out he was cloned just in case his brother needed spare parts. As danger closes in, his boss confides in him that the “badass club” of gorgeous men he is surrounded by is really a Clan of Gargoyles. When he finds out he’s the chosen mate of the man he considers his best friend, the most gorgeous of the badasses, his insecurities multiply. Trevor must decide if he can trust the love being offered him is real and not just a product of the mate bond.
Reaching back to his warrior roots, Jasper will stop at nothing to protect his mate as well as his Clan.
Warning: This book contains a relationship between a very male Gargoyle and a very male human.
I was psyched when I found this series of gargoyle books! It starts with an M/F book but several books in there is an M/M and later another couple of them. I started the M/F but couldn’t really get into it – which isn’t surprising as it takes a lot for me to read M/F anymore – but what was surprising was how difficult it was for me to make it through this story.
First, I was frustrated by the fact that these guys are Mates – like fated mates – but Jasper was able to resist his guy for a long time and it didn’t seem to be a big deal.
Second, the “big reveal” of the paranormal world was pretty lack luster – and that’s always one of my favorite parts.
Third, it took FOREVER for the couple to be a couple – like 75% of the book – and by the time they do get together I was pretty over it.
There is a LOT of stuff going on and TONS of characters and perhaps if I’d been a big fan and had read all the stories before this I’d have appreciated this one more – but I didn’t so I couldn’t and there you have it.
