One bad decision can change your life forever.
It’s midnight in Berlin, and drifter Leon is hitchhiking home in the rain, covered in feathers after a wild festival in the city park. He can’t believe his luck when he’s picked up by a hot guy in a Porsche. That is, until he learns his driver is a creature from his worst nightmares—and plans to turn him into one too. He runs, but he can’t escape the werewolf’s bite.
Christoph made one mistake, but he’s paying for it plenty. He took Leon for a rogue werewolf on his way home from a hunt, and by the time he realizes the truth, it’s too late to do anything but make Leon a monster to save his life. That doesn’t save Christoph from the pack leader’s harsh punishment.
As Leon struggles to cope with his horrifying new reality—and his mixed feelings for the man who bit him—he’s desperate to discover not only what’s happened to Christoph, but the secrets their pack leader is hiding from them all.
Secrets the pack will kill to protect.

Review

Leon has been enjoying his time in Berlin but the latest guy that he had his eye on turns out to play for the other team. So, he decides to try his luck and hitch a ride home. Leon thinks that he has hit the jackpot when Christoph stops and gives him a ride, but things are not as they seem. Christopher is more than a man and thinks that Leon is the same. When he realizes his mistake, he tries to right it the only way he can think of. Hoping it will save Leon’s life and that somehow Leon will forgive him.

Leon and Christoph’s story is an interesting tale. The author intertwines romance and angst together as the men figure out just where their lives will go from here. The two make a nice couple and work well together. Each man has his own demons to work through but together they fight a common enemy. I did not feel a lot of depth with the characters and has a hard time immersing myself in their story. The story has some twists to it that kept me interested but the ending fell flat for me. I did enjoy the quiet times between Leon and Christoph as they continued on their journey. As each one learns about the other a bond begins to form between the men. They soon learn that life is what you make of it even if you have to fight for it.
