Weretiger Dare longs for the attention of Steven. But the werewolf is searching for a mate among his own kind. Until Anthony douses his friend in a batch of catnip and the big kitty pounces. Book Four in the Moon Pack series. m/m sexual situations.
When Steven’s meddling best friend decides he needs to get serious about finding a mate, he wasn’t prepared to be tackled by a formerly hot and sexy bartender now, as a four hundred pound weretiger, holding him down. Thankfully Steven recognizes that all his running from fate has to stop when faced with his no longer patient mate.
In this hilariously funny introduction to the fourth book of the Moon Pack series, Tony decides his best friend Steven needs to stop screwing around with every male wolf in the club and instead to get serious about finding a mate. Dare, the weretiger bartender at the club, has been in love with Steven for some time but Steven only wants another wolf. So with a little catnip sprinkled liberally over Steven, Dare looses his tiger then drags the sexy wolf off to his lair.
Steven and Dare are both sexy and charming men as they negotiate their relationship and new mate status. Dare certainly is not going to indulge Steven in his slutting ways but Steven shapes up pretty quickly when faced with the mate he’d long denied. Although Dare’s forgiveness is a bit quick in coming considering Steven’s neglect, in this world mates are committed and usually monogamous so it’s clear Steven won’t be continuing his previous behavior.
Although the author continues with the thread from previous books regarding threats from another pack, there is enough explanation and background offered to easily pick up the series if this is the first book you read. As always, reading the series in order does help with the story progression and character development.
Thankfully the author went back to her previous tight and solid writing that had been lacking in the prior book and, although editing errors existed, there were only a few. From the humorous men and steamy sex to brief scenes with recurring characters, this was a very enjoyable and fun read from start to finish. I’m glad I didn’t give up on this series and eagerly await the next book from the intriguing and sexy Moon Pack.
