Ethan Brown finds his mate, Jace Dominick, at the local bar. They go back to Ethan's place to cement their mating. The next day, Jace is missing. Ethan is beside himself, and when he finally finds Jace, the man swears his name is JD and he doesn't know Ethan.
Six weeks later, Jace is back. He's ready to have Ethan for his mate. Jace and Ethan try to make a go of things but that's hard to do when their insecurities get in the way. Jace feels guilty about what he did to Ethan and treats him like glass. Ethan thinks Jace is there out of guilt and he's afraid to ask for more.
But when danger comes, can they overcome their personal issues to save each other?
Love is definitely in the air. From the moment Ethan and Jace meet anyone within the same area of these two would be able to tell. As soon as Ethan laid his eyes on mouth watering Jace he knew his fate was sealed for all eternity. What he had not expected was for Jace to disappear to only reappear later and act like they did not share the best night of both of their lives together. Don’t worry though, Jace quickly realizes he cannot spend another moment without the only person truly meant for him.
This story has you enthralled from the very beginning. The author makes sure the plot snatches you up in the very beginning and doesn’t let you go until the end. By then you do not want to be freed. Her description of not only what is taking place but the emotions involved make you feel like you have a front row seat in the room with the characters. You know you should not be sympathetic toward Jace for the way he treats Ethan, but the author makes it so you have no other choice. And if you cannot help feeling for Jace you know Ethan cannot either. Jace has all the qualities that any man or woman would want in a partner. When these two collide the shear passion of them ignite the air with electricity.
I do have to mention the only reason I'm unable to rate this book higher is because there are a few editing errors. While not enough to seriously detract from the story, there were enough for me to mention.
I really enjoyed the way the author took the typical werewolves/shifter story and added her own spin to it. Usually when reading these types of books I can pick what influenced the author’s plotline whether it be a movie or another author. I can actually say I did not see that here, which I have not been able to say in a long time. The author's plot is genuinely her own brain at work. Let me tell you it was great work.
This is the first of the Wolf Creek Series I have read. And I most definitely plan on going back and getting the others. So if you are looking for a werewolf story refreshingly different from the others you would enjoy this story.
