Dakota Amergan, beta of the Brac Pack, is sent on the hunt four states away by his alpha. As he scours the rough streets for a mystery man, he is approached in a dark alley by Blair, a male prostitute who begs to show him a good time.
Blair Weston, first abused by his father then kicked out of his home, survives on the streets by selling his body. But when he offers himself to a fiercely protective werewolf, he finds Dakota isn’t the typical john.
Dakota, anxious to keep his mate off the streets, will do anything to keep Blair close. But can Blair overcome his self-loathing and let the warmth of Dakota’s love remove the clouds of shame from his mind?
This is truly a story that will break your heart as you read it. You learn of all the trauma Blair has suffered in order to survive and protect his younger brother; it's more than one person should have to bear. Forced into a life of prostitution isn’t the ideal choice for Blair but he has no other option in order to survive. Trusting others isn’t his strong suit, so when he meets Dakota he’s skeptic of the other man's motives. It’s hard for him to believe when Dakota tells him they are mates and he is going to save Blair from his life of poverty.
Dakota is a three hundred and sixty-six year old werewolf who has waited his whole life to find his mate. Now that he has he isn’t letting him go no matter how damaged he is. Dakota is a very possessive man, especially of his mate. It’s in his nature to give Blair whatever he needs to heal in order to deal with his past.
This couple definitely goes through many ups and downs, but when obstacles are thrown at them they work together in order to deal with it.
I was impressed Ms. Hagen had the courage to write a story involving a character that has suffered child molestation and lived a life of prostitution. These are very taboo subjects, but she writes about how this man overcomes his terrible past to move forward for a better future.
Ms. Hagen has outdone herself once again with this addition to the Brac Pack. She writes about the pitfalls in life but also about how the love of a good person can help save you. If you’re looking for a story that will pull at your heartstrings, give Sunshine’s Savior a read.
