Laid-back Loco Remeere lets Cecil, the Alpha’s mate, talk him into helping with a harebrained scheme, but this time Cecil’s adventure leads him right to his own mate.
Tangee Highland works two jobs to survive, and dating is just a far-off fantasy. Rushing in late as usual for his job at a tattoo parlor, he stops dead at the sight of a gorgeous silver-haired man who attracts him like no other. Tangee quickly indulges his desire for silver-haired Loco’s touch, but mating for life is a bit extreme for a first date. He denies Loco, insisting the relationship move slowly.
Everything changes when Tangee’s mother is in an auto accident and the responsibility of his five-year-old sister now lies with him. Will Loco still want him with a kid sister on his hip? Or has Tangee already voided the claiming?
Loco and Tangee’s story is a refreshingly different addition to this series, packed full of emotions and heartfelt story lines that will have the reader invested in these character lives long after the story ends.
Tangee is a man who has never fit in anywhere and keeps to himself. He’s a character that is easy to identify with in that he works two jobs to make ends meet, helps support his family, and has no time for a social life. Tangee also has a secret he keeps hidden from the world around him. He’s extremely forgetful and while stumbling in late to work one night he meets a man who could possible answer all his questions and give him a better life. Being knocked down his whole life he isn’t sure he can trust the silver hair stranger who seems too good to be true.
Loco is more than excited to finally find his mate but he isn’t sure how to accept his mate's overcautious attitude. Loco is a protector and very possessive, so him being paired with such an independent man is comical. Loco can respect that Tangee wants to pay his own way, but the area Tangee lives is, in Locos opinion, very dangerous. It's sweet that all Loco wants to do is take care of Tangee and take all the hurt and pain from his life.
Circumstances change for this couple after Tangee is assaulted one night. Loco inadvertently gets what he wants, Tangee living with him. Tangee moving in with Loco is only a little bit of this story. The story takes off after he moves in and opens up more doors to future stories in this series. The introduction of a young female child adds a refreshing spin to these fierce werewolf protectors. We also get tidbits on the Eastern Pack that neighbors the Brac Pack.
Ms. Hagen has really outdone herself with Loco’s Love. This is one story that is a roller coaster ride of emotions not just for the reader but the characters as well. Also the love scenes between Loco and Tangee are very erotic and imaginative, never a dull moment between these two men. Loco’s Love is a must read. Grab a copy of your own. You’ll be glad you did.
