Even when love is forbidden, it can’t be denied.
Davey is a loner and that suits him. His own company, whether in his dog body or human form, is his comfort zone. He’s never happier than when roaming his forest territory.
Until one day he finds himself trapped, injured and at the mercy of a huge mountain lion. There’s no way out—he’ll have to face what’s coming, jaws, claws and all.
But the big cat isn’t all he seems and before Davey knows what’s happening the very real mating instinct has bitten him hard. But feline and canines are sworn enemies—they can’t be together. Or can they? Will the new lovers ever be able to reveal their secret to the Redwood Pack, or is it just too dangerous? Can their love conquer all?
First, I’d have to say this is not a standalone series of books. You must read each one in order to truly understand the overarching storyline of the Redwood Pack. This is a continuation of the story line from ‘Finding You’ were one of the Alpha’s mates, Julie, was taken. Although it doesn’t have much to do with it, there are parts of that story still mentioned.
I definitely connected with Davey much more in this story than I did with the characters of the previous one. He’s the loner of the pack but fiercely loyal to his Alpha and pack. A pack he thinks of as family. What I loved about him most was the way he processed events. He struggled with what he felt was his failure in helping find Julie, but in that, he found something else. A mate. But he never faltered on the realization that he was gay it was more that his destined mate was a mountain lion shifter. He knew things weren’t going to be easy.
I wish we got a more in depth feel of his mate Lawson but since the story is told entirely from Davey’s point of view and it was a novella that didn’t happen. The story would’ve been better for it, but really it’s the curse of the shorter stories...never enough in them. Overall Lily’s writing is good, and the pacing fit the story, and I definitely felt invested in his happily ever after.
