First there were the Lost Shifters; now there are the Wayne County Wolves.

Ever since his old pack had given up their criminal ways and joined the Wayne County Wolves, Ervin's been depressed. Not only is his new pack completely goody two-shoes, it's also sadly lacking gay members. So Ervin has little hope of ever finding his mate. But just when he least expects it, he finds

This really does not bear scrutiny. Not only because of the whiplash-inducing speed at which love apparently happens, but incongruities in what supposedly happens.
For example Ervin only knew about Miles’ brother, and in the time since Miles’ woke up he mentioned his siblings and may even have mentioned his parents while getting dressed between perspective shifts, but obviously there has been no time for Ervin to discuss with his alpha to go looking for the parents.

The entire thing was more than

I love Mrs. Hecht's shifter world. This one was a bit rushed, but still very sweet. Hoping for Braxton's story...with Nico, if possible :D

This is the first book in a new series for this author and although the ground work was done in her "Lost Shifter" series, there is a lot of potential as I've always wondered about Chris's pack and I hope to learn the differences between being part of the pack vs being part of the cat coalition.

The story between Ervin and his half wolf/half human mate Miles, although very similar to a lot of stories available on the market was pretty good. The characters, though stereotypical were well rounded
Before reading this book, I think you need to have read the previous series because there was a lot of assumed knowledge that the reader was familiar with certain aspects of the world (by the author) ... because I didn't have this prior knowledge, my enjoyment of the story was diminished. Aside from that, I found the story a bit too rushed & shallow for true enjoyment ... the insta-love was another turn off for me too. If you had read & loved the previous series, this book might appeal m ...more

This is a new series and for being a first book it should be longer and better developed. Definitely not as boring as this. What I read here was plain, undeveloped, and the main emotions of love were not real.
I'm disappointing! I guess even a writer can burn out.

I felt it was too short, but I still enjoyed it. I finally feel that the author is starting to shift towards the quality of her earlier works (which works for me).

Don't expect a long story, because this author will give you only a few pages of enjoyment.
I would love to read a sequel about Nico, and if he is Braxton's Mate, that would really made my day.

First in this series was a good start, but as usual it felt a bit rushed and I hope they get a bit more in depth as the series continues.
I love Stephani Hecht’s books. They give me a sweet escape from my everyday life while I read them. They are definitely a guilty pleasure for me and I’m glad she’s starting a new series. Since the blurb does an outstanding job at describing the book, I won’t rehash it. Instead I’ll write about what I liked and disliked about this book.

I really enjoyed meeting the characters in this story. I thought both Miles and Ervin were interesting and likeable people and I enjoyed reading about them. I also

I have a special affinity for shifter series, they were my first introduction into reading MM stories. At the time, I didn’t know there was anything better out there to read, and I devoured several in a row, each book hooking me onto characters for the next several books. So reading them during tax time (where I work) seemed like a no brainer-something to read, but nothing too demanding of my attention. Problem is, reading these stories is a lot less satisfying than it used to be. I’m a lot more ...more

So this is the first series of Cassie and Chris' wolf pack. I was really happy that we would move towards the wolves (though the Feline Coalition will always be my favorite!). Unfortunately I wasn't blown away by Miles and Ervin's story.

The positives
I liked that we got more into rogue wolves and how dangerous they are normally considered
I liked that the characters didn't fall into bed in the first chapter
Due to above we really get a chance to get to know the two heroes
It's a Hecht book I love t

I think this is a creative solution to keeping the awesome world of the Lost Shifters going yet making sure that it doesn't get too complicated. The characters in this novel are connected to those in the Lost Shifters series yet they are also stand alone. You don't have to read the other series to understand this book, but I would highly recommend it in order to get the most out of this book. I can't wait to see what happens and I'm rooting for Nico and Braxton to get together (just saying, Nico ...more

Full Review:

Within a short framework, a great story and quick read evolves. I enjoyed the snark between the characters in the story and how taking care of Miles and his family made Ervin finally appreciate what he has. Although there is plenty of explanation so that anyone could read this story alone, if you have read the Lost Shifters series first, many characters are mentioned or appear whose stories were told before, allowing a fuller picture of the wo

OK...short is good...I am short and the series goes faster when you know that you can read a story in a "short" amount of time!!!! I find myself going back to see where and when I was first introduced to the different MC's in the first series...then I go "ahhhhhhhh" when I figure it out! At times like this I wish I had a normal memory! Oh well....such is life! Looking forward to the rest of this series!!!

I too wish the story had been a little longer, but I enjoyed Ervin and Miles together and getting to know a few of the others in Chris and Cassie's pack of Wayne County Wolves. I hope we hear more about Nico and/or Braxton in the future.

As a side note, I enjoyed Mile's comments about his brother Dawson's fascination with the Finding Bigfoot show. My son and I are also fans and have been known to practice our own Bigfoot calls from time to time, much to the chagrin of our family :)

I've been wanting to read this series, but I kept holding off because I didn't want to walk into the middle of a series even though it's the first one. It's intertwined with The Lost Shifter series and I am glad I waited.

Ervin and Miles :) I liked these two. Especially Miles and his protectiveness over his family.

This is the first in a new series, Wayne County Wolves, by Stephani Hecht. It's set in the same world as The Lost Shifters series. I thought this was a good introduction to the Wayne County pack and that it provided a solid footing for future stories.

Not much setup and world building for this being the first book of a new series. Not a stand alone book - need to read the Lost Shifters series.

Too short - no relationship development even for mated instant love. Plot/logic discrepancies too.

So excited to see a new series that's a spin off from her Lost Shifters series, which I love. Great first book. I really liked how it was plot and character driven and the sex was at the end. Looking forward to more!

First thing I've read of this author. Feels like some prior knowledge to this world would have helped. The story felt rushed in my opinion and there isn't space given to develope the relationship in the main pairing.

Good setup for a new series. Main characters have fun chemistry.
2.5 stars. Eh, it was okay. I was more interested in all the backstory than Ervin and Miles' story, tbh, so I'm going to hunt that down before I go any further.
I liked it but felt it could have been a bit longer.
