With Simon being a bit of a shy bookworm, and Benji seeming a lot more forward than he turns out to be, the dynamics between them were cute, and I liked the way they carefully approached each other.
Simon is a student, and he spends the summer with his sister-in-law and his niece six months after his older brother died. The small town of Canmore in the Canadian Rockies is a great setting, but Simon is too shy to go exploring on his own. Luckily Benji, who works in the café close-by, is a little less hesitant and they begin to date after Benji sends Simon a vegan donut as welcome-to-town present. It was fun to watch Simon slowly emerge from his shell as he got to know Benji better.

They appear in the first three books as a happily mated, if somewhat mysterious, couple. At the end of the previous volume Scott is captured and left for dead before he is shot at. Apparently he has lost his memory, and is now as scared of the wolves and the pack as when he was first kidnapped. Tybalt is desperate to get him to remember, but will not force anything. As they gradually figure out how to live together, the both learn things about their relationship they didn’t know before, making this an emotional and tension-filled story.
Scott is one of three humans living with the pack in the forest, and he is told he was the first to make the move. Or rather the first human to have been kidnapped by a wolf desperate for his mate. The problem is that he can’t remember a thing, and everything, including his mate, scares him. This provide an interesting opportunity for him to assess why he is there (the draw toward his mate is irresistible), and to get used to his “new” life in a more gradual and less life-threatening way than the first time. When his memories eventually do begin to surface, I was fascinated to see the full extent of what ha happened to him.
Tybalt is close to losing his mind. He feels guilty for having let Scott suffer, and he wants him back as soon as possible. But since he wasn’t very nice the first time around (through ignorance only), he is even more determined to let Scott set the pace this time. It is an interesting exercise I restraint for him and his wolf, and the way he handles things tells Scott a lot about the kind of man he is. Giving up much of his wolf side is a small sacrifice to make when he knows his mate needs him, but it isn’t easy!
If you like your werewolves to be on the wild side, if lost memories and the way couples deal with them fascinate you, and if you’re looking for a read that is as emotional and hot as it is tension-filled, thn you will probably enjoy this novella.

There is something about shy bookworms realizing their potential that I really like, and with Emory North as main character going from painfully shy and hesitant to… finding his voice was wonderfully entertaining and emotionally satisfying. His very gruff and socially extremely adept temporary boss Bryce was a wonderful counterweight and made me laugh more than once. The story has great energy, flows really well, and is full of little moments I enjoyed. It is definitely one of the better office romances I have read to date.
Emory is a bookworm. He prefers not to deal with people, and he has a wonderful secret that doesn’t emerge until the very end, so I am not going to tell you what it is. Unfortunately his father is the well-known and powerful CEO of North Star Publishing, and he expects Emory to follow in his footsteps. Emory, being as shy as he is, has yet to find enough courage to speak up and tell his father he has no intention to go work for the family empire once he graduates. And since Emory has done nothing to inform his father about his plans, he ends up as a temporary PA replacement to the brash editor-in-chief of one of his father’s magazines. Emory has a whole lot of thinking and standing up to do if he wants to survive this.
Bryce has a reputation for sleeping with his PA’s – but only once. He has left a trail of “discarded” PAs behind him, but he couldn’t care less because he has a deadline for the next issue of ECLIPSE magazine. Two members of his team are missing, and his latest PA, as incompetent as the rest of them, has just left. And now he is saddled with what he thinks is the CEO’s spoiled son, who is so shy he can’t even complete a sentence. Nobody is more surprised than Bryce when things don’t quite turn out as he fears…
If you like a little – or a lot – of humor with your story, if an office romance between two very unlikely partners appeals, and if you’re looking for a fast-paced read that is as sweet and sexy as it is wonderfully fairy-tale-like, then you will probably enjoy this short story.

With William being a hunter and believing all wolves are demons, this is not an easy fit and the two men have to face more than one obstacle in their struggle to become mates.
William was captured and interrogated by Leo’s pack, and is shocked how much Jules seems to like staying with the wolves. He cannot deny that he is attracted to Leo, but is totally unsure about what to do. And when they just seem to be finding a new balance, hunters attack them while out fishing and William scrambles to save all of their lives.
Leo knows William is his mate, and even though he struggles with having fallen for a human, never mind a hunter, he cannot help himself. So when William seems to betray him at the first opportunity he is hurt. Not that it stops him from standing by his mate, whatever the consequences, but it makes things a lot more difficult.
If you like enemies having to deal with being mates, if two men who have to bridge a cultural gap between them if they ever want to become a couple sound interesting, and if you’re looking for a read that is full of emotional turmoil and tough action, then you will probably like this novella.
