Dmitri’s character was an ass and wasn’t all-around consistant. First of all, his age of 42 doesn’t really jive with his background story nor his actions throughout the novel. He seems more like hot-head in his late 20s. I highly doubt a 42 year-old man would break into to someone’s house to try and beat them up because they essentially got rejected. Now, Adrian I can believe is 42; he seemed more of the adult out of the two. Dmitri was childish, mean and annoying.

Compared to other stories I've read from this author recently. This one wasn't too bad and I liked it considerably. There were aspects in the story I didn't like (treatment of Dmitri's brother by Dmitri, the disorder of the packs, Tomas coming off as a simpleton, etc.). I did like that this wasn't exactly an insta-love mate story. It was fun reading about Dmitri fighting the attraction to his mate. (view spoiler) ...more
There wasn't any emotional connection between the two heroes and in my opinion, the chemistry between them was lacking in many ways.

What made the book a one star for me was: I HATED the way the hero treated his brother, Tomas. Between constantly belittling him and the verbal abuse that constantly flowed from his mouth, I found that totally unacceptable. Ironically, Tomas was the only character I liked.

If you ignore the price tag this was a cute, light, quick read about destined mates and misunderstandings. It's only about 60 pages so there isn't that much of a plot line.

There is one steamy scene at the end and a small bit of world building. If this is the beginnings of a series, I'd be interested in reading it, though would love to know more about the characters, and maybe have a central theme to run through.

This book could have had promise but there just wasn't enough character development and plot development. It's a shifter story about Adrian, a playboy or wolf in this instance, and Demitri, who is hurt by Adrian's refusal to mate with him. They team up in order to save Demitri's idiot of a brother and then decide they want to be mates.

No emotional connection. Two unlikable MC's. Plot holes. Dull sex.

I'm not sure how I feel about this book. Dimitri was a bit too much for me and his feelings. But I did love Adrian and Tomas despite how everyone treated him..
