3.7 Stars - a good very short sequel to Paul & Simon's love story - thanks for that!

I really enjoyed the great and thrilling PNR novel Unacceptable Risk (4.3 stars from me). This is a 25 pages sequel shorty with more yummy stuff about these two newly bonded lovebirds.. - and in addition; Kaje Harper's stories are always quite amazing to read.

Hmm... This is a small story following the events of Unacceptable Risk and although I did think that more was needed to the story to resolve the problems between Simon and Paul, this story wasn't enough. It was just a few more pages that resolved nothing. Simon and Paul talked a bit about their problems and revealed a few stuff but no solution was given. I'm hoping things will be smoothed out in the next books.

This free short story (about 10,8K) featured Simon and Paul from Unacceptable Risk. It is advisable to that one reads that book first because some of the things here will make more sense...

I love this ... I'm a sucker for established relationship, especially when the couple is dealing with issues by TALKING.

Here, we dig a bit deeper on Paul's discomfort with the violence within werewolf pack -- how easy for pack to kill or how big the power of an Alpha is. I love that he addresses his concer

A very nice short followup to Unacceptable Risk. I was happy to see this little short because I wasn't ready to put these guys down yet!

Starting exactly where Unacceptable Risk left off, this short story deals mainly with Paul and Simon coming to terms with the events from the last two days, so don’t try to read this as a standalone because it contains major spoilers for book one, for that reason alone its hard to do a non spoiler review so sorry, this won’t be a long in-depth one.

The person who is struggling most is Paul. As a human he finds it hard to understand the pack mentality and he’s still not sure that the d

Unsettled Interlude is right! Reads like the missing epilogue from Unacceptable Risk, it's the morning after the events of the first book and this sets up a bit of what'll be happening in the second book of the series: (view spoiler).

It's probably best to read this one right after Unacceptable Risk, since it takes place directly after that story.
Paul is still coming to terms with being part of a pack, what that means for him, for Simon and for them as a couple.
I like that Simon is open and honest with Paul, doesn't try to make it easier or better than it really is, and he listens to Paul's concerns and takes them seriously.
There are also some lighter moments and since I've already read Aaron's story, I know how the k

This starts out where book 1 Unacceptable Risk leaves off. Newly bonded Paul and Simon are working out their relationship and the possibility of fallout from the other pack. Paul is trying to deal with his conflicting emotions and feelings from the last few days. The abrupt bonding is having is leaving Paul feeling unsure and uneasy. And Simon is trying to keep his fears for Paul's safety to himself.

my issue with this....too short! onto the next book! YAY!

Very good short story follow-up to Hidden Wolves 1 Unacceptable Risk. (And has the extra bonus of being free.)

Steer away if you haven’t read Unacceptable Risk since this story is set immediately after the events in that book. (And I don’t think things are easy to understand nor will you really feel for the characters without reading that book first.)

Here, Simon and Paul are adjusting to their post-mate-bond life, and the new pack. Although Paul loves Simon, he still has some r

I read this one a little out of order (after Unexpected Demands), and I was little sad seeing Paul and Simon so unsettled here after knowing how happy they eventually end up.

Love these two!
i loved seeing this couple again. I didnt plan to contuine this series but I would if these guys got another book.

This was a great little follow up from book one that really gave a bit more information on how they are settling into a relationship and dealing with all the changes. I really enjoyed it and it left me wanting to read more ... so on to book 2.
I loved the first book in this series, Unacceptable Risk, quite a lot, but I found this short follow up rather tedious. Paul whines a lot about the events that happened at the end of Unacceptable Risk and there was no steam at all to offset the whining. I really liked Paul in the first book and I get he's had to face a lot of reality shifts in a short period of time, but I really just wanted to give him a time out.

It's a short read, at least, so I would probably still recommend reading this one between the

This is a nice little companion piece to the first book. Paul and Simon are bonded, they're together, but not everything is smooth sailing. Paul has a lot to learn about the shifter world and it doesn't all jibe with his values. The balancing act these two are going to have to go through is only just beginning, but I like its start. :)

4.5 stars rounded up to 5 because of the ethical issues this tackles.

A short, but sweet, follow-up to book one, Paul and Simon are still feeling their way into their relationship. With an unconventional start, the bonded mates, one human, one wolf, have to establish trust without neglecting other things that will make them a happy couple and this story serves to remind them about all the issues.

Love this series!
Oh, lovely sequel to Unacceptable Risk.

It was wonderful coming back to these two men after having read Unacceptable Risk. Paul still struggles with what he had witnessed in the first book, and one has to wonder if this will cause problems between Paul and the pack. However, the love that is between Paul and Simon keeps growing stronger.

I love this Hidden Wolves 'verse, and anytime there is a new read in it, I'm going to grab it up with both hands!

It wraps up the first novel very well and sets up some of the issues for the second, but mostly it is simply a short, delicious read all by itself. I recommend reading it afterUnacceptable Risk so that it does not spoil any of the novel it helps wrap up.
Thank you, Kaje, for giving an extended glimpse into Simon and Paul right after the events of the meet. It was wonderful to see them continuing to work on their relationship and try to understand each other's perspective!

Love these guys.

Wow! Book one definitely left Paul and Simon on thin ice, but they were headed toward solid ground. This absolutely showcases how far they have to go. Paul is SO not ready for all the stuff involved in being part of a pack but he absolutely adores and loves Simon so he’s willing to work on it. He’s afraid of their moral compass but is beginning to understand their pull as well as their needs.

Simon, on the other hand, is all in with Paul and the pack, but he’s SO worried about the pot

Well, it certainly was an unsettled interlude, so.... aptly named. Also kinda unsatisfying and actually made me feel worse about the couple's future happiness, but oh well. It was free!

*sigh* Really not for me. I kind of want to give the series more space to win me over, but it looks like the sequel proper is still tied in with this pack. I'd have liked it more if it was about another pack, maybe with things handled slightly differently. Because I refuse to accept that every single group of sufficiently humanoid creatures acts exactly the same, particularly since they don't seem to have that much contact with one another so it's not like they can keep tabs on how each Alpha ha ...more

I admit that I'm not usually much for short stories in this genre, however this is almost more of an epilogue to Unacceptable Risk than a standalone story. I rated it highly because it addresses a lot of the concerns that I had at the end of that book, and in doing so made the story better as a whole. I definitely agree with one of the previous reviewers who commented on how good it is to see people work out relationship issues by, you know, talking about it. Finally, I also like tha

I am soooooooo glad I got to read this the day after I read Paul & Simon's story!!!! It was just a "little" something to tide us over til the next book...and also it clarified a few more things between these "very much" in love guys...who have NO CLUE how to handle a relationship...must less a marriage...but they are working on it!!! Very short and very sweet!!! I agree...Paul had better get his kittens!!!!
It was nice to follow-up with Paul and Simon after Unacceptable Risk, because while the ending was happy, there were still plenty of lose ends with respect to their relationship. Not much happened in this, but we got to see them deal with some of the issues that occurred as a result of things in the first book and get to see them work some stuff out.
