To bond with his destined mate, an Alpha wolf must look past what he sees and trust what he feels.
Bonded by their parents before they were conceived, wolf shifters Abel and Kai adored each other since they were children. As teens, the two future Alphas took the next step in their bonding process and vowed to remain true to one another until Kai came of age. But when tragedy struck, Abel felt betrayed and ran from Kai instead of completing their mating.
Abel never stops yearning for the man who was supposed to lead by his side and after years without contact, Kai returns, broken and on death's door. If Abel wants to fulfill their destiny and merge their packs, he'll need to look past what he saw and trust his heart.
I’d been Alpha of my pack for three years and I still hated it. Well, hate might be a little strong, but I surely didn’t enjoy it. What was there to enjoy? Settling arguments and conflicts between grown people who acted like children? Ensuring our territory remained protected from potential threats no matter the hour of day or night? Blessing the unions of dozens of couples and officiating ceremonies naming their children and accepting them into the pack, never to have the chance of experiencing that joy for myself?
But no matter how I felt about it, the duty was mine. I’d been born and raised for it. My father, his father before him, and so on and so forth as far back in our family tree as anyone could recall. We were Alphas of the Nasa River pack, so named after our line. A Nasa formed the…
All of Me by Cardeno C has all the elements I adore in a book, MM and werewolves. I love the blend of a heart wrenching story that makes me want more. Abel is pining for his mate Kai when we meet him. He thinks his mate has betrayed him little does he know what his mate has given up to have his own family stay safe. Both of these men by themselves are strong but together they are invincible.
Review: I am not normally a huge fan of the short story, but I think Cardeno C. has absolutely nailed it with All of Me...I simply love good second chance love stories, and this was a fabulous example of one. Not only is the love these two share palpable, but it was enduring and beautiful. I can't recommend this one enough.
I liked that Abel was both tough and could be caring and sensitive to Kai's needs. Their desire and eventual claiming was electric. I also enjoyed seeing Kai given the chance to take back his power and soar as an alpha for the first time. The devotion and bond these two had and fortified was a joy to read.
Beans: I really loved the premise of this story and it was beautifully written. Abel is a bit of an ass and Kai is so wounded it breaks your heart. I loved Kai's sister in this and I think Abel needed to grovel for years but Kai has such a forgiving heart and just wants his mate, his friend. ...Highly recommend!Nina: I enjoyed every minute of it. This is a story of both young love and love that endures for a lifetime....These men will steal your heart and have you begging for more. ...If for some reason you haven't already read this delightful little novella, you really must immediately purchase it and immerse yourself in all of the love, sweetness, passion, drama, and beauty that Cardeno C delivers to us once again.
