Two very different men with a tumultuous history must overcome challenges from all sides and see past their society's rules to realize they are destined for one another.
Raised to become Alpha of the Yafenack pack, Samuel Goodwin dedicates his life to studying shifter laws, strengthening his body, and learning from his father. But despite his best efforts, Samuel can’t relate to people, including those he's supposed to lead.
When Samuel meets Korban Keller, the son of a neighboring pack's Alpha, he reacts with emotion instead of intellect for the first time in his life. Resenting the other shifter for throwing him off-balance, Samuel first tries to intimidate Korban and then desperately avoids him. What he can't do is forget Korban's warm eyes, easy smile, and happy personality.
When a battle between their fathers ends tragically, Samuel struggles to lead his pack while Korban works to break through Samuel’s emotional barriers. Two very different men with a tumultuous history must overcome challenges from all sides and see past their society’s rules to realize they are destined for one another.
The first thing I hated about him was his smile. Nobody genuinely smiles that much. It’s fake. I don’t trust fake people; they tend to hide things. And Korban Keller was as fake as they came.
He was older than me. Not by much, just a few years. With our packs being relatively close in proximity, I had seen him a handful of times when we were boys.
My clearest memory of him back then was of his eyes—they were a rich navy, the color of the deepest part of the ocean. He had a weird habit of tracking me with those eyes, and I wondered if it was because he planned to attack me or if he was waiting to catch me making a mistake so he could call me out on it in front of everybody.

Cardeno C. Definitely knows how to write a story that captivates you from page one and keeps you enthralled till the last page. The scenes are vividly detailed and characters are well-developed.
I thought this story was brilliant...This story has everything you could want in a shifter story: action, conflict, power struggles, confusion and danger, but it also has the warm fuzzies of true love, understanding, forgiveness and making things right. ...I recommend this to those who love shifters, difficult times, trusting your feelings, overcoming danger, accepting love, hot sex and a great ending.
everything about this story is nothing but absolute bliss. ....This couple was a joy to read about. ....This is the kind of characters I LOVE to read about in a book!....This book was a very refreshing, inspiring and motivating M/M Paranormal Romance that will indeed leave a valuable lesson: true love is hard to find, hard to keep and hard to replace; but when we find it, it is in ourselves to fight for it tooth and nail in order to achieve that irreplaceable feeling that only an everlasting love can bring....Cardeno C has an extraordinary gift with words and you can notice this in the way the story flows so absolutely smoothly, becoming an enjoyable and easy read.
Stoic, socially awkward Samuel & sweet, understanding Korban? PERFECTION.
