Book Review

The story title made me smile; "dead cow pants" as a description is something I suspected a vegetarian might come up with. The fact that is turns out to be a werewolf made me laugh. Shay is the one who has an issue - with being a werewolf, obeying pack law, and, apparently, with wearing leather pants.


Shay has tried to run away to get rid of his problems, only to discover that it made everything worse. It isn’t easy to come back to the pack, and thing between him and his best friend Shay are a bit strained for a while, but once he figured it out – wow! One very hot claiming scene later, everything has changed for Shay.


Darius is ecstatic that Shay is back, but can’t believe the man still doesn’t get how much they belong together. He decides to be patient just a little longer, and this pays off once Shay gets with the program. Yes, the claiming is hot, and the fact that Darius has waited for Shay is romantic and adds just a touch of emotion to the scene.


If you like stories about werewolves , enjoy a bit of drama with one partner returning from trying to make I on his own, and if you're looking for a fast werewolf romance, give this one a try. I really liked the way these two interacted.
