For most people, werewolves are creatures of fantasy, pulled from the pages of fiction novels and seen only in movies. For brothers Ethan, Dustin and Nick Parks, they become beings who are all too real… and the family tree is about to get a little furry.
* * *
Crewe Jackson’s been waiting patiently to claim his mate. Nine years ago both he and Ethan Parks were too young, but now he intends to give his sweet little nerd some lessons in love.
* * *
Chad Sutter has his hands full. Not only has his future mate, Dustin Parks, been accused of dealing drugs, he’s been hurt by someone he trusted. It’s up to Chad to straighten out the mess and prove to Dustin that it’ll take more than a little trouble to put out the growing flame between them.
* * *
Never show weakness. For two men, human Nick Parks and werewolf Lucas Devereau, it’s the creed they live by. Trouble is, just because something is hidden doesn’t mean it’s not there. With a little trust they may just discover in each other a mate who truly understands the heart and soul of an alpha.


“Midnight Howl”

This story was very familiar sounding.  The writing was ok.  I did like the characters, they were cute.  This was just not the most unique story.   The concept isn’t new the story line isn’t either.  I really wish there was more to like than it just being a cute and sweet story.  It is a nice story when you want something easy and sweet.

“Who Let the Wolf Out”

Again not the most unique story.  I thought this one was a little better.  I enjoyed the dynamics between the two men.  I liked the bit stronger characters and what happened between them.  Again I wish there were a little something more to the story and would be a nice read when you want something sweet and easy.

“Things That Go Grr”

This was a better overall.  The story line while not unique held my attention more.  I really liked the characters in this one.  I would have liked more depth in the story.  I also noticed some consistence errors.  It’s confusing for the first book to say can’t have kids until you mate and then have alpha have kids before meeting mate.  I think a sentence or two could have been added to explain it away but there wasn’t.  The conclusion to this little collection was cute but predictable.  I keep thinking I have read this before…I think when you can do that the story is a little too generic.  I still think it is a nice read for a comfort read.
