A quiet life. A break from the dangers of being a cop. Yep, Lex Tompkins has his future all worked out. That is, until fate—or rather the stray toddler from the house across the street—bites those plans in the ass. Well, technically Lex’s neck. Suddenly, he’s transformed into the Alpha of the secret werewolf clan hiding in the perfect, out of the way neighborhood of Lex’s dreams.

Now Lex is the unlikely leader of a dysfunctional pack… except for Spencer Robinson, the one shifter Lex can’t seem to keep his paws off. Will Spencer be able to teach Lex how to embrace who he has truly become?

Because accidents happen…

…but fate marks its own territory.


Lex is recovering from a stabbing while he was a cop.  The department has put him on early retirement and disability because he is not in top shape anymore and the psychologist won’t clear him.  He wants to be away from people but his one neighbor has a lot of people over often.  Spencer is the neighbor and though Lex sees Spencer look at him once he believes Spencer isn’t his type.

I loved this book.  It isn’t for everyone.  It is a sweet easy read but it was fun.  Lex is “Mr. Grumpy”, anti-social but after he is bitten his whole life and attitude changes.  Spencer isn’t as well defined as character.  We get that he is hurt that Lex only came after him after he was turned.

My only real difficulty with the book was with the sudden turnaround in attitude by Lex.  I would say that it is all about his turning but it doesn’t quite cover it.  Still I enjoyed the story and characters a great deal.  Look forward to the next in the series.
