Danny loves Alaska, but it doesn’t seem to love him back. The full Wolf Moon sparkles over Fairbanks, but he’s alone for those long nights. He wants to come out of the closet and date, but his frail family might implode. All he wants is the right man in his bed.

Brandon and Justin are lovers and wolf shifters native to Alaska. They’re out to protect their way of life, and sometimes that means extreme measures. When Danny’s brother proposes aerial wolf hunting, Danny enters their sights. Danny was the closet case in high school, and now, he’ll be their sex toy. The shifter pair is ready to do whatever it takes to stop the hunting and maybe add a sexy human man to their pack.


I’m going to start by saying this book did not work for me.  It is fairly rare I read a book and do not really like it.  I will say it isn’t horrible, but just had a very flimsy plot line that didn’t work for me at all.  The story ends up being more about the sex than the story itself and the sex isn’t very well written either.

Danny has been forced to return to his home in Alaska after his father becomes ill.  Because of the attitude in Alaska and his family Danny believes it best to stay in the closet.  Unfortunately for Danny because of the small town atmosphere he can’t get laid either.  Justin and Brandon are well known to Danny.  Unknown to Danny is the fact that they are wolf shifters.  The two overhear Danny and his brother talking about hunting wolves from a helicopter and decide to take drastic action.

I didn’t buy that these two men would even hatch up this plot to kidnap, have sex with and blackmail Danny.  Hello, talking sooooo much easier!  I get that Justin has wanted Danny for a long time but still it really doesn’t sound like the most well thought out plan.  The rest of the story progresses from there.  We only get the bare outlines of these men’s past and how they even related to each other.  The story is short and not well thought out.  Just way to simple and easy at the end.
