Exiled by his pack as a teen, Omega wolf Simon Moorehead learns to bury his gentle nature in the interest of survival.

But instead of killing him, the Alpha takes Simon home.A man of action, Mitch Grant uproots his life to support his brother in leading the Blue Mountain pack. Mitch lives on the periphery, quietly protecting everyone, but always alone. A mate is a dream come true for Mitch, and he won’t let little things like Simon’s rejections, attacks, and insults get in their way. With patience, seduction, and genuine care, Mitch will ride out the storm while Simon slays his own ghosts and Mitch’s loneliness.

This is my first Cardeno book and I'm sure it won't be the last. I liked how the shifter part of the story was presented, very nicely done without seeming overworked. The story flowed nicely, although I may have skimmed over a few parts. There were some issues with this book for me, like Simon and his past. It is mentioned quite a bit but it never goes into detail and as much as it is mentioned, it also doesn't seem to affect him that much. It's kind of confusing in that sense.
It's not as much erotic as it romantic, which is kind of surprising for a M/M book. The connection they shared is sweet and sexy, although the actual sexual scenes are more towards the end. Simon's resistance and Mitch's fierce determination made this a great story read in one sitting.
A great beginner M/M paranormal book.
Cardeno C. – CC to friends – is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few “awwws” into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.
Cardeno’s Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, “You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day.”
