Format: Paperback
I purchased this book because I was intrigued by the blend of genres: Gay werewolves. Werewolves, well, maybe not...the werewolf aspect of these stories is really incidental, as there isn't a great deal of wolfing out happening here aside from standard machismo. These are not horrific monster stories, and it is obvious that they were not intended to be. These stories are so much more than that; actually, they are parables illustrating a great moral and spiritual depth. These are very human stories of desperate men trying to find their place in the world while dealing with some of the most difficult issues humans have to face: love, acceptance, family loyalty, societal prejudices, and the desire to be with one's own kind. The stories also expose some very serious themes and messages: trusting your instincts, managing and connecting with your inner beast, and what it feels like to live in a world and yet feel so alienated from it. All this is wonderful, and this is what a reader of serious literature expects to find amongst the words.

However, I do have some reservations...

The first two novellas in the book were well-written, well-constructed love stories. The sexual elements were hot, hot, hot, crossing the line into erotica in some places; although I did feel that the male characters were a little over-feminized. This is all good, but...this book suffers from very serious editorial flaws, which was surprising, since the editor's name is blazed across the spine of the book.

As a reader, I can forgive a few typos here and there, but this book is littered with them, not to mention the rather slap-dash book formatting and typesetting.

In the third novella, the technical issues were so severe I was unable to continue the story to its conclusion.

3 stories here by my favorite M/M writers, each one distinct from the other. Instinct by Jordane Lane (Soul Mate series fame) on Ethan, an abused werewolf, finding love with another of his kind is well written and sexy. The sex scene when they turned in the middle of their coupling is really sizzling hot and erotic. However I expected more from the ending. It is fine but I was looking for a closure between Ethan and Jake, the werewolf who converted and abused him. Maybe there is a sequel.

Son of a [b...] (no pun intended as this really literally means son of a female carnivorous animal) by Emily Veinglory is really good and has a most original plot. Here we have a group of outcasts, both gays and werewolves, finding each other and making life work for them. The side characters are well developed despite this being a novella. Nate's mother, an alpha female werewolf in their pack, is one forceful character. Her few confrontations with her alpha werewolf son provided some engaging moments. Steven maybe human but this quiet character with hidden strength complements the self doubting but courageous Nate nicely. I wish this story is longer.

Homes Fires is a wonderful surprise. Tortuga tends to give us more sex than emotions in her works. But in this novella, Tortuga has written a touching and tender story. Of course the sex is just as hot and animalistic. Both Houston and Jackson are werewolves and they of course mate for life. Houston left Jackson because he wished to see the bright city lights. Houston and his city pack were captured by soldiers and subjected to terrible experiments. He managed to escape and unite with his mate and their love story from thereon is stirring and moving as Jackson helps Houston to heal.
This is a great anthology of hot and sexy werewolves in love.

All the story in this anthology are about werewolfes and pack. Two lovers can be a pack? and can you live being a werewolf withot the shelter of a strong pack around you? two hearts and a cabin can be right for shapeshifters?

Instinct by Jourdan Lane: Jack has been turned in a terrible way, by an evil alpha male who now continues to torment him. And then he meets Noah, a gentle werewolf, who wants to prove to Jack that pack is not always a bad thing. Jack and Noah are balancing mate, noone of them is an alpha male, in a real and huge pack, maybe they would be beta male.

Son of a Bitch by Emily Veinglory: Nate is a lone wolf. He was banished from his pack cause he wanted to change the rules, wanted the modern world lead the pack to a new era. And now he has a shitty life in a rural small town. And then arrives Steven, city boy banished himself for different reason. They find each other, but Nate needs to free his wolf. He can't live continuing to hide that side of his soul. But Steven, and not only him, is ready to help and support him.

Home Fires by BA Tortuga: Houston has freed himself from a cage. He was taken prisoner by the army who wants to create a new powerful soldier able to shift. And now he has only a place to go back: the arms of his mate, Jackson. He has left him in a youthful attempt to find something more, but now he knows that with his lover he has all he needs.

It's not easy to say what is the best among this stories: they are all pretty good. Not funny, not at all, they have a common path of angst and of love which helps healing the wounds. A very good shapeshifter anthology for who loves this genre.
