The story starts in medias res, so we are thrown into the action right from the beginning: Cole, the hero is on a mission for a super-secret special shifter organization, but he deviates from the script (for good reason) and gets hurt quite badly. On top of that he lands in the hands of a dubious government law-enforcement agency that is rather negatively pre-disposed towards shifters and trying to tie him to a drug operation is not the worst thing they do to him…
His present predicament is exacerbated by the fact that the mating curse has kicked in, a condition that afflicts those of his kind and that will ultimately lead him losing all connection to his rational human side and retreat completely into his animal, unless he manages to find his true mate first and she agrees to bond to him. The problem is of course that he had already found the love of his life and his mate and then left her (involuntarily, but she doesn’t know that)…
I really liked the plotline and the potential for self-sacrifice and tragedy that it implies. Luckily it doesn’t come to that, although our hero has quite a bit of suffering to do before the HEA. I also find the origin story of the Gallize shifter quite intriguing, though not completely new… it left me wondering, though, what the origin of the “regular” shifters was…
I also loved the mixture of a quasi-military background, especially the strong team spirit of this special shifter unit, paired with a mystery and an emotionally engaging love story. Putting the two lovers on opposing sides intensified the internal conflict they already grappled with.
So, overall 4.5 stars for this gripping story that promises to be a great start to an amazing series!
First in the paranormal League of Gallize Shifters romance series.
Shifters have been outed and the world struggles.
Cole left Tess back in their college days when he became a Shifter, the ring still in his pocket.
He is part of a secret group that protects humans. Tess works for a government agency that investigates paranormal crimes.
Cole believes he needs to protect and then leave Tess again, but his wolf calls Tess “Mate”.
An engrossing adventure and compelling read. I stayed up well into the night to finish it.
I really wanted this couple to work things out. I wanted to yell at him to “have faith” but since his concern was for her well-being, I couldn’t judge him too harshly. Maybe she should have shared more of what was going on with her physically. Like the healed arm that no one really talked about!
Lots of depth and back story that has barely been covered or explained yet. Lots of secondary characters I want to know more about. I can see this series going far and look forward to reading more.
When the fact that shifters were living amongst humans was revealed, Cole Cavanaugh was stunned like other mortals. Then his college days and relationship with Tess Janver were suddenly over when he shifted because Gray Wolf made its presence known inside his body. Cole is a Gallize shifter, and he now watches over all beings to make sure rules are followed. His actions can also turn deadly in an instant if an event requires it. Though he sometimes has a difficult time controlling the part of him which is wolf, he is determined to be the one commanding his actions.
While Cole is still capable of carrying out his missions, Gray Wolf is becoming very demanding lately plus the mating curse that affects Gallize shifters is starting to bother him, too. With no potential partner, his time left to live is growing ever shorter. When Tess unexpectedly comes back into Cole’s life, her work investigating shifters puts her at odds with him. But after his enemies also become hers, he will do whatever it takes to ensure she is not harmed.
I was certainly excited when I learned Dianna Love was writing in a new genre, and GRAY WOLF MATE never disappoints as the inventiveness of the story only increases with each new development. The Gallize shifters are so distinctive when it comes to beings that can change shapes, and I would like to think there would actually be such a group watching over humans if one day the supernatural proves to be factual. Numerous individuals with specific abilities related to their species left me in awe at times, especially since many of their gifts are ones which I have never before encountered in a book. Also, many of the different groups mentioned are very unusual, whether they are comprised of humans or preternaturals with unusual origins.
From the very beginning, I was taken with how ethical Cole was regardless of what he attempted. Despite abruptly losing what was most important to him, he accepted his destiny to protect others and rose above all the challenges that came his way. Tess likewise had to overcome plenty of hurdles when she decided to use her degree to make certain all beings are treated fairly, as she has a good reason to not like shifters. She and Cole are compassionate individuals, and it really shows in how they react to one another or even strangers. While they may have been apart for years, it only takes one touch for sentiments thought buried to resurface. When truths come out, I feared their already shaky relationship may not last. Several tense moments caused an adrenaline rush, while the scenes depicting profound feelings deeply touched me. What an emotional journey Ms. Love devised for this couple.
I voluntarily reviewed the book and all comments are my honest opinion
