Check. Check. Check. Check. Loved it all.
I love the way the story was told. The prologue starts in the present, and then we're taken to the very beginning of Zev and Jonah's friendship until the story catches up to the prologue. I loved that anticipation of finding out why things are the way they are in the prologue.
With Zev being a shifter (a powerful alpha at that) and Jonah being human, there were a lot of things these two needed to overcome to be together. In the middle of the book, the author really had me straddling the line of frustration with Zev for keeping important information from Jonah...especially with where Jonah's inner thoughts took him and what actions he believed he needed to take. That could have all been avoided.
But a big ol' hallelujah that the drama llama didn't show up during a couple of key moments when that bitch could have trampled all over this story.
One of the things that I really appreciated was when things came to a head, Jonah took a lot of things in stride and didn't throw a fit like may have been expected. Was it a little too easy? Yes. But I understood it. Zev was his best friend, he'd never given Jonah reason to doubt him or distrust him...and so many things that had been nagging in the back of Jonah's conscious finally made sense.
Zev and Jonah were truly perfect together. Blondie and his Pup absolutely melted my heart!
Highly, HIGHLY recommend this shifter book to everyone!
Zev and Jonah were quite the adorable couple. They meet very young and they are sweet from age 1 and on. I liked we got to see how they grew with each other and how their relationship became something more serious than friends. I thought Zev being so naïve about gay sex was kind of adorable. I loved how Jonah made him feel comfortable about it all and how Zev was so accepting on how things were and who he was.
I didn't like how long it took for these two to actually join together as a complete couple and how long it took Zev to fill Jonah in on who he really was and why they had to wait so long to be completely intimate with each other. Then there was the ending. It was rushed for me. It felt to abrupt. I wanted more. I wanted to see Jonah meeting the rest of Zev's family. I wanted to see Jonah's dads reaction to him being a shifter and being mated with Zev. It felt unfinished and that left me unsatisfied.
Still enjoyed it. Just wanted more.
Happy reading dolls! xx
It's different, a bit long, but we still get the deep emotions Cardeno C gives us. ENJOY !

Instead, what I got here was a cleverly constructed world of paranormal with specific rights and rituals which was organically delivered throughout the story and never given as an info dump.
I loved the fact this book takes place over an almost 30 year period and that there was plenty of relationship development between the two MCs.
The mystery plot never too over and there were a great bunch of secondary characters who added depth to the world setting without taking over.
Sexual tensions were kept at high throughout and the scene where Zev and Jonah finally have full penetrative sex was ridiculously hot as were all their encounters.
Lovely start to this series with enough plot hooks left for further exploration of this world.
This is an excellent m/m, shifter book, it has the soul mate, angst and humour so it has it all. Thoroughly recommend reading this book.
