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.

The official blurb really does spell it our nicely. Samuel Goodwin is the Alpha presumptive of the Yafenack wolf shifter pack and Korban Keller the same for the Miancarem pack. They neighbour one another but the boys and their fathers could not be more different. They meet over the course of a decade at interpack council meetings and socially. The first time Samuel meets Korban he is thrown somewhat off balance by him, his smile, his observant navy-blue eyes and his ease of social contact. Nothing changes from the eight and eleven year olds they are at their initial meeting, until they are twenty three and twenty six.

Samuel is serious about being the future Alpha of the Yafenack pack. He is studious, he knows both the law and lore of the pack and wolf shifters in general. He is knowledgeable, gains a degree in accounting, and listens to his father’s words time and again about being a good pack Alpha. But his parents worry because Samuel lacks depth of emotion and an ease with people required to lead. Furthermore, he doesn’t have friends and he doesn’t appear to have ‘tied’ with another wolf. When he is eighteen his parents take him to the Miancarem pack for a social gathering of other young pack members, but Samuel just wants to be picked up early. He sees Korban again, he is just as bright and shiny, and Samuel still feels just as off balance around him.

Over the years Samuel develops a problem, he can’t shift back from his wolf into a human easily. He has to stop shifting as much as possible for fear of being lost to his wolf. Something that makes the frustrated and socially awkward Samuel even more aware of things he considers to be shortcomings. Something that ends up hurting Samuel.

While Korban Keller attends the same interpack meetings as Samuel, he differs.

I am disappointed in this book. I thought I was going to be pulled into a world of wolves, mates and love. Well I guess I was except the the last sentence was how quick the book dealt with those things. The book was very rushed. I felt the author wasn't invested in the story. Unfortunately, I invested to much to be happy with the outcome. The ending was 'wham, bam, thank you mam.' Why was Samual' s mother coming to visit so important to mention, when only one paragraph was dedicated to the reason. The issues involving the MCs was quickly wrapped up and they had their HEA. I felt the author didn't want to write this book and maybe she should have not done so because it was a sad continuation of the Mate Series.

There are those authors that you love so much, that when you see a piece of theirs that you haven’t read yet, you get a tingly feeling. Hey, don’t judge me. For some it’s a good shoe sale that gets them going.For me, it’s a Cardeno C. book.

In Your Eyes is the third installment of the Mates series, and I had no problems following the plot without having read the previous books. Will I read them? You bet I will, just because I love knowing the back-story on characters I fall in “book love” with.

In this story, we have two male characters that, while they have much in common – both are the son of the alpha in their respective wolf packs – they couldn’t be further apart in personality. Korban Keller, heir apparent of the Miancarem pack had a magnetic personality. People just seemed drawn to his upbeat nature, making his life look easy. Samuel Goodwin was everything Korban was not. Serious minded, even as a child, he studied hard so that when the time came for his father to pass the reins of the Yafenack pack to him, he’d be able to apply everything he’d learned. Relationships and all of the physical contact that came with them, weren’t his forte. Even during his first encounter with Korban (when he was eight and Korban was eleven), he was convinced that there had to be some ulterior motive to being sought out by the other alpha’s son.

The two of them meet over the years at various gatherings, and Sam just can’t wrap his head around why Korban is not only so persistent in looking for him, but seems genuinely happy to see the younger wolf. It drove Sam insane trying to figure out why. I loved that Sam’s inability to connect to his emotional side easily, made what should have been a simple matter of deductive reasoning so hard.

I almost didn't read this book. It was too long for a Sunday night, it started off too dull, and I have so many other books to read. I'd already been disappointed by Papa John's BBQ wings I was not ready for more. Yet I forced myself to continue reading as I enjoyed the a nice summer evening on the back porch with the animals. I pushed myself even when I wanted to stop and it was well worth it.
Finally the story came together after a sudden violent confrontation. I felt so sorry for the MC who narrated the book. I shared his parents frustration at his inability to understand emotions. He was was so robotic without any affect. The conflict between his wolf and his human was painful to see. His treatment of his only friend was abominable over the years, but he was just being himself.
After he became an adult his life was if anything harder. He and his family experienced some terrible times before things began to turn around. Coming to terms with having a male mate was extremely difficult for him and other wolves in his & surrounding packs. His mate was truly made for him. The ying to his yang. The Cheech to his Chong. I was glad to see him with someone who understood him. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, especially to The Mates series fans and those of you who've never enjoyed them.
