Caden Wells is finally on his way to the Alaskan wilderness, fulfilling a dream he’s had since he was a boy. He’s looking forward to solitary hikes and photographing wildlife. Upon arrival, he’s drawn to his guide’s brother, Drake Fisher, a man who resembles beast more than man. Drake’s unexpected interest surprises Caden, but when Drake claims fate has brought them together and that he’s a shapeshifter, Caden’s confusion turns to shock.
With the help of Drake’s brother, Dean, and Dean’s family, Caden realizes there must be some truth to Drake’s story. On his way to question Drake, the knowledge in his heart that something is wrong is confirmed by reports of poachers in the area. Caden sets out to save Drake, along with the life and love that have been waiting for him in Alaska all along.
There’s always an issue of believability in a story such as this where you’re dealing with a lot of different aspects such as shifters and love at first sight but I think the author managed to pull it off rather well. You learn enough about the characters to get a handle on who they are and what they’re like and it was easy to see and believe the attraction between them, even without the issue of mates coming up and I liked that; I always find it’s a good measure of the characters if you could see them together in a different setting or with taking away the shifter aspect.
I found the story itself enjoyable and while things did move fast, it was expected and nothing felt overly rushed besides the relationship. Even better was the fact that there was an epilogue at the end and everything felt complete to me so I came away happy after I finished reading. I will give a slight warning that there are mentions of mpreg so even if that isn’t your cup of tea, nothing is shown and you can happily ignore it if you so choose. I really enjoyed the story and the setting in this one and I know I’ll read it again. Fans of shifter stories that don’t mind a quick get together between the main characters should enjoy this one.
