SERIES: Wolf’s Mate (mpreg romance)
AUTHOR: Kiki Burrelli
LENGTH: 154 pages
RELEASE DATE: December 18, 2016
Felix is a handsome doctor who uses discipline and control to survive his tortured past. Sorell is a loyal shifter stuck in a bad relationship in order to protect his pack. Will they give in to the urges between them or will they forfeit their love to guard their pack?
Sorell may only be twenty-three but he knows how bad things can be and he’ll do anything to protect his new pack–his family. Even if that means ignoring his feelings for a sexy doctor and staying in a toxic relationship with a dangerous and violent man.
Felix wasn’t trying to find love, especially not with a younger man. He’s never been attracted to a man before Sorell and he’s still recovering from his last tour as a doctor in rough, foreign lands. His days are measured and controlled but he can’t stand by any longer and watch Sorell get hurt for the sake of others.
Sorell is set on sacrificing his own safety for the greater good. But Felix is growing stronger and he’ll face the whole world if that’s what it takes to save Sorell.
Contains slight BDSM
Oh this book is heart wrenching. In a good way but still. We are back with the pack and this time it is Sorell’s story. And what a story it is.
Sorell is one of the young ones of the pack, but he knows how tough life can be. With his old pack he has been through hell on Earth and now he is stuck in a relationship that he doesn’t want but has to stay in because he is being blackmailed. He will do anything he can to save his pack, including being beaten himself to keep everyone out of harm’s way. That’s a huge sacrifice he is always making for such a young wolf. And a glimpse into the kind of person Sorell is. And I love that.
During all this, the pack doctor, Felix (who is also Finn and Frannie’s brother from books 1 & 2), is watching Sorell come home with bruises at every turn and it is getting to him. Sorell has been in love with Felix but doesn’t think it will ever be returned because Felix is straight. But Felix is enamored of Sorell as well and wants to do anything he can to save Sorell from what he is going through. Felix sees that Sorell is hiding something and wants to be his protector and more. He wants Sorell to be his.
After a vicious beating on the night of Sorell’s birthday, we start to see things change with these two and I couldn’t be happier, because these two deserve each other. Sorell and Felix are both broken characters who don’t know how to love. Both men have so much to work out before they can be what the other needs. Sorell needs someone to show him loving dominance while Felix needs to exert his control and care for another. However, Felix’s demons hold him back from giving his all in an effort not to cross the line and become someone he doesn’t want to be again. Eventually circumstances overcome the past and these men get exactly what they need.
The sex is everything both could ever want. But it’s not just about sex. It’s about life and finding that someone who fulfills every part of each other’s lives. For these two it’s amazing because when you read what they have been through, you can’t help but want to see them happy. I root for them to be with each other because they love each other so much and need each other.
I love that Felix doesn’t care that he’s human. To him he’s the alpha for Sorell. I love that Sorell finally feels safe and protected. Even though he finds it frustrating at times, he knows he’s loved. And although life is still throwing curve balls at them, they find a way for them to make it work and keep going strong. Sometimes it’s a bit of spanking. Heehee.
This series is just so good and I hope that you all are reading with me and enjoying them as much as I am. The author has a way of keeping you hooked til the very end and I love that. Can’t wait to see what happens next as we get into Pippen’s story. See you soon!
