“It hurts everywhere. Please, touch me.”
Young wolf shifter Caleb didn’t expect to be fighting for his life while protecting a group of cubs he escorted up the mountain on a morale-building exercise but that’s what happened. And he would have died if it wasn’t for gorgeous alpha mountain man, Asher. He is thankful for the man’s help, but any further gratitude dies on his lips when the man informs him in no uncertain terms that Caleb belongs to him and will stay by his side. Caleb could try to escape and hobble his way back to his pack, except, his body and especially his inner wolf don’t want to go anywhere Asher isn’t. The lone wolf can light a fire in Caleb in a way that he has never experienced.
“They left you up here and it is for the best because the forest has given you to me. You’re mine.”
Asher has been alone for most of his life but when Caleb steps foot on his mountain, he senses his mate immediately. He knows his mate is a gift and will stop at nothing to claim him. Finding him and protecting him is easy enough. It is convincing the younger shifter he is his that is a challenge. Asher can be patient though, especially if the end goal is showing Caleb how good their lives could be together.
The forest may be Asher’s home, but it is also a dangerous place and if Asher wants his life with his mate, he’ll have to save him first.
This series is so good. I’m so glad I picked them to read. They will definitely stay in my library to read over and over again.
In this book we meet Caleb, a young pup so full of life and Asher, an older wolf who has been on his own for quite a while. It would be hard to pick a favorite character in this one if I had to. I adore Caleb and Asher both in different ways. Caleb is so young and innocent and you can’t help but want to protect him with everything you are. Which is what happens. Caleb ended up hurt by coyotes and almost died while he was protecting his younger pack mates. If it wasn’t for lone wolf Asher, Caleb would have died. And Asher would do anything for the young man he smelled as his mate. Asher knows he has to do everything he can to keep his little mate alive and well and to make Caleb realize that he belongs to him.
Caleb is such a fiesty little wolf. He’s recognized Asher as his mate but isn’t quite sure that’s what he is feeling. Being hurt has left him confused but when he figures it out, he can’t believe it. He often hides his insecurities behind a little smart mouth and being petulant. The truth is he doesn’t quite know what to do. He’s innocent and pure and it’s so adorable because he gets so flustered and shy. He wants to feel valuable to Asher. What he doesn’t realize and what Asher is trying to get through his head is that he is valuable just the way he is. Asher knows Caleb is a gift to him and he intends to treasure him every way possible.
Asher’s character is so different. Asher left his pack at a young age and has been one his own in the wild living as a wolf for some time. He’s even had a hard time at first just trying to speak. When he shifts to being human it is very rare. So when he has to take care of Caleb, at first it is hard for him. Being alone in the wild for so long has made him gruff but seeing him care for Caleb is so endearing. He is so enamored of Caleb and longs to make him his. Both Asher and Caleb are very new to what they are going through and it’s so beautiful to see them learn each other and trust when trust is so very hard. They both have to learn to compromise for their relationship and it is sweet to watch.
I want to recommend this book and this series to any and all who love love stories. These books have made me laugh, cry, and just be all around happy.
