My rating: 4 of 5 stars
These books are just plain fun, they’re an enjoyable romp through an alternative paranormal world where magical creatures live happily alongside humanity.
The first one in the series set up Biff’s brother founding the new pack and moving them to the West Coast where this tale now has them settling down and turning to find their way in their new home.
Biff bumps into ‘failed’ mage Max when he goes to register the new pack and all of a sudden it’s all systems go on him actually putting into practise his newly admitted status as a gay werewolf.
Biff is an absolute delight, he’s so sweet, gentle and caring even though he’s a piece of man muscle, as Max so eloquently describes him. Max has all sorts of hang ups and being able to trust someone isn’t even the hardest one.
Together they muddle through the triumphs and traumas of introducing a werewolf with brilliant self healing to the delights of gay sex (very hot), the acerbic wit of a man who might actually be the most powerful mage there’s been in an age and an overly protective pack.
In between they fight off baddies with an eye on the wreck of the house next door to Max’s where his father’s hidden secrets, a work colleague with relationship troubles and an overly harsh boss who might secretly be a bit of a softie really.
