ARC Review: Red River (Packs 2) by Cardeno C.

Two Alpha shifters join together to lead their pack and build a family.

Commitment, loyalty, and strength aren’t enough to make Wesley Stone’s birth pack accept an Alpha with a physical imperfection, even if it’s a meaningless mark. Putting the safety of his pack above his own wellbeing, Wesley trades himself for another Alpha and agrees to mate with a stranger in a mysterious, insular pack.

Alphas from Jobe Root’s family have led the Red River pack from the first day shifters walked the earth. Now the time has come for Jobe to fulfill his destiny, but to do that, he needs his mate by his side. Spiritual, easygoing Jobe reveres Mother Nature and trusts in fate, yet he can’t help being nervous about how his mate will react to his new life in Red River, his new life with Jobe.

Two Alphas with contrasting personalities, different upbringings, and divergent beliefs come together for the good of their packs. But to stay together, Wesley and Jobe must see beyond the surface and embrace every facet of themselves and their union.

Dani's rating:

A new CC book is like Christmas morning for me.

No spoilers (the discerning reader will see where the story is going almost immediately), but I can tell you this:

Two Alphas: one shunned by his pack because the scar on his abdomen makes him imperfect and thus unworthy; the other waiting patiently for his mate to arrive.

Steam & Romance (rough, sweet, and possessive)

Slow Burn (if you wait a decade, what's another month?)

HEA! (that epilogue ... serious feels, people; SERIOUS FEELS)

There's so much Wesley doesn't understand, and there's so much Jobe can teach him. Angry and isolated, Wesley is soothed by Jobe's calm presence. He just doesn't SEE, not the way Jobe sees.

The men connect on so many levels; they are confidantes and friends ... until Wes can't resist. Then there's the smell of orange and cloves, and Wes is consumed by passion. That's the way it was meant to be.

Beautiful, feel good story: shifters, mates, and MORE (just wait). The only thing I didn't like about this story is that it ended far too soon.

P.S. Cover LOVE! The dark one is so fucking hot, I'm staring. I'm staring hard.
