From the blurb:
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.
Cardeno C. does shifters! It's all feelings and mates and sexy-times up in here, and I'm LOVING it!
Cardeno C. is probably my biggest hit or miss author for me. I consider myself a HUGE fan of CC's work, but I think that CC has balls of steel sometimes for giving me all of these ARCs considering I'm just as likely to 1-star them as 5-star them. But this one I simply adored.
I'm actually surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did because this book is just filled with miscommunications and misunderstandings. In fact, I'd say that they were the primary factors that drove the plot! However, I was absolutely smitten by this sweet, instalove/slow burn (you'll see...) story with some seriously sexy action.
I was a little taken aback by the mpreg element, which I see is included in a lot of reviews but I didn't expect it because it is usually a sci-fi thing. However, I was into it because, well, I'm weird like that! I thought that the whole book was a short, adorable slice of heaven, usual tastes be damned!
I think something that HUGELY affected my rating was the stellar narration by my new favorite, Nick J. Russo. He is seriously becoming an auto-listen narrator for me, as he has MADE my last few listens. His voices are just dreamy, and I really enjoyed his narration with this one.
All fans of Cardeno C., especially the shifter stories, should try this one. It was a very easy, satisfying listen, and I highly recommend it!
