Landry Michaels, lead enforcer for the KinKaid pack has a secret. Well…make that more than one. He’s in love with the alpha’s sister, Rosa, and his best friend, Kaleb. Wouldn’t be so bad if having either of them was in the realm of possibility. Landry’s past, and his present, contain one too many stains, making him a bad fit for the pack’s beauty. And when it comes to Kaleb… The fact the male is straight is only the beginning of why he’s “hands off”.
Kaleb Dalton is a male who has it all. A great family. A job that allows him to work every day with his best friend, Landry. Everything should be great, right? Except for the fantasies about his partner that plague his days, and the desires for Rosa that taunt him in his dreams at night. Two people, if he had half a brain, who should not be on his short list for lovers. As a male who’s earned his reputation as a player, settling down with Rosa is out of the question. As for Landry…? Kaleb’s heterosexual, born and breed from one of the top families in the pack—so what the hell is the other male doing in his daydreams?
Ever since she was a little girl, Rosa Kinkaid has had Landry and Kaleb’s attention. But it was never anything serious. They were friends. Besides, there has always been plenty of time for her to choose a lover—a mate. Her family needed her, and they came first. Until now...
Rosa's going into heat.
But that's not their only problem. The KinKaid and Gregorson pack are on the verge of war. And there are long-buried family secrets, feelings, and hidden desires rising to the surface along with Rosa’s heat. Some will be shocking and others more disturbing than any of them are prepared to handle.
This is my first Jessica Lee story and I have to say she has a new fan in me. I enjoyed getting to know Landry, Kaleb and Rosa and watching them dance around each other.
Landry has this growly alpha personality that I absolutely adored. He is definitely a man who can and will protect those he loves no matter the consequences. Kaleb was definitely the sweeter gentler soul, the one Rosa feels is easier to confide in.
Rosa is a great heroine, she fights and doesn’t go down easily. I understood her struggle with not knowing if she can be a mate to two males. They make it work. The scenes between them are explosive and Ms. Lee can definitely heat up an e-reader.
I highly recommend this story and I will be going back and reading the other books in the series and anything else of Ms. Lee’s I can get my hands on.
I received a copy in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my review.
“In your dreams.” Kaleb smirked.
“You’re not my type.” Liar. Kaleb was exactly Landry’s type, except for the annoying fact he was straight.
“Please,” Kaleb drawled. “Everyone is your type. That’s why Rosa will never let you anywhere near her.”
Landry internally flinched, his hold tightening on his beer. The booze was going straight to Kaleb’s mouth. His partner wasn’t wrong, though. Kaleb knew Rosa had a piece of Landry’s heart. He should, because the other male had it just as bad for her, though he would deny his feelings went that deep. Landry cared for her more than she’d ever know because Rosa deserved better than a bastard male like himself with so much damn baggage a 747 would be challenged for takeoff.
Landry slapped his friend on the back. “Like you’re on her short list for a mate. All she’s willing to give either of us is a right cross. Not to mention you broke her best friend’s heart last year.”
“The female knew what she was getting into before she crawled into my bed.” Kaleb shook his head, auburn strands of hair falling into his face. “I told her I didn’t want anything more,” he stated, his words starting to slur.
Landry suppressed a grin. Kaleb was over six foot-two and one badass wolf, but the male was a lightweight when it came to alcohol.
