Can an Alpha wolf convince his straight mate to give love a chance, before an unexpected enemy tries to rob them of all they hold dear…even their own lives?

Eli Steele is a wolf without a pack. An invitation from his best friend, brings him to Grand Rapids, and a meeting with the local Alpha changes Eli’s life in ways he ever expected.

Kellan Reeves, Alpha of the Grand Rapids Pack, had lost hope of ever finding his mate until Eli came to him, looking for a pack. Realising Eli is his mate, he feels things couldn’t be more perfect…discounting the angry pack Eli left behind. There’s also the insignificant fact that Eli’s not gay. It’s nothing an Alpha wolf can’t handle.

While Eli struggles to understand his feelings for Kellan, an unexpected call for help has everyone on edge. As enemies move in and a horrifying plot is revealed, Kellan and Eli fight back, not only for themselves, but for the fate of all shifters.

Accepting the Alpha is a great shifter story.  It has some great characters and an interesting premise. With suspense and a bit of angst, I found myself completely enthralled with Eli Steele and Kellan Reeves. They are both strong male characters and I loved that they found each other and were willing to work through all the issues that popped up.

Kellan is the kind of Alpha, any pack of shifters would be proud to call their leader, he’s strong, compassionate and willing to do anything for his pack and then man he loves.

Eli is a Beta, which means he’s a protector of his pack. So when he finds himself without a pack, he goes a bit crazy, and even though he’s straight he finds himself insanely attracted to Kellan. I don’t always enjoy “gay for you” stories, but JJ Black does a fabulous job of making this trope work for this story.

I highly recommend this story, because it’s an interesting new world and I’m hoping the start to a new series. I really want to read more books in this world from this author.
