Cage has finally had enough of Rob’s hot and cold routine. The flirting one minute and avoiding him the next is getting old, so he drives up to Rob’s cabin to demand answers. Except the ones he finds aren’t the ones he expected, and he isn’t sure what to do with them. That’s when things get hairy…literally.

Rob is a shifter. He and Cage are from two different worlds, and he doesn’t stand a chance at being more than friends with the cute human. Unfortunately his bear won’t take no for an answer and keeps insisting Cage is theirs. He escapes to his cabin hideaway to think—when Cage shows up, hammering on his door, Rob can’t resist any longer.

When Rob is caught unawares by a hunter, things almost end before they really begin, but a wolf jumps into the fray, and the tenuous relationship between Cage and Rob gets pushed to the breaking point. Noah is a wolf shifter hunting his sister’s killer, but on the trail he unexpectedly scents his mates. The only problem is they are already a couple and might not have room for one lonely wolf.

This may be a quick story but it is full of emotions and will pull on your heart strings at times. This story gives us three men and three different lives that all become intertwined. Can a friendship turn into something more? When you add in a total stranger to the mix just what will happen? Cage is a human and is quickly thrust into the world of shifters. When he finds out the secret Rob has been keeping will he take it all in or will he run? Can their friendship withstand it all or are they doomed from the start? Will the two men accept a stranger who claims to be theirs?

I was totally lost in this story from the start. Each of the men in this story endeared themselves to this reader almost immediately. I could not help but feel each ones plight and emotions. Cage knows nothing of the world Rob lives in but is more than happy to trust Rob and accept what comes their way and Noah is what comes their way. I loved the way these three interacted and easily cared for each other. Their connection may happen quickly but it runs deep. I loved seeing the way they each cared for each other and wanted to fix things for the others. Their bond is strong and as hot as they get in or out of the bedroom the love that they have shines through in everything that they do. They each have their crosses to bear but Noah seemed to need the most reassurance and made the strongest impression on me. I just wanted to hold him and make everything alright.

This book moves at a quick pace and keeps you interested all the way to the end and more. I was quickly pulled in and did not want to leave. I hope that this is not the last time this author brings readers to this world.
