Loner Matt Urban has somehow ended up as alpha to a pack of outcasts and misfits. When an injured shifter blunders onto their territory one night, swearing he didn’t know it was pack territory, Matt is suspicious. It doesn’t help that the stranger, Jesse Turner, is as stubborn as Matt. Wanting answers, Matt persuades Jesse to stay a while, and the intense attraction they feel for one another soon blazes into heat. That’s when Matt realizes—the stranger with the smart mouth and the attitude problem is his mate.

Matt, still mourning the lover he lost years ago, doesn’t want a mate, and Jesse doesn’t believe in mates. Yet neither of them can deny the pull they feel toward one another.

They’re still struggling with the situation when a hostile alpha claims Jesse. Matt has to fight to protect Jesse. First, though, he has to fight Jesse’s stubborn independence if he’s to win his heart.

Matt Urban is a typical Alpha, strong, sexy and broken. His pack however, is anything but normal. But he’s settled into a fairly normal life as a sheriff of a small town with his rag tag pack.

Until of course trouble enters the scene in the shape of a scrappy, mouthy loner by the name of Jesse Turner. When some of the pack members stumble across an injured Jess, Matt decides to let the young man heal at his home before sending him on his way. Little did he know that this stranger was his mate!

Matt and Jesse were a fun couple to get to know because of the opposites attract scenario, Jesse being wild and free and defiant while Matt was tight and structured and used to having his way as an Alpha. Though both men are broken in their own ways and had learned to live with that, Joy Lynn Fielding was able to bring these two together in a beautiful, and sexy way. The attraction between the two was hot and sweet all at the same time.

The author did a great job of painting the sordid backgrounds of the characters in this book. She was able to pique my curiosity for more information on the rest of the members in the back all the while driving home that even if you don’t want something, sometimes you need it.

Great read for those who root for the underdog and love a little angst with their men.
