My Review : From the moment Sam lays eyes on his beautiful goth angel in the grocery store,  he knows he is his other half. Taylor is amazed that a sexy, sophisticated man is interested in getting to know him. He is a little bit fragile and considers himself to be broken after escaping an abusive relationship with a bear shifter. Sam invites Taylor to dinner and a movie at the ranch and he has no clue that Sam is also a bear shifter. 

As soon as Taylor arrives, the date starts going south. Sam makes a wonderful shrimp bisque for dinner to impress Taylor,  but Taylor is allergic to seafood. Sam realizes after they are settling in that Taylor is very skittish.  As much as he would like to pounce, Sam gentles his approach and allows all his other shifter brothers to sit in on the movie when he notices that Taylor is more comfortable that way. Their second date doesn’t fare much better when Sam falls off a horse trying to impress Taylor yet again. Poor Taylor is shaken up thinking about how Sam could have gotten seriously injured. Taylor makes the decision to start opening up a little more to Sam, when Sam gets an assignment from T-rex and has to go away. 

Sam hates to leave Taylor unattended but he can’t tell Taylor that he is so protective because they are mates . He wants to ease him into the idea gently. Taylor is enjoying Sam’s  flirty phone calls and he even starts to flirt back a little.  This is until he gets a call from his  abusive ex. His ex tears him down with just a few vindictive words, bringing Taylor to a depressing low that pushed Taylor into a bottle of tequila. 

Taylor’s best friend Cameron is worried when his friend doesn’t come home. Cameron calls Sam and explains the situation.  Sam is frantic, and  comes home immediately.  He finds Taylor hungover in his car. Sam knows that he can no longer put off telling Taylor he is a bear. Sam reveals his  news after making passionate love to Taylor.  Taylor is distraught and runs back to his apartment. Sam begs for a chance to prove himself. He needs to protect his mate desperately.  

Taylor moves to the ranch to gain  his mate’s protection as well as getting to know Sam. It is only a matter of time before trouble comes knocking. Taylor’s abusive ex shows up to try to take Taylor away and Sam ends up killing him. Taylor reclaims his life and take it one day at a time. They take their relationship slowly and they both come to a mutual decision that they are not ready for kids. I give this one my ratings of 3 – it was ok.
