This is the fourth book in the Assassin/Shifter stories. To fully appreciate the characters, I recommend you start with “A Marked Man” then “Alaska with Love” and finally “By the Light of the Moon”
My Review : Troy has been on mission after mission for a long time and he’s ready to head back to the reservation finally to catch up with his friends and makeshift family. His best friend Sam’s family became his second family after his family was murdered.
Sawyer has long held out hope of finding his mate and he has an idea who it might be. The day that Troy comes home, Sawyer is so excited he is unable to hold his human form. Troy is shocked to see a wolf at the meet and greet when he gets to the reservation. He has no clue that he is actually looking at his mate. When he finally meets Sawyer the man, he sees a very strong willed, beautiful , abrasive young man who he ends up offending.
The attraction between the two is instant and soon they can’t keep their hands off each other. Shortly after making love, Sawyer shifts into his werewolf form by accident and this gets an unfavorable response from Troy. Sawyer feels as if his mate rejected him and it’s the worst kind of pain. Troy calms down after it is revealed that Sam, his best friend is also a werewolf. He apologizes to his mate and quickly gets into the swing of things finding himself falling hard for Sawyer.
Their idyllic bliss is soon interrupted when someone burns down Troy ‘ s parents house and tries to hurt Sawyer. Troy goes into protective assassin mode and is ready to do what he does best, Kill! Troy is willing to kill, to protect Sawyer because he doesn’t want to lose his beautiful man before enjoying life with him. When the perpetrators are cornered and a fight ensues, Troy takes a bullet that is meant for Sawyer. His wounds are life threatening and Sawyer has no choice but to turn his mate in order to save him. Troy is happy to be turned werewolf but Sawyer feels a little guilty. Sex with the two Werewolfs is even hotter than before. Troy and Sawyer had great chemistry and the makings of an everlasting love. They are already planning a double wedding with Sam and Dakota. Can’t wait 😆. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.
