Book Blurb

An omega on the run.

An alpha fractured.

Sawyer Holt can’t go home. The Alpha who has replaced his father wants to use him as a tool to cement his political power, and Sawyer isn’t interested in marrying his father’s murderer.

Dez Sullivan’s leg may never heal from his last mission in Afghanistan, but he’s getting used to that. What he can’t adapt to are the nightmares and the tremor in his hand that the doctors insist is all in his head. Next to that, being a brand new werewolf seems easy, until Sawyer Holt blows into his life. The omega activates his burgeoning wolf instincts in a new way, and they threaten to overwhelm his common sense.

Both men are in Colorado searching for a new start, a new pack, and the safety they’ve lost. Their meeting is pure Kismet.


Book Review

I love a good shifter love story. This was is definitely one of those. It is the first book in this series and I truly look forward to the next book in this series when it comes out. This is not your typical pack. It is extremely rare to have so many alpha shifters in a pack who treat one another as equals. But in this book, they are more then just shifters, they are former brothers in arms, best friends, and as close as brothers can be without being blood related. That made this book so much better.


Sawyer is an omega who is on the run from his former pack. After his father was murdered and Mark became the new alpha for murdering him, Mark decided that Sawyer was going to be his as well. Sawyer was not having any of that so he ran. He cannot get over the fact that no one in his old pack stood up for him or his father and he knows there is no way that he will ever be able to be with the man who murdered him to become the new alpha.


After getting a ride from someone, Sawyer ends up in a place called Kismet, Colorado. Sawyer never expected this to be the place he would end up staying. While running from some of the betas from his former pack, Sawyer enters what he thinks is a café in hopes of getting away from them. This is where he meets the man he immediately feels safe with and attracted to at the same time… Dez.


Dez is a former military man. But recently Dez and one of his best friends, Gavin, were both bitten and turned while on deployment. Not only that but Dez was seriously injured at the time this happened. Now Dez has a bum leg and has to use a cane to help keep the pressure off. Being newly turned into a wolf shifter, Dez is still trying to get used to his new senses.


When a man comes running in off the street, Dez feels an immediate pull to him that he has never felt for anyone else. He also knows that he needs to protect this man. This is unlike Dez because he normally does not take well to new people around him. Being an alpha, Dez makes the decision to help Sawyer.


Sawyer is shocked that this alpha helped him and what is even more shocking is when two more alphas enter the room. As Sawyer is passing out, he thinks to himself he is glad he does not have to see the war that is undoubtedly about to happen.


What is even more shocking is when Sawyer comes to and finds out the alphas are not only not fighting but they are best friends. This is the most unique pack Sawyer has ever been around and he wants to stay. Will these three alphas decide to take in the omega? What will happen when Mark shows up and tries to make Sawyer return to his former pack?


This was such a great read! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book whether it is about Gavin or about Ash. I know both books for these two men will be awesome to read!
