Rating: 3 stars out of 5
Good things never happen in a continuous stream for Jalen Etters. He has a job he loves, a roof over his head, and all the food he could eat. He even flirts with a sexy little barista named Markie. When he finds himself hiding out from human soldiers on his construction job site, he thinks his good streak is over. Thankfully, Rico, a hawk shifter, is sent to save him, so the good streak is still intact. Then he finds out Rico is his mate but he’s in love with Markie. Maybe his good streak is over after all.
I was looking forward to this story and seeing these characters finally get their own story after seeing them in the last few. Jalen has lived his life for his brothers forever and is willing to give up his own happiness for those he loves. Markie and Rico have danced around each other for a long time and just as either of them are willing to make a move Jalen is thrown into the mix.
Jalen has trouble giving up control of everything and trying to figure out everything with his mates makes that even harder. I hurt for Markie and Rico when Jalen just seemed to give up hope and wouldn’t respond to anything or anyone. Markie really shows how he cares and is willing to push in order to break through the walls around Jalen’s heart and finally show his feelings towards Rico. Rico seemed to think he had everything figured out but it didn’t mean they were all up to his way of thinking and I was happy to see them all finally get past the barriers in their way.
The cover art by Erin Dameron-Hill is nice and follows the pattern for the series.
