The unusual circumstances that surround the leadership of this particular shifter pack form a backdrop for an unexpected relationship that forms between an alpha wolf in his own right and the damaged male he claims as his own. The sweetly unfolding story is a tribute to the healing power of acceptance and patience but it is a little uneven and makes one want to know more about the details that are often glossed over or omitted. The heat that develops between the main characters is intriguing and the hints of the connections between the pack makes one want to know more about all of the members. Some of the issues are resolved a bit too easily but this may be due to the brevity of the tale and hopefully subsequent stories in the series will give more depth and texture. A nice introduction to the pack that will leave the reader searching for more stories.
“Blue Mountain” by Cardeno C. is a m/m paranormal tale that details the relationship that forms between Mitch, alpha twin brother of the Alpha of the Blue Mountain pack, and Simon, an outcast omega wolf shifter. The events that have scarred Simon over the years culminate in a tragedy that brings him into the arms of the male who claims him as a mate and is willing to do whatever is necessary to cement their bond. This book is the first in the ‘Pack Collection’ series.
Exiled by his pack as a teen, Omega wolf Simon Moorehead learns to bury his gentle nature in the interest of survival. When a hulking, rough-faced Alpha catches Simon on pack territory, he tries to escape what he’s sure will be imminent death. But instead of killing him, the Alpha takes Simon home.
A man of action, Mitch Grant uproots his life to support his brother in leading the Blue Mountain pack. Mitch lives on the periphery, quietly protecting everyone, but always alone. A mate is a dream come true for Mitch, and he won’t let little things like Simon’s rejections, attacks, and insults get in their way. With patience, seduction, and genuine care, Mitch will ride out the storm while Simon slays his own ghosts and Mitch’s loneliness.
