Goading the Enforcer

Wolves of Stone Ridge, #6

Jared Templeton came back to Colin City for one reason and that is to attend his sister’s wedding. Once that is over he had no plans to stay. After the wedding he would head back to Massachusetts and to go back to his job as an assassin. What he didn't intend was to find his mate. Jared has never been into other males, but he couldn't resist the pull of his mate Carson Angini. Carson is an enforcer for the Stone Ridge pack and doesn't like Jared because of his choice of careers.

Carson has killed for his Alpha but he didn't know how to accept a mate who kills without remorse or conscience. But he can't deny the attraction between himself and Jared.

There are so many things standing in the way for Jared and Carson. Can they both compromise for the other and live, love and be together or will their differences drive them apart?

Goading the Enforcer was extremely humorous and I enjoyed Jared’s sense of humor. I also enjoyed how Carson does not know what to do with Jared. The storyline complemented the overall Stone Ridge Pack series as well as being able to stand alone as a read. But I still recommended that this book be read in series order because other characters from the previous books are also in this one.

The heat and attraction between Jared and Carson was an added enjoyment of the storyline. I recommend this one for the good read it is.

Book Blurb for Goading the Enforcer

Jared Templeton returned to Colin City for one reason, to make it through his sister’s wedding. After that he wanted to return to his home in Massachusetts and go back to his blessed solitude and his life as an assassin. He didn’t plan on attending a viewing for a deceased mentor, agreeing to help his shifter friend rescue a blind man, or learning that he had a shifter mate, a male shifter mate. He’d never been attracted to a man before, but he couldn’t deny that he lusted after this one. And he had no clue what to do about it, or how he could fit the wolf shifter into his life if he did give in to his desires.

Carson Angeni is the enforcer for the Stone Ridge wolf pack. He’s followed his alpha’s commands and obeyed him without question, even to the point of taking lives to ensure the safety of his pack. When he’s faced with a mate who kills for money, with no remorse and no conscience, he questions Fate’s choice. How can he accept someone who seems to get his jollies by goading those around him, not to mention Jared lives halfway across the country? But as he gets to know the man, Carson learns that there is more to him than Jared’s brash exterior displays. There’s definitely a connection between them and both have trouble denying it, but Carson can’t accept Jared’s work as an assassin. And when Carson discovers that Jared knew from the beginning that he was Carson’s mate, it creates even more tension between them. Can Carson learn to trust his mate while trying to convince Jared to give up the only life and the only job he’s ever known, to settle with him in Stone Ridge?
