by Nancy Adams
Theo’s sole purpose for the last ninety-eight years was to protect his wolf. That changed the moment he met Drew and the wolf called ‘Mate’.
Carrying the soul of an extinct wolf alongside your own isn’t easy. Swapping into said wolf is even harder. Ask Theo Grey—he’s been doing it for ninety-eight years. Yet, after surviving two world wars, witnessing the space race and patiently enduring the eighties, you’d think he’d have seen it all, but nothing could have prepared him for meeting Tofino’s new vet, Drew O’Bannion and according to the wolf, his mate.
Drew loves her dog, sleeping in and coffee. She also loves being a vet. The main reason behind her accepting the veterinarian practice offered to her from a family friend. Hoping for a slower pace at life Tofino seemed the ideal spot. What she didn’t expect was Officer Theo Grey. Theo is tall, dark and drop dead gorgeous, a definite 10 on the ‘wow’ scale. Regardless of his looks, there is more to Theo, there is her unexpected attraction for him. It’s unnerving and completely out of character for her, but she is able to match Theo’s hungry kiss, for hungry kiss.
With their desire growing at an alarming rate and the threat of an unknown shooter roaming the woods of the coastal town, Theo must face the ultimate decision—let Drew go for her own safety or claim his mate for all time.
Reader Advisory: This story contains scenes of violence and threats of non-consensual sex.
“That can’t be.” She narrowed her eyes. “Oh my God! You’re not just any wolf. You’re a BC wolf.” She took a slow, deep breath. “You’re supposed to be extinct, my friend.”
Theo and the wolf stiffened at the same time.
Drew knew what type of wolf he was. Not many people did.
The wolf lowered his head. Her fear and confusion and sudden excitement filtered its way through the wolf to Theo. He fought the wolf’s urge to bolt when he picked up the sudden nervous tension. No.
He needed a minute. He needed to figure out what that thing was between his wolf and the gray wolf. His wolf had become acutely aware of the smaller female, yet had kept his focus on protecting Drew. Theo wanted to know what that was all about, but he could feel the wolf’s puzzlement.
Drew’s sigh caught his attention. “And now you’re looking at me like I’m your dinner. Ha! Great!” Theo smiled and commanded the wolf—and himself—to calm down.
Resting inside the wolf, Theo watched Drew. She wrapped her arms around her middle as she examined him. Then, giving him a slight smile, she asked, “How are you alive when the rest of your species was killed off?”
He could smell her nervousness, which was understandable, but she was curious now too.
“Don’t worry,” she spoke softly, moving toward the rock. “I don’t expect you to answer.”
She sat down so slowly that Theo wanted to chuckle. He wouldn’t hurt her or attack her, not even if she provoked him, and neither would the wolf.
He was still a little baffled over their collective reaction to the pack’s intrusion. Normally he would have just walked away. Neither of them had wanted to get into a scrap with a pack of hungry wolves, yet when he had caught their interest in Drew, the wolf had almost taken over. It had been a long time since he’d had to struggle to maintain control of the wolf and it had been a long time since the wolf, through a red haze of rage, had demanded a kill.

This is definitely an ADULTS ONLY read! It was very hot!
I was very intrigued with the different kind of shifter that Theo was in this. He carried the spirit of a wolf beside his own. They have a symbiotic relationship where Theo is the alpha.
I loved Theo. He has a very commanding presence. Very alpha male. When he speaks its always important. Drew is a super independent, sassy female. I loved how fearless she is. She made me laugh out loud at a few points.
They meet when Theo brings an injured dog in that was shot to the vet and finds out that Drew took over. Instantly he feels a connection with her and his wolf recognizes her as Theo's mate.
They start a relationship of sorts that's mostly just sex even though they both really like each other. Theo's fighting the truth that Drew is his mate. Which makes for some amusing conversations between him and his wolf.
About half way through the book it starts getting really suspenseful. A hunter has been shooting dogs then shooting the local wolves. You come to find out that the target is really Theo's wolf which is a British Colombian wolf that's supposed to be extinct. He's working for a collector of extinct and rare animals who wanted them to make sure that the wolf was really there and track him so he could come and hunt it. He's just a very bad man in general and mad for a good bad guy.
If you like suspenseful reads with some steamy romance then I would definitely recommend this for you. Theo and Drew are a fun pair to read about.
