Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Cardeno C.—CC to friends—is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few awwws into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

I really loved Ethan. He was adorable. Loved how he didn't give up once he knew Miguel was his mate. I was initially very angry at his mistreatment by his pack but since it did bring him to Miguel, I couldn't be too upset.
Ethan and Miguel fit together so perfectly. I loved that Ethan was the one Miguel needed to fulfill his hunger. Their scenes together were so incredibly sexy!
Ethan is a wolf shifter, unable to shift, sickly and small. He has accepted he will not live out the year so joins some young pack mates who are going into town to attack some bloodsuckers that have arrived recently. Ethan thinks dying while fighting the vampires will be a heroes death. Just as he is sure he is going to die the biggest and baddest of the vampires the shifters attacked stops Ethan's imminent death and Ethan has his first orgasm and shift, an odd occurrence considering the circumstances. He later returns to the scene to find the vampire Miguel and realizes they are True Mates.
I'm not sure if this is an alternate world created by the author and find that a little confusing. The towns mentioned don't exist but they appear to take place somewhere in Georgia. The story is actually a prequel to 'Wake Me Up Inside' and ends about 30 years before we meet Ethan and Miguel in that book.
There is a lot of drama here and danger. Shifters and Vampires are sworn enemies so the two being True Mates doesn't go well between the species. I did enjoy learning the differences and like the first book the author did not follow the usual tropes and introduced his own version of shifters and vampires.
I could give this book a strong four stars except for Ethan. He is a strongly written character and his emotions and reactions to the events taking place are what really bring the story to life. However, UGH! his language is a farce! I tried, really I tried very hard to keep reminding myself that he was dirt poor, raised on pack lands away from humans and the majority of this story took place about 50 years ago but the way Cardeno C. wrote Ethan's language would make Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn and Lennie Small correct him! Truly cringe worthy.
I have a thing for forced mating/bonding stuff, it's intriguing to me - and here the author goes even further to take a very unlikely pair (Vampire and shifter). The shifter thing is odd, though, as he's never been able to shift until he meets his mate and is able to release blood. Wait, it's get worse - he makes extra blood considering who his mate is.
Anyway, once the two finally meet and stay together, the inevitable too-much-sex starts happening to the point where it gets dull and warrants skimming. The bedroom play wasn't that exciting in the book to me otherwise, except perhaps the first or second time. Still, I like the two together and it's a sweet bonding that made an easy read.
I will have to say I wish the author had left off the strange country language and terminology of the shifter pack, it's just not done well. (Clothes are over yonder...)
I haven't read the other books in the series. For this genre, it's a three star rating and recommended for m/m paranormal romance fans. As with many books of its breed, though, it's better in first half before it jumps into the too-much erotica field.
