As personal assistant to a powerful alpha of a large pack, there are certain rules Jamie has for himself to make sure he’s successful at his job.
First, nothing and no one gets to the alpha without his say so.
Second, schedules will be enforced for everyone. At all costs.
Third, a certain Enforcer with an enticing scent and scarred face is not to be stared at, drooled over, and/or daydreamed about.
And fourth, human hunters are never, ever mate material—no matter what their smiles or Southern drawls do to him.
But what if his own rules are preventing Jamie from finding something unique and magical and hotter than he could ever imagine? Because being caught between a grumpy cougar and a dangerous hunter was the last place Jamie thought he should be… but it might just be exactly where he needs to be to find both of his fated mates.
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating between Jamie, Drake, & Gabriel.
First. That cover. 🔥🔥🔥 and the perfect representation of the book’s characters.
While each book in the series covers a different couple – in this case a throuple/triad/poly – there are ongoing mystery/suspense story arcs that are developed as the series goes on. So, start at the beginning and read/listen in order.
I’ve been waiting for these guys and I’m so sucked into the Pack/Council political intrigue. Clark didn’t disappoint. This had to be my favorite so far. I listened to it in two days. This runs somewhat concurrently to Marcus & Robson’s book – but didn’t feel like a copy/paste. While there were a few scenes that were in both, because they were from completely different POVs instead of feeling repetitive it gave the story depth.
I really enjoyed getting to know Jamie, Drake, & Gabriel better. It wasn’t easy or Insta-love for them though they definitely felt a pull and poor Drake wasn’t easy to win over. I thought Clark did a good job honoring Drake’s PTSD & disability as an amputee. I also liked that there was an equal pull & respect for each other (or at least they got there.). My favorite poly are the ones where all are included and not equal exactly – but I definitely like to feel that no one is needless extra. Each guy had his own personality and they all had unique & strong relationships with each other.
I’m also a huge fan of the romantic suspense and mystery aspect of these books and this was one of the strongest in that aspect. I adore the Kincaid Pack/worldbuilding as well. It really works for me. The return from recovering Gregson’s secret message was a surprise and just leads to more mysteries.
While I’m excited for Nico & Keegan’s book, The Enforcer and His Heart (Nico has been a fun background character and I can’t wait to see what Clark has in store for him), I admit to be crushing on the hints at Doc and Damien. 🤞🏼
Kirt Graves narration on this series has been phenomenal. Clark has a huge cast of characters and Graves has given them each a unique “voice” and it remains consistent through all the stories. The inflections, accents, register, and emotions match the writing perfectly. These are so easy to binge.
