Joey’s mate, Breeze, is a midwife. She’s about to deliver his friend Polly’s baby. The problem is, Breeze thinks he is the father of the baby—And that Joey and Polly are married.

Fate sure has a sense of humor when it comes to true mates.

Joey’s longing for a mate is finally brought to an end when he meets Breeze. After straightening out their brief misunderstanding he asks Breeze out on a date. She eventually says yes. However, Breeze is afraid to commit to a relationship with Joey, or any other man, because she has been unexpectedly left to care for her nephew, Tristan.

Can Joey persuade Breeze that he can be there for them both? After all, to a shifter like Joey, his mate’s family is his family.

Breeze moved to Bear Creek for a new start. However, her problems followed her. At least her sister’s problems did. When her sister’s marriage implodes Breeze left to pick up the pieces and Tristan comes to stay.

When she meets Joey, she is instantly drawn to him. Breeze doesn’t want Tristan to feel threatened by the new relationship but not falling in love with Joey is going to be hard. He’s the perfect man for her and would be the kind of father figure Tristan has been missing his whole life.

Just as things start to work themselves out, Breeze’s sister and her husband come to town and throw Breeze’s plans into disarray.

Can Joey and Breeze find a way to true happiness? For themselves and Tristan.

This is an adult 18+ story that contains language, possible violence, and sexual situations geared to an adult audience.  A silverback seasoned shifters romance.

I’ve been waiting for sweet Joey to find his mate, he’s been such a good friend and a secondary character in so many stories that I was delighted to see his story being told.

Like most things in life, waiting so long to find his mate has made Joey the man he is today.  He’s great with kids, and if he can he will always volunteer for babysitting duty.  He’s a good friend, even to an ex-girlfriend who has gone into labor early and her mate is out of town because of work – for some, it might be awkward to take an ex to the hospital to have her baby but this trip will not only deliver Polly and Miles’ baby but bring Joey face to face with Breeze, Polly’s midwife – and Joey’s mate.  Unfortunately, Breeze is under the impression that the man who cannot stop watching her, flirting even, is her patient’s husband.  Yeah.  Awkward.

Joey brings one of my favorite residents of Bear Creek his happy ever after with a woman who might need some convincing that it’s safe to love someone, a woman who loves with all her heart once she gives it.  I loved the interactions between Jane and Tristan, kids being kids.  Now Tristan’s parents I’d like to give a stern talking to but… I’ll leave that up to Breeze and a strong reality check for them both.

I enjoyed myself, loved seeing the happy ending for a favorite character… and am intrigued by the gentle hints of what might be in store for O’Malley.  If you love a good Shifter Romance then you should be reading this series.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited Subscription.
