Buck Frazer has been a lot of things in his life – a Marine, a firefighter, human. And now, after an unwanted bite, he’s a motherloving werewolf. With wings.
He’s supposed to be enjoying his hard-earned retirement, not waking up naked on rooftops. But the feral furball sharing his skin wants to be part of a pack. And no matter how hard he fights, it keeps dragging him to one place: Camp Thunderbird. A secret summer camp for shifter kids… which is in desperate need of a camp counselor.
Two months wrangling a pack of hyperactive nine-year-olds who poof into fur every five minutes. Buck would rather swallow ground glass, but his personal curse isn’t giving him a choice.
Only one thing could make this worse… and she just said, “Hi! I’m your co-counselor!”
The gorgeous woman with the sunny smile is the last thing he needs – now, or ever. Even the damn kids can see the connection between them (and are way too keen to give fate a helping hand, as if he didn’t have enough problems already). Her briefest touch has the beast in him howling for release.
She’s his motherloving mate.
And she doesn’t… seem to have… noticed?
Which doesn’t make a lick of sense. Buck knows shifters (not that he is one, thank you very much). The moment they meet their mate, every other thought falls out of their tiny skulls. And Camp Thunderbird is shifters-only; no humans allowed. The infuriating woman must know she’s driving him mad. She has to be a shifter…
Welcome to Cub Camp. It’s going to be one wild summer…
Authors note: Buck first appeared in Fire & Rescue Shifters: Wildfire Crew, but you do not need to have read that series to enjoy this book. But if you have read the Wildfire series, you’ll see some familiar faces at camp…

Title: Stormwolf Summer
Series: Shifter Cub Camp #1
Author: Zoe Chant

My Rating: 4.5
Stormwolf Summer begins the Shifter Cub Camp series, which is part of the larger Fire & Rescue Shifters world. I had an absolute blast back in this world! Buck is so ridiculously sexy and stubborn (and often clueless) that his refusal to believe in his other shifter half is both funny and sad at the same time. He might have been around shifters for a lot of years, but he obviously didn’t pick up on the “shifters can be motherloving idiots” when it comes to recognizing or acknowledging their mates. His constant battle with his animal is a compelling part of his personality, even though the situations he finds himself in because of that furball are his own fault for not acknowledging their connection. I think the most emotional part of the story, for me, was Buck’s ultimate inner conversation with his animal, where he finally accepted his part in the pain they had both been feeling. The guy might be a silver fox sexy shifter… but his unique animal is indeed a very real part of who Buck has always been.
Honey is perfect for Buck, but it’s not going to be an easy process of falling in love for these two since Honey has no idea that shifters even exist… which is a real problem at a summer camp exclusively for shifter kids. I loved Honey; her compassion, her hidden strengths, and her love for these shifter kids just shines through.
If you’ve read the other connecting series (as I have), then you’ll note some familiar faces here. I enjoyed getting a glimpse of their lives today. In all, without spoilers, I completely enjoyed this one and can’t wait to dive into Pegasus Summer on release.
