Secret Chemistry by Chris T. Kat


 Not all werewolf societies are created equal. The one Tim Evans grew up in detests those not of “pure blood”—so when Tim discovers his mate is Jay, a male fox-wolf hybrid ten years his junior, it shocks him, to say the least. Too young to claim his mate and too weak to protect him from the rest of the pack, Tim fears for Jay’s life. When a human gets hold of Jay, Tim believes he has lost him forever.The next eighteen years are hell. Tim devotes his life to his family and running their stable, but anger and depression threaten to consume him. Then fate brings Jay back into his life. Tim knows Jay feels the same attraction he does—mates always do. So why won’t Jay act on it?

This book will grab your attention from the very beginning and keep you interested to the end.  I was so happy that this was shifter novel because then Tim and Jay could bond immediately after being apart for so many years.  Tim is an unstable and sweet alpha male and I wanted him to find Jay so he could gain more control of his wolf again.  Jay on the other hand is a sweet and sheltered young man with no idea what he is.
When you factor in that this is a shifter novel and Jay and Tim have had a connection from when they were children I did not think their relationship was too fast.  Their relationship was by no means easy and they still had to deal with getting to know each other and deal with the prejudices in the pack so I think the romance was well done.
The main plot is not solved at the end of this book leaving room for more books, but we are left with a satisfying HFN for our heroes.  Also at the end of the book the author hints that Tim’s brother, Robin, may be the focus of the next
novel so I am excited to read it and see how the plot develops.
