As the second son, Liam Reed never expected to be a werewolf Alpha. He preferred to develop software for Soft Corp, but when his brother Jason died in a car accident, their father forced Liam to assume leadership of the pack. Liam plans to govern with compassion, instead of ruling through fear, but pack member Bradley Karr undermines Liam’s leadership, biding his time before challenging for Alpha. Tired of pack politics, all Liam wants is to program and find his mate, but he fears that neither is in his future.
When his mate, werewolf Cody Jones, starts working at Soft Corp as Liam’s intern, sparks fly. However, a relationship with Cody could get them both fired for fraternization. And, that’s not the worst problem. Cody doesn’t seem to accept Liam as his mate.
Liam’s only chance at happiness is to win Cody over while keeping their relationship a secret. But really, Cody would never stay with an introverted geek like him, an ineffectual Alpha failing to live up to his brother’s legacy. Would he?
Pretty sure this is my first book by this author and over all I enjoyed it. Nothing to knock my socks off, but I nice read while flying.
Even though Liam became alpha by default, and never groomed when push comes to shove he manages to take care of business. But he is not your Man’s Man’s Alpha but as the blurb suggests he’s not supposed to be and it was refreshing to read one with struggles. That actually needed help and with his mate, coaching, encouragement. Learned to grow and develop.
Cody even though young, and not ready for all the mate thing, seems to take everything in stride and is a great compliment to Laim.
It’s a good start and I hope to see more from Laim and Cody, maybe when they decide to have that baby? (not mpreg)
