Shared for Love
Disclaimer MaleTAG
Their bond is heaven on earth… but it could tear their pack apart.

Ethan Jager is forced to hide behind a false identity as his pack mates suffer under Michael Tanner’s rule. It’s not his choice; he was born broken, without the primitive urge to breed driving him to pick a mate.

While his wolf sleeps, his heart has chosen for him: Noah, widower and fellow pack dominant.

Everything changes the day Hannah Kagan smiles at him. Lust awakens his wolf – a first. Hannah is beautiful, loyal, kind, everything an alpha male should want. And mating her will allow him to reclaim his pack. It will also leave his soul with a giant hole when he’s forced to rip Noah out of his life.

Hard choices are required of alpha males, but choosing which lover to let go is one Ethan refuses to make. The alternative will not only change the pack, but transform their world… if he can keep his mates alive long enough to claim them both.

Warning: Contains an alpha male whose wolf doesn’t like to share his toys, a dominant female who’s nobody’s plaything, and a beta male who doesn’t roll over for anyone. Also: speed dating, werewolf style. Band-Aids required.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16Angela_s PonderingsTAG

Holy heck that was hot! Corrigan made me a very happy reader by giving me shifters, hot m/m scenes, sexy m/f scenes, super-hot ménage scenes, mating bonds, intrigue, and major action and conflict between the Kagan pack and the neighboring Tanner pack. I devoured Shared for Love in a matter of hours. I couldn’t read fast enough because I had to know how the trio would conquer every obstacle they faced – and there were a lot of them – and I had to know if Hannah’s goal to rid the Tanner pack of their oppressive alpha would come to fruition.

 

As Nic’s sister, Hannah has strong alpha instincts. With Nic claiming the position of Alpha for the Kagan pack in Bridged by Love, Hannah has set her sights on mating a strong alpha male with whom she can oust the current alpha of the Tanner pack and then work to rebuild the pack as alpha mates. Unbeknownst to her, the man she’s chosen is the perfect wolf for the job because Ethan is the last of his line, the Jager wolves, and he’s been waiting to find a female he could mate with so that he can reclaim his pack. And Hannah is that female. But before Ethan can claim Hannah as his mate, he has to end the only relationship that he’s ever had – with Noah. Yet when they meet by accident, Noah recognizes something in Hannah that, as a widower, he never expected to find … his true mate. Of course Hannah is confused after their encounter because she feels the pull between her and Noah, but she also feels the pull between her and Ethan. Even among those wolves who believe in true mates, no one has ever suggested that a wolf can have two true mates, so Hannah doesn’t know what to believe. Fortunately for her (and the reader), Noah knows exactly what to do, and he suggests a ménage relationship between him, Hannah, and Ethan. While Hannah believes that her brother might accept and support their relationship, none of them believe that the Tanner pack will. However, when Ethan reveals to Hannah that he’s not who everyone believes him to be, the trio agrees that they might actually have a chance to change things for the better for the wolves of the Tanner pack – assuming they all live long enough for Ethan to challenge the current alpha.

 

Although Shared for Love picks up after the end of Bridged by Love, it is not imperative that you read book one first. That said, I do recommend doing so in order to get a feel for the pack dynamics and to better understand why Nic is supportive of his sister’s “unnatural” relationship. Having read book one, I could better appreciate the differences between the Kagan pack and the Tanner pack, making it easier to understand why two men would go to such lengths to hide their relationship for over a decade, and why ending that relationship was harder than Ethan expected. This made the angst Ethan was doling out believable because he had nothing but hard choices that were guaranteed to hurt someone he loved no matter what he did. I loved Noah and Hannah’s first encounter and thought it was the perfect way to set the stage so that she would be open to his solution to their mating problems. The chemistry between the trio is smoldering, but it was how their interrupted mating played out that really resonated with me. I loved it! I thought the author came up with a great way for the proper bonds to be forged between the mates. The introduction of Ethan’s brother, Owen, and all that his return brought with it points to some really interesting storylines for future installments, and I cannot wait to get my hands on them. Shared for Love was an excellent addition to the Kagan Wolves series and I’m looking forward to the next book already.
