It’s been months since anyone at the Committee has had any contact from the O’Connell family or their pack members, and they are not happy. Suspicious of the activities that took place in D.C. and determined to find out what the wolves are up to, the Committee recruits one of their newest residents, Doctor Matthew Dietrich, to play the part of neighbor and infiltrate the family.
Matthew has always been a keep-to-himself kind of person. Though idealistic and optimistic, he prefers to work in solitude, at night, while he researches the findings that he hopes will one day change the world. When he’s approached by the executives of the Center, he has no idea why they’d choose him. And to say he is skeptical over the concept of men that can shift into wolves would be an understatement. Until he meets his new partner, the man that will play the part of his “husband” in the Committee’s scheme, Doctor Gavin Strauss.
Book three and I would suggest reading all three in order.
What I noticed first and enjoyed most about this one was we left the ‘family’ alone for a while. Don’t get me wrong, of course Randy, Lyle, Vaughn, Rafe are around but we added Gavin and Matthew to the mix.
Matthew has started working at his dream job and is handpicked for a special project. Problem is that project turns his world upside down. And his nice and orderly way of thinking and life is no more. Gavin is brought in by the lab to help Matthew research this new project.
What I loved about this, even though Matthew and Gavin were living together under the pretence of a married couple, they had a slow getting to know you period. That made us fall in love with them. As they fell in love, all the while plotting and planning to save Wolf and rid the area of the bad Vamps.
I enjoyed how we got to know and learn a little more about Rafe and his abilities. How they are affecting the relationship not just with Lyle but with the whole family.
The end of the book was probably one of my absolute favorites. All the headlines, the bylines, the comments from Matthew and crew, just so well but together, even though you weren’t sure it was going that way. Happy it did.
