The Wolves of Kismet #3
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance, Series
Gavin Lloyd has been a werewolf for ten months, and he’s still trying to get used to it. He wants to settle into a nice quiet life, running his coffee shop with his pack and learning how to be a werewolf. But now people are saying he’s some kind of prophesied werewolf messiah. He doesn’t know how they expect him to help them when he hasn’t even figured out how to help himself.
Miles Parker has lived in Kismet, Colorado his whole life, and up till now it’s been nothing but a simple, mundane existence. Then Gavin moved into town, with his sparkling green eyes and ability to make tea lattes like nobody else.
When Miles gets a call to look into a burglary at his boyfriend’s home on the full moon, though, what he finds there sets off a chain of events that will leave his life completely transformed.
And maybe, somewhere along the way, give Gavin the spark he needs.
I’ve loved this series, and thought this story was a wonderful conclusion to it, although I’d be happy to read more of the Kismet Pack. This story in particular has a lovely feel good vibe about it.
I like how the wolves in this pack don’t follow the norm, in that they are a pack of three alphas and everyone in the pack has equal rights without any of the hierarchy. I like the mix of different personalities too, and how they’ve grown as close as a family. I also love the world building, and the differences in other shifter stories I’ve read, especially around the full moon.
I really felt for Gavin and his worrying about being there for everyone else, yet not being able to be there for himself. He’s really not good with the touchy feely stuff. I thought Miles was a good fit for him with their different personalities although he has a few issues to work through himself.
I loved the way the story panned out and they both got their HEA. I liked seeing the different sides of Miles, and his inner strength, especially in the scene with the wolf cub and the bear. I also liked that the story didn’t shy away from the issue that changing someone to save them is still without their permission, and how it was handled.
Although this story is Gavin and Miles’, it’s still very much about pack and family, and what that means. I liked Gavin’s sister, and the part she plays in her brother’s life going forward. The final scene of the story was very satisfying and very Gavin and Miles.
5 out of 5 stars.
