Gabriel isn't trying to constantly screw up in the Glenwood Springs pack, but it seems like no matter what he does, everything turns out to be his fault. When he lies to his alpha in order to go into town and hook up with a human, things go from bad to worse. Harlow has had enough and sends him off to a nearby pack to join their ranks. He has a cousin there, so he's not completely alone, but being rejected by two packs in less than six months is a hard blow to his over-inflated ego.
Chris has heard a lot about Gabriel before he even gets to the pack, and none of it is good. While Chris is determined to be respectful because his best friend is Gabriel's cousin, that's as far as he's willing to go, and his patience is quickly wearing thin with each of Gabriel's crass comments. When Chris has enough and hits his breaking point, it could ruin Gabriel's chances of ever finding his place in a pack, or it could end up being the push Gabriel needs to learn how to belong. Regardless of what happens, Gabriel’s life is going to change.
