Dark, moving and original, a story of family, survival, and getting on with life...
Flynn Sinclair understands pack loyalty – for years as his Alpha father's enforcer, he has done things in the name of duty that he can't ever forget. But the vast expanse of Alaska offers him a peace he's never known. Alone, removed from pack life, he can focus on his research and try to forget his life before.
But duty has a way of inviting itself in, and Flynn finds himself doing two reckless things in one week: leaving the safety of Alaska to save his brother Connor's life, and unwittingly falling in love with Evie Thompson, a woman who doesn't deserve to be drawn into his terrifying world.
Connor carries news of their father's descent into madness, and it looks like neither geography nor Flynn's attempts at disengagement will put off a confrontation. Flynn had finally begun to believe that he might deserve something good in his life – something like Evie – but to move forward in the light, he must first reconcile with the dark.

I agree this isn't a traditional werewolf story. It was hard to read about the brothers childhood. This is the first book I've read by this author. I believe I'll read more.
This isn't the traditional werewolf story, but I loved it. Evie left an emotionally abusive relationship. She moved to rural Alaska to find herself. She wasn't looking for a man when Flynn steps into her life, and even though she fights it, she falls hard and fast. They both have tortured pasts, and there's someone after Flynn and his bad boy brother. I won't say more because I don't want to spoil it. If you love paranormal romance, and better yet, stories about werewolves, this story is for you.
I liked that both leads were broken, and suffered in a similar way. Both Flynn and Evie had been cheated on and humiliated. Flynn knew about being controlled by a sociopathic father, and Evie was controlled by her ass of a ex-boyfriend. Because both of their relationships ended horribly they both separately moved to Alaska to take some time to heal. Unfortunately that is where their good sense ended. Especially Evie’s. The idea that they fell in love after knowing each other for about a week and going on one date was ridiculous, even for Flynn the wolf. There was nothing in the book that said Flynn had some mystical mate sense, and he was engaged in the past. His former mate/fiancé cheated on him and he couldn’t scent it on her, so much for animal instincts. Which means wolf and all Flynn is bumbling through life looking for love like the rest of us. Evie was in a extremely emotionally abusive relationship. When she meets Flynn he is a bit awkward and demanding. That alone should have sent her running for the hills. Instead she declares her love for him in spite of his nature and the danger being with him presents. After one date. I also wish the werewolf thing had been explained. Are only males wolves? Are there other packs? If there are why didn’t any of them intervene and stop Rupert? The book does not end in a cliff hanger, but the source of true danger is not actually dealt with. I suppose it was necessary to leave a villain for the next story. The villain Rupert, Flynn’s father annoyed me because he was just evil for no reason. Everyone has a motivation, insane or not, yet we never get to find out Rupert’s. Rupert just runs around killing or trying to kill people all willy nilly. Although there was a lot to be desired when it came to this story I did like Evie’s best friend Dana and Flynn’s brother Connor. If they are the leads of the next installment I may read it.
