I have to admit that this story was not what I expected. It was so much more. I love the entire concept of mates for life. I wish that human beings were created that way, but alas, I have to read my mm books to get my mate-lust sated.
Between carefully placed flashback sequences, we get a clearer understanding of the love that exists between Joshua and Hayden. Both alpha males and heir apparent for both of their packs. Something happens that sends Hayden to prison. In the present, Hayden, once an awkward, but confident, and highly intelligent man, is now angry, resentful, and hateful. The love he felt for Joshua seems to have dissipated and he's lost his way.... well, I guess you can probably figure out that they are each other's destinies. But, the only way for Hayden to overcome his anger, is to remember his past. Once he does, it's all about forgiveness, love, and allowing time to heal old wounds. I have to say that of all the mate theme books, this one transcended the entire concept. I have to admit, there is one scene that I just could NOT take. I had to fast forward through. So, be forewarned that there is a scene that, while I'm sure was essential for us to understand the full extent of the love between these two men, it was too much for me to bare. Regardless, this book confirmed my faith in the love of one's mate, and I am eager to read more by this author. Wonderful read. Credit or no. It's a must-get.

While the writing wasn’t terrible, much of the book came across as generic shifter fare. I get the feeling that the amnesia inciting incident was an idea for a contemporary book, but shifters are a hot topic so the author slapped a relatively weak plotline for a human story into a paranormal book and decided to ignore the gaping plot holes and WTF illogical decisions created when you move this kind of story into a paranormal setting.
Considering the two MCs are the heir apparents of their respective packs, that they are repeatedly described as strong, large, etc and Hayden’s pack/family have money, it makes absolutely no sense not to go to the police. Had Josh told the truth, the physical evidence on his body and at his home would have backed him up and the police would have offered protection, which would add to the protection Hayden would have had anyway since he’s in a PACK and the next alpha. Josh decides Hayden is safer in jail, thinking he killed a man, which is shaky logic by itself because AGAIN they both have packs with territories that are patrolled and no strangers could enter their lands without being scented but ok. However, when Josh admits he feared that the creeps that assaulted them had people in jail that could hurt Hayden, it makes even LESS sense that Hayden would be safer there since Hayden would have no memory and be completely unprotected from being jumped by anyone. The fear and almost absolute power that Josh attributes to these two human men would be more understandable if this wasn’t a wolf shifter story. Josh apparently has NO faith in either pack since he decides human jail is a safer place for his mate. Additionally, the fact that he calls them “two thugs” after they are in jail for something else shows that they have little power or authority over a large group of people so other than intimidation, again how does Josh believe two humans have more power and ability than TWO groups of wolf shifters.
