Red River (Pack #2) by Cardeno C. Review

  Red River: Pack Collection, Book 2 by Cardeno C. 2 Stars

wo Alpha shifters join together to lead their pack and build a family.

Commitment, loyalty, and strength aren’t enough to make Wesley Stone’s birth pack accept an Alpha with a physical imperfection, even if it’s a meaningless mark. Putting the safety of his pack above his own wellbeing, Wesley trades himself for another Alpha and agrees to mate with a stranger in a mysterious, insular pack.

Alphas from Jobe Root’s family have led the Red River pack from the first day shifters walked the earth. Now the time has come for Jobe to fulfill his destiny, but to do that, he needs his mate by his side. Spiritual, easygoing Jobe reveres Mother Nature and trusts in fate, yet he can’t help being nervous about how his mate will react to his new life in Red River, his new life with Jobe.

Two Alphas with contrasting personalities, different upbringings, and divergent beliefs come together for the good of their packs. But to stay together, Wesley and Jobe must see beyond the surface and embrace every facet of themselves and their union.

Review

Well, I read the whole thing because of the likable characters but it was not good.

The world building was intersting but as only one hero understood the world and the other hero thought he did but didn’t this aspect of the plot was muddled and annoying at times.

The assumptions and lack of communication made me a bit nuts no matter how much I liked the heroes. How about talking and how about going to see the person instead what ever that was lol.

I liked the end of the book when things were clear much better. I wish that part had stared about 25 percent in

 

Blue Mountain (Pack #1) by Cardeno C. Review

    Blue Mountainby Cardeno C. 3.5 Stars!

Exiled by his pack as a teen, Omega wolf Simon Moorehead learns to bury his gentle nature in the interest of survival. When a hulking, rough-faced Alpha catches Simon on pack territory, he tries to escape what he’s sure will be imminent death. But instead of killing him, the Alpha takes Simon home.

A man of action, Mitch Grant uproots his life to support his brother in leading the Blue Mountain pack. Mitch lives on the periphery, quietly protecting everyone, but always alone. A mate is a dream come true for Mitch, and he won’t let little things like Simon’s rejections, attacks, and insults get in their way. With patience, seduction, and genuine care, Mitch will ride out the storm while Simon slays his own ghosts and Mitch’s loneliness.

Review

I tend to like Cardeno C best when the plots are character driven and we get oodles of couple time.

In this Wolf Shifter Romance, we get a badly emotionially scarred Omega wolf hero and a gentle giant (but really fierce with everyone else) Alpha Wolf hero.

Almost all the book is spent with the Alpha Hero giving the Omega Hero time to trust and heal. It is sweet and lovely.

The world building is uneven but it is a nice read.
