This is book 5, and though each of these is probably okay as a standalone, I don’t recommend it. Each book builds on the previous books, and this, more than the others, relies pretty heavily on that pre-existing knowledge.
We have the twins, Grayson and Xander moving up to Alaska to work with two of the wolves from Macon’s pack, Jagger and Taylor (he was the alpha’s son who got caught with Dakota and subsequently got Dakota kicked out of the pack). It turns out, not really surprisingly, that they are the fated mates of Grayson and Xander.
There’s a lot of this story to love. Grayson and Xander are both virgins! who have saved themselves for their mates. The main thrust of the story is simply the two couples finding their footing and falling in love. There are a few external plot devices that serve as a little bit of stimulation, but mostly it’s the guys exploring their new mate bonds.
One thing that was incredibly frustrating to me, however, is the fact that all four MCs blurred into one big lump. None of these guys is different from the other. Hearing the different voices as narrated by the fabulous Greg Boudreaux, helped to keep the Queets boys different from the Alaska boys (the Queets have a vague hillbilly accent) but I had a hard time telling each couple apart. They were just too similar. (The Drakes do drive different cars, though ;) )
In the end, this served to introduce us to Caden Fournier who shows up in the future A LOT but the couples themselves aren’t seen much in the future and don’t make much of an impact here.
It was cute, sweet, sometimes a bit sexy, but more forgettable than other books in this series.
3.5 of 5 stars
I love Greg! He does a fantastic Sabine, he gives Caden’s assistant a fantastic British accent, and even some of the most minor characters have a unique and distinct voice. It’s got to be such a challenge to give voice to this series considering the vast number of people who are all so dang similar! So… Kudos for the attempt! Highly enjoyable and the BEST way to experience this story!

Any additional comments?
While I really enjoyed Greg's narration, I wasn't super thrilled with the actual story.
It didn't help that I was thoroughly pissed over the beginning of the story, but I eventually got over it.
Mostly I just thought there was too much sex. *gasps* I know, what the hell, right?! But...hear me out! I just felt like the super abundant sexy times got in the way of telling any kind of meaningful relationship story.
Too much sex and too little relationship development coupled with the sometimes confusing multiple POV from everyone and their brother, and I was just left feeling a little flat.
