    If I could give this negative stars, I would.If I could find every copy and burn or erase them all, I would.If I could get back the hours of my life that I wasted on this story, I would Oh, but you read it, BelenI can hear you whisper Yes Yes, I did Long after I should have DNFed this piece of garbage, I didn t I continued to read in rage and in hate.And you know what That s on me I read this without even reading the blurb or the reviews, just jumping straight in after reading Protective Mate That s all on me too Mea culpa I m stupid for just jumping ahead blindly with a series.You see, it s my fault because this series has been almost frighteningly the same A very much rinse, lather, repeat, kind of fine that lulled me into a sense of complacency I just assumed this story would be much of the same And like the saying goes, I totally made an ass out of myself with that thinking.So why did I hate it so much Let me tell you MISCOMMUNICATION and GROSS STUPIDITY view spoiler There are a lot of spoilers here view spoiler I m totally serious I break this down. view spoiler Jake is a 22 year old wolf shifter on semester break from university in Melbourne who s come back home for the holiday He gets into town kind of late and decides to first drop by his best friend Alex s house When he gets there Alex isn t home, but his sixteen year old brother, Patrick, is Jake immediately senses Patrick is his mate Which poses a problem for Jake First, he still has eighteen months of university courses left So taking a mate is inconvenient Second, Patrick is sixteen, which causes a whole slew of headaches as the kid is in school and cannot even drive yet.The two agree to hold off on consummating their mate bond until Jake returns from university, which will also allow Patrick to get a bit older and experience a bit of life Patrick also agrees to keep their mate bond a secret from his family, especially his brother Alex, so they don t get any friction from that quarter They exchange numbers and Jake heads home.Jake decides the one person he ll tell is his father, because he wants someone to look after his mate while he s away Also he figures his father will understand the pull of the mate bond, even though Patrick is a man, being that Jake s father had loved his own mate, Jake s mother, who is dead However, when Jake tells his father his good news his father immediately freaks out and forbids their union His father stood with his face mere centimetres from Jake s own, not once letting up the grip around his throat Jake could barely breathe and what little air he did have drained from his body at his dad s next words Now you listen to me and you listen good Arthur Richmond shook him menacingly before continuing You lay one hand on your so called mate and I will kill the little fucker I don t care who his father is All the blood drained from Jake s face at the same time the air expelled from his lungs Jake couldn t believe what he had just heard You run and tell anyone else that he s your mate and I kill him I will not have a fag for a son, do you understand me Jake could barely move, he was pinned so tight against the wall I have no problem with carrying out my threat against the little shit, so you better take me fucking seriously This is where the story loses all sense of intelligence and devolves into stupidity and idiocy to the nth degree.Does he immediately go to his Alpha and explain everything, including a threat to his Alpha s own son NO.Does he tell his best friend, and future Alpha, of the threat to his brother NO.Does he tell his mate so his mate can be watchful and wary NO.What does he do He calls his mate, and tells him they can t be together with no explanation Listen Patrick, Jake tried again, forcing his throat to cooperate I ve thought about things, and we can t be together He could feel his throat trying to close up and his eyes began to swim I know that, Jay, you said that this afternoon When I finish school and you come back from uni for good, we can be together then The hope and longing in Patrick s voice was evident Jake had to bite his lip, hard, to stop himself from crying.Jake shook his head even though the other man couldn t see him No, Patrick Jake forced himself to continue We can t be together, ever I don t want you as my mate It was the hardest thing Jake had ever said.The quick indrawn breath on the other end of the line nearly broke his heart What The word broke on the end of a sob, and Jake hated himself for putting his young innocent mate through this More than anything, though, he cursed his homophobic father I don t want you as my mate I m heading back to uni tonight Please don t call me No, wait, please, Jay, can t we talk about this We re fated to be together I love you His mate s quiet sobs shattered what remained of Jake s heart.Jake managed to squeeze out one word, No, before he hung up the phone and broke down Jake turned his phone off when he could no longer handle seeing his mate s name constantly pop up on the screen. Then Jake proceeds to ignore Patrick Or, when he can t ignore him, hurt him Over and over and over again His father sends him stalker pictures of Patrick with notes about how he s going to kill him if Jake doesn t tow the line, but does Jake man up and do anything Like tell his Alpha about a very real threat against his son NO.He moons over the pictures He watched silently as the calls came in from his mate day after day He never answered them He wasn t strong enough to do that Jake knew Patrick would want to know why, would want them to be together despite his father, but Jake s dad would never allow that As it was, he d received several pictures from his dad of Patrick as his mate went about his day, unaware he was being photographed.Jake hated the way Patrick looked in the photos, too skinny and downtrodden But he cherished the pictures just as much as he hated them They were the only photos he had of his mate. Finally Jake returns home, and then Patrick goes away to university They manage to avoid or hurt each other over the course of TEN YEARS.TEN FUCKING YEARS.During which time Jake s father stalks and does weird shit to Patrick, including cutting the brake lines to Patrick s car causing him to wreck and nearly be killed AND JAKE NEVER SAYS A WORD Nor does he lift a hand against his father He just refuses to speak to his dad Cause that makes sense.Patrick, wrecked over being rejected by his mate again and again and again, begins drinking heavily to escape the pain He tries to be with other men, but cannot even take a simple touch before vomiting and freaking out He s destined to be alone, because his mate won t accept him AND JAKE NEVER TELLS HIM WHY.Until they re finally forced to be together in order to find answers from another Alpha regarding the pregnancy of Alex s mate, Brian.Then, of course, the truth gets yelled out and all is immediately forgiven.Patrick s family is told and, with the exception of a thrown punch by Alex, all is immediately forgiven.I was floored Seriously Seriously No one says anything about the fact that this man, who is supposed to love and cherish and protect his mate has left him vulnerable all these years This man needlessly caused pain, anguish, and heartbreak for TEN YEARS He needlessly and recklessly put his mate in danger for TEN YEARS And you are seriously opening your arms and accepting him after a single conversation Jake is supposed to be a wolf shifter With a mate bond, unconsummated or not Where are his protective instincts Why not kill his father Turn him over to their Alpha Something Nope Nothing hide spoiler

    I was only going to give this one 2 stars because it treated the women in the book so badly, but I m such a sucker for the they have to stay separated to protect each other trope After reading all 4 books, I can say that the sex in each book was exactly the same It was kinda creepy, considering this is a series about brothers.

    eh the whole reason for rejecting his mate was so weak it was roll your eyes stupid the flashback scene was super annoying IMO it should have been a prologue not a flash back and still it was just roll you eyes view spoiler then after ten years one person says grow some balls and claim your mate and he does and mate is immediately over ten years of misery and rejection first half of book is just Jake playing games with Rick like kissing him then rejecting him again just repeatedly hot and cold then he finally claims him and rest of book is one sex scene after another hide spoiler

    In this final book we gets to read about the Baby brother Rick and the reason why his mate Jake have not claimed him for the last 10 years At the same time it is about the sub plot or co main plot of Brian s pregnancy.I find that Jake s reasoning is rather weak The Big reason was that after Jake told his father that his mate is Rick, the father threaten to kill Rick is Jake ever claimed him Jake s father was also the third strongest wolf in the pack I simply do not understand why Jake did not just tell the Alpha at that time it was the brothers father of this Surely the alpha would be mighty pissed that one of the pack member threaten to kill his baby boy.There were some inconsistency as well, to me at least anyway Jake s intention for than half of the book seems to be about never ever claim his mate assuming that at least until his father died from whatever cause because of his father s threat and his fear that he had been such a jerk to Rick for so long that Rick no longer wants him.So for me the conflict seems weak Jake did not behave like a powerful Beta wolf I suppose I find it hard to believe that it took 10 years to solve this conflict when the it could have been solve much much earlier.

    Well, the series is done and will not be revisited, at least by me This last book was just silly Forbidden Mate Really How about Held At Arms Length for No Good Reason Mate The premise that Jake and the 4th brother, Rick s bonding was rejected by Jake for a remarkably denied for 10 YEARS yet ill conceived reason was just dumb After a couple of years as someone else stated maybe, but once both men had matured and Rick s brother became Alpha and his father was a supportive Alpha , to have continued to deny their bond just made no sense other than the author said so And then in an instant, all that was gone, they bonded, issue taken care of, book over Too bad really because the series had such promise in the beginning.

    I can t believe this shitty plotted reason for 10 years of waiting and staying unmated My advice to this author, stop writing if your imagination for 10 years of misery stops at this plot I m so disappointed I could kick this authors ass.


  7. says:

    The biggest issue that I had with this was the constant rejection and because they are mates then it s immediately forgiven Ten years of torture and daily rejection and there is no consequence Jake could have gotten help Being a part of a pack means you get to lean on each other and help each other out That this wasn t done say much about Jake There was no reason that he couldn t trust in both Alphas who had proven their acceptance and tolerance over and over again.

    1.5 starsWhen I read series I always hope the series gets better and better, I m afraid this is not the case The reason why Jake didn t Take Rick as his mate was so silly that this story is a huge disappointment.You don t expect an alpha mate to be so weak and I was thinking when I was reading this story he really needs to grow some balls Very weak character and very silly story line.


  9. says:

    I waited how long to read this UGH 58% of this was a flashback I could have done without all of that Sure the beginning was fine, but after 10 years it got old Speaking of 10 years TEN FUCKING YEARS Jack you are a douche So he didn t tell Joe or Alex what was going on, not to mention Patrick He let Patrick think he hated him for 10 years It took away from the story for me The reasoning behind the separation was dumb and unbelievable When we finally got to the present it flew by and was kind of focused on Brian and Marcus, which is fine, but I wanted of Jake and Patrick Oh well I cried a lot My heart wept for Patrick.
