I read both this book and the shorter prequel together. They are written in the light erotica shifter style. Loads of extremely repetitive (more than usual) statements of mine, Alpha, mate, bond. Excessive bouts of jealousy, insecurity, possessiveness and crying. The book would go for chapters with no advancement in the 'plot'. The females in the story were those motherly, kitchen-dwelling, perfect-mom stereotypes you often see in this genre. The MC's would hump each other indiscriminately in front of friends, family and strangers. I was embarrassed for them. They had the intellect of 8 year old boys. They belonged to the 'Pack Valley pack' which struck me as a hilariously unimaginative name.
