LGBTQ, Vamps & Shifters Romance
Hawk Magnar, commander of twelve sentry wolves, never thought he'd discover his mate in a hospital for an anxiety attack. Under the illusion he was going to comfort a young child the alpha's mate, Cecil, had befriended, he finds a man who needs more protection than even anyone realizes.
Treated as a simpleton all his life, Johnny Stone has never had anything to call his own - until he meets Hawk.
Hawk must keep his emaciated mate safe from a sadistic brother while teaching Johnny to trust him. Hawk is quickly running out of time to convince Johnny that he isn't out to hurt him when his mate inadvertently starts the mating ritual. Will Johnny give Hawk the trust he needs to bind them together or suffer the consequences that fate's wicked sense of humor has unleashed?

HAWK'S PRETTY BABY, book 2 in the Brac Pack series, keeps the storyline rolling right long. It picks up right where Maverick's Mate leaves off and better introduces us to a character that is quite the dycotomy, Hawk Magnar. Hawk is the commander of the Brac Pack wolves and as such is the toughest of the pack, but the gentle and loving way he cares for his mate surprises everyone.
When Hawk is sent to the hospital by his Alpha's mate to check on his friend from the community center, he expects to find a child, and who should he find but his mate, Johnny. Thrilled to have found his mate and not quite understanding everything that Johnny has endured, Hawk does what he does best, switch into protection mode. Hawk has to work hard and be patient to draw Johnny out of his shell and get him to start to trust the much bigger man.
When Johnny Stone hears, "What's your name, pretty baby?", he is immediately drawn to the giant of a man standing in front of him. Diagnosed as mildly retarded, Johnny has been mistreated his entire life, first by a drug addict mom who didn't want him or know how to care for him, then by a brother that used and abused him. But in Hawk, he has found a hero.
I wish that this story had been longer. It built upon the storyline established in the first book and gave us hints into where it is going next. The couple in this book are both such endearing characters that you have no trouble connecting to them. They will pull at your heartstrings and having you tearing up over the silliest things. (pink sparkly wallets) The growth that both characters go through is tremendous and pulls you right along with them.
The great thing about this series is we don't have to wonder what happens next for Hawk and Johnny, as we get to re-visit them in the next 17 books. I look forward to my next visit to "The Den" and getting to meet even more members of the Brac pack.
