Maverick Brac has formed a pack of his own, naming them the Brac Pack. With fourteen men under him, they all have one thing in common, the preference for men.

Cecil Walter was living a life no one would wish on their enemy in an abusive relationship with his partner with no way out.

Getting away from pack problems and a migraine, Maverick indulges in his one secret love, Chai tea. While in the coffee shop trying to forget the world outside exists for five minutes, Maverick has found what he never thought to have, his mate, his very human mate. Rescuing Cecil from his abusive boyfriend to finding out who in his pack is trying to take Cecil's life, Maverick has his work cut out for him, but the largest challenge is getting Cecil to come out of his shell and be the man he once was.

MAVERICK'S MATE is the first book I have read by Lynn Hagan. As a fan of paranormal stories, I was quite excited to read this story. It is a decent size, enough to develop characters and to tell a story with a full plot, but not so long as to drag or feel overwhelming.

The story follows Maverick Brac, the leader of his own werewolf pack. From the start, he meets Cecil Walter who is trying to get out of an abusive relationship. When Maverick sees Cecil, he immediately recognizes him as his mate. The two meet, fall in love, and then a series of events take place which threatens the two lovers.

Ms. Hagan did a wonderful job of developing her characters. Both Maverick and Cecil had depth and larger-than-life characteristics, which made them likable and exciting. Unfortunately, that is where my enjoyment of this book ended.

While I am accustomed to werewolves finding their mates immediately attractive and falling into instant love, the speed with which Maverick demanded that Cecil move in with him was unsettling. We then meet his pack who takes to Cecil right away, again something I have come to expect.

We then encounter three separate obstacles which pose threats to Maverick and Cecil's happiness, one of which jumps out as the obvious problem that will eventually have to be overcome. While I could feel the care that Ms. Hagan put into the characters and the story development, the conflicts felt a bit forced and the conclusion a bit too predictable for my personal taste.
