Once Upon A Time, There Was A Wolf….
Gibson Keller's days are fairly routine: wake up early, get some work done, drink lots of coffee, and take care of Ellis, his older brother stuck in wolf form after coming home from the war. It's a simple life made up of long runs on two legs—or four—and quiet evenings…. Until Ellis chases a handsome man off a cliff and into the frozen waters beside their cabin, changing Gibson's life forever.
For Zach Thomas, buying an old B&B is a new start. Leaving behind his city life, he longs to find peace and quiet, and hiking the trails behind his property seems safe enough—right up to the moment an enormous black wolf chases him into a lake, nearly drowning him. Discovering werewolves are real astounds him, but not as much as the man who rescues him from the icy water then walks into Zach's heart as if he owns it.
Loving a werewolf—loving Gibson with all his secrets—has its challenges but Zach believes their love is worth fighting for, especially since his heart knows the big bad wolf is really a prince in disguise

There was something so beautiful about this book that it got my full attention from the start. I was really surprised when I realized I haven't read any of the author's book yet, since I'm interested in a lot of them. This was an amazing first impression that pushed me to read the ones I've been interested in.
Gibson is a wolf shifter, who's not too fond on the term werewolf. He has dedicated the last few years of his life to take care of his brother, Ellis, who was trapped in wolf shape. When a run for his life chase makes Zach meet Gibson and his brother, life takes an unexpected turn. Love starts to makes its way through the heart of Gibson and Zach but their path to a happily ever after is not free of obstacles and they will have to decide if what they feel for each other is worth fighting for.
The title makes me feel this was going to be a little more fairytale-like story than it actually was. I wouldn't mind if the romance would take a bigger part of the story than it did, but I was really pleased with the way the story went. One of the things that I loved the most about it was the strong bond between the brothers. There were a few humorous moments between them that were so delightful. I enjoyed them so much and even though I liked the interactions between Gibson and Zach, it was the brothers who truly got my heart.
The plot was very interesting. There were some expected events but most of the time it was pretty unpredictable. I liked the author's writing, it was easy to be caught in the story and feel empathetic towards the main characters.
One of the few issues I had with it was that there wasn't too much romance. I understand it was due to how the story went that there wasn't a lot of romance, but maybe if the story were a bit longer, there could've been a few more romantic scenes. Still, whatever romantic moments shared by Gibson and Zach were very beautiful and they felt realistic.
Overall, ONCE UPON A WOLF was a great book. Really recommend it to any readers who liked shifters stories with MM pairing. It was very enjoyable.
