SOFTLY SPOKEN LIES is another solid addition to the Moonlight Breed series. It is an m/m/m shifter love story that involves three very, very different men and a bit of suspense too. In SOFTLY SPOKEN LIES, Gabrielle Evans builds a larger world for her characters, allowing readers to see more of the world in which the characters we've come to care about live in. The expansion on the plot and introduction of new characters keep readers' interest in the series just when it could've easily started to dissolve.

Cousin to the previous book's characters, Blaise Taylor, a hunter for the council and newly appointed Alpha of a pack he knows nothing about, is drawn to two mates. The trouble is that his two mates are male but Blaise isn't gay.

His first mate, Cole, didn't imagine himself mated to a man either but he's not nearly as skeptical as Blaise. He's a bit insecure, but having shared a cell with Willow during their captivity in the previous book, Cole already knows he loves him. Adding a physical dimension to their relationship isn't as much of an issue for him. But Cole realizes he will need to help Blaise accept the mating and bring them all together before their relationship fails. Such an unusual concept in romance to watch the slow evolution of a relationship – and seeing the characters work for happiness – that it enhanced the story.

And when you add in Blaise's second mate, the elf Willow, a whole new breed of the mythological world is introduced. Free from years of imprisonment, sweet and sensitive Willow just wants to be happy and he's found that happiness in his two gorgeous mates. The three are good together and readers can see the natural fit even if Blaise can't see it at first.

While Blaise takes his time to realize that love is more about the person and not their gender, trouble brews around them. A bit timid and definitely the more effeminate mate, Willow arises as the true hero in the book, which speaks to it not always being the Alpha male that saves the day. Great message.
