The premise of this book held a lot of promise, but unfortunately, inconsistencies in this story was its downfall.
Benji is a lion shifter and has been rejected by the man he knows is his mate, so he leaves his pride and moves 300 miles away to try and start over. Instead of his farm being a safe haven for him, he is continually beaten up by the town bully who just happens to be the brother of the sheriff. When a local lion calls Stellan and informs him that Benji is in trouble, the Alpha sends Kody, one of his enforcers, to check on Benji. Once Kody sees the trouble Benji is having, all he wants to do is protect the man. When Stellan finally arrives and the men realize that they are a triad, that's when things really go to hell.
After everything that Benji had been through, he should have come across as sympathetic; instead he just came across as pathetic. Stellan came across as having multiple personalities; he flip-flopped so much. Kody was the only saving grace of the trio, as he was strong and protective and level headed.
My biggest problem with this story wasn't the characters but the inconsistency in the storyline. The whole Alpha mates have no scent… then they do but NOT to the Alpha… then we flipped back to no scent at all. The Alpha mates weren't supposed to be able to shift until they were claimed but Kody was able to shift and nobody said anything about him not having a scent. It was also never explained why Benji was such an outcast in his pride even before Stellan became the alpha.
I am usually a big fan of Stormy Glenn but this story just didn't work for me.
