Book one in The Under Wolves Series

Sometimes werewolves are the good guys.

Kaden has always dreamt of cooking. His family scoffs at his wish to help out the war effort and think he's wasting himself joining a pack.

Gage is the Alpha of his pack and loves his mate Russ with everything he has. But, although the beta wolf loves him back, Gage isn't Russ' mate. In a quirk of nature, their bond is one-sided and while Gage holds as tightly as he can, he can feel his lover slipping away.

Russ loves his Alpha, but a piece of him always longs for what could be. He doesn't want to hurt his lover-but how much better would life be if he could have a mate of his own?

Three men with different goals discover the difference between love and mating and how sometimes what you want may not necessarily what you need.

A GAMMA'S CHOICE is one of those books that will hook you in at the beginning but as the plot thickens, the charm starts to peel off. There is humor, hot sex and plenty of originality, but an unfinished story still reads as such, despite the promise of a sequel.

Kaden is a young shifter Omega, who instead of dreaming about having sex day and night, only wants to cook. His family and the community aren't supportive, so he sets out to find his own way by joining a pack and finding a job in their kitchen as they try to prevail in the war against vampires.

Gabe as the Alpha of the said pack is a pretty good guy, but fearful despite his happiness with his mate and Beta, Russ. The mating bond is one sided, and while his Beta is his mate, Russ is still trying to find his own.

They notice Kaden right away and the twists keep on coming, because Kaden might be Russ' mate but Gabe is Kaden's. Their bond is something extremely rare, where they form a triad, pretty bittersweet in my opinion.

I did love the beginning and the triad idea was both original as well as nicely executed. Only I kept on feeling bad for the three of them. It seemed more like an evil twist of fate to pair them in such a way where their feelings would never be returned in the same way from the person they can't live without. I liked the way the author worked around it, making them seem like a perfect match and I did love their general relationship.

What didn't quite work for me was the side plot. I wouldn't have minded reading about the trio for another sixty pages, but the vampire war as well as the illogical kidnaping and all that just didn't have the same enticing touch. The ending was a typical setting for the next book in the series, and while I honestly don't mind it as such, I did need Kaden, Russ and Gabe's story to be rounded up nicely. Another thing to keep in mind is the name switching that happens more than once and it is a bit jarring.

This is one of those series I will definitely follow, partially because I do adore ménages but also because the idea does hold promise. I'm looking forward to more.
