Owen still feels as if he doesn’t fit in with his new family. Spending time in an old church is the only thing giving him any peace. That is until he meets up with Garrett again.

I must admit I did a little happy dance when I saw that author Stephani Hecht had come out with another addition to The Lost Shifters series. I was worried that once Mitchell had found his brothers, the series would be finished. However, the author continues the series with A Tempting Distraction, the story of Owen, whom we meet in the last book.

Owen is more complex than he appears. The young shifter, whom most thought was the less damaged of the three that were rescued in the last story, has kept his abuse quiet. Once the readers find out what Owen went through, his actions become more understandable. I wanted to hug him as he tried to handle all the changes going on in his life, especially after his confrontation with his brother, Seth and the coalition leader, Mitchell. The connection between Owen and Garrett is strong and the sex hot. Watching these two get together was fun, however, I could have slapped Garrett when he explains why he takes Owen the way he does.

This is one of those series that readers wish would never end and I am hoping the author has plans to give Shane a story of his own soon. I would recommend that you read the stories in order, as there is a lot of rich history that would be missed otherwise.
