As commander of the Brac Pack sentry wolves, Hawk is one of the badest shifters in the pack, next to the Alpha. Once he meets Johnny however, the tough guy turns into a teddy bear for his mate. Will Hawk be able to keep Johnny with him, or does Johnny’s brother have tighter control over the young man?

I loved this new addition to the Brac Pack series. Readers were introduced to both characters in the first story and I wondered just how the author would be able to bring them together. Johnny is one of those characters that the readers will instantly fall in love with. The young man has suffered great abuse at the hands of his brother. This, and the fact that Johnny is supposedly mildly retarded, means Hawk has a few hurdles to overcome in the beginning. The gentleness and care Hawk shows his mate is outstanding, and like Hawk, I could not help but think Johnny’s diagnosis is off. It was wonderful to see Johnny come out of his shell and the scene with the wallets had me laughing out loud.

The story is not without its angst however, as the author makes sure Johnny’s brother shows up to cause a fair share of trouble. More new mates are also introduced, giving the reader a peek at the upcoming stories. Hawk’s Pretty Baby is sure to bring the author, and the series, many new fans.
