The men of the Brac Pack are becoming used to their Alpha sending them on missions because of his dreams. Those that are sent out usually end up meeting their mates. When Storm is sent to the wharf on an errand for Maverick, he can’t help wondering if this tim,e he is going to be the one coming home with a mate.

Stormy Eyes is book five in the Brac Pack series and tells the story of Storm and Kyoshi. While Storm is a character that readers will know well, it is Kyoshi who the readers are meeting for the first time. This is a character that not only matches his mate quite well, but also makes a terrific addition to the circle of mates. The sex between Storm and Kyoshi is, of course hot, but it is the rest of this story that makes this a great read. The interaction between the two men, as well as the rest of the pack members, will leave you laughing more than once. Just wait till you get to the mates party scene or when Kyoshi and Cecil have a tiff. I could not help laughing out loud.

When this series first started, I found the first story to be good but a little weak. The author seems to be getting better and better with each new addition. While the books may not be everybody’s cup of tea, those fans of shape-shifter stories, especially the ones in which there is clearly an Alpha in the pairing, will love these stories. The characters are always engaging, whether it is the primary couple in the story or one of the many secondary characters. The author usually throws in a few minor twists to keep the reader entertained and wanting more. Stormy Eyes was no exception to this rule. Enjoy the story; it is definitely one for the keeper shelves.
