Lewis is cleaning up after a crooked cop. In order to close out those cases, Lewis has to head back to the Brac Pack so that he can interview Evan. He doesn’t understand his sudden attraction to the handsome man but he knows he has no desire to get involved with another good looking cheat.

Lewis’s Dream is the tenth novella in the Brac Pack series. While the layout of each story is similar, wolf shifter meets mate who must overcome his issues, each story is also different. It is usually the mate that brings the difference to each story and that does not change with this one. Lewis is a total change from the type of mate we are used to seeing. He is older, more mature, has an important job and is just as aggressive as the wolves. While I liked the change, it also had me wondering just how this would affect the mates shenanigans but then again, with the trouble Cecil and the others get into, Maverick and the rest of the shifters need all the help they can get. Things are little different with Evan, as well. His act of aggression against his mate results in a separation. Although Maverick’s punishment for Evan is understandable, given the way Evan behaved, it also had me wondering what kind of trouble this would cause the two men, especially with all the issues Lewis had to overcome. There are some light-hearted moments in this story, such as the scene when Lewis meets Keata in his animal form, that keep it from being too angst driven.
The author continues to pull the reader in with each new novella. The characters are entertaining, giving the reader something to look forward to each week. The fact that the author continues to bring the previous characters into the story gives the series a cohesive feel and makes for some fun reading.
