Mark has sold his tattoo shop and is planning on running the garage his grandfather left him. Before starting his new life, he decides to spend some time with Loco and Tangee, never expecting that the young man he meets while visiting the den will have him changing his plans once again.

The Brac Pack that Ms Hagen has based her series on is made up of several layers. There is the Alpha (Maverick), the Beta (Kota), the Commander (Hawk), and finally the Sentries, whose duty it is to protect the packs mates at all cost. Each of the stories has left the reader entertained as the wolf chases after his mate. With the exception of a couple of the mates, most have been the submissive partner in the relationship. However, in Mark’s Not Gay, the eleventh story in the Brac Pack series, the author has once again turned things around.
Caden’s and Mark’s relationship starts off with a small hiccup when Caden realizes that Mark is straight. The following scene, in which Caden runs to Maverick for advice, clearly shows just how young and inexperienced the wolf is. The attraction between Mark and Caden is intense, however, and it is not long before the two come together. With Mark introducing his pup to the kinkier side of things, the pages get hot. As the men start their relationship, there are a few tough moments that will leave the reader anxious to see what happens next. .

As always the bored mates, who happen to talk Caden into joining them, are up to no good. I actually felt sorry for them when their cow adventure did not go as well as they hoped. This little outing also brings a lot of problems to the forefront for Caden, resulting in some changes in the pack. As each new novella comes out, the reader is sure to add one more favorite to their keeper pile.
