Tryck never wanted to settle down with any pack but at his brothers’ urgings, the Brac Pack became their new home.  As far as Tryck was concerned, the only good thing he got out of the deal was the Alpha.  There was just something about the big man that made Tryck want to drive him crazy.  Then Tryck met Carter, his mate, and the wolf found a whole new distraction. 

Carter’s Tryck is the seventeenth addition to the Brac Pack series and the first book about the Santiago brothers.  Tryck is the oldest and as such, carries all the attitude and sense of responsibility the position requires.  He is also very much a prankster, which is evident by his interactions with Maverick.  Carter is a Wood Elf, whose people are at war.  Looking for refuge, Carter asks Maverick for sanctuary for his people.  It is at this time that Carter and Tryck meet, much to Maverick’s delight.  Unfortunately, the wolf does not make a good first impression and Carter’s shimmering out is totally understandable, given the way Tryck behaved.   

As fans of the series know, the fates have a habit of giving the wolves mates in need of help and Carter is no exception.  The two men mesh well together and the author brings their passion and need for each other out wonderfully.  I loved the way Carter kept referring to Tryck as Biker Bob, as well as the way Tryck fell so heavily for the wood elf.  But, as can be expected, the two men soon run into problems, as both old and new enemies rear their heads.  During the course of this story, the author continued to mix just the right amount of romance and action in order to keep the readers attention.  I am sure Carter’s Tryck will find its way to many keeper shelves, as it leaves the reader wanting to learn more about the Santiago’s.
