Title: Steven’s Journey
Author: Lynn Hagen

ISBN: 1610347129

Rating:  4.5 Nymphs
Literary Nymph Reviewer: Critter Nymph 

Steven doesn’t have any other choice but to trust the young man who offers to help him escape his abusive boyfriend.  When he gets to the shelter that’s still being built, he meets the most amazing man, Roman.  Unable to stay away from the handsome construction foreman, Steven wonders if he has traded in one possessive boyfriend for another. 

Steven’s Journey is different from the other books in the Brac Pack series.  For a start, this is the first book in which neither character is a member of the pack, second, this is also the first book without a wolf shifter as one of the main characters.  Steven is a human running from an abusive ex, while Roman is one of the Lakeland’s,  a family of bear shifters who have received permission from Maverick to stay in the area.  Since several members of the pack show up throughout the story and some loose ends from other books are tied up, Steven’s Journey flows perfectly with the rest of the series. 

Readers are sure to find this story entertaining.  There is the strong connection between the two men which the author does a wonderful job bringing across.  There are also many great scenes in this newest release that are sure to have you laughing out loud.  The first time Steven meets Roman in his bear form is just one of them.  New characters are also introduced that are sure to find their way into stories of their own.  And of course, there are the mates.  While there are no outlandish adventures this time around, Cecil’s reputation does proceed him.   

Steven’s Journey makes a great addition to this fun series and will leave you wanting more while you wait for the next installment.
