Alex’s Secret

Title: Alex’s Secret
Author: Lynn Hagen
Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand
ISBN: 1610347374
Genre: {M/M}, Paranormal, Series
Rating:  4.5 Nymphs
Literary Nymph Reviewer: Critter Nymph 

With family either ignoring him or trying to have him committed, Alex has had a hard time of it lately.  With everything going on around him, he finds it hard to trust the big man who shows up to help him and his cousin when their truck breaks down.  But Gavin has no plans of letting his mate get away from him now that he has finally found him. 

Alex’s Secret is the latest addition to the Brac Pack series.  This story was fun to read.  I loved Alex and his little idiosyncrasies.  It was also fun watching Gavin, another of the Lakeland bear shifters, figure out ways to handle his little mate while ensuring Alex knows that he is loved.  When Alex’s secret is finally revealed, it has the opposite effect that Alex had been expecting.  Not only does Gavin find it hot, but the acceptance of his new family goes a long way to making him feel secure in his new home. 

The new relationship between Gavin and Alex does not always go smoothly, however, as problems continue to plague the Brac Pack members and new information is revealed about the paranormal drug that seems to be making the rounds.  Readers of Ms. Hagen’s various series will most likely see these problems show up in the other books as well.  Alex’s Secret will hold the readers interest while continuing to move the series along.  Readers will find the introduction of new characters also keeps the series fresh, making each new book a must have.  While it is possible to think of each book as a stand alone, the stories flow easily one into the other and I would recommend reading the series in order.
