Curtis is ready to lose his virginity and he knows just who to give it to.  Now if he can just get his dads to give him some privacy.  Chauncey is thrilled to finally have met his mate, especially since he won’t have to worry about explaining shifters to him. But every time he turns around, Curtis’s dads are popping up.  Just what does a bear need to do to claim his mate? 

Curtis’s Dads is the 23rd story in the ongoing Brac Pack series.  While the majority of the characters are ones we already know, their quirkiness keeps the stories entertaining and the readers coming back for more.  Curtis’s Dads is about two of those characters.  When we first meet Curtis, he was a 15 year old boy coming to terms with the changes in his father’s life, as well as the growing knowledge that, like his father, he was also gay.  In this book, Curtis is 20 and ready to experience the sexual side of being gay.  The problem is his fathers and his uncertainty of what to do once he realizes one of the Lakeland bears is his mate.  Both issues are sure to leave the readers laughing but I would advise you not to drink during the scenes where Curtis decides to ask the mates about sex, as these scenes are truly over the top and had me laughing out loud more than once.  Chauncey is all bear, but of the gentle variety, until it comes to protecting his mate.  The connection between these two men shines through clearly for all to see.  The gentleness Chauncey shows his mate is heart-warming but the sex between them is just as hot as any of the other couples.  When Curtis’s past comes out, Chauncey, as well as his brother Chance, truly show their wild side. 

There is the usual mention of the problems faced by the pack and other paranormals.  Just when I think I know what’s going on and who the bad guys are, the author throws in a few new twists and turns, which of course leaves me eagerly waiting for the next book to come out. This book is one I will be reading again and should not be missed.
