Jared may have fallen into his occupation by accident but that doesn’t mean he’s not one hell of an assassin.  His job keeps him from visiting family but when his sister gets married, he has no choice but to appear.  Carson is the enforcer for the Stone Ridge wolf pack.  As such, he has had to protect the pack in any way that he could.  But Carson’s not prepared when fate hands him a mate who kills for a living. 

Goading the Enforcer is the latest story in the Wolves of Stone Ridge series.  I’ve loved all the stories in the series but the characters in this one were just great.  Jared is an assassin but there is a bit of a carefree attitude about him.   Carson is the pack enforcer, which means he sometimes has to do things he doesn’t like to get the job done.  You would think that the two men would have a lot in common, due to their occupations, but Carson has a moral compass that is stricter than Jared’s so there are moments that the two clash.  For Carson, the problems grow as soon as he realizes that Jared is his mate.  The men are continually thrown together, however, which gives them time to learn about each other and there is a lot to learn.  The connection between these two is great; I love the way they play off each other, bringing the characters alive for the reader.   

Once again the pack has issues with the scientist and finds themselves on a rescue mission.  New characters are introduced and I can’t wait for the little bunny to get his story.   This is a series that fans of both the M/M and shape-shifter genres are sure to love, and, while each story can stand on its own, I would strongly recommend that they be read in order.
