Colby and Tobias have a lot in common.  If their older brothers have their way, however, the two young shifters are never going to get the chance to see what might come of the attraction that simmers between them. 

Colby and the Little Wolf is the latest addition to The Lost Shifters series.   This story tells the tale of Colby and Tobias, two young shifters who made brief appearances in the past.  I really enjoyed this newest addition.  Colby and Tobias are a wonderful switch from what we normally see in shifter stories.  Both men are the ‘runts’ of their litters and, as such, have older brothers that are going overboard in protecting them.  To Russell’s and Thomas’ credit, they have legitimate reasons to feel the way they do.  I liked that the author paired these two together rather than finding alphas to put them with.  I thought Colby and Tobias made a wonderful pair and liked the way the author allowed them to come into their own.   Although I could understand where Russell and Thomas were coming from, I did have a bit of an issue with their attitudes, knowing how strongly shifters feel about finding their mates.  

Colby and the Little Wolf is a fun, fast-paced read.  The author throws in a lot of intense passion, as well as action.   The coalition, of course, continues to battle not only the Ravens, but also humans as more and more find out about the shifter society that exists around them.  The snarky dialogue that was present in the first story continues to flow from each new story and this one is no different.  More than once, Tobias had me laughing out loud. 

While it is not really necessary to read the stories in this series in order, I would highly recommend it so that you get the full flavor of the characters.
