Ethan Abbatt is considered the weakest member of his pack because he can’t shift. His life is filled with pain and ridicule and he’s tired of it. His extreme answer—death by vampire—doesn’t go as expected. Instead he ends up wounded, almost drained of blood, but finds he’s attracted to the vampire leader, Miguel. When he wakes up the next morning with paws, Ethan knows his life has changed forever.

At more than four hundred years old, Miguel Rodriguez is a strong and powerful vampire and he lost his humanity centuries ago.  Until his chance meeting with Ethan and his insistence that they’re true mates, Miguel’s feelings have laid dormant but the young shifter is hard to resist.  Being together is out of the ordinary but for the two of them, it’s meant to be. The question is whether they can survive the problems trying to keep them apart.

Until Forever Comes is the second release in the Mates series by Cardeno C. and it’s actually a prequel to Wake Me Up Inside.  After meeting Ethan and Miguel in the first book I wanted to know more about them, so I was happy they were the focus of this new release.

It’s a fun and entertaining book with a steady pace, a surprising amount of tenderness, considering Miguel’s bad-ass attitude at the beginning, and some vivid world building. Both Miguel and Ethan have well developed personalities and they blend together nicely as a couple—and their chemistry—it’s sizzling. There are several seamlessly placed secondary characters but I enjoyed Ethan’s sweet sister, Crissy, the most. That’s not to say a number of those other characters don’t supply some needed action and danger—so watch out for troublemakers.

When I finished Ethan and Miguel’s story, I had to immediately re-read Wake Me Up Inside again. And I enjoyed it just as much the second time as I did the first. I hope you enjoy this paranormal romance as much as I did and I look forward to the next one.
