Tristan has been trying to turn his life around, hoping to make his brother proud.  When he meets his mate, he’s thrilled.  But if Tristan claims him it could cause problems for his pack. 

Tristan’s Despair is the latest addition to the Shifters’ Haven series by author Lavinia Lewis.  The story picks up with Tristan trying to cope with the effects of his attack.  There is also the fact that he and his brother are struggling to get along.  While he hopes to find his mate, he isn’t really holding his breath.  When he does meet the man, not everyone is happy about it.  I was a little surprised by everyone’s reaction to Joey being human and Tristan’s mate at first.  But as the story progressed, I could understand it, as Joey is not only human but a reporter as well.  Both things that could leave the pack open to danger.  What no one knows, however, is that Joey already knows that Tristan, and most likely the others, isn’t human.  The way Joey finds out about Tristan is a refreshing change and one I am sure the readers will like.  Joey’s misconceptions are sure to leave you laughing.

There is chemistry between the two young men and when they come together, they really heat up the pages.  In no way does their relationship go smoothly and the author really had me wondering just how this relationship would play out. 

The men’s relationship is not the only focus of the story.  The author continues a mystery that was introduced in the last book.  The twists that occur are sure to leave the reader guessing, as well as leaves the door open for future stories.  

Tristan’s Despair is a well written story that fans of this author is sure to love.  If you are new to this series, however, I suggest you read the stories in order as there is an underlining thread that runs through the books.
