Richard follows his younger brother to the Tamang Pack, never realizing that, like his brother, he would find his mate.  But Richard’s mate turns out to be the new alpha and, with the pack already at odds, Richard feels it would be best to stay away from his mate for the time being. 

Unwrapping the Alpha’s Mate is the newest addition to the Kontra’s Menagerie series.  This story is a little different than some of the previous ones.  For starters, both men are shifters from the same pack, although one is a recent addition.  While you would think this would make their mating an easy one, due to the current circumstances in the pack, the men are unable to mate until the inner circle has been established. 

This little twist makes Unwrapping the Alpha’s Mate a refreshing change.  The connection between these two men is intense and the fact that Richard kept the fact that he and Abbott are mates a secret, means when the time came for them to come together, Abbott was out for a little revenge.  But while their mating may now be on track, that does not mean everything within the pack is going okay.  With more than one member looking to cause trouble, Abbott and Richard will have to keep their eyes open.

Although Kontra and his men, who were staying with the Tamang pack, are planning to once again hit the road and taking Abbott’s father with them, I hope that the author will return to the Tamang pack so that readers are given the chance to see how things there play out.  Unwrapping the Alpha’s Mate was a good story, and one I plan to re-read in the future.  Like the rest of the books in this series it could be read as a stand-alone but I highly suggest reading the books in order.
