Tate has a massive case of empty nest syndrome.  With both his brothers now living with their mates, he is starting to feel at loose ends, that is, until he becomes reacquainted with Walsh.  Walsh never thought he would be close to normal again, yet after spending months in rehab, he’s back with his ‘family’ and ready to make things right with the pack. 

The eleventh book in the Wayne County Wolves series, Touching Tate, brings together two characters I have been waiting to see in a book of their own.  Tate is the older brother of Finn and Kline, both of whom have recently found their mates and have become soldiers for their pack.  Although a tough warrior himself, Tate needs someone to take care of.  Walsh is a ferret shifter who has had a rough time of it lately.  Hooked on the shifter equivalent of meth, Walsh is saved from certain death by his ‘brother’ Zaid.  Now he’s back and ready to be a productive member of society. This brings the two men into contact again and the chemistry between them is instantaneous.

I loved this pairing as each man brings into the relationship something the other needs to feel complete.  For Tate, it is having someone in his life that he can take care of, while for Walsh, it is someone who makes him feel as if he is a worthy member of the pack.  The author does a great job with these two and their story.  Fans of this series are sure to love this newest addition to the Wayne County Wolves series.  Readers should know that while some of the stories can be read as stand-alone, this is not one of them.  If you do not feel like reading the whole series, which I would suggest you not miss, then you need to at least read The Omega and the Assassin and In Plain Sight.
