Zeke’s been an enforcer with his pack for years. After returning home from visiting his younger brother Remy, an alpha of another pack, he notices that his pack mates are avoiding him and his even his business has dropped off. Then he learns that his alpha and the inner circle are shutting him out and seem determined to destroy him.

To protect his sisters and their children, Zeke’s forced to flee with them to Remy’s and they barely escape. Being with his brother’s pack means he’s lost all his possessions and bank account, which is devastating. The good news—he meets his mate. The problem—his mate, Ashlock is vampire, and because of a past experience, Zeke fears them. Fate couldn’t be wrong in giving him a vampire for a mate—right?

Piercings and Sandpaper Kisses is the third and latest release in SA Welsh’s Blood Moon Pack Alliance series. Due to the connection of the characters, I recommend the books be read in order.

I was waiting for this new release and wasn’t disappointed. It’s a fun and entertaining read. It has tension, danger, betrayal, anger and fear, mixed in with healthy doses of friends, family, bantering dialogue and sizzling sex. I enjoyed how the previous characters are incorporated into the plot and seeing Zeke and Ashlock’s relationship develop. There are vivid descriptions and a good sense of Zeke’s discomfort around vampires, although it’s nearly the end before the reason behind it is revealed. 

The author did a good job with personality development and I’m always happy when vampires and werewolves are included in a story, so Zeke and Ashlock’s pairing was perfect for me. There are a few surprises along the way but those would be spoilers, so—no—I won’t tell. I hope you enjoy it.
