Adam feels something strong, pulling him towards Ethan in a way he can’t describe. The catch, however, is that humanity doesn’t know about the existence of supernatural beings, and after an eventual romantic tryst, Adam becomes 100% sure Ethan is his true mate: the mate fate intertwined into his life.
With rogue shifters in his pack’s periphery and having to be honest to the person who completes him, Adam is distraught. Will Adam and Ethan find their happily ever after, or will Ethan have a rude awakening to the world of the supernatural?
Rude Awakening was my first introduction to author Frey Ortega and will not be the last. The book was thoroughly entertaining and the characters larger-than-life.
Adam, alpha to a small Manhattan pack rescued a human and discovered the man may be his mate. Adam was stoic and reserved, but open to the emotional upheaval Ethan entering his life would cause.
Ethan’s characterization delivered funny and quick dialogue. His carefree yet socially awkward attitude kept me interested and smiling as he fought through his immediate attraction to Adam and the fortitude to work on their relationship.
My only concern, was the ‘alpha male previously married but now completely okay with discovering a male mate and taking to sex like fish to water’. If the character was supposed to be bi-sexual, then go for it. This in no way detracted from the book~ it’s probably more a personal choice. And, Mr. Ortega explained and clarified throughout the book.
I loved Ethan’s tight-knit group of friends and I look forward to seeing more of them in the future.
Mr. Ortega has captured my attention and I hope to read more of his work.
