Laid-back Loco Remeere lets Cecil, the Alpha’s mate, talk him into helping with a harebrained scheme, but this time Cecil’s adventure leads him right to his own mate.
Tangee Highland works two jobs to survive, and dating is just a far-off fantasy. Rushing in late as usual for his job at a tattoo parlor, he stops dead at the sight of a gorgeous silver-haired man who attracts him like no other. Tangee quickly indulges his desire for silver-haired Loco’s touch, but mating for life is a bit extreme for a first date. He denies Loco, insisting the relationship move slowly.
Everything changes when Tangee’s mother is in an auto accident and the responsibility of his five-year-old sister now lies with him. Will Loco still want him with a kid sister on his hip? Or has Tangee already voided the claiming?
Note: Each book in Lynn Hagen's Brac Pack collection focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, we recommend reading the series in sequential order.

5 CHERRIES: Loco and Tangee’s story is a refreshingly different addition to this series, packed full of emotions and heartfelt story lines that will have the reader invested in these character lives long after the story ends. Tangee is a man who has never fit in anywhere and keeps to himself. He’s a character that is easy to identify with in that he works two jobs to make ends meet, helps support his family, and has no time for a social life. Tangee also has a secret he keeps hidden from the world around him. He’s extremely forgetful and while stumbling in late to work one night he meets a man who could possible answer all his questions and give him a better life. Being knocked down his whole life he isn’t sure he can trust the silver hair stranger who seems too good to be true. Loco is more than excited to finally find his mate but he isn’t sure how to accept his mate's overcautious attitude. Loco is a protector and very possessive, so him being paired with such an independent man is comical. Loco can respect that Tangee wants to pay his own way, but the area Tangee lives is, in Locos opinion, very dangerous. It's sweet that all Loco wants to do is take care of Tangee and take all the hurt and pain from his life. Circumstances change for this couple after Tangee is assaulted one night. Loco inadvertently gets what he wants, Tangee living with him. Tangee moving in with Loco is only a little bit of this story. The story takes off after he moves in and opens up more doors to future stories in this series. The introduction of a young female child adds a refreshing spin to these fierce werewolf protectors. We also get tidbits on the Eastern Pack that neighbors the Brac Pack. Ms. Hagen has really outdone herself with Loco’s Love. This is one story that is a roller coaster ride of emotions not just for the reader but the characters as well. Also the love scenes between Loco and Tangee are very erotic and imaginative, never a dull moment between these two men. Loco’s Love is a must read. Grab a copy of your own. You’ll be glad you did. -- Coreopsis, Whipped Cream Reviews
4.5 NYMPHS: "Loco’s Love is the ninth book in the Brac Pack series. As each new novella is released, the reader is treated to a fun, fast paced read that draws the reader right in and this one is no exception. Those of us who have found ourselves pulled too thin will understand just how Tangee feels. This is a young man who takes his responsibilities seriously and Loco is just what he needs. These two have the instant connection fans of the Brac Pack series have come to expect, however, they have many obstacles to overcome, least of which is Tangee’s family history. There is quite a lot going on in Loco’s Love so readers will be kept glued to the pages. While it is usually the little mates who steal the scenes, this time it is someone completely different. Tangee’s little sister, Melonee, shows up at the Den and has the men, especially Maverick, wrapped around her little finger in no time. Watching the big, tough, shifters with this little one was funny as all get out. There are new characters introduced, some are just secondary characters while others are future mates of the sentries. The reader also gets the chance to catch up with Jasper, who’s now a member of Zeus’ Pack, opening the way for the author’s spin off series, which is coming soon. If you have not yet given this series a try, you really should see what you are missing." -- Critter Nymph, Literary Nymphs Reviews
"It wasn’t completely wolf shifter Loco Remeere’s fault for taking the mates to a tattoo parlor in the city. After all Alpha Maverick’s crafty little mate Cecil could probably con a con man into confessing his crimes. Besides, if it hadn’t been for the secret trip Loco wouldn’t have found his mate working there. Two jobs and little time for sleep would make anyone snooze through an alarm. At least that’s the excuse Tangee Highland is using for being late for work at the tattoo parlor. The tips would’ve been great if he’d gotten there to help with the large group, but finding the man of his dreams in the big, hot silver haired hunk is better, much better. Though Loco is thrilled beyond belief to find his mate he isn’t so happy when Tangee refuses to come away with him or let Loco take care of him. Tangee explains that he’s got responsibilities to an arthritic mother and five year old sister Melonee. Loco isn’t about to abandon his mate to the dangers of the city and he’s still got to tell Tangee about shifters. Little does Loco know that Tangee also has a few secrets of his own and somehow he too will have to come clean. The sooner the better for both of them. Between blazing hot passion one moment and a sweet love story the next, Loco’s Love couldn’t be more delightful. Their budding romance and the various relationships that materialize when Tangee’s family is introduced make for a fun and busy plot. The missing pieces of Tangee’s past are answered which brings great comfort as the issue of lost family is explored here. It’s also a kick to see the guy’s response to a five year old. Loco’s Love is easy, breezy joy." -- Lisa, Joyfully Reviewed
More From Brac Pack
“There has to be something better than this.” Talking to himself, Tangee ate a bowl of cereal and looked around to make sure everything he needed was waiting for him by the door. Setting the bowl in the sink, he rushed out of his apartment, having to come back to lock it.
Why, on a day he was running late, like almost every day, was the bus late? Tangee wanted to scream at the top of his lungs at the injustice of the world. He knew he was spreading himself thin, but what else could he do? He always told himself he was young and could handle it, but lately he wasn’t so sure. Days like today made him want to just walk away from it all, but to where?
“Sorry, Mark.” Tangee huffed as he ran into work. Thank goodness no one was in the shop.
He didn’t need a repeat of yesterday’s money loss.
“No prob. Set up for me. I have someone coming in a half hour.” Mark set off to the office in the back.
Tangee pulled out the equipment Mark would need. The several colors of ink normally used when doing tattoos, fresh needles, gun and an assortment of other things were laid on his work station. He heard the door buzz as someone came in, the client must be early.
Tangee hurried to ready Mark’s area, not wanting to lose this job. His boss was understanding and laid-back, and that was hard to come by. He finished up and ran to the back to tell Mark his customer was early.
“Go get us something to eat while I work.” Mark tossed him a twenty before heading up front.
“Gotcha.” Tangee headed out of the back door and down the street to one of those soul food places. The fried catfish was banging. He already knew to get Mark a corned beef sandwich. It seemed to be his everyday staple.
“Hey, tattoo freak. You cut us in line.”
Tangee looked around to see who the guys were talking to. The only tattooed freak in there was him. Shit, just what he didn’t need. Tangee couldn’t fight his way out of a paper bag, but he wasn’t going to let these guys know that. Why did it seem like no matter where he went trouble followed?
“Sorry.” He stepped back behind the men who accused him of cutting, although he couldn’t be sure if he did. He wasn’t paying attention.
“You can buy our food since you’re being so considerate.” The accuser’s words were menacing and void of humor.
Tangee turned to the side, trying his best to ignore them. His heart was beating out of his chest, and he could feel himself shaking. He hated fighting because he was never on the winning end or it. Tangee thought once he became an adult he would be past all that, but apparently not.
“You hear me?” The prick shoved his hand into Tangee’s shoulder, shoving him back a few steps. Tangee needed to get out of there. He’d hit the hamburger place down the street. Catfish was so not worth this. Turning around to leave, the guy pushed him again while taunting him. Tangee could feel the tears welling up and cursed himself for his weakness.
“Since you ain’t gonna buy my dinner…”
Tangee saw stars when the guy punched him in his eye, and shards of light exploded behind his eyes. Fuck, that hurt. With an instant headache and throbbing face, he took off running, forgetting that Mark had sent him for food as he ran into the back door of the parlor and into the bathroom.
“You okay?” Mark yelled from the other side.
“Yeah,” Tangee yelled back as he looked at his eye in the mirror. It was red and angry-looking and starting to swell already. The headache seemed to be getting worse the longer he stared at his eye. He knew Mark would see, and his other boss at the mini-mart was going to have a fit. Maybe he could wear those black glasses people wore when they got their eyes messed with at the doctor. It would cover it.
Ten minutes later Mark was at the bathroom door. “If you don’t come out, I’m coming in,” Mark threatened from the other side while he jiggled the handle.
Taking a deep breath, Tangee cracked the door open, and Mark pushed it wide open.
“Who in the hell did that to you, Tangee?” Mark roared. His boss was a big dude with tattoos all over. He was tall as hell and muscle-bound. He reminded Tangee of a rough biker.
“No one.” He tried to pull away, but Mark grabbed his arm, turning him back around to access the damage.
“Yeah, I’d like to know as well.”
Tangee’s head snapped to the side. The silver-haired man came to the back, looking at him like he was going to murder someone, with his jaw set and his eyes narrowed. If the boogeyman were real, this guy had to be him.
Tangee twisted his fingers together nervously. “Shit, these dudes down at the soul food joint. Said I cut them and tried to make me pay for their food. Knocked me good when I tried to leave.”
Tangee was humiliated. The guy who haunted his dream last night got to share in his shame. Just great. He couldn’t stop thinking about the silver hair and black eyes, but he could have done without him seeing Tangee in his cowardly state.
“What did they look like?” Mark grabbed his leather, shrugging it onto his shoulders.
“No, it’s okay. You got a customer coming.” Tangee turned toward the silver-haired dream god, “Unless you’re the customer?”
“No, I came to see you. Looks like not soon enough. Description, Tangee.”
He grabbed Tangee up into his arms and carried him through the kitchen and down the hall, kicking the door open.
“That’s the bathroom.” Tangee chuckled as Loco swung around and pushed his bedroom door open.
“I would have taken you in there if I couldn’t find your bedroom.” Loco chuckled with him. He climbed onto his mate’s bed while still cradling Tangee in his arms, rubbing his naked skin over his mate’s body. Goose bumps rose at the contact. Their cocks tapped at one another, both leaking onto Tangee’s lower abdomen. The glistening pool made Loco’s mouth water.
Tangee stayed on his back while Loco was on all fours. Tangee slid down until Loco’s cock dangled above him. “Hmm, what do we have here?” Tangee grabbed his cock and licked the pre-cum off that was still dripping out. “Mmm, tastes yummy.”
“Oh, god,” Loco moaned as his mate wiggled below him, sucking the head of his cock into his mouth. “Tangee.” Loco’s arms threatened to give out as Tangee’s fiery hot hands stroked his cock.
Loco was lost in a world of lust. His mate was sucking the head of his cock with so much enthusiasm that Loco was going to blow any moment. “Tangee,” Loco called out again.
Tangee sucked him down deeper, grazing his sac then rolling them it in his hand, running his fingers over the skin between Loco’s balls and his ass. He pumped his hand around the base, caving in his cheeks for a tight suction. Loco was going nuts as he pushed his cock all the way to the back of his mate’s throat.
Loco yelled Tangee’s name as spurt after spurt of seed bathed the back of Tangee’s hot, succulent mouth. He leaned back and pulled his mate up the bed. “You have a beautiful mouth.” Loco kissed the taste of himself right out of his mate.
“Fuck me,” Tangee breathed. “I need you inside of me now.”
“I plan on tapping that ass.” Loco grabbed the lube, drenching his fingers and sliding them into his mate’s tight entrance, scissoring and stretching until his mate was loose and relaxed. The anticipation was almost unbearable. Loco had to reach deep inside of him for patience he didn’t know he possessed as he took his time preparing Tangee.
Loco wiped his hand on the blanket and then pushed Tangee’s legs back, the head of his cock kissing the tight hole. Loco reached down and grabbed his cock, using the head of it to rub around Tangee’s hole. He could actually feel Tangee’s muscles expand and contract against his cockhead. The anal play was maddening, but the sensation was erotic.
Pushing forward, he could feel the heat engulf his sensitized cock as soon as he entered him. The tight band of muscles clamped down on his shaft, stroking his cock as he worked his prick in inch by patient inch.
“Oh, fuck, yes. More,” Tangee cried, bucking his hips up to take all of what Loco had to give. His mate grabbed his shoulders and pushed down until Loco felt his balls hit his mate’s ass. “So good,” Tangee moaned. His fingers dug into Loco’s shoulders, the sting of fingernails breaking skin only adding to the sexual experience.
Loco pulled back until only the head remained then thrust forward, slamming his pelvis into Tangee’s ass. He pushed his mate’s legs back further, giving him full view of ass swallowing cock.
His prick slid in and out, and Loco watched in fascination. The sight of Tangee’s twin globes drawing up tight to his body made Loco’s teeth ache to nip them.
“Silver.” Tangee’s head thrashed around. “Your cock feels so damn good in my ass.”
Loco snapped his hips faster, those sexual words making his lust shoot up another notch. He could feel sweat dripping down his back as he grabbed Tangee’s ankles tighter. Loco noticed his mate’s toes curling in. How ego-stroking was that?
He knew he wasn’t going to last. Not with the sight below him. Seeing Tangee in the throes of passion was so intoxicating, he could drink that look and get drunk off of it.
He fought to stave off coming so quickly, panting heavily as he concentrated on his lover. Tangee was the most beautiful creature he had ever seen. Loco’s hand caressed Tangee’s soft abdomen, feeling the muscles quiver under his hand.
“Does it feel good, baby? You like my cock in your ass?”
“Hell yeah. You keep talking that way and I’m going to come.”
Loco growled, thrusting harder at the dirty talk. He’d never had a lover verbalize his thoughts in bed, and fuck if it wasn’t a huge turn-on.
“I want to claim you, Tangee.” Loco panted as the need to come grew near.
