5 ANGELS: "Alex's life hasn't been easy. When his father uncovered his secret, he attempted to have him committed, but when that failed he was sent to live with his cousin Tater's family. Alex has been playing it safe basically hiding in his room trying not to make waves. He can't believe when Tater asks to spend time with him for no reason, since everyone else in his life has turned against him already. Tater had to do some fast talking when Alex misunderstood him when Tater asked if he wanted to talk to his friend Taylor. Alex agrees to go into town, but when the car dies the most gorgeous man comes to their rescue, Gavin Lakeland. Gavin can't believe that he has finally found his mate, Alex. Alex has never had anyone who shows interest in him and he is astonished when Gavin really wants to see his ant farm, but how will Gavin react when he learns Alex's secret? I was instantly drawn into Alex's story from the start. His passionate and feisty character held me riveted. It is sad how some families can't accept their children, but to turn them out like Alex's family did is unacceptable! If one person reaches out, like Tater did with Alex, people's lives can become that much brighter. It is wonderful how family is one of the most important issues in this story and family can be by blood or by choice. I loved how the leaders of the area groups, be they packs, covens, or demons, came together uniting the many different series that Ms. Hagen is writing, giving her books a continuity unusual for many different series." -- Teresa, Fallen Angel Reviews
4.5 NYMPHS: "With family either ignoring him or trying to have him committed, Alex has had a hard time of it lately. With everything going on around him, he finds it hard to trust the big man who shows up to help him and his cousin when their truck breaks down. But Gavin has no plans of letting his mate get away from him now that he has finally found him. Alex’s Secret is the latest addition to the Brac Pack series. This story was fun to read. I loved Alex and his little idiosyncrasies. It was also fun watching Gavin, another of the Lakeland bear shifters, figure out ways to handle his little mate while ensuring Alex knows that he is loved. When Alex’s secret is finally revealed, it has the opposite effect that Alex had been expecting. Not only does Gavin find it hot, but the acceptance of his new family goes a long way to making him feel secure in his new home. The new relationship between Gavin and Alex does not always go smoothly, however, as problems continue to plague the Brac Pack members and new information is revealed about the paranormal drug that seems to be making the rounds. Readers of Ms. Hagen’s various series will most likely see these problems show up in the other books as well. Alex’s Secret will hold the readers interest while continuing to move the series along. Readers will find the introduction of new characters also keeps the series fresh, making each new book a must have. While it is possible to think of each book as a stand alone, the stories flow easily one into the other and I would recommend reading the series in order." -- Critter Nymph, Literary Nymph Reviews
Gavin chuckled at his mate. Alex wasn’t paying his words any attention from the look of lust on his face. He could see his mate’s erection clear as day. He kissed his way back around his mate’s neck and then took his soft lips in a heated kiss as he unsnapped his mate’s jeans. “I want you, Alex.”
“Want,” Alex agreed.
Gavin snaked his hands into Alex’s jeans, pushing past the waistband as his hand curled around an impressive erection. Alex moaned into his mouth, his hips following Gavin’s hand.
Gavin broke the kiss and rocked back, his eyes hooding at the sight before him. The head of Alex’s cock was engorged and leaking, inviting him to taste a sample.
But Gavin knew a mere taste would never do. He opened his mouth and took Alex all the way to the back of his throat.
“Oh holy hell,” Alex shouted as his hands shot out, grabbing the grass below him as his ass lifted into the air.
Gavin smiled around his mate’s cock. Just knowing that he was pleasing his mate was going to make him orgasm in his jeans. He used his throat muscles to work Alex’s cock, making his mate scream his name. The sound was music to his ears.
Gavin pulled at Alex’s jeans, needing desperately to get to Alex’s hole. Alex kicked his legs, trying his best to assist Gavin. Once the pants were lying on the grass, Gavin pushed his mate’s legs back and allowed a string of saliva to escape his mouth, coating Alex’s ass.
His finger pushed past the barrier as he swallowed Alex once again. He couldn’t seem to get enough. A second finger joined the first as Gavin backed off slightly. Alex was close, but Gavin didn’t want him to come so soon.
He sucked the head as a third finger was inserted. Alex was whimpering as his head thrashed from side to side. Gavin’s chest expanded with pride. He was making Alex writhe underneath him. He was the one responsible for making his mate feel so damn good.
Gavin removed his fingers and then shoved his jeans down his thighs. “I’m about to fuck you into the earth.”
“Yeah, earth,” Alex panted as his legs spread apart for Gavin. He grinned as his mate’s glazed eyes tried to focus on him. Gavin grabbed his shaft and drove his cock deep, stilling to allow his mate’s body to adjust to his wide girth.
His muscles tightened as his body shook. Alex was so fucking tight that his own body begged to move, to thrust, to do something besides stay immobile. Alex let out a deep breath and then nodded, giving Gavin the go-ahead that he needed.
His muscles unlocked and his hands slid under his mate’s ass, lifting it higher as he plunged into Alex’s tight hole repeatedly. Oh god, his gums ached to bite his mate. He had to forcibly restrain them from descending as his bear roared inside of him, glorifying in the fact that he was claiming Alex.
“Bite. I need to bite,” Gavin begged as he pulled his cock back until only the head remained and then drove back in.
He wasn’t sure if it was instinct, but Alex turned his head to the side, showing off that beautiful pale skin to Gavin, giving him full access.
Gavin moaned as his canines sank deep. He became mystified when his claws extended and his hands tried to change into paws. Never in his life did a shift occur without his mind being fully on board.
Alex only mewled when his nails grazed his ass, his legs swinging out and landing on Gavin’s shoulders. He could see goose bumps rising on Alex’s skin from the scraping sensation. Gavin grunted, lightly grazing his claws over his mate’s skin as he fucked his tight ass.
Alex grabbed Gavin’s hair as he released his mate’s neck, extracting his canines and sealing the wound. They were bonded now, mates for life. It wasn’t the biting that had bonded them, but the sex. And what great fucking sex it was.
