[#381 Siren Everlasting Classic ManLove: Erotic Alternative Paranormal Romance, M/M, werewolves]
George has had enough of men and his old life. As a cowboy, he'd been run off enough ranches for being gay. In his new life as a diner cook, he's more than happy to play it straight. Ladies love his cowboy swagger, he loves his solitary job and his tiny apartment, and all seems to be going well—until his eyes land on a gorgeous man so unlike anyone he’s ever seen.
Tank loves all the little mates running around the estate, but the gentle giant longs for his own mate to hold at night. The moment he meets the new cook, he’s smitten. But flowers and candlelight dinners don’t seem to be enough to convince George that giving himself to Tank doesn’t have to mean giving up his manhood.
When vampires attack George, Tank must help care for him. Will George finally see that the strongest love just might be between two strong men?
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.

4.5 NYMPHS: "From the beginning, readers know George’s Turn, the latest story in the Brac Pack series, will be different from the previous stories. Tank is larger than life but, as gentle as he is with the little mates, he needs someone who can stand on their own. He’s found that person with George. George has not had any positive experiences with being gay so, with his recent move, has decided to keep his preferences to himself. Of course, that doesn’t last long once he meets Tank. George is different from the previous mates in many ways, but the most noticeable ones are his age and size. Slightly older and taller than the other mates, George is more than able to take care of himself. The first time this became necessary had me laughing out loud because those two vampires never stood a chance. But being as strong as he is makes for some problems, especially when it comes to Tank claiming him. When the men work out their differences, they come together beautifully. There are also some new problems for the pack. Not only do they have a few rogue werewolves to worry about, but now some rogue vampires have moved into the area. Then there is the mischief caused by the mates, who only wanted to help Tank and George. All in all, the reader is sure to find enough going on in George’s Turn to stay entertained until the last page." -- Critter Nymph, Literary Nymphs Reviews

4.5 CHERRIES: "Can the tough, warrior wolf Tank handle a totally drool-worthy cowboy mate who refuses to play the submissive? The manly George must deal with his muscularly endowed suitor and his own need to dominate before finding peace with Tank as well. The Brac pack stands to gain a singular mate in George, but will he cooperate? Each title in the Brac Pack series can be read alone, as the rules of mating and previous major events are explained in each book. Events also intertwine between books giving each episode a different take as it is seen through the eyes of different characters. This week was Tank's story and George is introduced as a headstrong, although, cautious cowboy who was jaded through previous disasters with men. Tank, who is quite the protector in the previous books, had to learn to give a lot in order to earn the trust of his skittish mate. It's always a pleasant surprise to find manlove books about two strong, and real men vying for control. In fact, the name of the book is a humorous allusion to the need for control. The banter between the two protagonists is hysterical at times. Even more amusing is the developing friendship George has with the other mates at the Alpha's compound. They even have a maddening showdown with squirt guns that made me laugh out loud. The smaller, and traditionally more submissive mates show their loyalty and determination to support their newest member. It's endearing to witness the growing bond of these men who must learn to live together and learn how to live in the world of the paranormal. The lovemaking was definitely explosive in nature, almost like thunder and lightning. There were sweet and emotionally charged moments as well, but the two dominant "man's men" took a long time to get to that point. As their romance evolved, it was evident how much their love meant to each other. The editing was done well and there were very few spelling and grammatical errors. There are plot lines left incomplete due to the nature of the series, but the happily ever after is solid and was not left hanging. The pace of the book was maintained throughout and was obviously well planned. There are at least twenty books in Ms. Hagen's Brac Pack series so lovers of M/M romance will be happy to hear that George's Turn was not nearly the end of Tank and George's story. I have this series on auto buy and gladly recommend picking up this book as soon as you can. I'll end with my favorite quote from this book that really shows how acceptance can change a person, “It was scary as hell coming out of the closet for all to see, but with Tank at his side, he braved it.” -- Edelweiss, Whipped Cream Reviews

“How do we do this?”
Fuck yeah! He felt as though he’d just hit the lottery. Tank pulled George into his arms, laying him gently down on his back. “Just let me love you.” Tank crawled over George. “Just once.” His body trembled, and his hands shook as he feathered his fingers over the cowboy’s tanned face.
George nodded and pulled Tank down for a scorching kiss. George wrapped his legs around Tank’s waist and opened his mouth for Tank’s exploration. As good as this was, Tank didn’t want to waste time. The fear of his mate changing his mind had him moving away from the kiss.
Tank pulled back and unwrapped his mate’s legs, pulling his T-shirt over his head and disrobing the rest of his clothes. He really didn’t want to rush things, but his stomach knotted thinking of the man changing his mind at the last second.
George’s eyes widened. “Is that a side of beef hanging between your legs? Oh, hell no. I think I may have changed my mind.” George gulped audibly while staring at Tank’s cock.
“Don’t. Please. I won’t hurt you,” Tank pleaded as he reached down and pulled George to his feet, kissing his neck as he unsnapped his jeans, fishing his cock out and dropping to his knees.
“Tank,” George croaked out as he pulled his shirt from over his head. Tank looked up into his mate’s eyes, seeing the hesitation, fear, and lust burning in them. What had George been through to become so terrified of giving himself over?
“Just once,” Tank whispered as he swallowed his mate’s cock.
“Oh, fuck.” George’s head fell forward, grabbing Tank’s shoulders as he swung his hips back and forth. Tank growled and applied suction, fucking his mouth on George’s cock.
“Tank.” George moaned. It sounded like an angel spreading its wings to Tank’s ears.
His tongue danced with George’s cock in a duel of seduction. Tank was now hopelessly addicted.
The coiled tension in his gut was too much, and Tank needed to claim what fate had given him while George was in agreement.
His mate cried out when Tank released him. That sound was like a symphony on a warm summer’s night. “Strip,” Tank commanded, and George didn’t hesitate. He tossed his clothes off of his lean and—fuck, it was gorgeous—body, and crawled up on the bed, then lay on his back and grabbed his hardened shaft. Tank’s body hummed at the sight before him.
“You gonna finish?” George smiled, and Tank lost the ability to breathe.
“Your smile must bring out the sun every morning.” His mate’s skin flushed, and there was never a more beautiful sight in heaven or on earth.
Tank smiled and crawled between George’s legs, lowering as he took the cock down his throat.
“Yes, Tank.” George hitched his hips, grabbing Tank’s head as he pumped rapidly into Tank’s mouth.
Tank wet a finger then pushed gently into his mate’s ass. Knowing this was the first time the cowboy was being breached, Tank let his finger rest while he squeezed George’s shaft. He ran his tongue up the length of George’s shaft then crooked his finger
“Holy fuck!” George shot down Tank’s throat, his back arching off of the bed. He drank his fill of his mate’s seed until George had no more to give.
Tank didn’t stop. He licked and sucked his way down until he lapped at his mate’s balls, inhaling the strong scent of pure man between George’s legs.
“I don’t think I can survive until sundown if you do that again.” George panted out.
“Like that?” Tank grinned around his mate’s balls, sliding a third finger in.
“Whoa. If you hadn’t noticed, your fingers are the size of sausages. Easy, boy.” George moved a little to the side. Tank was afraid his cowboy was feeling a bit full and uncomfortable. “Relax, it gets better. Promise.” Tank once again found George’s prostate and slid his finger across, his mate hissing and bucking his hips. Tank leaned back and lubed his cock, impatient to claim what was his. “Ready?”
“No.” George grabbed the sheets, turning his face away from Tank. The shame on the man’s face tore Tank’s mind in two. He wanted this cowboy more than tides needed the moons pull, but he didn’t want to take if it wasn’t being freely offered.
“George, look at me.” Tank gently tugged his mate’s chin until he was staring into those beautiful, crystal-blue eyes. “Just once.”
George locked his jaw and nodded.
Tank pushed slowly past the ring of muscles, stopping when the head opened George wide. He gripped his mate’s hips and pushed further, watching George’s eyes for any sign of pain. If he asked, he would stop, although it would kill Tank now that he knew what an angel felt like.
Tank bottomed out and waited a moment until George’s body adjusted to his invasion. This was the guy’s first time on the receiving end, and Tank would do everything possible to make it pleasurable.
Tank wrapped George’s legs around his waist, ghosting his hands down George’s legs to ease the tension. He pulled back and then stroked long and deep. George’s eyes closed, and his head fell back, his lips parting. He moaned as he bowed his back, taking Tank to a new depth.
