A race to save his lover—by becoming his own worst nightmare.
Dr. Nick Sewell has it all. Good friends, a career as a Cambridge academic… and recently, a tendency to turn into a wolf every full moon. When a new student arrives from Germany, Nick is horrified by his visceral attraction to the troubled youth—not to mention his violent jealousy when he sees Julian with another man. He’s floored to find out Julian is a werewolf too.
Unlike Nick, Julian has spent his life among other wolves, and in this subject, he’s the teacher and Nick the student. Nick struggles to adjust to this reversal of roles, especially since he’s an alpha and Julian a natural submissive. That dynamic just adds to the attraction smoldering between them, whether they’re in human form or wolf.
But Julian’s pack and the abuse he suffered aren’t far behind him. And the pack wants to reclaim him. For Nick to hold on to his lover, he’ll have to come to terms with the violent acts of his past—and embrace the monster within.

Nick was appropriately British, and the whole thing had this air of being faintly but politely confused, which was very appropos. The probl...
I normally enjoy JL Merrow but this one didn't work for me at all. It was just not working for me...at all. Sad.
4,5 stars.A werewolf m/m romance with some unusual twists."What the hell was so bloody fair about a fair fight anyhow? It didn't make you any more right if you won. It just meant you were bigger and could hit harder. Or, as if might be, had sharper teeth."Nick is a professor and a werewolf - turned ...
2,5 starsWhat I liked in this book* It's a long complex story, full of charming secondary characters * Nick is a GREAT character, but it worries me A LOT about this tendency to be an abuser (what happened to his ex... it worried me a lot)* I LOOOOOOOOOVE J.L. Merrow's writing and humor.I struggle to...
