Product Description

Product Description

Two Alpha shifters join together to lead their pack and build a family.

Commitment, loyalty, and strength aren’t enough to make Wesley Stone’s birth pack accept an Alpha with a physical imperfection, even if it’s a meaningless mark. Putting the safety of his pack above his own wellbeing, Wesley trades himself for another Alpha and agrees to mate with a stranger in a mysterious, insular pack.

Alphas from Jobe Root’s family have led the Red River pack from the first day shifters walked the earth. Now the time has come for Jobe to fulfill his destiny, but to do that, he needs his mate by his side. Spiritual, easygoing Jobe reveres Mother Nature and trusts in fate, yet he can’t help being nervous about how his mate will react to his new life in Red River, his new life with Jobe.

Two Alphas with contrasting personalities, different upbringings, and divergent beliefs come together for the good of their packs. But to stay together, Wesley and Jobe must see beyond the surface and embrace every facet of themselves and their union.

3.0 out of 5 stars Red River Jan. 21 2016
By C. Jefferson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Wesley Stone is next in line to be the Alpha of his pack. Well, he should be whenever his uncle finally decides to step down from the role. But Wesley is different. He is a scar on his abdomen that many in his pack see as a weakness, though he doesn't quite understand why. He's always been a bit of an outsider, but he's completely shocked when his uncle lets him know he'll never be able to lead their pack. If he wants to become an Alpha, he'll need to trade places with an Alpha from a nearby pack and take the current Alpha's son as his mate. While it's not anything close to the ideal situation, Wesley agrees, thinking he will find a way to make the best of it. But when he meets Jobe Root, his intended mate, everything turns out to be far different than he expected. The way the Red River pack functions is not at all like the pack in which Wesley has lived his life. He quickly learns that many of the things he thought were absolute might be a bit more fluid than he believed. It turns out there are some things that Wesley didn't know about himself, either...

This is a quick and engaging read. The pace is just right to keep the reader interested without ever feeling too rushed. And the slow reveal of some of the information about Jobe and the Red River pack certainly allows for a few twists to be thrown in along the way.

This is the second book in a series, but it appears to be stand-alone. I've not read the first book, and I had no problems at all following what was happening here or knowing who all of the characters were. One thing that did throw me, and I'll share it even though it might be a bit of a spoiler, is some MPreg near the end. I'm not one for MPreg stories--it's something I've never been able to suspend disbelief enough to not catch me up in a story, even in those with paranormal themes--but it's so close to the end and isn't really a major focus of the story, so I found myself able to look past it in my reading.

[Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.]

2.0 out of 5 stars Pssst... this is fantasy, not science fiction Jan. 22 2016
By Teddypig - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First off, I think Cardeno C. is a decent writer so talent wise that's so not at issue for me. I enjoyed the last book Blue Mountain and I was hoping the writing would just get better as the writer got more comfortable with the world being built. Unfortunately writing the omega/mpreg deal can run you into some messy cringe worthy issues and CC seems to want to fall face first into every last one of them. So let's take on these problems and I will explain my score.

1) This is fantasy, not science fiction... you do not have to justify or rationalize or explain why these guys turn into wolves to begin with because we all know why. It's A FREAKING FANTASY about werewolves and magic we got it. So, you are not having to rationalize werewolves and you are not rationalizing why "alphas" are "alphas" and you are not explaining why "omegas" are "omegas" so why are you all stuck on trying to rationalize mpreg? Why? No really, why?

2) The whole baby making belly pack with the always convenient see through hatch you are seriously describing is SO LAME! Why not just include a zipper while jumping off the deep end of WTF? And yeah PSI (whatever that means) is "so rare" that two different people in the same pack suddenly have the same rare condition. Because rare *reasons*... why not explain that?

3) Last but not least we come to the main couple Wesley & Jobe. Jobe came across as backstabbing with his "lies of omission" deal not to mention the underhanded cut throat political manuvering Wesley was up to at the beginning of their "romance" and it never really lightens up Jobe just gets more and more annoying playing emotional Yoda to Wesley's helpless derp at least that was the vibe I got. It just left me not caring at all about them as a couple with all the rather heavy handed unromantic issues with the mate stuff and all the unromantic issues with the hokey mpreg stuff and then all the unromantic issues with the other pack and it's various dramas. Wesley started coming across as shallow uninformed and pretty much too stupid to live and not someone I cared about in the least. As a reader I came away feeling like CC was more involved in setting up the next book and increasingly less involved in selling the romance in this book.

To leave this on a constructive positive note go read Finding His Omega by Wolf Specter or Omega Adored by Aiden Bates as more recent examples of omega/mpreg stories that avoided these obvious pot holes and as an added bonus did not suck in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars the “mate” situation makes Wes feel like a whore Jan. 19 2016
By Gigi - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Red River is the second book in the Pack series, the first being Blue Mountain. This book can be read as a standalone.

There are so many ways I could spoil this story with a review. Many of the revelations need to be experienced by the reader as the book progresses. My suggestion is to read this before diving in too deep with reviews that contain spoilers, just in case. This is a SPOILER FREE review.

Wesley is an Alpha wolf shifter that doesn’t have the support of his pack. The current Alpha suggests an Alpha trade with another pack to which Wes reluctantly agrees. Wesley will travel to River River and become a Co-Alpha with the current Alpha-in-waiting, Jobe Root, after they bond as mates. Unfortunately, the “mate” situation makes Wes feel like a whore, but that is just the first of many misconceptions on Wes’ part.

Jobe Root, next in line for the Red River Alpha title, is a complete and total hippy. He communes with nature, eats only food provided by the land and specializes in herbs and spices from his garden. There is actually a scene when Wes firsts meets Jobe where Wes smalls the air to make sure easy-going-laid-back Jobe isn’t smoking weed. Hilarious!

Wes and Jobe, once they got on the same page, had an adorable, hot relationship. I thoroughly loved these men, both good, hardworking, caring people. They had a HUGE number of misunderstands that greatly affected their relationship. It was actually a little too much and got out-of-hand, which is why I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5.

I can recommend this sweet, touching, but often frustrating, shifter romance to all MM romance fans who like their shifter-wolves big and buff and hot as hell!

3.0 out of 5 stars Romance is 2nd Stage... Feb. 16 2016
By Cookie Moretti - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Red River by Cardeno C. (MM/Romance/Shifter)

A copy of this book was provided to me by Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.

***3 STARS***

I love mizz C.C so I dive on in to her latest shifter book. Wesley is an alpha, but his pack refuses to accept him because he has a scar...ok. So he's told that he can lead a different pack who happens to be looking for an alpha to mate with their current alpha. He hates the idea, but leaves to prevent any violence.

Jobe, is the alpha of the pack that Wesley travels to. Apparently they met before, but Wesley doesn't remember this til later even though Jobe is already aware. I want to say that I liked this story, that I liked these characters...but sadly, I wasn't really into them. Here's why.

Too much info.

What I mean by that is...there's a lot of talking about Jobe's pack and history. Don't get me wrong, I like reading about an authors buildup of their fantasy world, but in this case, it eclipsed Jobe and Wesley's relationship for me. I usually get a lot of romance from Cardeno C, that's why I love this author, but the romance was second stage. I didn't hate this book, but it left me feeling confused and disappointed.

With that said, I'll still be on the look out for C.C's next book cause this gal (me), cannot stay away. lol

3.0 out of 5 stars book 2 of the series Feb. 20 2016
By Booklover Mary - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Wesley Stone is an alpha without a home. Not really, but he's been made to feel like an outsider his entire life and all because of the unusual scar on his abdomen. As the current alpha readies himself to retire, Wesley is told that he is being "traded" to another pack for an alpha in their pack.

Jobe Root is an alpha with the Purple Sky pack, the one that Wesley is being traded to. When Wesley meets Jobe for the first time, he feels a connection with the man but is not sure how it formed so quickly. Jobe realizes that Wesley is insecure about his feelings and even his position at Purple Sky and does his best to make him feel like part of the team.

As Wesley begins to feel more and more at home with the Purple Sky pack, he realizes that was a lot of things he wasn't taught as a member of his former pack. The other packs have forgotten the basics of their species as well as the legends and folklore.

A slow moving friendship that turns to romance. The reader learns more about this shifter world and the differences among the packs in this installment.
