Silver Tip Pack, #2
by Megan Erickson
Almost dying during a pack uprising has a way of shaking things up. I’m no longer Mr. Laid Back now that there’s an itch under my skin I can’t scratch.
On a volunteer mission that goes beyond the walls of our compound, we enter the territory of a pack long thought dead, and find ourselves on the business end of their spears.
What I’m not prepared for is what I find within their walls—The one shifter I never thought I’d see alive, the one I’d mourned twice, the one I’d always loved. He is alive, and if I have anything to do with it, he’ll stay that way. But he’s got secrets, and exposing them could lead us to an enemy worse than the bloodthirsty undead shifters wanting to kill us all…

I walked toward him, not stopping until I stood right in front of him. I reached up, wrapping my arms around his painfully thin shoulders, and tugged him to me.
His face immediately dropped to my neck, and his entire body slumped into me. He nuzzled into my skin, huffing against it, while I ran my hands down his back, fingers catching on the many scars and wounds, old and new.
He clutched at my waist, pressing himself against me. He’d been needing this, starving for it, and while I wasn’t his alpha—hell I wasn’t even an alpha—I was the closest thing he had to a pack right now.
While this was helping him, it was creating all kinds of problems for me. Namely, in my pants, because my d!ck was thickening with every soft whiff of his moist breath, with every desperate press of his fingers into my skin. My teenage memories of Nash were always present in my mind, no matter how much I tried to erase them over the years, cover them up with dirt and new memories. They always rose to the surface. He’d been my first kiss, a frantic clashing of teeth and tongues along the wall near the Farm back at the Silver Tip compound. At the time I couldn’t believe he’d wanted me back, that those blue eyes of his were clouded with desire over me. Me.
In seconds, from that moment when his lips had touched mine to when he’d pulled back and gazed at me in wonder, I’d planned our whole lives. We’d be mates. He’d work on fortifying our infrastructure—he’d always been good with his hands—and I’d be my brother’s second in command. We’d live happily ever after, or as much as anyone could while surrounded by Nowere hordes.
But we hadn’t had that future. One day outside the walls, my sister was turned into a Nowere, and we’d believed Nash had been killed. Twice now—f*cking twice—I’d thought Nash was dead, only to find out he’d managed to stay alive.
He wasn’t letting me go now, my scent fogging his brain like a drug. His tongue slowly swirled along my shoulder, and I wanted to bend over that bed, let him grab my hips and take from me what he needed. This was what had drawn me away from my home, away from my pack. Like I had known in my bones that Nash was alive, and that he needed me.
Nash had always owned me, from that first kiss, and I’d be whatever he wanted me to be. If I had to f*ck him to health, I would. Of course, with Nash, I’d never be able to separate sex from feelings like I could with anyone else. But I’d choose him over my own intact heart. Maybe this was why I’d never quite felt like I had a purpose. I’d been waiting for Nash.
I’m telling you, I’m completely sucked in to this dystopian world that Megan created for her hot shifters. This is now the second book, and it’s about Bay and Nash. You’d have met them briefly from Daring Fate (my review here). Bay is Dare’s brother and Nash is Bay’s childhood friend who was ripped away from the pack. Don’t worry; it’s a standalone, although I don’t know why you’d wanna skip the first one. It’s a def top fave, just saying…
While this didn’t give me the same high as Daring Fate, this has all the right feels in all the right places. Unlike Dare and Reese from the first book who came from two different packs, you’ll learn that Bay and Nash has quite a history that was snuffed way too quickly due to circumstances. When their paths cross again, Nash is a changed man. Bay, on the other hand, just felt restless. When they met again, they can’t deny what’s always been there between them, just simmering. But the road back to each other wasn’t gonna be quite that easy.
It feels like this has more angst than the first book, and it made complete sense. Nash is a broken man who thought there was no trace of his old self in him anymore. It’s up to Bay to show Nash that his old self has always been there and that he deserved every ounce of love. What Nash went through, it squished my heart over and over. I love how Bay totally got Nash and gave him exactly what he needed which in turn got Nash giving back exactly what Bay needed. Not just that, They’re smokin’ hot together! Just saying…
And just like the first book, this got my heart pumping as the story unfolded until you reach the climax of the story. Quite a ride!
I’ve said this before about the first book and I’ll say it again. If you’re not typically a fan of PNR like I am, you have to give this series a shot at least. Megan’s always able to infuse her story with just the right amount of humor, heat and heart. She’s been doing that with her contemporary romances, and she’s doing exactly that with this PNR series.
Megan Erickson is a USA Today bestselling author of romance that sizzles. Her books have a touch of nerd, a dash of humor, and always have a happily ever after. A former journalist, she switched to fiction when she decided she likes writing her own endings better.
She lives in Pennsylvania with her very own nerdy husband and two kids. Although rather fun-sized, she's been told she has a full-sized personality. When Megan isn't writing, she's either lounging with her two cats named after John Hughes characters or... thinking about writing.
*Daring Fate was a top fave so I wanna share the love and hope that you end up loving it as much as I did. Good luck!
