Justice Volkov is the youngest Alpha Zenith to ever lead the wolf shifters. Following in his father's large paw prints was a responsibility he met head on. Now at age 33, he is alpha of the alphas. As a direct descendant of the original Siberian pack, his wolf is bigger and stronger than Justice himself is sometimes able to control. His wolf howled long and hard, but Justice kept it inside. It felt like a bass drum beating against his rib cage. The harsh breaths, angry snarls, and the determined pacing inside him were overtaking him. Justice takes his role of leadership and his legacy very seriously. He has little time for romance, not to mention a true mate. His packs are his priority. With a human government trying to regulate them, an uprising of rogue shifters, and a violent team of scientists trying to experiment on them, Justice has his hands way too full.

Chadwick "Wick" Bentley is not enthusiastic when the captain of his escort tells him he has to leave his comfortable London home and go back to the States. As the Vampire King, he has no choice but to get his species back in line before they cause anymore chaos. At over 100 years old, Wick is no one to trifle with, but his smooth, charismatic manner makes him quite unique, despite the negative reputation vampires have. Wick has had nothing but time up to this point. He doesn't feel the need to make issues pressing. Nothing is urgent in his life. Until he meets Justice. His beloved.

"Natural enemies can't be mates." Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved's heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he's blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice's powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled.

Contains mature themes.

This book was SOOOO GOOOD!

A.E. Via writes some amazing stories and this is just another one added to their growing list of 5* books for me. I absolutely loved these guys; they had great character development and chemistry together. They were both written as strong leading characters, physically and mentally, yet neither man looked down on any of the other characters, no matter what species they were. I loved reading and hearing about all of their struggles and triumphs separately and then together as a couple. Every minute of this book was fantastic from start to finish and had me completely enthralled in the story.

Justice is the Alpha wolf of all Alpha shifters.

Chadwick “Wick” is the Vampire King, who rules them all.

I loved that Justice and Wick didn’t have an instant love with each other even though they had a very instantaneous pull to be mated to each other. I liked that there was some conflict in the fact that they were “supposed” to be enemies but that almost everyone stood behind them once they figured out the truth behind them being fated mates. And when Justice stopped pushing Wick away and just went with what was obviously supposed to happen, and they released their simmering sexual tension, their bonding was explosive and HOT.

OMG, the twist we got with Wick was awesome!! They really did pull together creating a really strong team when needed to battle against the forces trying to keep them apart. And while these men weren't perfect (who is?!?) they were made to complement each other’s strengths and personalities perfectly. I really think this book had everything in it and I enjoyed every part of it. I hope we get more books with these men I would love to see more of them and what happens next in their lives.

Audio – Nathaniel Black does an AMAZING job narrating this book!! Everything about his voice and the accents he uses for the specific characters and their needs and personalities was just fantastic. I really hope he puts more audiobooks out soon because I was really impressed with how well he narrated this one. He really pulled me into the story and kept me entertained the entire time. This is a book I can see myself listening to over and over again. Really great job!
