An Ignited Passion (Assassin/Shifter) by Sandrine Gasq-Dion

This is the second book by Sandrine Gasq-Dion I read, and to me it seemed like it was a completely different author. Oh, don’t get me wrong, it’s for sure the same author, the two books are tightly intertwined, but I had the feeling the author was playing a game; being this a double series, Assassin/Shifter, and having first read a book in the Assassin line and then on the Shifter one, my idea is that she is using different style for the different lines. Assassin is more wordly, action packed, international affair; Shifter is more homey, Friday night beer with friends, Sunday barbeque with family.

Preston and Wyatt’s story is about young men/boys; all right, both of them are werewolves, and so this is not your ordinary love story, but truth be told the supernatural nature of both men is not so front stage to overwhelm the plot. Preston met Wyatt when he was 13 years old and Wyatt only 6; for sure it was not the time to claim his mate, and so, with the agreement of Wyatt’s family, he moved in the background, giving the time to Wyatt to become older and doing his own experiences. Unfortunately those experiences lead Wyatt in prison due to a college prank. At this point, Preston, who is now a respected firefighter, assumes the role of Wyatt’s supervisor during his Community service.

As I said, the story between Preston and Wyatt is mostly homey and nice; they meet again as adult, they are both free to enjoy their relationship, there is no obstacles between them, not from their co-workers or from Wyatt’s family, on the contrary, there is only support and good advices.

One thing I noticed is that there is very few woman’s presence in the story; for example, Wyatt’s family is made of 1 father and 4 male brothers, all married to men… I did wonder about this side of the story, but actually the only woman, Olivia, is one of the most positive characters in the story, so I suppose it’s only that the author didn’t plan more women in the story.
