Irish Wishes (Assassin/Shifter) by Sandrine Gasq-Dion

This time the plot is a little more complex than others, maybe cause the story focuses on Wayne Maccon, who is one of the leaders of this series, the Alpha of the Delani pack, born werewolf centuries ago, powerful and always caring of the others. During the previous novel the reader had the chance to know him and Conner, his mate. The trouble is that Wayne isn’t gay and he has to come to term with the fact that his mate is a man. What probably is the funniest thing is that is a trouble only for him, cause nor his friends or his own family has a problem with that.

Once the finding your mate is out of the picture, this time the plot focuses on rescuing Conner from a pack of rogue wolves kidnapping him. The quest to rescue Conner is an excuse to gather all the team, humans, werewolves, Navy Seals, firefighters, FBI, and whatever other dream hero you can think of. Plus the introduction of some future plots, like Nikolai and his mate, Chance and Logan, Mitch and Locke…

I found Irish Wishes to be a little more fast paced and with and higher breath, like the author decided to bring her characters out for a field trip, in another country, Ireland, and with a more adventurous plot. Wayne and Conner’s story, for how much romantic it was, was like a parallel plot, but there were other important threads, the female pack, the wish of many of the previous pairs to become fathers, the tightening of different series into one. For the first time while reading this novel I wished I had a genealogy tree, to be able to collect and put together all the pieces.

Anyway, for who is following this series in its wholeness, Irish Wishes is an absolute needed reading.
