Finding his mate should have been Patrick Holland's greatest day, instead it turned into a nightmare with one phone call. His mate didn't want him. His heart broke, but at sixteen he was too young to do anything. The next ten years-ten long years- of Patrick's life are spent at odds with his mate. Split by forces he can't comprehend and a long line of misunderstandings, Patrick doubts he'll ever get the man he's both loved and hated. Jake Richmond never expected to come home from Uni to find the youngest Holland brother was his mate. Knowing the news might uplift his still grieving father, Jake shares the news only to have his young mate threatened. Jake does the only thing he can think of, protect Patrick. The next ten years are nothing but torture for Jake as he watches his mate grow into a remarkable young man. They say time heals all wounds, but how much time?

Let me warn you: if you thought book three was tough on your emotions, you are in for an even more emotional ride with this fourth volume. Based on the blurb, as well as the hints about Patrick in previous books, I did not expect an easy ride by any means. I mean, to be denied by his mate, the one man who is supposed to love him unconditionally, for ten years is just cruel, right? Well, let me tell you, once it becomes obvious why Jake is doing what he is doing, I felt for him as well. What a mess! And yet, these two men prove to be strong, honorable, and manage to be there for each other when it counts. A perfectly heartwrenching romance!

Patrick is very young, only sixteen, when he realizes his oldest brother Alex’s best friend and the man he has had sort of a crush on for years, is his mate. They share one amazing kiss before deciding to delay claiming each other until Patrick is done with high school and Jake has his degree. But that is when disaster strikes, and Jake suddenly rejects Patrick. Since they cannot totally avoid seeing each other, especially once Alex becomes pack alpha and makes Jake his beta, the heartbreak is repeated over and over again. Patrick is still attracted to Jake even after ten years of being rebuffed and hurt, and he cannot get close to another man even though he tries his best, because his wolf rebels and he ends up vomiting every time. And then Alex sends the two of them on a weeklong trip together – hell on Earth, right?

Jake is in an awful situation. He is elated that he has found his mate, and falls in love with Patrick over the next few years, but he knows that any sign of approaching him will risk Patrick’s life. Jake’s father is slowly losing touch with reality and, since he wants grandpups, is determined to make Jake “ungay” and get him to marry a girl. It takes Jake a long time to realize how wrong his father is, and to work up the courage to stand up to the idiot. Even though he has given up all hope that Patrick can ever forgive him, when the beta of the pack they go to visit on their weeklong trip hits in Patrick, Jake sees red. Enough is enough. But when he finally mans up, all hell breaks lose for both of them…

If you like stories about men who have had to deny the one they love for longer than either of them thinks is possible, if you enjoy reading about a young man who comes into his own despite being hurt over and over again by the man he has fallen for, and if you’re looking for an emotional romance full of pain, longing, some nail-biting tension, and an emotionally charged happy ending, then you will probably like this novel.

This one was just eh. The idea that Jake was naive enough to think he couldn't go to his alpha and best friend about the situation with Rick and his father was just...childish.

If he was old enough and smart enough to be working on a masters degree in law, he should have known that the Hollands would have protected Rick from his crazy father.

And if ten years of torturing his mate and himself wasn't bad enough, it only took a few words from a strange beta to make him say 'eff it' and claim his mate?!

It wasn't terrible, but the plot was a bit over the top. ( )

Rick and Jake have a connection but Jake seems to be uninterested. When you find out the whole story of why he has rejected rich all this time it breaks your heart. It is so good to see them get together. ( )
