When you’re the top wolf on the continent with the backing of the Goddess, how does an enemy topple your kingdom? By challenging you to a fight? No. By changing the rules.

After three hundred years of fighting and service to the Goddess, Silas Knight is the Patron, Alpha to the Alphas on the North American continent. As the top wolf, he fears little and has seen most things. But when he discovers someone or something has been quietly disturbing the natural order of things, he’s surprised. Certain human women have the ability to birth fully functioning wolves, and that’s a major problem.

Jasmine Bennett has no idea her deceased husband was a wolf shifter or that her twin sons are shifters. Her life changes when she rushes to her son’s bedside after he’s wounded in Afghanistan and returned stateside. Now her life’s in danger because of her ability to give birth to a breed of beings she never knew existed.

After sending out a mating call which Silas answered, Jasmine’s pregnant and depressed. Her life has spiraled out of control. Silas is angry that his first “litter of pups” are half breeds. A group of human breeders offer her a chance to leave Silas, offering a strange brand of protection. When a human breeder enters the compound using a weapon the wolves are helpless against, Silas and Jasmine understand the true meaning of Birth Control.

I am really enjoying the La Patron series by Sydney Addae.  In BirthControl, the second story in the series we continue Silas and Jasmine’s story.  This story is best read in chronological order.  I really enjoy both Jasmine and Silas.  Silas continues to struggle with what Jasmine means to shifters and Jasmine struggles to accept that her choices are yet again limited.  I loved how both characters navigated the swiftly changing landscape of their lives.  Ms. Addae allowed us to journey through Silas’s acceptance of that which he can’t control, as well as getting less than he expected.  Jasmine also had to come to terms with issues that are larger than her feelings.  That doesn’t mean that Ms. Addae doesn’t sneak romance into the lives of Silas and Jasmine.  Because when neither was looking they became more to each other than expected.  I loved that Ms. Addae allowed love to ambush both Silas and Jasmine.  Both learned to trust in each other and found more than they dreamed.  Woven into their love story is the danger to the status quo and the decisions forced upon them in an attempt to stem growing hatred and the possibility of war and bloodshed.  I am enjoying the every growing threads in the story and look forward to what Ms. Addae has in store for us next.
