Kayden Garrett’s ready to head home to Georgia, after four long years in Boston attending university. An unexpected fight with an abusive lover leaves him battered—and cursed, into becoming a werewolf. Immediately after leaving the plane, he’s introduced to a man, Paul, who makes his former flame dwindle in the dark. Their connection is instant and explosive. The two can’t explain the attraction to each other, but don’t waste time trying to figure it out.

Between struggling with being a werewolf, and getting in with a local pack, Kayden has to acclimate to being with someone who treats him as an equal, instead of a possession. And all their progress comes to a halt when a dark figure from Paul’s past resurfaces, threatening their newfound love, and their very existence.

Going home isn’t always easy—but for Kayden, the experience is a true test of his strength, his ability to adapt to the shifter world he’s been thrown into, his need to protect his family and friends, and his overwhelming desire to be loved.

Dark South :Shifter by Jace Payne is a great start to what promises to be an amazing series.  Kayden is leaving his boyfriend, or more likely you would call him a sex partner. He wants a relationship but his boyfriend is abusive. When Kayden tries to leave his boyfriend turns into a wolf and bites him. His best friend Annette saves him.  Kayden decides to go home and recover.
Paul Devereux works for Kayden’s parents.  He is a grounds keeper.  The chemistry between him and Kayden is hot and instantaneous.  Paul has had some real tragedy in his life. He also has a secret.  A big one that will help Kayden later on.  I liked Paul’s strength.  He is a steadfast hero with a heart of gold. He so deserved his happy ending.
These characters are really meant for each other.  They are kind, sweet, and the chemistry is off the charts. I liked how Jace Payne brings a great storyline along with hotter than sin men.  Perfect storm for a great story.  I really loved this book, I want more!  Bring on the shifters, I really need more of them.
