Cole Jakovich's job is to protect an undercover cop and his friend. Cole learns not everything in this world is as it seems when truths from his past come to the surface. The one place he'd believed to be absolutely safe is put to the test when a world he never knew existed calls a hunt, not only upon him but also on the men under his protection.

Billy Martin, former police officer, finds his whole world flipped upside down and far from safe. His choices are to run, or to stand at Cole's side to fight the enemies coming at them from all directions. Billy does the only thing he can, especially when Cole is captured by an enemy who wants to see him dead.

The Diamond Rose is known as a refuge for people from both worlds. Will Cole and Billy be able to keep everyone safe? Or will they all go down together?

With the help of family and friends, Billy and Cole find a strength they didn't know they had.

Gateway to Kalethia by N.J. Nielsen is the first book in  The Diamond Rose series. I loved this book. Cole keeps dreaming of a man with long hair and tattoos. He has no idea why he knows this but this man is his mate. He wants to meet him but he has no idea what his name is or if he is even real. He is also a police officer.
Billy has worked undercover as a dancer in a strip bar.  His cousin had begged him to help her out so he did. When a man ends up dead at the club Billy and his best friend from the club need to go into hiding, so they do not end up dead.
Cole offers his family’s home, no one after all is going to  go to a shifter ranch to look for them and if they do well they won’t live long enough to care.
Billy despite being the smaller man in this relationship is really strong and brave.  A little wild child in him which I liked.
Cole tries to be the responsible one. Do the right thing but it is very hard to ignore the call of your mate. Especially when the man wants you just as much as you want him. I liked how  the author brings these two together but lets them get to know each other before the whole you are my mate thing kicks in.  The romance is at a great pace. I really liked the pace of the actual story itself though sometimes I felt like it fell by the wayside in favor of the romance.
I would love to read more from this author in the future. I would definitely like more from this series bring on the shifters and the men that love them.
