Orphaned and scared, these cubs need an Alpha…and so do their caregivers.

Cast out of their wolf pack, Jock and Gus are skinny and wild but surviving okay out in the Colorado mountains. Winter is on its way, and Gus isn’t sure what they can do to stay warm and fed. To add to their problems, they’ve adopted a litter of abandoned wolf cubs, and suddenly there’s not enough food to go around.

Archer, a forest ranger and Alpha wolf, finds Jock and Gus in time to save them from Jack Frost, and from themselves. The moment he meets the two young males, he wants them, and he sets out to convince them to stay. Jock understands that Archer is what they need, but Gus intends to fight Archer every step of the way. He has to—it’s in his genes.

Can Archer keep this new family safe, from the elements and each other?


Needing to Breathe by author B.A. Tortuga is the first book in the  Two is Never Enough Series.  This story has me very conflicted. The story itself is very good. The idea of it that is. The chemistry between everyone is also very good.  The part that is making me torn is the editing.  The author often mistakens her own characters names for instance calling Jock, Josh in the middle of a sex scene.  I found where it was done like four times on one page.  Then on another page she is confusing Gus and Jock in a sex scene.  This made for confusing reading on my part. Usually I can forgive one or two mistakes like this, but this one had more than its fair share.
Also the story has so much chemistry and love, it is sad to see editing mistakes take away from that.
Gus is the alpha of the pack well at first he is anyways. He is wild, gruff, and protective.
Jock he is pure joy and puppy mode most of the time. Young and spry he is the light hearted one of the bunch.
Archer who ends up being the true alpha to them all. He is thoughtful, kind, and lovable.
I loved the chemistry they all have. It made for hot reading. Though the editing did take away from that slightly.  I would say this has everything I love MMM and werewolves. But as it stands I would say skip this one.  I wish I could say over look the editing but it is in the middle of some hot scenes and does detract from the overall feeling in the scenes.
