Regarded as the strongest wolf shifter in generations, Alpha Zev Hassick is surprised and confused by his attraction to his best friend. His very human, very male best friend. A male shifter has to mate with a female shifter to keep his humanity, so shifters can’t be gay. Yet, everything inside Zev tells him Jonah is his true mate.

Maintaining a relationship with the man he has loved since childhood isn’t easy for Jonah Marvel, but he won’t let distance or Zev’s odd family get in their way. When unexplained ailments begin to plague Jonah, he needs to save his own life and sanity in order to have a future with Zev.

Zev and Jonah know they’re destined for each other, but they must overcome traditions ingrained over generations and long-buried secrets to fulfill their destiny.

Mates Collection starts off with Wake Me Up Inside by Cardeno C.  I love MM werewolves stories and this one is intensely erotic and I could not stop reading it.  Going to be on my keeper shelf.
Zev has to tie to someone or risk losing his humanity. He is also attempting to bring his pack into the modern era.  When he does find his mate he is patient, kind, loving and a very strong Alpha.  I loved this character.
Jonah has always been in Zev’s life. But as a human. A half soul Zev is not supposed to have contact with. But the connection and pull is way too hard for the both of them to resist.
I really liked the flow of this story. There is a lot going on but does not feel like it is overwhelming or too much.  I would love to read more in this series in the future.  I would also love to revisit the characters see what they are doing now. Overall a great read especially if you are like me and love MM werewolf type books.
