Styles hated wolves with a passion. They had been nothing but trouble to him since he was a small pup. It was wolves who had killed his parents. It was wolves who had messed with him in his young adult life. So when fate decided to give Styles a wolf for a mate, he finds himself at a crossroad, uncertain of which road to take.
Robby was determined to make Styles his. He knew about the coyote's tragic past, but he wasn’t going to let that stand in his way of going after what was his. The harder Styles pushes him away, the harder Robby fights to get near the man.
Loving Styles is easy, but getting the man to tear down his walls is proving tough.
When someone breaks into Robby's house, trashing the place, Styles agrees to let Robby stay the night. He had sworn that all wolves were his mortal enemy, until Robby touches a place Styles thought long dead.
A friend asked me why I never give up on anything that involved Brac. To answer frankly: I love anything Brac. It was one of the first MM romance books I read and Lynn Hagen is actually one of the major reason why I decided to seriously look into this genre and from her I got to discover and read the other MM authors, some of whom have become my favorites. As for anything that involves Brac, let me just say that this is one arc that has developed in such a way where new things fantastical develop, some not so well, some very well, and has been the basis of some offshoots as well as the development of the Brac Village Website which I go to often to while my time away and imagine. It is also a great way to imagine how my interiors should look like so I do use the images on a personal level.
Brac Village as a series is an offshoot of Brac Pack and is one that I follow and read. So yes, I am a fan and it is a great series to while the time away to relax in bed. It is filled with gorgeous men but then there are some I cannot personally stand which makes this series all the more interesting.
In Loving Styles, we have this cayote who does not hunt his mate and instead attempts to reject him. Robby, on the other hand, is one wiley wolf and goes on ahead to woo his mate. It is one of the more romantic and funny efforts I had ever read. I wish men were like Robby, never giving up, all alpha and yet sweet and romantic and funny. Holding a fried chicken hostage and making sure the FBI does not get to know the whereabouts is just an example of what I wish men were in reality.
So yes, I am a big fan of Brac Village. That should answer my dear friend's question. And yes, I have read all the Lynn Hagen books, whether I do manage to write a review or not. And yes, I will continue to read her works for she is one of those authors who does manage to make me always smile at the end of each page.
