You are cordially invited to the event of the season...

Please be our guest as the National Association of the Lycan Brotherhood hosts the seventy-eighth annual Gathering. The biggest event of the social season, the Gathering has become the favorite method of networking among packs and bringing together fated mates. At the Gathering, shifters from across the country show up to show off and to see who’s the true leader of the pack.

Day two of the Gathering is set aside for interpack business. Shewolf Kalie and her new mate find this truth out the hard way, as her Alpha demands she spend time with another male shifter in the hope of an alliance. Gideon Kelly assumed finding his mate would be the hardest part of the Gathering, but watching Kalie be charmed by another man while he’s forced to stay on the outside tests the shifter’s control. When an innocent gesture is taken out of context, Gideon goes from respecting an Alpha’s rules to breaking them, while Kalie fights for her right to claim and be claimed.

Come and enjoy tales from the biggest shifter event of the year as wolves from around the country fall in lust, in love, and in fate at the Gathering.

My rating:

While its predecessor was cute, sexy, and funny, this one was its opposite. Not cute, not sexy, and not funny. It just was. He was in his wolf form in the woods, she was on her balcony, their eyes met, they got to "know" each other in her closet, she went to a luncheon with another wolf, he went a little crazy, they fucked in the hallway, decided she'd move into his pack, since she's an Omega, and went for another bout in the closet. The end.

Formulaic, template-y, and bland.
