*****5 short, shifting STARS***** Although typically shifter reads aren't my favorite, Cora Murray had me sucked into this short story! I'm looking forward to reading more of the Dark Brothers Trilogy! The Dark Alpha is a shifter book of the Whittier Pack. Aiden Dark, alpha of the pack also works as a college professor. Finding his mate in Zoey York brings challenges considering she is his student. Working herself ragged, Zoey passes out in class making this alpha finally claim..."Mine. Mate."
Aiden Dark is quite a delicious character. Dark, sexy, and he seems to have a dangerous side. He is a shifter after all. The connection between him and Zoey is immediate and pretty hot. Zoey means much more to him though than she realizes and it's driving Aiden half mad with want and the need to protect her. I love their connection and I love Zoey's work ethic. She's a determined woman. And she was doing it all on her own. Nice short read!!
