Thrown to the Wolves (2019) Charlie Adhara (Big Bad Wolf)

Thrown To The WolvesCooper has spent the past several months recuperating, and being taken care of by Oliver, who has been on suspension (both the result of Cooper’s visit home to see his father and brother).

Every official communication was carefully uninterested about the private lives of their agents but reaffirmed their stance that BSI agents engaged in a personal relationship could not be partnered together in the field.

Although Cooper is tired of being on medical leave, he still is unsure about going back to BSI.

At the end of the day, the BSI was a government agency struggling to be better while built on a faulty, problematic and hole-ridden system, and under the financial control of a broken and immoral government. The thought of going back in a couple of weeks was almost as bad as the thought of not going back at all.

Then Cooper and Oliver have to head up to Canada, because Oliver’s grandfather has died. And things are far far worse than Cooper could have expected.

Cooper put the guidebook down and cleared his throat. This was getting ridiculous. “Did you tell them I was coming?” Park blinked slowly, like he’d been dragged from deep in thought.

“Yes, of course,” he said after a long moment. Then, “Don’t be nervous.”

“I’m not,” Cooper said. Well, I wasn’t until you said that.

When I say things don’t go well, I mean that they go badly.

Park said. “We need to get you to the hospital.”

“No!” Cooper groaned against his own arm. “No more doctors.”

“You lost consciousness.”

“Didn’t. I was just closing my eyes,” he muttered. Park was silent. “I can sense your disapproval from here. Surely that means I’m not concussed.”

“You’d have to be dead not to.” Park sighed.

Although Cooper has gotten better to talking about his feelings and his past, there is still so much he doesn’t know about Oliver, and all of that is about to bite them both in the ass.

As with the previous two books, there is a murder mystery, and like book two, there is also a good deal of family drama, but this story also has an arc about the problems of werewolves remaining hidden from the public, with a secret government agency that exists only to protect humans from the werewolves.

I like so very much about this story, and you really need to read all three books. (Despite the boinking.)
