"filled with light-hearted humor and emotion"

Aubrey Reynolds is the family heir, and the next pack alpha. His family, his employees and his pack mean everything to him. It's up to him to carry them into the future and he can't do that if they find out he's gay. Aubrey has resigned himself to marrying a girl and living without a mate but when visiting werewolf, Matt arrives to stay with him it appears fate has other plans. Aubrey can't give in to his desires for the younger man, there is too much to lose if he does. Then again, he faces losing Matt if he doesn't.

With Abandon is part of the With or Without series by J.L. Langley, though it stands very well alone. I really loved seeing Matt's sweetness get underneath Aubrey's defences and bring the two men together. The book is filled with the light-hearted humour and emotion in the perfect blend that I know this author for. I really enjoyed With Abandon and look forward to reading more books in this series in the future.

Love was never part of his plan…until it pounced.

As heir to an old and proud heritage, Aubrey Reynolds works and lives for his family, his employees and his pack. Agreeing to watch after a visiting werewolf is no big deal—until he discovers the newcomer is his mate. His very male mate…which is a very big deal, indeed. Revealing his sexuality was never part of Aubrey’s well-ordered life plan.

Much as he loved caring for his eight younger brothers, Matt Mahihkan knows it’s time to grab the opportunity to attend college in Atlanta. Realizing Aubrey is his mate should have been a delightful experience…except Aubrey treats him more like a dirty little secret than a lover. Yet Matt is a patient man. Aubrey can’t stay in the closet forever. Can he?

In time, they settle into a comfortable, if complicated, routine. Until a rogue werewolf with an axe to grind forces Aubrey to add to the wedge of secrets driving him and Matt apart, leaving Matt exposed to danger…and Aubrey forced to choose between love and duty.
