Description from the publisher:
Madison Templeton, known to most as Maddie, is going through a break-up. The man she thought was her mate, actually wasn’t. While that should break her heart, and it did a little, she’s more upset about losing her best friend and confidant, her ex-boyfriend’s twin brother Van. When the opportunity to escape town and help her cousin out at her bakery comes around, she jumps at it. A little time away to get her head back on straight seems like the perfect way to get some distance.

Van Bowman thought all he could have since the day Maddie unwittingly picked his twin brother over him, was friendship. He’s had to love her quietly from a distance, and find comfort in being her confidant. Now that his brother has broken up with her, Van is ready to claim the woman that should have been his from the beginning. He made a mistake not telling her how he felt, and he aims to fix that. He’ll do anything to convince her she belongs to him, even chase after her and face off against her new protective friends.

This is a stand-alone novella in the Southern Shifters Kindle World.  It is not part of any other series.

One of the best questions an author can ask is, “what if?”  So, what if the one you thought was your fated mate isn’t?  How did you read that wrong?  How can this be resolved?

I thought there were great characters and a different story.  Most PNR have the H/h meeting as adults and fated mates recognize each other immediately.  Instead, Maddie, Van, and Mack have known each other since they were children.  They wouldn’t know each other as mates on the playground and as they reached puberty they were a threesome of best friends.  Maddie makes a mistake and so do the boys.  As adults sometimes the hardest thing is recognizing a colossal mistake, admitting it, and then finding a fix.  I loved how Brandy Walker made it all happen.  She has great secondary characters that could also be brought into their own stories (hint, hint).

I have begged Brandy Walker to write about at least one of the other characters, to (pretty, please) return to the Southern Shifters World.  She agreed!!!!  Van’s brother, Mack, deserves his HEA, too.  Eliza Gayle has created a wonderful world that I am enjoying exploring.  In fact, I still have two more books in the series and hoping for more.
