Release Blitz Review: Fated Hearts by Garrett Leigh

Fated Hearts
(Shadow Bound #1)
by Garrett Leigh
Release Date: September 10, 2019
Genre: M/M Paranormal Romance

"He’s not a wolf."

Devastated by the death of his best friend, Zio is a soldier with one thing on his mind: revenge. Consumed by a conflict that’s raged as long as he’s been alive, he’s had little time or inclination to learn the legends of the shifter world he was raised in.And he certainly doesn’t have time to deal with a shifter of a different kind, even if it’s for the good of the war effort. For the good of his pack. The fact that he’s already crossed paths with the new face in his unit is almost irrelevant.


Do no harm. Give life not death: it’s the oath Devan was reborn to live by, so when he’s sent abroad to embed with a wolf pack as their resident healer, he doesn’t hesitate. In the supernatural world, some bonds are instant—soldiers become brothers, pack become family. But others run deeper and before long, Devan’s at the mercy of instincts he can’t control.

Zio’s inner wolf is desperate to be with Devan, while Devan struggles to keep the pack safe. But as the war escalates, and new love is tainted by anguish and pain, the battles within might prove the toughest of them all.

"I won’t let him die."

Well, hot damn. This book is intense. I honestly don't care much about the supernatural politics and think it was just pain in the arse with all the laws and orders and wars. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the sexual tension was insane. The main reason I breezed through this book in the middle of the night is because I just need to read Devan (a healer from Shadow Clan) and Zio (the young soldier from northern wolf pack) to have 'alfresco sex' (I learned it from Garrett's tweet) with each other.

Right from their first encounter, lust is in the air and we knew that they are fated mate. Zio being the young and naive wolf doesn't seems to know the seriously of this whole mating thing, but Devan the wiser one knows, but he was damn good at controlling it. Thrown in some 'I-hate-you-why-are-you-here' vibe, close proximity action and forbidden from mating by their alpha (because politics), the sexual tension was off the chart. Although, they are not banging each other, it doesn't mean everything is platonic, there are plenty of delicious intimate scenes and their relationship and love for each other just grow despite all the pack drama.
