Review: No Matter What by Sydney Presley

They must protect each other. No matter what.

Quinn has resigned himself to living a life alone. His cabin, on the outskirts of a village, is the perfect place for him to paint. No distractions, lots of peace and quiet—until he goes out for a run as a wolf and sees another wolf scarpering for its life.

Goddard is that wolf. He’s been running for God knows how long, and he’s tired of looking over his shoulder, waiting to be found by the one man Goddard doesn’t want finding him. Injured, he discovers a cabin and goes inside.

Quinn’s and Goddard’s lives are changed forever when they realize they are bonded mates. The thing is, there’s still the problem of the man from Goddard’s past to get over, and when an incident in the village means Goddard’s whereabouts is public knowledge, things might take a nasty turn.

Gone are the days when the two men had to stick by human law. Being mated means wolf law comes first—and if it means killing to keep each other safe, then that’s what they’re prepared to do. They must protect each other. No matter what.

I was lured in by the blurb. The blurb for No Matter What had all the little things listed I enjoy in an M/M PNR. Shifters, lonely souls, a bit of danger, and a possibility of an HEA. Yup, it has it all…and yet, it didn’t rock my world.

Let me start with Quinn and Goddard weren’t bad characters. Honestly, they were quite likable. Quinn seems to be your average Joe, going about his life, resigned to a lonely one. Not exactly sure if it was because he was gay or a shifter. Goddard’s backstory has a bit of a nail-biting element the accompanied nicely to his current life. On the run, hiding from someone from his past. They meet, have a connection, have a bit of insta-love, face Goddard’s past and have a wonderful HEA. The end.

Yes, all the elements I like, however, it really didn’t have any fire. The characters are likable enough, but not enough to get my heart racing. The shifter aspect for me I found a bit ho-hum bordering on disappointing. They can shift, heal quickly when they shift, and they know their bonded mates almost instantly. Really the most exciting aspect for me was Goddard’s past and him having to deal with it now.

My main issue probably lays in with this being such a quick read that everything had to happen fast without a lot of details. A lot of hit the mark and move on to the next piece without a lot of lingering. Readers who want a quickie will probably enjoy No Matter What. It was just missing that spark for me.
