Review: Tristan’s Despair (Shifters’ Haven #8) by Lavinia Lewis

Wolf shifter Tristan Ambrose is delighted to finally meet his mate, but is human Joey Brooks prepared for the constant danger that life with a shifter entails?

When wolf shifter Tristan Ambrose unexpectedly meets human Joey Brooks outside the guesthouse where they both stay, he couldn’t be happier to have finally found his mate. But Joey is an ambitious young newspaper reporter who came to Wolf Creek looking for a story on the arson attacks that have recently ravaged the town.

Can Tristan trust Joey to keep, not only his secret, but that of his entire pack? And when Joey is nearly killed by a fully shifted wolf, will he decide that a future with Tristan is not worth the risk to his life?

Reader Advisory: This book can be read as a standalone but is best enjoyed as part of a series.

Tristan’s Despair is the eighth installment of Lavinia Lewis’ Shifters’ Haven series recommended to be read in order. Tristan finally got his wish and discovered his mate. Joey, a human, was in Wolf Creek doing an investigative story related to the arsons that had befallen the town.

Tristan felt the mate pull immediately as did his human mate, although not truly understanding Joey was willing to date Tristan in order to allow the relationship to evolve.

Tristan’s Despair was a great addition to the series, as old characters are given the chance to find their mates creating new storylines. I also appreciated that Ms. Lewis did not forget the intricate circle of the pack and those that comprise it.

The story was a continuation of Pete’s Persuasion as the arsonist was still not captured but her whereabouts were divulged.

Lavinia Lewis is a delightful story teller adding substance to her characters and their tales as she sets the framework for her story. Each character matures and grows both internally and as a couple. That is not to say that problems do not arise, but Ms. Lewis resolves them with clarity and substance.

Hot men who happen to be shifters and great loving relationships; a must read for a fan of the series or a newbie.
