Bald Eagle by Lynn Hagen was an intense ride I would not have missed for anything.

Bald Eagle (Zeus's Pack, #7)Title: Bald Eagle
Author: Lynn Hagen
Publisher: Siren Publishing
Release Date: 7 Jan 2012
This book is:  My own e-book

This is the summary off the back of the book.
Bald Eagle suffered a fate worse than death at the hands of an insane alpha. When his mate, Chey, comes into his life, he is unable to claim him. Doing so would force him to relive each and every terrifying moment of his past.

Chey craves Eagle like his next breath and watches him from afar knowing he can never touch his mate for fear that the healing Eagle would go through might very well destroy him. But knowing he can never touch his mate is slowly destroying him.

Doctor Maximus Samuel is thrilled when he finds Eagle and Chey. He's tired of being alone. But there are issues between Eagle and Chey that he has no clue about. The two men have a bond between them that he might not be welcome in.

When Chey is kidnapped, Eagle and Max set out to bring him back, but what started out as a rescue mission for Chey, turns into a journey for Eagle that he wasn’t ready to take. Can they find a way to work together to bring Eagle through his nightmares or will they lose the future they could have because their fears are working against them.

This is what I think of the book.
OK first let me say that it is claimed that these can be read as stand alone books so it is not necessary to read them in order....
that is so not true in this instance. I jumped ahead 2 book to read this one, because I wanted to know what happened between Chey and Eagle, that was a big mistake as I missed some pretty important back story points that have a direct impact on this story for Max.

That aside this was an intense and interesting story of learning to live with a horrible past and moving on from it. Its also about trust in the strength of your partner. Watching eagle healing was hard and I am hoping at some point we find out why Jackson used Eagle as his whipping boy. Seeing Max's struggle to was interesting as it was an understandable insecurity considering he was going into a relationship with two people but I do wish I had not read this out of sequence as I would have understood it last section of the book more but I will be remedying that today by reading the 2 books that came before this one right now!
