Irons in the Fire by Lyra Evans

Two Alphas, drawn together and pushed to the edge of the Worlds...

Lane Irons, Alpha of the Seventh Sector of Connor’s Court, only has time for one kind of love in his life—love of his pack. He sleeps around because he has no interest in a long-term commitment. It isn’t worth it. After all, his pack comes first, and Lane’s pretty sure he’s going to be leading them alone for the rest of his life.

But when a new family joins Lane’s pack, they bring with them more trouble than anyone expected. One of the children isn’t a child at all, and Lane isn’t ready for just how gorgeous—and dangerous—this twenty-one-year-old Werewolf is.

Full-grown and now of age to challenge, Phoenix Weston is a born Alpha, and he plans to make a name for himself. It’s no secret that he intends to challenge Lane for Alpha, constantly questioning Lane’s every move.

Travelling to the Samhain festival in the Fae Court should mean relaxation—sun, surf, and sex. But Phoenix’s habit of making Lane’s blood boil, in more ways than one, means relaxation is not in the cards. As tensions rise between them, Lane is running out of options to handle Phoenix. Seeing their fight coming to a head, a mischievous Fae offers a solution—a challenge.

But the challenge is unlike anything they can imagine and dangerous beyond reckoning, walking the line between the veils of the worlds and shaking loose feelings Lane works hard to forget.
Can they work together long enough to make it out? Or will their stubbornness cost them their lives? Pasts and futures collide, and Lane may find that this time, he’s at the mercy of his heart.

Irons in the Fire is a steamy, standalone m/m fantasy romance with a HEA and no cliffhangers. It is set in the world of the Three Courts and follows the events of the Worth Series. It is not necessary to have read the Worth Series to enjoy this book. It includes, Werewolves, Wizards, Fae, a masquerade, coarse language, and explicit sexual content. It is not appropriate for readers under 18 years of age.

I don't really know how I feel about this book.

Lane is the alpha of his pack, but seems to spend most of his time getting drunk and sleeping around. None of that is very alpha-like; throughout the book I got the feeling there was a story there, which we find out later on.

Phoenix has a plan, he is going to challenge for alpha, which means he will have to fight Lane. The problem is he is quite flirty with him, so will he really want that? I found Phoenix to be very annoying and I didn't feel there was much chemistry between him and Lane.

The most exciting part of the book was the last 10%, then it just seemed end just when it was getting good. I'm a little disappointed.

Lyra Evans has been making up stories since she was a kid and writing them down since her best friends informed her that was actually a career. Though plot and fantasy are what drive her worlds, she's got a particular love for M/M romance that she can't quite kick (though who would want to?). She tries her best to mix those three elements in her novels. A lover of books, games, food, and travel, she's always excited to try something new.
