Without Reservations by JL Langley is one of my all time favorite books. If I had to rate it, Without Reservations would be 5+ Kisses and a Desert Island Keeper.
There are several reasons why I love this book. Without Reservations was one of the first M/M shifter books I read. I remember when I bought it and read it I couldn’t believe how fresh and interesting it was. I had never really read anything like it within this genre before and once I finished it, I immediately read it again.
Although it’s been released for a while now, I still believe this book stands the test of time. For one, Ms. Langley really writes amazingly well-written characters that not only live and breathe off of the written page, I almost always fall totally in love with them. In this book, Chayton and Keaton made me laugh, cry and have that feel good feeling of watching two incredible people fall in love.
The chemistry between these two men are off the charts. Between Chayton’s laid back personality and Keaton’s southern charm these men are truly perfect together. Even now, years later, they are still one of my all-time favorite couples and probably always will be.
Also, Ms. Langley created a very interesting pack world and pack mentality. It’s intriguing and very interesting to see how the pack lives, functions and has harmony with one another. All of her characters really bring something special to the story and once you start this book, you won’t be able to stop until you read the last word.
Without Reservations is definitely one of my top ten all-time favorite books. If you haven’t read it, please check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

Sometimes love just catches you by the tail…
Chayton Winston is a veterinarian. He is also a werewolf. Much to his Native American parents chagrin, he has always dreamed of a fair-haired, Caucasian mate. However, he never imagined his mate would be male. As a heterosexual man, he’s not quite sure what to do with a male mate, but more than willing to find out.
Keaton Reynolds wakes up, in wolf form, and finds himself with a mate. He’s instantly attracted, but not so thrilled to find out the man is straight. Having been in a relationship once before where his partner professed to be “Not gay” left a bad taste in his mouth. Keaton wants to make a break for it and pretend he never set eyes on Chay—but Chay is not ready to let him go.
Together the two work to solidify their shaky relationship and battle the prejudices against homosexuals. Chay must deal with not only his mother’s prejudices against gay men but also her hatred of white people. When a power struggle in Keaton’s pack threatens Keaton’s life, the two men learn to depend on one another and their relationship to get them through it.
