Finding Alpha by Sunny Day is the first book in the Silver Moon Wolves series.
Rhys wakens to find himself in a strange place and not knowing how he got there. The last thing he remembers is fighting for the position of pack alpha. Normally, he would be strong enough to win, but he knew that something was wrong when he began bleeding faster than his body was healing. His work with the Silver Moon Pack gave him the knowledge that he had been given something and he knew his friend Ben and the pack doctor were somehow involved. Rhys knows that they never can be trusted and he leaves his pack, never to return.
The Black Lake Pack is at an impasse. Their new Alpha Zane's crazy behavior is endangering everyone in their pack and they need to get rid of him. Three members (Don, Murray and Jason) devised a plan to ask Rhys to challenge Zane for leadership of their pack. They heard the rumors that he had been poisoned before his trial, but believe he is their only hope. Murray approaches Rhys, taking him outside to meet with Jason, the pack omega, where they ask him to kill their Alpha. Rhys agrees to think about it, until he is knocked unconscious, awakening with the pack healer, Don, on their land. Don isn't happy about Rhys arriving unconscious and when he finds out that Rhys is his mate, it makes the situation even more complicated. Will Rhys agree to help the Black Lake Pack even if it puts him in harm's way again? Can Don find the love he needs in Rhys?
This story began at a breakneck speed and never let up until the very end. It was incredulous how Rhys's pack would go to such lengths to prevent him, being a gay man, to become their alpha. I couldn't believe his supposed friends could poison him and feel no remorse about their actions. It was horrible to think that the only way for the members of the Black Lake Pack to get rid of Zane was to kill him. At least they felt bad about it, but Zane's out of control abuse of the pack left them with no choice. I felt bad for Don when he knew that Rhys was his mate because he knew it was the poison in Rhys system that prevented him from feeling their mating bond. It was fascinating how rules that the Silver Moon Pack had to follow, to keep all werewolves safe, made it almost impossible to interfere with inner pack issues, even an insane alpha. I would think that maintaining secrecy isn't any more important than the inner safety of a pack. I can't wait to learn more about the Silver Moon Pack and its members.
