Even though months had passed since they’d seen each other, the sparks haven’t dimmed one bit. When they finally met again, it was only natural that they end up horizontal on one of the coalition’s more popular conference tables.Just as they are sure there is no doubt they are destined together, their older brothers intervene and tear them apart. Not because Colby is a Lion shifter. It’s not because Tobias is a Wolf shifter either. The reason for their split can be summed down to two words—they’re runts. And in the shifter world, runt equals weak and vulnerable. It’s only natural that their older siblings are overprotective.The one thing that their brothers fail to see is that Colby and Tobias are determined to be together, even if that means defying their elders. Will everybody finally see how perfect Colby and his little Wolf are for each other? Or will the pair have to resort to drastic measures to have any kind of happiness?...

    Wolf shifter, Tobias & Lion shifter, ColbyTobias and Colby’ families don’t like the fact that they want to be together - although they are very attracted to each other. The problem is not that they are different species or that they are both same sex. The problem is that none of them is a protector. In a predators’ world, the scrawny and the weak simply do not survive. But these two are determined to be together and their love will be stronger than any doubt. A quick, sweet story. And finally an MM shifters’ book where none of the two main chactarers is an Alpha.

    3.0 Stars (would've been 4 stars but for...)Ever since I met Colby, I've been waiting for his story. And, I was hoping that Tobias would be his mate. So I was excited about this installment. I really enjoyed both characters. Both are runts of their litters with overprotective brothers. Both have insecurities and issues they needed to overcome. I loved watching them navigate these waters. This book would've garnered 4 stars except, I had some serious gripes: 1) Russell - he totally betrayed Tobias when he (view spoiler)[unilaterally and without even talking to Tobias decided to submit to Chris and rejoin their old bigoted pack. I get that Chris is all PC now and Cassie has promised to help tow the line but, I'm sorry, eff that! Some of the bastards that literally kicked Russell and Tobias to the curb are still part of the pack. That's royally f*cked up. (hide spoiler)] I wanted to read about Russell and Tobias' reconciliation (if any) and how Russell proposed to make amends for being such a prick. But nope. It was all swept under the rug. Lame! 2) Editing or the lack thereof. I'm sorry but this book was chock full of editing errors. I've cut SH a lot of slack in this series but this book was too much. It was downright pathetic. I should get some money back, it was that bad.Bottom-line: great characters and a wonderful story line marred by non-existent editing (come on, spell check is naught but one click of the mouse) and an underdeveloped plot regarding Russell and Tobias.

    While Colby and Tobias aren’t my favorite couple (my heart belongs to Shane), I do like both and was eagerly awaiting their story. When I heard it was getting pushed back 2 weeks, I was upset but I understood why the author pushed it back. I’d rather wait the 2 weeks and get a better book than get an inferior one earlier. That being said, I think she should have pushed it back another week or two. Why? The numerous grammar errors. At times it was difficult to get into the story because the errors would just jump out at me and distract me. Now, saying that, I am a natural editor. What I mean by that is that everything I read, I just naturally edit in my head (made reading Twilight difficult). There were so many misspellings, repeated words, incorrect names, weird sentences that didn’t make sense, punctuation errors, etc. It seemed to me like it hadn’t been edited (and if it had, it might be time to find a new editor). Now I’ll admit, I am a bit of an anal editor and even the littlest mistakes can bug me, but this was just painful. I had such a difficult time with this book because as soon as I’d start to get into the story, I’d run into a paragraph or two that had several mistakes and it would just stop me in my tracks. Or I’d have to stop and work out what a sentence was supposed to say compared to what was actually written (including figuring what names were supposed to be their instead of the ones used at times), which was extremely distracting.Another problem I had was the length. Now, you can write a good book in a hundred pages and Ms. Hecht has that down to an art form. However, I felt that this one needed to be longer. We didn’t see a whole lot of the overprotective brothers or Colby and Tobias having to sneak around them. We were told it happened, but I would have liked to see them sneak out on an actual date, not just a sex session at the park. Another thing we didn’t see a lot of was how people treated runts differently. We heard about it from Tobias, but didn’t see much actually happening to him or Colby. And the big drastic measures? Happened in like 5 pages, which was anti-climatic for me. I was waiting for Colby and Tobias to come up with some big grand scheme to prove to their brothers they were meant to be together and could take care of each other, and I didn’t get it. Heck, if I were Russell and Thomas, I would be more worried about my brothers after what happened, not less.Now, the last problem I had is more of a personal one (in that it goes against my mindset) and other readers may not agree with this. I had a problem with Russell going back to his old pack (Chris’ pack). I had him in my head as a big powerful Alpha, and to see that change…I get that he changed for Dalton and his cubs and I respect that and loved that he changed for the better in going legit. This though…in my mind, there’s a rule for good Alphas: once an Alpha, always an Alpha. A true Alpha doesn’t and can’t just shut that part of themselves off without something truly traumatic happening and even then it is still a huge part of them, and it was a bit jarring to see Russell do that. It’s especially odd to me since for a while, Russell’s pack refused to rejoin with Chris’ pack and now they’re going to merge because they were attacked? After all the crap they went through with the pack kicking them out for being gay? And just because you change the rules and say that you can’t discriminate against the gay members now, that doesn’t change people’s feelings or the way they treat you when the Alpha’s not looking. And after all the crap the guys went through, I would never return to that pack. I would rather go live with the coalition or find a new pack. And for Russell to do that to Tobias? I get that he needed to protect his family, but there were others ways he could have done so without returning to Chris’ pack. However, it now remains to be seen whether or not everything will work out with the merging of the packs. Now on that note, I have to say, I loved seeing the true Dulla. She just became one of my favorite characters and seeing her like this helped save the book a bit for me. I also enjoyed the glimpse at the real Dominic, not the happy-go-lucky, ladies’ man we’d seen so far. I am now very eagerly awaiting his story.Now onto judgment time. Aside from all these problems, I did enjoy the book and am eagerly awaiting the next one. It truly pained me to write this review since I love Ms. Hecht’s books, especially this series. But to me, this was her worst Lost Shifters book to date and what kills me is that it didn’t have to be. I think that if Ms. Hecht had taken more time with this book, even a week more, and not rushed to get it to her fans, it could have been much better. I’m a big fan and I would have waited for a better book with fewer errors and more details. I would still recommend this book, especially to fans of the series and to anyone who hasn’t read the series; I definitely recommend that you give it a shot. This one wasn’t her best work but the series is amazing and is worth the time and money. Don’t let this book fool you.And on that note, I’m just hoping that the next book is much better.

    This has pulled me back into this series, I really have loved all the different shifters. Yes,I find them all too short, but I can't keep away from the shifters. This story has been so well woven together.

    Warning: I adore the Lost Shifter Series, I’m one of those people that have loved the 1st book all the way through the 17th book and keep coming back for more. If you don’t like Hecht’s formula, or are just plain tired of the shifters then this book isn’t for you. I recommend reading a Very Shaney Valentine if you’re a Shane fan (ah Shane Shane!) but for those of you eagerly awaiting the next break in reality Colby and the Little Wolf was pretty good.With Hecht’s books readers have always known who is the top and who is the bottom right away. Usually her alpha heroes are paired with more slender adorable heroes even though they often save each other. In Colby and the Little Wolf Hecht has given us two ‘runts’, and younger brothers. Though Tobias is pretty hard core (hey he’s had to be to be Russell’s Beta) he’s so young he’s never shifted, and Colby is emotionally and physically fragile. They can’t seem to help but be drawn towards one another and go so far as to defy their older brothers and risk everything just to spend time together. I felt like Thomas was an absent semi villain. I loved his story with Chance, but in Colby’s story he only showed up once to yell in the conference room, and once in the hospital to agree that they belong together. I kinda wanted more, especially since he’s already mated and should have settled a bit, and I think Chance would have definitely had something to say about the way Thomas was behaving. Shane also made an appearance and of course any scene with Shane is going to be awesome, this was no exception. I am getting tired of the Ravens coming and then being beaten. I would love to have a sinister villain, maybe have another group of shifters kidnapped… just something to shake up the coalition. Regardless this was a cute quick read and I enjoyed that the two of them were not alphas, which made the bedroom scenes a bit different and interesting. Is Dulla going to get anyone? And when is Dominic’s book coming out? Any cute extra scenes with Shane and Trevor’s new little ward? And of course my two new favorite characters the Hawk Twins!!! What about them?

    .... I know I don't read Ms. Hecht's novels for anything stellar or awe-inspiring. I read because her novels are like crack, interesting plot filled with possibilities, it's just too bad the execution is not as good. And it seems that with each new Lost Shifters book, it gets worse and worse. Where is the editing? Where is the proofreading and consistency?? I was disappointed in this book. I give it 1.5 stars but I round it up to 2 because I'll probably continue to grudgingly read the next book. Like I said, this series is like crack. I know it's bad for me but I just can't help myself.

    2.5 but I'll bump it up to 3 because I really do like this series.Unfortunately this one seemed to have even more errors. First with names being mixed up. then with the words, for example can instead of can't, really made reading this a pain. Then we had a complete change in a previous characters personality and mental state. I still enjoy this series, I just wish a little more attention was paid to the details.

    Why is there a wolf on the cover? T can't shift yet and I picture him as white wolf. I don't know why, but that's how I see him if he ever does shift.I really liked the story. T and C were cute and I'm glad they ended up where they did. My only complaint is the editing. Several words were missing, names were switched, or sometimes the wrong word was used. It distracted me and several parts i had to re-read to see what it meant

    A 2-3 star read. Liked the portrayal of these two smaller shifters in this big, bad world. They were both down-to-earth without being little Napoleons or needing the ginormous, kick-arse Alpha mate to protect them. A nice change.Those stars will probably be moving around.Also, exactly how big is the compound? It's like the Tardis. I think I need a map. Get on to that, Steph.

    This book is about Colby, Thomas brother, and Tobias, Russell brother, and if I'm honest with myself this is my least favorite book. When I was reading this the first thing that came to my head when I was in the middle was, "what is this Romeo and Juliet only gay version and the big brother are in the way and neither one die in the end, but it was pretty close though." I wanted to give this book a chance because both are lovable characters that needed to fight for there own but I can't cause the plot was so bad that I skip a few chapters so go for the end. Not even the sex scene was enough to get my attention and that is saying something because I won't past that up for nothing. The only reason I did not give this book a two star is because of Dulla. I love her though the end when she put both big brothers in there place in the end and show them that she is no slow whittled person and see things better then they do.

    ** Mild spoilers? Perhaps? **Wow. The spelling is vaguely phonetic in spots.Repetitive again, so very much.Now, I understand that during writing information may be stated and restated as part of the flow, but that’s what editing is for: to clean up those redundancies. Any average reader shouldn’t have to be told something multiple times, such as how the pack hates Tobias and resents that he’s the second-in-command, due to being the alpha’s brother, and verbally picks on him. Leaving this in may bloat word count, but at best it makes the characters sound whiny and at worst it makes the reader irritated.Stupid, annoying retcon. Last time we saw Colby he was pining for his family, his parents. Now we find out they treated him like dirt. Sure.Eh. So these guys get to be versatile (finally!) But only by virtue of being small? That’s messed up.Almost every couple in this series had a bigger, older guy topping a younger, slimmer or shorter guy. Exceptions that I recall are Daniel and Brent who seem to be around the same size, and Shane and Trevor, where Shane is supposed to be shorter although the author sometimes forgot because Shane was the top. And then maybe Mitchell and his guy – but I only mention them because they were closer in age. And even with all of these the dynamics were still the same. Versatility does not exist; instead we get a fair bit of D/s sexually.This is frustrating. I mean, yeah, I’m happy that the author breaks this one rule, but the fact that it’s a pair of equally young and small men spoils the effect. I suppose in this series’ world big, buff or older guys don’t take it up the rear end.Hmpf.On the whole – while not offensive – this story proved to be a little lacklustre. The romance between Colby and Tobias felt as rudimentary and immature to me as it probably seemed to their brothers. And the sex? Age-appropriate, I’d guess – which doesn’t make for very good reading material, in this case.

    It feels like forever since I visited the Lost Shifters world and I've really missed it. There are so many things that I enjoy about this series and, let's face it, these are comfort reads for me. I'm fairly familiar with author Stephani Hecht's writing and her story lines progress pretty seamlessly. Shane and Andrew, main characters in other books in this series, remain some of my favorite all-time shifters, so I am always excited to jump back into their world.Ever since Tobias stepped onto the pages of this series, I've adored him. Born a runt, and brother to Russell, the alpha, Tobias has spent his whole life being ridiculed and hated by other shifters for his small size. Even though he's second-in-command, Tobias knows that honor is only because his brother is alpha. Most of their wolf pack resents Tobias for holding that position. This is why Russell and Tobias hide the secret of Tobias having asthma from the rest of the pack. The pack would surely tear Tobias apart if they knew he had even more weaknesses than just being small.Colby is a lion shifter and he's had it pretty rough the last months. Finally able to shift out of his lion form where he'd been trapped, Colby is afraid of just about everything and everyone. It has only been a year since Colby even found out about shifters, much less that he is one, and he's always scared he'll offend or upset someone because Colby doesn't know all the rules. He is also little, not at all like his big brother, and Colby tries to just stay out of the way. If only that hot wolf who kissed him at the Christmas party would come back. Hmm.Aaaawwwww I loved this installment! Tobias and Colby might be little but they're fighters and it took awhile but they were finally able to show their brothers that they can take care of themselves and each other. Vindication for the little guy! Not to mention that this wolf and lion were smoking hot together. Excellent addition to the series and I enjoyed it immensely.

    Colby and Tobias are both "runts." They are on the small size and there have been health troubles with runts. This makes them seem inferior to other shifters, some will just kill them as babies. I love that these are the two that get together.The plot makes sense in this world's context. These are shifters and they feel a little closer to their animal side so "only the strong survive" is a bit of a true motto. Colby and Tobias refuse to let that attitude drive them apart. They are not going to just let their older, stronger brothers get in their way. I do think they could have tried talking to the brothers more but they are young and in love...I liked the whole of the book and all the descriptive quality that the author brings to it. I do agree that Tobias's brother should have considered him more when he decided to do what he did. He really proved he didn't think of his brother as a true beta. I truly hope the two brothers can talk this out because I'm still a little upset myself!Overall a sweet read that just makes me happy.

    Okay, these two were adorable and their story was adorable and I don't even care how many cliches and tropes were in it because it was ADORABLE so just read the book. If you've gotten this far in the series you already know what to expect and this doesn't deviate from the established formula but Colby and Tobias are...you guessed it...ADORABLE.Russell and Thomas can have several seats though. Especially Russell. The way he straight up disrespected and disregarded Tobias when he (view spoiler)[ rejoined Chris's douchebag pack(hide spoiler)] was not cool. He lost MAJOR cool points with me. If anything he should have (view spoiler)[ merged w/Mitchell's coalition.(hide spoiler)]. His decision made ZERO sense and if I were Tobias we wouldn't be on speaking terms. *babbling non-review is babbling and non-reviewish*

    A cute little story about two runt, Colby the lion who was stuck in his lion form and Tobias, Russel's younger brother. Of course Colby's family doesn't want him hanging around an ex-con (or sorts) and the jackals are after the wolf pack (even though they are out of the crime biz now). However Colby and Tobias find a way to get together with the help of their friends/body guards. I do get extremely annoyed with how over-protective and stupid the older siblings/caretakers tend to be. They treat everyone like they are 8, not in their 20's. I kind of like the Dulla has gotten to be the smart one and steps up to impart wisdom the testosterone laden soldiers are too stupid to see. So it was a cute addition. These books are also a bit like crack, I keep buying them although this one had a few typos/editing issues.

    This was a great book and lots of fun to read, i hated how there brothers treated them and attempted to keep them away, but i thought it was cute and funny how they snuck off to have sex and mate in the woods while there guards stood out of earshot, and i thought it was so sad what russell decided to do at the end when he decided to merge his pack into cris's pack, i thought it sucked hed no longer be alpha but more so it was sad that he had to swallow his pride to do so, and that he forced his brother to decide between his pride and his pack because his brother couldnt forgive chri's pack for what they did when he came out as gay., but still a great book just like the rest of the series.

    Notes:Agrees dusters are a bad fashion statement! Cool that's runt is second in command even though it's really just a title. He's more than capable. Very sweet. Excellent action and peril for such a short book. I love having two small guys together since in my experience people in general (not always but in general) tend to date people comparable in height and looks. I wish they'd kept Dulla "dumb." I like the idea of having a developmentally disbled shifter. 4.25 stars.

    Great StoryI love the storyline and the characters, but the typos and grammatical mistakes take away from the enjoyment. Using the wrong name for a main character is unforgivable to me. I have to stop reading go back and check to see if I made the mistake. It takes away the fun factor.

    This is my first Twink & Twink romance. Usually it's an Alpha + Twink or two macho men. I love both Tobias and Colby. Tobias is especially macho bad ass but people do not see it because his brother Russell is very overprotective and coddles him. This is the cutest!!! I love how they moved in with the felines in the end. Awwww...

    This is one of my guilty pleasure series.I pretty much know what to expect, including typos, wrong names and word choices.Still, I like Colby and Tobias , and I liked that there wasn't a big tall strong alpha and a weaker,smaller mate.That made for a nice change.

    I'm giving 2,5 stars because it was to bland and simple. The storyline was boring and I was glad it when it finished. I was a bit disappointed because Colby seemed interesting but with such a plot, he became one of many.

    This is one of my favourite books in the series, because both of the are 'runt's it give a different perspective compared to when they are both physically built or where one is and not the other. For this reason I would love more books like these two characters or more books about these two :D

    I love the over all Lost Shifters series but I had to give this a low rating as it was just so blah and very very short. I'd downloaded it to read on a flight to Seattle from New York and I had it finished before I even got on the plane. Hope the next few books have a little more meat to them.
