A sensitive wolf shifter and a vicious vampire challenge history, greed, and the very fabric of their beings in order to stay together until forever comes.
Plagued by pain and weakness all his life, Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter who can't shift. Hoping to find an honorable death by joining his packmates in a vampire attack, Ethan instead learns two things: Draining his blood releases his pain and his wolf, and he has a true mate: a vampire named Miguel.
More than four centuries old, strong, powerful, and vicious, Miguel Rodriguez walks through life as a shadow, without happiness or affection. When a young shifter tells Miguel they're true mates, destined to be together, Miguel sends him away. But Ethan is persistent, and being together comes so naturally that Miguel can't resist for long. The challenge is keeping themselves alive so they can stay by each other's side until forever comes.

My Until Forever Comes Review . . .
Let's start with I freakin' adored the narrator. His Miguel's voice and accent were awesome and the ability to go back and forth between that accent and a southern accent was great. The whole time I was listening to this story, I had the biggest grin on my face, I adored it.
Ethan Abbatt is a young adult wolf shifter, whom hasn't ever been able to shift. They don't know why he can't, but this disability has caused the others in the pack to look down on Ethan. His sister, knows that Ethan is made for bigger and better things, just doesn't know what they are.
One night Ethan, finds himself with some of the other young pack members in the city Kfarkattan, where they stumble across some vampires. Immediately the vampires traumatize the shifters by draining them since they can't feed off them or they will die. For Ethan that blood draining changes everything.
Even while bleeding out, when Miguel Rodriguez, comes near Ethan, his lower appendage starts coming to life. Which is a new phenomenon for Ethan. After this new finding, he also finds himself able to shift for the first time as well, which saves his life.
Knowing something huge has changed in his life causes him to go back and find Miguel. When he does find him, he realizes that Miguel is on a feeding frenzy and in danger. Miguel too is intrigued with this young wolf, but doesn't know what to make of the situation.
Ethan quickly realizes what Miguel is to him, all he has to do is convince Miguel of it. I quite adored these two together. This story wasn't heavy but really sweet. It's about fate and things meant to be, even if they are the most unlikely scenario.
The only downfall for audiobooks for me, is not being able to save great quotes. But in the end, I thought it was cute and adorable and I loved Miguel and Ethan together. They completely balanced each other out.
