Ethan Parks has known since he was in school that he’s gay.  However, because of his slight build and nerdish attire, Ethan has always been a target for guys who want to pick on a weaker person.  It doesn’t help that Ethan has never been comfortable with his sexual awareness and allows himself to be put down because of his lack of self-confidence. 

Crewe Jackson has known that Ethan was his mate since high school, but was told that he had to wait until both he and Ethan matured before claiming him.  Now Crewe is back in his hometown and he is not going to wait anymore.  When Crewe sticks up for Ethan one night, Ethan is confronted by the person of his high school dreams… only better.  Ethan can’t understand why Crewe wants to be around someone like him, but he gradually overcomes his doubts.  Crewe knows just what Ethan can be with love and confidence, now he just has to convince Ethan of it.  Because Crewe has something much larger to explain to Ethan eventually that may shake up his world.

Midnight Howl relates to Ethan coming to terms with his sexuality and gaining the self-confidence to be comfortable with his lover.  Crewe has always been a strong person and confident of his choices.  Crewe chose Ethan long ago and now he will do everything in his power to have his mate accept him and their fated love.  Ms. Steele drew me into Midnight Howl pretty quickly and I was turning pages quickly to see what would happen with Ethan and Crewe.  My heart went out to Ethan more than once and I fell for Crewe because of his loving acceptance of Ethan, just as he was.  I cheered when Ethan sprang his surprise and knew they would be fine.   I can recommend Midnight Howl hands down as a must read.  I hope that Ms. Steele continues with the brothers and I will be watching for them.
