Determined Mate, Holland Brothers, 2 by Toni Griffin is Ms. Griffins second book in the Holland Brothers series. Although it can be read on its own I believe you may enjoy getting to know the characters better with reading the first book.
Jason Matthews life is a mess. His parents have disowned him and his pack has banished him all because he's gay. But what's even worse is he was brutally assaulted while out one evening.
Jason's only thought is to get to his best friend Brian. A few weeks earlier Brian was banished by his family and pack. Now Brian has a new home a new pack and best of all a mate to call his own. Jason knows if anyone can help him it's Brian.
When Jason arrives at Brian's home he is not only reunited with his best friend but he meets his mate, Brains' brother in law and Leyburn Alpha, Alex Holland.
Alex can't believe the sexy young man who is crying his heart out in Brains' arms is his mate. He knows something very bad has happened to his mate. But Alex is determined to prove to Jason that he can trust him and that Alex will do anything to keep Jason safe.
This book will remind you that no matter what true friends are always someone you can count on. And once you find the other half of your soul they will always be there for you.
I look forward to reading Simon and Ricks stories the last two Holland brothers. Hopefully we won't have to wait long.
Jason Matthew's is a broken man. He's lived through hell and barely come out the other side. All he can thing about is getting to his best friend, Brian, after that he has no idea. Jason's scared out of his mind when he's met by not only Brian but two large men as well, he does the only thing he can think to do. He tries to run. One of the men, though, turns out to be his mate.

Alex Holland is forced to stand by and watch as Jason is taken to the safest place they know, too scared to be around him. He knows something bad has happened to Jason and he's going to need every ounce of his Alpha control to give his mate the time he needs to heal and start living again.
