Silver/Steel (Arcada #2) by Belinda McBride

When dream hunter Dylan Ryve spots a beautiful shapeshifter raising hell in a bar, he knows he wants the wild young man. But Travis Feris is more to Dylan than a few hot minutes outside in the snow; he's the assassin's ticket into the magical town of Arcada. He didn't plan to rescue the kid, but when he found the shifter being attacked, the opportunity to play hero was too good to pass up.

Through the solitude of a long winter night, Dylan walks in Travis's fevered dreams, learning about Arcada and the pack, and showing the shifter the man he'd been so very long ago. When morning comes, both men know their lives will be forever entwined.

From Dylan, Travis learns that he is a strong, valued member of the pack. The dreamwalker sees his own worth reflected back at him in the dark blue eyes of the wolf. Yet when Dylan has the chance to free himself from centuries of enslavement, can he betray the man he has come to love

3/5 stars

Definitely didn't like this book as much as the first.  Travis seemed like an immature teenager (doing drugs, starting fights, random hook-ups, etc.) instead of someone we're suppose to take seriously and root for them to have a HEA.  I also got really bored with the dream walking scenes.  Maybe I'm being unfair to the characters because I just didn't care about them.  I mean we met them in a bar and they're both checking out chicks to hook-up with even though they're drawn to each other. Some stuff happens to bring them together and it was traumatic (or would've been to the average person) instead they decide to mess around then they're pretty much a couple.  Most of the book wasn't even about them.  I felt as if their story was back ground or filler til the next book.  Just wasn't to happy with it.
