  • Happily Adopted: Cam and Ajay were adopted by Jag's father after marrying their mother. So in actuality, Cam and Ajay were adopted into the Wolfe family.

  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Each book becomes loaded with more and more characters with secondary and less-than-secondary characters receiving full plot arcs.
  • Missing Mom: Cam and Ajay's biological mother has gone missing right before the events of Always.

  • Promotion to Parent: Maggie becomes her niece's legal guardian. Cam as well.
  • Rape as Backstory: Maggie.
  • Rule of Romantic: Most of the relationship between Cam and Maggie in Always. Some of the things Cam does would probably make most women run far, far away.

  • Shed the Family Name: Cam and Ajay take on their step-father's last name (Wolfe) because they want absolutely no association with their abusive alcoholic father.

  • Social Services Does Not Exist: Or else Maggie and Cam wouldn't be the first choices for Bree, but Maggie does come from a wealthy family (not to mention her father is the Mayor of Cut And Shoot.)
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: Cam.

  • Tangled Family Tree: Cam and Ajay were adopted by Doug Wolfe, Jag's father; Cam and Ajay's biological mother and grandmother have gone missing before the events of Always; and while Cam is the main caretaker of Gramps, he's not even his biological grandson.

  • There Are No Therapists: Cam killed his own father who was violently abusive to his mother and little brother Ajay when they were young, and Ajay even starts a violent gang in high school, yet no one tends to want to talk about these dark past and so they deal with them privately.
