MY REVIEW OF WOLF’S MATE
This book was sent free for honest review by the publisher. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Danger shouldn’t be this sexy…
Cougar shifter Abby Carter always plays it safe. That’s why she’s an accountant–no excitement, no danger, and no cocky alpha males. She loves her quiet life, but fate has other plans. When Abby uncovers the shady dealings of an anti-shifter organization, she’ll have to trust the too-sexy-for-her-peace-of-mind werewolf Declan Reed… or end up six feet under.
Declan Reed is starting over. After two years with Shifter Operations Command, it’s time to put his past behind him. Now Declan is the only thing standing between the gorgeous Abby and an early grave, and if he’s going to have any chance of keeping her alive, he’ll have to embrace the darkness he’s fought to keep at bay. But first he has to convince Abby that there’s no safer place in the world than the arms of a big bad werewolf.
Shifter romances are some of my all-time favorite paranormal reads, and I found WOLF’S MATE by Celia Kyle to be a solid entrance into a new world of furry characters. It wasn’t my favorite shifter romance, but I had a great time getting to know the cast of Kyle’s newest series, Shifter Rogues.
To summarize: SHOC Team One is on a mission to uncover proof of FosCo and its controlling intrest holder, Eric Foster, funding United Humanity (UH)—A terrorist organization whose goal is to wipe shifter out of existence. In staking out FosCo, Declan and the team familiarize themselves with the late nights cougar shifter Abby Carter spent auditing FosCo. One night she accidentally stumbles upon more information than she was supposed too and catches the eyes of UH. Now she must rely on Declan and his crew to keep her alive while they uncover more dirt on the shady dealings of FosCo.
The shifters of WOLF’S MATE were all so much fun! I enjoyed the antics of Team One, and felt great pity for Birch, the team’s Alpha responsible for keeping the hunky hooligans in line. Honestly, I had more love for the team than the main characters. Not to say I had issues with them, they just didn’t make a huge impact.
Sparks were flying the minute Declan laid eyes on Abby, there was lots of heat, but the romance was slow-moving. So slow I wanted to yell, “JUST FUCK ALREADY!!,” but life, danger, and Declan’s cockblocking teammates had other plans. There was lots of heat with little action, which made this reader a bit cranky at times.
WOLF’S MATE was an entertaining read with a fun crew of shifters. There was oodles of humor a girl couldn’t help chuckle along with and the loveable shifters of Team One left me itching for more. I recommend shifter fans to snag a copy for themselves, and cannot wait to read more of the Shifter Rogue series!
