Series: Takhini Wolves #1
Published by Samhain Publishing
I am under the impression that this is a spin-off series of the Granite Lake Wolves series, however it felt like a continuation. Which is a great thing because I do love the feel of this series and the personalities and characters are always entertaining. But now we are dealing with a different pack.
Shaun was feeling a bit down, what with everyone finding their mates and being happy, that he gets plastered at the bar and his Alpha, Evan, has to take him to the local motel he owns to sleep it off. At the same time, Gem happens to stroll into town because she is going on a wildlife expedition for her research. Who she happens to find? Shaun. Who might he be? Yep. Her Mate. He is also the pilot taking her on her expedition which puts them in close proximity for a few days.
This was a very cute story. Shaun was sexy and funny, laid back but possessive at the same time. Smart enough to give her space when she needed it. She’s from Georgia, where werewolves are pretty much shot on sight, has lived a sheltered and pampered life, and ohhh she’s an heiress. The dynamics of their relationship worked well because she is still a very down to earth girl, low maintenance and would fit in with the pack life of the Takhini wolves.
Even though they jump quickly in bed, as I’ve come to expect with these books when they find their mates, the relationship building was slow and progressed well throughout the book, as they went through obstacles and some danger together.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
