Sassy Mates Series Book 2

Mission: Don't fall in love

After an explosive night of passion during a scenting ceremony, Karla Alves is sure she was just a one night stand for the man she'd been crushing on for years. She teased him and pleased him, and Nate hasn't been around since. Her fear of becoming clingy kept her from risking her heart and asking for more than a few hours of skin sin.

Mission: Crack her walls

She. Is. His. Nathan Wolfe marked Karla. His mate. Deeply involved in pack politics, Nate has had to stay away. When his sister warns that Karla needs him more than he thinks, he'll discover a bundle of secrets only his wolf can sniff out. But getting the woman he cares about to let down her guard may prove to be his undoing.

Mission: Embrace the bite

With Karla's wayward sister wreaking havoc and friends needing more of his time than ever, Nate will have to rearrange his priorities if he ever hopes to earn Karla's trust. But will time with her be enough? Only true love and a wolf's promise can hold together a relationship created with a bite, a scenting, and a hope for tomorrow.

Another great read i didn't want to put it down, steamy sex scenes, great fight scenes,some suspense and a sister you wouldn't want to be related to. I loved Nate it was great to see different sides to him and how he handled situations. Karla is a interesting character to learn more about and is running scared before of the upbringing she had. We have sexy wolves, family dramas and great friendships bringing together a great book and can't wait for the rest in this series.

Once Bitten, Twice as Scared! Our 5 sassy women are back again! Now that Jordan and Aric have mated, it's time for another couple, Karla and Nate, to fall. But this one is a little different, she is scared he won't really commit based on her mother's experience with men. Not to mention someone still seems to be after Jordan and Kass, Karla's identical twin, shows up to cause problems. And now a bit about the story... We start at the same scenting ceremony from book one, but this time "Spot" (aka Nate) sneaks up on Karla. Before we know if they are naked and having a glorious time! Karla even gets a little bite out of it to mark her as his. Of course she doesn't know this and then all hell breaks loose. It's three weeks later before she even sees or hears from him, little does she know he stops by at night just to check on her and be near her... if only they would communicate! When rouges and humans start attacking the drama escalates ... tune into see who's up to no good this time!  Favorite Passages: - “Words,” she shrugged, “they’re easy to say. Actions speak louder, son. Your mate needs proof that you’re not going anywhere.” - Oh she wanted him bad. More than her next breath or even more than she’d ever wanted another man in her life. - “You’re a genius, Mom.” She grinned. “I know. Took your father all of thirty seconds tied to my bed to acknowledge it.” “Mom! I don’t want to hear that kind of stuff!” - My life is here, with people that love me for me, not for what they can get out of me.”

First let me say that while this book could stand alone alright, I highly recommend reading them in order to avoid confusion and unanswered questions.  It’s absolutely worth it! This book, like the last, puts a lot of value in family, regardless of blood relation.  The importance of friends and true family is so strong that it just makes you think of those you hold dear.  My only complaint is that Kelvin is such a fun part of the beginning of the book that I was sad when he just sort of falls off the radar in the second half. Other than that, the book is sexy as hell and incredibly sweet.  The plot is interesting and keeps you engaged in both the moment and the big picture.  I really want more action on Caleb’s front and I can’t wait for that story.  The rest of the characters are each as addicting and I can’t wait for all of their stories. This one started off with the same scenting ceremony from the first book before fast forwarding to pick up where book one  left off, so I am curious to see how the others go in the regard as well! A Mate’s Bite is a wonderful installment in what promises to be a delicious, fun, and exciting emotional ride of a series from Milly Taiden.

Sometimes the cover catches your eye or sometimes it is the blurb, but for me it is the name of the author that catches me for this book. Author Milly Taiden delivers once again. “A Mates Bite” (Sassy Mates) by author Milly Taiden is the second in the Sassy Mates series and I can honestly I think it is hotter than the first. I love Nate for just being him. He is not the alpha of the pack but he is an alpha in his life. He knows what he wants and goes for it. Karla is a wonderful caring person who is just right for Nate. This is one hot couple. In fact, there is one scene that I really, really loved (you will know the part when you get there trust me). The scene was well amazing. Not only does Milly Taiden write great main couples but also secondary characters that are just as great in a different way. I know that you will think that same when you read the book. This reader totally recommends “A Mates Bite” by author Milly Taiden but also the first in the series “Scent of a Mate”. You will totally love the books. I will continue to look for books by Milly Taiden because she is one wicked writer, who knows how much this reader loves her alpha males.

I love Nate and Karla!! Karla has learned from her past to not count on men and she has closed herself off from emotional ties! The only problem is her attraction to her friends brother, Nate! After the night of the scenting ceremony everything changes and Nate marks Karla.. is it happily ever after? Will Nate be able to break down the walls around Karla's heart? Will he be able to protect her from the danger that is lurking around? This book was full of danger, love, betrayal, family and learning to trust!! Excited to see what happens next!!

Once again Milly Taiden does it again. Fan-freaking-tastic book. Couldn't put it down, but I had to at times. This is yet another hot and sexy book. This one focuses on Karla and Nate. But starts off at the scenting ceremony just like "Scent of a Mate". The pack is still having troubles, but Nate makes time for Karla. Karla has had issues with men and family all her life, and has a hard time letting him in, but boy when she does its full blown! Karla and Nate are hot! Nate is hot sexy wolf. Loved this story of Nate and Karla. Not sure which book is my favorite. But I know my hubby loves when I read a book by Milly Taiden! This book will get you hot, then angry and ready to shift and tear someone apart. This author really tells a story that you get into and feel everything the characters do. When Karla's sister was confronting her, I felt Karla's guilt and rage I also felt Jordon's rage and wanted to be the one holding Kass up against the wall threatening her!!! I felt Karla's fear when they were threatened. The only girls in the "group" that we really see in this book are Jordan and Karla. Ellie, Emma and Nicole are mentioned but not present. Highly recommend you read and take this journey to know more about the Wolfe family and meet Karla.

Wow this book was so awesome I could not put it down from the beginning to the end. Nate is trying to prove that he loves her and will be there no matter what her child hood was like, he wants to show her love. This story is action packed with a lot of emotional turns that keep you wanting to read. Milly Taiden did a wonderful job in her second book to the Sassy Mates series. This book has such a great story line and strong characters. You will not want to miss this book and you might want to pick up Scent of mate.

~ 5 A Mate’s Bite Stars ~  A Mate’s Bite is book two in a Sassy Mates series by Milly Taiden. We start off with another women at the scenting ceremony, which was introduced/explained to us in Scent of a Mate This is another fabulous installment to the Sassy Mates series. We never have a dull moment from the first page to the last. Karla has never seen a good relationship growing up, which has caused her to erected walls. It was easy to relate to Karla and her situation. It's something that can happen in life. Nate the only man whom she has had feelings for has his work cute out for him, especially after the scenting ceremony where he ends up having to take care of pack business instead of spending time with his one true mate. Both characters complemented each other and watching them open up and let the other in was nice. The sexual chemistry is of the charts hot. The sex is steamy and well written. Their of course is still trouble with rogues in the area and attacks, so we have no shortage of action either. This was a nice addition to this series and I am look forward to reading more. If you enjoy hot Alpha werewolves, then this is one you don’t want to miss.

I want to preface the following reviews by saying that I am not a true fan of erotica, I find that it can often get coarse and lapse into unnecessary description of the act of sex, without touching on any romance or emotional levels for the characters. I am happy to say that Taiden has managed to fully develop her rutting wolves into compassionate characters with hearts of gold. Yes, there is a lot of sex involved in both books, but you cannot help but falling in love with the Wolfe brothers, and the entire Wolfe family for that matter. We cannot forget sister, Ellie; nor mom and dad. Normally I would segregate the reviews into two parts, but I feel that the two books compliment each other so well that they shouldn't be parted. What begins in Scent a Mate is the story not just of a couple coming together after years of tormenting themselves; but the beginning of a family saga. The Wolfe family, and leaders of the pack, hold everyone that is dear to them, close to their hearts and their souls. Through a delightful attention to detail and character development, Taiden introduces all of the characters in what I hope will be a beautiful series, touching each member of the family. I am seeing an epic saga in my mind, and can only hope that Taiden has it within her to cover each family member; and then bring us an epic conclusion. Am I asking too much? Yes, these are books that clearly fall into the erotica category, but unlike so many novels before that fall short in plot and story development; Taiden has blasted into the realm of dramatic story with a compliment of steamy sex scenes that...honestly, will make your panties damp. Yes, you heard that here. My own wolf better watch out tonight, he may get ravaged. Minor issues with fact consistency and odd phrase selections, left the stories lacking the ability to earn the coveted 5 Star reviews; but without a doubt I am honored to say that both rank at a 4.5 Star level.

This book got me finished reading it in one sitting. A Mate's Bite is the second series of Sassy Mates which can be read as a stand alone but it's better to read it in order. I haven't read Scent of Mate (Sassy Mates #1) but it doesn't mean I didn't enjoy reading A Mate's Bite. Karla and Nate's relationship is very sweet but at the same time hot, sexy, and very erotic. Karla's story was very emotional and although it affected her and Nate's relationship I'm glad that she was able to overcome it and that Nate (thankfully he followed his mother's advice) was able to break down the walls surrounding Karla's heart. I liked that Karla was able to stand up for herself even if Kass (I really hate her and good riddance that they washed their hands off her) was the one who also helped open eyes and that she finally let go of her insecurities and trust both herself and Nate. It is nice to see what good friendship can do with the support of her mate's family. They got her back and I'm glad she finally realized it. I can't wait for the rest of the series. It would be interesting to know how the other couples get together. I received a copy.

A super hot, sweet, and lovely romance, A Mate's Bite was a wonderful read. I really liked this book. It was a truly enjoyable romance read. Both of the main characters were great. Karla was tough and unwilling to let anyone walk all over her. But, she was also kind and willing to forgive if given a reason to. I really liked her. Nate was very sweet and loyal to those he cared about. I really liked him, too. The romance was very hot. The chemistry was just sizzling between these two. And, they were also very sweet together. I thought they were a lovely couple. The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. The problem of Kass (who was a total psycho) kept me on the edge of my seat, with all the chaos the selfish shrew caused. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely. A Mate's Bite was a fantastic paranormal romance. I really liked this book. Romance lovers, if you want something hot, then this is a book you have to check out. *I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review

Nate has been busy with pack business and has had to put being with Karla on hold. Even though it is killing him. She is his mate. On their night together he Mate Marked her. Then he gets a call from his sister that he needs to go to Karla now. That she needs him. So he puts the pack business on the back burner and puts Karla first. Karla's sister comes to visit but it is not a happy visit. Her sister brings nothing but trouble with her. Can Nate prove to Karla that he wants to be with her? I was hooked from the start. I loved it! This is a great book. This is the first book that I had read by Milly and I am a huge fan now. I can't wait to read more in this series! I definitely recommend reading. This book can be read as a stand alone. ' Read and Reviewed by LSK Sweetheart Reviews '

A Mate's Bite is Milly Taiden's second book in her Sassy Mates series. Each book can be read as a stand alone book but the series does feature recurring characters so I definitely recommend reading Scent of a Mate first. In A Mate's Bite, Karla Alves is in love with one of her best-friend's brothers and has been for seven years. Nate Wolfe secretly returns her feelings and has decided to finally make his move at a wolf scenting ceremony. Wolf politics, terrible siblings, and some bad wolves don't make the relationship easy, just very very interesting. I loved the first book but I will have to say I enjoyed this book even more. Milly builds up her wolf world even more with so many future possibilities, love to look forward to future romances. I especially loved Karla's triplet brother and I so hope Milly is planning a story for him. Highly recommend this book and this series!

Book two finds us back watching the scenting ceremony and it's just as hot! The one liners are better than book one. Karla is our heroine and she is wary of relationships and men. Nate is one hot shifter who know who he wants and isn't afraid to go after her. Mate has to work for her affection and the end result is fabulous! As typical of Milly Taiden series books you get to visit with old friends and follow along with their life. Lots going on there! I read this book in one sitting and couldnt get enough! A Mate's Bite (Sassy Mates Series - Book 2)You have to love a man who opens his whole life for a woman. The sex is hot, the story fabulous and I want more already!!!

I will be the first to admit that Karla and her commitment and attachment issues remind me of myself before i met my husband. Her mother is nutz and so is mine. needless to say i was able to strongly relate to the characters in this second installment of Milly Hottness!. Loved It! the small teases about the other fantastic four Wolfe brothers makes me want the next book asap. Read it folks!
