Mission: Scent a Mate
Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best friend involved staking out the local wolf pack's scenting ceremony and recording the graphic details, but she was the writer and the only one with the balls to finish the task. No one would know that four human women had sneaked proof of their rituals, or at least, that was the plan until Aric Wolfe showed up.

Mission: Stake a Claim
Aric Wolfe knew his baby sister was up to something, and expected her best friend, Jordan, to be in on the chaos. He finally had an opportunity to lay claim to a mate that had been under his nose for years. Jordan's scent called to both the man and the animal, and he was done fighting the call of the beast. It was time to mark his mate.

Mission: Survive an Alpha
When a good intention creates a problem for the Wolfe family, Jordan finds herself being stalked by a woman intent on claiming Aric as her own. Battle lines will be drawn, love will be put to the test, and Aric will have to fight Jordan's strong personality to keep her alive. Two alpha hearts seeking control will either find the balance or risk losing their love forever.

Anyone who looks at my previous reviews will know that I am a fan of Ms. Taiden. However another thing they will note is that I do tend to be very critical as well. I set a certain standard and if that standard is not met, I have no problem stating it publicly. Such has been the case in the past. The characters were funny and likable. They were relatable in a way none of Ms. Taiden's previous characters ever have been. Jordan and the girls reminded me of my friends at that age. Hell, they remind me of certain friends of mine now. The women are strong and independent yet know when to ask for help. This very thing is what makes Aric officially my favorite shifter hero. He knew when to push and when to let Jordan stand on her own to feet. There were no "Me Tarzan, you Jane" moments here, much to my enjoyment. And the best part? Unlike too many of Ms. Taiden's heroines, Jordan isn't suddenly struck stupid the second she is mated. She is just as strong and independent after as is was before she and Aric get together. With enjoyable characters, a great plot and some action thrown in for good measure, this has got to be my favorite book by Ms. Taiden to date. I can't wait to see what kind of trouble the other girls get in to!

Milly Taiden sure knows how to burn up the pages! Wicked, sexy and wild………and that’s just the females!  Then we have the big, strong alpha Wolfe brothers who are often referred to as the sexy four. Well that’s when they’re not being called overbearing, macho pigs, who can’t see the problem with thinking you should happily tattoo their name on your body. You can see why the sparks are set to fly! Milly Taiden has once again written a scorching, fast paced (if I don’t get me one of those men I’ll die) story, that is sure to kick off a phenomenal new series. Now I get to fan myself waiting for book two!!

I really enjoy how protective and caring Aric was but loved sassy Jordan and her friends.Didn't want to put this down from start to finish and left me wanting the next book. Wow the sex scenes were hot and explosive .It was great meeting the new characters in this new series and looking forward to more. We got hot steamy sex, romance, suspense, mystery and great friendships.

Scent of a Mate by Milly Taiden is a paranormal romance novella featuring wolf shifter Aric Wolfe and human heroine Jordan. Scent of a Mate is the first book in Milly Taiden's Sassy Mate series. She does an excellent job of introducing characters and setting up the background for the future books in this series. Aric Wolfe has known his little sister's best friend Jordan is his mate for a long time and has decided now is the time to lay his claim. With the help of his sister (and unbeknownst to him his mother), Aric sets out to claim his mate. I won't spoil the story but I will say it has plenty of romance, interesting characters, a bit of suspense, and of course hot, hot, hot loving! Highly recommend this book. I received an ARC copy for an honest review.

Book is good but it just ends. Jordan and Aric are mated but that is it. It seems like well I do not know. The writing is good. Parts are funny. Great character development but it was like chapters were lost.

Oh my gosh!  I love Milly Taiden’s work but she has outdone herself on this book!  I have to say this book made me VERY happy the hubby went to bed early so I could continue reading.  I read this book in a couple of hours.  It is a fast read but packed with so much hotness.  The only complaint I had was that it ended!  I definitely can’t wait till the next book in the series.  This book had it all.  There was action, romance and definitely steamy love scenes!  I went to bed wishing the hubby had not gone to bed early!!  I think though the best part of this book was watching all the relationships grow and looking forward to how they will grow in the future!  A definite read for anyone who is looking for a hot paranormal shifter romance!!!

This is the most incredible book yet!  Milly has outdone herself this time for sure.  An amazing journey through every emotion you can think of.  I even cried at one point.  This book draws you in from page 1 and keeps you there until the end.  I can't say how incredibly awesome this book was.  If you want a book that is mind blowing here it is! It is an amazing roller coaster ride.

I am a fan of Milly Taiden, but I can say with 100% accuracy this is her best book ever! Scent of a Mate is about 5 wonderful, zany, funny, endearing woman who are close as sisters. Aric is a wolf, as is his whole family, his sister is one of the 5 woman. Her best friend Jordan convinces her to let the girls watch their mating ritual. The woman place themselves around the clearing to watch and videotape.... My favorite scene was when Arics mother tells Aric and his brothers, to search the area...exactly where the woman are hiding!!! OOOH the fun begins! The next scene was the hottest I have read in a long time! I loved the plot line, this book had more than hot sex, we had romance, suspense, mystery and friendship! I am hooked and cant wait for more! There isnt one chararcter in this story that is secondary, everyone captured my attention and makes me want to know more about them, including Arics parents! Be ready for a cold shower and some cuddling with your partner! You will need i

Scent Mate by Milly Taiden Reviewer: Kris (w/ I Heart Books) Rating: <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 From my own personal TBR list. I was jonesing for a shifter book and this hit the spot.  I haven’t met a Taiden book yet that I haven’t liked.   Shifters; strong, loyal… HOT! Just the way I like them. This story followed a more “true” shifter storyline, if there is such a thing, but there are always little twists. You get a good sense that the author is attuned with her characters and the world she has created. Jordan is a strong human female that has been friends with shifters most of her life. She has also had a crush on her best friend’s shifter brother all of that time. She was more or less adopted into this family as they helped care for and raise her. Jordan’s own parents were alcoholics and could not be counted on.  Aric is the best friend’s brother, and a hot piece of soon-to-be alpha. Like most alpha males he is very protective and possessive. But with that he knows Jordan’s personality and he doesn’t push for submissiveness from her. Not that I could imagine that. He works hard to show Jordan that he is the one. When it came to pack you got a sense of just how fair of a leader he would be. This book had crotch sniffing, tree climbing, mystery and great romance. There is some set up for future installments with secondary characters… at least that’s my hope.

This book was hot right off the bat! Milly's writing is just fantastic!  She keeps you on the edge of your seat with the pack action and the sex is just omg great! I loved the family topic in the story and the characters showed great depth.  The ending was way too much for me and I had to curse, but that was a good curse because she left you wanting more.

Scent of a mate was all that I thought it would be it was a great story line with great character. Love the story line with Aric and Jordan they are some explosive romance going on in there relationship and they are well made for each other. I like that his mother know that Jordan was his mate and that she did not say anything and his sister Emmie his she tries to protect Jordan from her big brother.I also like the fact that she does not know what she was marked as Aric during the mating ceremony that should have been watching. I looking for to reading the next book in this series because it would be nice to see what happens between Aric's brothers and Jordan's friends. This book is one sexy romance that kept me going from the moment I bought it and started reading it I could not put the book down until I was finished. This a highly recommend read it is a very good paranormal romance book and Milly's work is awesome in how she draws you into the characters and there lives.

It just ends randomly in the middle of a pack feud/ possible war. I liked the characters for a bit but i think its a little much that the protagonist jordan is in a constant state of arousal..... the steamy parts were quite steamy but i was let down that the story drifted off. It seems like the author got bored with the main plot and just started writing steamy sex scenes.

I loved the story about Aric and Jordan. They had such a history and Aric didn't realize everything about Jordan until after they got together. These two had a rough time getting together.

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.
