The Mating Challenge by Bonnie Vanak

For a long time alpha werewolf and ranch owner Aiden Mitchell has desired the curvy, vivacious Nikita Blakemore, alpha female of the Blakemore pack. He will have her as his mate and no other. To force her hand, Aiden maneuvers her into hosting a Mating Challenge, the ultimate warrior competition for werewolves, where males fight for the right to mate and breed with a female alpha. Fiercely protective of his future mate, Aiden will do anything to make her his own, even fight to the death.

Masquerading as her twin sister, Nia Blakemore knows she is the one Aiden wants in his bed. Nia has dreamed of the handsome cowboy sweeping her into his strong arms and consummating the passion consuming them both, even though he thinks she is Nikita, the true alpha female. Nia must try to keep Aiden from discovering the truth to protect her frailer, gentler twin. But Nia and the real Nikita hide a secret far more deadly than the charade they have pulled off for years, one that can kill Aiden and any healthy male who sets foot upon their land...

182 pages. Vanak can spin a great tale but this wasn't it. The series had such promise in the beginning, vanak was pushing some boundaries and I LIKED it, then she stopped which is unfortunate. Aiden has been such a tough kickass char and I loved him. I was so looking forward to HIS book. This could have been, should have been so much more than It was. Not that this is a bad read, it isn't but I was disappointed Aiden should have been way more badass in this book and the sex scene was bleh, it should have been over the top since we waited so long for it. At least it was well priced so I can't begrudge that. I miss the edginess Vanak had in the earlier books from this series as ORIGINALLY written, not the revamped version.

The Mating challenge is the 5th book in the werewolves of Montana series By Bonnie Vanak. I have to say I was super excited when I found out I was getting the chance to review this book. I have been waiting for it for what seems like forever! The entire series is a great read with not only the sexy shifters I have grown to love, but a whole new world of Magic and fairytales. I was hooked from the first book on and this one was just as great as the others, if not better. From the moment Aiden saw the alpha of the Blakemore pack, Nikita, he knew she was the one for him and vowed to stop at nothing to get her, but the Nikita Blakemore that Aiden knows is not truly who she pretends to be and when he finds out the truth it may already be too late. Will Aiden find out the truth in time or will his fate be sealed by an early death because he found out too late? Disguised as Nikita, Nia the younger twin sister has spent her entire life protecting her sister from the clutches of the Silver Wizard, but that is not the only secret these two hold. A mysterious curse has been put on their land that kills all adult males and unless these two can find the cure Nia’s new mate, Aiden will die. There is so much mystery in this book! I was hooked from the beginning and you will be to. Shifters, mystery, magic, love and devotion, what more can you ask for in one book? I have grown quite fond of Aiden so I was on his side the entire time. I mean who wouldn’t want a strong, sexy, confident shifter, right?? As for Nia, I was weary of her at first since I knew how much Aiden wanted her and I couldn’t have her go breaking his heart now could I? But alas, she is quite lovable and a truly devoted sister, daughter and lover so I think Bonnie did a great job with both of them and this story. I can’t wait to see where the next book takes us… Hopefully Tristan and Nikita!! This is a Danielles Domain Review

Nice story wish there was more about the couple and not so much on the sisters and the curse. A little disappointed but still a nice read.

Aiden has wanted Nikita since he first saw her. Unfortunately she has many, many secrets and she plans on keeping them. Nia/Nikita has vowed not to tell outsiders what is happening on her precious ranch. All men past the age of puberty have died of a mysterious illness and Nia is masquerading as her twin sister to protect her from the Silver Wizard and give her time to come up with a cure to save the boys on the ranch. After Aiden wins "Nikita" through the Mating Challenge he immediately realizes something is very wrong and all is not as it seems. For me, this story dragged on a little too long in spots. The love scenes were, as always, super hot and sexy. I loved the moments where Aiden Nia's banter turned into real friendship. The secondary characters were great and I can't wait to see what Vanak has for us next.
