Wolf's Mate: A Paranormal Shifter Romance by Celia Kyle

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.

"Celia Kyle's my go-to for sexy alpha shifters and fast-paced, delicious storylines." -- Jessica Clare. New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

This book has left me with mixed feelings. On one hand, I loved Declan with his dangerous past and overly protective ways. On the other hand, I didn't feel connected to the other characters or the fight they were involved with. So I read this story and enjoyed parts of it but was left with some issues. Thus my 3 1/2 star rating. Declan is part of the Shifter Operations Command but not really by choice. He's a guy that has had a bloody past. We learn some of that and definitely the way it started. And while he is a dangerous guy who believes Abby should have someone a whole lot better, he was brought to this life out of a need to protect the weak and abused. I cannot and will not fault his for that. Nor does Abby. Abby is a cougar shifter. She has a traumatic past as well and has finally made a life for herself. She finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Declan rescues her. And the flight begins. She runs from her rescuer and he gives chase. And we spend the rest of the book trying to figure out who to trust and who is to be believed. I never really liked Abby. She ran hot and cold too much. And some of Declan's team had me irritated. Cole is one. I never really liked him and something I can't talk about has me still angry at him. I'm kinda of possessive of Declan and what's his. Which brings me to Pike. Yeah. Can't say anything about him. Nothing. But I do not like him. At. All. And that whole part of the book does not feel resolved to me. I will say that that part evoked some pretty strong emotions in me. That says something very positive about the book. So the bottom line is that this is an interesting PNR book but parts of it fell flat for me. I still think fans of this genre will enjoy it. But I'm not interested in Cole's book, which is next. With that being said, you might have a different experience than I did. I will admit to being in a reading slump when I read it. I had broken the slump with a different book before I finished this one though. Take my opinion for what's it worth to you.

The only thing wrong with any celia kyle book is that they end too soon and don't get published fast enough. Love her books and this one has been the best of the bunch.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! The cover is beautifully done, and my favorite kind of shifter cover because it has both stunning beasts on the cover! This is the first in a new series! It is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content. This book is about 368 pages long and all of it is an awesome read! I really need to start reading more of Celia’s work because she weaves an outstanding story and I have more than 30 of her books. Abby is a fantastic lead and as Declan describes her she is a survivor. She has gotten through a lot as kid which is why she likes to play things safe. Declan is a sexy and dangerous Alpha. He thinks he is bad, but you find out he really isn’t. He is all about protecting like an Alpha should, but he also doesn’t take orders well which can and does cause some trouble. This book is non-stop action, and this series is a fantastic world that I can’t wait to read more of! I highly recommend to shifter fans who like a variety of shifters with plenty of action and wise cracking Alphas!! I can’t wait to read Cole’s story when it comes out!!

Wolf's Mate is one of the best Paranormal Romances I've read in a long long while. I loved the characters and their personalities, how they interacted with each other and to the situations they found themselves in. The writing is excellent with vivid descriptions and a plot that was enthralling. It killed me to set this book aside to attend to my real life and leave this world behind for even a few minutes. I wanted to keep reading and living this one until the very end. The fantastic twists, loads of suspense and humor to keep it fun. Then there is the Grand Canyon sized sexual tension. Just WOW, it's seriously hot. I look forward to this new series more than I have any other in a very long time and I can NOT wait for the next book in this one. Celia Kyle, though new to me just earned herself a spot up there with my favorite PNR authors with this book, the plot and amazing cast of characters. I very highly recommend it.

Review: WOLF’S MATE (Shifter Rogues, #1) by Celia Kyle Publication Date: August 1, 2017 Genre: Paranormal Romance Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Cori Rated: 4 Stars WOLF’S MATE was so much fun and I’m so excited about this new series! This is the first book in a new paranormal series by Celia Kyle and features a group of special ops shifters that go up against a group of humans that hunt shifters. If you’re familiar with Celia Kyle’s books they’re usually quick, funny and erotic. WOLF’S MATE is a full length novel and has more of a storyline. It’s not as erotic as her quick reads, but the romance is still steamy. The story kicks off with some action and danger and doesn’t let up until the end. I loved this group of shifters! Celia Kyle created a great group of guys and really made me want a book for each of them. Declan is a wolf shifter in this special ops group and comes to the rescue of Abby, a cougar shifter. I loved Declan and I was cheering for Abby. There were some funny antics, emotional moments, a lot of danger and plenty of hot romance. I couldn’t put this one down and can’t wait for the next book. The Tiger shifter is next! Yum! I recommend this book for readers looking for a steamy paranormal romance series with some action and suspense. *Review copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ~*~*~*~

I had a blast reading this, it was so freaking fun! A lighter paranormal romance with really likable characters. It was fast paced, kept me on my toes, and left me excited for the next book. Declan and Abby were so fantastic. They've got the light hearted animosity and chemistry down. I loved the playfulness between Declan and Abby, their fun conversations and flirting. Since they're shifters, there's an added element of their animals liking each other as well while their humans selves fight it that attracion. I smiled so many times because I loved that fight. I loved the shifter aspect too. I really enjoyed the descriptions of their animals and how everything worked, I thought it was a great world that was created. I loved the push and pull between Abby and Declan while they came together. It started out great so I was pulled in right away. It's fast paced with really awesome details, good character development and back stories. Not overly in depth, just the prefect amount to keep things moving along. I loved the alternating POVs a lot, it kept things moving along at a good pace and had me excited for what would happen next. This was definitely a lighter read, it had a bouncy, fun vibe happening but it was also pretty action packed. I loved the drama that was mixed in as well. There's a nice mystery happening as well and I'm thinking that's going to carry out through the series. While there is an HEA for the couple, there are still on going questions facing the team and what's happening in their world. I loved the other shifters on Declan’s team as well. Everyone seemed to have a really distinct personality. I enjoyed their bickering and challenging each other. In short, this was just super entertaining to read and left me with a smile on my face. This was my first time reading this author and I will definitely be reading her again. This was the prefect PNR summer read. Complimentary copy received for honest review.

“You. Are. Mine. You run, I’ll chase you. You hide, I’ll find you. You even think about another man, I’ll kill him.” “Everything that’s happened since I met you has been for you.” Wow! Wow! Wow! Talk about a book that hits the ground running and doesn’t let let up!!! Wolf’s Mate is fast paced, action packed with some seriously steamy moments and a few twists along the way. Told from multiple points of view, Wolf’s Mate follows the story of Declan and Abby. From the moment we meet Declan and Abby, you can just feel the chemistry and tension rolling off them. Their connection is instant and their romance, one of insta-love, but I gotta tell you, this is one of those books where the insta love just works. Abby was a total game changer for Declan. The moment he laid eyes on her, he knew he had to claim her as his. But, things won’t be easy for these two. No, fate is going to make them fight hard; not just for their lives, but for their love as well. With danger around every corner and not knowing who to trust, there certainly is never a dull moment for these two shifters. Wolf’s Mate is my first book by this author and I know it won’t be my last. I easily devoured this book and couldn’t wait to see how it all was going to play out. I enjoyed every moment. From the danger, to the romance. To the sexier than hell alpha shifter and the shifters’ inner dialogue. Wolf’s Mate was a ton of fun and I can not wait to see where this series is going to go next!

Wolf's Mate (Shifter Rogues #1) by Celia Kyle is a fun new start to a sexy new series. Forget your bikers these bad boys make them look tame. These sexy shifters have been given a second chance by doing what they do best for Shifter Operations Command; protecting shifters from all dangers foreign and domestic. I loved that though the sexual attraction for Abby was there from the very beginning that they didn’t consummate until later in the book. I loved that the guys picked on each other but wouldn’t allow anyone else do the same. These sexy bad boy shifters deserve love as much as anyone if not more. I thoroughly enjoyed this fast paced, exciting romp.
