SUNNY: ARC BOOK REVIEW "Tempting His Mate" by Savannah Stuart

She ran from him once…

Wild one night stands are not Ella Hayes’s style, but with her confidence at rock bottom after a devastating betrayal and her painful departure from her jaguar pride, who could blame her for falling into bed with a sexy wolf? She never thought she’d see him again. And never in her craziest dreams did she expect to come face-to-face with him on her first day with the Kincaid wolf pack. Sleeping with Asher had been one of the most intense experiences of her life—but now she wonders if they could have more.

He’s not letting her go again…

Tired of life as a lone wolf, shifter Asher has joined his cousin’s pack. The last person he expected to see was the sexy woman who ran out on him in the middle of the most incredible night of his life. The Ella he meets now is nothing like the wild, sensual woman he let his guard down with, but he likes both sides of the complicated female. But now somebody—or something—sinister is targeting Ella, and Asher moves quickly to get her under his roof and under his protection. Keeping the sexy female safe and proving they belong together are two missions he doesn’t plan to fail. Because this time, he’s playing for keeps.

Tempting His Mate is book 3 in the Crescent Moon series by Savannah Stuart (aka. Katie Reus) and is right up my alley.

I like this premise.  Buttoned-up girl meets bad boy shifter.  Yes, it's a familiar story, but this one is done well. I'm a sucker for a straight-laced girls letting go - the more tightly wound, the better: "She preferred to keep her world neat, tidy and ordered." I like Ella.  She is grounded, competent, and even in the midst of being unwound, she knows her mind.  She makes her wants and needs known to Asher: "...if you want me again, you're going to have to work for it." You go, girl! Thank you for not be a puddle of goo around this undoubtedly primal, alpha male.  

There is also a minor mystery. It's actually not much to speak of except as a device to draw Ella and Asher together. The real story is about these two shifters and the heat level is scorching.  

I know we are heading into Fall, but you may want to keep your fans out for this one.  It is definitely a hot read. 

Thank you to the author for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
