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.
IN A NUTSHELL:
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.
