ARC Review! Wolf's Mate 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.

It is no secret that I am a huge paranormal romance fan and that I love reading them no matter if it is vampires, shifters, demons or well whatever an author can dream up.  When I started Wolf’s Mate I was hoping that this would be yet another book I would love and want to read again and again. 

Unfortunately, the strong start it had quickly went downhill.  I don’t know if it suffered from first book in a new series syndrome, meaning a lot of buildup, things being dragged out and so much going on I started to lose interest.  The suspense and action was good and the storyline overall was interesting but it was not holding my interest like I had hoped.

I was annoyed more than once with Abby, I just never fully connected with her character.  Pretty quickly into the book I knew I would have issues with her and sadly I did.  Declan was hot, sexy, protective, all the things I usually love in a shifter male but even he at times rubbed me the wrong way and made me want to scream.

Now with all that being said, I do want to read the next book, there have been plenty of times that I didn’t love the first book in a series to only fall in love with the rest.  I want to give it more of a chance before I completely close the door on this series.  Read Wolf’s Mate for yourself and maybe you will love it more than I did.
