Marked and Mated (Wayward Mates Book 2)

Love the book, but just don’t have the time to read it? Did you get started on it at home, but need to leave the house for a while? Wish that you could take it with you as you go through your daily routine? Grab the Audible version of this book! You can start reading it and continue to listen to it easily. I’ve done this many times!

She ran from her mate. Now she must be punished.

Darby Callan doesn’t want a mate, but it isn’t up to her. Her old pack has been disbanded, and when the powerful, handsome alpha of a well-established pack makes it clear that she belongs to him, her instincts reveal the truth of his words despite her furious protests and attempts to escape.

Jean-Michel Gautier knows that his new mate’s past makes her wary of him, but an alpha cannot tolerate disobedience, and when Darby defies him he strips her bare and spanks her until she is sore and sobbing. Her beautiful body’s response to his dominance is obvious, and his stern correction leaves her helplessly aroused, but before he claims her he plans to make her beg.

Naked and quivering with desperate, shameful need, Darby cannot help pleading with Jean-Michel for the climax she has been denied, and soon she is crying out with pleasure more intense than she would have ever thought possible as he makes her his. But when the vicious brute who once hurt her comes looking for Darby again, can she trust her new alpha to protect his mate?

There were so many times that I just wanted to laugh at Darby. I totally understand the need to make sure your mate is strong enough to stand up to and for you. But I still could see the humor.

This 2nd book in the Wayward Mates series was a pretty good read. Except for the first 66% that was an almost word for word repeat of much of book 1. I only took off one point for this because I really like the characters and the rest of th book kind of makes up for it. I just hope book 3 doesn't do the same thing.
Save yourself some time and trouble by just paging through and checking the start of a paragraph here and there to find something new. Any material that's new involves Darby or Skylar.
That being said, the rest of the book is pretty darn good and moves at a good pace.
I still have a hard time dealing with the men and their attitudes in this story, but its not as pronounced which makes the story much more enjoyable.
As with the first book the sex is pretty tame so it shouldn't offend many readers. There is some, but relatively little cursing, so again, not offensive.
All in all it's a good read and I'm curious enough about the third book to take a chance and read Roz's story. Even if there is another repeat, if the read is as good as this one, it will be worth it.

I like that each book follows all the characters from different points of view. keeps me connected and my interest in the next book strong. Love all the strong and sexy alphas who are also very loving and not afraid to show that side

It is a continuous story but not a cliff hanger. The books take different women and men to be leads in each story. Actually, very romantic stories. Strong alpha males and strong female characters. I have enjoyed reading each and every one
