I love how these stories are all stand alone, but yet they easily lead from one to another. The couples are engaging and delightful. This is rapidly becoming one of my “Go To” series.
She sighed and stared at Gerri. “My mother says I’m a fool. That love doesn’t exist. That I should give up on the idea.”
“Don’t you dare! Love exists. You just need the right man.”
“I want love,” she murmured softly. “I want to be wanted for once. Not just for the troubles I can fix for a man. I want to be wanted for who I am and what I can give back. I want to be loved.”
Gerri nodded. “And we will get you love.”Taiden, Milly. Her Purrfect Match (Paranormal Dating Agency, Book 3) . Latin Goddess Press. Kindle Edition.
Alyssa Moran is tired of being the old cat lady with no man. She has very specific needs and goes to visit Mrs. Wilder at the Paranormal Dating Agency. Shockingly enough, she is promised a man who likes cats, wants kids, likes curves and will be wild in bed.
Grayson Green needs a mate. Fast. But he refuses to be pushed into anything. That is, until a curvy funny woman shows up in his territory saying she’s there for him. Who is he to argue when someone as delectable as Alyssa decides she wants to give herself to him?
Of course, not all is at it seems and some people want Alyssa gone and Gray dead. If Gray mates, the future of his pride will be sealed and no one can argue his place as leader. Unless it can be stopped before they ever get a chance to make some cubs. He will have to work hard at convincing a human she’s the only one for him or lose his pride and his mate.
Malinda 4.0 out of 5 stars Really good addition to the series 😀 Reviewed in the United States on April 24, 2015 Verified Purchase 4-4.5 stars This was a really good story. I liked Alyssa very much and Gray was a pretty cool as well. Their story was very good and went quickly but I really liked it. Alyssa is a nice lady who hasn't had good luck with men. She grew up in a house where her father loved her mother a lot but her mother didn't love him back and treated him like crap. Alyssa hoped to find a man who loved her like her father loved her mother (but she'd treat her man much nicer than her mother treated her father). Unfortunately, she keeps finding losers that take advantage of her kind nature, using her and trying to tell her she can't do any better because she's a BBW. Gray is a Tiger shifter and the leader of his Tiger pride. Growing up there wasn't a lot of room for PDAs and such so Gray grew up believing that love didn't have a place in his life. He's been getting pressure from his pride to take a mate and have cubs but Gray has been holding back because of pure obstinance, not wanting to because people require it of him. Since Gray wasn't looking for his mate, one of his lieutenants decided to sign him up for the matchmaking service. Alyssa goes out to meet Gray, thinking he's expecting her and that she'll be there for a couple days to get to know Gray. She ends up getting a flat tire as she's getting close to where she needs to go and meets up with a Tiger and a man. She soon gets help and directed to the home of the local pride's leader and is surprised to find out that the pride leader is her "date". Gray is very attracted to Alyssa and sees her as a definite candidate for a mate but he's not real thrilled at his buddy's interference in signing him up for the service without his knowledge. He decides he likes Alyssa enough to go with the situation and see where it heads. Alyssa is very attracted to Gray and starts having dirty thoughts about him right away. They soon end up exploring their connection (sexually) as well as getting to know each other. Alyssa is happy with Gray because he obviously is different from the other men she's dated and treats her much better. Gray expresses his need for a mate and children and Alyssa likes him enough (and wants a serious relationship and children enough) that she agrees that they can start working on kids, leaving the rest of the relationship to grow as they get to know each other. Things go pretty well between them but there are some issues within the pride that interfere, mainly 2 other tigers that want a chance at Gray's position as leader. There is a bit of danger and drama that have to be dealt with but everything turns out well and Gray and Alyssa end the story starting their HEA together. This was a really enjoyable story. I really liked Alyssa. She was very straight forward, sweet and had a good sense of humor. Gray was a good hero and his only real detraction was his inability to grasp the concept of him and love co-existing (and that didn't last too long). Overall, this was a very good, low angst PNR and I'd recommend it. 😀
Annettepj 5.0 out of 5 stars PDA just gets better and better with Geraldine Wilder in charge of matches with sassy females and sexy shifter males Reviewed in the United States on November 24, 2014 Verified Purchase I am a Sassy Mates series fan and faced with a cold winter night and in need of some real entertainment I purchased this series from Milly Taiden in hopes that she would not let me down. In Sassy Mates I was intrigued into purchasing the series with the lure of sexy wolf shifter brothers and their mature accomplished school teachers. I must admit in the past the draw of a menage with wolf shifters(Twice the Growl) , a bear seeking a long lost high school crush(Geek Bearing Gifts) and a tiger shifter faced with giving up his rule of the pride if he can't bring some cubs into the pride soon did not attract me. I am here now to repent of my previous lack of interest and will give Milly Taiden a wide berth in all future paranormal romance novels she may write. This novel is the best of the series so far, even though it seemed shorter than the previous two in the series. In this novel, Tallia's co-worker Alyssa Moran is in her mid-late 30's and is seeking the partner, children, house with the fence and perfect little forever love scenerio and having been unable to find it on her own, with a slew of loser schmucks in her past, she turns to Geraldine Wilder and the Paranomal Dating Agency to see if she can find "her one" outside of the human race. Grayson Green is facing a future alone as the leader of his pride and imminent challenges to his leadership if he is unable to produce cubs soon. His soldier and trusted guard Stripes makes contact on his behalf with the PDA and Gerry has the match for Talia as soon as they finish tea at their initial meeting. Gerry takes the dowdy Alyssa shopping for clothes that do not consist of baggy sweats and sends her off to meet her weekend date at his place in the mountains, near Tally's new home with her 2 wolves. Lost with a malfunctioning GPS and a flat tire she is surprised and frightened when a man and his tiger companion all but attack her on the muddy ground. Tynder is surprised by his tiger companion's response to Alyssa and takes her to the home of one Mr. Green of Green Edge the pride's leader and chief and her blind date. When Stripes rushes in to attempt to explain the situation that he set up to Gray with the PDA, while Gray is roughly interrogating Alyssa while Tynder stands off to the side, Alyssa is full of sass and wants to know why no one will help her get on the road to meet up with her date for the evening. Other reviewers have mentioned the quotable lines in this first meeting so I will not repeat them, but they won me over to the writing of Milly Taiden once again. Lyssa mentions to Tynder while Stripes is having a whispering session with Gray, "Do you think we should go? The big sexy one is pretty pissed for some reason." Tynder has a sense of humor the whole time after having met Alyssa roadside a few moments earlier and replies after laughing, "I don't think we should move right now." Gray is a recluse and an angry anti social one to boot, so when he tells Stripes and Tynder to leave him with Alyssa and Stripes begins to object he is cut off by Gray hissing, "I don't need help talking." Stripes retorts, "Yes, you do. You hate people." It just gets better from here and the retorts of Lyss are just the tool to break down the walls around Gray's long locked up heart.
Joyce J. Ruskuski 5.0 out of 5 stars A UNIQUE MEETING AND A TACITURN TIGER GIVE ALYSSA CAUSE TO WONDER Reviewed in the United States on May 26, 2015 Verified Purchase Another winner for the Paranormal Dating Agency Genius Mrs. Wilder, when she pairs Alyssa and Gray for a match made in the Tigers Lair. Gray is a rather taciturn and lone tiger kind of guy. Who needs a mate and cubs but doesn't want one. That is until one of his guards fills out the forms that allows Mrs. Wilder to fine his purrfect match, one Ms. Alyssa. Their introduction is a rather unique experience at least for Alyssa. When her car breaks down and she is literally attacked by one very aroused and very large tiger shifter who suddenly finds he might just really like this idea. The sparks fly and the romance is off to a rather rocky start. I think you will love this one, as the pack members conspire to overthrow Gray for his place as leader and it takes both he and Alyssa to foil this coupe. I hope you give this one a read and enjoy it as much as I have
Eisha 4.0 out of 5 stars Her Purrfect Match review Reviewed in the United States on February 3, 2015 Verified Purchase Alyssa and Graysons story. Man oh man what a story. You have a beautiful curvy woman that is the poster child for crazy cat lady except she is not she just loves cats all types. When she is set up she is under the assumption that Grayson is looking for love nevermind that he is super sexy and has a body angels and demons envy. She is looking for someone to love her just as she is. Grayson knows who she is and whats even better his feline wants her very much. When her car breaks down traveling to meet Grayson she is welcomed by a huge tiger that would rather eat her in a different way than harm her. He keeps sticking to he only wants cubs but cannot help but to fall in love with alyssa. Typical man to deny what is in front of you and darn near lose it all because of pride. I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars because I wanted a little bit more. Some people seem to forget that the rules that would normally govern humans dont apply when shifters come into play. Maybe they are producing enough phermones to get someone high as a kite so what. You have to think of the fantasy part of it because if shifters were real I would gladly roll over to get my tummy scratched ;).
