Pinch of Sass: Dire Wolf Mates Book 3

Can this stoic Dire Wolf admit the sassy feline is his fated mate and stake his claim?

Ariella Golden needs to persuade sexy Dire Wolf Beta, and the amazingly talented chef at Serious Moonlight, Brock Laurent, to use her Pride’s corporation, Eat Well Live Proud, for all the roadhouse’s needs in order to win the coveted quarterly prize at her company.

They did offer the best organic, non-GMO, and responsibly harvested fish and meat. The only problem was the big ol’ doggy happened to be her fated mate.

Brock was perfectly content to cook good food and hang out with his Pack until she walked into his life. Now the curvy, curly-headed goddess was all he could think about. Determined to ignore the pull of his mate, Brock develops a plan to test whether or not the virginal hellcat can handle all of him.

Ariella is stunned when Brock propositions her. With the encouragement of her family, she agrees to a single night in Brock’s arms to close the deal that will put her in the running for EWLP’s quarterly prize. After all, it might be the only way she can get the big dummy to realize she is his mate.

Will the sassy feline prove that she can take anything he dishes out?

This author knows exactly what my favorite kind of book is, short, sweet and sassy. I absolutely love these characters and the more I see of them the more I want to read. The author did a fantastic job of thrusting these two lonely souls together and making them work for their HEA. The story is full of deep emotions offset by moments of hilarity that bring the story together perfectly. I can’t decide which character I want to find their mate next, but no matter who it is I just know it’s sure to be an amazing adventure.

The antics that Ariella’s mother dose made the book very interesting especially when she gets her drunk. & the basket of “goodies” that Ari’s sisters gave to her was good too. Especially after Brock sees the basket & makes a comment about what he will give them for Christmas.

Brock has known that Ariella was his mate ever since met her on Sheila’s book but, because of something that happened in his past he has been afraid to take the next step.

But, you’ll have to read the book to find out what happened in his past & how he overcomes it to work on his future with Ariella.

Ariella is determined to win the company quarterly prize. All she has to do is convince Brock to contract with her company for their supplies. Brock was perfectly happy until he realized Ariella is his mate but he's not going down that easily. The battle of the sexes also includes the dire wolf pack and feline pride. Tons of fun as these two jockey for position and they manage to find an HEA. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC).

Brock is the Beta of his Dire Wolf pack and the chef at Serious Moonlight. He knows Ariella is his fated mate but after being rejected as a youth because of his size he's afraid to commit as he couldn't handle his mate rejecting him as well. Ariella is a lion shifter and she knows he's her mate as well and isn't dealing with his avoiding her well. Will they get past his past and find love or will it tear them apart? I love this series.

Book 3 of 3. Wolf shifter Brock Laurent has realised that Lioness Ariella Golden is his destined mate from the first time they met. As chef of the road house now run by the small group of wolf shifters, only the best ingredients will do for their clientele.

Ariella is eager for the products produced by the lion pride be used by this customer. Not only would it help her to claim the award for best sales, but it could only make the superb good served better for highly selective consumers. Add her exuberant family, his past bad experience before all becomes clear.

I am really enjoying reading about these dire wolves. The author really spent a lot of time building these characters and adding details to their relationship that by the time I reached the end I felt invested in their future. I love the story and how these two and family pulled together to save the day. I especially enjoyed the epilogue and the way the author had Leo just jump whole heartedly into the Dire Wolf way of mating with no hesitation. I can guess which wolf will find fate’s gift of a mate next, but no matter who it is, I can’t wait to read what happens.

Sometimes I feel like I title these stories the same every time. But how else to you label such a great story. Many things are happening in this story, many lives are intertwining. There are lots of emotions rolling thru you as you read this. You will find yourself drawn into the book and not want to leave.

There is a little mystery that happens in the book, why is it some people just think that shifters can be with their own kind and they do very cruel things to make it happen.

This book will make you laugh and cry and in the end you want to just smack the shifters and wake them up to remind them that fated mates happen and you cannot change that, even if you want too.

Love the tattoo..

Sheila is a Dire Wolf & she met her fated mated on the night that the bar was bombed. But, she’s been trying to avoid not only her mate but, the thought of a mate. She been telling herself & her wolf that they are meant to be free. The wolf part of her just doesn’t agree.

Leo (the Lion, yep that’s his 1st name) is a Detective in Blue Creek & when he showed up at the bar to investigate the bombing he met his fated mate, Sheila. & ever since her met her he’s been trying to get her to admit that they’re mates.

Leo finally found a way to get Sheila to spend time with him in the form of a challenge. As he needs someone to pretend to be his mate & go to the Pride’s House with him so that he can find out what is really going on with his Dad.

Now I’m not going to tell you how it works out, as you’ll have to read the book to find the answer

Fire Maidens #7: Venice by Anna Lowe

Ten years ago, lion shifter Tony Pelligrini was forced to flee Venice after being framed for a murder he didn’t commit. But now, a mysterious force is drawing him back. Is it the feeling of a ticking time bomb only he can defuse? Or is it the call of destiny, promising true love?

His Twisted Tail by Melanie James

This was good! I can’t say I remember reading anything else by this author, but I will definitely change that! This was a worthy entry into the Paranormal Dating Agency world.

Her Purrfect Match by Milly Taiden

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.

Shake That Sass by C. D. Gorri

He’s an Alpha looking for a home. She’s an outsider with no one to call her own. Can they find what they’re searching for in each other?

Shake That Sass: Dire Wolf Mates Book 1

He’s an Alpha looking for a home. She’s an outsider with no one to call her own. Can they find what they’re searching for in each other?

Derrick Rand is an Alpha Dire Wolf, a rare and powerful species of Shifter. Tired of the nomadic life, he’s looking for a place to call home. He receives an email from a female Shifter inviting him to a small town called Blue Creek. Seemingly ideal, he and his crew fill their tanks and mount their bikes for the long ride to meet Barbara Wolfe.

Lucy Corwyn is a Bobcat Shifter passing through the Wolf infested town of Blue Creek. After her junker breaks down, she is stranded there without a cent to her name. Not-so-big Cats rarely mixed with other species, especially not ones that considered her a snack!

Without the money to pay for the repairs needed, Lucy has to find a job. The only one available seems to be at the new biker bar in town, Serious Moonlight. Lucy knows she needs to get the hell out of town before some dumb Wolf tries to make her into a chew toy, so she seeks out the owner about a position.

Imagine her surprise when the sexy as hell Alpha turns out to be her mate!

Lucy isn’t about to make things easy on the big guy. No way.

If that big bad Wolf wants to catch this little she-Cat, he better shake that sass.

I love this author’s induction into the Sassy Ever After world. Not only does she bring us a lonely kitty full of sass, but she brings us 7 dire wolves ready to settle down and find their mates. (Hopefully that means 6 more stories) I truly enjoy the way this author slowly builds the story while introducing us to the characters, it makes them seem so real and invests us in their future. Especially with Lucy, that is one sassy kitty who is going to keep Derrick on his toes for many years to come. I think you will enjoy this book as much as I did, and now the wait begins for the next book. I hope it won’t be too long.

From page 1 until the end; I just couldn’t stop reading as this book just hooked me in.

Lucy’s car broke down & she needed a job to get it fixed & she found not just a job but a mate as well.

Derrick & his pack finally found a place to put roots down & he also found a sassy mate to go with it.

But, she’s not sure she wants a mate after seeing what her mother went thru. So, she’s putting Derrick to the test of not only his will but, of his love.

Have to admit Lucy is now a favorite character of mine. She just knows what she wants and she goes out and gets it. She has no problem putting Derrick in his place to do it either. These two are just perfect for each other. Head strong and stubborn.

You find yourself getting lost in the pages. So many times you find yourself laughing at something that Lucy will say. But don't fret this book will give you lots of steam and hunky actions, just wait.

Can't wait to read more books about this Dire Wolf pack from Blue Creek.
