In The Alpha’s Mate, by Eve Langlais, villains aren’t supposed to rescue damsels, and pack alphas are known to have complete control of their wolf. But when Fabian saves a certain lady from drowning, everything he knows gets tossed away and only one thing becomes clear: she’s his mate—and someone wants to kill her. Hell no. Protecting her, though, is only part of his problem. He also has to convince her she belongs to him. In her words, “Hell no.”

When she flees, little does she realize this wolf loves to chase. And when he catches the woman he wants? She’ll become the Alpha’s Mate.

In Dangerous Passions, by Kate Douglas, finding a mate shouldn’t be all that difficult for a sexy werewolf on the prowl. Modern women want romance and seduction, and Feral Passions Resort has served that purpose for providing both for the men of the Trinity Alps pack. Only two are still unmated—alpha leader Traker Jakes and his lieutenant Evan Dark—but danger stalks the women they’ve chosen. Danger that threatens everyone in the pack at Feral Passions.
Previously published in the 2-in-1 e-original Claimed by the Mate Volume 3 and in print for the first time!

In Bound to the Wolf, by A.C. Arthur, Marena Panos is an attorney with a dark secret that follows her into the mountains and into the bed of a Phelan Sava, a lycan whose strength and shared penchant for pleasure/pain will eventually own her body and soul.

I don’t even know how long I’ve have this beauty of a book sitting on a shelf in my sister’s room. Honestly, probably since I got to the apartment. All I know, is that I WISH I began it sooner. I feel this way about books more often than not if I’m being completely honest. I’ve been addicted to Grimm (the TV show) of late and it’s sort of been consuming all of the time. These past two days though I’ve been getting into a lull with the show.

I’m starting to feel like they’re scraping from the bottom of the barrel with all this baby stuff. (please disregard if you’ve got no clue what I speak of)

Anyways, this lead me to reading the three books in this anthology in a span of about fifteen hours. And it was great, let me tell you.

Here Is The Official Ranking (favorite to least):

ONE. Alpha’s Mate
TWO. Bound to the Wolf
THREE. Dangerous Passions

Alpha’s Mate is the first and the shortest of these hot af stories. It begins with an apparent badass girl who is suffering a bit of amnesia. The kicker? This babe has a price on her head. When some wolf out of the woods saves her cute butt from drowning, she doses him in some sass and they all live happily ever after. Sort of.

I loved this one because, while short, I was laughing until my sides hurt with every interaction. The character development was also something to be impressed with.

Bound to the Wolf bring the Greek world of Zeus and Furies to the shifters we all know and love, with some delightful twists here and there (an unapologetic plus-sized heroine, for one, and a Fury hell-bent on revenge). Ugh, except for one minor little male-gaze falter that I SO could have done without from the otherwise hoooooot Phelan, I liked this one quite a bit.

Dangerous Passions follows a makeup artist on her pursuit of the dreamboat of a guy she met on vacation. Instead of the chase many books have, this one leads you straight to the kill. This book also follows one woman born in the early 1900s, turned shifter, trying to escape her hell of a past. Danger come for them both. While I the book as a whole, it felt kind of choppy with all the different perspectives. The two different storylines also drew away from each individual story. However, I would LOVE to read the others in this series.

I do have a few general complaints: I can't remember which specific books these are in but 1) don't refer to your brown characters as having coffee/ coffee resembling skin, 2) plEASE don't act like I know what you're talking about or like I've read the previous book in the series. It just annoys me. 

Overall, this is an anthology you’re not going to want to miss. It’s good, y’all. So good.
