Audible Audiobook, Unabridged
|Free with your Audible trial|
This is insane. This human—beautiful though she may be—can’t be my mate.
I learned the hard way what it's like to lose people you love.
As an alpha, I vowed never to let that happen again.
That means keeping my focus. Never letting my guard down.
And, most of all, staying away from civilians - i.e. humans.
But the feisty chocolatier has me breaking my own rules.
The beautiful female tests my patience... and all my control.
I should stay away. I can't protect the pack if I succumb to my desires.
But what if this is more than desire?
What if Fate matched me with this human, and she's my mate?
If I don't claim her, I'll lose it all in the worst possible way.

Rafe and Adele
Book 3 in the series
Rafe the Alpha of his small pack, has met his match when he finds his very human, and very stubborn mate.
I’ve watched these two dance around each other since the first book.
Rafe is used to being in charge and barking orders, expecting everyone to jump. It’s his job to look after and protect his pack. A pack that now includes human mates. Mates that are very vulnerable, fragile and easily damaged. Add in a nemesis that has them all confused and disoriented. He can’t add yet another person into his fold. Even if the fates have determined she’s his mate.
Adele may be completely human, but in her own way she, herself is the very definition of an Alpha female. Dominant, prideful, stubborn and protective of those she loves. After her former business partner left her in the middle of his mess with a drug cartel, she’s lost her beloved chocolate shop. Needing money to get her shop opened again, she approaches the one person who she knows will give her a job. Rafe.
Working side by side with Rafe is both beautiful and torturous.
These two are not lacking chemistry. They secretly crave each other but refuse to cross that line. Their arguments and sniping at each other is foreplay to them.
These two have enough trouble just being around each other, but add in a new man who believes Adele is his mate, and it just puts everything into overdrive. And sends Rafe over the edge.
I liked the story. I wish there had been more of Adele’s background, we get the basics, but at the end I just felt like I didn’t really know her.
I really liked Rafe. His backstory was horrible and it was easy to see how he became the overprotective man that he was.
Overall this was a good story. A bit shorter than the first two books, so things moved quickly.
There are a few twists and turns, but Rafe finally gets himself together and claims his mate.
The epilogue sets up the next book. When Tabitha the fourth and final of the girl tribe finds her mate. And it’s not who I was expecting. Not sure how I feel about who it will be.
The story is told mostly in dual points of view. There is a third, that pops up a few times.
No cheating, no cliffhanger.
I couldn’t stop giggling with glee at the beginning because Rafe acted like one of those alpha crime bosses I enjoy reading in dark romances. Then there’s his motives for revenge and protecting his pack, and I got super excited to see how his story unfolded.
But toward the end, Rafe and Adele were denying each other for so long, I wondered why they even bother trying. Their reasons for being hot and cold were justified, but how they overcame those reasons were kind of blunt and confusing.
Rafe deciding to be with Adele and trade his revenge for her life was as quick as a light switch. There wasn’t enough time of transition for us to feel him change his mind, so I didn’t feel the weight of his choice. I’m glad Rafe got to be happier and less gruff at the end, but he didn’t seem like a happier version of himself. His name could have been replaced with Channing’s, and it would’ve made more sense. Also, the fact that he got closure anyway for his revenge after choosing Adele over it made his sacrifice less meaningful. As if he got everything he wanted without making hard decisions. It was a little anticlimactic.
I really like Adele, which is one of the reasons I was excited to read this book. She was a strong, self-made woman who submitted to no one but her alpha, and I felt for her when she lost her shop. As important as it is for her to forgive Rafe, I do think she forgave him too quickly—especially considering her similar difficulty with trusting others, I’ve expected her to at least try solving her kidnapping problem at the end on her own at first to show how hurt she was. Then Rafe would come in during her attempt and ask for her forgiveness, and THEN Adele would consider giving him another chance so they can get a better start on their relationship. Now I’m kind of glad Rafe suddenly became mushy at the end because if Adele is this quick to forgive someone who spent most of his time with her breaking her heart, their relationship would have been a lot less romantic and healthy.
Also, consider having a program read back the text to you guys during editing. The “oh-shit handle” was hilarious but a little distracting. And Rafe was outside Adele’s house and then next to the fridge? I got confused there too.
Despite my criticisms, I did enjoy reading this book and will consider rereading it later! I’m excited to read Gabriel’s story too! His personality in this book is a little confusing (first he’s Rafe’s nemesis, then rival, then wingman, then friend?), but he’s intriguing enough to read about on his own book. I’m so glad that novel is coming soon.
Thank you guys for writing and publishing this story! I’m super pumped to read more of yours books.
