Danger shouldn't be this sexy...

Cougar shifter Abby Carter always plays it safe. That's why she's an accountant--no excitement, no danger, and no cocky alpha males. She loves her quiet life, but fate has other plans. When Abby uncovers the shady dealings of an anti-shifter organization, she'll have to trust the too-sexy-for-her-peace-of-mind werewolf Declan Reed... or end up six feet under.

Declan Reed is starting over. After two years with Shifter Operations Command, it's time to put his past behind him. Now Declan is the only thing standing between the gorgeous Abby and an early grave, and if he's going to have any chance of keeping her alive, he'll have to embrace the darkness he's fought to keep at bay. But first he has to convince Abby that there's no safer place in the world than the arms of a big bad werewolf.

WOLF'S MATE had a great cast of characters that I know will be great getting to know more about in future books.

I honestly don't have a lot to say about the two main characters that you can't guess from the blurb. It was clear from the opening chapters that Abby and Declan had a strong attraction to each other. Abby has had a really rough life and it was nice watching her find her place with people that cared about her. Declan was a little brutish, but he was like putty when it came to Abby.

As for the storyline. I didn't feel like enough happened outside of the couples bubble and what happened inside the bubble was really slow going. Don't get me wrong, I liked that Abby and Declan didn't immediately start pawing each other, making out and professing their love, but not much happened either. Half of the book felt more like filler material.

The characters were by far my favorite part of WOLF'S MATE. I loved the way that Declan's Shifter Operations Command team worked together. They all had each others back at every turn and I loved each and every one of them.

I gave it 3/5 stars
