I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Book Blurb
Member of the Black Hills Pack in Los Lobos, South Dakota, Jace Matthews is sent to check out the new owner of a piece of land adjoining his packs. Once he steps into her small bookstore in Collins, he’s taken by surprise by the small, prim woman behind the counter. At once, he recognizes his mate. While the wolf inside urges him to complete the bond, Jace knows he must take his time with his human mate. But when danger arises, threatening Michelle’s life, Jace is done waiting. It’s time to claim his mate.

After she inherits her aunt’s property, Michelle Sanders moves to Collins, South Dakota, to escape the monotony of her routine life. Unfortunately, the only person she manages to befriend is not only the hottest guy on the planet, but also gay. However, she never expects a favor for her sexy new friend to result in a series of weird events that will change her life forever.

My Thoughts
This is book 5. Usually I feel like I missed something and it distracts from the story. I didn't get that with this one. I do want to read more about the wolves but don't have the frustration of not knowing the whole story. That being said, I could tell that there was more to be said and will continue with the series.

Romance type stories usually have a happy ever after so we know Jace and Michelle get together. What we don't expect are the dangers and stumbles along the way that add up to a nice story. I really liked Michelle. She felt sassy as well as brave to me. Not too sure about Kate but she is Jace's sister and the situation did stink so maybe her behavior is excused somewhat.

What to say about Jace. Well, he's a male shifter and they're always written extra spicy but he's a little clueless when we first meet him and I loved that. He's also protective and ruthless when he needs to be.

The sexual tension was there from the beginning. From Jace's side, Michelle is his mate but also human so he's trying to be careful but I could hear his wolf growling in the background. From Michelle's side, she's found her dream man and "The fact he was gay hadn’t affected her late night fantasies one iota." and then later . . . 
"there was a man in her shower. A naked man. With the sexiest ass she’d ever seen. Said naked man slowly turned, letting the water sluice over his muscular, tanned frame. Unable to glance away, she ate up every second of the display."
Whew!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
