How can she get him to stop running long enough to realize he's her freakn' mate?
Francine's loved Mitchell, a wolf like herself, since she first set eyes on him back when they were both just kids. However, Mitchell's never seen her as anything more than his sister's best friend. Determined to make him realize he's her mate, she enlists the aide of Alejandro, a gorgeous cat shifter. She never counted on wanting them both.
Alejandro knows Francine is special from the first moment he meets the fiery plump wolf, which is why he suggests she use him to make Mitchell jealous. A great plan, especially if it means he gets to kiss her luscious lips. One taste, though, and he's addicted, but how does he make her see past the man she loves to realize she's also meant to be his mate?
For a long time now, Mitchell's been avoiding Francine, his bratty sister's friend. However, the little girl he remembers is all grown up, and when he sees her in the arms of another, a need to claim her overrides all his common sense. But, he's waited too long and fate has decided that he's going to have to share. Can he bend enough to accept Francine with her other man, or will his freakn' jealousy send him running?
See what happens when a pigheaded man is subjected to a dose of jealousy--and a kick in the ass.
Francine has known that Mitchell was supposed to be her mate from childhood. But Mitchell always avoided Francine and told her that he was not her mate.

What the heck does that mean. Alejandro wants Francine but understands she is in love with Mitchell. Hoping to get Francine to see that she is also meant to be with him, Alejandro instills a plan to snag the wolf into admitting his mating feelings for Francine.

Mitchell cannot deny the pull to Francine or the desire to make Francine happy. Deciding to give into his fears Mitchell tries to let go of his traditional thoughts on sex and relationship in order to open himself up for something a little more non-conventional.
I liked this story. In the first book Naomi had things a bit easy with the fact that Ethan and Javier where already acquainted and best friends. To me this one is a little more realistic (if you take out the shapeshifter part, LOL). If we were to have a mating gene that told us who we were destined to be with and it did not always mean a couple = 2 people, then it is realistic to say that those others entering a more than 2 person relationship probably would not know each other. And furthermore, might meet the destined person at different periods of the original relationship. Which is interesting because Book #3 deals with just such a dilemma. What happens when the shapeshifter you are destined to mate with is ALREADY MATED. That should be a good read.
