Review: Wolf’s Mate (Shifter Rogues #1) by Celia Kyle

I read the synopsis of Wolf’s Mate and immediately grabbed it. It sounded like so much fun… and it totally was! I enjoyed every second!



Wolfs Mate 

Wolf’s Mate (Shifter Rogues #1) by Celia Kyle 


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.


4 out of 5 stars

I had a blast reading this, it was so freaking fun! A lighter paranormal romance with really likable characters. It was fast paced, kept me on my toes, and left me excited for the next book.

Declan and Abby were so fantastic. They've got the light hearted animosity and chemistry down. I loved the playfulness between Declan and Abby, their fun conversations and flirting. Since they're shifters, there's an added element of their animals liking each other as well while their humans selves fight it that attracion. I smiled so many times because I loved that fight. I loved the shifter aspect too. I really enjoyed the descriptions of their animals and how everything worked, I thought it was a great world that was created. I loved the push and pull between Abby and Declan while they came together.

It started out great so I was pulled in right away. It's fast paced with really awesome details, good character development and back stories. Not overly in depth, just the prefect amount to keep things moving along. I loved the alternating POVs a lot, it kept things moving along at a good pace and had me excited for what would happen next.

This was definitely a lighter read, it had a bouncy, fun vibe happening but it was also pretty action packed. I loved the drama that was mixed in as well. There's a nice mystery happening as well and I'm thinking that's going to carry out through the series. While there is an HEA for the couple, there are still on going questions facing the team and what's happening in their world. I loved the other shifters on Declan’s team as well. Everyone seemed to have a really distinct personality. I enjoyed their bickering and challenging each other.

In short, this was just super entertaining to read and left me with a smile on my face.  This was my first time reading this author and I will definitely be reading  her again. This was the prefect PNR summer read.
