"I can't touch you yet. Once I do, it's over."

As daughter of the ruling Pack family, Layla Warden is under pressure to settle down. Find a nice wolf mate from a nice wolf family and have nice wolf babies. Layla has other plans, but when you're a werewolf, biology trumps plans. And when Layla meets Sid, the sex is so intense, so hot, so consuming, it's more than just a connection. It's a mating bond.

Sid Rosario wasn't expecting to find his mate so soon—some wolves never find theirs. Now that he's found Layla, he's never letting her go. But lust and desire alone aren't enough to secure their bond. If they want this incredible happiness to last, there's one more thing they'll have to do…

By SpiceWhat happens when the sexy bad boy and the corporate queen accidently mate?

Layla Warden had certain goals in life and a ten year very well thought out plan of how her career and life would lay out.  A mate was not in there, well at least not one for at least five years or so. When he appeared he would fit right in, maybe a stockbroker or a lawyer. It certainly didn’t include a sexy, tattooed, pierced bad boy artist named Sid in town for just a few weeks but he would work very well for a nice hot fling. To her horror, that absolutely combustible chemistry that had her panting for him turned out to be a mate bond. So what did our Layla do? She panicked and ran, a move completely out of character for her.

This was short and had some seriously sexy moments to it, but Layla just wasn’t my cup of tea. I didn’t dislike her, but she was too buttoned up. Her trying to deny that wild streak within her so she could climb that corporate ladder just didn’t sit right with me. I did like Sid, what little we got to know of him. He handled his little reluctant mate gently and with care, well, once he caught her.

I appreciated the fact that this book highlighted and explained the all-important tri-mate bond that keeps coming up in the Cascadia wolves series. Not that I needed too much of an explanation for the hot sex including a three way or two. This was a quick, sexy, and enlightening read, just not my favorite of the series.
