He screwed up.
Second in command of the O’Shea wolf pack, Andrew Reid screwed up and let Charlotte walk away from him. Now that he’s come to his senses, he’s determined to win her back, no matter how much he has to grovel. Because she’s a woman worth fighting for.
She’s not willing to trust him again.
Charlie thought Andrew was different from other males, that what they shared was real—that their connection was the rare mating pull. But a true mate wouldn’t have ghosted on her the way he did. So no matter what he wants, she’s not playing his games. To capture her heart for good, he’ll have to prove he’s worthy of a second chance. Even if that means he has to give up everything, including his pack.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
If you are in the mood for a short, sweet, second chance with some grovel to it romance, Falling For His Mate would suit perfectly. It also very safe with no other women etc. if that’s what you like.
Andrew, second in command of his wolf pack, completely panicked when he met his mate, Charlie, and then screwed up royally by not only standing her up but completely ghosting on her. Now he wants her back and Charlie wants nothing to do with him, and rightfully so.
My main problem with the book is we didn’t get the before. We are plopped down smack in the middle of the story. There are some flashbacks that eventually tell the tale but they just didn’t work for me at all. The way they kept popping up in weird spots felt really off to me. It would have made so much more sense and felt way less cheesy just to go ahead and start the story at the beginning, especially for such a short book.
Because it started in the middle, although I liked both Charlie and Andrew—especially Charlie, I didn’t get a sense of how deeply Andrew had hurt her and what exactly he had thrown away. It also cut down on a sense of the characters developing. I can’t say I completely connected to either of them.
The story itself was okay, once I got it pieced together but the resolution was so easy I got a more short story vibe from it than even a novella feel. In the end, it was just too short, too easy, and too safe for me.
