For 14 years, alpha wolf Jason has watched his partially marked mate Cadence live her life without him. Circumstances force his hand and he must find a way to get her to uncover her buried memories of their past before someone else steps up to take her from him.
For as long as she can remember, hybrid wolf Cadence has loved Jason with every fiber of her being, but he's consistently shoved her away until the love that's there is bound tightly in anger and shame. No one can take his place in her heart, but that doesn't mean that there aren't wolves willing to try.
Will Cadence be able to get through Jason's icy demeanor to the heart of the boy she's always loved? Can Jason undo the past so they will have a future together? This book contains red-hot werewolf loving, plenty of neck biting, and misuse of a kitchen counter. The Wolf's Mate is a book for mature audiences only and contains sexually explicit content.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Good book, great story...kept my interest the entire time...but I felt like the story could have been summed up after Jason and Cadence finally came together... but there was like 8 more chapters after that...Whew!
Cadence was a great non-shifting alpha wolf...but Man! She was totally clueless about everything around her... It got old, pretty quick...so I started to ignore her antics... and Jason...geez! If you already claimed you mate...but she don't remember...how bout you just make her! Soo... IDK...did I actually like this or not... I did...but these characters where full of.... eye rolling qualities!
Narration was good...
I would wait for a sale for this... not even a credit b/c you will be rolling your eyes more than a few times...
This is my first audiobook & I love it...
Jason is sooo awesome. I love his alpha nature & the way he takes care of his mate.
I love RE Butler & her books. I own all 3 paperback & all of the other books on my Nook. I also now have this new audio book & can't wait for more.... hugs sisterfriend.... jmb
This book is amazing, sweet and funny. I have read this book more than 5 times since I got it. I love it and am never tired of it.
I love how Cadence can stand up for herself instead of depending on others. That Jason has almost lost Cadence and has to try to win Cadence.
I liked other Jason and Cadence
I was excited in the end that Jason and Cadence are together at the end.
Jason knew Cadence was his mate when he was 15 and so he mate-claimed (bit) her but the trouble was she was just 9 so his then Alpha Father forbid him, and all the Pack, to tell her the significance, or ever remind her, of the event. He also Decreed that, when they're grown-up, she must first remember the bite and then seek him out. Hybrid feisty Cadence has always loved gorgeous Jason but she never understood why he turned away from their friendship and just snapped at her since she was 9 and now, years later, she's had enough.
So starts a ping pong of insults, jealousy as she dates another, denial, heartache, secrets, a hidden dangerous obsessed Wolf, kidnapping, murder, Pack justice, sex and romance. The trouble is it sounded a bit YA (if you tamed down the sex) and most of the interplay between the H/H just seemed implausible for adults. Unfortunately the narrator's voice came across as very young and this may have spoilt the plot for me.
Worth a credit? Jason was an Alpha male but, for a lot of the listen, came across as a frustrated, scared to make a move and daren't do it type and I like my Alpha's to be the 'knock the door down, carry the heroine off and ask questions later' type. Coupled with this was the 'teen vibe' either caused by the narrator or plot or both which made this not the normal type of shifter romance that I was expecting so it's got to be a NO to the credit but, if it's on sale, then maybe.
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
I’m all about a wolf shifter romance book that includes a hot alpha male and a sassy alpha female. Only this book lacked the alpha male part. The story is about Jason and Cadence. Jason had claimed Cadence when she was just nine and he was fourteen. Due to the fact that Cadence father was human and didn’t particular like wolves, Jason’s father had to make an alpha creed (order) that Cadence forget about the claiming, in order to save his son from having charges filed against him. So Cadence forgot about the claiming and Jason wasn’t allowed to remind her because of another alpha creed his father had given. So 14 years go by and Jason hasn’t in all that time tried to claim her or show her how much he has cared about her even after his father stepped down and Jason become alpha of the pack. Cadence has never stopped loving him but shows it by being mean to him and flirting with his rival in another pack. It isn’t until Cadence has graduated from college that Jason decides now is the time to claim her, only because the other pack of the town gave him an ultimatum, claim her or step aside.
I don’t know whether it is the writing or the reader but this story was more suited for a high school romance than an adult romance, minus the smex scenes and their rather tame. I agree with one review, several times while listening to this book, I caught myself rolling my eyes and wondering if I was reading a YA book instead. Yes Cadence is sassy and feisty (which I like in a heroine) but she acts as if she is still a senior in high school, with a crush on the quarterback of the football team. Jason is too passive. He doesn’t act like an alpha wolf. If he wanted to claim Cadence so badly and had been in love with her for that long, do something about it. Don’t send your younger brother as your errand boy, UGH! I have never listened to Dara and probably won’t if it’s an adult romance. She is suited best for YA in my opinion. Her voice has a more young adult tone to it.
So the big question is: is this book worth a credit, not in my opinion. If you can catch it on sale, maybe (and that’s a low maybe).
I really liked this story, but I would probably just read the book next time. I wasn't crazy about this narrator. This book like all of R.E. Butler's books was great!
