Publisher's Summary

When one night of passion becomes something neither of them could have ever predicted...

Ivy Greene is a strong, confident single mother who, honestly, doesn’t need any help. She’s got this. All except for one thing. Her five-year-old son Lincoln has a terrible secret that she’s determined to keep until the day she dies. She’d do anything for her son. Including traveling to Spokane to search for more information about people like her son. 

While she’s there, she crosses paths with someone who was supposed to be a one-night stand. Little does she know that he’s playing for keeps.

Maxim Malashovik is the oldest of four boys. He’s fun-loving, kind, thoughtful, and, oh yeah, a bear shifter. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do for the people he loves. And suddenly, inexplicably, he finds he has to add a person to that list, after just one night with her.

Why couldn’t he have fallen for somebody who wanted him back? Or even left her number after their one-night stand.

This is the third book in The Secret Shifters of Spokane series, but can also be listened to as a stand-alone. No cliff-hangers.

Please note: The story contains strong sexual themes/language and is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

Maxim's woman is hotter than any fire!

With half the brothers mated, Maxim didn't expect to be next. However, a one night stand is back with a secret. When Maxim helps her son he is close to winning her heart. The second time he does it she is willing to try for more. But after they are kidnapped by Navuka, Maxim calls in the whole family to try to save them. I love Maxim's parents! They are so loving and patient. I LOVE this series and am on pins and needles waiting for Antone's story. Don't miss these fierce and loving men and their mates.

Another enjoyable paranormal romance

I enjoyed the story of Maxim and Ivy. He was able to win her over regardless of her determination to not get attached. Through Lincoln(Ivys Son), maxim was able to slide into Ivys heart. I can’t wait to hear the next story.

Maxim and Ivy

This is the third book in a series I previously read but which I am enjoying listening to. Although all the stories are standalone I would recommend listening to them in order.

The last thing Ivy Greene wants is a long-term relationship. She's been hurt before and has one goal in life to protect herself and her son from further pain after being betrayed by her son's father. So when she meets Maxim at a bar she doesn't want anything but a few hours of his company. Maxim, however, recognizes that Ivy is his Mate, the only one for him. But Ivy doesn't make it easy for him as she slips away whilst he's sleeping.

For six months, Max has thought about Ivy and how he might find her again but then fate came to his aid, he's a firefighter and he and his crew responded to a traffic accident where they rescued Ivy and Linc her 5-year-old. But again she slipped away, but this time she and Linc came back to thank Max for saving their lives.

Ivy has a secret one she doesn't want to share but when Maxim helps Linc he comes closer to winning her heart. When he helps a second time, she decides to give them a chance and try for more. But when they are kidnapped by Navuka, Maxim enlists the aid of his whole family to try to save them but will he be in time?

The narration of this book by Craig A. Hart is well done and certainly added to my enjoyment of this story.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

The Perfect Hero!

Maxim's Mate is an excellent addition to the Secret Shifters of Spokane series. Selena Scott has created an appealing paranormal world with charming characters. Maxim and Ivy are fabulous together, and their chemistry is off the charts.

Outstanding narration by Craig A. Hart. He does a splendid job portraying the characters' personalities and emotions, bringing them to life. This was a highly entertaining listen and, I strongly recommend it. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Loved

This the third I’ve read in this series and they just seem to get better. I also prefer Craig’s narration to most I have so far heard.
I look forward to the next in the series.
