How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best friend involved staking out the local wolf pack's scenting ceremony and recording the graphic details. No one would know that four human women had sneaked proof of their rituals - or that was the plan until Aric Wolfe showed up.

Aric knew his baby sister was up to something, and he expected her best friend, Jordan, to be in on the chaos. Jordan's scent called to both the man and the animal, and he was done fighting the call of the beast. It was time to mark his mate.

When a good intention creates a problem for the Wolfe family, Jordan finds herself being stalked by a woman intent on claiming Aric as her own. Battle lines will be drawn, and two alpha hearts seeking control will either find the balance or risk losing their love forever. (Contains mature themes.)

Critic Reviews

"This book had crotch sniffing, tree climbing, mystery and great romance. There is some set up for future installments with secondary characters." ( I Heart Books)

Great listen and read

This was a great story. I like Milly Taiden. Yes they are short so it's all packed in. But does not take away anything, 5stars all around if audible would get the rest of the stories on audible. Performance and story are great overall will get 5 when all audible has all of Milly Taiden stores in Audible form. Thank you.

Two paws up!

This was so much fun.

I was lucky enough to meet Milly Taiden at Romancing the Capital, and I got to hear her speak a bit on writing multicultural romance. She had wonderful things to say, was funny as heck, and so I nabbed this audiobook and went in ready to be entertained. She didn't disappoint.

First off - with an audiobook, there's always the possibility that a narrator doesn't perform quite up to snuff. This wasn't the case at all, and the reader did a solid job with character voices and had a strong range that suited the various emotional pivot points of the story. Action had tension, romance had heart, and the sex was spicy. It was well performed.

From a narrative point of view, this book has the double-duty of introducing a series (and quite a bit of world-building for the paranormal shifter mythology that's Taiden is constructing) and having its own story and the balance is handled really well. I liked Jordan - the feisty, curvy, Latina heroine - and her group of friends are obviously going to be the heroines of the rest of the stories. The friends were very much background characters, which is fine from a set-up point of view, and her front-and-centre BFF (and shifter friend) had more of a direct role and served as a great way to introduce the shifter dynamics to Jordan (and by proxy, the reader).

Aric was freaking hot. Scorchingly possessive and animal-like; this is a werewolf well-matched to Jordan's strong personality. I liked their give-and-take, and I liked that they both met somewhere in the middle without either feeling like they gave up too much for the other. It was very deftly handled. Also, the sex they had would melt metal. Yowza.

Their struggles to get together had a nice mix of inside-vs-outside issues, and as I said, this book pulled double-duty to set up a lot of the world-building, and much of that included the outside conflicts that intruded on Aric and Jordan. I'm definitely intrigued to watch the other friends get their time in the spotlight, and I think any fan of paranormal romance will enjoy 'Scent of a Mate' for sure. Even better that the heroine is a curvy lady with strength of personality.

Since this was a paranormal book and it included the rough-and-tough wolves, there is definitely some murder and mayhem involved, too. Keep that in mind if you prefer your romance to be more about the sexy than the bloody. It doesn't distract from the romance angles of the story, but I know some readers really don't enjoy any squick-factor. It never felt over-the-top or out of place to me, and I'm not a big fan of violence, so I don't think you should worry much, either.

All in all? Two paws up!

good story!

I did like the story! The sex was pretty good! The only thing I would say, is that I couldn't really handle the narrator's voice. She did excellent work with the tone with what was happening in the story, but the sound of the woman's voice was very nasally and I just couldn't handle it. Normally with these kinds of stories that have sex in them you want to find both the male and the female attractive in some way. You want the male voice to be deep and manly and you want the female's voice to be more feminine. Unfortunately this voice just turned me off of her otherwise I would be getting the very next book.

BBW get her sexy shifter mate.

Milly Taiden has done it again with this well written book. This book is laced with action, sarcastic wit, strong female characters, sexy shifters and plenty of steamy sex. It grabs you from the chapter one and takes you on an explosive magic ride until the very end leaving you wanting more. A true just read or listen to book.
