This installment was such fun! I spent half the time laughing my head off. My favorite scene was George's first encounter with the vampires - priceless. I really liked the fact that the focus was on how George and Tank wanted to define their relationship.

The touch of reason why George is so scared of coming out was enough of a rationale for me, the rest was all about how he wanted to move forward. The verbal sparring between the two mates was just perfect, and seeing Tank so helpless as he was c

This was definitely my favorite of all of the Brac Pack books. George broke the mold of the itty bitty, teeny weeny, fragile, giggly, weepy, teenage mates in the previous books. He is older, bigger and more mature than the others and he gives big ole Tank a run for his money. I was also thrilled to death to see a mate get to top for a great change.

"I think I’m having a heart attack. Check my cock!"

What succinct humor! What literary finesse! Not! I guess it's not just music and movies and TV series that are dying art forms. It's bad enough to see ordinary people (if indeed they are) rating these books up. But an "author" as well? Man, my desire to read any Serena Yates book just went down the toilet. In addition to all the flaws from the other books, she just added a $h*tload more in this installment.

PS - Lynn Hagen, stop
4th Reading 1-3-16
This time around my previous comments didn't bother me as much. It was Cecil and his crew that did. Annoying. I also wished that George would have laid one on Tank in front of Kitty ;)

3rd reading 1-2-15
Wow, did the whole "I ain't no girl" thing bother me. Would have also liked to have been in on the conversation with Christian.

2nd read June 2014
Still felt the same way, but George kinda grew on me a bit.

First read November 5th, 2013
To be honest, I am not a George fan. I thought

I have to say that Lynn Hagen is one my favorite authors of all time!! When I first bought my Nook, I saw her books advertised, but always put off reading them, then I purchased Maverick's Mate and I've been hooked ever since!! I have now read every single book Lynn has written and eagerly await and devour any thing that she writes!! I have even repurchased ALL of her books when I moved from the Nook to the Kindle!! Thank you Lynn for providing me with so many hours of enjoyment and pleasure!! Y ...more

I liked this 8th installment in the series, possibly because I've come to love Tank so much. He's always been the caring protector of the mates but at the same time yearning for a mate of his own. George is an interesting if not stubborn man and I found him to be a fun and unique offering to the "mates" in the house. I do enjoy the other mates but it's nice to have one that doesn't fit the stereotype. I liked the versatility of both characters too, even though it was a little hard for both of th ...more

Oh, how I love George! He is not little mate at 6'3". A cowboy from Wyoming who is hired to work as the cook at the Cafe, he rides into town with a broken heart and bad memories. He's a macho man who is little bit of a redneck, slightly narrow minded and he don’t bottom for anybody. He had some of the worse lines and they made me laugh at this swaggering stud who was too worried about not being "Tank's bitch". Of course the Mates got together and meddled...again. This was so fun. I cannot wait f

One of the best sayings in this book....“I think I’m having a heart attack. Check my cock,” Micah teased Oliver. His mate rolled his eyes but blushed.

I couldn't help but laugh my ass off when I read this. lol
2.5 stars. Although the wolves are STILL buckling grown men into their seatbelts. Who does that???
This one had some humor in it that was actually funny.

I liked the fact that George was different than the other mates. He also got Tank (so far the first warrior) to bottom. That's a first for this series. After 7 very effeminate males - it was a nice change.

2011 Review:

Reviewing three in row again, that means book 7-9.

Things are being shaken up a little, by way of having some mates who are not complete, er, pussies. (Sorry, but that’s way too fitting a word to not use it.)

I am kinda just breezing through most of the sex, at least after things have been established. It’s just not interesting enough.

I guess this split into another series, because (view spoiler). Man, I am glad this series
Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews
Can the tough, warrior wolf Tank handle a totally drool-worthy cowboy mate who refuses to play the submissive? The manly George must deal with his muscularly endowed suitor and his own need to dominate before finding peace with Tank as well. The Brac pack stands to gain a singular mate in George, but will he cooperate?

Each title in the Brac Pack series can be read alone, as the rules of mating and previous major events are explained in each book. Events also intertwine between books giving each

This was the first book I really liked in the series. It was good to finally see a warrior that offers himself and not his protection and to see a mate that is a man and not an overgrown boy. George doesn't need Tank to take care of him and loves him for whom Tank is. In this regard their relationship is the most believable so far, and the most adult.
Unlike with the others it was actually clear where an attraction came from and Tank was actually sweet and not so creepy and possessive as many oth

I might've given this one star except the one (or was it two) book I know I have given one star affected me much more than this one. This is my first Brac Pack book and likely my last.

The characters were okay but weren't handled well. While one MC kept thinking he'd take things slowly with his understandably skittish mate, he'd often turn right around and push anyway. Also, many of the scenes seemed very disjointed to each other. No smooth transitions here.

Extra star for starting off good.

I had high hopes for this one, I really did. I figured since George was 28 I was gonna get to read about two grown ups. Not the case. It started off good but then I wanted to junk punch George for his double standard. He didn't want to bottom but it's ok for the big guy to do it !?! Hmmm, I think not you selfish prick. He was an asshat, no two ways about it. Oh, and the last showdown. Really, are we sure George is 28 and not 8 or maybe all their mates are a litt

This was another pleasurable read. Tank finally found his mate, George, who is also the new cook at the diner. They had the cutest back and forth banter between them which I found hilarious most of the time. I liked that George was actually older than most of the other mates and he was also a pretty big cowboy, so that was different and I liked it. Even while having sex they were totally humorous fighting to see who will top. :) I thought it was well written and to the point, which moved the sto ...more
I loved this one.

George is definitely one of my favorite mates and he breaks the mold of being the more fragile partner that needs to be taken care of. There is also a touch of reality with George being cautious about open with his sexuality in a new environment and them having an equal sexual dynamics. I think that George and Tank have one of the healthiest relationships we've seen in the entire series and I love how they seemed to be equals with George standing beside, not behind, Tank.

I have to admit that these books are getting funnier and the quality of the writing is getting better. Remember that these are short, simple HEA stories and not meant to be too involved.
On that note, I really liked Tank and George. I'd already fallen in love with Tank for his big heart and gentle nature. George is typical of so many cowboys and watching him struggle and then find himself is a sight to see.

2.5 rounded to 3 stars

Didn't really care for this one a whole lot. The "dirty" talk during sex was just downright...bad. Bad, bad, bad. I'd just have to put a stop to the whole thing if my guy was saying that stuff lol. I still find myself laughing at some of the one liners in this series though.

Great book. Not one of my favorites but still a good read. There was a lot of humor in this one but that wasn't what didn't work for me, the pairing of mate and warrior didn't seem to fit. nyway, worth the time just the same to see the charachters from past books and see what is in store for the next title in the series.

Since I began reading this series Tank has been my favourite wolf and I have been looking forward to meeting his mate and I was not disappointed with George. I have to say I am a greedy reader I usually want much longer with the characters but I have to say these bite size stories are the perfect length.

I have enjoyed the series as a lite read but just didn't have as much fun with this one. The characters just didn't get me as much. The lack of good editing stood out more because of that. I'll keep reading since I have liked the series.
