The relationship development was nonexistent, and Garth's kids were old enough to know better. The mystery of Nico's past made little sense. (view spoiler) All the characters acted and talked the same. Maybe I should have started with book 1. This one was a dud.

This fourth story wasn't just fun, there was amnesia to overcome, a mystery to solve, and some surprising bad guys to deal with. The pairing between Nico, a hummingbird shifter, and Garth, a lynx shifter with two kits, was just as unlikely as any of the previous ones - and just as satisfying once the two mates put aside their differences. Or rather, in this case, once Nico overcame his past and his reluctance.

It was also great to see some of the characters from the first three books reappear, an...more
I liked this story except for the (view spoiler) story. Also I'm starting to skip over the sex scenes, too many, too frequent, but probably more because I'm reading the series all in one go and I'm starting to feel full up with the premise and the sex. However I'm compulsive so I'll still go on reading.....all the way to Book 14. Thank goodness they're short but that'll teach me to start this style of series without a fallback book to read a little...more
Lynx shifter Garth Mckenna finds Hummingbird shifter Nicholas to be the sunshine of this dark world. When they meet, the attraction is electric. There is only one hitch in Garth’s happiness—his sons reject Nicholas, pulling Garth in two directions. Does he choose his mate or his sons? When Nicholas is threatened, Garth will do all in his power to save the one he loves.

The Lynx Who Claimed the Sun by Scarlet Hyacinth is the fourth book in the Mate or Meal series. This is the first book I have rea...more
Garth's kids? Yeah, no! They are old enough to know better.

I also felt like we missed some of the building relationship :( In the previous books, I really liked Nico, but in this one? Not so much. I don't know why though.

I quite enjoy this series. By this point, you will already know what to expect from Scarlet Hyacinth.

That being said, this is not my favorite from the series. I prefer some of the later books to this one.
For a short story, these books are fully packed.

Yes, they are insta-love, but with "mate" in the title, that is to be expected. And in shifter stories I find I don't have an issue with it. Because in this series, it's actually not necessarily "insta-love" as so much "instantly knowing we are mates and meant to be together". The "I love you" bit is not mentioned immediately (unlike the sex lol) and there are always some issues to be sorted before everlasting love gets declared. And that is one th...more
typical Scarlet Hyacinth serial romance. nothing fantastic, nothing so bad it can't be finished. what is typical Scarlet Hyacinth? imagine a shorter harlequin romance but with no t&a (see, i was going to write no surprise pregnancies, but... yeah.).

out of sheer laziness, i will be using this as my template for all serials by UNLESS motivated otherwise by markedly good/bad writing:

This series just keeps getting better! There is action, adventure, romance, mystery and cute albeit bratty kids. I admit there was a slight dip from book one to book two with Shiloh acting like a bipolar nutcase but the third book had a lot less angst and more action so it was almost perfect. This one cinched the deal. Best one of the series yet. Can't wait for the next two!

Fue un cambio interesante encontrarse con un felino en vez de un lobo en esta cuarta parte. Y el colibrí, he adorado a Nico, y a la pareja por supuesto, aunque pasan por un dramón de los grandes. A su vez es lindo encontrarse con unas cuantas pistas para el próximo. Recomendadísimo
Well good or bad I am a big fan of this series. To be honest this wasn't my fav so far but it was still pretty good. For me it was too rushed but it seemed more an issue with the word count. There were to many untied ends left in my opinion.
I enjoyed this...loved seeing some previous characters back and I really enjoyed this couple. I think the books are getting better and better and more consistent. Really enjoyed this one!

There is nothing special about the book. My reading was very fast. I don't understand why Scarlet Hyacinth is writing that series of books is she is not doing it the right way.
I know I'm not objective, but I just love this book
This series is just getting better and better
I really enjoy this serie so far.
