** using spoiler tags for tangential musings **

Oh, I’m so close to giving this a “didn’t like it”, which is a shame after hovering at “liked it” for a longish while. My opinion about this just kept going down and down.

The premise is not new, nor is it one I particularly enjoy. To have shifters bent on killing other shifter species because they’re supposedly inferior or prey… it depresses me. Racism is always ugly, but if coupled with physical assault and murder it gains a whole new level of horr

This one is a little diff. than of shifter stories in that, they live most of the time in their animal, I think, they live in the forest in dens or holes in trees but then once in side they shifter to human. (must be a big hole in the tree)
At times it was confusing if they were in animal form or human, since they can "talk" telepathically to the others in their packs. And clothes "magically" disappear when they shift. Then they walk around in the woods in human form naked, cause some only have

I enjoyed Alpha Mate, but there are some gaping holes in the story that spoiled my overall impression of the book. In particular, the wolves and foxes' lifestyle in the forest was absurd. Running around naked and living in dens does not really help earn a living, nor does it explain how the protagonists can blend in so well when they have to mix with humans. And then there was the clothing that kept appearing and disappearing -- that was both annoying and confusing.

How did the wolves have a big handful of cash?

I like the book, hate the world it's set in. It does sound more realistic and more natural but also depressing.

When did Jacob heave time to teach him anything?

I love that things aren't black and white, that the seemingly repulsive Redden had valid reasons for what he did, if misguided.

a nice read, but I still had difficulties finishing the story, it was beginning nicely and at the middle of the book became a little messy and the end was casual.

This story was simple and easy. The plot was to unrealistic for my own taste, but enjoyable enough.

Good start. Its interesting pairing wolf/fox but plot has his weakness to.

Fun, enjoyable story with a small cute fox shifter and his big tough wolf shifter lover. Plot is believable enough, and there's a happy ending. Perfect if you're in the mood for something light.

It was a fun reading, but some parts anoyed me also. Like the Alpha who keeps changing his mind if they could be together or not. But it was entertaining.
