After an explosive night of passion during a scenting ceremony, Karla Alves is sure she was just a one night stand for the man she'd been crushing on for years. She teased him and pleased him, and Nate hasn't been around since. Her fear of becoming clingy kept her from risking her heart and asking for more than a few hours of skin sin.

Nathan Wolfe marked Karla. His mate. D

Another fabulous read! To me this was Milly's best so far. Great character development, action, romance and erotica all in one book. I love how this book is part of a series, yet totally stands alone on its own. It was so easy to fall into this book, because it moves at a quick pace without missing a beat. Once I started reading, it was a Do Not Put Down Until Finished Book! Nate is a totally hot male lead and Karla is the type of female character that all females can relate too in some way.

I can't help it. Once again this author did not disappoint. The story isn't overwhelmed by paranormal aspects, yet they enhance the entire plot. There's not chapters spent explaining anything and though it's a 2nd book in the series, readers are not left in the dark. It could very well work as a stand alone novel.

Larger than life Karla is amazing! I love her spunky attitude. I love the fact that she is a real woman. She's not toothpick thin, she embraces her body the way it is. She's not intimi

I am Team Nate all the way!!! This book is the second book of the Sassy Mates series and it was even better than the first. Taiden ramped up the danger and the passion in this one. I loved the characters and their depth. Karla absolutely broke my heart in some respects but Nate...big strong alpha that he was...pursued her every step of the way! A family situation allowed Karla to see that family is not just who you share blood with but those who will be with you through thick and thin. I want to ...more

Once Bitten, Twice as Scared! Our 5 sassy women are back again! Now that Jordan and Aric have mated, it's time for another couple, Karla and Nate, to fall. But this one is a little different, she is scared he won't really commit based on her mother's experience with men. Not to mention someone still seems to be after Jordan and Kass, Karla's identical twin, shows up to cause problems. And now a bit about the story...

We start at the same scenting ceremony from book one, but this time "Spot" (aka

A Mate’s Bite is a passionate, action packed, emotional rollercoaster ride that you do not want to miss!
A woman physiologically scarred by a loveless childhood, and a shifter determined to prove that his love and devotion can mend her shattered heart.
Ms Taiden’s second instalment in the Sassy Mates series is nothing short of BRILLIANT!!

A super hot, sweet, and lovely romance, A Mate's Bite was a wonderful read. I really liked this book. It was a truly enjoyable romance read.

Both of the main characters were great. Karla was tough and unwilling to let anyone walk all over her. But, she was also kind and willing to forgive if given a reason to. I really liked her. Nate was very sweet and loyal to those he cared about. I really liked him, too.

The romance was very hot. The chemistry was just sizzling between these two. And, they wer

A Mate's Bite, has some over-lapping scenes with The Scent of a Mate and well Nate is just as yummy as Aric, perhaps even more so and Karla good grief I loved her, "his big body loomed over her. She swallowed hard. "You''re naked." Nate when he's into his wolf side that man is all animal, "baby," he groaned. A quick flick of his wet tongue and he licked her belly in a circle. "You smell delicious" He holds nothing back where his girl is concerned, "baby, the wild side wants to eff yo ...more

A Mate's Bite is Milly Taiden's second book in her Sassy Mates series. Each book can be read as a stand alone book but the series does feature recurring characters so I definitely recommend reading Scent of a Mate first.

In A Mate's Bite, Karla Alves is in love with one of her best-friend's brothers and has been for seven years. Nate Wolfe secretly returns her feelings and has decided to finally make his move at a wolf scenting ceremony. Wolf politics, terrible siblings, and some bad wolves don't

Second book in the series, very light on story, heavy on the sex. As a result, I don’t remember alot of details (and I just finished it) other than Kara is protective of her heart, and what’s his face isn’t a strong hero, but he’s apparently very hot and they have lots of hot sex. Why did I pick this, you may ask? It's a BBW story, which I gravitate to, I do like the family structure, and I’ll probably keep reading, if only because I am hoping that the next book delves more into the characters a ...more

Wow this book was so awesome I could not put it down from the beginning to the end. Nate is trying to prove that he loves her and will be there no matter what her child hood was like, he wants to show her love. This story is action packed with a lot of emotional turns that keep you wanting to read. Milly Taiden did a wonderful job in her second book to the Sassy Mates series. This book has such a great story line and strong characters. You will not want to miss this book and you might want to pi ...more
I'm done with this series now

I don’t know; this was just a blah sort of read to me. It felt way to similar to previous book, and I tend to bail out when all the characters and plots start feeling too similar. The sex in this read was hot. But everything else seemed to be overly cliché and predictable. The storyline never really appealed to me. I also feel this book is currently way over priced at its listing price of $3.99. It's only 166 pages.

This is not a particularly great book, but a perfect pool side read.
Once again, Ms. Taiden has written a steamy, can't put it down, hot shifters and great family dynamic book! A Mate's Bite is a great follow up in the Sassy Mates series. At the start, we go back to the beginning of Scent of a Mate to the scenting ceremony to see what happens when Nate happens upon Karla setting up to view the proceedings. And like in the first book, things get steamy and fast! Karla has had a big 'ol crush on Nathan Wolfe for the last seven years. But since she grew up with a mo ...more

First let me say that while this book could stand alone alright, I highly recommend reading them in order to avoid confusion and unanswered questions. It’s absolutely worth it!

This book, like the last, puts a lot of value in family, regardless of blood relation. The importance of friends and true family is so strong that it just makes you think of those you hold dear. My only complaint is that Kelvin is such a fun part of the beginning of the book that I was sad when he just sort of falls off th

Upon meeting all the characters in Scent of a Mate, I knew each of their stories would be great. Karla had a not so stellar upbringing. She is one of triplets, but was only close to her brother. Nate is a Wolfe, so he was raised in a tight, loving family. The joining of these two, despite her issues was magical.

This book could have been SO MUCH BETTER. It was mostly just a continuation of the first book, but from different characters perspectives. There wasn't enough of the story revolving around the new characters, and way to much happening to those from the first book. It was awkward, and unbelievable. Ill give the next one a try, and hope for better than we got with this one.

I will be the first to admit that Karla and her commitment and attachment issues remind me of myself before i met my husband. Her mother is nutz and so is mine. needless to say i was able to strongly relate to the characters in this second installment of Milly Hottness!. Loved It! the small teases about the other fantastic four Wolfe brothers makes me want the next book asap. Read it folks!

I don't really care for Karla. I don't think her backstory with men is all that believable just because her mom couldn't keep a man. Surely Karla would have realized the problem was her mom, not men, as she grew up.

Also, the Sassy Wolfe?! That is a stupid name for a bar. Nate just killed his business because no guys would frequent a bar called the Sassy Wolfe. I wouldn't go to a bar called the Sassy Wolfe, and I'm female. I may just be biased against the word sassy though, which is unfortunate f

OK shifter romance, but h was kind of annoying

This is an OK shifter romance, and I liked Nate -- but Karla got a bit annoying after a while. She was determined not to give Nate a chance, just because her mother had a series of bad relationships. Karla knew that it was because her mother made bad choices, and needed to take responsibility for her mistakes -- but she still tried to keep Nate from really getting to know her. I understand that she was damaged by her mother. The strange thing was she

I really like this sassy set of girlfriends! They have their issues, but I'm happy to see that the sexy four are finding their way through their walls. Of course there's action and danger, not as much as book one but just enough! I believe that if you enjoy a good shifter book you'll enjoy this series.

I couldn't get into this couple. It felt almost like a carbon copy of the first. If their romance was founded some other way then yea, I could've given it a better go.

But it's an ok read for those that like a HEA and some shifter kink. Of course there's a little drama and a whole lotta heroine denial. Just not enough unique wooing for me to get hyped up on.

Arika Rapson was a great narrator, I have listened to other books and enjoyed them as well. I have never listened to Milly Taiden before, but I really enjoyed the overall story as well as the love story. I thought that it was very cute how all of these brothers fell in love with their sisters college friends. I can't wait to see how the story unravels and to listen to the next book.
