** re-read, 4 1/2 stars, My only complaint is that I wish this book was longer. This book was really, really, really good and I got sucked right into the story and the world building (which was really well done especially for a short story). But I was enjoying myself so much that seeing the percentage on my kindle rise started to freak me out a little. I also really wish this book had an epilogue, yes I want EVERY book to have an epilogue but this one could have benefitted from it so we could se ...more

It was an attempt. That's all. Followed a cardboard, cookie cutter plot/insta-mate format that had a backdrop of an MC world that was superficially ornamental when paired with the paranormal aspect.
A short story(so, didn't waste that much time) with characters who are very unimportant.

2 3/4 "Fated mates" Stars!

This wasn't bad. There just wasn't that much to it. I may read another one. Who knows?? 😎 Happy reading!

“But when he turned my way and met my stare, my knees nearly buckled. One look into those sky-colored eyes and my body responded.”

You can imagine yourself just how her body responded. Or, you know… read the book.

Wolf shifters, guys. Wolf. Shifters. Need I say more?

I’ve known Ellis Leigh’s writing for a while, so that wasn’t a concern. Her writing is fantastic. With fantasy series setting up the world is key. I think Leigh got it spot on, and I’m sure throughout the next installments we’ll get m

The premise of this book was great but for me it was just too short. The beginning confused me as I wasn't sure how everything was divided up.I didn't connect with the characters and sometimes I felt that it was forced. This is just my personal opinion. ...more

Shifter romance 2.5 to 3 stars.

I nearly skipped past this book but the synopsis pulled me in, I liked the idea for Rebel finding his mate after two hundred years.
Charlotte may have a degree but she earns way more waitressing at Amnesia Gentleman's Club than she would sitting at a desk using a computer, and waitressing is all she does she doesn't dance or do extras, that way she can hold her head up and talk about her job with her brother without shame or regret.

Nice shifter romance

It seems like all shifter books have a little bit different perspective on the shifter myth. This one has both born shifters and bitten shifters. But of course women shifters can’t be created by bites, only very strong men can survive the bite and it has to be near the spine. Also both kinds can live many hundreds of years and humans can be their tru mates, though the book never explains if the human mate lives a normal lifespan or if somehow the mating process extends their

To be honest my first thought was to give this one 3 stars. I mean I really liked it but it wasn't something spectacular, just your usual short, light, steamy PNR. Oh but I gave it 4 stars for Gates. Man, I can't wait to read his story. ...more

Totally enjoyed this story. My only wish was that there was a bit more relationship or HEA. It just sort of ended.

The cover of this book was crazy sexy. I really tried to enjoy this book and I think I would have had it been longer.

I liked this novel! However, like many the only complaint was that it was pretty short.

I absolutely loved the possessiveness, hotness and steaminess between the H/h.

This book was really short, but I still really enjoyed it. It was fast paced with lots of action.

Choosing between your bike club and your soul mate isn’t an easy choice to make, especially if you’re a wolf shifter, meaning your pack means everything to you, just like a family.

After finding the love of his life, Rebel struggles with the needs and wants of the modern woman in front of him, Charlotte, who is completely different from the antique women Rebel used to deal with when he was younger (“younger” meaning two hundred years younger). Charlotte wants to take control, to lead thei

I enjoyed this book but was disappointed by the ending. Yes, it's happy in its own way, but not what I was hoping for. I know the ending implies he keeps his promises, but we never actually see that. The ending is the same as everything their relationship had been up to this point: sex. I really would've liked to see the new, reformed Rebel a bit and not just hear the words. Again, the ending implies their happily ever after with him being the man he described that will love her and do so much m ...more

Rebel comes to town looking for the cause of a woman in the hospital with mysterious claw makes. He's there to make sure if it was a shifter that the problem gets taken care of. What he wasn't expecting was to find her.

Charlotte aka Cherry works as a waitress at a strip club because it's more money than she'd get with her hard earned degree, and with her taking care of her brother money is more improtant than Julian not getting what he needs. When she went to work that night though she wasn't ex

Fast paced, adrenaline, sexy and a bit scary all wrapping in one quick story.

Rebel and his club head out to check up on a possible "man-eater" , a wolf or wolves that harm or kill humans, threatening their secret.

Cherry a waitress at the gentlemens club gets more than she bargined for during work. An undeniable instant attraction to a sexy man in bikers gear, threatened by her boss to work the basement, almost killed and increadible hot sex including multiple orgasms....What a night!

As many have said, Ellis has a way with words. The story is too short for those of us that got sucked in with first sentence. Ellis has painted a world with words that I love to read about. She's set a good foundation for a long series in a shifter world that I will definitely read.

Rebel, a 200+ year old shifter, is den president of a MC of wolves, tasked with finding a rogue that needs taking down. The club's first stop is full of surprises. His "doesn't know about shifters" human mate is the b

This is the first shifter book I've ever read, and I must say, I WANT MORE!

It was a quick, fun read. The sex scenes were so steamy, and the two main characters were wonderful. I loved Rebel and Cherry so very much. My favorite thing though? The mating pull. DAMN. I'm a sucker for undeniable attraction, and this hit the nail on the head.

Other than that, the author is definitely creating a world here. There's background into the shifter community, traditions within such communities, and the wolf

This was a short, sexy werewolf novella . I really enjoy werewolf novels and this one was definitely HOT. And I thought it was an interesting story line too - Rebel happens to stumble upon his fated mate in a strip club while investigating a murder. Cherry (Charlotte) only waitresses at the strip club but gets forced to go into the basement to entertain the crowd down below.

I thought the characters were very believable. I could feel their emotions, and couldn't stop reading at points. This is t

Awesome read about wolf shifter. Love the short read about Rebel and Charlotte together.

“I glanced at Gates who stared back at me, silent. I could have lied, could have told her whatever I thought she needed to hear to calm down. 
But instead, I shrugged and told her the truth. 
“Because you're meant to be mine.”

“I swear, if you hurt him, I'll kill you with my bare hands.” I glared at Shadow in warning.
Shadow chuckled as he inspected Rebel’s wounds. “Threatening a defenseless, naked man. Looks li

Really enjoyable read. You've got your done-to-death shifter w/ a destined mate trope going, but with some small yet awesome twists. Among other things this is only the second "destined mate" book I've read that didn't have rapey overtones of the mate in question being given no choice.
The book ends more on a happily-for-now than happily-ever-after, but the for-now is a solid foundation for a happy, healthy relationship.

Add to that solid plot, interesting characters, conflict that isn't built on

MC and werewolves how could I not read this. Decent read not a lot happening but a good starter book. To many unanswered questions.
I should have really liked this one, shifters and a MC book, how could it go wrong! Sadly after about 30% I gave it up. I can't really put my finger on what didn't work for me with the book, just that with each page I found myself getting more and more disinterested. In the end this one wasn't for me. ...more

A fun two hour read but compared to other shifter romances it had good bones/outline but characters, conflict, world just generally lacked being used to their fullest potential.
