Lyric’s Accidental Mate, Iron Wolves MC Book 1 is the first book in the Iron Wolves MC series by Elle Boon.

Lyric Carmichael is the younger sister to the second in command to the Iron Wolves pack. Lyric is twenty four years old but to say her brother is over protective would be a huge understatement. A night out with her girl friends to a club goes terribly wrong when an attempt is made to kidnap her by an unknown pack. Lyric considers herself to be a strong wolf, her brother and his bes

I asked for reading recommendations on my Facebook group because I wanted a super sexy shifter story and they definitely came through with this one. My very first by the author. I was hooked on Lyric and Rowan from the get go. Though the story moves at a rather fast pace, it has enough development to do a good showing in world building. Enough to make me what to read the next story right away. The plot wasn't all that inventive, as I have read several similarly planned. How

Now that I've had time to take a cold shower... Let me start by saying Elle boon knows how to write a hot sexy world of wolf shifters!!! Talk about hot as f##k totally alpha shifters!! I'm more of a vampire girl but,if one of these iron wolves mc dudes came knocking at this girls door I'd go wolf!!! Especially if it was kellen,xan,wyck or coti and the the women of the iron wolves are pretty hot too!! This is lyric's and rowan's story and it's awesome!!! What happens when a sexy human and a hot s ...more
Well the action parts seemed to be better written than the rest of the story. So I thought perhaps the author's writing had improved since my last read by EB...
But the dialogue was overly crude and ridiculous. Nobody talks like that, and if they do, I sure don't want to meet them, sheesh!
The women that are heroines in the series are virgins. The men are disgusting sluts.
Well except for the hero in this book. Thankfully there is nothing from his sexual past rubbed in our faces!

The BookChick
Ahhh, Elle Boon does it again with her new Iron Wolves MC series. Boon definitely has a true gift for writing potent and sexy romances that draw the reader in from the very beginning and keep their attention until the very end.

Lyric's Accidental Mate was definitely no different in that regard. Lyric Carmichael was a strong alpha female who really knew how to take care of herself -- even surrounded by a rogue group of shifters who meant her harm. Lyric was ready to take them on or die trying. Fo

Kitty's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I have to hand it to Elle Boon. She has one hell of an imagination. Besides her characters being extremely hot and interesting, she pens a story that has you wanting more and wishing that the next book would release the next day. Honestly, I couldn’t believe how quick this story moved. I felt like I just started it and I was reading the HEA. Damn, I really wanted more of Rowan and Lyric and the rest of the Iron Wolves MC. This looks like it

This is the first I've read by this author and I liked it. It was a cute sexy shifter book - definitely leans more towards the smutty erotica than the sweet romance.

Lyric (I love that name!) is a wolf shifter and part of the Iron Wolf MC - she's 24 years old and is no fainting female. I liked her snark but also her vulnerability when it came to her H.

Rowan is a human ex soldier that stops a kidnapping of the h and ends up getting bitten and then turned by Lyric. He was your typical alpha with
An ex-military man. Werewolves. A biker MC. Action. What else could this reader ask for? I love these elements, and to find them in a book? No way could I NOT pick this up to read.

Rowan's a human, and used to be in the military. He now runs a security business, which does very well for him. He goes out to a local bar for a drink, and maybe a side of sex, until he encounters a woman being manhandled. This he can't allow, nor was he raised to allow a woman to be mistreated. It goes against his ve

Perfect first book for the series !! Lyric must bite her mate Rowan to save him from being enslaved by the Rogue wolves who initially bit him, the biggest question is ; will he survive and will he ever forgive her for bringing him into the supernatural world ? As usual, Fate has her way and Rowan takes to being a shifter just like he took to being a Special Forces soldier !! He was made for it and Lyric was made for him !

Rowan and Lyric

Great story. I'm becoming a shifter addict. After a steady diet of male shifters, it was great to read a tale from the female shifter perspective. I'm loving it!
Lyric's accidental mate was a great plot twist to the myth of turning Werewolf from a bite. Lyric runs into trouble when jumped by another pack at a bar. Rowan as human steps in even though he's fighting an unknown, something not new to this rugged hero. I thought the way the author showed the difference between bitten and born was interesting, and I liked that there was a tie to a pack from a bite. Rowan as a former soldier was great as a tough wolf earning respect in the pack easily. Lyric and ...more

This is the first book I have read by Elle Boon but it is part of the Bite of the Moon series and also the first in the Iron Wolves MC series. Lyric is a wolf shifter that is tired of being under the overprotective eye of her brother and their Alpha. But a rival shifter pack as other plans. When Lyric is almost kidnapped, Rowan, an innocent, attempts to save her. Instead, he ends up being turned into a shifter that just happens to be Lyric’s mate.

Get Bitten!

This story is so good and Rowan is so hot, I love him, I was Bitten by him, I wish!

Lyric is out for a fun night of drinking and dancing with her friends, little does she suspect that there are evil men waiting to snatch her. Enter her 'Knight in Shining Armor', but as big and yummy as he is, he gets bitten. Therefore, she has no choice about what she has to do, after all he saved her and he makes her all tingly too.

Rowan never imagined that trying to save the gorgeous babe would be so

I really liked this story. Rowan is trying to save Lyric from enemy werewolves and Rowan himself is human, though Lyric is also a werewolf. He gets bitten by the enemy and she brings him to his home to help him with the transition. I like that Rowan is shown as already a strong alpha male and you know when he turns into a wolf he will be even more strong and more alpha. Oh. Yes. Please!

Really great story, but I thought it was a bit too short, but a great starting to an interesting biker mc/wolf

Adult readers only due to sexual content.
Lyric is the sister to the alpha's second, so no messed with her. Xan makes sure everyone in the Iron Wolves MC knows to stay away from his little sister. Lyric and her besties go out to the bar and things go side ways. The MC apparently has enemies. A few big baddies get Lyric separated from her group and outside, but a human tried to rescue her, not knowing that he's pissing off some wolf shifters.

I kept waiting for Erick Von Zipper to show up!

Lyric’s Accidental mate was recommended by a Goodreads friend as a fun, sexy, paranormal biker lite type read but this was not like any other MC I’ve ever come across.

It was entertaining in its own way, but this MC was just different. In fact, instead of an MC vibe going on, this gave off more of a California surfer club vibe. Think back to the old Annette Funicello/Frankie Avalon Movies. The one that most came to mind was Beach Blanket Bingo with T

Do you like romance, suspense and loyalty

Elle Boon has written an excellent story of finding true love in Lyric's Accidental Mate (Iron Wolves MC 1 ~ Bite of the Moon). I love how her characters take you on a suspenseful journey with an abundance of loyalty and love.

Lyric has a target on her back. She's bright, beautiful and sexy personified wolf shifter.

I think Lyric is my favorite badass heroine to date. Rowan, need I say more… he is just the right amount of sexy, badass, but still willing to accept help. Lyric, so much to say about her, she has an overprotective brother, an equally overprotective but more understanding Alpha, and some of the best friends a girl can have.

Lyric's Accidental Mate is the first book in the Iron Wolves MC series and a definite winner. Spectacular action-packed story-line, intriguing characters, a hot, mouth-watering alpha and a sexy, beautiful blonde beauty, Elle Boon writes a story that grabs you from the very first page and holds you captive until the very end.

Love this story!!

Ok I know I've read books by Elle Boon and knew this one was going to be good....but no she surprised me. It was GREAT! I loved the humor, the tenderness and the toughness of both the main characters. I don't think it was an accident that Lyric and Rowan met was awesome. If you haven't read this yet what are you waiting for? Take a run with these wolf's!
