While I liked the first, and went on to like others in the series very much, I had a BIG problem with the hypocrisy and double standard in this one. I was actually looking forward to the sassy Breezy character we meet in the first book and to discovering some depth to the broody second in command but alas, I was doomed to be disappointed.

Honestly, if the plot and writing stood without the stuff that made me cringe, it would have been a pretty strong tale. However, the crippling effect that is X

Linda Levy's review

Authors, you are women too. Could you please stop the slut-shaming and double standards? I don't need that when I'm reading a romance. I need fun, not a reminder of how far we still need to go before society accepts women's sexuality as something normal and not a taboo.

I found this comments on Erika's status and I agree wholeheartedly (although I love virgin heroines in books, just not when used as

This had so much potential! I loved the whole shifter/mate insta-romance thing it had going on but it fell flat for me when the H, Xan judges the h, Breezy because of the clothes she wears. He thinks she's too easy and assumes (the jackass) that because she walks and talks and dresses the way she does she's an easy lay. This coming from a guy that has a different chick every night!?! What a steaming pile of double standards shite!

Turns out Breezy is actually a virgin (and I lost all respect for
Never will read. This makes me literally sick to my stomach. Disgusting (at least to me personally).

I finished Xan's Feisty Mate today and I have to say that I'm sad. Sad that this amazing story is over and that I'll have to wait for the next installment. Boon just keeps upping the ante with this series, and that's saying something because I was seriously impressed with the stage she set in Lyric's Accidental Mate.

Xan's Feisty Mate contained moments of revelations (a BIG one), sweetness (who knew a moody alpha could be so sweet!), sacrifice (Breezy...that GIRL!!!), and sexiness (in spades!!).

Elle Boon, Bless Your Heart, I love you soooo very f***ing hard!
This is the story of Xan and Breezy and what a sizzling hot story it is But then I have come to expect NO LESS from this author.
Well written it flowed with exceptional ease, it read like it was on fast forward, so it was read in one sitting, over a coffee this morning!.
The characters are strong, alpha males who protect that which are their own..
Their woman are just as strong, although they show the alpha and t

I definitely felt this story was fleshed out better than book one. I loved that there was constant action going on. I love the whole wolf pack cast of characters, so dang moody and funny.

Xan has been avoiding his true mate for ages, and off being a man whore- breaking Breezy's heart time and time again. He has a misguided view of her character.

Breezy has stood by, having her heart ache for a 'douche bag' of a mate, not understanding why he doesn't want to claim they are mates. She tried all sh

Freebie! Xan was a judgemental jerk at first, but turned into a sweet-talking, sexy devoted mate. He and Breezy were good together. I want to get Kellen's book but gotta hope it becomes free one of these days.

I received an ARC copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

I really enjoyed this book. It is the first Elle Boon book I've read and it definitely left me wanting to read more of her work. If you read Elle's bio on Amazon or the end of Xan's Feisty Mate, Iron Wolves MC 2 (and I would hazard a guess pretty much any bio you'll find), you learn that she is a fan of dropping the f-bomb quite liberally. This is absolutely the truth. If you are uncomfortable with swearing, thi

2.5 stars only due to the background story being very good. Hero is horrible and heroine lacks self-respect. Xan is a complete horror to Breezy and Breezy was too easy and accepting.
I like the background story but the beginning annoyed me and I never connected with these two idiots. Him because Xan was a major asshat, male-whore, hypocritical double standard prick. Breezy was just too insipid. No backbone or respect for herself.
Book 1 is/was a free read. The first book was great, I loved it, an

Gritty, Sexy story of survival and pack dynamics

We meet Breezy as she is leaving work at the ER and is attacked in the parking garage. Fortunately by calling on her wolf she is able to escape and places a call to the Alpha Kellen who has her come to the Iron Wolves MC. Xan, pack beta, is in the fight cage blowing off steam, but becomes quickly aware of her when Breezy arrives. He has a mistaken, poor impression of her but is always drawn to her nonetheless, and tells her he will accompany her h

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

Totally exciting, full of SO. MUCH. STEAMY. SEX. And lots of ferocious, terrifying, thrilling fight scenes that will leave you cringing and fist pumping the air! Xan's Feisty Mate is the second book to Elle Boon's AMAZING Iron Wolves MC series that features Xan and Breezy. At first, Xan doesn't want a mate, especially one who he assumed got around. But that all changes when Breezy is almost killed after leaving her work. Things become crystal clear for him after

Some authors just have it in spades and that’s Elle Boon! And who would have thought that the second book in Iron Wolves series could pack even more punch than book one?

Continuing on the path of danger, mystery and intrigue, Xan finds himself unwillingly pulled by the mating urge to a female targeted by a an unknown foe and lacking the moral standards he desires in his perfect mate; or so he thinks. But when someone tries to kidnap this feisty she-wolf, all Xan’s protective instincts surge to t

Full of twisty suspense and action!

Xan Charmichael is the Iron Wolves beta. He is also a known man-slut with no intentions of settling down any time soon. The entire club is on high alert due to his little sister's almost abduction and the subsequent turning of her mate Rowan, who we met in book 1, Lyric's Accidental Mate. Now Breezy is in trouble and Xan's wolf won't let him ignore her any longer, no matter how many other men she has been with. Brielyn "Breezy" Mattice is smart, sexy and has be

Elle Boon does it again! I thoroughly enjoyed this hot and sexy read with it's edge of danger, mystery, and suspense.

Xander (Xan) Carmichael is the sexy bad-boy beta of the Iron Wolves MC and wolf pack. He can (and often does) have a different woman (or two) every night. No way he's ready to settle down. And even if he was, it wouldn't be with Breezy Mattice, a she-wolf in his pack who's been around a little too much for him. And then he finds out she's in danger.

Holy crap this is one sexy ride. This is a paranormal MC romance that will knock your soxs off.
Xan is second in command of his MC as well as his pack and he has been resisting the mating pull for over a year. But when his mate is put into danger he will stop at nothing to protect and have her for himself. Xan is a real sweetheart who has a nasty mouth and brain. But when he starts to sweet talk his mate man did I give a mighty sigh in envy.
Breezy is Xans mate and has finally decided to give up

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Xan is adamant that no matter what Breezy and he will not be mated, no matter how much his wolf wants her. He wants a nice innocent little mate. Breezy wants Xan but his constant dismissal has her turning her back and walking away from temptation. That is until Breezy is targeted and Xan faces the possibility of loosing his mate.

If your looking for a common place shifter romance, this is not for you. However if you are looking for a spicy, action packed read, with a smart and sassy heroine (knows when to fight, and when to leave that for her mate, seriously, she has brains and a strong sense of who she is) this read is for you. If you like your hero's, hot, strong enough to admit when they were wrong (by ignoring their mate), and possessive, this book is for you.

I received an ARC for an honest review of this book. I'm not really good at writing reviews but here goes: I absolutely LOVED this book. Xan and Breezy were perfect for each other and it was nice to see a female who was strong but still submitted to her mate. Once Xan realized that Breezy was his mate, nothing would keep him from her. Now I can only hope that the next book will be about Kellen and Laikyn as there seems to be a lot of tension between them.
