Legal Wolf’s Mate is by Eve Langlais. It is currently available in the Growl (Feral Passions #1) anthology along with stories by A.C. Arthur and Kate Douglas. This will be available by itself on October 4. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by NetGalley, St. Martin’s Press, and by the author.

The last thing Megan remembers before waking up to the police busting down her door and arresting her for murder was coming home to her apartment, Thai food in hand, with the hopes of some serious chillaxing time. How the hell did she end up in jail for a crime she has no recollection of committing? Who could want to frame her for her boss’ death? And what the heck happened to her takeout?

Legal Wolf’s Mate by Eve Langlais
Hilarity in the prose and situations plus twists for the fated mates. Silly and fun lines like “Mess with my woman, mess with me. Apparently, wolves like cavemen had a lot in common.”
Sexy and comedic romance that leaves me asking who’s next. And then the author clearly tells you in the epilogue.
Love this author.

Told in 3rd person and dual POV, this book was the tale of successful attorney and werewolf, Gavin (who was extremely hot), working to exonerate Megan of murder. It didn't help that she seemed to be framed and that he didn't have all of the facts of the case. It also didn't help that someone out there was out to get her. Or that he was extremely attracted to her. Or that she was his mate! Did I mention that Megan was human? And that she was reluctant? Not to mention

Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.

Legal Wolf's Mate-- a paranormal quickie that's full of entertaining characters. The basic gist is that Megan has been set up for her new boss's murder and our dashing hero, Gavin, just happens to be a lawyer and intrigued. And a little knocked back on his ass since it turns out his new client...totally his future mate.

This was a pretty fun read at first. I really enjoyed Gavin and Megan. She's a little fiery, he's a

This story by Eve Langlais is also available in an anthology called Growl so if you own that book than this story will not be new to you. I've loved her purple aliens so finding out her take on wolves was something I was very keen to do and must admit it was quite a surprise !
Gavin is a lone wolf and I was very intruiged by his relationship with the wolf who turned him but alas it's a short story so I'm left wanting more information about that. When Gavin is asked to

Legal Wolf's Mate was a good fast read. Gavin is a lone wolf that enjoys being alone. Everything changed until he was asked to represent a woman with a murder case. This story was a bit mysterious and involved some god action scenes.

“You’re my lawyer, or maybe not. I’m really beginning to rethink this whole idea.”

You know I was actually enjoying it up until the plot twist and it just ruined it. He's kind of an asshole domineering alpha wolf which worked for him. She was funny and sassy and wasn't taking his shit. She could give right back. and then....

It went from funny and sassy to this stupid plot twist that was just threw everything off. I don't mind a strong female character, in fact I love them, but this just felt way off. I was enjoying the characters as they were and then there is an

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy:

There are so many fun surprises in LEGAL WOLF’S MATE that I was grinning the whole time I was reading it. The characters are fun, the mystery is just weird enough to be interesting, and the romance is smoking hot.

In a world where only men can be werewolves, the women who they love need to be strong. Gavin isn’t sure that Megan is strong enough to deal with being a wolf’s mate, but as soon as he sees her sitting in his waiting room, he knows he has to

This was by far the strongest story in the Growl anthology so I'm rather happy it's been released by itself.

Cocky, super lawyer Gavin is blindsided by his mate who may or may not be a murderer. Lots of steamy goodness on the way to unraveling this who done it.

Legal Wolf's Mate is part of the Growl anthology but it can be purchased as a standalone here.

I was rather excited about Legal Wolf's Mate: the blurb seemed right up my alley so its the only reason I read this anthology. I've not read a lot of Eve Langlais lately as the last few books by her that I've read have been more miss than hit for me.

I was really, really hoping that Legal Wolf's Mate would change that for me... It did and it didn't at the same

Gavin is a very successful lawyer and a werewolf. A werewolf that doesn't really believe in the idea of "the One" and prefers instead to play the field. However, when he meets his newest client, Gavin realizes it is not a myth. Now he must get his client acquitted of murder and convince her that they are meant to be together. But Megan has a few secrets of her own that may or may not conflict with Gavin's plans.

I read this from the Growl anthology.

I've read a few of the author's other works, and they were hit and miss for me, but it had been a few years since I had read one of her works, so when the publisher asked me to read and review this one, I decided to take a shot at it. Unfortunately, I wasn't that impressed with it.

Legal Wolf's Mate by Eve Langlais is a sexy paranormal shifter romance, wrapped with some mystery, and topped with a wicked twist to make this fun story completely irresistible.

At the insistence of his friend and fellow shifter, Gavin takes on a pro bono case for a woman being accused of murdering her boss. He has no problem trying to defend a suspected murderess. However, this wolf-shifting lawyer, is completely thrown for a loop when he realizes his new client is his mate!

This was given as an ARC from the publisher.

This was actually a part of an Anthology of Eve Langlais Kate Douglas and A.C. Arthur.
It was pretty much of the same content but, reading it again brings back the humor the first time I read it.

I so love Gavin, and remembering how obnoxious he was brought the memories back. He wasn’t gullible, nor he was stupid, but, he is just in love and lawyer makes things a little bit dicey. I remember him being charming and demanding and how pissed he was. But

This was a fun, fast paced story that had me guessing until the end. Sexy Gavin, an attorney no less, struggles to snare his little rabbit Megan. They both met their match in each other and it was fun watching them both realize it. Overall it was a sexy, funny mystery.

Legal Wolf’s Mate is an adorable shifter story by paranormal romance veteran Eve Langlais. At 113 pages, it is definitely a shorter tale, but this author knows how to work the length. First presented in the Growl anthology, this tale of lawyer meets client included shifter action and notorious crime bosses. Fans of Langlais know that she loves to use snark and humor in her work, and this was no exception. I will say that the heroine in this case

I have just finished reading this book and found it an entertaining read.

The characters are well developed, strong and funny. I found myself laughing on so many occasions and it kept me reading until the very end. I loved the two main characters and their interactions were awesome!! The story was well presented and I found myself trying to work out who the bad guy was, which tells you how well it was written.

I'm looking forward to reading future books by Eve Langlais and will certainly be

With Gavin it's not all about business 24/7, “I will, in a minute. First, I think we need to take care of more pressing business .” His business pressed against her lower belly." Gavin can do smart things...when it suits him, "he ducked as she threw the glass bowl of candy on the table. “I see you need time to process this, and I really should go get that paperwork done.” He just couldn’t help himself. He flashed her a cocky grin..." I really loved this book, and I can't wait for more to come in ...more

If you are looking for a fun way to spend the afternoon with an alpha werewolf lawyer who has just realized his next client is also his mate then this book might be for you. There is heat, humor, happiness and there are also a few unexpected twists that keep things moving right along. This was quick and easy to read and I would like to thank NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.

Not up to her usual abilities. Not only was it not as funny as usual, but it wasn't as well-written. It did a lot of telling, not showing. The dialogue was clumsy. Disappointing.

I enjoyed it but it seemed a bit rushed, which might have been because it was originally written for an anthology.

Megan our h, is a surprise package and the chemistry between her & Gavin, our werewolf H, is explosive. Gavin just doesn't understand why his fated mate isn't agreeing with everything he says, most of which is for her protection. She's been framed for murder and as a down on her luck secretary, she should just be saying Yes, please. Nah not her, the arguing & bickering was

I am normally a huge fan of Eve Langlais so when I had the opportunity to read and review Legal Wolf’s Mate I was excited, unfortunately though it was not one that I enjoyed. I love paranormal romance, especially shifters but this one was sort of all over the place and that took away from the plot. I also think parts were under developed or rushed. This one had the potential to not only set up more books in the series but to be a book that I would have loved. I wonder if it had been longer
