So... I've had poison ivy covering almost every part of my body for the last two weeks. What relevance does that have to writing a review of a book, you ask? A lot apparently.
I cannot decide if the my homicidal annoyance at everyone in the book is just my norm, or that I may be a bit more irritable because I want to scrub my entire body with a loofah made entirely from steel wool, and sandpaper.
Despite all this, I can actually pick out a few points I know would bug me otherwise. First off,
Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
Fighting for her Mate is book five in the Sassy Mates series. We finally get Ellie and Caleb’s story.

The author doesn't pull any punches. This one is filled with so many happy and sad moments, previous characters coming into play, and finally Caleb making a stand to remove the man who is slowly destroying his pack. This one has your emotions all over the place, lots of action, and no shortage of the hot and steamy moments; between our couple.

I really loved this book and if it ends here it was a

I have to admit it's disappointing to wait for so long for the next book in a series, only to read it and feel like you've just wasted your time on the whole series. This story goes way over the top, and not in a good way. It's like the author got bored and was trying to find new ways to make the story more "fantastic", but made it more unbelievable instead.

This story is supposed to be about Ellie and Caleb, but it's not really. They've already met, marked, and married before the book comes
The BookChick
After waiting for what seems like forever, Taiden finally gives us Ellie and Caleb's story. Where the first four books picks up from The Gathering and follows Ellie's brothers and their mates, her story is very different. Ellie is mated to Caleb, the heir apparent of the Rahound pack. Unfortunately, Caleb's uncle is more than a little resistant to relinquishing that position. Caleb is essentially the outlaw of his pack and wants to take his uncle down to show just how much of a rightful heir he ...more

I can’t finish this book. It’s supposed to be Ellie & Caleb’s story but we’ve barely heard from them & now there’s some kooky shit going on with the triplets... eugh I give up.

Finally, Caleb and Ellie's book!!! So worth the wait!!! Caleb has been trying to take out his Uncle Rocco who took over as pack alpha when Caleb's dad died in a car crash several years before. Now that Caleb is back and ready to take his rightful place as alpha, Rocco refuses to step down, Rocco has torn the pack apart with abuse and leads by fear and intimidation. The only bright spot in Caleb's life is Ellie, knowing she is his true mate and they will complete their bond after he takes care of ...more

This book felt like it was a wrap up if the entire series, with enough new material for starters of a spin off series! To finally have Caleb's pack issues resolved and his mating with Ellie completed was great. But the book left so many questions. What happens with Aria and Trevan? What is the future for the triplets? How do the Wolfe children fare? There is so much more in the s book, but I hate spoilers. I can't wait to see what Ms. Taiden cooks up next.

One of my all time favourite series, and this book is superb. Great story with love, lust, romance, great laughs & smoking hot sexiness. You do need to read ALL the books in order to get the epic adventure & meet the super characters. I've fallen in love with the Sassy Mates it's just brilliant.

I'm so happy to get this story at last! It was worth the wait first of and left me wondering if we are going to be getting more from each couple or a spin off.. I'll read whatever Milly comes up with next!

Yes! Yes!Yes! Freaking, finally!! Because I've been salivating for the story of Ellie and Caleb for for forever.
This is a late review, that I should have done the minute I got it, but as you all know, Life and work are crazy.
So, Caleb and Ellie. Hot! Capital HOT.
Do yourself a favor and buy this..... I do recommend you start with the first book in the series though, because although It's a good stand alone, you really get a better feel for the characters and the struggle if you start from the

Good shifter romance

This is a good shifter romance, and I was glad to finally get a story for Caleb and Ellie. They had been apart too much, and it was time for the problems with his pack to be resolved.

I did think that Caleb's pack problems were resolved a little too easily, especially since Caleb had been waiting a long time to finally take down his uncle. But I liked the way he had so much support from the other wolf packs and from the vampires.

I liked how Ellie stood up to Caleb, and

A Must Read

Since the very beginning, I have enjoyed reading each story about the Sassy Mates as they fell in love, mated, began their families and fought for what's right. Fighting for her Mate: Ellie and Caleb is the story of the mating of the final Wolfe sibling and the beginning of a new chapter in the Rahound clan. Taiden has combined action, drama, humor and hot sex scenes to produce a must read series. Enjoy!
In order to really get into this one, you have to be caught up on what has gone on with all the others. Caleb didn’t seem alpha enough to lead his pack the way he kept backing down when he should’ve been stepped up and taking over. The guys going their separate way is about the best in order to really see how they lead their own packs.

This is an entertaining read about a couple who has had all kind of challenges an obstacles placed in their way. Their nemesis has had his way for too long, it's time for his mess to come to an end. This is a fun, hot, funny intense read in places. Enjoy I did.

So much happened in this book. So many things came to light that were not known. It wrapped up a lot of details.

What a wonderful way to end a series, or maybe a lead in to another book or two, or a spinoff series or two? Hint, hint! Loved it!

Finally! I have been waiting for Ellie and Caleb's story. I love how fierce Ellie is about her family and her mate. She is a force which I really enjoyed. I also enjoyed Celeb wanting to do right by his pack. Another good book in the Sassy Mates series.
Book Binge
I was really looking forward to Ellie and Caleb's story, but I found myself enjoying this book less than the others. There were just too many other POVs. I would have preferred it if this book was more like the others in that they focused on the POVs of the couple.

by Milly Taiden

I have never enjoyed reading a book so much. The storyline is Magnificent. The dialogue is hilarious, scorching hot and make you laugh so hard that my husband wanted to know what was I reading. Milly Taiden a master at writing. I wanted to tell every reader I know that you just have to read this book. Milly is so creative, talented and entertaining. This is one of the best addition to a series I have read.

Ellie has always loved Caleb, always known he was the one for her. As they get older, she waits for him to take that first step towards a mating but keeps her at a distance.

Caleb, the true alpha of his pack, had his position stolen from him by his Uncle when his Dad died while he was away. His pack has lost their way and he knows a fight is coming. He loves Ellie, has always known she was his, and he needs her safe.

Caleb is fighting the rogues and trying to get his pack away from

It feels like forever since the last book. We've been waiting a long time for Ellie and Caleb's story. I wasn't disappointed! I laughed and cried and got a few surprises! You know...I almost feel bad for Ray...almost. Take someone who doesn't know a thing about babies and throw him in with 3 triplets who can now shift into cubs. Still though he did kidnap them but they literally drove him nuts. I'm thinking mental institution. :) Oh...lets not forget Tristan giving his sons' and son-in-law ...more

Each of the sassy mates books have only swept me more into the story and family that is the Wolfe family and the women that have there hearts now with all the other amazing charterers that she has brought more in it leaves me wanting a lot more.
