If you love shifters then I can definitely recommend this read. This is a fast paced story which begins with wolf shifter Declan and his lethal colleagues watching a company that is suspected of being a major player in a cruel anti-shifters organisation.
Accountant and cougar shifter Abby, works late every night and Declan cannot take his eyes off her, his wolf is obsessed with the beautiful cougar.
What I loved about it:
Declan was a nut but an ad ...more
Abby has always played it low key and safe after the horrors she experienced as a young shifter, so when she finds herself in the middle of a game of dirty money and danger, she found a ...more
This is my first time reading Celia Kyle and I was completely sucked in by the paranormal tone. I love a good shifter tale and this book sets up what seems to be a very promising series.
Wolf's Mate introduces a group of fierce yet fun shifter soldiers of sorts that are part of the SHOC team. This group of sexy dangerous shifters are on assignment watching the ins and outs of potenrial threats to their kind. While ...more
Too stupid, too light and with too many weak points in plot and characterisation.
Cute romance. Nothing fresh under the moon, but cute. Fluffy, too. (And that undercut the plot in its serious or dangerous aspects.)
Wasn't strong enough to make me care about the sequels, but it had some good points, one being that even if they were mates, it took all the book for them to have sex (95%) and declare their love. Yes, it's still a mate thing, but there is no bond nor mythical ...more
It really is nothing against the storyline because it wasn't half bad. It wasn't the writing in itself either. But first, the characters and their approach rubbed me the wrong way from the beginning and it never let up. ...more
Declan and Abby were so fantastic. They've got the light hearted animosity and chemistry down. I loved the playfulness between Declan and Abby, their fun conversations and flirting. Since they're shifters, there's an added element of their animals liking each other as well while their humans selves fight it ...more
I just couldn't love it. It was ok.
Received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley. ...more
-Good start to new shifter series. Ms. Kyle is one of those authors that I know can bring it when it comes to shifter romances, a special weakness of mine. Some are hits and others, well not so much, but this series definitely has the makings of hit. It has all the elements that I enjoy, good smutty romance mixed with humor and action, so let’s discuss.
- The sitch is right up my alley. Abby Carter is an accountant who likes to dance in the office when no one’s watching (my kind of gal). She also ...more
This book right here!!! If anyone knows me they know how super picky I am when it comes to the paranormal genre. I received this book in the mail and I put it to the side since I was in the middle of another book. Later that night around 11pm I decided to read one chapter since this a new to me author and I wasn’t sure how I would like the story. Several hours later I had to FORCE myself to close this book. I kept playing the one more chapter game but sadly I had to go to the place that pay ...more
I was so thrilled when I saw that Celia Kyle was picked up by one of my favorite publishers. I've really enjoyed the books of hers that I've read. She writes the type of books that I enjoy, I always finding myself laughing at something her characters have done.
So I was so happy to see that she had a new series for me to enjoy. And what a series it is. I can tell by just the first book that I'm going to be loving it ...more
Paranormal romantic suspense on the light side of the genre. 1st in a series.
This is my first book by this author. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the pacing, the dialog and mostly the light-hearted, tongue-in-cheek type humor. I will absolutely read more of this author.
I could list dozens of examples of the humor and funny one liners. The heroine is a cat shifter. A cougar. She scolds her inner cat for not helping by swearing not to go to the pet store for catnip. Hil ...more
I know, I know. Erotica is not my genre. I don't read much of it, and honestly, if it's not Elliot Wake, I usually don't like it very much. But I did read my fair share of fanfiction. And I wrote my fair share of fanfiction.
By god was this godawful. I just didn't like it. I didn't like the romance, I didn't like the main characters (I will say, the side characters--particularly Grant and Birch--were kind of fun, that's what I liked the most), the plot ...more
This is my first Celia Kyle story. I really liked this shifter romance. Im starting to branch out more to other shifter stories besides werewolves, therefore in this one, Abby is a cougar and Declan is a werewolf. It has a lot of suspense and action to the plot which kept the momentum of the story going throughout. ...more
Love Declan. I love how even though his co-workers were like family he went against them for Abby at first. He listened to his inner wolf and protected her. He at first denied that she was his mate thinking it was just an insane attraction but as the wolf reached out to him he found more and more that she was the one for him.
Abby is a cougar that is smart and a survivor. She was working and got into a dangerous situation. One she was determined to expose ...more
I forget how I stumbled upon Celia Kyle’s Grayslake series, but it is a series I truly loved. So when the opportunity came to review the first book in the Shifter Rogues series on audio, I jumped on it. I’ll be honest, I didn’t read up on this series at all. I saw the author’s name and decide to just give it a go. I was also not familiar with this narrator, but more on her later.
So this series is about a group of guys that work for Shifter Operation ...more

She loves her quiet life, but fate has other plans. When Abby uncovers the shady dealings of an anti-shifter organization, she'll have to trust the too-sexy-for-her-peace-of-mind werewolf Declan Reed... or end up six feet under.

I've been saving this up to read for awhile. I had some free time and decided to read it. Its a new series by one of my favorites so I was intrigued. I really enjoyed it. I didnt absolutely love it but I enjoyed it and will be reading more of the series as it gets released. This is different than her usual so dont think this is more of the same. Its not. Its got some darker elements. These are some bad bad boys BUT they are good compared to the baddies. They dont do things ...more
Abby is a cougar shifter that is working as an accountant for a large company. When she starts seeing big discrepancies in the books and the boss acts like it’s nothing, she is determined to ...more
This book was amazingly written and had the best characters interaction and dialogue I have read in a long time. I loved Declan and Abby. They were on fire and even with all the crazy going on, they still had that undeniable CLICK.
This story delivered a heroine I LOVED who really held her won, with an alpha who gave that word true meaning. I couldn't wait to see where the story was going and by the end I was hooked. I want more. Celia Kyle has a way of...more
A classic tale of species racism and fated mates, Wolf's Mate by Celia Kyle kicks off her new Shifters Rogues series with a bang. Abby, a cougar shifter with a tragic past, finds herself embroiled in a battle she wasn't prepared for. She is just an accountant after all. Declan is all about death and destruction, so he was fully prepared for the battle. He was NOT expecting to meet his mate.
The plot had potential. I liked the racist angle about the United Humanity group attempting to kill a ...more

Buddy reading this title as part of a sexy reads book club.
This book is astounding in its scope of debilitating and destructive ideas regarding female sexuality. The wolf dude, Declan, is a predatory, abusive jerk, and what's her face is an unrealistic combination of cringe stupid and horny stupid. Not reading for any literary credence, I was still genuinely surprised at how little character development there was regarding the two ...more
Thoughts: Oh Declan (wolf shifter) you had me the moment you defied orders to go after your mate. I just love a crazy ass alpha male shifter who does not care of the consequences. The slow burn romance was good.
Declan is part of the SHOC (Shifter Operations Command). A group of different shifters enlisted not by choice to help the shifter community. Wow what a group of shifters. Loved that all the secondary characters had their own voice and personality. Play ...more
