You meet your mate in the most unlikely of places. Lars has lost a bet. He either submits to a less dominant wolf or spends a weekend stripping at The Horny Wolf. Guess which he picks.
Sofia has had a crappy day made worse by walking in on her boyfriend screwing someone on her couch. The disrespect hurts more than the indiscretion. Her gal pals drag her to The Horny Wolf to take her mind off of things.
The meeting between Lars and Sofia is surreal and super sexy. The drama and angst are almost t

You never know what the outcome of a bet can be, even more so when its between a couple of brothers who love causing each other the most pain.
From the first chapter I found myself smiling at the antics this fascinating couple find themselves in.
Humans have the innate ability to not trust in what is right in front of them, plus our instincts are almost non existent so when we are faced with the one person who is made for us we often question the simple fact of what we are feeling. Lars finds him

So Good!

Melanie James writes witty and fun books. This one has a menacing ex, a new mate and the hilarity of a man having to act a stripper in a club filled with horny women. Wearing leather chaps and a thing Lars wants to run but refuses to defer to the idiot he made the bet with. So he lumbers on stage to find his mate sitting there! Sofia is a BBW/shifter who just found her now ex with another on her couch, yuck. Dragged out by her friends to a strip club, her first time, she wants the man wh

Sophia is a BBW she wolf who has had nothing but bad relationships, problem is she's never been with a shifter only humans. Could that be the problem? When her wolf who has been kind of dormant, catches a looksie of that very sexy and oh so hot stripper, she rears her head and wakes up. She has stayed away from the pack so long that she doesn't even know what her smart mouthed wolf is talking about! Mate, what is that silly wolf talking about?

Lars never thought that a darn wager would wind him a

Wonderful Story

I just fell in love with this story the more and more I read it. This is the type of story that you can get behind and understand where Sofia is coming from and why she thinks the way she thinks. Once you understand her story you will cry for her wanting to beat men up.

Curvy women are beautiful woman and it's sad that it takes a shifter to help her understand her true beauty. This story also helps us realize this in ourselves to. The everyone is meant for someone.

My favorite part

Enjoyable short read but I was left dissatisfied as it is lacking way too much background.
Sofia really needs to get over her hangups.
What happened to her as a child was horrible but now she is an adult with the ability to deal with crap that happens.
The fact she allowed herself to be used by Sam for two years and doesn’t really know him, shows she was an ostrich. Going through the motions of living.
Liked Lars. He was sweet, protective and caring.
No resolution about her past, does she ever tell L

Lara was on mission his Pack friend bet him to work as a stripper for two nights. The Horney Wolf. He would never be caught dead in a place like this, but a bet was a bet! Lara on the stage to his wandering eyes he sees her his mate. Sofia Martinez. One perfect match and mate.

Mated by nightfall

Cheated on by her boyfriend Sofia just wants a night out with her friends but that became fates way of giving her a mate. In less than 48 hours she's mated, homeless and then kidnapped, what a way to end the week.

Sofia is afraid of getting hurt. Lars is by far definitely not what she's looking for. But, when they come together sparks fly and she will have to come to terms! Loved it! Love all of Melanie's work!

You Bet Your Sass

I wish she had told Lars about the shifter that raped her. Also the so called best friend that blamed her for the assault instead of her brother needs a best down too. I'm glad her wolf took the reigns and claimed Lars or she would would have never done it.

The curvy girl gets her man finally. Has to terminally end things with her ex, but still gets her man, and finds true love.

it was a decent story but the ending didn't fit the pacing of the rest of the story. Be aware that there are non-explicit references to a sexual assault in this story.

One more exciting story. A cheating boyfriend turns into something much worse, and actually finding a true mate can be so complicated. Sorry, no spoilers here.

What a place to meet your mate! Wasn’t sure these two would work out but Barbara Wolf makes things interesting. Definitely an interesting couple.

I loved this book, go read it

A new installment by Melanie James in the Sassy World created by Milly Taiden that also ties into her Black Paw series.
I love the universe that the book takes place in as well as the shifter books and characters I've read in Melanie's books previously. This book meets those expectations and then some. At first i was bit mad when one scene seemed to end in the middle and the next wasn't until two months later but the threads of what happened and what followed was cov

Lars Jakobsen from the Black Paw pact has to make good on the bet he lost to Taavi Olden and be a male stripper at the Horny Wolf in Blue Creek.... Lars is hating life right now! Lol
Sofia Martinez just broke up with her human boyfriend (Sam) after she walked in on him with another woman earlier that day.. but her shifter friends Gabby, Chloe, and Alexa insisted that their "girls night out " becomes a celebration, so they too have come to the Horny Wolf to blow off steam and have a great time.

Lars lost a bet and has to be a stripper for the week-end. The first night his mate is in the crowd. Sofia is having a night out with the girls, not really into it as she caught her boyfriend cheating on her earlier. Lars is drawn to Sofia, her friends arrange a private lap dance for her. Sofia doesn't want a mate. Can Lars change her mind? This is book pulled me in from the first page. Looking for more from Melaine James in this series.

You Bet Your Sass by Melanie James is her third entry in the Sassy Ever After Kindle World.

Lars of the Black Paw Pack is forced, due to losing a bet with fellow Pack-member Taavi, to strip in The Horny Wolf club in the Blue Creek Packs area. He's humiliated, until he scents his mate in the crowd.

Melanie James' stories are known for the humor and snark, and this story is no exception. Imagine, the embarassment of stripping for strangers, and finding your one true mate. A recipe for humorous misad

This was another great addition to the Sassy Kindle world... Lars is just what Sophia needs to let her know she is beautiful and that shifter mates are amazing and nothing to be feared. .. This book was a quick, fun sexy read...

what a fantastic book! Once i started reading, i did not put it down. Sometimes silly bets that some men tend to make can pay off in a big way. Lars and Sofia are two of my favorite shifters to read about so far. He is so strong and perfect to be her protector, and she has just the right amount of sass to keep him on his toes. All in all, this was a fantastic book and i cannot wait to read more!

This is a fun, quick, sexy book. Sophia's carefully crafted world is turned upside down within a day when Lars shimmies into her life. I adore these characters, especially Lars. I loved this book and can't wait to read more in the Black Paw Pack series.

I received a copy of this manuscript from the author, my review has been voluntarily submitted.
