At the Cake-ily Ever After bakery in Kinship Cove, three sisters are about to meet their matches and prove that a man with a little silver in his hair can make one heck of a mate…if the fates allow it.

No more dating shifters—at least, that’s what I promised myself after the last one met his mate while dating me. He wasn’t the first—fate seemed to enjoy smacking m

As free books go, this was okay.

Coco was fine (awful name, lol). Magnus would have been better if he hadn't basically let us know that he'd slept around so much that he was able to take scenting that Nico was his kid while at a work conference in stride. That was hilarious and probably shouldn't have been.

I think the fact that Coco had no idea Magnus was Nico's dad and the fact that Magnus didn't know he had an adult son until a few months before the book began was supposed to cut down on the

This little gem of a novella has a human baker, the sweetest young woman, incredibly talented in making sweet confections, especially macarons.
Coco, the sweet baker, has been burned by men before. Specifically - shifters. The last one just a couple of months prior to the story's timeline. And it's not even the shifters' fault - they met their fated mates. However, for Coco, being discarded three times in a row in the same way, is just too much.

Enters Magnus, a seasoned in life wolf shifter, who'

Kinship Cove is a quaint little town full of all kinds of shifter and they live in harmony with the humans there. Just ask Coco and her 2 sisters, they've been there all their lives and Coco has had her bad share of relationships with shifter, so much that she has sworn them off for good no more dating a shifter every time their true mate comes along she is left baking her heart out, no more....

this was just too cute. short and sweet and i giggled and laughed all the way through it. great writing style and - a fun read with a sweet hea. normally i don't like giving five stars to such short reads but this was one of those that you pick it up and do not put it down until the last word is read
4 stars

This was a very enjoyable story. I liked Coco and Magnus and liked seeing them get together. I will say that the father/son issue isn't as weird as it seems because Magnus didn't know about his son until a few months before the story begins and they're not close...

Coco is a pastry chef that co-owns a bakery with her 2 sisters. Coco has a good life in general but horrible luck with men. She's dated both humans and shifters but nothing ever works out and all the shifters found their mates w

Reviewed at Shifter Haven

I had such a good time with Coco and Magnus’ romance. Coco has had the absolute worst luck with men, shifters in particular. She should take out an ad that says “Looking for your mate? Let me love you and she’ll pop right up!” Yeah, her previous boyfriends had met their fated mates while dating Coco and she’s done with shifters. Or so she thinks.

Magnus is in town for a wedding. His wolf lead him toward the bakery shop with its enticing scents… his mate’s included. He’s

With its particularly engaging characters and storyline, CANDIED WOLF entertains during every compelling scene. Sometimes a situation is amusing while others are very serious. There are also moments where passion takes over, and the romantic couple is definitely satisfied in the best way possible. I always thought any development came across as believable, which made the book delightfully enjoyable at all times.

The professional side of Coco Chance’s life is going very well, as the bakery owned w

This was a cute, funny, and sexy little novella. I loved the characters, especially Coco's friend Misty. Coco, after having dated three shifters, falling for them, only to have them find their "fated mates," swore she was never, ever dating shifters again. I like that Coco had a bit of a sense of humor about it all. Maybe more of a smidgeon. Her heart did get broken, not once, but three times.😒💔 But then enters Magnus, an older man or shifter, if you will, and Coco was immediately drawn to him. ...more

This is the start of a new series and it was a cute story!!

Coco just needs to finally catch a break in the dating scene!


Coco is tired of dating shifters! Her past 3 boyfriends found their mates while still dating Coco..sure she understands the pull of the Fated Mate but it still emotionally crushing!!
Magnus has been waiting a century of his mate and now he's found her working at a bakery but she is human so Magnus is worried about how she'll understand the "mate" stuff.

2 & 1/2 stars rounded up.
I don't know, this held my attention, I did finish it, but is was definitely a novella.
Being the novella, the background/world building was a bit skimpy. The heroine, CoCo, was alright, nothing special or memorable other than her name. But Magnus, well he was a jerk, he was everything I would run away from in a man. I didn't like him from the start. He did everything wrong with CoCo. Poor CoCo got the raw end of the deal for her story, between the digs her ex made at her

A great fun little coffee time read, especially with all this yummy food being described.
For all that is lacking due to the shortness of this story, world building and a lack of communication, there is so much that redeems it, likeable characters, well written plot that draws you in.
Even though it has the annoyingly stupid plot of not being upfront about being mates, and we obviously have the obligatory misunderstandings happen but it worked well in this story.
I loved the little relationship tw

Terrific, hilarious wolf shifter book

What would you do if you were a century old wolf shifter and find your mate who is human? Why you moved cautiously, of course.

The human has dated shifters before, before they found their faded mates. So she's assume that would happen this time.

The characters are sexy, hilarious, and relatable, that is if they were human characters. The plot she likes him, he likes her, and they have a misunderstanding because he doesn't tell her that she is his faded mate. It

Wow! Did this one hit the mark I loved Coco and Magnus. And even sneaky fox Misty!! Coco had a little bit too much of life throwing a boomer-rang her way in the love department. Magnus was all that! I did appreciate getting a little more explanation to Magnus and his family before the end. Otherwise, I'm not sure that I could have liked Magnus as much.

Misty was perfect looking out for Coco and telling Magnus that he screwed up. While I know that we'll get to see the sisters have their stories,

Coco and Magnus

I sat and started to read this short, sweet book last night until it was done. Couldn’t put it down! Poor Coco’s heart has been stomped on so many times she has all but given up on men, shifters especially, until silver fox Magnus walks into her bakery. But, despite the pull she feels towards him, there are a few things standing in their way, trusting her heart and an ex-boyfriend among them. Don’t want to give anything away so I’ll just stop here and say definitely one-click this

Fun & flirty shifter/ human romance with a dash of sweet macarons. Coco gets her just deserts when meeting Magnus. Its not his fault, he has a pastry puff of a son who happens to be her ex. This was a yummy treat with a light flaky crust and a sweet creamy filling that makes me want to devour more. (Sorry couldn't resist all the puns ;)
This is my first Ellis Leigh story and now I can't wait for the next one!

Good First Story in the Series

Four stars. This first in a series books by this author was a very enjoyable and very short read. I liked the characters, especially Misty. I can't wait to read her story. I gave this book four stars because I would have like more information about the two sisters of the main character Coco and hero of the story Magnus. Otherwise, I think this is a story is perfect for readers who like their shifter love stories sexy, flirty and fun.

When you thought fate was working against you

This book is one of those that catches you in all the right spots. You share Coco’s pain, her want and needs, her humiliation and her love, placing you firmly in her corner. Then you throw in Magnus’ emotions and the ass that is her ex, not to mention her guard fox and it’s a recipe for enjoyment. What a well deserved HEA. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

Hide your dads

I absolutely love a shifter that’s seasoned. Let me tell you that Magus is like a walking McCormick product line! I absolutely loved the story between him and sweet Coco. Girlfriend definitely deserved someone good after what her heart has been through.

Between, Misty & Ginger, I have a tummy ache from laughing so hard. Love, sisterhood, & baked goods made for a delicious story.

Ms. Leigh has shown us her diverse writing skills with this one. I loved her foray into the "fun and flirty" world, with Coco and Magnus' story! They were such great characters and I truly enjoyed watching them reach their HEA! Can't wait for the next one! Highly Recommended!

Candied Wolf: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance

I wish someone had punched her ex in the face, mouth, somewhere so he could shut up. This is one time I wished a mate would reject someone. Magnus was the best thing that happened to Coco, despite the fact that she slept with his son first.
