Cats and dogs don’t mix or do they? Lucy Corwyn is a Bobcat Shifter and Derrick Rand is an Alpha Dire Wolf and fate has declared them mates. But Lucy isn’t going down without a fight. Lucy is sweet and sassy and nobody’s fool. Derrick is hot and Alpha and a bit used to getting his way. I loved this steamy tale and look forward to future installments.

They are ready to settle and find their mates. Lucy, a bobcat shifter, has no place to call home. Stranded in Blue Creek, could be luck or fate. If she can accept Derrick as her mate. With a wall around her heart, he will need to be patient. Derrick and Lucy work wonderfully together. He can handle any 'Sass' she brings with extreme c ...more

Shake That Sass
Derrick and Lucy
He is an alpha Dire Wolf shifter, a prehistoric type of wolf, (extinct except for shifters), he brought his nomad pack to a small town called Blue Creek.
She is a Bobcat without anyone, on the move from a young age.
Until her car breaks down in Blue Creek.....must have been fated.
As soon as they see each other, they KNOW that they are fated mates!

If you are a fan of C.D. Gorri, pick this one up!

Received this ARC and am leaving an honest review.

Shake That Sass is the first book in the Dire Wolf Mates series & set in the Sassy Ever After universe. In it we meet dire wolf shifter Derrick & bobcat shifter Lucy & follow them on their road to happily ever after.

Derrick is the alpha of his pack of dire wolf shifters. Tired of the nomadic life of his kind, he & his pack hope they've finally found a home in Blue Creek. And just maybe they'll find their mates there, too.

Lucy is a bobcat shifter. On her own with no place to call home she's passi

I had the great pleasure of reading Foster by CD Gorri and let me tell you it’s a must read, if you live shifter books!! It’s the beginning ( hope so anyway) of a new shifter series with ancient wolfs. This one had an feline fated mate. I’m holding my breath to see what happens next with this group of ancient wolf pack!

Beautiful and Full of Sass

Have to admit Lucy is now a favorite character of mine. She just knows what she wants and she goes out and gets it. She has no problem putting Derrick in his place to do it either. These two are just perfect for each other. Head strong and stubborn.

You find yourself getting lost in the pages. So many times you find yourself laughing at something that Lucy will say. But don't fret this book will give you lots of steam and hunky actions, just wait.

Can't wait to read more

Overall rating: 4.7

A very uplifting and delightful shifter tale with fated mates from different species. Very much chocked full of mature content guaranteed to sizzle off the pages. This reads very quickly, so it’s excellent for a quick shot of steam! would love to see some of the tattooed described. All my reviews are always voluntarily written.

What a fantastic new series. Awesome characters and a fast paced storyline. A little drama, some danger and a pair of fated mates.

This is the 4th book I've read written by C.D. Gorri; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Refreshing, playful, funny, sexy, hot, sass, breathtaking, perfect, explosive.
A beautifully written book that took my breath away several times. Derrick and Lucy made an amazing couple.
This is how I imagine a paranormal romance where there's love, tension, fun, romance, lovemaking and brilliantly written lead characters. I'm looking forward to continuing.

REVIEW
I have a feeling these Dire Wolves are going to be giving us tons of excitement in the future.
Lucy has gotten as far as she could thanks to her clunker and has to work to get money to fix it. What she hadn't planned on was the Alpha taking notice.
Derrick knows the minute she steps into his office who and what she is.
He won't push her though. He kn

Cute quick read. Typical insta-lust with fated mates. Lucy has trust issues from her mom’s many relationships. Derrick has been longing for his mate.

Relatively low angst for them to get their HEA.

I absolutely adored Lucy and Derick’s story. Two wondering souls looking for a place to call home find it in each other. And the ending was a super sassy treat! I can’t wait for more books in this series!

Fated mates

If you like reading shifter stories, then you will enjoy this book.

Derrick is an Alpha Dire Wolf, a rare, powerful species of shifter. They are larger and faster than the normal shifter. In wolf form, they are about 7 feet tall and several hundred pounds bigger than a regular wolf.

Derrick's pack has been nomads for years. Stopping on their Harleys to eat and sleep, but never finding a place to call home. After getting an email from another wolf inviting him to come Blue Creek, a smal

Blue Creek will never be the same
I love this author’s induction into the Sassy Ever After world. Not only does she bring us a lonely kitty full of sass, but she brings us 7 dire wolves ready to settle down and find their mates. (Hopefully that means 6 more stories) I truly enjoy the way this author slowly builds the story while introducing us to the characters, it makes them seem so real and invests us in their future. Especially with Lucy, that is one sassy kitty who is going to keep Derrick o

Having a good feeling about the area, Dire wolf alpha Derrick Rand and his pack are just settling into their new business and home in a shifter town. Lone bobcat Lucy Corwyn’s junker broke down between nowhere and nowhere else. With $17 to her name, Lucy has to find a job in town but as luck would have it, she’s stranded in a wolf town!

One look was all it took. Lucy and Damien find themselves with everything they ever wanted. As the bar opens a few locals become aware just how many shifters live

Goodness!

This book was awesome sauce! I loved it! Looks like Derrick met his match with his lil kitten! This book was so cute and had so many tender moments. Derrick had no issues showing his tender side in front of his pack/family. I loved that. He was quick to show Lucy how much she meant to him. That ending was also hilarious! Looking forward to Sheilas story and the rest of the MC! So much goodness to come!
