“I can’t touch you yet. Once I do, it’s over.”

As daughter of the ruling Pack family, Layla Warden is under pressure to settle down. Find a nice wolf mate from a nice wolf family and have nice wolf babies. Layla has other plans, but when you’re a werewolf, biology trumps plans. And when Layla meets Sid, the sex is so intense, so hot, so consuming, it’s more than just a connection. It’s a mating bond.

Sid Rosario wasn’t expecting to find his mate so soon—some wolves never find theirs. Now that he’s found Layla, he’s never letting her go. But lust and desire alone aren’t enough to secure their bond. If they want this incredible happiness to last, there’s one more thing they’ll have to do…

Reluctant Mate was previously published under a different name. It’s a prequel novella to the Cascadia Wolves series. It may be a quick read but it’s jammed back with story and super hot, sexy scenes. Layla finds her mate at the most inconvenient time in her life. She isn’t ready to settle down, isn’t ready to give up her life to be with someone else. Fate has other plans for her when she meets Sid. Their connection is instantaneous and irresistible.

Layla runs off before she can complete the tri-bond. This results into a slippery slope into crazyville. She recognizes her bond to Sid and accepts the tri-bond. The following scene was so steamy it could fog up your windows. I loved it and I’d say it was probably my favorite from the novella. I did enjoy reading Reluctant Mate, it gave me a good feel for what the Cascadia Wolves series is about. It a series that I could see myself reading all the way through.
