Adult Review; Pride Mates
Author; Lauren Ashley
Release Date; January 26th 2010
I really liked this original take on the shifter myth! In the Pride Mate world, shifters have been known for almost 20 years, such as the True Blood idea with vampires coming out of the closet. This book isn’t very big and took me a couple hours to get through but it was an enjoyable ride.
The plot wasn’t complicated, things progressed pretty expectantly but it was still an enjoyable read. I really like Liam, he oozed sex appeal! I just loved the Irish accent I could pretty much hear him purring through the book. Yummmm. I also like Kim . She did get on my nerves a little bit though, I found that she was really hard headed and stubborn, not that I should really talk since I have been told that I have a lot of those qualities, but I have realized that those qualities are annoying to read. I hated that she tried to push Liam away a lot in the book but everyone works out in the end, obviously.
I know a lot of readers had some problems with the how fast the romance progressed and how they feel in love so rapidly, but oddly this didn’t annoy me. I think a lot of romance books are programmed to progress fast, come-on that’s usually the perquisite for a romance novel.
I’m excited for this series! I do believe this is the first in the Shifters Unbound series and the next one stars Liam’s brother, Sean, so I’m excited for the one too! If you guys like shifters, action, and romance, I definitely recommend this one!
