Book Review:

A quick, fun and Christmassy read that brings me back into the world of Krystal Shannan’s Vegas Mates.  Tess is ‘royalty’ from one of the leading families in Vegas, but she’s been making her way in New York City, living among humans and enjoying the thrum of the city. Christmas is a time to gather with family in an inn in Utah that caters to shifters of all sorts.

Tess never expected to be attracted to a shifter that wasn’t from her pack, or another wolf, but Patrick is not only a delicious specimen, he happens to be a bear shifter.  The ‘order’ of things are changing since her sister Sam had matched up, and there is a redefinition of shifter society as they adjust to move into the new era.

And of course, the action never stops: the budding romance between Tess and Patrick is fun and well-defined, as neither had expected to find happiness, or the wholesale change that this chance for love may bring to their lives.   Full of heart, some heat and plenty of Christmas spirit, this story is a fun return to check in with the characters of the Vegas Mates series.

Tess Demakis loves the city life. The noise, the lights, the people. Everything about the rush feels like home. The only thing missing is a spark with any of the pack males. After her and her twin sister's twenty-fifth birthday passes, she'd thought for sure one of the handsome men in her aunt's pack might've been meant for her.

- No. Such. Luck. -

Patrick O'Hearn just got back home from a long tour overseas with his SEAL unit. The big grizzly is ready to lie back and enjoy the snowy mountain inn retreat his brother renovated last year, meet his brother's wife and some of her family, enjoy good food, etc. The last thing he ever expected was to find a mate, especially not his sister-in-law.

Now he can't think of anything but unwrapping the gorgeous sassy blonde and making her his forever.

- Best. Christmas. Ever. -

The snuffling sound of a bear outside the crevice made her skin tingle and the fur on her scruff stand on end. Really? Was running away from his kiss not a big enough hint that she needed some space to think things through? She gave a low woof and moved to the entrance of the small cave.The scraping got louder and she tensed as a giant grizzly head poked through the opening and growled.

Oh shit! Oh shit!

The bear’s scent was not Patrick or Scott. In fact, there was no scent of magick at all.
