Misguided Motives: Book 2 of Mismatched Mates by Melody Tyden

Rating: 4 out of 5.

It was supposed to be a quiet summer break from college for Abby and Oliver, but a weekend getaway quickly takes an unexpected turn as Oliver is mistaken for someone else. Before long, new secrets from the past come to the surface and they find themselves drawn into a chase for a mysterious artifact that’s connected to them both.

As they delve deeper, they learn that even the best of intentions can have unintended consequences. Whose motives are pure, whose are evil, and whose are simply misguided?

My Review

If you loved the first book Mismatched Mates, you don’t want to miss out on this one more of Abby and Oliver, secrets, action, and adventure. Still, it wouldn’t be a paranormal romance without some fated mates. 

This book begins with Abby being surprised by a sudden trip and last-minute notice. Who wouldn’t want to go to a book conference with their friends? Oliver is sure doing it this time and giving her the best gift ever. 

I love Oliver’s endearing nickname for Abby. This book is from a multiple pov jumping to the characters we need to read from and expanding on them. This story gets steamy right away. Oh, a doppelganger of Oliver. What like the last book, no way is that possible; it can’t be like Liz.

Oh, yikes, that can’t be good. How does Oliver get in trouble so early in this book? Does it have something to do with who Abby saw? 

Who is Elijah? Why do these men want him? What about this book? This story is getting thrilling, with so many unanswered questions and new adventures for Abby and Oliver. 

Omg, I love Storm’s badass character so unique. I wonder what her story is. Interesting we finally get to meet Elijah and learn about him. Still no answers about the book. Ooh, a mate, I wonder who it is? 

The conversations are a bit cryptic and suspenseful, with many mysteries surrounding Eli and the book. Oh, interesting, this isn’t the case of just one doppelganger, but how about two. We know Abby and Liz look alike, and Oliver and Eli apparently do too. I wonder if Eli is mated to Liz, who is a human? 

Interest in that Liz feels the effect of the mate bond. Wow, Oliver and Abby are jet-setting everywhere in this book in their own quest for answers. Elijah is kinda a jerk thin about refusing his mate in search of his book prophecy. You’ll have to read what happens, but this book will surprise you in the end. 

This book contains many characters, lots of secrets and trouble, and of course delightful characters to lure you into a page-turning read. I love how the author incorporated new characters with characters known and love and even including humans. This book is exciting as they search out truths, lies, and mates. I love how the author incorporated action and suspense into this story surprising the reader with a twisted tale. This book couldn’t have been better. It was a fantastic read, and I loved the ending hoping for more of these characters.
