“I Colton Stokes reject you Harper Kirby as my mate”
When Harper’s fated mate, and future beta of her pack cruelly rejects her on her 18th birthday, before mysteriously changing his mind, she must decide if she is willing to risk her wolf to accept his rejection and truly break the fated bond. It is only when she flees her pack, leaving her family and friends behind, does she think that she is finally safe from the terrible events.
But fate has other ideas, and ten years later Harper finds herself back in her old pack as an Elite Warrior for the Supernatural Council, to investigate the new invading Alpha with a reputation for being stone cold and ruthless. And her former mate, now Beta of the pack, is determined to get her back. Things are only further complicated when she discovers the new Alpha is her second chance mate.
Can Harper investigate her new Alpha mate? And what does the Beta know that makes him so hell bent on taking Harper all for himself? Devastating betrayals and deep rooted secrets that rock Harper’s world and challenge her belief in who she really is, are revealed.
This fated mate’s paranormal romance is a ride from heartbreak to hell to happiness and back again. Harper develops from a naive teenager to a heroine in the book. There are some great antagonist charters you want to strangle and a twisted plot that keeps you hooked. I liked how the author took the story from rejected mates to second-chance mates and added some suspense. There are just enough steamy scenes and some triggering ones as well. However, the author hooked me when she added unexpected paranormals, which became a more significant part of the story than the second chance romance. I enjoyed this read and love Harper’s character and plot line.
Harper just turned 18 and is excited about finding her fated mate. She is a wolf shifter, or werewolf, as they call them in this story. Her mate turns out to be the future Beta of the Midnight Moon Pack, Colton. Wow, this couple gets steamy fast.
What a prick Colton is; I didn’t see that coming. Her world gets very confusing at the end day, and I have to say I don’t like Colton. However, the Alpha and Beta of this pack might be clueless. The story is very interesting, but I did find some spelling oopsy.
We do eventually time jump ten years in the future. Harper is very brave for the choices she finally makes. She has moved up in the world of shifters in that time. However, her new assignment brings her back home to the person who damaged her so much. She is much stronger and more determined than she used to be but still afraid to face her past.
Harper is a badass woman now, but the moon goddess surprised her with a second chance mate, and I wasn’t expecting it to be him. It is nice that we get both points of view but redoing the past event isn’t necessary. The author made it very complicated.
Trust and healing from trauma come into play, but Harper is still in a highly complex situation. As everything goes to hell, this gets more curious, and the author brings in more paranormal characters. This book has a fantasy vibe toward the end as it becomes about more than wolf shifters fated mates and takes on a new paranormal adventure. However, the story itself of Harpers’ mate issues and her finding happiness finally was terrific.
