No one ever told me that finding your mate was such a pain. Eden is nothing like I expected, and everything I never knew I needed. The more I get to know her, the more conflicted I get. What if my parents were wrong about her? If she really is my mate, then I have not only failed her, I have failed myself, and my entire pack.
I loved the second part of Eden and Paxton's story, which was told from Pax's point of view in Mate. Pax is still feeling the mating pull and is drawn to Eden, despite the fact that he rejected her. He feels her fear, her pain, and he can't let her go. He starts to realize that he and his entire pack have treated her terribly. Can he make this right? Does he want to?
As we learn more about Eden's past through Pax's eyes, I felt so much for our girl. She had a terrible childhood after her parents died and it makes me want her to get her HEA so much more. I also saw Pax through new eyes as well. Maybe he is not such a douche after all - maybe he was young, immature, and subject to the whims of his parents and friends. I wish he had been stronger but the fact that he could change and redeem himself means he is not such a lost cause.
I'm so entranced by this shifter world and Eden and Pax's story. I can't wait for the next instalment.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
