There were many questions unanswered at the end. I would have loved more of this story.

With that being said I did enjoy this book but I didn't love it. I think what annoyed me so much was too of McQuade's push and pull. I fully think he would've moved on from Rose if she hadn't been attacked that final time by the lion shifter so I wasn't sure if I fully believed his turn around feeling for his mate.

I kept hoping that Rose would make him work harder for it. Will have to reread at a later date to see if I still feel this way! May 18, Hannah Bodegon rated it it was amazing Shelves: plus-size-heroine. I think this author technically two authors is underrated. Their writing is very solid, nice flow of dialogue, good plot, with enough steamy scenes peppered in to get the hearts racing.
I give this book a solid 5. Mar 02, Maria rated it liked it Shelves: reread. Re-read: Still like it.

In this work by Lynn Richards the storyline is nothing new, but it's definitely entertaining and HOT and had me breezing through it to reach its satisfying HEA.

This story is basically boy meets girl, boy tries to fight his attraction to girl, and ultimately boy stakes his claim of girl. The boy this time around is a super sexy wolf shifter who's experienced heartbreaking loss in his past which has With so many books written in the paranormal genre it's hard to set yourself apart from the rest. The boy this time around is a super sexy wolf shifter who's experienced heartbreaking loss in his past which has him leery of putting his heart on the line again.
From the moment McQuade rescues the sweet Rose from a dangerous group of shifters in a bar he knows his life will never be the same. He's attracted to her but knows she's not a woman to bed and forget. It's a constant fight against his wolf side who knows Rose is their mate, but it will be the threat from a lion shifter and an unexpected enemy putting her in danger, that finally forces McQuade to put the past behind him.
McQuade is the strong but silent type. He's domineering but in a sexy and caring way that's common for shifters. He oozes sex appeal and his scenes with Rose are full of sexual tension from page one. He's an immensely appealing hero who finally found joy and happiness when around Rose. Rose is the younger sister to the wild and manipulative Alice. Rose is always having to take care of her and her messes which leads to the dangerous situation she's in when McQuade first rescues her. Rose is a very caring individual which leads to her being used repeatedly for financial help.
Rose has sacrificed everything for Alice which has left her with very little to her name with work her only outlet for interacting with others. Her sister's beauty and confidence has also left Rose with low self-esteem and little self-worth. McQuade is the first man to make her feel alive and inspires all sorts of naughty thoughts in the sexually naive Rose's head. She's always trying to handle everything on her own which is admirable but has her butting heads with McQuade repeatedly and puts her in constant danger. Rose is likable but left me frustrated at times by her gullibility in regards to Alice.
She stood up for herself in many other situations but was blind when it came to Alice's verbal and emotional manipulations. Much of the story revolved around Rose and McQuade's burgeoning sexual relationship, which was steamy and entertaining when witnessing the internal battle between man and wolf. The sexual interludes were intense with graphic talk from McQuade.
The scenes were nicely spaced throughout the story and moved at an unhurried pace to amp up the sexual intensity. A small part revolved around a threat to Rose which put her and McQuade in close contact but was wrapped up too quickly and halfheartedly very late in the story. The story's focus was mainly on them but glimpses of the manipulative and petty Alice were depicted sparingly throughout the story though her ending was left hanging. A definite bright spot was McQuade's best friend Briggs who was charming, funny, and outgoing.
He's the exact opposite of the serious and stoic McQuade and I adored him. He's charming and playful and admittedly good with women and I would love for his story to be told as he's an unforgettably sexy beast! From beginning to end this was a well-written and super steamy story that's not groundbreaking but definitely enjoyable.
McQuade: The Lone Wolf Takes A Mate by Lynn Richards
This was my first book by Lynn Richards and won't be my last. Nov 11, Amanda rated it really liked it Shelves: review-copy-provided , erotica , paranormal-urban-fantasy. Why can we not have a curvy girl that rocks her curves and loves it? Why not why does almost every bigger female we read about have to be so down on themselves? So basically we have Rose our innocent virgin who has never had a relationship because shes on the bigger side because of course there could never be a guy that likes a girl that rocks her curves..
Then she is the most popular girl in the bar. McQuade is a bad ass shifter, an enforcer for his pack. The sexual tension between Rose and McQuade is hot hot hot! These two have a blazing chemistry but McQuade is determined to avoid Rose and deny that he may be feeling a mating bond with Rose.
But when Roses life is in danger he can no longer deny his instinct to protect his mate. Once they stopped fighting the attraction things moved along at a rapid pace. They were in sync with each other and truly seemed compatible. McQuade was sexy and sweet once he got past his growly avoidance phase.
Rose when she started to not be so hung up on her weight was actually likable. I ended up for the most part enjoying the book. The whole plot line with her sister and the lion shifter was just kind of cut short with no real explanation. I guess it just gave a reason for Rose and McQuade to really get together and then stopped being useful so it came to an abrupt end. Rating: 3.

McQuade: The Lone Wolf Takes A Mate
Rose is the complete opposite. She let's her older sister walk all over her. Works herself to the bone, doesn't feel that she is in the least bit attractive and was not prepared for the onslaught of lust when she walked into a shifter bar after her car gave out on her. I loved the tension between the two mc's. McQaude is not in the least bit ready to s I received this book in exchange for an honest and fair review.
McQaude is not in the least bit ready to settle down but he has to fight his wolf all the way when it comes to Rose. Rose is absolutely crazy about this man but keeps on thinking that she isn't good enough for him thanks to his ever so thoughtless rebuffs. It is a story that has been done before. We all know the about the girl with image issues and the sexy man that brings her inner beauty out. Both characters were really well rounded and very much immersed in each other. The supporting cast added a colourful feel to the book that would have otherwise left it lacklustre and unimpressive.
