One mistake that could cost him his mate.

Ben is a tiger shifter, from a line of possessive, dominant, and controlling men. They cannot bear for another to touch their woman. He’s never imagined having a woman of his own, but in the most unlikely person, he finds his mate.

Heather has known about shifters, and she’s best friends with a leopard shifter. On the night of a barbeque she gets a shock of a lifetime. She’s the destined mate to Ben, the guy her best friend wants so desperately. What can Heather do but refuse, for her friend’s sake?

Emotions are running high, and Ben attacks Heather when he loses control. Afterward, there’s nothing he can do but wait it out. How can Heather fall in love with the man who scarred her? Against all the odds and with time, Ben hopes to recapture what he’s lost. Without his mate, there is no future for him. But can Heather be strong enough to love him? And would her friend ever forgive her for walking away?



This was a new author for me and I had a hard time getting to this book for one simple reason: Ben attacked Heather and she almost died. My problem was the fact not a single person did a thing to him, it was like it can’t be helped. I’m not in favor of this and they are shifters but that’s not an excuse for slapping a person. Ben is actually a good guy, but I condone what he did and just because she was his mate everybody treated like it was no big deal.

They are great together, but I just can’t pass the fact he hurt her real bad on the first time she said no to him. So I don’t think this series is okay to continue for me. The author I’ll give a second chance.
