Review: Hard Mated (Shifters Unbound, #3.5) by Jennifer Ashley

Hard Mated
Parnormal Romance - Urban Fantasy - Shapeshifters - Erotica

A short novel of the Shifters Unbound series. Spike, a wildcat Shifter and the champion fighter of Shiftertown, is stunned when Myka, the best friend of a dying human woman, announces that Spike has fathered a cub. What's more, the mother is giving the boy to Spike to protect and raise. 

Myka, who'd been raised by an abusive stepfather, is not sure that a wild fighter named Spike is the best man to bring up the cute little jaguar cub. She goes to Shiftertown to check out Spike, and finds that the man behind the name is a lonely Shifter who's lost most of his family and is a fierce caretaker to those he has left. 

Spike is torn between the cub and his duties as tracker to the Shiftertown leader, and begs Myka, the only person who understands, to help him. He starts to like the sassy Myka, a horse trainer who's not afraid of working with animals, even if they're wildcats who turn into humans. 

When Spike's job puts his cub and Myka in danger, Spike is forced to choose between those to whom he's pledged his loyalty and his need to protect the woman and cub he's come to love.




5 Stars ~ Hard Mated (Shifters Unbound #3.5) 
by Jennifer Ashley

I also read Hard Mated as part of the Dark and Dangerous, Six-in-One Hot Paranormal Romances Boxed Set. 

Every since book one Pride Mates I have been waiting for Spikes story. I really wanted him to get a full length book, but Hard Mated turned out wonderful and I’m happy with the novella.  I love the Shifters Unbound series by Jennifer Ashley. She has a way with making you want to have a big tuff loving shifter of your own.

Spike, a wildcat Shifter and the champion fighter of Shiftertown. Will have his world turned upside down by a little human women and son/cub he never new he had.

Myka, who’d been raised by an abusive stepfather will do anything to protect the little cub and make sure that the wild fighter who is his father will be a good fit. 
Both will learn to protect and love each other and the little cub.

Spike is just so darn sexy. I’ll take a tattoo, harley riding, sexy shifter any day. The story is a fun easy romantic read! Myka is perfect for Spike, they complement each other and their love making was hot and sensual. The world that Jennifer Ashley creates is believable and her shifters are more then just animals they are loving caring beings who will do anything for the ones they deem worthy to love. 

If you have not checked out this series yet. I highly recommend you do!

I love all things Shifter!

In some traditions the Jaguar God of the Night was the formidable lord of the underworld.



Terry Spearis one of many authors that writes about shifters. She is also one of my favorites! This month she released Silence of the Wolf "Heart of the Wolf" #13 another great shifter series. Check out my review HERE!

Critical Intelligence had some funny moments to I really enjoyed.  My favorite is the first quote the moment someone learns they are going to be a daddy I had to smile it reminded me of the day our son was born and how my hubby cried and passed out after he was born. ^_^  Check out my review here!



 " Nothing is wrong." Green smiled. "Well, not unless you consider being a father a bad thing."      "Being a father?"       "I'm going to be a ..." Darkness swallowed him whole as he passed out cold. ~ Critical Intelligence by Mandy M…
