Chloe Hall has tried every dating website out there and continues to connect with duds. Then her mother signs her up for a new dating—mating—service. Human or shifter, everyone is welcome as long as they’re looking for love and not their next bang. Chloe doesn’t care if her mate roars and sheds or howls and smells like wet dog. He’ll be hers. It’s not until she meets Holt—a massive, muscular, totally gorgeous werecougar—that she realizes she really will become a cat lady, and he absolutely drives her crazy.
Werecougar Holt Moore’s animal is restless and craves things that scare the shit outta him: a mate, cubs, and a white picket fence. It doesn’t seem to remember that cougars are solitary animals in the wild, which also applies to his human half. His cat is too dominant to tolerate other shifters and when he’s on two legs, he towers over every human he meets. He’s big and mean and that’s how he likes it. Then he meets Chloe—curvy, luscious, human Chloe—and realizes he needs to add “possessive” and “biggest asshole on the planet” to his list of traits. Well, not all relationships are smooth sailing.
Chloe has the most interfering family you could possibly imagine. No, I'm not kidding! Meddling siblings, annoying mother, and even apps on her phone designed to follow her every movement! What's a girl to do? Well, there is that dating agency that offers to find you a Mate even if you are not a shifter. So the very human Chloe is determined to check it out and hopefully once and for all get her family off her back.
Holt is a were-cougar who everyone gives a very wide berth. Yep he's not exactly the most friendly shifter around but he and his inner beast have an itch that definitely needs scratching! When his brother sets him up with a dating agency in a meet and greet he's not exactly sold on the idea but what has he got to lose? Well, maybe that's his freedom because just the scent of one luscious human female and Holt is firmly on the hunt!
This was a fun read and I'm still reeling from the outrageous behaviour of Chloe's mother! Dear lord what nerve! Holt is not exactly shy and retiring so be prepared for strong language but that's probably part of his charm. Chloe I loved as she's so brave taking on such a big shifter and has absolute faith he would never hurt her. Naive? Stupid? Some might think so, but I liked her and with that family? Who could blame her for taking a chance and that leads me to say I'm so pleased I took a chance and got Wanting a Mate. Fun, quick, and a happy ending so I'm a very happy reader.
