Wolf's Mate (Shifter Rogues, #1.5)
Werewolf Declan Reed’s mate is lying to him. Not outright, but a lie by omission is enough to tweak his tail and anger his wolf.  Abby is pregnant and she still hasn’t told him about the baby. He’s given her time, but the moment he gets her alone, he’s going to demand answers.  
 The trick is finding her alone because his mate has been adopted as an honorary sister to the rest of Declan’s Shifter Operations Command—SHOC—team.  That means that when they’re not on a mission, he’s got at least one team member—sometimes more—at his home.
 Thankfully, Declan is a highly trained SHOC agent. If he has to kidnap his own mate to get some privacy, he’ll do what needs to be done.
 ~~This short story is set in the SHIFTER ROGUES world and does not stand alone. It should be read after WOLF'S MATE and is a little bit of family life for those who fell in love with the SHIFTER ROGUES guys and aren’t ready to let them go.~~

    Cute little update on Declan and Abby (and the rest of the team) but, like Abby, I’m still left dreaming of the white dress and the whole nine yards 😉Hopefully Abby will finally get what she wants from Declan (a proposal and a wedding!) in the next one?

    I liked it. This is a short novella that will make little to no sense if you haven't read the main story of Wolf's Mate, which is the first of the Shifter Rogues series. I enjoyed that read (my review is here). If you have you'll love, if you haven't, I would skip this until you've read the first book. For more reviews, visit

    I currently refrain from rating this, since I didn‘t watch out and didn‘t get this was a novella, a sequel to the first book. I think I didn‘t get the characters enough to thoroughly enjoy it. And this is not meant as a stand-alone.

    Man, Declan's teammates are all a little too amped up on the team building thing. By that, I mean, they are WAY involved in Declan and Abby's life. And Abby's undisclosed pregnancy.The undisclosed part isn't Abby's fault, either. It wasn't that she didn't want to tell Declan (and by extension, his team) that she was pregnant, but more than she didn't quite believe it.And maybe--just maybe--if the team gave Declan and Abby some alone time (and if they didn't use that time to practice making babie Man, Declan's teammates are all a little too amped up on the team building thing.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the team interact with the only member with a mate. Ms. Kyle continued their irreverence even as she showed us the love they had for each other. This story is funny and loving. And I can’t wait to see who is next in their happiness. Five Shooting Stars

This book follows on from the first one Wolf's Mate and we get to catch up with the SHOC Team and find out Abby, Declan's mate is pregnant and has the 30 tests to prove it. Abby does not know how to break the news to Declan so she has not told him yet. Abby is not aware that shifters can tell when someone is pregnant by the change in their scent.

    Great follow up story to the original Wolf's Mate about Declan and Abby. Declan trying to get Abby to tell him she is pregnant is serious business to him, but it is all fun and games for his SHOC team members. Declan and Abby can not seem to get time alone, and it is does not seem like that will happen any time soon, but what the team does for them is so sweet, yet annoying as far as Declan is concerned.

This story was a quick, fun read. I can't wait to read the other team members stories! You definitely need to read Wolf's Mate, the first book in the series, to really enjoy this one. I highly recommend you doing so. It's a fabulous read.

    Charming little taleDeclan and Abby have their own home now, built just for them at the shifter compound. Unfortunately they are not getting any alone time as the rest of Declan's team spend every waking hour in his house (despite having their own homes right next to him). Declan thinks the lack of privacy is why Abby has not told him she's pregnant so he halches a plan to get some alone time just him and his mate, no team, or so he thinks. Brilliant.

    OMG! I loved how uber alpha Declan was. The story was a fantastic romp of how your friends are family and you still want to kill your dysfunctional family – with love!! There was one point in the story where Abby internally expressed a wistful desire that I thought was worth following up on. Overall, I was happy with the story.

Which happens to be a huge downer since no one understands personal space or that just maybe 5 minutes without the team around would be appreciated. The entire SHOC gang was fun to read about but I honestly wanted to focus on the couple and had a hard time since most of the book revolved around the team. I would have loved for Declan to stand his ground with his team more. They were over the top needy for men. This is a fun read and is definitely a one-clicker if you have read book two. It is short and can be knocked out rather quickly.
