    Wow-wee!!!!!!!!! I loved this series ending with Rafes and Myrna's intense yet touching story! Rafe was all Alpha and very controlling which made me not care for his character in the beginning but he learned to bend somewhat for his mate which in ways lead them to being perfect for one another. Also, I was very pleased when Myrna reunited with her brothers and even met the nieces. Did not give away many spoiler but with the fantastic ending of the Brothers Nightwolf, we NOW know that the DRAGONS Wow-wee!!!!!!!!!

    I'll be the first to admit, after reading the prequel, Rafes: Her President Wolf, I was left a little confused with a lot of unanswered questions. Now that I have finished Rafes: Her Fated Mate, questions have been answered and I'm confused no more. Rafes and Myrna were perfect for each other and Ms Taylor has another winner on her hands. Rafes was not the most likable hero but Myrna softened his edges. There's also Wilma's story which was an enjoyable bonus.

    I’m quite disappointed in thisI do enjoy Theodora’s books. I read almost all of the books in her contemporary series and all but two bits in her paranormal series. Some of her books I absolutely love and some I just have a Luke warm reaction to them and others just aren’t that memorable. I think it’s good that Theodora has a variety of works that can appeal to different types of people. With all that said I’m sorely disappointed in this book. My primary problem with it is that half of the book i I’m quite disappointed in thisI do enjoy Theodora’s books. I read almost all of the books in her contemporary series and all but two bits in her paranormal series. Some of her books I absolutely love and some I just have a Luke warm reaction to them and others just aren’t that memorable. I think it’s good that Theodora has a variety of works that can appeal to different types of people. With all that said I’m sorely disappointed in this book. My primary problem with it is that half of the book is told from perspectives that aren’t the main OTP. I find that to be absolutely maddening because having these chapters from other characters breaks up the flow of the story and makes it choppy to read. More so, she uses these sub characters perspectives to fill us in on what’s happening in the main characters story. That was very annoying because in that why can’t the main characters (Rafes and Myrna) tell their own stories. For example (this may be a small spoiler), she has a copy pasted chapter from Knud’s perspective that is highly unnecessary and could easily been written from Myrna’s POV. Or the few chapters from Damianos (which towards the end I started skipping) or one chapter from some random Butler. These POVs aren’t necessary to me and really distracted fro the main story. I also don’t like how sub-characters were used to fill the reader in on (what I would consider) crucial development points in the main characters’ relationship. Another gripe that I have is that I feel that Wilma’s story shouldn’t have been written into this book. I think she should have had her own novella or something because for it took away from the development of Rafes and Myrna’s story. The book is called Rafes so it should primarily feature him and Myrna with few appearances from sub characters here and there but they essentially had to share their story with have the sub characters in this book. I was also disgruntled (spoiler alert) that Wilma essentially told the end of this story and our OTP is never to be heard from again😒. We dint get any incite into how the OTP continues to build their relationship or negotiate around the issues that strained that strained their relationship in the beginning.In reading this I’ve found that these books have a few tropes that slightly irk me. One glaring trope being that the female protagonist always sees running away as the main option to solve problems. It happens in this book. It happens, as they referenced several times in this, in Rafes Sr. and Alisha’s story. It happened in Tiara’s (one the books I haven’t read but this was mentioned in this book). It also happens in Theodora’s contemporary series. The running away trope irks a bit because it yields opposite results of resolving a problem. Also running away tends to be used as a climactic tool to build tension in these stories but in the end such easy resolutions are made which makes the female protagonist running away in the first place pointless. Rather than confront the issue that causes the “tension”, these female characters runaway without explaining why and then buy the end of the book they just forgive their partners.The parts that actually featured Myrna and Rafe’s POV I did actually enjoy which is why I’m so annoyed by the unnecessary chapters in this book. I found myself wishing at points that this story was written over again so it could feature more if the OTP but alas this is what it is. To me it felt like the author want as invested in these characters as if they couldn’t hold up the story on the their own so she filled with other things to fluff it up or to build up to book about other people. Anyway, I had a lot of feelings about this book that I couldn’t not write a review. I’m just disappointed in this.

    So, real quick: Rafes' fated mate is the woman who watched him when he was FOUR, am I getting that right? HORK. Oh, and as a four year old he and his brothers called her "Hot Valkyrie Babysitter"? I've got 4 yo twins and I'm trying to imagine them swaggering around calling people hot ...SDAFGHSDKGJDLKFG;DFLKKSJFLAKDJFSLKDSJF;LAJD;SFLAKSFLKD;SLFK;DASK;LDSKANo.NO.

    :/ Not my favorite. Personally, I wasn't tripping off of Rafes story. I want to hear more on the mob (Luca) end of theodora's world. I think she has a book about Stone coming out soon? The end of Luca & amber had me on the edge of my seat. I want THOSE two books.I read (or attempted to read) her book about dragons last year and couldn't get into it at all. This book had a lot of Dragon aspects within it. I didn't like it. apparently there's going to be another dragon book?When I first read, :/ Not my favorite.

But tbh, a bit distracting at points. I kind of wish Wilma would have had her own novella, because it took away from Rafes & Myrna's overall story.I think that's why I couldn't really connect to this story. I loved Rafes and Myrna as a couple, but there was so much going on, and I don't think you really get to see just THEM like in the other books. And I STILL have no idea what the black box is, or what is going on with the dragons...

    I have to say was did not enjoy reading this one. It just didn't work for me. There were too many stories going on ... Wilma, the dragon, Rafes... it was hard for me to keep up and try to remember who was who from the past books. I wish the book had focused more on just Rafes and Myrna.

    Okay one thing for sure, I was not expecting all that I read to happen. Boy are you guys in for a treat, a real good treat.So lets start from the beginning.In this series I've come to find myself in heavy dislike of Rafe, and even though I was holding onto a little of my breath, for me to like him. I found myself actually changing my opinion of him and liking him. Rafe in the previous book is a big, huge, jerk, who not only control, and rude. But who thinks too highly of himself, and lowly of hi Okay one thing for sure, I was not expecting all that I read to happen. Boy are you guys in for a treat, a real good treat.So lets start from the beginning.In this series I've come to find myself in heavy dislike of Rafe, and even though I was holding onto a little of my breath, for me to like him. I found myself actually changing my opinion of him and liking him. Rafe in the previous book is a big, huge, jerk, who not only control, and rude. But who thinks too highly of himself, and lowly of his brothers, and others. But that is not the case, and their is more too the picture of what we seen of him in the other books. I still think that he's a jerk, and the way he treated his brothers, and his cousins is disrespectful, and rude. But I can see a little bit of why he acted the way he did. BUT this doesn't give him the excuse for what he said and did.Now I absolutely LOVE Myrna, she is the Viking Princess, they call her, and I would not have her any other way. From the way she arrive, and defended her mate, to his family. Jumping down there case that they treat him and actually getting his mom to back down. Now that's what I call a loyal mate, who will stand by you side, and hold you up when you cannot hold yourself up. A real QUEEN. I love the fact that she was not going to back down to his wolf, and even made his wolf see that he's not in control and that he will come to heel, to allow his human self some relief. All I can think is "YOU GO GIRL!"I wouldn't change Myrna for anything and really came to love her character. We need more princesses like her, she will make a fine queen. Now the ONLY thing I have an issue with is the cliffys left at the end of the book. Nooooo why?!?!Fortunately for this cliffy I actually like it, it's like a smooth wine going down your throat. Or a smooth, sweet piece of chocolate melting on your tongue. It leaves you craving a little more, but just enough to pique your interest, and make you wonder, and become even more curious for more.Although I have my suspicions about what could possible happen, esp. considering the fact that the other books gave hints of what could happen. I do look forward to reading the next book.

I'm talking nonstop, chapter after chapter of laughter, excitement, romance and heartbreak. Every chapter was killing me.

I didn't know how I'd feel about him after not liking him too much in the other stories but by the time I finished, I love Loved him. He's sexy as hell in a brooding, stiff way but he's got his reasons. He warmed up though when Myrna literally fell into his life. Now Myrna, she's the definition of "ride or die". From the moment she saw her fated mate, he was hers and she was his. She fought for him. She helped him find himself. She even went so far as to change for him, all at the risk of losing herself. What a romance they found, it was just awesome. Another surprise was Wilma. I'm so glad we got to see what she was about. I loved how her story began. I was rooting for her, and the life she wanted. But in the span of one chapter, I was rooting for someone else. Someone she learned to love and grow with. Rafe and Myrnas journey was rocky yet beautiful, but Wilmas full circle brought a tear to my eyes. This was hilarious, and exciting, sexy and frustrating, and I loved every second of it. This was the last of the triplets stories, but it's far from over and I can't wait to see what happens next. Once again fantastic writing, now I can go back and get my slow reread on.

    four.five starThis book was unique. It was worth the wait. Rafes was a surprise. Always so cold in the previous books but so passionate about everything underneath that icy attitude. He was a big ass but I think it was his way to protect everybody. He needed to be the stronger. For his brothers and especially for his mother. I guess that it's true. "The harder they look, The harder they fall". His love for Myrna was so fierce and in its sort of way genuine. Rafes tried to fight it but how can yo four.five starThis book was unique.

I adored her character. I've seen myself in her in a lot of occasions during the book. The feeling of not being enough, the feeling of not being perfect, based on stupid society standards. I know too well these feelings. They are so strong they can overtake you but I am so happy she's has found a person ready to accept her for who she is. And yes, we need to fight for what we consider important. Never have some regrets about something. Myrna, could have fought more but it's okay because she has understood her mistakes.Last but not least Wilma's story. I always thought Mason and June as my forever Theodora couple but Wilma and Bohdan got me crying like a baby. I'd have prefered reading more about Damianos' plan but this means one thing in Theodora style. His book will be epic. If you have time, you need to read Theodora's books because they celebrate love. Theodora's love has no colour, no race and sometimes no gender and they're so beautiful.

TT did her thing once and now I'm patiently impatiently waiting for Ola's story because I know that one will be awesome as all get it. Ola is no joke lol. I hate the fact the series is coming to an end but hopefully with all the new babies around we'll get their stories too. I mean with love stories like their parents and grandparents have I know they will bring the drama as well.

    I love Theodora Taylor. Seriously. Whether contemporary or paranormal, she always gives us a good story. Loved Myrna immediately, but Rafes? Not so much. So serious and uptight. But when he finally got his mind right and loosened up, he went all in. But Wilma and Bohdan! Absolutely loved their story and how things ended up for them. I never would have thought Wilma had such a history. It made me love her just a little bit more, lol. The whole Colby Kreft storyline was crazy, and very creepy, but I love Theodora Taylor.

I loved seeing Rafes flaws. In Knud's and Nago's story, the reader had an up close and personal view of their issues and Rafes drove me crazy with his perfection and arrogance. It to Myrna to break him and break him and his wolf she did. I truly wish Olafr, Fenris Jr and Myrna could get their parents back in this final installm Thumbs upIn the beginning I was confused.

It held my attention the entire time. There were no lulls in the story. I don't like putting spoilers in my reviews, so you will just have to read it for yourself. You will not be disappointed. Great job, Theodora Taylor!I received an ARC in exhange for an honest review.

    Finally, Rafes story!! :) I very much enjoyed the romance with Rafes and Myrna with a surprise blend of Wilma's first love mixed in there. I really like Myrna as a character. I got Rafes and I enjoyed reading his evolution but Myrna is just a character I really connected with and adored. Good story and strong chemistry between the hero & heroine. The banter is at times fun and other times angsty. I couldn't put it down til I finished.Bring on Damianos and Ola!

    Good storyI liked Rafe the least of the triplets, but he did redeem himself in his story. Myrna proved to be a courageous, stubborn and strong woman. Someone who could stand for to toe with Rafe. Wilma's extended backstory was interesting. I'm not sure I like the direction of Ola's story, so I'll just have to trust the author's process.
