The Alpha Shifter Collection, 15

Unwanted, Sofia Foster only knows pain when it comes to her pack. Considered a freak for her ability to heal, she has become their punching bag. They take their anger out on her, and she can’t leave because the alpha has ordered her to stay.

Caspian is addicted to the scent in the woods, and when he stumbles over a young female being beaten, he cannot just leave her alone. He attacks her pack, and Sofia finds herself free, finally able to live her life in the city.
Only, Caspian will never let Sofia go.

Years of abuse forces her to ignore the mating bond between them, but there is no mistaking the heat, the fire. They are destined to mate, even though someone from her pack lurks nearby.

With the full moon looming, Caspian vows to do everything to protect her, and he takes matters into his own hands. Will Sofia accept him as her mate, or will she continue to be the unwanted wolf?

Be Warned: anal sex

 

Excerpt:

“Would you really stab the man who saved your life?”

She glanced at the knife and quickly put it down on the counter. “What are you doing here?”

“I came to see if you were okay.”

“You’ve been following me?”

Follow sounds like such a stalking kind of word.”

“That is exactly what it is.”

Caspian stepped close to her, trapping her between the counter and his hard body. “Then I guess I have been stalking you.” He groaned as he pressed his face against her body. “And you smell even better than last time. So intoxicating. Freedom is good for you.”

“Why are you here?”

Was he going to take her back? There was no way she’d ever go back there. Not now. Not after she’d tasted the safety of freedom. She would have to fight for it first. Would she be able to kill?

“I came to see you, Sofia. Didn’t you miss me?” he asked. “Haven’t you thought about me once?”

She wanted to deny it, but being a liar wasn’t part of who she was. She wouldn’t do it.

Sofia stayed quiet.

He chuckled. “That’s okay. You don’t have to say the words.” He pressed his body against hers. “Your body does all the talking.”

“How did you get in here?” she asked.

“Your security is no match for a wolf. Also, I learned to pick locks a long time ago. I’m a wolf of many talents.”

“And you learned to invade others’ privacy. I should have known. Why?”

He chuckled. “Don’t pretend you don’t know, Sofia. It’s why your pussy got wet the moment you saw me. Even as you think you should hate me, you cannot deny what you crave.”

“I don’t crave anything but a good book, this lasagna, and a good night’s sleep.”

He tutted. His hand went to her ass, squeezing the flesh. The moan that escaped her lips was not one filled with mortification but one filled with need.

How could she feel this way about this man? It was … wrong.

She didn’t stop him.

The hardness of his cock pressed against her core, and she whimpered. What kind of woman did this?

His lips brushed across her shoulder, and he teased the curve of her neck. “You are so beautiful. I bet none of them even thought to taste the nectar of a sweet virgin, did they?” He sank his teeth right over her pulse, and she gasped.

All it took was a flick of his finger, and the towel that had provided her with any modesty fell to the floor. She tried to pick it up, but Caspian stopped her. His hands wrapped around her wrists, holding her in place.

Sofia was terrified of what he’d think. All of her life, she’d been thrown vile insults about her size. The pack had gloried in hurting her in any way they could. Would he hurt her? She felt sick to her stomach, and then she heard it.

The growl.

“Fuck me, I knew you were beautiful, but I didn’t realize how much.”

She opened her eyes, not realizing she’d closed them.

He wasn’t repulsed. The browns of his eyes seemed to glow a little more as he looked at her, and she was a little taken aback.

Was this even real? Surely, she had to be imagining it. Nothing like this happened to her, but with the way Caspian looked at her, it was like he wanted to eat her up.

His hands went to her face, cupping her cheeks and tilting her head back. “I was going to take this slowly, but I need a little taste.”

She expected him to kiss her, but he suddenly picked her up, startling her as he moved them through her small apartment to her bedroom.

He had her flat on her back, her legs wide, and Sofia stared up at him, not sure what to do as his gaze slowly traveled down her body.

“You were made for fucking and appreciating. Any man who doesn’t is so fucking stupid.” He groaned. His hands were on her knees, and he slowly began to slide them up toward her pussy.

The cover art will mislead you. This is the story of Tia, a witch from a powerful family, that is betrothed to further the family's magic and business connections. Just one issue, she's gay and falling for Alexi. Alex is a jaguar shifter and a madam. It is a one sitting read. Very exciting and fun. You won't want to put it down.

Unwanted Mate is a relatively good story. The characters were well-matched and perfect for each other. The storyline was a little over the top but otherwise quite entertaining. Enjoyed!

Shifter Awesomeness
Written by Claypot2850 on 15th Apr 2022

This was my first read from this series and I easily read it as a standalone. It was a quick read with great chemistry and the alpha growly “mine” aspects I like in my shifter reads. I would have liked a better exploration of Sophia’s abilities but maybe that comes in future books.

Saving the Unwanted
Written by Jan on 15th Apr 2022

Sofia was treated like trash within her pack. Due to her gift, they were forever punishing her. It took an outside pack and a strong wolf to stop it all. There was something special about Caspian, the mating bond. She intended to fight it but Caspian wasn’t about to let his mate go. He knew she was special and would protect what was his. You have to love that ever unwanted soul is drawn to Cas. He brings them peace and freedom. Something none of them had. With Sofia it is Cas that finds peace and love. He can build a family with her and she can rule by his side as the Alpha Queen. It takes a great deal of healing in the heart and head for Sofia to realize what Cas brings to the table. We also find out about her past. It is touching really.

The feeling of freedom
Written by Sydney Neblett on 15th Apr 2022

The land of the lost just got a lot more exciting! I love how the author layered in each new twist to this story! It kept the story fresh and me intrigued until the last page. And the characters were fantastic! Each new person had their story to tell, and the alpha collected them like treasured first editions to enjoy and protect. This book was amazing and original and a fantastic addition to the Alpha Shifter collection! I’m looking forward to reading the next book soon.

Love this series
Written by Rhonda on 6th Apr 2022

A quick read without too much drama, I enjoyed Sofia and Caspian's story. She's unwanted in her pack and wants to leave but the alpha won't let her. The whole pack gangs up on her until Caspian saves her. She is his mate but she's going to fight it after finally getting freedom. I do wish it would have been longer so we could get more information, especially on George. I'd love to see him get a story in the future!

4.0 out of 5 stars Such a naughty bite!
Written by carvanz on 6th Apr 2022

If you like over the top heroes, insta everything, and a virgin heroine, you’re going to love this! I knew exactly what I was getting when I started this and, other than a bit more smexy times than I was expecting, it lived up to all my expectations. It’s been a long time since I read a book that had all the above attributes to it and I was more than ready to dig in. This is definitely what I consider erotic romance. There are all kinds of sexploits taking place with a little story interwoven throughout. The hero is all that you expect of an alpha wolf who has just found his mate, she’s going into mating heat, and it’s a full moon. Add in that there’s a stranger lurking around, and this guy is in full on protection mode. Delicious. This is a fast read and is perfect if you're looking for a little bite of something naughty and over the top.

I received an advanced reader's copy of Unwanted Mate by Sam Crescent from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Overall, I felt this was a solid novel and I found it to be well written. The plot was engaging and the pacing moved swiftly. I enjoyed the main characters’ personalities and liked their chemistry, but do wish there had been more development of the secondary characters. This novel was a bit predictable, but was a quick, fun read.
