She’s not looking for a mate…
Sapphire is cursed. Every relationship she’s ever been in has ended poorly. So she’s sworn off relationships and is happy with her life. Until Eli comes along—a one-night stand that turned into two nights. When things got too intense, she did what she always did. She ran.
He’s not letting her get away…
This time Eli isn’t letting Sapphire go without a fight. When her friend needs help escaping an abusive situation, he steps up, no questions asked. It doesn’t matter that Sapphire won’t tell him why she’s holding back from him. He’s a jaguar shifter and cats are very patient—he’ll wait for his mate to come around. But before he can claim her once and for all, they’ll have to deal with an angry bunch of shifters who are out for blood.

This is book 8 in the Crescent Moon series and it features Eli and Sapphire. Eli knows exactly who she is to him. This book is about Sapphire’s journey regarding Eli and her “curse.” It was a little difficult deciding who were the main characters. Was it Eli and Sapphire or was it Luna and Leslie? Regardless, the story was a fantastic, sizzling, action-packed shifter romance. I just wish it were longer.
Story of Sapphire a wolf shifter and Eli a jaguar shifter, he is sure she is his mate. How to tell her that, and it becomes true. A friend needs help she is in a bad pack, and Sapphire needs help.. Eli volunteers and time to spend together.. Cute story . Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion by Net Galley and K R Press.
There is nothing better than one of Katie Reus's shifter mate stories, especially when the hero has to chase the heroine. I LOVE when a hero does the chasing. Another plus is that the heroine only did mild pushing away. She wasn't unreasonable and you don't have to wait long for her to realize Eli was worth the risk.
Key points in this book are: Jealous, possessive and protective hero that never felt like he was over the top with it. Strong heroine who was a great fighter but wasn't too alpha in her personality. The instant mate instinct was believable. An interesting plot that showed how well they worked together. And no outside interference in the relationship.
For a novella, this felt like a full story. I was not left wanting and it it hit every point I wanted to see in a book.
