There were times when I had no clue who was saying what. The book rushes from one scene to another, never exploring anything in depth. There isn't much action, mostly just posturing. The shifter side of things is never really explored. Lucien only turns into a wolf once and immediately goes for a run we don't go with him. The book is a little too obsessed with sex to be a romance. Even by romance standards, the story is very short on plot. Yet, it's just not interesting enough to be erotica. The sex scenes were fairly routine. I'm not sure where that leaves it.
I was by turns bored and annoyed with this book. I generally find cliffhangers irritating and don't buy any more books from any author that includes them. This one wasn't much of a cliffhanger, probably because I really didn't care what happened next. I was just glad I'd reached the end. If it hadn't been so short, I wouldn't have bothered finishing it. Dec 06, B. Love rated it liked it. Lanie came to town to help her brother and his wife with their new triplets she never expected to find out that not only was her brother turned into a werewolf, and that he married one but that they exists at all.
But the love she has for her brothers new family trumps everything else. Till one day she see's Lucien. Lucien is alpha to a neighboring pack and once he spots Lanie he knows right away she is his mate and will stop at nothing to claim her. But he soon realizes that a human woman is a Lanie came to town to help her brother and his wife with their new triplets she never expected to find out that not only was her brother turned into a werewolf, and that he married one but that they exists at all.
But he soon realizes that a human woman is a lot different that a werewolf and he will have to pull out al the stops for Lanie. As Lanie spends more time with Lucien she finds herself falling in love, but she knows that a werewolf won't mate with a human so they have no future. The birth rate of werewolf pups have been declining and finding ones true mate has gotten less and less common so Lanie knows that the right thing to do is to move on without Lucien. But Lucien won't take no for an answer he doesn't care about rules, as far as he is concerned he is the rule maker. As Lucien sets out to claim Lanie others aren't so happy and want to stop them before they even really get started.
This was a pretty good werewolf romance I liked Lanie and Lucien a lot I just wished that we had gotten more of them and their story in this book, especially sense the next book in the series isn't about them. This book sets up other character to come which was nice but with this being a novella that took more away from the main character so I can't decide if that was good or bad. Overall I enjoyed this book it had all I was looking for in a shapeshifter romance, it just would have benefitted more if it was a little longer.

This is a super quick read, no great-shakes but the author doesn't add a lot of filler and just gets down to it. Lanie is staying with her brother and sister-in-law to help with their new-born triplets. She's also discovered and seems to take in stride that her brother is that werewolves are real and her brother was turned and is mated to a shifter.

Jun 02, Chloe rated it liked it Shelves: werewolf. Not much to say on this one. I read this book late in the night and finished it in one sitting, so really it was a easy read.
The hero was a horny,possessive,blunt,alpha and yet I still found him okay.
Lucien's Mate (Soul Mates, #1) (eBook, ePUB)
The heroine wasn't hard to deal with and even though she was kind of passive,she still had a little sass in her that balanced it out. The only thing that I did not like about this story is how fast the romance was. Personally I like my stories to be fast paced not slow ,but this book kinda needed Not much to say on this one. Personally I like my stories to be fast paced not slow ,but this book kinda needed to slow down just a bit.
Rushed romance is why I'm giving this a solid 3. Was it enjoyable? Could it have been better? Oct 12, T. Err, well, it has a nice cover, and an enticing blurb. Unfortunately, this one didn't come up to my expectations hopes. This was a book that told a story, rather than immersing the reader in it by drawing you into the characters with rich description and emotion. I found this a good story, but it didn't pull me in. I finished it last night, and I don't even remember the name of the female lead. Enough said.

Feb 24, Meiwilli rated it it was ok. I read this for the cover alone! On my Were Scale of Hotness- 2 stars. Lucien was hot no doubt but the story was luke-warm and not well written. I can only hope since this is book one in the series that Persaud was warming up and that Book 2 will be better. There is a lot of potential with this series if she can capture it in her story. May 19, Becca rated it did not like it.
No depth, storyline was all over the place. A lot of guessing with what was meant plus really sappy dialog.
Not to mention it's a cliffhanger and it wasn't good enough for me to want to see where it goes. Needs better editing and so much more of an involving storyline. Needless to say I won't be reading anything more from this author. Feb 10, Kelly rated it did not like it. They had chemistry when sex was involved and that was the only good thing in this short book. Jul 15, Aisha Shaikh rated it liked it.
It's an OK novella. It didn't rank high in any of the elements of erotica. It felt like it was whimsical, their love, since they fell in love like, two days after meeting. It just escalated way too fast for my liking. Nice novella Nice quick read. Really enjoyed their story.

Only wished it was a full length story! Would read the next book! Dec 30, Tricia rated it it was ok Shelves: romance , shapeshifters. Not fond of the books where they don't end and you must purchase the next in the series to find out what happens. I feel like I am being forced to purchase the books. Maybe 1. Distracting amounts of errors or maybe the errors were just distractingly obvious, if not necessarily numerous.
Either way, needs a good proofreader. Maybe this is tied into my next complaint If you're going to write a novella, then streamline your story a bit.
This just had way too much cramm Maybe 1. This just had way too much crammed into a small number of pages. Things were brought up, then never mentioned again. Alternatively, just expand it into a full novel. Give yourself the space to develop the characters or plot points that you've brought into this world. Maybe tied to the rushed feeling again? Insta-love is more believable for me with the shifter characters more animalistic natures, maybe?
