Review: Gray Wolf Mate by Dianna Love

Book Description

New York Times Bestseller Dianna Love has created a unique shifter series with immortals, mages, witches and ... sexy badass shifters.

Shifters came out to the public eight years ago and, since then, the world has never been the same for many.

Tess Janver and Cole Cavanaugh fell deeply in love in college ... then he disappeared without a word. She feared the worst, or thought she had. After seven years, he returns as a beefed up version of his former self. That’s not the only thing different. As someone working in a preternatural criminal investigation unit and the daughter of a senator determined to rid the world of dangerous shifters, Tess is caught between performing her duty to humans, protecting the only family she has left and risking her heart to a man who once destroyed it.

Cole had no choice in becoming a Gallize shifter, a secret group of apex predators at the top of the food chain for their kind, and now faces a deadline from a fatal mating curse he can’t stop. The only woman he’s ever loved is human and wouldn’t survive bonding with him. He never planned on Tess finding out he was a wolf shifter, but she’s in danger from a rogue pack. He’s not leaving until she’s safe ... and he has a chance to redeem himself in her eyes before his time is up.

Enjoy a fast-paced, high-action romantic tale. Each book in the series is a stand alone.

My Review 

Cole found out when he was still a teenager that he was a wolf shifter. Now he works for a secret organization to keep people safe. He ended up leaving the only woman he's ever loved but he had plans to go and tell her the truth before his wolf took over and he had to be put down for good. 

Tess has always been a bit strange because of a secret she has. But things really start to go south when Cole leaves her without a backwards glace and shifters come out to the human population that they exist. When her mother is killed by shifters, her whole world changes. 

Cole is running out of time because of the mating curse. If he doesn't find his mate and have her accept him, his wolf will take over for good and he'll have to be put down because his wolf is too dangerous to be let loose. But when he gets held by an organization that wants answers from him that he can't give, he finds that Tess works for them. When he escapes with the help of his teammates he finds out that Tess is in danger from some shifters so he now has to go to her and try to keep her safe. 

This book had the most ridiculously romantic ending and I loved it. Cole's teammates are great and so is their leader. I'm really looking forward to getting to know more of the secondary characters in the next books because there are some really interesting ones. I loved the world building so that we got a good picture of what was going on in this world and the people in it. I'm really looking forward to reading the next book now. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
