Dammit, just how many toes was she going to have to stomp on before people realized she was a Delicate Freakn’ Flower?
Naomi doesn't want to follow tradition and settle down with a violence-loving, chest thumping shapeshifter. She grew up in a household with five, testosterone laden brothers where none of the dishes ever matched, the ugly-as-sin furniture could withstand any catastrophe, and where crazy glue was bought by the case.
When fate - with a snicker - makes her meet not one, but two mates, Naomi digs her heels in and refuses to do what her wolf - and her body - demands. No way is she voluntarily allowing herself to get hitched to a pair of dumbass - totally hot and muscled-lacrosse players.
Can Ethan, the towering Kodiak bear, and Javier, the sexy, tanned jaguar convince this she-wolf that life with them won’t be all chaos? And can this delicate freakn’ flower unbend her prejudices enough to recognize she needs a pair of men who can handle her thorns - and her passion?
Warning: this is a hot threesome story where all the focus is on her with pleasurable consequences.
Have I been living under a rock all this time? Like, seriously. How have I not read this series before! I am kicking myself but I am playing catch up and I am officially in love with this series.
Naomi doesn’t want a shifter for a mate. At all. In fact, she has it in her head that she is going to date and marry a human because they are safe, boring, and won’t break all her things (like her brother’s and father do). When she’s talked into going to a shifter lacrosse game by her best friend, Francine, she finds she can’t tear her eyes away from two players. And when she her eyes clash with the biggest player on the team Ethan (a Kodiak bear shifter), she sees stars. No, really. She’s beamed in the head by the ball because Ethan missed it because he couldn’t break his hold on their gaze. This is when the books starts getting awesome. Poor Ethan is so upset that he’s hurt her because he’s pretty sure she’s his mate. He even brings her flowers, which she promptly chucks in his face. And when she turns to chew out the snickering jaguar, Javier, behind the hulking bear, she’s floored with the rush of emotions she feels when she looks in his eyes. And then the metaphorical cat and mouse game begins.
Naomi is definitely not an easy woman, or bitch as Francine calls her (she is a wolf after all), to handle. She thinks she knows what she wants and it’s not the two men claiming to both be her mates. But who wouldn’t want to be claimed by these two? I was hoping and wishing they would be real and decide I was theirs. I would be a-ok with that! On one hand, you have Javier. Smooth-talking, panty dropping jaguar shifter. He’s know to be quite the ladies man and even admitted it himself, but after one look at the spitfire, Naomi, and he was a goner. And OMFG Ethan. Where Javier is smooth and suave, Ethan is simple, protective, and a man of few words. And he has such a mushy heart I just about turned to mush myself! Honestly, Javier won me over by the end but I would have been head over heels in love with Ethan from the start. *swoon*
Another thing I loved about this series is Naomi’s family and close friend, Francine. They are this destructive bunch but you can tell from the word go that they are tight and would do anything for each other. I loved the mother too. She’s this tiny slip of a woman and every male in that household is terrified of making her mad. I want to see her kick someone’s ass in a book. It would be hilarious. And we also get to know a few of the brothers more than the others and we can see how protective they are of their sister. I just loved it!
And I just loved this story. I’m quickly coming to realize that any book of Eve’s I have to read at home or I get the “you’re crazy” looks while out in public from laughing out loud. There was this one part where Naomi was making fun of Chris and was playing a tiny violin. I was laughing hysterically and was getting the side eye from my cat. Lol. I cannot wait to read more of this series. They are FREAKIN’ awesome!!
