McQuade: The Lone Wolf Takes A Mate: McQuade Jenner and Rose Spencer
McQuade Jenner was a lone wolf.
He didn't need some antiquated idea of one mate for life messing up his perfect bachelor lifestyle. On any given night he could find a biker groupie–human or shifter–reckless enough for a one-time fling with a wolf. He could bed a woman when he felt the need and go home to the solitude he enjoyed. And that's exactly what he'd intended to do the night Rose Spencer walked into his life–alone, wet, and trouble just waiting to happen. He’d never intended to get involved with the innocent Rose–she was a life-time commitment and McQuade didn't do commitment. But what was a wolf protector supposed to do when the woman his wolf wanted was threatened by a low-life lion shifter?
Rose Spencer wasn't the bar-scene type. She'd never have stepped foot inside the shifter bar unless she’d been trying to protect her sister–again. When would she learn that Alice was quite capable of taking care of herself–and that she was the one suddenly in need of protection?
So here we go again an insecure BBW female that doesn’t think she deserves a good looking man just because she has some curves. Why can we not have a curvy girl that rocks her curves and loves it? Seriously?! Why not why does almost every bigger female we read about have to be so down on themselves? So basically we have Rose our innocent virgin who has never had a relationship because she's on the bigger side because of course there could never be a guy that likes a girl that rocks her curves.. that just doesn’t exist until she walks into a shifter bar. Then she is the most popular girl in the bar.
McQuade is a bad ass shifter, an enforcer for his pack. He’s not that comfortable with the idea of belonging to something, he’s more of the lone wolf time but he felt it was time to rejoin a pack and the pack he joined is pretty laid back and lets him do himself. He’s out at a bar looking for a “good time” when the innocent Rose walks into the bar and suddenly the tension in the shifter bar is off the chain. Normally that would been fine with McQuade but this time he wants the fair Rose for himself and he’s even willing to battle a bar for her. The sexual tension between Rose and McQuade is hot hot hot! These two have a blazing chemistry but McQuade is determined to avoid Rose and deny that he may be feeling a mating bond with Rose. But when Roses life is in danger he can no longer deny his instinct to protect his mate. Once they stopped fighting the attraction things moved along at a rapid pace. They were in sync with each other and truly seemed compatible. McQuade was sexy and sweet once he got past his growly avoidance phase. I wouldn’t have thrown him out of bed. Rose when she started to not be so hung up on her weight was actually likable. I ended up for the most part enjoying the book. The story itself wasn’t very flushed out but in all fairness it was pretty short. The whole plot line with her sister and the lion shifter was just kind of cut short with no real explanation. I guess it just gave a reason for Rose and McQuade to really get together and then stopped being useful so it came to an abrupt end. I did really enjoy McQuade’s best friend, his name is eluding me right now; but he was funny and kind hearted. If he ever gets a book, I’ll probably read it since I liked him so much.
