Claiming His Mate (Crescent Moon, #2) - Savannah Stuart The action starts off with the first sentence and doesn’t stop. By the end of the first chapter I knew a lot about Lauren and had met and started to fall in love with Max. He could “punish” me anytime. ;) This is a fast, fun, and steamy read. There’s a lot packed into this short story. The characters are three dimensional and deep. The story is fast paced but flows nicely. Lauren is a strong and confident woman, but she doesn’t think there can be anything lasting with Max. How can a Jaguar and Wolf have anything permanent? Max has to convince her it’s possible. He is such a hot alpha that can be loving and tender. If you’re looking for action, steamy romance and hot shifters I highly recommend this one. I was very lucky to get a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. Darker Passions
