The Big Alpha in Town by Eve Langlais
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’m fairly certain I’ve been exposed to all 3 of these authors and their sets of books before. Either way, I think that someone who has no experience with them would still enjoy their unique writing styles and levels of quirkiness and smut in different ways. I really enjoyed each of them for different reasons.
The first story is about a group of relatives all receiving cards indicating they may have fathered a child. While one goes on the hunt to discover who the culprit is, he ends up finding his very own mate. Unfortunately, it is not the one who sent the card, but things get so much more complicated than that. The humor and adorably outgoing nature of these characters was completely addictive. I immediately loved the pushy, Greek bear and his pesky habit of breaking in.
The second story is about a playboy who suddenly discovers his mate. Unfortunately she has no tolerance for his playboy past and is firmly in denial about the whole mate thing. Keir, said playboy lion-shifter, is aided, thankfully, by his friends and family in his attempt to woo his reluctant mate. The sizzle between them also makes things a little more difficult to resist. These two ultimately end up with their HEA, and another happily mated couple is helped by technology!
The last story is a follow-up to the story that got us into the middle of nowhere, Idaho. Owen, the second to the newly mated alpha, is brooding at a bar about the odds of finding his own mate in this very small town when she waltzes right onto the stool next to him. Mia is a wood nymph, which is a thing that exists in this world, and he starts planning their life together right away. Of course, the attraction is off the charts so they have some things to do before the wedding and everything. Mia, however, has other plans and was only looking for a baby daddy so she could take the leadership title from her father. While she may have been motivated to do good, it sure comes across as crappy when she sneaks out on Owen. Don’t worry, though, this one has a happy ending for us, too.
