Mind Mates by Mary Hughes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
While this book is clearly part of a series already in progress, you could probably read it as standalone. Since I took a little bit of a break between books, I had to essentially re-introduce myself to the whole world (which is truly fabulous). This story deals with another shifter/witch couple in the form of Emma and Gabriel.
I loved this story from the start. Who wouldn’t love to read about the geek who is secretly a wizard prince and the tech support worker who is secretly a shifter? They are both completely adorable and they both have oodles of different layers to their personalities. Sure, they can both be timid, but they can also be fierce when the things they love are threatened. In typical paranormal romance fashion, both of them have been pining over one another for a while. Unable to act on it (especially since they work together), it takes Emma being attacked and Gabriel’s sister being kidnapped to force the issue.
Did I mention the chemistry? It’s outstanding! These two practically sizzle off the page. We encounter some typical misunderstandings, but the payoff is totally worth it. There’s a bit of mystery, adventure, prophecy, and lots of surprises along the way. All of this works together to grab you from beginning to end. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
