Wolf's Mate by Chantal Fernando [REVIEW]

From USA TODAY bestselling author Chantal Fernando comes the latest in her steamy Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series featuring biker bad boys and the strong women who love them.

Vinnie was once the youngest prospect at the infamous Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club but finally, he’s going to be initiated as a full-fledged member! But when Vinnie (now known as Wolf) puts on that WDMC leather for the first time, little does he know what he’s in for. The Wind Dragons have made enemies, and being a member means being on the front lines…

4 Mate Me Stars
Wolf’s Mate is a standalone but is part of the Wind Dragon series. I haven’t read a Chantal Fernando book in ages. I forget how much I love her MC stories. There’s something about them that just gets me hooked from page one. They are pretty easy to read and the storyline is very engaging.

Vinnie is now a member of the club and his assignment is to baby-sit. For seven days he has to watch out for Shayla. I love the storyline! You know fun times are going to happen during those seven days.

Shayla isn’t your typical Heroine, she’s short and Vietnamese, I kind of want to type cast myself because well I’m short and Vietnamese, so you know I was very happy with her. She’s also very laid back and she listens to her Daddy. Her Daddy is in trouble and because of that, she’s in trouble. She’s been hiding out for the past couple months so when she sees her new guard Vinnie, she could care less.

Vinnie doesn’t want to babysit, but if the club asks him to jump, he must do it. He thinks Shayla is a bratty princess and won’t put up with it. He’s pretty tough on her at first and I wanted to scream at him to give her a chance. But he wouldn’t be the hardcore biker Hero if he wasn’t that way.

Vinnie and Shayla have a cute relationship when they try to get to know each other and just make the best of the situation. To my surprise, Wolf’s Mate has little angst and I liked that a lot. As you get more in the thick of the book the MC politics start to arise and you get deeper into who is after Shayla and what threats the MC will face.

I love MC books, there’s something about these reads that take me into another place and journey and that’s the prime reason why I read. I really enjoyed this one and it won’t be my last Chantal Fernando book.

And now Faye’s really screwed. . . . She’s a law student with a future. He’s a criminal with a past. She’s a good girl from a strict family. He’s a bad boy who breaks all the rules. But once Faye straddles the back of Dex’s bike—and experiences the thrill of the open road, the rush of pure adrenaline, and the roar of unbridled lust—there’s no turning back. This good girl and her hot-blooded biker are in for the ride of their lives. . .

Anna is a beautiful Ph.D. student whose older brother is a notorious badass in the Wind Dragons MC. Of course she loves Rake, who’s looked out for her since their troubled childhood. But he’s still protecting her—to the extreme. She can’t make a move without a Wind Dragons motorcycle escort. Potential boyfriends flee, for fear of her ass-kicking sibling. And Rake’s made it clear that his biker brothers are trouble of the worst kind, and strictly off-limits. But one of these tattooed bad boys has already pierced her heart: Arrow, the bearded, darkly brooding rider with the body of a Greek God and eyes that betray a wounded soul. He’s sent to whisk her off campus on his thundering steel stallion. And when Anna wraps her arms around his rock-hard torso, it’s too late for caution: she’ll ride as far as the road takes them—unless Rake stops Arrow in his flight. . . .

The bikers are so sexy, so masculine and assured, they’re hard to resist—especially the gorgeous one called Tracker…
From the moment he meets Lana, Tracker feels the chemistry between them—and it’s highly explosive. A part of him wants to protect this angel on earth from the hell-on-wheels bikers’ world. But another part of him wants to take her in his arms, put her on his bike, and ride off into the sunset together.

And Tracker is definitely worth fighting for…
