Review: Guardian’s Mate by Jennifer AshleyGuardian's Mate on September 6, 2016
Genres: Fantasy & Magic, Paranormal, romance
Format: eARC
The New York Times bestselling author of White Tiger returns as primal desire draws two lone shifters into each other’s arms...
She wasn’t ready to lead...

Chosen as the Guardian of her Montana Shiftertown, wolf Shifter Rae Lyall is facing opposition—for no woman has ever been selected for this powerful position. Still adjusting to the new authority thrust upon her, Rae travels to train with Zander Moncrieff, a Shifter healer, tasked with teaching her about her new role and its responsibilities.

He wasn’t ready to love...
A polar bear Shifter, Zander wears no Collar and follows no rules but his own. Rae finds him arrogant and demanding, yet compelling and intriguing. Zander has no wish to mate but the sassy Guardian is drawing him out of his shell, stirring feelings long suppressed. And when a new threat looms over Rae’s home, she and Zander must race to the rescue, forced closer to danger...and to each other.

My Review

I will always love the Shifters Unbound series. This is a ride or die for me and like all the others, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Guardian’s Mate and learning more about the elusive Zander whom we’ve seen in previous installments. I loved the characters in this series. Rae is no wallflower. She knows what she wants and she goes for it.  Watching her and Zander find one another was sweet and heart-melting at times. I will say, Yes I enjoyed the book, though no, it isn’t a favorite of mine in the series. So far, Tiger Magic has been the book to beat for me in this series and Guardian’s Mate wasn’t quit there. Still a great read though and if you’re a fan of the series, you won’t want to miss it!
