Falling for His Mate by Katie Reus

Title: Falling for His Mate

Series: Crescent Moon Book #6

Author: Katie Reus

Genre: Romance, Paranormal

Blurb: He screwed up.

Second in command of the O’Shea wolf pack, Andrew Reid screwed up and let Charlotte walk away from him. Now that he’s come to his senses, he’s determined to win her back, no matter how much he has to grovel. Because she’s a woman worth fighting for.

She’s not willing to trust him again.

Charlie thought Andrew was different from other males, that what they shared was real—that their connection was the rare mating pull. But a true mate wouldn’t have ghosted on her the way he did. So no matter what he wants, she’s not playing his games. To capture her heart for good, he’ll have to prove he’s worthy of a second chance. Even if that means he has to give up everything, including his pack.

Favorite quotes: “I want to make it crystal f@#$%ing clear that you’re it for me, Charlie.  I screwed up before.  Big time.  I own it.  And now I’m going to win you back.”

Thoughts: The whole premise of the book is based on the angst between the characters because Charlie thought they had a connection and a mating call between them, but Andrew screws up and ‘ghosts’ on her.  The implication for me from the blurb is that he has done something so horrendous that it needs to grovel for forgiveness from her, and that she is so mad that it will take a lot of effort on his part to mend the bridge between them.  To me that whole premise feel short, so the whole book just kind of fell short for me.  Charlie didn’t seem that angry, Andrew did little groveling, and neither of them had made any promises to the other or even slept together yet.

I liked it, but it would be pretty far down the list of my favorite books by this author.  I am usually pretty satisfied with her novella length books, but in this case I felt like it needed to be longer and develop the characters and their supposed rift a little more.
