Review: Falling for His Mate by Katie Reus

I am guilty of having this review sitting on the computer without a note that said it was done.

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. )
Publisher: KR Press
Release Date:

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.

What’s it About? The premise is simple, Andrew had a quick and intense connection to Charlotte aka Charlie that left him frightened and he ghosted on her. Unfortunately he’s now come to his senses just when Charlie doesn’t want anything to do with him. She thought that what they had was the rare mating pull but when Andrew just up and left her it broke her confidence in him and she’s not willing to give him another chance. But Andrew isn’t going to give up without a fight and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to get her back.

Overall reaction to the story? Falling for His Mate is pretty quick as far as novellas go and usually I’m not a big fan of them but it’s Katie Reus and I’m a really big fan of hers so I don’t pass up a chance to read anything by her. What I enjoy about her novellas is that while they’re short, they don’t leave a reader hanging and they certainly don’t leave a reader feeling short changed.

Andrew and Charlie already had a history together and I was glad of it so that more time could be spent on Andrew fixing what he screwed up out of fear. Bad Andrew! However, he wasn’t a bad guy, er, wolf. In fact, I liked that his feelings for Charlie caused him some doubt. No one likes an overconfident wolf. That bit of insecurity made him a better character and when he came back to win Charlie over he had grown during his absence and became a stronger, more confident wolf.

That doesn’t mean he should have it easy and Charlie certainly made him work for her forgiveness and he really had to work hard to get her to trust him again. I love that about Reus’ heroines, they aren’t pushovers but they aren’t unreasonable either. Because of Andrew’s abandonment, Charlie suffered some doubts about herself and the feelings of others towards her and that balanced out her otherwise tough girl personality. I loved how she still wanted Andrew but at the same time she was hurt, angry, and confused. It allowed her to let Andrew prove himself instead of her just giving in and giving him a second chance. Their romance had to be built again because of Andrew’s foolish choice to run away.

Falling for His Mate is strictly Andrew and Charlie’s story and while there may be one or two additional characters here, the focus stays were it should be, allowing for a complete and satisfying novella length romance.
