Mate Claimed by Jennifer Ashley

Date Read: January 2015

Genre: PNR, Romance

Collared and controlled, Shifters are outcast from humanity, forced to live in Shiftertowns. But waiting within are passions that no Collar can contain…

As a wildcat Shifter and leader of his Shiftertown, Eric Warden knows his own kind. When he sees Iona Duncan, he realizes that although she appears human, she is a half-Shifter wildcat living without a Collar—and that if she doesn't acknowledge her true nature and her mating hunger, it may kill her…

Iona finds the mysterious and powerful Eric alluring, even though she has vowed never to reveal her Shifter side, lest her mother pay the price for hiding her all these years. But her mating hunger is rising, and with Eric so close, she may not be able to resist…and her desire may lead to the very doom they are fighting to deny…

First Thought when Finished: Mate Claimed by Jennifer Ashley moved the world forward A LOT!

Story Thoughts: Mate Claimed was a game changer. Let’s start with the romance which I thought was strong between Eric/Iona. It was nicely paced and I liked the resistance that Iona gave to Eric. The world change was also strong. There is a lot that goes on in this story and probably will go down as one of my favorites. It is slow, methodical, and very much on point for what is happening. Can’t wait to see where the story goes from here!

Character Thoughts: Oh Eric! I knew I liked him in his sister’s book but now I am a-swooning! He is just all alpha in the perfect kind of way: giving, caring, stubborn, and patience. Iona took a little bit to warm up too but that is only because of my love of Eric. Her decisions really did make total sense given herb background. The side characters were my favorite because of how they played into the world building.

Final Thoughts: Have I mentioned how glad I am that my library had all of these 🙂

  1. I’m just starting this series on audio. I’ma about halfway through Pride Mates and really enjoying so far. I was able to get the library to purchase audios for me (or at least some to start, have to see how the demand is before they will buy me more).

  2. Felicia the entire series has been absolutely cool reading, in fact am hoping to find the newest release which is comprised of two novellas which previously were only available in digital format but which released in MMP last week so hope to find a copy for sale at WalMart and get to read Shifter Mates.

    I agree though that Eric and Iona’s tale was indeed a game changer and my favorite thing about the book other than their relationship was the way this one set up the next book in a way that was intriguing as well as set in my favorite Shifter world location Austin.

    • I finally caught up on all of them about a week ago. Even all the novellas (except for like the weird ones that were 4.6, 4.7). I really have loved how the story is just growing and changing. Rebecca/Walker’s story was a bit of a game changer too. Now I am just waiting for the next one LOL
