It was meant to be a fake date. Instead, he found his real mate.

Bear shifter Rory reluctantly agrees to be the fake date for a friend of a friend. It’s one night. One night when he can forget how lonely he is. One night where he can dance with a woman and have fun.

Or at least pretend to have fun, since fun is not his thing. Not when his heart yearns for the woman of his dreams.

His mate.

Then he meets Danni and immediately realizes she is the real thing. Can Rory persuade Danni to give love one more chance?

Danni is off men…for life. She is not going to get burned again.

However, when her fake date arrives, she has to admit there is nothing fake about the way he makes her feel.


Rory is only dating her as a favor. She is not going to fool herself into thinking it’s anything more.

Can Rory convince Danni to take a chance on love?

My Rating:  4.5 stars

‘Fake Date Mate’ is a quick, fun romance that proves that love or your mate can be found when you least expect it — even on a blind, fake date.

I had fun with Rory who after years of waiting finally finds his mate in a most unusual situation and Danni who after being cheated and played by the man she loved vows to never, ever give her heart again.  Watching Rory slowly winning over Danni was a delightful journey.

While I rarely mention additions I would have loved to see in a story – for it wasn’t my story to write – I really wish we had been witness to Brice getting exactly what he so richly deserved.  Yeah, it’s implied but I guess I’m just a revenge-minded reader when someone pulls that kinda crap.

I like the idea of quick, fun romances that can be picked up and read whenever, so I’m definitely going to be keeping an eye out for the next story in ‘The Single Shift’ series.  If you love Shifter Romance then check this one out, I’m betting you’ll have a very good time.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
