Fated to Mate by Anne Conley

Posted January 19, 2018 by Marsha in Kindle Worlds, Shifter Connected, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Kelli and Chase grew up together and know the rules: when he comes of age, he’s got to choose a shifter to bond with, period. And Kelli’s not a shifter. There isn’t any way around biology. 

But chemistry is something else entirely, and Kelli did the one thing she never thought she could do—move to the city to escape it. Her feelings left her no other choice. It was the only way she could see for Chase to follow his shifter destiny. 

Now, Chase is getting a divorce from the shifter who was supposed to be his bonded mate, and some crazy friend of his Grandma is telling him he can bond with humans. It’s not the way things have always been in their little shifter community, but Geri Wilder keeps telling him they’ve been doing things backward. 

Now that Kelli is back, Chase is angry and confused, seeing the truth of the mistakes they’ve made. However, Kelli is only in town to plan her wedding. 

To someone else. 

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

My Rating:  4 stars

Leave it to Geri Wilder and Chase’s beloved grandmother, two matchmakers at heart, to put two young lovers on the right path to each other… finally.  The community that Chase grew up in has rather out-dated, unrealistic demands on the various shifters who live there.  No alpha but a mayor, fated mated only and never, ever mated with a human.  Which put Chase, a cougar shifter and son of the current mayor, and his love for a very human Kelli in dire straits.  They loved each other as teens, would have bonded long ago except for his father’s dictates that Chase mate with only another shifter.  Kelli eventually gave up and moved away to try to find a life for herself away from the man she’d love forever.  Fate, one feisty grandmother and Geri Wilder had other plans for them.

Fated to Mate is a fun, sexy Shifter Romance where two fated mates are forced to walk away from each other for years, enduring sadness, loneliness and bad romantic choices.  It’s very easy to see the villain in this romance, one stubborn, arrogant, “it’s my way or the highway” father and leader of this community.  It’s equally easy to dislike Chase’s father for all of the above reasons – and his failure to see that his son wasn’t happy and that didn’t matter one bit to him.

Kelli and Chase are good together.  Sexy, still deeply in love and just a bit desperate to find a way back to each other.  Thanks to some matchmaking and an old legend there is a way but first danger has to be faced and choices made.  I enjoyed Fated to Mate and I’ll be looking for the stories of two other young men mentioned in this story.  I’d recommend this one for any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader who enjoys a good story, lively action and steamy, sexy moments.
