{Paranormal Romance Minute Review} Claiming His Mate (Crescent Moon #2) by Savannah Stuart

Claiming His Mate (Crescent Moon, #2)
She thought the house was empty when she broke in…

When jaguar shifter Lauren Hayes breaks into an alpha’s home to steal back what rightfully belongs to her pride, she doesn’t expect to be tackled by Max McCray, second-in-command of the Kincaid wolf pack. As punishment for her crime the sexy wolf shifter demands that she stay with him for one week. Knowing she’ll start a war between her pride and his pack if she doesn’t, she has no other choice but to agree, even if the thought of being near him 24/7 makes her scared that she won’t be able to hide her growing attraction to him.

Now he has a week to make her his…

Max has waited months to make a move on the sexy jaguar shifter and now that she’s broken shifter rules, he’s not letting her go. He doesn’t care that he’s a wolf and she’s a jaguar, claiming her forever is the only thing that matters. Unfortunately, not everyone likes the idea of him being with a feline shifter. Max is forced to choose sides between Lauren and members of the pack he’s sworn allegiance to in order to protect the woman he knows is his destined mate.

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!

A fast read filled with sexual tension, two shifters who can't keep their thoughts - or their hands - off of each other, a bit of suspense and excitement and a happily ever after. 

I liked both Lauren and Max. As beta Max has his hands full with a busybody pack which Lauren seems to fit in well, I love the idea of the pack as one big family. Though he has his bull headed moments Max is a good guy, protective, honorable and generous with his time and caring. Lauren was sweet and giving but with a fire necessary to stand up to Max. 

I wish there had been a bit more in terms of character development but in only eighty pages Savannah Stuart still managed to pack in quite a bit. Claiming His Mate is book two in the Crescent Moon series but you can definitely start here.
