Blog Tour ~ Kellen's Tempting Mate by Elle Boon
A NOT SO NAÏVE SHE-WOLF: Laikyn O’Neil has loved Kellen for years. Thinking to prove her love, she sets out to learn how to be a good submissive, only to find herself needing a savior.
THE RELUCTANT ALPHA: When Kellen Styles finds Laikyn in the last place he expected, he rides to her rescue, but then can’t stop his dominant needs from taking over. Sure that he has moved too soon, he backs off to give Laikyn time to come to terms with the fact that they are mates. Instead she leaves, thinking he didn’t want her.
AN UNDENIABLE BOND: Kellen is determined to claim his tempting mate and earn her forgiveness, and nothing and no one will stand in his way. When their world is suddenly rocked off its axis by vampires, fey and more, their pack will have to unite with these strangers in order to defeat the beings that threaten those they love.
What I truly love about this series, is that it is interwoven with the Phantom Force Series and the Mystic Wolves Series. This is the story of Kellen and Laikyn.
Kellen is the alpha of the Iron Wolves pack. He is the one in charge of protecting the pack. But there is one pack member in particular that he wants to be closer to, the feisty, sexy doctor that has his blood boiling and him seeing red, Laikyn.
Laikyn knows that in order to get Kellen out of her system she needs to leave the pack and go back to her home and the practice that she shares with the handys doctor twins. She knows that the one night oh so long ago where she and Kellen hooked up is what she compares all others to, but Kellen has a revolving door of women and she needs to get away from him if she ever wants to be free.
When Laikyn's life is in danger from an unknown force, it will force Kellen into full alpha force and he will have to face the feelings that he has been denying for years, Laikyn is it for him and he will kill anyone that tries to harm his beautiful mate.
I loved the dynamic between Laikyn and Kellen. Both try to dance around the issue until Laikyn is in trouble and then they cannot deny the chemistry, the heat and the passion that they have for each other. Laikyn is worried that she will be nothing more than a notch in Kellen's bedpost and Kellen needs to come clean that there has been nobody since her.
I love that this series overlaps with the other books in the Mystic Wolves and the Phantom Force series. Allowing the worlds to expand and the reader gets to visit their favorite characters from books past. I totally look forward to the next book in this amazing series and cannot wait to see Kellen's sister fall for her mate.
I give this amazing book 5 wolfish stars.
“You would have saved me,” Laikyn said against his lips.
Her faith in him made him feel ten feet tall. “I’ll always protect you. You come first, middle, and last in my world. My every waking breath will be filled with your scent. I need you, Laikyn.”
“We should help Rowan unload the trailer into the barn for the night.” Laikyn nuzzled against his neck.
She fit him. He called her his kitten, and the way she was rubbing up against him, the soft little sighs, he truly thought the name appropriate, even though they were wolves.
“Alright, let’s get it done, so I can make you mine properly.” Kellen opened his door, climbing out with Laikyn in his arms.
“It’s a good thing you’re such a big man, Kellen.” Laikyn wrapped her arms around his neck.
He looked down at her. “Why’s that,” he asked letting her slide down the front of his body.
“You’re always picking me up, and I’m far from a small chick.” She stood on her toes and kissed his beard stubbled chin.
Kellen gripped her ass, bringing her flush with his hard-on. “Thank god for that. I love how you fit against me.”
Banging on the door had him growling. “Damn that Rowan.”
She laughed. “He is probably wanting to get home and practice making babies.”
“Boy needs to figure that shit out,” Kellen mumbled striding to the door.
At the door Rowan and Lyric stood with worried expressions. Rowan held his hand up, ready to knock again. “I know how to make babies. I just enjoy the practice. Tell her we are ready to do the making and its game on. Now, what the fuck happened?”
They spent the next few minutes getting the trailer in the barn, then Kellen ushered the couple into the large log home. After he shared the information Damien had given them, Rowan began to pace.
“How do we protect the entire pack if he decides to pull the same shit on them that he did on you two?”
“Forewarned is forearmed, man. Besides, I can share with everyone at once.” Kellen kept his tone level.
Lyric stood in front of Rowan. “He’s the alpha, remember.”
“So do you send out a call or text?” Humor laced Rowan’s voice, but Kellen saw through to the real worry.
Kellen nodded. “Something like that. I believe a mind-fuck some might call it, but I will do a little love tap first. I hate to bombard everyone at once, however it must be done now. I’m going to give Xan a heads up first.” Kellen gave Laikyn a kiss. “You will have to ignore his snarly attitude.”
“What do you mean?” Laikyn blinked up at him.
“I don’t plan to keep you out, so when I tap on Xan’s mind, he’ll more than likely be snarling back at me. Ignore him.”
Within minutes Kellen and Xan were mind-speaking, luckily he and Breezy weren’t in the process of doing the deed, making the snarling minimal. As Kellen’s second, Xan would help Kellen funnel the information throughout the pack.
“I say we use Rowan and his link with Lyric as well. He’s a strong alpha, not to mention a force to be reckoned with,” Xan suggested.
