Book Review: McQuade The Lone Wolf Takes a Mate book tour + giveaway

McQuade: The Lone Wolf Takes A Mate
by Lynn Richards

McQuade Jenner was a lone wolf.

He didn't need some antiquated idea of one mate for life messing up his perfect bachelor lifestyle. On any given night he could find a biker groupie–human or shifter–reckless enough for a one-time fling with a wolf. He could bed a woman when he felt the need and go home to the solitude he enjoyed. And that's exactly what he'd intended to do the night Rose Spencer walked into his life–alone, wet, and trouble just waiting to happen. He’d never intended to get involved with the innocent Rose–she was a life-time commitment and McQuade didn't do commitment. But what was a wolf protector supposed to do when the woman his wolf wanted was threatened by a low-life lion shifter?

Rose Spencer wasn't the bar-scene type. She'd never have stepped foot inside the shifter bar unless she’d been trying to protect her sister–again. When would she learn that Alice was quite capable of taking care of herself–and that she was the one suddenly in need of protection?
McQuade Jenner is sitting in the Crater Moon Bar looking around for a woman, pretty much any woman to satisfy his sexual frustration with and just when it looks like he'll be going home alone, Rose walks in the bar and he's instantly drawn to her.

We first meet Rose Spencer when she walks into the Crater Moon Bar completely soaking wet and mad as hell. She was supposed to be meeting her older sister there but she's no where to be found and Rose was in a bind with a flat tire and no way to fix it. That is until McQuade offers to help her out.

I knew right away that I wasn't going to like Rose's older sister, Alice. Right away she came across as selfish and uncaring of anyone other than herself. It's funny how two siblings can be so completely opposite and these two sister's certainly are. Where Alice is uncaring and rude, Rose is caring, sweet, innocent and nurturing. Rose put herself through nursing school so she could take care of herself. She might live in a small shack of an apartment with used furniture, houseware and very little money for personal things but she's happy, unlike her older sister who expects everyone else to take care of her.

I really like the fact that Rose isn't a size 1, thin as a stick, super model type. I like seeing more authors making their female characters realistic with some curves.

McQuade first came off seeming like he's a ladies man and then I thought, not only is he a man whore, he's a scary biker dude! But it turns out this shifter is not without his protective, romantic side and we ladies love a sexy alpha who has a softer side to him.

Holy Hot Shifters, Batman! I opened this book and started reading it at 11pm, fully intending to read the first few pages and come back to it the next morning. Two hours later I was reading the last page and grinning because I loved these characters. Their personalities jumped right off the pages and into my heart.

The only thing about this book I didn't like was the use the of the "C" word. I've never liked that word and whenever I see it, I cringe a little. Thankfully that word wasn't used much.

If you like sexy brooding shifters, biker bars, crazy lion shifters and 2 people who are meant to be together even if they are different species, then you'll love this book.

Rose realized she’d made a grave mistake the moment she’d opened the bar’s metal door. Inside were roughly fifty men, and a handful of women. And not one of them was Alice. Why did that not surprise her? She’d probably already found a ride home, having hooked up with some other loser. Who else would she find in a biker bar?

Rose knew how to size up people, especially men. As an emergency room nurse, she’d learned that lesson quickly. Some of the men in the bar were humans but most were shifters. They were all big, bad men. And not in a sexy way. Well, maybe one of them was. The one lounging in a chair toward the back was quite possibly the handsomest man she’d ever seen—a ten in a room full of zeroes. He was smokin’ hot. The quick glance she’d had of his chiseled face and muscular arms had almost made her lose her breath. Everything about him was dark–from his hair and skin to his shirt and jeans. Not to mention the aura surrounding him. He was the epitome of tall, dark and handsome… to say nothing of dangerous.

Immediately her mind went there, wondering how all that testosterone would feel unleashed on her. She wasn’t very experienced but she wouldn’t even mind if he liked it a little rough. The thought of what else he might like sexually had her panties soaked in seconds.
