    I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review. In this book we meet Stephanie Plume and Max Johnson. In this book we learn that Stephanie is from Fate Mountain and has been on mate.com for 5 years hoping to find her mate. This year she just can't be with all the happy mated couples for Christmas and decides it is time to have an adventure of her own. So she set sail on a cruise ship that will take her through the Caribbean. At this same time Max has I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

This year she just can't be with all the happy mated couples for Christmas and decides it is time to have an adventure of her own. So she set sail on a cruise ship that will take her through the Caribbean. At this same time Max has just joined Justice Squad from his time in the military. His time undercover gave him a very specific skill-set that the justice squad need right now. There are pirate attacking boats and stealing both passengers and goods. He thought he would join the cruise in the Bahamas and be able to get intel on the crew or kill the leader. Little did he know they would attack a boat of this size. Max believes he is to broken for a mate. Can these two find the mate they have been searching for all their lives or will the mission be more than they can get past? This is another amazing hit by this author. It does have its ups and downs I really want to tell you about. However I don't want to ruin it for any other reader. I will say this action packed book will have you on the edge of your seat from the first word to the very end. I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    Two words:mate poison If you’re still reading, I’ll share a couple other thoughts: at times the author goes into a lot of detail and then it’s like the story is on fast forward. I also got a little distracted by things like the hero not worrying about TSA after living in villages undercover (not sure how those relate) or that sharks have veins & would swim away after being injured to the point they can’t breathe...

    I can handle a lot of ridiculous, but this one was a bit much for me. There were some good points (the characters were likable and the premise itself of them meeting on an ill-fated cruise was solid) but the action was needlessly absurd in my opinion. There are oysters in the Caribbean. Why is he pulling pearls out of clams when there are oysters right there. Clams hardly ever produce pearls.

    Found Mates I felt the story was to simple. There was no real excitement in the whole idea of pirates taking a cruise ship. The whole book needed more action and drama ! The author did a great job on what was written just left me hanging I wanted more meat in the story not sex but more action

    This was a nice twist on the military romance. I can see this - as difficult as it is for human soldiers to find and keep love, it must be even harder for shifter soldiers to do so. Seriously, finding a fated mate is hard enough for civilians, but for active duty soldiers handling covert ops? Good for Max and Stephanie! They beat the odds!

    Cruising oh Okay it's a adventure lol wonderful. One might say it's the cats meow. A upclose and personal spec op. You definitely want the series and probably the next few.

    This is a quick read with two entertaining characters Stephanie and Max. He believes he is too broken for a mate and while on assignment and find love, danger and passion on a cruise. I enjoyed the background information and look forward to the secondary character's stories. This is a quick read with two entertaining characters Stephanie and Max.

    Needs some more action I enjoyed the stranded on an island storyline. Although it felt like there wasn't a whole lot of actual story. It was a quick read but it felt a little rushed to me. Also not a lot of action which I kind of expect in a shifter book Needs some more action I enjoyed the stranded on an island storyline. Although it felt like there wasn't a whole lot of actual story.

    I had just finished reading a book by T.C. Joyce and This one sounded good so I started reading. I almost couldn't read it because it was no where near as good as the previous book from Joyce. I put it down and waited until the next day to finish it. I try not to compare stories with others and I know how hard it is to write a book. So I gave it a chance. The story was cute, it felt rushed. Like this happens and this happens and then....the flow wasn't there. it did end up being an Okay read. Ch I had just finished reading a book by T.C.

    This is an OK shifter romance, but I did have a few issues with it. It gets 3 stars from me. My main issue with this book is that it is simply too short to have enough character development. It is really more of a short story, not even quite what I would call a novella. The terrible editing bothered me a great deal -- there were so many errors, and they were distracting. I also found it difficult to believe that Stephanie fell for Max so quickly. She was a human, after all, so she wouldn't have f This is an OK shifter romance, but I did have a few issues with it. It gets 3 stars from me. My main issue with this book is that it is simply too short to have enough character development. It is really more of a short story, not even quite what I would call a novella. The terrible editing bothered me a great deal -- there were so many errors, and they were distracting. I also found it difficult to believe that Stephanie fell for Max so quickly. She was a human, after all, so she wouldn't have felt the mate insta-love that Max did. My rating system is below. 1 star -- Hated it, or did not finish. I usually only give this rating if some of the content is truly objectionable to me, like if one of the main characters does something really awful, and gets away with it. 2 stars -- Didn't like it. This rating usually means that I thought the writing wasn't very good, the editing was terrible, I didn't like the characters, or it had other major flaws. 3 stars -- I liked it, but had some minor issues with it. This rating means that there were minor editing issues, the story needed more character development, it was just too unrealistic, or had some other fairly minor issue. The majority of books I read get this rating – I do not consider it a bad rating. 4 stars -- I liked it a lot. This is a high rating for me, and I rarely give a higher one. 5 stars -- I loved it, and will probably read it again. Very few books are good enough to get this rating from me. The ones that do are usually classics.

    Yet another hot little number from the talented Scarlett Grove, this premier of the Justice Squad series continues on with the "mate.com", as shifters seek their fated mates with a little bit of help from technology. In this episode, we have the unique heroine, Stephanie, who is a rare female shifter, trying to accept the fact that it doesn't appear that she will ever find her fated mate. When she decides to hop on a holiday cruise rather than be the fifth wheel to all of her recently mated frie Yet another hot little number from the talented Scarlett Grove, this premier of the Justice Squad series continues on with the "mate.com", as shifters seek their fated mates with a little bit of help from technology. In this episode, we have the unique heroine, Stephanie, who is a rare female shifter, trying to accept the fact that it doesn't appear that she will ever find her fated mate. When she decides to hop on a holiday cruise rather than be the fifth wheel to all of her recently mated friends, never could she have predicted what fate had in store for her. Max has a huge complex, feeling his self-applied pressure that he is not worthy of a mate. After leaving his life as an active soldier, and moving into private special ops, he believes he is doomed to live his live solo. But a little bug put into his ear by his boss has him signing up to mate.com just the same, more out of curiosity and boredom than anything else. But all bets are off when he sees his 100% match. What are the chances that he'll ever find her? Especially when he's on a "hush hush" mission in the middle of nowhere? Fate tends to have fun with her subjects, are these two any different? I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily giving my honest opinion.

    Six years! That's how long Stephanie had waited for a 100% mated on the fated mates dating app. Actually, it was literally a finding your mate site. Most shifters eventually got their match and their happily-ever-after. She'd waited long enough that she didn't think it would happen for her. A female shifter rarely had problems matching up. All her friends had mates and most had babies. She just couldn't spend time watching them celebrate their happy Christmas season while she went home alone. Th Six years!

When he was asked about signing up on the fated mates ap by his JL brothers he didn't' think he was worthy. Why he finally filled it out was a mystery. On to his undercover assignment on a cruise ship. The vacation turned into a disaster. Could they both have met their match only to lose their lives?

Didn't meet any of his team except his boss Hawk. Kindly offered this book by the author but read through KU.
