The Alpha’s Arranged Mate by Jasmine White

Hello to all!

First for those who wouldn't know it this week saw the release of Wild'sMan Curse by Susannah Sandlin which i reviewed last month Here....i can't recommend you this book enough so if it's not already done please order your copy now!
First it's an excellent story you won't regret and also it could probably enter you in an interesting giveaway later ( keeping it a surprise until  the rafflecopter is done but believe me it's really a cute prize so a good bonus perhaps in addition to a sure good time reading)

But because it's not the day i will post about that special event, i've decided to share with you my opinion on another story but a a paranormal romance that i had in my pile so hapy reading!

Description from goodreads :


Layla has grown up with her pack in a small Highland village and enjoys the relatively peaceful life that she leads there.

However, things take an unexpected turn when it is announced that her rite of ascension is imminent. She is to be mated permanently to the Alpha and there is no choice in the matter.

The Alpha is the arrogant Aidan who has also has no interest in taking a permanent mate but if he declines he will have to abdicate from his role as Alpha and leader of the pack.

Now both Aidan and Layla are going to have make this work somehow and Aidan has no idea just how much of a test this arranged mating is going to be.

Especially when temptation arises and his loyalty to his new mate is tested to the limit...

If you love werewolf romances with steamy mating and lots of adventure then scroll up and start reading this one now!

My opinion:
          I liked this one, it was my first attempt with this author and i could definitively read more even if this story isn’t my favourite.

The universe isn’t too original but it’s well built and i loved how teh author explained the different customs between the different shifters packs/ villages. Layla is a charming character, i loved to see her  discovering herself under a new light when the need arose. She is loyal and determined, very stubborn but also very kind.  I was a little sad to see her cast aside like she was at first. Aidan isn’t bad himself...he is an alpha prince and we do understand him better as the story progresses and we learn from his past.

I guess that i regretted the fact that they both mated before learning to care for each other... i see teh circumstances, i know they were supposed too anyway but i prefer when it’s made by love not anguish or necessity.

 All together it’s a charming ( with a lot of violence^^;;) shifter romance and without cliffhanger which is definitively better ( but i would have loved to see how they were going to make it between their 2 village^^)

Score:  3/5
