What I would have liked the heroine to say you knew I was your mate and waited half a year And not only that but you dated two gorgeous women each week while knowing I was your mate Get away from me asshole. My second Marie Mason book I liked this one, but not as much as I did with the first book I ve read of hers Blind Date With A Bear I really enjoyed that one a lot and gave it 5 stars.This one didn t get as good of a rating because the book was shorter I also didn t really understand why Jarod waited 6 months before he finally made a move to claim his mate Even though he wasn t able to be with a woman sexually since he scented Sara it seemed that he still tried to date other women because Sara mentions that no woman lasts than a week with Jarod I m sure he takes the women to dinner and tries to do other date stuff with the intention of getting them into bed, but then he eventually can t because he knows he s got a mate A point against Jarod I was also very disappointed that he didn t even seem to really acknowledge her as his mate or that he was attracted to her except for that first time Yes, I know that Sara does say that she seems Jarod looking at her, but then he manages to shut that down He never really felt protective of her to make sure she ever gets home because he says that all the buses have stopped working So he knows she takes the bus Really He works her so late and he lets her take public transportation home He finally says he ll drive her home because it was snowing so hard, but it finally takes a blizzard for him to do this Another point against Jarod Jarod seemed to be a bit of a was a jerk and I m not sure his mating feeling for Sara is all that strong since he was able to keep his hands off her for 6 months.Of course I ll read the next books in the series I think the brothers seem interesting and maybe one of them will do the McCall name as well as being a wolf finding a mate justice than Jarod has. A blizzard strands a curvy personal assistant with her alpha wolf boss, who isn t as indifferent to her as he seems.I went back and forth about purchasing this book The description piqued my interest, but some of the reviews put me off More than one reader had a serious problem with the hero crossing the line from alpha into just plain mean Believe it or not there is a difference, and it can make or break a story for me I decided to take a chance and see for myself figuring that I could always return the book if I couldn t finish it.Boy am I glad I took a risk.Sara Allen is no doormat She s unsure of herself and uneasy in the situation she s thrust into This is natural Especially since she s entertained romantic fantasies about her boss She can t quite trust that the romantic vibe he s sending a pretty clumsy one, by the way isn t just wishful thinking on her part Sara is quirky and funny She s quick to laugh at herself, but not in a cruel way.Jarod is a pill No doubt He s a little too pleased with himself in general He does seem put out by the fact that his fated mate is something of a Plain Jane There are points where I wished Sara would kick him in the shin and say, Listen, buster, there are plenty of other hot wolves in this fictional universe Go make yourself another pretend billion and leave me alone But isn t that the point of romance fiction Sexual tension Conflict As long as the rough edges resolve themselves satisfactorily, we re fine By the end of this book all of Sara and Jarod s edges are worn smooth.That said, the sex is well done There s great pacing The erotic parts do not overshadow the rest of the book Issues A couple Point of view is omniscient We get inside both Jarod and Sara s heads This provides useful clues to character and motivation, but it can be disorienting at times A third person POV, with the changes marked by chapter or even scene breaks, would have offered a smoother read Also, there are multiple proofing blemishes Not serious grammatical issues These are small but obvious errors that should have been picked up during the final edit In such a short book, they got irritating at times.Overall, though, I enjoyed the story and the characters so much that I m willing to overlook the editing Jarod has a couple of brothers At some point, I d very much like to meet them on the page 2.5 StarsIt was ok Unfortunately just as I thought it was starting to get quite good the story stopped short. Jarod knew the first day Sara applied for a job at his company that she was his mate, but couldn t act on it Now months later, she s his assistant, and has no clue about being his mate When they re stranded together through a snowstorm will things change Can she believe that what she s wanted all along really has some truth to it Quick read, PNR Romance and smutty fluff in a great combo. Spoiler in Review While this story is well written, the hero sucks What in the world kind of alpha wolf shifter scents his mate only to proceed to ignore her for six months while he runs around playing the field I also had a hard time accepting the fact that Sara wasn t bothered enough by Jarod s behavior to look for some type of explanation from him about why he took so long to decide to claim her before just falling into his arms when he finally decides to take her I can understand that Sara was overwhelmed by the powerful, passionate draw of her shifter mate, and I get that she is one of those BBW heroines racked with insecurity and lacking a sense of her own self worth my least favorite type of leading lady However even the most self deprecating of women should question how a wolf could so easily put aside the woman meant to be his while he whores around with other women and struts around in public with them on his arm I wanted her to grow a backbone and make him put just as much effort into gaining her favor as he did into rejecting her I can only hope that Logan and Hunter prove worthy of their mates than Jarod does. |Pdf ♖ Stranded With the Wolf (The McCall Brothers Trilogy, #1) ♂ Who wouldn t want to be stranded with a wolf When the snow started to fall in Chicago, everyone in Sara Allen s office building quickly hurried home Everyone except Sara and her boss, Jarod McCall Why Because her boss was CEO of McCall Holdings and a dominant alpha who made his own rules Even if it meant being stranded until the city shoveled its way out from under a record snowfall As the hours past, Sara becamethan upset with Jarod He d stranded her in a building with little food, a heating system that powered down on the weekends and with him How could she keep her feelings to herself when he kept touching her kissing her loving her Jarod was a big man with big appetites and he wanted his curvy assistant to satisfy them Sara might think he was an inconsiderate jackass, but he knew exactly what he was doing stranding her with a very hungry wolf.
