Excerpt: Mitchell meets Alejandro and Francine
Francine has know Mitchell is her mate since hitting puperty, which is when Mitchell started to dodge when even she came around to see her BFF and his sister Naomi. So while he's been escaping her before he even hit his eyes on her she's grown up and fate has planned her another mate.
On her way to neomi's babyshower her car breakdown and she receives a ride from another guest Alejandro, but pulling into the driveway she faces Mitchell first time in five years and he attacks Alejandro. Seeing a chance to show Mitchell just what he's loosing she and Alejandro cook up a scheme, they'll pretend to date to make Mitchell jealous and see her in a new light.
Of course it complicates matters that womanizing Alejandro is falling head over heels with the feisty redheaded, curvy Francine - sure that he's found his mate in her. So what is Francine to do with her choices when she realizes she wants both.
"Of course, this Francine looked vastly different from the high school one he recalled with pigtails and braces, although she remained just as short. But the rest of her, shit, when had her plumpness turned into curves that gave her an hourglass shape? Since when did she have breasts that strained her blouse, and wild red hair that corkscrewed around her face and brought attention to her full-lipped smile? He’d spent so much time avoiding her, he’d not actually ever seen the grown up version. Not that it changed anything.
The driver slid off the bike, and set the present down before he yanked down the bandanna covering the lower half of his face. He then pulled off his helmet, shaking out shaggy black hair, and even from where he stood shielded by the sheer curtains, Mitchell couldn’t miss the masculine grin he threw Francine. It roused his wolf, who growled with hackles raised. Mitchell didn’t bother to stop and try to figure out what about this guy put his beast on edge –or why—suddenly angry, he just stormed out to confront them.
Stomping down the porch steps, Francine turned his way, delight lighting her expression as she saw him. And damn it all if he didn’t feel an answering tug—in his cock. Totally inappropriate. To ignore her and his reaction, he looked at her companion. The strange dude, who’d pulled off his aviator glasses and tucked them in his pocket, flicked him a disinterested glance before letting his gaze stray downwards to ogle Francine’s jean-clad ass. It made Mitchell, both the man and his beast, growl in annoyance."
Amazing, I'm in love with this series! Jealous and Freakn' started with a bang and kept the momentum going all the way to the end, which is just my kind of book! I like action, be it chases or sexual tension and flirting and this book, whoa boy there was so much sexual tension it was insane. Desire, need, want and not being able to get it, yummy!
She wants him, he wants her, he avoids her, she makes him jealous, he falls in love... oh so yummy! Of course with two guys and one gal the sentence above can be hard to comprehend unless you read the book, to which you'll have a great chance to as there is a giveaway below the review!
Now Francine was just my kind of heroine, a sassy smart mouth with attitude to spare. Refreshingly unique voice with a dirty sense of humor and flirty disposition. Loved her! Feisty little redhead.
Alejandro was gorgeous, easy-going womanizing player with a new girl every night until he meets Francine, who turns out to be a tough cookie to break.
Mitchell was so much fun to read, the man is in serious denial of his feelings, not to mention jealous, crumby and rude but you can't help but to end up liking him, even though he fights not to feel anything for Francine.
And of course there is Naomi and her two mates Ethan and Javier, who were just a joy to read, of course now I'm itching to read their story too (book #1)!
I just have to give this book 5 Stars, anything else would be a lie, I loved it! Paranormal romance doesn't get much better than this! And I think All Romance Books readers agree as Jealous and Freakn' is currently their topseller!
This is for you if... you like your heroines sassy spitfires, your shifter men gorgeous and if you enjoy a book with some steamy seriously hot sexual tension! Not to mention some delicious sex scenes... ;)
