not quite perfect mate by Mina Carter
Original take on werewolf genre. Great sci-fi fantasy backdrop to an exciting and well paced story. Likeable H & h. Spoilt for me by cloying over sentimentality in the dialog, sadly common in romance books, which lost the 5 star rating. Also fated mates thing which is not my preference. Excellent narrator. I will be trying the follow on books despite faults.

Confused about the previous low ratings
What did you like best about this story?
The main character and the narrator. I also liked how the author included Shapeshifters, Vampires, and Zombies (re-animates) created by the government as the main basis.
Any additional comments?
I took a chance on this, even though it had low ratings. So glad I did. I have no clue why it was rated so low. The narrator was fantastic and I will be looking for more of her books in the future.

Great read! So interesting
This book is a very interesting turn on the myths we think we know. Mix genetic altering with Werewolves, Vampires and Zombies. Throw in some romance and the evil government, bang you have an intriguing new series!
Smutty fans of Mina Carter may be a touch disappointed, there isn't a lot of smexy steam here. This is more geared towards the Urban Fantasy crowd. Loads of story, building characters and fleshing out a fairly detailed plot. I enjoyed all the intrigue and suspense.
Never fear, there is at least one hawt bedroom scene, but it is more than 75% through the book. So, if you are looking for one of her bedroom reads, this isn't going to work for you! The smexy time is great and plenty detailed, it just isn't the whole point of the book.
This is a mixed narrative, mainly between four characters, giving very different points of view. Most of the time we have Lily and Jack, the leads in this book. They have a great dynamic and I love seeing that sweet Lily has a real backbone! The rest of the time we have Darce and Antonia giving their thoughts. Antonia is a great character and you really see more of what is happening in the facility through her eyes.
I have to say in the book, the ladies owned it! They were seriously kickbutt! I love Lily's sassy snarky comments. Antonia isn't as fun but she makes up for it in attitude! The are a serious handful for their men!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Emily Beresford, who is always a delight. I love her energy throughout the read. She infuses the words with emotion and adds depth to the story. I enjoyed her tone on the men's voices, appreciating that she doesn't take it too far. I hope she stays with the series.
I am beyond thrilled to see this author stepping into audio!! I can not wait for all her books to be released!! I will have some seriously happy ears.
