Description from the publisher:
After years of lusting over Jake Wolfe, Nicole finally got a taste of the dirty-talking bad boy. During the scenting ceremony, he showed her how explosive things can be between them. But Nicole doesn’t do love. She doesn’t even know what love is. So how can she know if a relationship with Jake would be the right path to take?

Jake Wolfe wants Nic more than his next breath. She’s curvy, mouthy and so hot his blood boils just thinking of her. But Nic’s been keeping him at a distance. And Jake is tired of her games. One fateful trip to Sin City and all bets are off.

After a fun night of drinking, Nic wakes up married to Jake and with a second shifter wanting her for himself. She'll have to finally face the feelings she has or shut them out forever. Their newly formed bond will either allow her to open her heart to love or leave Jake without a mate to call his own.

Warning: If you don't like sex of any kind, this is probably not the book for you. There's graphic language (yes, he tells her how he likes it), sassy humor (come on, it's a Milly Taiden story) and women that won't allow a man to browbeat them into doing what they say (unless they're naked). This book is intended for adults that have no problems with dirty sex, humor and action. If that's you, enjoy!


This is the third book in the Sassy Mates series.  They do need to be read in order.

The first time Nicole met Jake, she was visiting her friend Ellie.  She opened the wrong door and there he stood, naked and wet from the shower.  Nic lusts for Jake.  Jake knows that she is his mate, but Nic doesn’t understand how to love and Jake refuses commitment.  Ah, but the social lubricant known as alcohol in the City of Sin leads these two down to the altar.  When you get out of the way of your brain and let the heart lead, wonderful things can happen.  Of course, some not so wonderful things can also happen and they will need to be handled.

Starting at the scenting ceremony once again, we are introduced to more of the personalities of Nicole and Jake.  Their passion is smoking hot.  Finding out about Nic’s family and the type of people they are, certainly does help to put her personality into perspective.  I’m just glad that they hadn’t destroyed the fierce warrior that she is.  She stands up for herself and I was cheering every step of the way.

In each of the previous books, I mentioned a theme.  So, I will try with this one.  In fact, I think there are two:  ‘be true to yourself’ and ‘allow yourself to be happy.’ 

Milly Taiden never fails to deliver sassy, BBW girls and hot, alpha, protective men.  I love this series.  First there was Aric and Jordon.  Then Nathan claimed Karla.  Now Jake has finally gotten his Nicole down the aisle.  Ellie has four brothers.  Three have found and claimed their mates in spectacularly different ways.  I can’t wait to see how Mason corrals his chosen sassy girl!
