The Mobster's Mate by Kiki Clark

Angel says "I'm so excited to read what else is to come in the Silver Oak Pack series!!"

From The Mobster's Mate blurb:

A human mob boss and an injured jaguar shifter brought together by a cruel enemy… and fate.

Caden hasn’t believed in fated mates since he was a cub. He figures it’s more of a fairytale that shifter parents tell their kids than the reality of what passes for mates in some of the packs he’s seen.

But then he comes face-to-face with a human man who smells like orange blossoms and radiates authority and safety.

And Caden… Well, he hasn’t felt safe in a long time.

While the rest of the world fears and reviles Quinten Amato and the things he does under the guise of his business, Caden is drawn to him like a cub to an alpha. He doesn’t care what anyone says or what Quinten does, he and his jaguar know the kind of man he is.

The kind who saved his life.
The kind who comforts him when he wakes up terrified.
The kind whose calm commands set his blood on fire.

Convincing his bossy human they’re meant to be together isn’t going to be easy. Especially not when Quinten’s certain Caden needs things he can’t get from him—and that being a part of Quinten’s life in the shadows is too dangerous.

And he might be right.

Angel's review:

I adore Kiki's writing! She knows how to write fantastic books, with terrific detail, exceptional characters, and she has a phenomenal talent to write and create an overarching plot line that continues so fluently, and so beautifully through each story she tells.

This book was so unique and different from her other books, and yet was full of all the things she's know for! This book really stood out to me primarily because of Quinten's character, him being a human and yet having shifters and witches deferring to him was really unique. I really liked his character, he portrayed himself as harsh, stubborn, and cruel, but he was anything but. Yes, he was cruel to the people who crossed him, but he's also very protective of the people he cares for. Despite him being portrayed as one way, throughout the course of this book, we saw a very different side to him, which I really enjoyed!

Caden's character is such a sweetheart, I was holding my breath the whole time he had that awful collar on him, I was hoping for the best on his behalf! I thought the buildup that occured between Caden and Quinten was done very well, the slow burn was intense, in the best way!

I'm so interested in who was behind Caden getting captured, I want to know the answer to that mystery. But alas, I have to wait to find out. I am very intrigued by Robbie's character, as well as Darius and Nero. I really hope they each get their own book cause I would love to get to see more of them!
