Cade by V.A. Dold
Anna James is single again, finally. In her opinion, men are self-centered and will never love her for who she is, a beautiful, plus sized woman. All except the fantasy man that she’s been meeting in her dreams for five years.
She just never expected her fantasy to be a real live alpha shifter...
Cade Le Beau isn't what he seems. He’s a billionaire wolf. A Shifter. He laments his missed chance six months ago to meet his fantasy woman in the flesh. Just as his second chance presents itself, his fantasy woman, his mate, is threatened by the local mob boss and her ex-husband. Now, he has forty eight hours to deal with this threat once and for all or chance losing her again.
Is it Anna who’s in danger, or the humans who unwittingly threaten her?
The heat is on the moment they lay eyes on each other. Neither, age, children, horrid ex-husbands, nor mob bosses will stop this love affair.
NOTE: Complete novel. No cliffhanger. Dual POV. Rated 18+ for language and strong sexual content. This is an adult paranormal romance with erotic content. The series centers on wolf shifters but also includes vampires, voodoo priestess, a Marine, and magic. These are stand alone books that create a series. They do not need to be read in order.
Review by Paulina Woods
I loved the fact that Anna was a bigger than average woman and was pleasantly surprised to find out that she was in her forties. She had lived in a horrible marriage until her children were went away to college and than she filed for a divorce and moved to New Orleans. The last few years of her marriage she had been having dreams about a sexy man and in reality had started a relationship with him.
Cade is so cute. I seriously want him to turn wolf and let me just pet him as he lies at my feet. Ok kinds weird but kinda fun. He has been around for centuries and hasn’t settled down but with the secret help of his parents he finds his mate and she is everything he loves in a woman.
Of course drama comes from Anna’s ex who is mixed up with the mob and is just plain crazy. Cades family is entertaining.
A few things I didn’t like about the book that kept it from being a five: she went from being a confident older bbw to a skinny younger woman. I thought Cade liked his women thick. The conversation became stilted in some places and I wondered if an editor was used in others. Oh and no matter how its done she was cheating while still married.
Not a bad read for a rainy day.
