By Lia Davis

Blurb:
For tiger-shifter, Samira Anderson, leaving home for the first time to attend Harmony University should unnerve her. She’s never submitted to the fear of a challenge and doesn’t plan to start now. Meeting her dorm mates and touring the campus excites her and her cat. Although when she meets Gavin Stone, she’s not only nervous around him but fears she might lose the tight control she has over her tiger.

After a bad break up with his high school sweetheart, Gavin has no intentions of repeating past mistakes. Or so he thought until he sees the beautiful, smart, Samira at the dorm welcome party. Drawn to her like no other, he can’t stay away or shake the feeling Sam isn’t telling him everything.

When he discovers her secrets, a whole new world opens to him, filled with danger, unknown possibilities, and a passion so intense it could last many lifetimes.

MY REVIEW

This is the first book in the Harmony Spring series.  It’s a good start to what appears to be an interesting series. Imperfect Mate, although short is an interesting and exciting read.

It tells the story of Samira Anderson, who is a tiger shifter.  Samira is leaving home for the first time in her life to attend college. While in college, she encounters not only humans, but other species of shifters. Of all these species only one would be of importance to her.

Gavin Stone is a human who is not aware that shifters exist until he met his sister’s mate. When he first lays eyes on Samira, he knew his life would never be the same.  Little did he know the degree of change and the effect it would have on him.

Imperfect Mate is a fast paced read that is filled with suspense, romance and humor. It is the kind of story that will have you turning the pages as you will be eager to see what next will happen.
If you love shifter romance and you are looking for a quick and easy read, then Imferfect Mate is the perfect read.





Excerpt


She swallowed and nodded. Words were so hard to form when she stared into his chocolate gaze. He took a step forward, closing the small distance between them, and her heartbeat quickened, her palms dampened.

He lifted his hand and brushed stray hairs from her face. Her skin tingled where his fingertips touched. “You have beautiful eyes.”

Crap. She lowered her eyes, afraid they’d gone cat. Her senses were too alive, too hypersensitive to him. She needed to leave but couldn’t go back to the party, and she damn sure couldn’t go to Dev.

“Did I say something to upset you?”

Returning her attention to Gavin, she offered him a forced smile. “We’ve reached the stream.”

Glancing to the side, he nodded and tugged her toward it. “I can’t swim, but I love the sound of water.”

She relaxed at his confession and took off her shoes. Sitting on the edge of the bank, she slipped her feet into the icy water. “Oh, it’s cold. Put your feet in.”

Shaking his head, he sat next to her while folding his legs into a pretzel. “I’ll pass.”

“So, this is your second year at Harmony?”

“Yep. It’s a good school. Not too big, you know. Then again, I don’t really go anywhere other than my dorm and to classes. I usually go home on the weekends, summer, and holidays.”

She swirled her legs in circles. “Yeah, I can see that. This sound silly, but this is my first time leaving home.”

He closed his warm hand around hers. The wild fire returned with vengeance, making her tiger pace under her skin, too close to the edge. She faced him and stared into his brown eyes. Big mistake. Desire she hadn’t noticed earlier reached out to her empathy, intensifying her own needs. When he cupped her face, liquid heat pooled between her thighs. Oh, God, she wanted to kiss him, possess him.
