-- FROM BESTSELLING SERIES -- VEGAS MATES
Tess Demakis loves the city life. The noise, the lights, the people. Everything about the rush feels like home. The only thing missing is a spark with any of the pack males. After her and her twin sister's twenty-fifth birthday passes, she'd thought for sure one of the handsome men in her aunt's pack might've been meant for her. 

- No. Such. Luck. - 

Patrick O'Hearn just got back home from a long tour overseas with his SEAL unit. The big grizzly is ready to lie back and enjoy the snowy mountain inn retreat his brother renovated last year, meet his brother's wife and some of her family, enjoy good food, etc. The last thing he ever expected was to find a mate, especially not his sister-in-law. 

Now he can't think of anything but unwrapping the gorgeous sassy blonde and making her his forever. 

- Best. Christmas. Ever. -

MY REVIEW
I have read all the books in the Vegas Mates series prior to this, so I was psyched to receive a complimentary copy of Unwrapping Tess in exchange for a honest review.
This is a holiday romance that is short, sweet and hot. The focus of the story is on Tess Demakis, a wolf shifter and Patrick O’Hearn, a bear shifter. Patrick had returned home to spend time with his brother during the Christmas holidays. While on his visit he met Tess. The moment these two laid eyes on each other; they knew that they had found their mate.

Now, based on my experience with this author’s work, I was hoping for an exciting read filled with intrigue, drama and mystery. Unfortunately, that was not the case. I found it difficult to connect with the characters. I felt that the story was rushed and not enough time was spent developing the characters. The highlight of the story is the main characters meeting and eventually sealing their bond.

Overall, for me this was an ok read. Inspite of my disappointment with this installment Ms. Shannan will still remain as one of my must read authors.
