Rating: 5/5

This is another story in the Fated Match series, this time focussing on Chloe, a witch who has worked for the agency with Vivian Sands for more than fifty years. The agency tries to help supernatural beings to find their soul mate and has been operating since 1704. In all those years they haven’t had a request quite like that of Kieran Clearwater, alpha werewolf of the Clearwater pack. He wants someone to pretend to be his girlfriend to help stop members of his pack trying to get him to mate at the approaching Mating moon. He will pay highly for the right candidate but isn’t actually looking for a mate as he had a very bad experience a few centuries ago. After rejecting an assortment of possible candidates for the role, Kieran suggests that instead of looking for other female candidates, Chloe should be the one. With trepidation she agrees, after creating a magically binding contract. That’s when the fun really starts as the two endeavour to ignore the building attraction between them….. Sometimes the best laid plans can have unexpected results!

This is a delicious paranormal romance, a great addition to this series and a story I really enjoyed. It ha some familiar characters in it from the earlier novels but could also be read as a standalone. The characters are well developed, believable in their own ways, with a variety of histories which directly impact on their ability to form relationships. Chloe is feisty, fearless and not afraid to stand up to Kieran. He’s not used to females not wanting him for his position, power and money – Chloe definitely intrigues him and is a great counterpart for him. The interactions with friends and pack members are superbly portrayed enhancing the whole story. I’ll definitely be looking out for further stories in this series and. by this author in future!

Thanks to the Author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
