Taming the Alpha (Crescent Moon #1), Claiming His Mate (Crescent Moon #2), Tempting His Mate (Crescent Moon #3) by Savannah Stuart

I read these three sexy shifter novellas one right after the other.  Although characters carry over they can each be read stand-alone with no major loss of storyline.

Taming the Alpha (Crescent Moon #1)
After a year of lusting after his sexy employee, werewolf pack-leader Grant broke his no-involvement-with-humans rule and made a move on Talia. A month later the sex is still red hot and everything between them is perfect. Or so he thought. Until the night he shows up at her place expecting their usual ritual of mind-blowing sex and finds out she has other plans. And they don’t include him.

When Talia announces she’s tired of being his last priority, Grant realizes he might lose the only woman he’s ever cared about. He has to do something fast to fix their relationship, but she’s completely unaware that he’s not human. He’s not above using sex to bind her to him, but when she wants more than that he has a risky decision to make. If he admits the truth he risks not only his heart, but the safety of his pack and the existence of all supernatural beings as well.
Grant is Alpha.  All Alpha.  He is the Alpha of his pack a job that keeps him hopping as well as his regular job so he really doesn’t have a lot of time to devote to a relationship.  Talia thinks Grant is hot and sex with him is off the charts but she wants more (GO TALIA) and tells him so. When Grant is flabbergasted that this little human is telling him off (one of my favorite scenes btw) she shuts him down.  It is fun watching the almighty Alpha have to work to get the “little human” to take him as mate.

Claiming His Mate (Crescent Moon #2)
She thought the house was empty when she broke in…

When jaguar shifter Lauren Hayes breaks into an alpha’s home to steal back what rightfully belongs to her pride, she doesn’t expect to be tackled by Max McCray, second-in-command of the Kincaid wolf pack. As punishment for her crime the sexy wolf shifter demands that she stay with him for one week. Knowing she’ll start a war between her pride and his pack if she doesn’t, she has no other choice but to agree, even if the thought of being near him 24/7 makes her scared that she won’t be able to hide her growing attraction to him.

Now he has a week to make her his…

Max has waited months to make a move on the sexy jaguar shifter and now that she’s broken shifter rules, he’s not letting her go. He doesn’t care that he’s a wolf and she’s a jaguar, claiming her forever is the only thing that matters. Unfortunately, not everyone likes the idea of him being with a feline shifter. Max is forced to choose sides between Lauren and members of the pack he’s sworn allegiance to in order to protect the woman he knows is his destined mate.
Cats and Dogs, Jaguars and Wolves same thing right?  We met Max in Taming the Alpha (Crescent Moon #1) as Grants second.  Max is an okay guy but has been having a hard time finding the time to find his mate (a jaguar of all things)  First he had admit to himself that she was indeed the on for him and then his mother was killed and he has to go after the vampires that killed her and then he had to recover from that.  Then Grant and Talia get married and go on honeymoon so he is in charge so he can’t go after his little cat so imagine his surprise when he catches her breaking into Grants house to steal something.  This is a sexy fun cats and dogs read. 

Tempting His Mate (Crescent Moon #3) (ARC provided by publisher through NetGalley for a fair and honest review. )
She ran from him once…

Wild one night stands are not Ella Hayes’s style, but with her confidence at rock bottom after a devastating betrayal and her painful departure from her jaguar pride, who could blame her for falling into bed with a sexy wolf? She never thought she’d see him again. And never in her craziest dreams did she expect to come face-to-face with him on her first day with the Kincaid wolf pack. Sleeping with Asher had been one of the most intense experiences of her life—but now she wonders if they could have more.

He’s not letting her go again…

Tired of life as a lone wolf, shifter Asher has joined his cousin’s pack. The last person he expected to see was the sexy woman who ran out on him in the middle of the most incredible night of his life. The Ella he meets now is nothing like the wild, sensual woman he let his guard down with, but he likes both sides of the complicated female. But now somebody—or something—sinister is targeting Ella, and Asher moves quickly to get her under his roof and under his protection. Keeping the sexy female safe and proving they belong together are two missions he doesn’t plan to fail. Because this time, he’s playing for keeps.

This was the best of the three novellas in this series yet.  I love Asher.  He is frickin’ hot.  Asher has finally come home after wandering as a lone wolf.  He doesn’t expect to meet the hot little jaguar that ran out on him working for his pack as an accountant.  Ella needs a new start so when her friend Lauren (from Claiming His Mate (Crescent Moon #2) ) tells her about a job with the Kincaid pack she jumps at the chance.  She doesn’t expect to run into Asher, ever.  She doesn’t do one night stands and getting together with him was an anomaly except now she wants to turn that one night stand into a lifetime.  Smoking hot sweet and fun quick read.
