Review by Tiger Lily
Finn York had a bad experience with werewolves. Marked emotionally and physically from the experience, his aversion causes him to fight the attraction he feels for the female werewolf he meets at Wulf’s Den. Yet her scent draws him with the irresistible power of a werewolf’s mating instinct.
Jocelyn works as a waitress at Wulf’s Den. She’d noticed Finn months before but the sudden changes in him confuse her. When she serves him drinks one night he growls and sniffs the air as if he can smell her arousal and Jocelyn’s confusion escalates. But her interest in Finn heightens and she plots a way to force him to overlook his disgust to claim her as his mate.
When a woman’s in love, she’ll stop at nothing to get her man. When he’s not sure he’s in love, he’d better watch out. An independent, determined woman will get her mate.

Ms. Chenery writes a unique take on the werewolf novella. Her characters are determined and willing to do what it takes to get what they want. Finn has a deep hatred of werewolves after an experiment went wrong. What he doesn’t know is that his hatred will be his undoing. Then there’s Jocelyn. She’ll be the end of him, if she has her way, but it’ll be a great way to go. She’s out to prove that a wolf isn’t all bad, especially when they are mates.
I liked the way Ms. Chenery interpreted that first bloom of love between two people. There’s a certain reluctance to be alone. With wolves, that need is the first flush of mating heat. Finn and Jocelyn can’t be apart, no matter how much he’s in denial of his feelings. I loved Jocelyn’s zeal. When she put her mind to capturing Finn, she stopped at nothing to convince him they belonged together. More women should show such determination.
The love scenes are rife with passion and written in such a fashion that the reader feels a part of the passion, not just a mere observer. Who knew you could have so much fun with a fresh baked batch of brownies? Very hot!
If you want a sexy paranormal read that’s nothing like any stories out there, then you want to read Mated to a Wolf. I give this novella 4 ½ cherries.
