Review: Prey Mate (Dubious #8) by Bailey Bradford

Predator and prey...one reluctant mate.

Cody Sanderson wasn't looking for a life on the run, but one mistake has cost him his freedom. If he gets caught, it might cost him his life. The man he hooked up with for a night wasn't a man after all, but a beast intent on owning Cody.

But Cody isn't anyone's to keep. He will evade capture and die before he lets himself be caged by a monster. When he's finally caught, he thinks he's about to be taken to the one man he doesn't want to see ever again. Instead, he's offered protection and a solution that will keep him safe.

The only thing is, he'd have to be mated to one of the very things he feared most—a wolf shifter. Cody's not so sure the risk is worth taking.

Looking over the shoulder and constantly giving into paranoia and panic has become Cody’s life. All for one night with a handsome yet strange man. Or so he thought. Now he was being hunted by a werewolf alpha, Ansel, who wants his blood. Derrick will do anything to protect his species as well as the man he begins to care for.

Wow! It has been quite a while since I had a shifter romance really take hold of me and that I completely read in about an hour. I like to savor my paranormal romances but with this novella I could not stop turning the pages. I liked the fact that it was not love at first sight between Cody and Derrick or even have the total mating urges. Despite them having crazy desire for each other.

After reading Heart’s Protector (number 6 in the Dubious Book series) did I realize that I was reading them out of order. That was a great thing about this book that it can be read as a standalone without feeling lost. I might have understood what dire ancestors were but that was all that was confusing; which they explained toward the middle of the book. Novellas, even though they are short, need to have substance and development. Prey Mate had that and so much more!

I enjoyed this novella very much and the more I read of Bailey Bradford the more I enjoy her work! I am going to go back and look for the rest of this series as they are short and sweet and quite captivating!

I was gifted a copy of this novella from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review. The opinions and ratings are solely my own
