Made the Grade: Hot For Xmas by Trinity Blacio

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 320 KB | Release Date: November 30, 2016 | Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books | Obtained: Amazon

"Hot For Xmas" by Trinity Blacio (aka Maria MoonStar)

Author's Book Description : Emily Garland always feared she’d end up a cat lady, but she’d have dogs instead. Her sex life—what sex life? Any time she had hopes for seducing a man, he’d disappear. Emily was giving Santa one last opportunity to bring her a mate, but if something didn’t happen by Christmas, she was giving up.

Ever since his parents were murdered on Christmas Eve, Baas Sather has hated the holiday, so he never celebrated it. Now, at 50 and in his prime as a werewolf, he and four other pack leaders need to find a mate. But not one female in their group or the bordering ones carries the special scent. Baas had never considered anyone that wasn’t were as a possible mate. Alphas were known for their aggressive behavior and their strong sexual needs were too much for one human female, at least that’s what he’d always believed. Then a week before Xmas, everything changed when she walked into their lives.

One careless, and if he had anything to say about it, soon-to-be-dead wolf had beaten and starved his mate and cubs. It fell to Baas and his brothers to take care of anyone who got out of hand within their pack. However, when Emily Garland, a local social worker, showed up, he’s unprepared for her smart aleck mouth. Now all he can think about is how to convince her that she was made for him and his pack leaders… and how they were going to protect her from a psychotic stalker.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! For most of Emily's life, she has been on the run trying to escape her past and the cult that was after her. Yet, by chance, she learns that she is the National Alphas' mate, so she now has four men wanting to protect her at all costs. Although when her past, and the cult, finally catch up to her will she be able to put an end to all of her misery and move on with her men or will fate have something more in-store for her instead?

This novel wasn’t what I was expecting, as it surprised me more than once, yet I enjoyed unique situations that this novel throws at Emily. In addition, Emily is a strong presence and character all by herself as she seemingly takes on everything that comes her way while protecting those around her. Add in her growing relationship with Baas, Abe, Sam, and Zack, the reader gets thrown into a world of mystery and intrigue while discovering the passion these four men have for their new mate. I found this suspenseful paranormal romance surprisingly clever in how it is portrayed and very well written.

I recommend it to those who are fans of Ms. Blacio and/or looking for an intriguing paranormal ménage romance.
