Review: Perfect mate (Mate Series #1) by Mina Carter

Monsters do exist…and they’re the good guys.

Lillian Rosewood leads an ordinary, boring life working as the manager of a psychiatric hospital. The highlights of her day, other than her skinny hot chocolate, are the hunky guards who work in the secure section. Until a late night emergency is wheeled in.

Captain Jack Harper is insane, drop-dead gorgeous…and just had his abdomen shredded. Despite the fact they’re not an emergency room, Lillian can’t turn him away and risk a death on her hands. Unable to get the handsome soldier out of her mind, Lillian sneaks into the restricted area to check on him. What she finds is beyond belief. Somehow Jack has managed to heal himself from a near fatal wound in mere hours.

When one of the doctors, Walker, attempts to rape her, things go from bad to worse. In the blink of an eye, Jack is loose and Walker is dead… and Lillian must accept a truth about her rescuer that will change her world forever. What if the patients aren’t insane? What if their stories of secret government experiments and monsters are true?

Warning: Contains blood, mayhem and nude werewolves operating heavy weaponry. Large amounts of sarcasm, and smart-ass vampires may offend some readers. No civilian hospital staff were harmed in the making of this story.

I loved the concept of the book. This is a world where a virus made by the government can turn you into a Blood, Lycan or a Zombie. Right up my alley and it has romance. For me though, this book fell short in the romance department. Half of the book was spent in a huge battle against the government and I really don’t know how the hero and heroine even fell in love, lust that I got but not the love. Lillian was also the most understanding and accepting girl, in the space of a few hours she completely accepts all the super natural creatures that are popping up.

The writing was very good and did keep you engaged. There were funny and quirky moments all though out the book. One of favorite’s from the book.

“Oh, don’t be so damn stupid! You’ve seen zombies ready to snack on your brains. He’s a werewolf, for heaven’s sake. Probably buttering you up for dinner later!”

I gave this book a 3 because I did enjoy it and it was a fun read. The writing is good and the bed room scenes are hot and well let’s just say Cpt. Jack is HOT!

  1. I loved this story, I thought it was a refreshing take on government/military conspiracy and how to become a paranormal being. She literally had the walking dead in her story. I agree they fell in love rather quick but for my peace of mind I chalked it up to a true mating thing lol.
