How can she choose only one mate when her body craves two—the virile beta and the man she loves?
Zachary Hunter will do anything to take Theresa as his mate, even if it means killing his best friend. However, Robert Blane is just as determined to ascend to Alpha. Both their beasts howl to mark her flesh, but only one can survive to claim her.
But with enemies circling, they must fight…for the pack, for Theresa, and for a future together.

The Mating Game Teaser: Rated R:
“Do you have on panties?”
“Oh, Zach.” Theresa sighed into the phone. The sound of her weight shifting atop fabric reached his ears. “What am I going to do with you?”
“I could offer all manner of suggestions.” Zach’s mouth went dry and his voice had acquired a sultry tone, deliberately suggestive, a hint of the lewd.
“Oh, you. Stop!” She giggled with delight and there was nothing in her attitude to make him believe she meant anything but the opposite.
His slacks had become tight in the crotch so he unfastened the sliding tabs. As a rule, he went commando because it made undressing to shift forms easier, but he happened to be wearing black silk boxers under his suit. With one hand, he shoved his boxers down to mid-thigh and his aroused shaft sprang into his hand. His balls were swollen and tender, and the slightest pressure felt exquisite. He muffled a moan.
“Where are you, Theresa?”
“Tell me what you’re wearing.”
“Zach!” Theresa sounded scandalized, but he also detected the note of intrigue in her voice. Her breathing grew rapid and uneven. “I’m wearing a white robe. I just got out of the shower.”
“Is it silk?”
“No, you know I can’t afford silk, silly. It’s cotton.”
His gaze flickered to the gift he’d bought her and he licked his lips. His hand stroked his engorged member, fingers and thumb encircling the girth. “Anything else?”

And now for my review...
The Mating Game by Melissa Snark
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Hot, fun read!
I’m hooked on Melissa Snark’s werewolf fiction. She added so much more to the myth and the history and masterfully created a truly enjoyable and believable story that surpassed my expectations. The pack is in trouble, with no easy fix, and one woman has the power to change everything. But her choice is not easy. The conflicts kept me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see how things would play out, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed. This book is smart, witty, and hot, hot, hot…
This book also carries a lot of heart. Zack is a babe, and possibly one of the best heroes I’ve read in a while. The way he waited for Theresa… He’s totally swoon-worthy. I highly recommend this novel!
