Lynx in the Blood - S.A. Welsh I actually liked this book better than the first one. Even though the whole "mate" thing was a little overdone, this was had something outside of that which made the story a little more interesting. I also really enjoyed the interaction with the betas, they added a little humor to this whole story. I would have liked a better wrap up to this story, but knew the author was setting up for more in this series.
