Nov 2011   Jealous And Freakn' (Freakn' Shifters,#2) by Eve Langlais
November 2011

Francine’s loved Mitchell, a wolf like herself, since she first set eyes on him back when they were just kids. However, Mitchell’s never seen her as more than another annoying sister. Determined to make him realize she’s all grown up, she enlists the aide of Alejandro, a gorgeous cat shifter. She never counted on wanting them both.

Alejandro knows Francine is special from the first moment he meets the fiery plump wolf, which is why he suggests she use him to make Mitchell jealous. A great plan, especially if it means getting to kiss those luscious lips. One taste though, and he’s addicted, but how does he make her see past the man she loves to realize she’s also meant to be his mate.

For a long time now Mitchell’s been running from Francine, certain she’s mistaken that their destiny’s lie together. However, the little girl he remembers is all grown up, and when he sees her in the arms of another, a need to claim her overrides all his common sense. But, he’s waited too long and fate has decided that he’s going to have to share. Can he bend enough to accept Francine and another man, or will his jealousy keep him freakn’?

LLLKINDLE 60x90 My Review:
Rating: 5/5 Stars

This sizzling number is certifiably an entertaining read. 

Francine has been waiting her Mitchell, her bff's brother, to recognize her as a mate.  However, he sees her as only a sister but with five years to pass by Francine is grown.  The image of her as his kid sister is long out dated and he can not believe the mating frenzy that hits him dead in the face.  Actually, come to find or read he actually had feelings for her prior but the mating bond was not as pressing and could be easily ignored.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading his jealous actions... so much fun.
Alejandro on the other hand is enjoyable right off the bat and does little to deny the bond calling, he encourages it.  Self-proclaimed player and proud of it, has the mating frenzy bad to the bone.  His quick tongued innuendos is a perfect match for just as fiery, Francine.  Reading them battle it out with words is Eve's major success.

Alejandro and Mitchell, differ one another well enough that there is no confusion as to who is who. It also makes for a diversified story.  All in all, this installment is more so lusty romance with a focus on the relationship verses ample world-building conflict so if you are a romance fiend this is your read.  The entertainment quality earned the 5 stars rating.

This book was awesome! I love this series
There was a lot of Naomi in this book –
And of course Ethan and Javier with their only purpose in life is to make her feel like a Delicate Freakin’ Flower :)
She is so funny though – Her BFF – Francine is anything but a Delicate Freakin’ Flower, but she’s not a hard and over
Confident girl either. She is a perfectly normal Wolf shifter

She grows up as a BFF with Naomi, so of course she knows everything about her family life. She has known that Naomi’s
Older brother Mitchell was her mate since she was 10 years old, but Mitchell didn’t acknowledge her claims.
Since they grew up together, all his feelings of protection seemed to blur together as nothing more than being like a little sister.

We start off with Francine’s car breaking down on the way to Naomi’s baby shower… she could shift into her wolf, but then carrying
The baby shower gift was going to be a little hard, so what to do??

When out of nowhere she hears the purr of a motorcycle approaching. It pulls over. There is no way she’d be able to carry the gift while
Riding on that thing. Without seeing any other choice, she took his offer to have him balance the gift with her holding onto his waist.

And the Innuendos begin.. “Are you sure I’ll fit? “ She owned panties with more crotch room than that bike offered” “just hold on tight, baby, and I’ll do the rest”

That was when her inner canine wanted to sniff the stranger up and down and follow it up with a lick.. that was strange, her wolf only acted like that when Mitchell was around. Besides, she’s already got her mate.. well kind of.
Once Mitchell acknowledges her as his mate, she’ll be taken, so what’s got her wolf all excited about this stranger?

Looking out the window, Mitchell is anxiously waiting for Francine to show up. Not because he’s interested in her of course, but because he needs the head start out the back door. Francine had
Been chasing Mitchell since he could remember. Knocking him down and pinning him down, trying to get him to admit she was his mate. But she’ like a sister to him. That’s
Pretty gross.
After high school, Mitchell went his own way and avoided Francine. He knew things wouldn’t change, so what happened when he saw her pull up on the back of a motorcycle, hugging
Another man? She didn't look like a little kid with pigtails and braces anymore.

Mitchell stalks down to Francine and demands she tell him what she’s doing with this cat – “whatever happened to “Hi Francine? Or “How’s it going Francine?”
Annoyed that she would ride around on a motorcycle without a helmet with her new boyfriend .. “he’s not my boyfriend, Although, if he were, what we did together would be no one of your business.”
“and might I add, we’d do some very INTERESTING things.” The Tanned biker said.

And the fists started flying.
I loved how Naomi came out of the house to see why Javier’s younger brother Alejandro and her stupid brother were fighting in her front yard, and just casually striking up a conversation
With Francine.
“Ethan, they’re going to crush my pretty flowers” Naomi barked , just as Ethan grabbed the fighter’s by the arm and yanked them apart *Sigh* I still love Ethan! The Big hugs Kodiak Teddy Bear :)

OK so back to the story, We now met Alejandro, who seems to stir up emotions in Francine, as well as jealousy in Mitchell, So when after Mitchell stalks off and everyone else resumes to the shower,
Francine is a mix of emotions. And so is her wolf.

When she leaves with Alejandro to go home, Mitchell is waiting for them. Since he was acting like an idiot, Francine decided to go home with Alejandro instead of Mitchell. Mitchell went burzerk again
And Francine announced she had offered her couch to Alejandro, so it only made sense that he take her home.. and they left.

At Francine’s apartment, Alejandro comes in for a beer, not really expecting to sleep over, their innuendo’s get stronger and stronger, and funnier and funnier :)
Alejandro had noticed that Mitchell was acting more out of jealousy than big brotherly type, so he offered himself up to Francine to try to get Mitchell to notice her more.
With the help of him being her new boyfriend.
“And what do you get out of this?” “A Place to stay, A chance to needle my brother, among others. And in the pursuit of our answer to Mitchell’s affection, make-out time with a hot redhead”

So everyone wins, right?

This was a cute story , I personally didn’t love Mitchell, I think he was too stubborn, Maybe if we had some flashbacks or something from them growing up, or something, more about their childhood
Together. I just wasn’t feeling the WHY she was so headstrong over Mitchell. Sure her wolf went crazy whenever he was around, but .. I don’t know –

I do love Alejandro though! He’s so hot, and sexy, and funny! WOW! I love how quick witted these two are. But Alejandro is a Seducer of women. Lover with excellent techniques, Good looking, and He won’t make a promise to a women, and he doesn’t stick around very long afterwards.
But when his inner cat tries to claw it’s way out whenever Francine was around, he was starting to re-think his ways…

There was great action, tender love, and lots of sweaty hot sex :)
Awesome story!
