Blurb: As a shifter enforcer, Teine Carlson lived a life of adventure and purpose. She may not have agreed with everything her alpha did, but she followed the rules. Until, she is suddenly thrust into an existence she’d never imagined for herself. Now she has a new purpose…to protect the life of an innocent child.
Nolan Channing was a playboy. He worked hard, and played even harder. When his brother met and fell in love with his mate, Nolan’s thoughts and ways shifted. He wanted what his brother had. Walking into the Naked Wolfe, the last thing he expected was to scent the other half of his soul. Now, all bets were off.
Teine is scared and on the run, with no plans of staying in one place too long, mate or not. She is on a mission, one she promised someone very dear to her she would not fail. Nolan has his eyes on the sly fox, with no intention of letting her slip away. Can Nolan’s determination to protect his mate, along with their future together, change Teine’s mind? Or will her promise keep her on the run, intent on steering clear of her past and two steps ahead of the enemy?

Protecting His Fox’s Sass is the 2nd in the Sass and Growl series. Has 15 chapters and is about Teine and Nolan. I do recommend reading the series in order, as we met Nolan in the first.
Teine, a fox shifter, was an enforcer for her alpha, but now she’s on the run to protect her niece.
Nolan, he’s a bear shifter and in the first book, he really sounded like a player, but we didn’t see him with anyone and he hasn’t been with anyone since Emery came into their family.
She sees and smells him when he comes in the club and they both know they are mates, but she runs before he sees her. She’s so worried about making sure her niece is safe, she doesn’t have room for anything else.
Steam happens later in the story, still hot.
Great read, I thought. The only drama is from her past, but it was over quickly.
Writing was great, flowed well.
No cheating, no ow drama-there was a blip where his sister mentioned a revolving door of women and it hurt her for a sec, no om drama, no separations once they get together and no epilogue, but I know we’ll see them in the next story.
I love that we get to see the characters from the first story. A continuing storyline with just the main characters changing in each story, makes for a great read for me.
I loved it and can’t wait for the next. I gave it 🌟🌟🌟🌟. Thanks for reading.
