Review: Alpha’s Unwilling Mate by Lacey Thorn


Published 2017



I refuse to mate a man I don’t know. My father’s dictate has me ready to run and never look back. I won’t be the virgin sacrifice used to entice Bastion James to accept my community as part of his pack. Nothing will change my mind. Especially not the man himself. Not the way he looks at me, the way he touches me, or the heat of his kiss.




From the moment I saw her, I knew she was mine. Raina Byrd belonged in my arms. More importantly, she belonged in my bed. One glimpse at the fire in her eyes and I knew we’d burn the world around us until nothing else existed. One touch of her skin and I was lost to anyone else. One taste of her lips and I knew I’d kill to possess her.

I warned her what would happen if she tried to run. Now, I won’t be satisfied until I’m buried inside her and she’s screaming my name. 


May be spoilers:

First time reading this author, but definitely not the last.

Alpha’s Unwilling Mate is the 1st in the James Pack series. This has 8 chapters with an epilogue and is about Bastion and Raina.

From the first chapter, this kept my attention. Love a story that makes me smile and the bantering does. Raina is not weak by no means.

Raina has been promised to Bastion. She’s angry and goes out with her friend who is the main character of the 2nd story.

Bastion is the alpha of his pack and he wants Raina and has since he seen her picture.

Both know they are mates as soon as they meet.

She puts up a little resistance, but not long.

Steamy, very steamy. She’s a virgin and it just says it’s been a long time for him.

I loved it. There was just a blip of drama combining their worlds, but didn’t last long. Was a great read and if flowed well.

No cheating, no ow/om drama, no separations, slight pushing away, but didn’t last long.

I loved Bastion. He was all in from first look and he wasn’t shy with his feelings.

Raina? I loved her just as much. She was his equal from the start, which I loved. She could definitely hold her own and she did.

Epilogue is a couple months out, then 6 ½ months later. They are happily mated with a baby girl. I gave it 🌟🌟🌟🌟. Thanks for reading.
