As the beast within struggles to break free, he must learn to be what she needs... Surviving for centuries, powerful lupine shifter Jayce Kazan managed to stay away from humans until he met Kat Saburova and was consumed by the need to protect her. But while Jayce shared his passion with the human seer, he refused to make her his bondmate—a refusal that caused the end of their relationship. A year later, an attack that left Kat near death has resulted in another lupine shifter turning her. Furious that he wasn’t the one to save her, Jayce is determined to show Kat that he is the one she should rely on. But the newly turned shifter is still traumatized and worried that she’ll hurt those she loves, unless she can learn to control her inner wolf. And as Jayce struggles to protect Kat from her own worst instincts and convince her to rekindle their love, the extremists who almost killed her are looking to finish the job…


Jayce Kazan may be the revered and feared enforcer for the North America Lupine council but one woman has the power to bring him to his knees. Unfortunately for Jayce he made the stupid decision to leave the woman he loves because being with him will make her a target and as a human she was more vulnerable. However, things have changed. The woman he loves was brutally attacked and now she is wolf like him.

Kat has had a brutal year. The love of her life ditched her because she’s human and then she suffered through a devastating kidnapping attack from the Anti-Paranormal League. Now she must learn to live with her new wolf instincts with her ex stalking her every move. Kat wants to strike back against those who harmed her but it’s hard to do with Jayce sticking his nose in her business. He left her after all and if he thinks he can have her now that she is a wolf he’s deluded. 

When vicious attacks on humans point to the local pack Jayce is out to discover the culprit especially when he finds a link to Kat. Jayce will do anything to protect Kat from harm but will he be able to win her heart back? 

I can sum up Katie Reus’ Mating Instinct in three little letters…WOW! I am continually blown away by Ms. Reus’ Moon Shifter series. When I open the pages I feel like I’m visiting family. I become immersed in the story so deeply that I feel like I am amidst the characters joining in on the action. 

I love Ms. Reus’ characters! Jayce and Kat rock Mating Instinct! There are so many emotions between these two you can feel the firestorm brewing and when the passion explodes between them…well let’s just say it’s spectacular. Whether it’s their emotions or their heat between the sheets, Jayce and Kat sizzle! However, it is their battle with their emotions that makes this story sensational. 

The Moon Shifter series has great potential. There are so many characters that I cannot wait to read more about. Ms. Reus does a wonderful job of integrating characters into her stories slowly letting us get to know them. There is so much sexual tension going on at the Armstrong/Cordona Pack compound. I look forward to seeing these potential couples find romance.

Mating Instinct gives the reader an outstanding plot and more importantly unparalleled romance. This series keeps getting better and better and I love Joyfully Recommending it!
