Colton Rivers was born in captivity. Living within the walls of Potestas, he has lived with a terrible guilt for years, and after what is left of his family turns against him, he turns to the only safe harbour he knows—technology.
Jordan Foster has watched the people he cares most about find their mates, wondering when it would be his chance. So imagine his shock when he discovers his mate is none other than the arrogant little smartarse who has been causing him a world of trouble in their online war against Potestas.
Now, two opposing sides with the same goal—to take down Potestas once and for all—must come together, not just for their sake, but for the paranormal community. Can Jordan see past the attitude and snark, to the vulnerable mate beneath? And can Colton trust that Jordan won’t abandon him like everyone else has?

It is best if you have read prior books in this series before you read Jordan’s Purrfect Mate the fifth book in Jess Buffett’s Hunter Clan series.  Having said that, you will enjoy this addition to Ms. Buffett’s world.  Jordan has been a strong but snarky character in this world.  He has mad skills and a bruised ego as he follows Colton’s breadcrumbs but with the help of friends he remembers the importance of supporting his mate.  I enjoyed seeing Jordan’s and Colton’s friends remind them of the importance of communication.  I enjoyed the smack down provided curtesy of their best friends.
Speaking of Colton, talk about a shifter with a rough life, I mean his attempts to protect his father led to an unintended result.  He lost everyone he loved and his fear of losing more leads to a snarky disposition.  He didn’t know how to connect but boy was he funny (at least to me) while he tried.  I adored his humor even while understanding why he kept others away and wishing he would let others in.
I loved that Ms. Buffett continues to move her story arc along even while giving us complex characters.  I found myself laughing and enjoying Jordan, Colton and the rest of the gang.  I loved the sense of community which pervades throughout the book even as a war is being fought.  I am eagerly waiting to see where Ms. Buffett will take us next.
