Dawson Rivers is on a mission for the True Alpha---bring the rampaging shifters under control. Adam proves to be invaluable to his task. Their intense mutual attraction explodes into a powerful physical, and emotional connection.

Their future together is in peril, when Adam's convoy is ambushed. Can they learn to rely on the strength of their bond? Adam staying alive long enough for Dawson to find him depends on it.

 This is my first book by author Kendall McKenna, I truly loved the style with which this author tells a story. Had me hooked from page one.
Adam Madison is a character I could really relate too. He is trying to stand on his own and not rely on his big brother’s shadow to get him by.  He is a strong man, who suffers a lot in this book but manages to be very human and loving.  I liked that about him, even though he was in hell at one point he kept his wits about him and managed to think on his feet. He didn’t necessarily just wait for someone else to rescue him.
Dawson Rivers he is trying to make the shifters follow him. He is strong, very alpha. But what I liked about him is he really did know how to lead. He wasn’t all demanding and pushy. He let each person shine in the job they were good at.  A true leader if you ask me.
Overall Strength of the Mate is really intense and sexy at the same time.  I did find myself feeling slightly lost in the connection the wolves had, I think it is because this is my first book in the series. However it really had a lot of heart and soul.  This is the book you pick up when you want to sink into a great story with men you will always remember.
