Most shifters are lucky to find one true mate in life. A hundred years after the murder of his first mate, the Goddess gifts Sebastian Von Drake with a second match. However, his sassy mate resists their union. Her past hold secrets she doesn’t want to share.
Alice Miller is drawn to the stick in the mud wolf like no one she’s ever met before, but she can’t mate him and risk everything. Why won’t he take no for an answer?
Danger, intrigue, traitors, spies, and secrets…combined with the irresistible passion of a shifter for his mate. Bastian will claim Alice, come hell or high water. No matter how much the sassy wolf howls. 

Alice has secrets. Secrets even her best friend is unaware of. Secrets which involve more than just her and in order to protect others she must deny the shifter fated to be hers. But in Howl Sassy the latest installment of Tamara Hoffa’s The Animal in Me series, Alice learns just what it means to be the mate of an ALPHA. I liked just how well Alice and Sebastian fit. When Ms. Hoffa first introduced us to Sebastian and Alice I wasn’t sure how she would make it work, but as we pulled back the layers of the characters they worked. Both Sebastian and Alice were strong characters. Sebastian has faced unimaginable pain. He was so proper but he appreciated the second opportunity fate was granting him. He was determined to fight for Alice even if he had to fight the woman herself. And Alice has lived with a secret that required her to keep a piece of herself back. It required that she trust no one outside her family which leads to loneliness. She must hide a part of herself even from her best friend. Finding someone that is meant for her should have been a happy moment, but Ms. Hoffa showed just how much strength Alice must find to deny her heart’s desire. I loved that each character’s strength was shown in different ways but they complimented each other. The sparks that flew between Sebastian and Alice were wonderful to see and Ms. Hoffa painted their chemistry vividly. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Sebastian and Alice’s journey to find happily ever after and can’t wait to return as others find their way as well.
