This was a pretty fun read at first. I really enjoyed Gavin and Megan. She's a little fiery, he's a little alpha. He makes demands. She's like pfft! There's an instant attraction but everything's set up nicely world building-wise to deal with their insta-relationship and her finding out he's a wolf so it doesn't leave one rolling their eyes. It was a good time as they tried to keep her safe and figure out who was not only behind framing her but kept trying to attack her. And, of course, dealing with pesky attraction. lol
She glared at him. "I thought I said no touching."But then there was a very abrupt plot twist that left me feeling like I'd been duped by a main character I'd grown to like. I'd started to fall for them and they turned out to be what I'd consider a fake character who'd just been putting on an act. It might have worked for me if this had been a longer read but being a novella I just wasn't able to get back on solid ground with them. It was like brakes had been screeched and I was whipped around going wait, what?
"And here I thought you'd changed your mind, given your tongue in my mouth."
In the end Legal Wolf's Mate was a decently fun read but in the end not my favorite from Langlais due to some heroine issues.
In Legal Wolf's Mate, taking on a pro bono murder case isn't a problem for a lawyer who enjoys a challenge. Discovering that his new client is his mate? A tad more complicated. Gavin has no intention of settling down, especially not with a woman accused of murder, but once he sets eyes on Megan, his fate is sealed.
