Story Overview:
Dammit , just how many toes was she going to have to stomp on before people realized she was a Delicate Freakn' Flower?

Naomi doesn't want to follow tradition and settle down with a violence-loving, chest thumping shapeshifter. She grew up in a household with five, testosterone laden brothers where none of the dishes ever matched, the ugly-as-sin furniture could withstand any catastrophe, and where crazy glue was bought by the case.

When fate--with a snicker--makes her meet not one, but two mates, Naomi digs her heels in and refuses to do what her wolf--and her body--demands. No way is she voluntarily allowing herself to get hitched to a pair of dumbass--totally hot and muscled--lacrosse players.

Can Ethan, the towering Kodiak bear, and Javier, the sexy, tanned jaguar convince this she-wolf that life with them won't be all chaos? And can this Delicate Freakn' Flower unbend her prejudices enough to recognize she needs a pair of men who can handle her thorns--and her passion?

Author's Note: This story is an erotic paranormal romance, heavy on the romance, that contains sexual situations involving multiple partners that some readers may find offensive. It is meant for open minded adults only. In the threesome scenes, all the sexual focus is on her--with delicious results.

My Review:
With a name like that, you know that this book is going to be fun. Naomi grew up in a house with 5 brothers who are all wolf shifters. To say that things got violent and out of control on a constant basis, is putting it mildly. As a result, Naomi has decided that she wants to settle down with a nice human man so life stays calm & serene. You can imagine her surprise when her wolf side realizes that she should be mated to not just one, but two, rough & ready jocks/shifters playing at a professional lacrosse game.
Ethan (kodiak bear) and Javier (jaguar) are best friends and are just as shocked as Naomi- so much so that they lose control of the play they are making and end up clobbering Naomi in the face with the lacrosse ball. Not exactly the way to win a girl's heart and that's exactly what they plan on doing. The goal- to become friends with Naomi and let her realize that they will be perfect mates for her.
There are so many things about this story that make it heartwarming...
*Ethan is a huge teddy bear- massive guy with the massive heart to go with it. He has his insecurities but knows that if given the chance, can and will make Naomi safe, cherished, and happy.
*Javier- smooth, gorgeous, is a natural-born charmer. He has an innate sense of when to let Naomi stew and when she really needs them.
*Naomi's mom- love that she is on the boys' side and is doing all in her power to help them with hints and info about Naomi.
*Naomi says that she wants a calm life, but she has a temper and is known to get pretty physical in her own right. I love how her inner wolf reacted so quickly and definitively to the 2 guys.
It's really a gorgeous, fun story. One stubborn girl + 2 guys that will do anything for her = true love. Just purely a story that leaves you feeling happy for having read it!
