Tri-mates (Cascadia Wolves Book #2) By Lauren Dane
I really enjoyed this book. This is the second book in the Cascadia Wolves series by Lauren Dane. Tracy Warden was introduced in the first book and she now gets her own!
Tracy Warden heads down to the Pacific Pack for a meeting about border issues between the two packs. Things are so bad that the National Mediator Gabe Murphy is coming down to help with the Cascadia and Pacific Packs. Upon arriving Tracy and the rest of the Cascadia group beginning working on the border issues with Pacific. Shortly into the meeting Tracy is introduced to Nick Lawrence the Enforcer and 2nd of Pacific. Both Nick and Tracy are distracted for the rest of the meeting as they begin to wonder if they are mates. During a break in the meeting Tracy and Nick realize they are mates and seal the bond.
Tracy is reminded that the tri-bond is needed and Gabe Murphy the National Pack’s Mediator is more than happy to serve as her anchor. The next day Gabe comes over and performs the tri-bond. At Tracy’s swearing in ceremony at Pacific her grandmother tells her that it’s not a Tri-bond but a Tri-mate, that’s why she has such strong feelings for Nick and Gabe. The remainder of the story is the Tracy, Gabe and Nick working out their complex relationship while continuing to fight the Werewolf Mafia.
I loved Tracy’s character! I really think that she is a strong character and secure in herself, her looks and her sexuality. Nick makes me think of a hot guy who looks mouth-watering in an expensive suit and all you want to do is get him out of it. There were times when he did get on my nerves and I wanted to smack him, but Tracy put him in his place quickly. Gabe Murphy’s character is great. Who wouldn’t love to get it on with Professor studly? The chemistry between the three of them is awesome. The one thing I didn’t like was how both Nick and Gabe kept saying to Tracy that “you are not my usual type but I still like you”. It got on my nerves. On a side note, I totally dig Tracy’s dog. The book is faced paced and keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. The author has introduced us to some great characters who will hopefully get their own stories soon.
Tri-Mates is one of my favorite in the Cascadia Wolves series, definitely worth checking out. Can’t wait for the next book!

Synopsis from Book/Publisher:
Werewolves mate for life. For every wolf, there’s a mate out there. So Tracy Warden is thrilled when she discovers Nick Lawrence, the sexy Enforcer for another Pack, is her mate. But sometimes lucky wolves get to double dip in the form of the extremely rare Tri-Mate-Bond. And so it is when Tracy discovers that her Anchor bond with National Pack Mediator Gabe Murphy is far more. Suddenly Tracy finds herself with two alpha males whose hunger for her never seems to wane. But their bliss is marred by the heavy hand of the werewolf mafia whose reach goes very high up indeed. Money laundering, kidnapping, assault and other general mayhem can’t mar the intensity of their bond, but it sure can threaten their lives
