Product Description

Product Description

Persecution from Jason Truollo’s immediate family becomes too much—his stepfather’s backhand to the jaw is the final straw—and he heads toward the only family who had understood when he came out, his Uncle Raul Braga. When he gets there, he’s shocked when not only does his uncle welcome him with open arms, but he finds his uncle in a committed relationship…with a man. Not only that, but many of Uncle Raul’s friends are gay, too.

Finally, Jason feels like he’s found a place he fits in. Even better, he meets a man who pushes all his buttons, Michel McDover, but surely the sexy rugged mountain man can’t possibly be gay. Except he is, and he makes his interest in Jason plain. Deciding learning the joys of sex from an older man is perfect, Jason begins a torrid fling with Michel. A surprise encounter with some strangers in the woods makes Jason realize he may have far more to learn than he ever thought possible. For the hope of love and acceptance, is he willing to keep an open mind?

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Installment in the Series 14 Sept. 2013
By Sophia Rose - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This series is a favorite of mine for a few different reasons and one of them is the fun of finding out what familiar character will meet his fated mate. From the start, this one promised something different because one of the mates was a total stranger to me and the other was a stranger who was loosely connected to Raul a character who recurs in several books. The other difference was that struck me in the beginning was that it got more page time which is always a plus with me.

Once I started the story I didn't feel as connected to it as others. Hot sexy scenes? Oh yeah, but an emotional connection to the characters? Not so much. I'm not sure why since there was plenty of explanation about their backgrounds and each of them took turns with the narration. For some reason, I just didn't click with them. Truthfully, I wasn't that fond of Jason. He reacted strongly to Michel's concern that he was too young and possibly wouldn't want to settle down in a serious relationship because he would miss all his fun times. The thing is, that Jason's actions from that point on did show he wasn't very mature. He gave Michel the silent treatment for days in response to Michel's efforts to connect with him and then he misunderstands something that hurts him, but races off- again not planning to listen or let Michel explain. Did Michel handle things perfectly? Not always. But the thing is I didn't find them a good match.

The other things was that there was a brief bit of action and there were some sexy times, but the plot was only okay to me.

So, while it wasn't awful, it wasn't a favorite in the series either.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice diversion 20 Sept. 2013
By Robert Carnevali - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I rate this between three and four stars. I liked it, but it wasn't quite as compelling as some of the Ms. Richards other stories. Here, the wolf shifter Michel is towards the beginning of his self-imposed exile (which I'll explain shortly) when he meets his fated mate Jason. Jason is 22 years old and came to Stone Ride to stay with his Uncle Raul when his stepfather starts getting abusive with him because he's gay.

As characters go, these two are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Michel is large, muscular, hairy, and over 300 years old. Jason is slight, effeminate, practically hairless, and is only 22 years old. Michel is experienced, Jason has never "gone all the way" before. This makes for some interesting, and sexy, interplay between the two. What's also interesting is that the issue is addressed in detail as to how shifters actually exist in our world. Thinking about it, when you live over 500 years, you can't really stay in one place the whole time because people would soon notice that you barely age. At least, you can't stay in one place with the same identity. Hence the self-imposed exile as Michel and the pack are establishing his new identity (something packs and shifters do regularly). This gets explained in detail and is very welcome as the question has existed for me for some time now.

The weak points in the book is that the "action" scenes aren't very compelling, nor do they make much sense. Bad guys appear, bad guys get vanquished. That's about it. Also, during their appearance, their actions and reactions don't make much sense. While the ongoing plot of scientists capturing and experimenting with shifters is furthered, it's not furthered much at all. As such, it was an unnecessary component of the book.

That aside, the book was enjoyable and about on par with other books in the series. It wasn't as good as some, but was better than others. I would recommend to the publisher though to be a bit more careful in proofreading and editing. For example, using the word "knew" when you meant to say "new" is a minor issue, but fully avoidable with tighter proofreading.
5.0 out of 5 stars "An emotional tsunami unfolds for readers to enjoy." 18 July 2014
By MNix - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The day Jason Truollo was backhanded by his homophobic stepfather the college student knew it was time to leave. His only option is a bus ride to the home of his uncle Raul Braga in Stone Mountain.

Arriving at his uncle’s place Jason is more than astounded to find Raul in a committed relationship with a man, Sean Garcia and they’re raising Sean’s niece together. And, it appears that his uncle is friends with quite a few other gay couples judging by the men he’s introduced to at the cabin.

Coming down from his mountain home to let his Alpha know of dangerous traps set in the area, Michel McDover comes across the unmistakable scent of his fated mate. Meeting Jason for the first time is both a joy and a hardship as the human is only a few years legal and virginal. Their burgeoning relationship hits a roadblock after Jason spies Michel ‘horsing’ around with friends and it seems a little too intimate to the young human. Watching Michel become a wolf may be the last straw for their budding romance.

An emotional tsunami unfolds for readers to enjoy. Angst, love, joy, sorrow, and every emotion in between comes forth in The Mountain Man’s Mate to test Jason and Michel’s resolve. Their journey makes for a powerful tale. A major plot point however that has run through this series is wrapped up far too quickly to satisfy. Luckily, Jason and Michel’s romance more than makes The Mountain Man’s Mate irresistible.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Charlie Richards Books 27 Jan. 2014

Hot, hunky, fury man meets the man of his dreams and sweeps him off his feet. I've read the Wolves of Stone Ridge series and Kantra's Menagerie twice and have thoroughly enjoyed them both times. These books make me believe there is romance between men in this world.
3.0 out of 5 stars Lackluster 10 Jan. 2014
By Island Lover - Published on

This was just an okay addition to the Wolves of Stone Ridge series because I wasn't really feeling either of the MCs. I felt like this was a filler book of sorts and that Ms. Richards either didn't really know these characters or didn't really have love for these characters. I seriously contemplated returning this one for a refund, but I am a Charlie fan, so there'll have to be a few more like this before I just say no. Hopefully, it won't come to that.
