Chase walked away from Jasmine a year ago, thinking he was protecting her from his world.  When he finds her almost dead, he realizes he can’t let her go; not only because she is his mate, but she is now in danger of losing her life.

Mine to Chase is an interesting story about a half-breed vampire/werewolf.  Chase is an enforcer for a club run by two vampires, but he is also the alpha of one of the werewolf packs in the city.  Chase is actually running down a rogue vampire when he finds Jasmine near death.

The author had some twists on both the vampires and werewolves in this story.  While there are still some of the typical traits we know and love, the author created some that weren’t quite what we usually expect,.  I really enjoyed the explanations she had both Jenny and Chase give Jasmine, not only about them, but about vampires and werewolves.

The chemistry between Jasmine and Chase is scorching.  Their relationship is very realistic, as both have their own set of insecurities to overcome as they bond as mates. 

I really enjoyed several of the secondary characters and the lighthearted moment when they were waiting, after setting a trap for those that wanted to kill Jasmine, was priceless. I would love to read more about them especially about Jenny and one of Chase’s friends, Lethal, in the future.

This book is loosely related to Scarred and Kilt from the anthology Something Wicked This Way Comes, Volume 2.
