Romance Book Review: Celia Kyle's Gabriella

Author: Celia Kyle
Series Connection: Alpha Marked
Genre(s): Menage, Paranormal Romance, BBW Romance 
Publisher: Summerhouse Publishing

Gabriella is smart, funny and sassy and she can't play anyone's patsy, but she knows that there is nothing us to do but accept her fate when she is called to the Gathering now that she is thirty. If she has to do it she's not going to take anything from anyone. That's her motto, until she sees how happy her sister is after accepting her mates.

But things don't go as smoothly for Gabriella as they did for her sister. Gabby mates aren't an alpha pair, or at least they haven't completed their bond and they reject her. 

That rejection doesn't stop a challenge against Gabby and now all Gabby sees is things are going from bad to worse.

Berke and Jack have known they were an alpha pair since the age of four when they started the right of passage, but circumstances in the past stopped the process and now they are stuck with the consequences. For Berke it is hell. He has wanted nothing but to claim his place with Jack and find their mate. And her she is. But Jack's tortured past is leaving him in limbo. 

Can Jack push forward and save Gabby before it is too late?

Humorous and exciting to the end, Gabby is the type of personality that you just want to keep routing for because even though she is so tough and jaded, she has a heart of gold and a sense of humor that is lights up the pages. Making this story a hit even if the romance didn't pan out.  

Thirty and single? Getcha ass to the Gathering!

Ugh. Gabriella Wickham thought turning thirty was bad enough, but now she’s been invited (ordered) to attend this year’s Gathering (werewolf speed dating). Having a Mark on her arm means that she’s one of the few human women destined to mate with not one, but two Alpha werewolves. Thank goodness werewolves don’t come in “ugly.” After her sister Scarlet mates the Ruling Alphas, things really start to get interesting. Gabby runs into not one, but two hotter than hot werewolves who make her tingle in all the right places. Yum. Of course, “yum” comes with baggage of both the mental and female kind. Lovely. Luckily it’s nothing a few punches and a good talking to can’t cure. Maybe…-ish.

Berke Davis and Jack Wright know that lush, curvaceous Gabriella is their mate. Who cares that they’re currently not part of an Alpha pair? Details, details. Burke has been half bound to his best friend Jack since they were four, but the past keeps them from solidifying their pairing and taking up the mantle of Alpha. Berke understands his friend’s feelings, but Jack is about to get a lesson on living and loving. Berke just hopes the lessons are learned before they both lose Gabriella. Especially when she is Challenged by a rival to first blood…a Challenge that could end in very permanent, and deadly, consequences…for Gabriella.
