This is one of the best books in the series. I actually cried reading this book, not only because of misunderstanding between Del-Ray and Anya but between Anya and her friends and the breeds she rescued. Not a book you can put down.

This book in the series was by far was the most emotional and well developed love stories of the breeds stories. I felt and believed the emotion and agony of the main characters. Some of Leigh's books just contain filler between the sex scenes, this one was far better written and the erotic scenes were an evolution of the story and as always the love scenes are well written although very graphic, for those who enjoy the more subtle romance stories, this may not be your cup of tea.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. I like the story. It had it all. Concern for family, concern for the mission, concern for each other even though they tried to hide it.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Coyote's Mate?
The most memorable was the end. A Breed finally recognized the worth of his mate and went on his knees for her. I get that the Breeds are dominant, but it gets boring time after time how they show their dominence.
What aspect of Brianna Bronte’s performance would you have changed?
This time, nothing. Since mostly everyone was foreign the accents and the voices were different from all the other previous breeds.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
A love unrecognized, will it have time to devlope or will death win in the end?
Any additional comments?
I think that this story was nicely devloped and the story line was not rushed.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Love this story. I've read it 15 times. Wanted the audio to listen to running around the house. Couldn't even get past cht 4. Will be returning
Who was your favorite character and why?
Anya bc of her overcoming her past
What didn’t you like about Brianna Bronte’s performance?
Some women just do not need to try and play an alpha male she made Delray sound like a little weasel. The story was told in an American accent and Anya sounded like a really bad Russian soap opera. I understand that Anya it's supposed to be foreign but it was so over-the-top. It was distracting
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Coyote's Mate?
I don't know that I could cut anything
I love the premise of having to wait until your mate grows up. To me, this shows patience, especially if you continue to be in the persons life and don't hint at the passion that is awaiting you both. But if course, happy ever after is never guaranteed, because most people have something (family lack, family expectations, dysfunctional childhood, personal dysfunction or family dysfunction) that have to be overcome. And of course when you add in careers, male and female gender roles, pride, lack of communication, poor coping skills and those in so messy emotions you can have a disaster waiting to happen.
Even without the shifter dynamics: this book is a well crafted beautiful disaster of a relationship becoming an amazing cohesive relationship were each member complements the strengths and weaknesses of the other even if that sometimes means going behind the other's back. Adding in the Shifter dynamics and we have another hit for L.L.
