While I wanted to smack the heads of Demyan and Chellack together for being such idiots eventually they got there and it wasn't a bad read. The second and third books Got me to chuckle. This book on the other hand had me wanting to throw my ereader. It features several characters from previous stories whose personalities all seem to have gone for a spin on a weathercock. One even using insults that bring down his own mate. The main love interest is nothing but an abusive ass alternating with... No he's just an abusive ass who seems to be out to destroy the his mate. Loving and then in a rage. It reads like the author couldn't decide which way to go with it. If I hadn't already bought book 5 this would make me pass on it as it is... I still might pass on reading it.

2.5 Stars ~ I honestly don’t think I’ve ever given a Stormy Glenn book this low of a rating, and had I read this book back when I read the first three in the series I’m sure my rating would be higher. Unfortunately, I just can’t. The level of misogyny represented by Hassan and sheer assholeness is out of this world and I was terribly disappointed.

I may never reread those first 3 books since my opinion now might just be gravely different from what it was originally.

4 CUPS: "Rayne has been mistreated since the death of his beloved father. He seeks to escape those who abuse him and would also use him to ensure their own monetary future. The only way he can escape the evil is to sign his happiness over to another man who is a complete stranger. Hassan figured he would never find a mate after the death of his wife. He had closed himself off to the possibility, until the day he receives a note from the one who wishes to contract with him and give birth to future children. Hassan and Rayne had very different ideas regarding their future, and initial plans are forced to change by life and the unexpected emotions which grow between them. Rayne thinks he has finally found happiness until the day evil graces their door step and his past is back to destroy his future. Heart Mate is an outstanding futuristic novel which could almost pass for historical. I found the blend seamless and easily missed if one were less diligent. Ms. Glenn shows off her amazing talent through character development and story flow. I started reading and before I knew it I was at the end and scrambling to find something else by Ms. Glenn to read." -- Delane, Coffee Time Romance & More

Excerpt

“Please, blow out the candle.” 

Hassan watched Rayne for a moment before he reached over to snuff out the candle, plunging the room into darkness. Hassan again reached for the buttons of Rayne’s pants, this time hesitating before unbuttoning them.

“I’ll do it.” Rayne stood up and unbuttoned his pants. Although the light in the room had been extinguished, the moonlight streaming through the windows provided Hassan with a perfect view of Rayne’s nearly naked body.

As Rayne started pushing his pants down his legs, Hassan’s whole body seemed to be filled with anticipation. He couldn’t tear his gaze from Rayne’s profile. His body was as eager and erratic as a summer storm.

Rayne dropped the pants to the floor and quickly covered his groin with his hands. He inhaled sharply when Hassan leaned forward and grabbed him. In one forward motion, Hassan pulled Rayne into his arms, resting his face against the smooth skin of his abdomen.

Hassan ran his hands up Rayne’s back and down to grasp his ass cheeks. Hassan inhaled Rayne’s sweet scent, his passion running rampant. “Oh, mayht,” he whispered against Rayne’s soft skin, “you don’t know how much I want you.”

A quiver surged through Hassan’s veins when he felt Rayne’s fingers clench in his hair. Somewhere, in the back of his mind, he knew that he needed to give Rayne more time. But for now, touching him was the only thing he wanted to think about.

Hassan slid his hands across Rayne’s silken belly and up his stomach to his chest to gently caress the little brown-hued disks there. Hassan’s pulse surged when the soft nipples puckered in response. Blood pounded in his brain.

Feeling Rayne’s body tremble, Hassan wrapped his strong arms around Rayne and pulled his mate onto his lap, pulling Rayne’s legs apart to straddle his thighs. The feel of Rayne’s bottom pressed against his hard cock sent his senses reeling.

Hassan could barely contain himself as he quickly reached down to untie his breeches and free his aching cock. His breathing became sharp and rapid as he felt Rayne’s fingers caress the strong tendons in the back of his neck.

Hassan rolled over, pushing Rayne’s body beneath his on the sofa cushions. Rayne’s body squirmed beneath his. Hassan explored the soft lines of Rayne’s back, his waist, and his narrow hips. His lips explored the tight muscles of Rayne’s panting chest. Instinctively, Rayne’s body arched toward Hassan’s as if begging for more.

Hassan quickly grabbed the small vial of oil out of his pocket and lubed his fingers. He leaned back and looked into Rayne’s eyes as he reached behind the man and started readying the way for his claim.

Rayne’s eyes widened, a soft inhale of breath falling from his lips. But he never looked away from Hassan. A soft moan escaped Rayne’s lips. That sweet sound was all it took to throw Hassan over the edge.

His tormented groan was all the warning he gave Rayne thrusting into the man’s tight ass. He was carried away on a wave of ecstasy with one push of his hips.
