Already Freakn' Mated by Eve Langlais
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lucky him, he found his mate. Just one teensy, tiny problem. She was already married to someone else.
Meeting the woman of his dreams would have worked a lot better if she didn’t already belong to another man. But Chris wasn’t about to let something like ‘until death do us part’ keep him from claiming his woman. He’ll do anything to win his mate, including throwing his attractive cousin at the pesky husband.
Despite the danger, and her marital status, Jiao can’t help falling for a handsome wolf. Honor says she should stay away, but her curious inner cat is flexing her claws and demanding they claim their man.
But Jiao isn’t the only one falling in love. When her husband finds himself head over heels with a she-wolf, will Sheng do the right thing and end the marriage sham? Or will the past catch up first and bite them?

This was definatly not what I had expected from this book - I wasn't disappointed, but I was thinking something completely different!
Jiao and her brother Sheng had it hard as kids. They were kidnapped along with their parents by a human who ran a shifter's compound. Since Jiao and her family were a rare breed of Smoke Leopards, they were put to use in the compound instead of sold or hunted.
They were now Circus folks.
When Their parents got older, their father was hunted and died. Their mother took her life shortly after. Leaving Sheng to protect his sister. When he had heard that Kaleb, the human ring master was planning on selling Jiao for breeding, he knew it was time to escape.
After 6 years of "freedom" Jiao was so tired of living her life on the run. always looking over her shoulder, and pretending to be married to her brother.
When Sheng finally caved and decided to build a gym in their basement for Jiao to let her cat out on the full moons, because the woods wasn't safe, Jiao decided to take the compromise.
Chris - Naomi’s Brother (from the first book) was the best shifter handyman that was recommended to Sheng. And when Jiao opened the door to find that good looking wolf standing there. she was speechless over how her inner cat tried to claw her way to him. She knew without a doubt this was her mate.
And when Sheng walked up behind her, he knew that something was up between the two.. acting his part as Jiao's husband, he slammed the door in Chris's face.
Chris, knew right away his mate was on the other side of the door, but married?? That complicated things a LOT!
Jiao wanted to be with her mate, but she knew how important it was that they keep their secret to be married. They were in hiding, and there was no way that she would go back to that compound, but this was her mate!?!?!?
What to do what to do??? Chris knew that no matter what, he was going to claim her, but he also knew without a doubt he would never share his mate with another man... so he had to find out more about his mate and their marriage.
The story went on with Chris and Jiao trying to fight their mating instinct, but as we learned from the last 2 books, the mating frenzy just gets stronger and stronger, so keeping these two apart was getting harder and harder for Sheng to do.
When Chris talked to his cousin Gina about his dilemma, she jumped at the chance to help her favorite cousin out. Distracting a married man so Chris could get some time alone with his mate.
It was to Sheng's surprise at how much this crazy she-wolf stirred up his cat. It must be because he had to keep up the part of a married man, not cheating on his wife.. even if it was his sister.. lack of sex must be stirring up his wolf.. yeah that's it :D
Loved that we got 2 HEA stories in this book - once Kaleb showed his ugly face and threatened their loved ones , Sheng and Jiao learned that the Greyson's family looked after their own, and family meant everything to them :)
