Former assassin Rex realizes retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be without someone to share it with. He longs for the kind of connection his friends Hunter and Casey have. Tired of meaningless hookups, Rex and his wolf are ready to find their mate. But what if his mate is the human-were bunny shifter his former boss placed in his care? Can he win the heart of this fierce and beautiful man?
Abducted and genetically altered against his will, Aaron is thrust into a world he'd thought was only make-believe. Under the protection of a Minnesota wolf pack, he struggles with his new abilities as a rabbit shifter and his growing attraction for his cocky protector. Can he trust the former assassin to keep him safe and find his brother still being held captive by the evil group responsible for changing his life forever?

Rex is retired assassin, beta in his new pack and lonely. He sees the happiness his friend and alpha enjoys with his mate and while he isn't quite jealous, he is envious. And then he smells home. Too bad the scent is associated with prey. Who would have thought the other half of his soul would reside in the body of a bunny shifter? But his wolf isn't quite getting that connection.
I thoroughly enjoyed REX'S MATE by V. S. Morgan. I mean putting predator and prey together was a bit unexpected and I think Ms. Morgan handled it quite well. Aaron is battered but not broken. He has had his humanity stripped from him and he is struggling to accept the changes because of it.
While you do not need to read Hunter's Mark, you will appreciate the subtleties of Rex if you have. This story builds upon the world Rex inhabits and gives a point of reference. Rex is no longer one of Den Mother's assassins but the ties that bind are not easily severed, in a good way. I loved that in spite of Rex's retired status, he was willing to step to the plate and help. His motives may have been murky and a bit self-serving but you knew that was just these particular circumstance, he would help even if he had no benefit.
Ms. Morgan wove a tale of loyalty, honor and love. It was a quick read but fully developed and well thought out. I enjoyed both Rex and Aaron. Ms. Morgan understood that Aaron had a right to struggle and she showed that while Rex and Aaron were meant for each other, getting there would not be easy. I can't wait to see where she will take us as we meet more of these assassins with a heart.
