My wolf hid my fated mates—until the moon goddess forced our mating.
As Alpha of the Central Pack, I know we are the weakest link in the alliance, but I will stop at nothing to prove our worth and rebuild from our shameful and brutal past.
Along the way I fell for Adalyn and Nico, but stayed away, thinking they were fated for each other—and never me.
When a mating bond is forced on us, our worlds collide and now we must survive in this new fated life where rules break and the heat between us boils over.
Only Valac’s revenge over losing his mate in our previous battles take danger to a new level and if I’m not careful, I’ll lose my two mates before I even get a chance to make them fall for me like I have for them.
And if we’re not careful, the darker danger hiding in the shadows might break us all. As Valac’s master is waiting. And he’s closer than we think.
Mated in Chaos is the third book in the adult paranormal romance series called Aspen Pack by Carrie Ann Ryan. Though this is the third book in the series, it can be read by itself, because each of the books follows a different couple. While I didn’t have any trouble picking up and diving into this world when I started with book two, I think I might recommend reading the books in order because you will learn more background on the various packs and the ties and issues between them. Not reading book one didn’t hinder my ability to read and enjoy books 2 and 3, but I do kind of wish I had read them in order because I can tell there is a plot thread that was continued from the first book and will continue on in the next book.
Mated by Chaos is the story of Cole, Adalyn and Nico. Cole is the alpha of the central pack, which is cool because it puts the focus on a different pack than the last story. I really am enjoying watching more pieces of the larger world fall into place. Cole has always been drawn to Adalyn and Nico but he has always assumed that the two of them were destined for each other and not for him. Mated in Chaos features a throuple, which is always unique and I dug their story.
This is a great series if you are a fan of fated mates, shifter romances and possessive heroes. I can’t wait to read the other books in the Aspen Pack series! In addition to the romance, there is also a lot of action that takes place in this installment. The central pack is also known as the cursed ones, and they are not short on enemies. This book felt explosive from the first page to the last and I loved how fast paced and action packed it was. This was a great installment in the Aspen Pack series, and I can’t wait for more.
