Claiming His Fate, by Ellis Leigh | Book Review #176

Claiming His Fate by Ellis Leigh is an Adult Paranormal-Shifter Romance. There are sexy steamy scenes, so if you decide to read this book and you don’t like sex, you have been warned.

23998607Rebel Lynch has spent two hundred years searching for balance between his human side and his inner wolf. As a den President of The Feral Breed Motorcycle Club, a lack of control over the beast within isn’t just a pain in the ass, it’s a death sentence. One served by his club brothers: the judges, jury, and executioners of the wolf-shifting community.

At Amnesia Gentlemen’s Club, customers and staff check their real-world identities at the door. Charlotte, one of the club’s best waitresses, ditched her legit career in corporate IT because she needs the kind of income those pesky IRS folks can’t track. When the smart-mouthed bombshell pulls a gig serving a private party, she expects nothing more than a few extra tips. That is until dirty-talking Rebel Lynch strolls into the room looking like sin incarnate, flashing motorcycle club colors, and blasting Charlotte’s expectations about work, life, and love straight to hell.

One glance at Charlotte and Rebel knows she’s his fated mate. But a wolf shifter is attacking women at the club, threatening Charlotte’s life, and putting the entire shifter community at risk of exposure. Rebel and his Feral Breed MC brothers must find the crazed shifter before he strikes again. If Rebel can’t uncover the new monster in their midst—and learn to rein in the protective instincts of a fully mated Alpha—his future with Charlotte will be dead on arrival.


Claiming His Fate by Ellis Leigh is a book that I had no expectations for. I don’t mean that in a derogatory way… I mean it in the sense that I had no idea what to expect, and as I read this story, I was pleasantly surprised by everything that had occured.

So throughout the book, there are two points of view that alternate with each chapter. These views are from Rebel, who we meet in the first chapter, and secondly from Charlotte, who we have the pleasure of meeting in the second chapter. From there on we see the story from their incredibly different views on things. There are some disagreements and there are agreements. Each met with an unrelenting will.

Rebel is an Alpha male in charge of his own pack. In this Rebel seems very cocky and assured of himself. I’ve heard somewhere that there’s a difference between being confident and being indifferent. Rebel seems to be the kind of guy who is indifferent to a lot of things, yet he cares about people and his bikes. I know he cares about people and what happens to a few of them, I just can’t nail him down completely.

Charlotte is the character who goes through some stuff. She has to take care of her brother and when a certain someone asks someone a very important question, as much as she wants to say yes, Charlotte thinks of her responsibilities. She refuses to leave her life to follow him around; which she shouldn’t, and I’m beyond happy that this was pointed out in the book.

Claiming His Fate is part of a series, even though you should read this a standalone. I’m fairly certain that the next book features a different character. One who I am very much interested in reading about.

I ended up giving Claiming His Fate 3 of 5 stars on Goodreads.

Happy Reading!
