Malek (Whitfell Brothers #1) by Skye R. Richmond


Running from his problems might just lead Axel to his future. 
Axel has done the stupidest thing ever. He kissed his straight best friend at the guy’s stag do and now he’s run away to the Lake District to lick his wounds.
All he wants, in fact, all he's ever wanted is a Prince of his own. 
Who knew running would lead Axel straight to his very own fairytale? No really. His new mate, yeah, that’s a thing, lives in a magical valley and there’s a castle and he’s telling Axel it’s going to be the two of them forever. 
Did Axel mention in this fairytale he can have babies and his mate turns into a wolf? Only it's not a fairytale, it's really happening.
Malek has travelled the world searching for his mate, and now he’s actually here, in Malek’s family’s forest. It’s turning out to be the best day of his life. 
No angst, and lots of fluff.

An MM Shifter Mpreg Romance.

My Rating - 4 Stars!

Skye R Richmond's Malek left me torn. The first book in the Whitfell Brother's series, it's a feel-good shifter romance. It's good, it's enjoyable, and it is devoid of angst. 

If you're looking for heat, this one is pretty damn hot. Malek and Alex certainly know how to steam up the pages. 
My rating is based solely of the fact that I think I wasn't really in the mood for this one. It seemed too easy, too quick. I think I would have preferred at least a little angst. But, it you want a quick, happy shifter romance, this one is perfect for you.

I found myself interested more in the second half of the tale. I enjoy the family, the home, the background of the shifters, and the pregnancy. 

Overall, Malek's just a perfect beach read. It's sweet, tender, and happy all around.
