Francine's loved Mitchell, a wolf like herself, since she first set eyes on him back when they were just kids. However, Mitchell's never seen her as more than another annoying sister. Determined to make him realize she's all grown up, she enlists the aide of Alejandro, a gorgeous cat shifter. She never counted on wanting them both.

Alejandro knows Francine is special from the first moment he meets the fiery plump wolf, which is why he suggests she use him to make Mitchell jealous. A great plan, especially if it means he gets to kiss those luscious lips. One taste, though, and he's addicted, but how does he make her see past the man she loves to realize she's also meant to be his mate?

For a long time now, Mitchell's been avoiding Francine, his bratty sister's friend. However, the little girl he remembers is all grown up, and when he sees her in the arms of another, a need to claim her overrides all his common sense. But, he's waited too long and fate has decided that he's going to have to share. Can he bend enough to accept Francine with her other man, or will his freakn' jealousy send him running? 

Jealous and Freakin' is the second book in the Freakin' Shifters series by  Ms. Langlais.  Having read the first one, Delicate Freakin' Flower, I would say that both can be read as a stand alone novel.  As you can see from the synopsis, this book does involve some menage scenes.  They were beautifully and tastefully written.  I liked the characters, especially Alejandro. Once he figured out what he wanted, he went all in to get it for himself.  I like that in a man. Mitchell, I will admit, had to grow on me.  I'm also not sure I am convinced of the harmony between the trio in the end.  I liked the trio's relationship in the first book, more. 

The shifter world that Ms. Langlais has set up is a great one.  I like the sense of community among the shifters and how they set up their environments.  I like the idea that they pretty much know instantly who their mate is that fate has set them up with, whether they chose to accept it or not.  I would like to know more about the shifters and how they become who they are.  Like, what kind of animal would a wolf and a bear make?  Can a human be transformed? Maybe in later books...

This is a great addition to the series and I look forward to the next book, Already Freakin'  Mated, coming in spring of 2012.

About the author:

I'm writing romance the way I like it--hot with a touch of paranormal fun. I enjoy reading and writing stories that push the envelope of what we consider normal, and I love to push boundaries--and in some cases totally smash them. I tend to have a lot of sexual tension in my tales as I think all torrid love affairs start with a tingle in our tummies. My heroes are very male, you could even say border line chest thumping at times. So if you want a truly sensitive man, I am not for you. But that said, my men will do almost anything for the one they love. Even babysit.

Wow, I think this sounds like an amazing story. I have not yet read any of Eve Langlais Books yet, but I would love to! I am a huge fan of werewolf novels and this reminds me a bit of Casscadia Wolves. I would love to win and spread the word!!
