A unique mix of wolf, coyote and human, she is revered by many—but preyed upon by others.

  • Val ⚓️ Shameless, Skanky & Bitchy ⚓️
    ***This is finally LIVE, FYI for Breed fans!***Thank you, lawd, Lora Leigh.Thank you for making this not suck and giving Cassie a good story. Cause the stakes were high here, peeps. But let's back up. I read my first Breed book waaaaaaay back in the day. I think I was in college or something. Which isn't bad considering I started reading smut waaaaaaay before it was age-appropriate. We are talking 12 years old here, people. In fact, one of the bo...

    4.5 starsWe finally got Cassies book and it was a fucking good one!! And from the way things ended at least two more books are coming.I don't know if I should say more. We got the mate we wanted, the mating we wanted, we didn't have to wait half the book for them to be together, the sexy times reached epic levels and we had a good plot foiling it all. I could have done with a touch more grovelling but that's just me, I always want more grovel, ca...

  • RachelW (BamaGal)
    Can’t really review this book so far from the release date, so this is mostly random thoughts.The ‘World of the Breeds’ bit at the beginning was terribly heavy-handed, and not particularly true to events in previous books. The prologue was an expansion of the long ago scene on the island in Seth Lawrence’s atrium; expanded (and altered) with new info to fit the needs of this book. That was when most readers figured out who Cassie’s mate...
  • ♔ Jaela ♊ Killer ⚔ QUEEN
    I know most of the reviews will start with “I’ve been waiting for this book since forever”, and it’s very true for each and every one of us. We, the readers that have been following all this saga, have waited for so long to read Cassie’s book.I’ve always wondered who her mate would be, I’ve had my doubts for 2 breeds and I wasn’t disappointed at all with Lora’s choice.The starting was a bit rushed, but soooo very steamy. OMG, I ...
  • Lacey (Booklovers For Life)
    4-4.5 stars – looooved this one. I was new to the Breeds series when I got this galley, so I read the first 4 Breeds books to prepare (I would've read more but there are wayyy too many) and I freaking LOVED Cassie and her mate. This is definitely my favorite Breeds book I've read so far. Cassie is an alpha female to her core and I loved her for it. Cross Breed was sexy without being cringey (how I felt the first couple books were). If you're ne...
  • Beth
    The Breeds is twenty three books in and still going strong. I LOVED finally getting Cassie's story. What can I say, Lora Leigh ROCKED it. Riveting the reader with a captivating and original plot, I couldn't help but read into the wee-hours of the morning because I just couldn't put it down. Sexy, seductive and suspense-filled, don't miss Cassie Sinclair's story in Cross Breeds.I received this ARC copy of Cross Breed from Berkley Publishing Group....
  • Karma♥Bites ^.~
    Read (audio) 03 Oct 2018 (★★)So. 14yrs since we first met Cassie in Elizabeth's Wolf (which, BTW, is still one of my favs in this series). 14yrs. But extended wait makes sense, given that we had to wait for Cassie to grow up, no? 😉No matter how lackluster previous Breeds books have been, there was no way that I would delay or pass on reading this one. Especially since a buddy & I split the pot from a 10yr bet (re: identity of Cassie’s ma...

    Ah Cassie! I’ve waited too long and you need to arrive soon!!Dawn’s Awakening was forever ago! Who is your coyote?! “Love you, halfling,” he whispered. “More than life, I love you.” No, you're crying."Cross Breed" is the story of Cassie and (view spoiler)[ Dog (hide spoiler)]Firstly, PHEW ITS FINALLY HERE!! I've been WAITING for this book since Dawn's Awakening, and it feels like forever later its HERE!!!Secondly.. I KNEW IT!! We we...
  • 1-Click Addict Support Group
    Riveting paranormal suspense…I LOVE this series! I may have mentioned that each time I read the next instalment in this series that has built its characters and storyline through dozens of storylines and even more characters. And all of them, contributing to a world that I get lost in each and every time…Breeds have been fighting for their basic ‘human’ rights for years. To be counted as equal, for their right to live happily. To even exi...

    Fans of the series finally get Cassie’s story, and for those who’ve been paying attention, her mate is not a surprise. As with all these stories, though, things do not go smoothly. Cassie must deal not only with her own mixed feelings but those of friends and colleagues, all while it appears someone is gunning either for her or her new mate.There are a lot of ongoing threads from the series that culminate in this book, and some of them do so ...

Over the decade we have been all patiently waiting for this story, and it is so darn good you guys!Breeds series, is one of my all time favourite series, it has had some ups and downs over the years but it is safe to say this was all round 5 stars, Cassie is everything and more. She is all grown up and she is mated, to her mate! Thank you Lora, thank you for providing us with this kick ass story. The main couple ...
  • Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
    Readers who follow Lora Leigh’s Breed series have been clamoring for Cassie’s story since she first appeared in Elizabeth’s Wolf back in 2005, and its finally here.Cross Breed is all about Cassie and her mate-who will remain unknown in this review for fear of spoilers. While I have known for a couple of years who her mate was going to be, I didn’t know several things about him that come to light in this story.The book is intense, with Cas...
  • Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
    SPOLIER FREECross Breed is book twenty three in the Breeds series by Lora LeighOh my how I’ve waited and anticipated Cassie’s novel. I first feel in love with her as a child in Elizabeth’s Wolf and then she pops back up in other novels throughout the series. She is a hybrid, unique, and many fear her and her gifts. She has been hunted since the day she was born and that will never stop. As for her mate. I had an inkling of who he was and it...
  • Mara
    A few days after and I had to read it again. And unexpectedly liked it more, hence the new rating. As N. said: "The bar was set so high for Cassie’s book it was difficult for anything to actually live up to the expectations".I wouldn't have minded some less smut, and some more plot. That said, this is one of the few series that I keep reading with pleasure and expectations. And now I want K's..I would suggest you to read Sofs' review: it perfec...
  • Lisa - (Aussie Girl)
    Finally Cassie's book which has been fifteen years in the making. With so many hints and storylines over a number of books this instalment came with a lot of expectation... and I'm glad to say that Ms Leigh stayed to the script and everything pretty much fell into place with a resolution that I was completely satisfied with. This series sure has had its ups and downs over the years including numerous publishers, convoluted book order and storyli...
  • Rachaelthebiliophile
    I'd been a fan of this series since I read my first breed book. I collected them in paperbacks and ebooks until the quality degenerated and I quit the series.........then I saw this book and absolutely had to read it.While I've been interested in Cassie's story for years her mate is actually the reason I read this book. For years I've been intrigued by him and would frequently check in just to see if he had a book.Thankfully I wasn't disappointed...

    I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 4 StarsCross Breeds is the 23rd installment of the Breeds series. I need to confess, I read the beginning novels a few times over, up to Megan's Mark, and read the previous release. I can attest to how easy it is to read these novels as a standalone, with little to no confusion and overall with good entertainment value. If you're well-versed in this genre, some things are similar...

    I knew it! Always figured there was something extra about Cassie. I loved her and Dog together. 5 stars
  • Tina Christopher
    Warning: Spoilers!So, I have been waiting for this book since first picking up "Elizabeth's Wolf". It is always tough when you have a character you love and really want to read her story. It doesn't always work out.In this instance Cassie's story was fast-paced, action-packed, and filled with a few surprises, but overall I am not quite satisfied. Things just didn't quite come together for me. There were moments that felt overly dramatic and as if...
  • Jen (That's What I'm Talking About)
    SPOILER ALERT!!!!If you don’t want to know who Cassie’s mate is then do NOT read my review!As a long-time fan of the Breed series, I’ve been waiting for Cassie’s book since the first whisper of her mate in Dawn’s Awakening. It’s been hinted at throughout subsequent books, and I’m happy to report Ms. Leigh does not disappoint. If you haven’t figured it out by now, YES, Dog is her mate, and he’s waited six years to claim what is h...

    OMFG. Jesus H. CHRIST. After 13 years since her debut, Cassie finally, FINALLY gets her mate. And what a Mating it was! Thank you, Lora, for giving Cassie an amazing story. I admit I haven’t enjoyed the recent breeds books...I was really just biding my time until you published Cassie’s book, then Dane’s...I was even scared this would be as lackluster as the previous books...But golly did it entertain me. Dog was perfect. Cassie was perfect....

    It's about time! Knowing that Cassie was FINALLY getting her own book I picked the series back up a few months ago and got caught up. I'm glad I did. Cassie and (view spoiler)[Dog's (hide spoiler)] story was 6 years in the making. Well 6 years for them but about 10 years for fans of the series. A few long unanswered questions in the series were answered, but of course, many more still need to be answered. Plus a few new ones popped up. It's been ...

  • Handcrafted Librarian
    This story was a long time coming! As a dedicated reader of Lora Leigh's Breeds series, I've been waiting for Cassie's story for quite some time. If you're familiar with the series, we met Cassie when she was a young girl and she orchestrated the relationship between her mother Elizabeth in the third book of the Breed series, Elizabeth's Wolf. Since then we've seen her grow up throughout the other novels to eventually become a force in defending ...

    ***This and other reviews can be found at ****ARC*As a fan of the Breeds series for years, I have been anxiously awaiting Cassie’s story, the princess of the Breeds, the hybrid, the most valuable Breed some may say. While I was anxiously awaiting her story, I was also worried that the pedestal that I put her story up on wouldn’t live up once I read her book and discovered who her mate was. Well while I won’...
