In fact, one study found that certain female beetles mount each other to look larger and attract more male mates. The frequency of homosexual behavior in the insect world also remains unclear; however, more cases have been observed in the lab than in the field. This could indicate that the behavior occurs during stressful or isolating conditions, Scharf said, but more work is needed to confirm this idea. And while the possibility that any sort of sexual encounter could induce pleasure in insects may seem unlikely, Scharf does not rule it out.
The team next hopes to conduct experimental studies on a species of beetle to determine how homosexual behavior affects different aspects of the animal's life, and whether the behavior is linked to any other specific types of behaviors.

As if that isn't insulting enough, the idea of purity is implied in a twisted version of patriarchal virginity.
So, this is a double slam against gays and women. And the author is advocating some nasty gender roles, which just really rubs me wrong. Jun 22, V rated it really liked it. Even when I wanted to slap Tristan many times during the story, I found it pretty good.
A little bit different from other shifters stories, perhaps that what makes it so enjoyable. I look forward to purchase the sequels. Jun 22, Candice rated it liked it Shelves: m-m , kindle , shifter-paranormal. What in the actual fuck happened?! What happened to Tristan?
He seemed so nice in Pierce's Choice I believe that's the book he was in. Then it turns out he's a Grade-A asshole : Jake deserved better. I really dislike Tristan and that makes me mad, because I thought I liked him. I thought him and Jake would be perfect together, but I was wrong :.

Jake has been dealing with many things that are weighing heavy on his mind and heart, view spoiler [from his unrequited love for his best friend, Pierce, to his recent actions of having to kill his own father to protect his friends hide spoiler ] , so he feels like he needs 4 Stars At the end of Pierce's Choice , tiger shifter Jake Trenton decides to leave the Smooth Rock Falls pack and start over with the Fraser Lake wolf pack after being offered sanctuary by the packs new alpha, Tristan Massey.
Meanwhile, Tristan is struggling to deal with his new role as alpha of the Fraser Lake pack. This is a harrowing task, considering the last alpha left the pack in such disarray, with pack finances in the red and pack lands being depleted of game for the wolves to hunt. But with the help of his best friend and beta, Chris, Tristan works tirelessly to turn things around for the pack and, hopefully, with time and patience, the Fraser Lake pack will begin to thrive once again. On top of everything, Tristan is being pressured by the elder council to choose a mate and fast, because the strain of being an alpha can be highly alleviated with the help of a mating bond.
But after considering his female options, he comes to realise that there is only one pack member who he wants to be with — a certain shy, slightly geeky, new tiger member. When Tristan shares his troubles and expresses his feelings to Jake, they quickly fall into bed together for a night of passion which ends with an accidental mating. Tristan reacts with panic, and even though he cares deeply for Jake and wants Jake for his mate , he asks Jake to help him hide the fact that they are now a mated pair. The rest of the story had me want to continually smack Tristan for not manning up and claiming Jake as "his" to the pack.
Luckily, and unsurprisingly, Tristan finally gets his shit together and the two get their HEA, much to my delight. As mentioned earlier, the main characters of Accidentally Mated , Jake and Tristan, were both introduced in the Pack Mates 5th book Pierce's Choice , with Jake playing a major role in the overall story.
I truly feel like readers would be doing themselves a disservice if they were to simply dive into this one without all the background information the Pack Mates series provides about many of the characters that are featured here.

I was so glad that Jake was getting his happily ever after, after all of the pain and sorrow he had been through in the past. Jake is a sweet, gentle tiger who recently had his heart broken. Tristan is the Alpha of the Fraser Lake Pack and is determined to be the Alpha they need to rise above the situation they are in now, even if it means mating for the wrong reasons.
However, the pull he feels towards Jake keeps getting in the way of what he considers his duty to his pack. If you enjoy a good MM book with sexy Alphas, the men they fall for, and some suspense, I recommend anything by Lynn Tyler. I love her Pack Mate's Series, and this new series did not disappoint! The part I most liked wass that there was no insta-love stuff here. The relationship grew a bit slower than that, at least; and with the mate-bond, it seemed natural.
I also liked how there wasn't an instant, general homophobia inbred in most of the shifter populations.
The part I was most annoyed by is that even though this is book 1 in this series, there was a lot of backstory and other couples from one or more previous series of books featured not quite lightly in this story, making me feel lik The part I most liked wass that there was no insta-love stuff here. The part I was most annoyed by is that even though this is book 1 in this series, there was a lot of backstory and other couples from one or more previous series of books featured not quite lightly in this story, making me feel like I'd missed out on quite a bit.
I recommend it if you're looking for something other than the usual shifter story. Jun 16, Chris rated it it was amazing. This was the first in a new series but still in the same world as Ms. Tyler's Pack Mates series. While you can read Accidentally Mated by itself you will get more enjoyment if you have read the Pack Mates series before.
Mistakenly Mated book. Read 12 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Curiosity only kills cats, right?Kerry never expected to have a. Accidentally Mated book. Read 92 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Tristan Massey didn't set out to become the alpha of Fraser Lake.
This was an excellent addition and I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the paranormal romance.

It's been a few weeks since I read this, I'm so behind on reviews.
First I need to point out the complete ridiculousness of the "gold star gay" scene. What I thought about the book. In the beginning I was on board. I felt so bad for Jake that I just wanted to hug him and I thought Tristan was just what he needed. Unfortunately, Tristan was an asshole. After the way he treated Jake, I just didn't have a fuck to give about him. Maybe that's harsh but Jake is this sweet, caring, submissive personality that took a chance on Tristan and Tristan just crushed him.
I understand Tristan was under pressure from the ruling council but it was just too much. I wanted Jake to leave and find someone that deserved him, but we know that doesn't happen in PNR matings. This is stated as 1 in the series, but because of the information that we are presumed to know, I think there must be a companion series. I might pick up the next book depending on who the MCs turn out to be. Oct 07, Hc rated it liked it Shelves: mm , yearreview , shifters-cat , shifters-canine , pub-self , shifters , library.

This could indicate that the behavior occurs during stressful or isolating conditions, Scharf said, but more work is needed to confirm this idea. White wolves, like her, are considered cursed.
It felt like the editing needed a little bit more work.. Other than that I don't have a lot of errors standing out now. The story.. I do feel confused about pack relations towards omegas vs. And Tristan But Jake.. No falling almost immediately into bed going on here.
Note: I've been reminded this is spin off from Pack Mates series, which helps explain a few things. However, I didn't make the connection during reading, except a vague sense of familiarity and don't remember Tristan mentioned without backtracking with a skim read.
Aug 28, Tailtiu rated it really liked it. So I really enjoyed this one. It got me in the feels. Granted Tristan was a bit of a jerk to Jake ok maybe more than a jerk , but I really liked Jake and I felt for him. He's hidden his nature for so long and subjugated what he wanted for other people.
