Initially I was disappointed that the second book in the MATE FOR SALE series was just a continuation of Vaughn and Andy's mating / mpreg story. I thought maybe a different Human would be selected from one of the Institutions for Selling/Buying Mates in each book. Then I just settled down and listened to the book on my way to & from work. And I really enjoyed it. Watching the newly mated couple's relationship deepen was sweet.
Since this was an erotic romance there is an emphasis on the couple's intimate & tender moments. I haven't read an Erotic romance in awhile so it was a bit surprising how much emphasis was placed on sex in both this book and the first book. These erotic interludes actually show an important aspect of the couple's relationship that demonstrates how they initially bonded with one another, how compatible they were physically, why they were both possessive of each other and jealous of others interacting with their "mate". It was a way of reaffirming their bond after something stressful occurred and a source of comfort being entwined together.
Both Vaughn and Andy's jerk brothers slither their way into this story. The responses the brothers met from Vaughn and Andy were very different. Vaughn makes an effort to patch up his relationship with his Beta and best friend, Bruin. The driving storyline is Andy's pregnancy and it's emotional impact on him, Vaughn, Bruin, and Ervin (Vaughn's brother).
It's finally mentioned that the servants & others that assist with the house and grounds are mostly Human. Which greatly impacts the security of the residents of the manor. It's always interesting to see how an author handles the delivery of babies following a mpreg. In this book it is was very tense and nerve wracking.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn of another Human who felt his only option was to put himself up for sale to pay his debts or risk being arrested and placed in one of those Institutions against his will because he couldn't pay his creditors. This meant another intriguing storyline for Book 3, which I already purchased a long with Book 4 in the series.
