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 getting 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 running from Francine, certain she’s mistaken that their destiny’s lie together. 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 and another man, or will his jealousy keep him freakn’?

Khelsey’s Thoughts:

Jealous And Freakn’ is the second book in Eve Langlais’ Freakn' Shifters series and follows Francine, Mitchell, and Alejandro. If you read the first book, Delicate Freakn' Flower, then you will remember Francine as Naomi's best friend. Here readers get to delve a bit deeper into their friendship and I just love their dialogue together, it makes me want a friendship like that!
Naomi, who is very pregnant with twins, is having a baby shower and Francine is on her way there when her car breaks down. Thankfully though, Francine hears a motorcycle approaching and recognizes its driver. But there is a problem with this mode of transportation, where will Francine put her gift?
Well Alejandro has an answer to that; he can hold it while she holds on to him. Problem solved, right? Well not quite, because when Francine touches Alejandro her wolf instantly wants him. But how can that be when her wolf has already connected to Mitchell?
I love how Mitchell reacts to Alejandro, like a jealous boyfriend although he still claims to think of her only as a sister. He doesn’t realize how badly he wants Francine until he sees her in the arms of someone else. And Alejandro is quite the charmer, a smooth talker who knows how to get what he wants.
Jealous And Freakn’ can easily be read as a stand-alone and I like how Eve Langlais set it up, her writing style is very smooth. However, I did feel like hitting Mitchell as he tried to fight his feelings for Francine, a lot. And though I liked the characters, I didn't enjoy them as much as the first books cast. 



Khelsey's Rating: I would give this book a 3.5

I've been wanting to read this book for very long already, and because this is by Langlais, I want to read it even more! Haha, and you make me want to read it even more! But you said the first book's better? So I should start with book one even though book two can work as a standalone?

Great review! I'm liking all three of them already.:P
