Synopsis:
Victoria is floundering. She's lost her home, her boyfriend, everything... rather than go back to her parents with her tail tucked between her legs, or inconvenience her best friend, she decides to take matters into her own hands.

When she comes across a mating app, Tori thinks she may have just found a way to solve all of her problems, and maybe, just maybe, find love along the way.

A trial period with Mal, the sexy bear shifter who contacted her seems like the answer. But, when she gets there and realizes it's not only Mal she's there to meet, but also his best friend Kai, will this opportunity be more than this human bargained for?

Swipe Right to Mate is the first in a new trilogy by DJ Bryce and Terra Wolf. This is a menage standalone about a desperate woman finding exactly what she needs, where she least expects it.
Shapeshifters and their own version of a dating app?? Yeah, I so wanted to see what this one was about.  It's a quick fun, raunchy romp into a romance that has a paranormal slant to it.  In this world, shifters are out (no mention if vamps exist in this world ) and humans know of their existence. In an attempt to aide the shifters in finding mates from across the globe they created a dating app where shifters post about their mating desires and give the applicants the chance to meet and see if their animals accept the mates.

Having just lost her home to a lying bastard, and being cut off by her family for making choices they don't agree with Victoria figures it couldn't hurt to see what the fuss is about with shifters. After all, everyone knows that they are some of the best lovers, extremely protective and want families, all of which she wants including the loyalty. I was intrigued by the concept and found myself reading this extremely quickly.

The characters were fun to read. Mal and Kai are best friends who raised each other since they were cubs.  They have created for themselves a good job, built an amazing home and now it's time to find a mate.  Mal signs up for the dating app and makes the connection to Victoria and our story unfolds from there. It's interesting to watch the dynamic between the three as they learn to navigate this strange new existence. As they do they share their journey with their friends and start to build a good relationship.  I really loved that each of the men had distinct personalities, and created distinct relationships with Victoria.  The sexy moments between them as single couples and as a menage were amazing, they were very hot moments between Victoria and both Kai and Mal.  There were many sweet moments and a few funny moments not just between the men and Victoria but between the en themselves. I loved seeing their teasing and how comfortable they were together


I loved Tori's friendship with her best friend who is really honest with her about her feelings and about what Tori is about to do. Even though she's worried she still backs her play and helps her when she needs her.  There is a bit of an adventure when the past catches up to Tori in the most unexpected way. It's great to see the community come to her aide the way it did. 
I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series including their friends attempt at the dating app. It's going to be interesting because he's got some ideas that aren't going to hold water for very long.  This was a fun, sexy new concept to shifters finding their mates and I enjoyed it immensely. 

Coming soon in the series...
