People that enjoy the coarser sexual adventure would enjoy this I imagine.
For me, I felt that this story could have held it's own without so much racy content. Just a little of that goes a long way in my book. I love books that aren't so graphic about sexuality.
understandable smooth erotic
The love story.
I love how she calls Trey "Flinstone", and laughed so hard when Dominick stated he was no Flinstone but he can make her bedrock! That was classic! I also enjoy the smart comments throughout the story between Trey's grandmother Gretta and his mate.
She clearly separated the characters in story.
YES Most Definitely!
I am looking forward to book # 2 and the rest of the series.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: Contemporary, obviously an alternate reality
Genre: Paranormal romance/erotica
3 1/2 stars
Gist of the story is, Taryn is from a wolf shifter pack, but she is latent, so she can't shift. Her father arranges a marriage to the gorgeous and charming Roscoe. But Roscoe pegs Taryn's creep-o-meter, so when Trey, the gorgeous and reputedly half-crazy Alpha of the Phoenix pack proposes a short marriage of convenience she accepts. His motivation is that he needs a mate to lend him credibility, which he needs to prevent his previous pack from absorbing the Phoenix through political machinations. Intrigue, sex, and violence ensue.
The story could have been tightened up without effecting the plot line, but it kept my interest anyway.
Jill Redfield provides a creditable narration. She doesn't do that obviously fake baritone for the males, and her females don't go into odd registers. She uses subtle inflection and pacing to differentiate the characters.
This is a credit-worthy listen
Hell yes , jill redfield takes this book to another level !
She Can put the story to life
The story is super funny and hot and jill is proberbly the Best narrator I' ve listened too
The book is well written and read.
Yummy and menacing.:)
I love this book from the first word to the last!
I laughed all the way through.
Picked up this book under the non-fiction section and was caught off guard by the sex scene. I still like the story line and thought the narrator did a great job.
R rated or X rated, take your pick. This book is not a YA werewolf romance. It's hard core sex, but has it's place in this love story of two very strong alpha wolves. What I like about Taryn, is that she was a strong character, so none of that whiny female always doing the wrong thing and misinterpreting everything going on around her. This female is bold, hardened from her upbringing, but not without her problems. Trey tends to easily go feral from his unfortunate upbringing, until Taryn calms him and his wolf. Not a bad story as the couple form an alliance with their own personal motives, that we all know will eventually end with true love.
Oh My God!
The reader (or listener) is inside the minds of the two main characters allowing the internal struggle to be felt from both points of view.
This was my first listen of this reader. Ms. Redfield is excellent at her craft as she reads the steamy scenes that have me blushing (I checked).
I actually have never heard sex scenes that graphically represented, it was a very nice surprise. The story that went with them helped me to become attached to the characters beyond the carnal escapades.
Onto Book 2.
#1 with a bullet!
When Taryn finally gives herself over to Trey.
You can completely visualize the characters and the scenery! Amazing!
in terms of plot, this book lacks strongly. basically, what you learn early on about the general plot from the summary is what you should expect. There is 1 mystery that i had a fun time trying to guess, yet I was underwhelmed when the mystery was resolved. What made me dislike the book was the dominant/submissive personalities.
Basically the main female lead is a dominant type, meaning she wont give in to anyone, and since shes an alpha as well, not even her own alpha can command her to do anything. this all carries into sex, where the female lead is fighting and cursing her alpha while lusting and wanting sex. its a retarded thing because after all that fighting and cursing(quite colorful cursing I might add), she is content and sexually sated. its it gives off the impression that this book is aimed at women with rape fetishes. it makes no sense at all when your listening and it ultimately makes half the book less interesting. skip this one as its crap...
