Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
This book definitely followed the recipe for a great paranormal romance book - super sexy alpha males, kick-butt action, lots of steamy sex, awesome supporting characters and plenty of preternatural politics. Add to that great narration and some hilarious one liners and you get Feral Sins. What a great listen! I'm giving this one 4 stars for the snarky comments and hilarious one liners alone.
This book is not for the faint of heart or for those of you that shy away from steamy sex scenes. This one has an abundance of sex, dirty talk and then some. So know what your getting yourself into first.
....Make you cry, some make you laugh, others make you sigh...This book gives you the whole shebang! I have a special feeling for books that get me chortling as I listen to them.
On the surface this is your run of the mill werewolf romance but the writing is just plain good!!. The main female character is strong and so witty you can't help but giggle all through the book.
Can't wait for more from this author and narrator!
Oh and the intimate scenes are HOT!.
OK. I have to admit that this novel is very hot. The sex is very hot. The story is actually not too bad for a typical paranormal erotic romance novel. (I don't like formula novels - it's a love-hate thing for me. I am a romantic, but I don't agree with most of the formula story lines and long for stories that are more original.)
No comment, really. It's pretty easy to predict what an ending will be in this kind of novel.
I don't think I've heard her before. The narration was very good.
Um, well. I don't think I'll discuss it in public!
I was bothered by the possession / dominance of the story. This seems to be typical in most romance novels. Personally, I don't get it and I'm disturbed by the encouragement of painting women as being strong ---but in the end want to find a man to submit to and even if they verbally say they don't want something in the end they really do. This one really pushed that far with the whole Alpha Wolf male. I often found myself feeling a bit creeped out.

This was an enjoyable listen - the actual story was engaging and the narration enhanced the story.
However, anyone looking for romance should probably skip the sex scenes. While well written -- and they are well written -- the acts depicted read more like rape fantasy enactment pornographic sex than romantic sex. I believe the kink community calls it "consensual non-consent". There's also a male on female sodomy scene that's just as graphic as the rest of the sex. If those hit your "off" spots, fast forward is you friend - the rest of the story makes up for it.
And in case you're wondering, the difference between porno sex and romantic sex is (1) how much the sex is about physical satisfaction versus emotional satisfaction, and (2) whether there's any lead up to the sex (as in, enjoying the skin-to-skin for it's own sake) or just wham-bam, let's get to the money shot, scream-for-me-baby.
Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.
I know that I will be listening to this audiobook again! I had previously read the book when it was self-published and was waiting for the audiobook so I was very happy that it exceeded my expectations. The narrarator was great and really got into the characters. I am anxiously awaiting the next audiobook in the seriesto be released. I can't wait.
Sexy, Sarcastic and Wolftastic
I have to say my favorite part of this book is the shifter aspect. I think the author did a really good job of portraying the pack mentality. Also the overall development of the alpha wolves was good. A lot happened in this book and that was one of the main things I liked about. OH also the main character was such a strong character and soooo sarcastic all the time. I loved it!
I really liked her. She definitely grew on me as the story progressed. I thought she did a particularly good job portraying Taryn. She pulled off the sarcastic lines very well. She did a great job on the whole thing. I could really hear the emotions of the characters through the narration.
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
I started reading this book because of the reviews that I read. Majority of them praised the Suzanne for being a fantastic story teller. I’m extremely happy I decided to plug in my ear buds and listen. The main characters of the story are amazing; Taryn and Trey are both wolf shifters.
Taryn is a sarcastic, no nonsense, latent wolf shifter that doesn’t tolerate anyone’s crap. Being a latent wolf shifter means she is unable to shift into her wolf form, which people tend to mistake as a weakness. It is not. I think this gives her more strength to prove herself as a wolf shifter and an alpha female.
Trey is an alpha male of his own pack. He was label as a psychotic wolf early in life because he has a tendency to become feral when in his wolf form. When Trey is feral the animal nature overrides his humanity and he loses Trey within the wolf. He was exiled from his pack by his own father as a kid and forced to grow up fast, to lead his own pack.
The plot, Taryn is unwillingly forced into an engagement that she didn’t chose nor does she want. Trey is in need of some very strong and powerful allies, which Taryn father has both. They decided to help each other with their individual problems.
The story keeps at an excited pace, that doesn’t let the listener get bored or drift off from the book. There is tons of humor and witty dialogue that kept me laughing to myself throughout the book. The interaction between Taryn and Trey’s grandmother is priceless. There are a lot of romance scenes and graphic language throughout the book that I really enjoyed. Some might think they were too excessive but not me.
I enjoyed listening to Jill narration of the book. I think she did a good job distinguishing the voices of the different characters within the book. I hope she does the narration for book 2, as well.
I am Who I am; and you are Who you are...so lets leave it at that.
Where should I start. Well I got the book because its romance and paranormal two of my favorite things. (And let get real the price was not bad at all.)
The herion of the story is great. She is snarky and takes no lip from no one. She reminds of me:0) The series will be like other romances but what draws you in are the characters. There is a tragic alpha with a sad back story and the same sad back story for the herion. They need to learn how to open up with one another. Sound familiar. Well it is a romance. It is how the story is told. Well I think they did a pretty good job. There is also a lot naughtyness going on but again romance. The writer introduces a lot of character so I believe the series will be a long one. It kinda reminds me of the Christine Warrens series "the others" but this one only has werewolves. I enjoyed how they did not take a lot time explaining how "humans" know about them. I think it takes away from the characters' love affair when they start talking about how socity reacts to the paranormal. They also did not wallow in the unhappy childhoods the characters had.
All in all it is worth the money and the free time. There are a lot of steamy love scene, a lot dirty talk, strong female with a soft spot for her man, sexy dangerous men, funny one liners (my opinion), and werewolf politics.
I was entertain...I hope you will be too ;o)
I LOVED this book! Why? The hilarious coments made by the main character along with an absolutely wonderful narrator!
Here's just one of the sarcastic remarks stated :
“I’d rather lie under an elephant suffering from diarrhea with my mouth open wide.”
I mean, seriously, with the funny comments expertly delivered by one of the best narrators I've ever listened to, it was one of those books you're hoping lasts and lasts because you enjoy it so much.
I will warn that there are some explicit sex scenes that I fast-forwarded through and thought weren't necessary to the storyline. That's the only reason I gave this 4 stars on story instead of 5. It just got a little too much, too often, and seemed to take away from the rest of the story.
I will definitely be looking for more from both this author and the narrator!
The heroin in this novel is immensely unlikable! Although she is supposed to be tough, smart and charmingly impudent, she comes off as smart-mouthed, bitchy, and disrespectful. In addition, the attraction felt by her mate for her was simply not plausible. With the main character being such a negative harpy, it was hard to find anything redeeming in the book.
