This book had the potential to be enjoyable but to many porn like scenes. They were repeated over and over. Some humorous one liners. I do not recommend unless you are looking for extremely "raw" sex scenes.
Narration was okay.
The humorous one liners.
Should be adults only warning.
I really did not like this book, I fast forwarded most of the book, and each time, it was the same thing. It was a bit too vulgar for me. I think you can be sexy without the characters being so disrespectful to another person. I know it can be done, I love Kresely Cole's book because of it. Just because their wolves doesn't mean you have the right to beat the bejeezus out of your mate
Not this book.
I really didn't like her male's voice. I am not sure if it annoyed me because of what was coming out of the character's mouth or simply it was the voice. I think it's more of what the character was saying.
The two main characters having sex in front of their wedding guests, and the main character's talking to each other.
Writing a book is difficult, and this book may be wonderful for someone else. I bought it because of the great reviews, but if you are even a tiny bit of a prude, this may not be for you.
Characters are flat and iconic. The dialog was trite and unimaginative. The story was an afterthought and the erotic scenes were shifted into without warning and at inappropriate times. These things were compounded by an unemotional and dry reading.
I have read better fan fiction, most of which is horribly written, but at least it's free! The plot is formulaic and paper thin, as are the characters. The sex is crude porn, which might be OK if the main character didn't come off like a 16-year-old girl. Oh, excuse me, a "feisty" little thing that learns how to be a "good girl" and "take it" (while shouting "no" and calling her man every curse word the author could think of). To add insult to injury, Wright constantly insults the reader's intelligence by saying Taryn's a strong, independent woman.
If you're after base, unimaginative sex with heavy male dominance and a side of fantasy, I guess this book is for you. Ditto if you're a regular paranormal romance reader/listener who wants to try something more hardcore. If you have any interest in plots, action, love, character development, romance, strong female characters, or engaging dialogue, keep looking.
Let me just say, I finished this, despite the incredibly gross and graphic sex in this book. I was pulled in enough by the story being told that I kind of just endured the sex, but seriously? As much as I enjoyed Taryn and her awesome smart alecky, sarcastic comments and her feistiness, and the hotness that is Trey, 'm going to return this book. There's no way I can hear all of that sex again, and it's sex in any possible form. It really was pornographic. If this kind of thing doesn't bother you, you'll love the story, I did, but if you, like me, think that sex should stay between the couple and behind closed doors, AVOID this book, you won't like it. I'm sad to have to give it such a mixed review. :(
Humor. I seriously loved all of the crazy comments, particularly from Taryn and Dominique. Soooo funny!
Audio books are just my cup of tea!
Really enjoyed this book, love a strong female character with a strong male character. The humor and sarcasm are fantastic and the sex is steamy! If this had been my first Shifter novel I would have been a little lost about the culture, the author does not go into a lot of details on Shifters. If you have read a lot of these books you may not mind, if it is a first for you may be a little lost.
Jill Redfield is a great narrator!
If you enjoyed this book I would recommend Patricia Briggs, Mercy Thompson series.
I adore mysteries, science fiction (hard core) and paranormal (such as the Greywalker series). This definitely was not one for my tastes - predominately sex with werewolf as basis for kinkier sex. Not much story.
makes me very cautious in looking for books in the fantasy category
she was amazing - particularly given the text she was reading.
personally not but that is because romance novels are so not my cuppa
Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
Its Hot, Funny, and I listen to it at least once a week.
This this my second favorite series next to Exposed and Deception by Naomi Chase. Of the supernatural genera. This is the one. It was also my first wolf pack or shifter series and has caused me to look for more!
Trey. So dominant and just in control. I love a man with this type of swag.
I loved every moment but The moment after the birthday party still has me panting. Hot
I love this book. Cant wait for Tremors of Need. OMG
I would categorize this book under erotica, not under Paranormal fantasy/Romance.
True it follows the storyline of our 2 alpha wolf shifters protagonists, but I would have to say that most of their story keeps focusing with much detail into their many antics in the bedroom (and kitchen, shower, forest, ect).
Jill redfield set's a good pace for this storyline ,that makes it enjoyable to listen to . Although the quick & sassy comments of the female lead character tends to get a bit old half way thru the story, as a narrator somehow she makes it work.
I guess you could make a movie from it; but it would be one with an x-rating!
There are scenes in the story that might be uncomfortable for some readers, since their mating does tend to get a bit aggressive at times (example; the male alpha lead character having to overpower the female alpha lead in order to win her sexual submission).
In the end it is a fairly good book with a descent story line perfect when one is in the mood for a simple but Entertaining/frisky listen.
Fantasy, sci-fi, Motorcycles, and my granddaughter. And I am a rail road engineer.
Less graphic sex scenes. The story itself was good. But the sex scenes were far too long, far too graphic, far too often. In fact, in fact, this author makes Laurel K Hamilton look like a children's writer.Mind you, I have nothing against a good sex scene where it's called for, but this author just went way over the top. Instead of adding to the plot, she distracted from it. A shame too, because this book really had the makings of being a good series.
I don't know. Perhaps if the sex scenes were toned down a bit. The story itself is not bad.
Her performance was average. She seemed to get into the different parts, but the voices all sounded the same. Perversely enough, her best performance was the sex scenes..
If graphic sexual descriptions offend you, this is definitely not the series for you.
