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!
I loved the dialogue between characters. I downloaded this book because I saw its rating on the listener's scroll bar and thought why not try a new author. I was not disappointed. I will download the second book for sure. I did think that there could have been more action or deception to the story plot but overall I enjoyed the book.
I liked all the different character personalities and the fact that the main charater was a strong female role. I love lots of dialogue and banter back and forth.
I have listened to Sylia Day Bared to You servies by Jill Redfield and love how she acts out the role rather than just reading words on a page. She makes you forget that she is playing all the parts.
The sarcasm was hillarious to listen to. You know it is good when you are smiling and laughing out loud while on the treadmill:)
Audiobooks are relaxing and 'food for the soul'.
I have only listened to the audio, which was great.
Rachel Vincent's Shifter Series. Despite the initial denials, you can't stop fate when it comes to "true mates".
Taryn. Her strong character was refreshing despite her past and circumstances.
"To Tame a Feral Mate".
I absolutely enjoyed the banter between Taryn and Greta. I am eagarly anticipating the next installment on audio.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Wow!!! What an awesome find! This book was fantastic. It had 2 wonderful characters in Trey and Taryn and a whole host of fabulous supporting characters. I'm very happy to hear that it's been picked up and will continue into a series. Trey is an uber alpha male (literally) and Taryn is tough as nails, but so funny and sweet too. There was tons of angst, drama and the sex- Oh Lord! The scenes were smoking hot!!! I loved every minute and glad to find another author to put in my "must read" category.
This book drew me in at times and had me bored at other times. The story itself isn't bad. Maybe it needed better editing? I get that this is a werewolf story. They are dominant. That word is used over and over and over in the book. I get it. They are dominant. But as a writer you should SHOW me instead of telling me over and over and over. And the sex scenes… so many of them… seriously, too many. They were redundant. The writer used the same words over and over and over again. See how annoying that gets? I finished the book but won’t be listening the next ones in the series.
Basically a predictable xxx story with shifters who were nymphomaniacs. I do not appreciate paying good money for a story I had figured out in a few short chapters. Could have done without the borderline abusive creepy sex. The plot, characters and basic shifter customs were a disappointment.
It was pulling teeth to finish this garbage book. It was nothing but a 10 hour shitty porno with no worthy storyline. I wish I had counted how many times the author said "cock" it was probably in the hundreds. Don't waste your time if you're looking for a good read or a fun story, this book is neither of those. Worst book I've ever finished, hands down.
