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!
For those who enjoy paranormal romance/action stories, they will enjoy Wicked Cravings. There is just the right amount of sex, romance (cause hey, there is definitely a difference), suspense, wolf fights and shape shifting. And while some would say that there is nothing extremely original or new about the story....shape shifter girl with secret meets hot shape shifter guy who doesn't think he wants a relationship because he fears intimacy or letting anything come between him and his job....but realizes that he must have her....and then they have some obstacle to overcome....and soon he realizes that she is his entire world.... and they fight any and every one to be together....because when it comes down to it, they are stronger together than apart. SO, while there may not be anything horribly new or original, there was something about this story that had me staying up all night to see how it ends. I was invested in their romance and really wanted to see how it all ended. I enjoyed the characters, the witty banter (between Jaime & Dante), and the flow of the story. And while this was my first Suzanne Wright book, I definitely can't wait to read other stories in the series (especially the next one that has to be Shaya and Nicks's story which I can already tell will be a doozy).
Jill Redfield does an outstanding job with the delivery of the story.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a great story. It's a very good continuation of the series that started with Feral Sins. While I admit that I liked the first book best, this one was a close second and great in its own right.
I really liked Jamie's character. She's smart and spunky and deserves a lot better than life has given her. Jamie joined the Phoenix pack with her brother (shortly after the end of Feral Sins). At first she shows an interest in Dante (she used to have a crush on him as a kid) but when he doesn't respond to her hints she backs off and figures it's for the best since she has issues that makes it difficult to get close to anyone.
Dante isn't interested in a relationship, not just with Jamie but with anyone. He was too afraid that it would pull him away from his work and he didn't want to find his true mate because of this. To be honest, there were times in the beginning of the book that my good opinion of Dante (from the first book) took some beatings. He certainly has issues that cause him to suffer repeated bouts of (what I like to call) relationship dumbassedness. We do find out some of his issues later which make his actions make more sense which helps. Dante tried to ignore Jamie at first but when he realized he no longer rated her special smiles he found he missed them. When he saw her out with some other guy he just couldn't contain himself and went after her.
Jamie and Dante do end up in a relationship but she holds back from him. She's convinced that sooner or later her secret will come out and soon after she'll die. She doesn't want to bring down Dante with her so she tries to maintain a distance so they don't imprint. Dante figures out about her condition but talks Trey in to allowing her to stay for now. Dante starts training her as he trains the enforcers in hopes that it'll give her more control in order to help her.
Jamie and Dante have other issues to deal with as well...like a couple of Exs of Dante's that wont let up and Dante being a workaholic. Also, Taryn's pregnancy from the last book comes to term and she delivers in this book. OMG the delivery room conversation was so damn hilarious, it had me laughing out loud (literally)!!! There's also issues with a packmate that finds her mate but is rejected causing problems.
Just when things seem to be going well for Jamie and Dante there's an attack on the pack and in the fighting Jamie has to shift. Unfortunately, once her wolf is out, she has issues getting back in to her human form. Her wolf wont trust anyone and wont let her shift back so she's stuck like this while Dante tries to help her. In the end a couple of things happen that combine to get her wolf to trust Dante and the story has a great ending.
Overall this was a great book. I'm really loving this series and can't wait for the next installment. I'd recommend this book. 2 thumbs up! :D
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Once again I am so very happy with this book... I may have to tame my listening experience down a little to get a we rest up lol. Another excellent Supper Hot story. I love these Wolves. Sure hope the next book is not to far away. Having withdrawal symptoms already. Mmmmm
Audiobooks are the new black! .................... PNR enthusiast + a real sucker for books with bad boys.
Suzanne Wright did it again! The second book in her "Phoenix Pack" series is excellent. I loved the first book and hoped the second would be just as good. I was not dissapointed. I think she is a very exceptional writer in the PNR genre and is very great at writing books with both a good paranormal story and romance.
This book contains a very dominant alpha male, a kick-ass female, a excellent story and some very hot and steamy scenes.
I think the narrator Jill Redfield does a really great job and makes the characters believable.
If you liked the first book "Feral Sins", you will absolutely also like this one and I think it is well worth the credit.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I like SW books because they sizzle. Her characters always have that chemistry that I crave. I enjoy a good mix of sexual heat and a good story. This continues to be a series I will be interested in adding to my library. So I will continue to buy these books since they are under $10 and I only use my credits for the more expensive books.
The narration on the series is wonderful and the story makes one laugh out loud at the awful humor and love the characters. Intrigue, adventure,romance, humor and sex. Great combination.
I love audiobooks!!!
Probably up in the top 100. Jill Redfield's always spot-on with both sarcastic and sexy. She's the best damn narrator I have heard yet!
The childbirth was pretty hilarious.
too many to count as far as the push toward relationship.
Wicked Cravings is an awesome book! Great blend of romance, wicked interludes, and drama/ murder attempts! Fantastic & interesting characters with a good plot & storyline!
This is my second time through this series and that is unusual for me. Books usually don't intrigue me enough to warrant that. But it's really fun, now that I know the characters, to read (listen) them again, and catch all the little things that I missed the first time. For example, Ryan not playing with the other enforcers.
Some of the absolute best lines are in this book as well! Cracks me up every time when I listen to tayrn in labor and the things she says to trey!
Worth the money? Absolutely! This whole series is great! Narrator does an amazing job bringing each character to life! The only complaint I have is sometimes the female character gets whiny during the hot sex scenes. But not enough to impact my opinion. This book has it all: action, suspense, love, and the great fight for that ultimate relationship! And I love that it's not the last chapter of the book when they get together. I find that all to often there is so much build up to the the H/H getting together, that when they finally do, the book ends and I'm left with the feeling that the story is unfinished. This whole series is not like that at all! Get the whole series! They're all wonderful!
