    Taryn Warner is a wolf shifter with extraordinary healing skills - and serious problems. First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him.

    One night changed my life forever. Beau Bennett has been my best friend since I can remember. He was my first crush before everything came crashing down, and now he wants more, but it's more than I can give him. Things are different now. I wish I could tell him why, but I can't. I haven’t told anyone. I never knew how much I really needed him until the day he left for college, and I was completely alone.

    This book was definitely worth the credit! The way the book was written kept me enthralled all the way through to the end. There were heartbreaking moments and beautiful tender moments. Keep the tissues handy! The narration was also fantastic.

    For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

    I could not stop listening to this book. I reluctantly turned it off at 2:30am and then after a quick sleep I picked up where I left off at 6:30am. I felt compelled to find out what was going to happen next - would Denny find out and would she really go back and forth between Kellan and Denny or just pick one?! have to say I became really frustrated with the character of Kiera. Oh man was she indecisive! Sometimes I really wanted her to grow up and just take some action. But I found the story quite heartrenching at times which I always love in a love story.

    Rebekka Ross did a great job. She even did a fairly credible job of the Australian accent for the character of Denny (I am Australian).

    I gave this audiobook an overall 5 stars due to the addictive factor.

    Can't wait to start listening to the next book which I just happily spent a credit on.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would NOT recommend the audiobook to a friend. I would however recommend the book.


    What other book might you compare Jewels of the Sun to and why?

    Nora's Inn Boonsboro audiobooks are similar stories but the difference is in the narrator. The narrator in Jewels of the Sun is just wrong. She sounded old and she barely changed her pitch for the male voices.The narrator in the Boonsboro books is excellent. I wish he had done the Jewels series as well.
