What do you do when you wake up to a whole new life...with dangerous urges you can't control? Medic Drake McKennan has never been good at following protocol, so she doesn't think twice about rendering emergency care when a teenager's life is at stake - even if the young girl is in the throes of Were fever and any sane human should know better. It isn't the bright shining pain of the bite or even the wrenching agonies of the fever that convinces Drake everything in her life has changed. It's the way she feels about the blonde with the wolf-gold eyes who awakens a dark hunger she can't control...and doesn't want to. Sylvan, the Alpha of the Adirondack Timberwolf Pack, is the one female Drake can't have. And the only one she craves.

Better story line & less emphasis on graphic lesbian sex
My main complaint is that the graphically written sex scenes between women overshadowed the story. The characters were either having sex, thinking about sex &/or both so much that what little storyline there was lost.
the audio book brought the book alive of me!
great love scenes!
She gives each character their own voice with out even seeming to try
great new spin on the werewolf vamps thing
I walk 7 miles a day and listen to about 3 audiobooks a week.
Sucks You In
All the great characters and plots!
Yes , she is great.
It will get your blood pumping no doubt about it.
Good book and looks like a great series. Do yourself a favor and just get this whole series it is wonderful!
supernatural, sex, and sexy ladies
This book is very similar to "Fox Run" by Robin Roseau. Both having to do with Wolves and the alpha and a non-pack member mating with the Alpha and joining the pack.
Any scene with Jody in it.
Im not the sentimental type.
I don't know why people who are not very comfortable with sexuality read this book just to complain about the abundant amount of sex. If you know you can't handle it, why read it?
Drake. Nothing intimidated her.
When Drake first meet Sylvan.
The narrator's voice if so well to this series that I have already listened to this book twice in since I bought it and I've only had it a month.
Hey there! I like Teen novels and books with female leads.
If the author had made the narrative voice more clear. There was nothing to distinguish when someone different was 'speaking.' Given that there were five different narrators, it made things very confusing and jumbled. Especially since the author would suddenly switch perspectives in the middle of a scene instead of the end or beginning of another.
The book focused far to much on sex. Every scene had characters participating in sex, thinking about sex, watching sex, or discussing sex. It got repetitious and dull. Couple in the fact that the genitalia of all the female werewolves more resembled a male's than female, and it just made every scene uncomfortable rather than sexy.
Overall, it seemed like the author was more focused on writing out anatomically awkward "erotic" sex scenes than any of the other story lines. The main bad guy of the book wasn't heard from throughout most of the plot and was suddenly defeated within the last ten minutes of listening.
Unchanging, Even, Bland.
I would cut over half of the "erotic" scenes. Most, if not all, did not further the plot. I'd also reduce the number of narrators. There were far too many and it only made things more complicated.
All of the female leads were practically identical personality wise. Headstrong, Brash, and Aggressive. They even had the same mannerisms and quirks; for example, they all put their hands on their hips when they were mad.
The only real differences between them were looks, species, and name. Had I not been conveniently told that the previous narrator was no longer the main perspective, I'd of thought it was the same person.
The premise was pretty good but I found too much of an attempt to be an erotic novel. I think the erotic parts weren't as well written so if the author had concentrated more on the actual story, it would have been a better book.
I loved this book and I am looking forward to seeing where each of the characters take me. Yes the sex scenes are graphic and hot (in my opinion) but in no way would I call this porn. This book is the beginning so I can see that the author is just trying to set the scenes and characters in place so yes the story itself may be lacking in parts but again, this is a series so I usually expect this out of a first book.
This is my first experience with LL Raand or audible books with "Were" or "Vampire" characters. I enjoyed it immensely.
I have to say that my favorite scene was between Drake and Silvan during Drake's transition.
I loved the scene after Drake's transition when she was wrapped in the arms of her fellow pack. It really showed the closeness and love of the pack.
There was absolutely no storyline. Every character is flat and never evolves past having sex and their "were" exterior.
Don't waste your time/ money.
I have to say, clearly this is not my kind of story. I really could not associate with were-wolfs (weres) and never really made a connection with the characters. So much of the story is driven by the carnal needs of the weres dominating the story, that makes for great erotica, but overrode for me what would have been the developments in normal relationships. So I guess if ur into werewolves, pretty unique and exciting exotica, as well as a great strong lead, then its great. Sounds good, no? I just could not get into werewolves and their behaviors (or needs) dominating the story so much. I might try listening to the second one in the series but right now its on the back burning. Great narration for this as well from Maxine.
