Take one deadly bite and, bam, a man's life is changed forever, or so Caleb discovers when a loss of control leads to him joining the military and leaving everything behind. Now that he's back, making amends is harder than expected. His ex-girlfriend, Renny, is not interested in excuses. Caleb might have returned, but her plan is to keep him at arm's length - only she can't. Her son deserves a chance to get to know his father, but that doesn't mean that Renny is letting Caleb back into her heart. Now if only her heart would cooperate. Things get dangerous when a mysterious being starts stalking the residents of Bitten Point. When the monster threatens his son, Caleb knows that it's time to unleash his dark inner beast so he can snap at danger and take a bite out of life.

Just Another Audiobook Addict! Love listening to all types of romances, but occasionally need a good Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or a book with humor!
After listening to the first books in Eve Langlais other series, I was expecting this story to have some humor; however, this story came across as more serious. Croc's return is the first story I've listened that was about a shifter reptile, and it just didn't captivate me like other shifter stories.
Overall the plot and character development was good. I liked how Caleb and Renny come to terms with their past, and move on with their future together. The action was decent as they face dangerous situations, and there is a mystery to solve, but I really missed Eve's humor from her other series. I'm on the fence about continuing this series; however, even though this story was not what I was looking for, it still deserves at least four stars.
The narration was really good! This is the first story I've heard narrated by Chandra Skyye, and she did a great job.
I enjoyed this shapeshifter story. It is not every day you have a shifter that is a reptile. What is Bittech actually working on? Where are the missing people in the town and who is creating "monsters"?As usual, Ms Langlais adds her brand of humor to the story. The secondary characters are strong and will appear again in the rest of the series. My only problem with the narration was that Ms Skyye pronounced the main character's name as Cal-in instead of Kay-lib
It is a very enjoyable listen. The narrator does well to convey the humor of the situations.
I listen to quiet a bit of audiobooks and find it hard to compare one author and narrator with next, though I would rank Eve's humor and writing up there with Robin Peterman and Mimi Jean Pamfiloff.
I enjoyed the all the characters in the book. Chandra Skye is a great job in giving the essence of all the characters.
One of the funniest bits in the book is when Caleb meets Princess and is relegated to riding in the back of the truck.
Eve Langlias is a constantly a great writer. I love her quirky humor.
Love listening to audio books.
This book is a romantic love story with shifter and mystery, plus military.
Caleb after fighting for your country and you decide to go home, but nothing is what it use to be. Remember when you make a choice there are consequences. He had no idea what he left behind, even though the cold shoulders did not deter him from claiming his mate. Even though he not only has a broken heart to mend he has a mess to clean up, not to mention the memories that haunt him. Before he can more forward he must heal his past.
Renny has always loved Caleb, but when he up and left for the military with only a text, it not only hurt it shattered her. She too has to suffer the consequences of her actions, and the one thing that Caleb left behind has given her no choice but to keep going on without him. Working two jobs to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table is taking a toll on her and when out of the blue Caleb comes back in thinking he can save the day, Renny is not so willing to give in again.
Good book, but not my kind of story. I was a bit disappointed, there was not as much comedy in this book like her others.
Over 60 years old. Still working in the same company for 42 years. Love listening to books.
It was well written and exciting. Fast paced. Loved getting to know the characters from Bitten Point.
When he learned that he was a father.
She was great. A voice that keeps you interersted for sure.
Yes, oh yes.
Eve is great! Love her writing style.
This is sort of a spin off from Kodiak Point as Caleb is from the same military unit, but can be read without reading the other series though I highly recommend the other series as it is great and my favorite. 🙂
Never read a book before with a croc shifter so I thought this was very interesting, who would have thought a croc could be so sexy.
Caleb is a broken man, his time spent in the military wears on him, plus the reason that he ran away in the first place ways heavy on him. He was a lovable character. Renny is a non-shifter born into a shifter world but she is still pretty tough especially when it comes to protecting her son. Because she knows about shifters it is easier for her to not be scared of Caleb’s croc side and even though she tries to not want him when he returned she was still in love with him. Cute, sweet story.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story and if you like paranormal romances then I think you should give this author a try.
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
Well written and engaging story. Filled with a suspense due to a mystery that unfolds and resolved situations that need answers. There were not any supporting characters of different races, colors or ethnicity except humans & shifters. But, there is a love story that a reader will cheer for and hope for the best. Worth a credit? yea, sure . I'm a sucker for Eve Langlais shifter stories. Still it is rare to find shifter romance with middle aged shifters story containing friends or co workers of different colors & cultures inter acting in a community.
IT RANKS IN THE TOP I REALLY LOVED IT
I THOUGHT THIS SERIES IS A FUN ,SWEET,WITH SOME DRAMA
