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. When he makes her a tempting proposal that will benefit both of them, the strong-willed healer has to decide whether escaping an unwelcomed bond with Roscoe is worth the risks of mating with Trey, no matter how temporary their allegiance is intended to be.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
If you love a good paranormal romance series than I insist you buy this book. I was starting to worry that I had burned myself out with this genre but thanks to Suzanne Wright/ Jill Redfield I found I was pleasantly mistaken. I was intrigued from the very beginning. This series will not disappoint you especially if you like sexy alphas, passion, dominance, and even fun snarkiness between characters. Worth credit!!!!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Totally unexpected... Really Really!!! OMG! Boy did I enjoy this. I was expecting something like a simple shifter book... but WOW I was totally blown away...from beinning to end, which never ever happens in a shifter book!!! This was like the Crossfire Series but Shifter Style plus it even had the same narrator (Jill Redfield) so that was a plus... SOoo good. Book 2 needs to come out like yesterday, if you know what I mean.
The blurp pretty much describes the book without giving too much away, but totally draws you in... which I loved...But if I had to describe the characters I would say think Gideon Cross and Eva from Crossfire but Shifters...I am not kidding... SOoooo GOod though... Then the end... when Tarren went all ALPHA SHE-WOLF>.. WHAT!!! Man this was sooo good. I literally did not put this book down... straight read/listen.
Narration was awesome... Jill Redfield is simply great. I love the way she brings that sarcastic smart axx personality to a female character and the I am a Dom, simply because I am Alpha male persona to her male characters. Loved it.
This is a buy... or credit.
....Make you cry, some make you laugh, others make you sigh...This book gives you the whole shebang! I have a special feeling for books that get me chortling as I listen to them.
On the surface this is your run of the mill werewolf romance but the writing is just plain good!!. The main female character is strong and so witty you can't help but giggle all through the book.
Can't wait for more from this author and narrator!
Oh and the intimate scenes are HOT!.

This was an enjoyable listen - the actual story was engaging and the narration enhanced the story.
However, anyone looking for romance should probably skip the sex scenes. While well written -- and they are well written -- the acts depicted read more like rape fantasy enactment pornographic sex than romantic sex. I believe the kink community calls it "consensual non-consent". There's also a male on female sodomy scene that's just as graphic as the rest of the sex. If those hit your "off" spots, fast forward is you friend - the rest of the story makes up for it.
And in case you're wondering, the difference between porno sex and romantic sex is (1) how much the sex is about physical satisfaction versus emotional satisfaction, and (2) whether there's any lead up to the sex (as in, enjoying the skin-to-skin for it's own sake) or just wham-bam, let's get to the money shot, scream-for-me-baby.
Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.
I know that I will be listening to this audiobook again! I had previously read the book when it was self-published and was waiting for the audiobook so I was very happy that it exceeded my expectations. The narrarator was great and really got into the characters. I am anxiously awaiting the next audiobook in the seriesto be released. I can't wait.
Sexy, Sarcastic and Wolftastic
I have to say my favorite part of this book is the shifter aspect. I think the author did a really good job of portraying the pack mentality. Also the overall development of the alpha wolves was good. A lot happened in this book and that was one of the main things I liked about. OH also the main character was such a strong character and soooo sarcastic all the time. I loved it!
I really liked her. She definitely grew on me as the story progressed. I thought she did a particularly good job portraying Taryn. She pulled off the sarcastic lines very well. She did a great job on the whole thing. I could really hear the emotions of the characters through the narration.
Audio books are just my cup of tea!
Really enjoyed this book, love a strong female character with a strong male character. The humor and sarcasm are fantastic and the sex is steamy! If this had been my first Shifter novel I would have been a little lost about the culture, the author does not go into a lot of details on Shifters. If you have read a lot of these books you may not mind, if it is a first for you may be a little lost.
Jill Redfield is a great narrator!
If you enjoyed this book I would recommend Patricia Briggs, Mercy Thompson series.
Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
Its Hot, Funny, and I listen to it at least once a week.
This this my second favorite series next to Exposed and Deception by Naomi Chase. Of the supernatural genera. This is the one. It was also my first wolf pack or shifter series and has caused me to look for more!
Trey. So dominant and just in control. I love a man with this type of swag.
I loved every moment but The moment after the birthday party still has me panting. Hot
I love this book. Cant wait for Tremors of Need. OMG
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)
"a good listen"
story was good a lot of sex scenes! overall was a good listen and the narrator was brilliant telling the story.
Narrator was amazing and totally had the main female character down to a tee.
Couldn't get enough. Housework and sleep took a back seat!! lol
I loved how she made the book come alive and it was a awesome read
Could have done with a bit more story, a bit repetitive in places. If your wanting a book with loads of sex then this is it.
