Jared: Shadow Wranglers, Book 2 | [Sarah McCarty]

Jared: Shadow Wranglers, Book 2

Her source of power is her greatest weakness. Tough, ruthless, and loyal, Jared Johnson has always been a force to be reckoned with: first as an outlaw and now as a vampire. Caught in a war between immortals, he doesn't have time to waste. But when a female vampire is attacked, he can't just walk away. He expects a quick good-bye, but what he gets is a vulnerable woman who intrigues and seduces while giving away nothing of the secrets holding her hostage.

Publisher's Summary

Her source of power is her greatest weakness. Tough, ruthless, and loyal, Jared Johnson has always been a force to be reckoned with: first as an outlaw and now as a vampire. Caught in a war between immortals, he doesn't have time to waste. But when a female vampire is attacked, he can't just walk away. He expects a quick good-bye, but what he gets is a vulnerable woman who intrigues and seduces while giving away nothing of the secrets holding her hostage.

Raisa may not have physical strength, but she's smart and she's survived as a vampire longer than most. She's done it by keeping to herself, but that's about to change. Forced to accept Jared's protection, Raisa finds it increasingly difficult to resist his forbidden allure while keeping the secret that could destroy them both.

Love in vein: listen to another Shadow Wranglers title.

What the Critics Say

"McCarty has done an amazing job with this alternate reality paranormal romance.... So engrossing, it's hard to remember that this is just a story." (Romantic Times)

    "Kind of boring and slow"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The book just moved kind of slowly. There needed to be more action in it. Even the "love scenes" were pretty boring (which is uncommon for McCarthy's books, typically).


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sarah McCarty again?

    I'm not sure if I will listen to any more books from this series. Her other series is really good, though.


    Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Tavia Gilbert is one of my favorite performers for audiobooks, especially for Jeaniene Frost's books. She did a great job in this book, as usual.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The only reaction this book sparked was......boredom. I had to force myself to finish listening.

    "Hell's 8 please!!!"

    I like Sarah McCarty. I think she is a great writer. However, I didn't care for this series. I couldn't get past the "energy" between the vampires that was constant throughout the series. The narration was wonderful. I am a big fan of Tavia Gilbert and I know that she is good with voice changes for each character. With that in mind, I was able to listen to the story through to the end. With all of the options on the paranormal and vampires and werewolves, I think this series is mediocre. I would recommend the Hell's Eight series 10 times before this one. If you want a good vampire series with enjoyable romance and lust as well as action, try The Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost.

    "Lovin' this Johnson Family"

    I think I listened to this book in 1.5 days. I couldn't put it down. It is worth your credit/cash.The story had more substance then most "romance" books and was not predictable. You get to know more about the rest of the Johnson famly. The narrator did a much better job for this book. The men sounded like men and you could distinquish between them.

    "Boring"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I couldn't wait to get to the end. I found myself reading other books and listening to other books while trying to finish this one. Needless to say it took me a while.

    "Cowbooooy!"

    I find that the Johnson Brother are all very sexy, but Jared just has that very dangerous appeal about him. This book is far better than Caleb, but each book set's up the next one
    Pros's the stories in each book are funny, although Caleb was the funniest, Cons: her sex scenes need work, two people shouldn't be having a full conversation while in the thro's of passion. If your on the run from enemies, how do you have time to literally stop argue with each other.
    All and all it is a good series and I have listen to all three books and each story gets better than the last. Can't wait for Slayed's book

    "Great!"

    Jared powers are fun to listen to. The Johnson Brothers together are hilarious. They are a group of guys that don't know anything they NEED to know about women but know EVERYTHING they need to know about THEIR woman which puzzles the heck out of one another!

    I sure hope Sarah writes a book about Derek!

    Looks like those that loved Caleb went on to read Jared becuase there are no bad reviews so far for Jared, and there shouldn't be. Like Caleb, Jared has his own demons, finds his one true love and fights for their existence as a family. Loved it!

    "JARED: SHADOW WRANGLERS BOOK TWO"

    LOVED IT!

    This is a new and most excellent version of the supernaturals in a new way. i really liked this story. i started with the second book simply because it is the one i found and loved the sample.
    will definitely be buying the first and third books also. narrator is wonderful and the change in voices is so great i can tell who is speaking without being told, even when there are multiple persons in a conversation. very very good!

    loved the story and it is extremely believable in a supernatural kind of way.

    i liked this story a lot, all stars out of all available.

    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'm still in it"

    Well I'm very engrossed in this series so far. There's just something about cowboy vampires. That's a spin I haven't heard in a vampire series before and I'm enjoying it.The fact that the books are taking place in modern times is a plus. I enjoy the cowboys having the characteristics of their time and also they have lived long enough to develop other talents of modern times. The ongoing plot is very good and it keeps you wanting to go on to the next book to see what happens to the brothers and the women in their lives.

    So this is a YES this is worth the credit or purchase price. I would advise you to listen to this series in order. Also be advised these books contain explicit sexual content.

    "It was...ok."
    Any additional comments?

    I didnt read the first book because of all of the bad reviews. This one seemed to have better reviews...the book was ok. Some parts were drawn out it made you zone out away from the story. I wont be reading the 3rd book b/c the just rescued the next character and she has a baby with her....That turned me away. A baby would seem to distract from the romance of a man and woman and the attention wouldn't be mainly focused on them and there chemistry, but of the baby's welfare. : / Not for me.

    Story
    "Bk two of Shadow Wranglers". A continuation.."

    Jared is a great continuation of the Johnson family. Jared is the second book to this series and is not a disappointment. It has the same flow as the first "Caleb", but the storyline is different.

    Jared is the second brother to Caleb. He is the doer, the organizer of protection for the family, the enforcer... He has cut the connections to his feeling, executing the role of enforcer and opting not to feel for anyone but his family. Family is very important and friends come in second. "No one" has the right to hurt his family, and the person that changed his brother Caleb was going to pay.

    I again recommend this series to fellow listeners. The story line flows smoothly and the content is rich and full of values, right and wrong, love and hate, that make the story excellent and totally enjoyable. Again, there are sex scenes, but not so many that fast-forwarding (if you want or need to) will make you lose the whole story... :) .

    Tavia Gilbert did a lot better with narration this time. Although there were a few places, my nerves were on edge.

    Overall another great read.
