Publisher's Summary

For 14 years, alpha wolf Jason has watched his partially marked mate Cadence live her life without him. Circumstances force his hand and he must find a way to get her to uncover her buried memories of their past before someone else steps up to take her from him.

For as long as she can remember, hybrid wolf Cadence has loved Jason with every fiber of her being, but he's consistently shoved her away until the love that's there is bound tightly in anger and shame. No one can take his place in her heart, but that doesn't mean that there aren't wolves willing to try.

Will Cadence be able to get through Jason's icy demeanor to the heart of the boy she's always loved? Can Jason undo the past so they will have a future together? This book contains red-hot werewolf loving, plenty of neck biting, and misuse of a kitchen counter. The Wolf's Mate is a book for mature audiences only and contains sexually explicit content.

    "At last re Butler Jason and cadence"


    This the first book in the series and I enjoyed it very much. I have one little complaint, that is the voice should have been different. Dara Rosenburg just wasn't a fit for this book.
    Not only a romance but suspense
    I recmend this book

    Story
    "Could have been great, only ended with so-so"

    I’m all about a wolf shifter romance book that includes a hot alpha male and a sassy alpha female. Only this book lacked the alpha male part. The story is about Jason and Cadence. Jason had claimed Cadence when she was just nine and he was fourteen. Due to the fact that Cadence father was human and didn’t particular like wolves, Jason’s father had to make an alpha creed (order) that Cadence forget about the claiming, in order to save his son from having charges filed against him. So Cadence forgot about the claiming and Jason wasn’t allowed to remind her because of another alpha creed his father had given. So 14 years go by and Jason hasn’t in all that time tried to claim her or show her how much he has cared about her even after his father stepped down and Jason become alpha of the pack. Cadence has never stopped loving him but shows it by being mean to him and flirting with his rival in another pack. It isn’t until Cadence has graduated from college that Jason decides now is the time to claim her, only because the other pack of the town gave him an ultimatum, claim her or step aside.

    I don’t know whether it is the writing or the reader but this story was more suited for a high school romance than an adult romance, minus the smex scenes and their rather tame. I agree with one review, several times while listening to this book, I caught myself rolling my eyes and wondering if I was reading a YA book instead. Yes Cadence is sassy and feisty (which I like in a heroine) but she acts as if she is still a senior in high school, with a crush on the quarterback of the football team. Jason is too passive. He doesn’t act like an alpha wolf. If he wanted to claim Cadence so badly and had been in love with her for that long, do something about it. Don’t send your younger brother as your errand boy, UGH! I have never listened to Dara and probably won’t if it’s an adult romance. She is suited best for YA in my opinion. Her voice has a more young adult tone to it.

    So the big question is: is this book worth a credit, not in my opinion. If you can catch it on sale, maybe (and that’s a low maybe).

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    Story
    "IT WAS OKAY..... JUST OKAY"

    Jason knew Cadence was his mate when he was 15 and so he mate-claimed (bit) her but the trouble was she was just 9 so his then Alpha Father forbid him, and all the Pack, to tell her the significance, or ever remind her, of the event. He also Decreed that, when they're grown-up, she must first remember the bite and then seek him out. Hybrid feisty Cadence has always loved gorgeous Jason but she never understood why he turned away from their friendship and just snapped at her since she was 9 and now, years later, she's had enough.

    So starts a ping pong of insults, jealousy as she dates another, denial, heartache, secrets, a hidden dangerous obsessed Wolf, kidnapping, murder, Pack justice, sex and romance. The trouble is it sounded a bit YA (if you tamed down the sex) and most of the interplay between the H/H just seemed implausible for adults. Unfortunately the narrator's voice came across as very young and this may have spoilt the plot for me.

    Worth a credit? Jason was an Alpha male but, for a lot of the listen, came across as a frustrated, scared to make a move and daren't do it type and I like my Alpha's to be the 'knock the door down, carry the heroine off and ask questions later' type. Coupled with this was the 'teen vibe' either caused by the narrator or plot or both which made this not the normal type of shifter romance that I was expecting so it's got to be a NO to the credit but, if it's on sale, then maybe.

    I love to read. My dream job would be that of reading an authors manuscript before it was published for input from a readers point of view.

    Story
    "Blah to Bleck! Characters way underdeveloped!"
    What would have made Jason & Cadence better?

    Writer needs to give them more depth of character.


    What was most disappointing about R.E. Butler’s story?

    Severely lacking in character development. Sex descriptions were crass.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It would have been 100% better if she didn't sound so whiney & immature.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It worked well in boring me to death and putting me to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    None worth my time.

    Story
    "So-so story with an odd choice for a narrator."

    If you're looking for fantasy romance with action packed scenes, steamy interludes, and larger than life characters...then skip this book. The story itself wasn't bad, but it lacked charisma and mostly annoyed me. I could hardly finish it due almost entirely to the stupid pet names the two main characters kept calling each other and to the fact that they chose the WRONG narrator for this book. The narrator sounds like she should be reading children's bedtime stories and not romance novels. I got this book because it was on sale, one of the bargain books we're offered every once in a while, and now I know why it was on sale.

    Story
    "So Far......Not so good."
    Would you try another book from R.E. Butler and/or Dara Rosenberg?

    I'm only to chapter 4 and I really don't want to go on.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Kresly Cole


    What didn’t you like about Dara Rosenberg’s performance?

    Her voice is just not meant for this type of audio book. Her ability to change her voice per character is not developed. Voice is high pitched like a teenage girl.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Jason & Cadence?

    So far chapters 1-4 are moving slowly and not very engaging.


    Any additional comments?

    At this point, I could have spent my 4.95 on something else entirely.

    Story
    "Vulgar and disgusting"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The writer should have read or listened to a few other sexually explicit books. The language was so vulgar when it did not need to be.


    What other book might you compare Jason & Cadence to and why?

    None


    What didn’t you like about Dara Rosenberg’s performance?

    She sounds like a young teenager which made the vulgar language even more disgusting.


    What character would you cut from Jason & Cadence?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I will not listen to any other books by this writer.

    "good story"
    Would you listen to Jason & Cadence again? Why?

    I really liked this story, but I would probably just read the book next time. I wasn't crazy about this narrator. This book like all of R.E. Butler's books was great!
