"Mika is a human, in an alley, surrounded by four horny werewolves." So boldly begins the bizarre and erotically explicit tale Mate Set: Mating Heat, Book 1, narrated with game, breathless enthusiasm by G. C. VonCloudts.
In this alternate world, the horny werewolves are in charge, the horny humans are the outcasts, violence lurks everywhere, and seemingly every man, woman, and animal has nothing but sex on the brain. Perhaps fans of True Blood will appreciate this steamy and vaguely creepy story.
It's werewolf mating season. All the males are in heat and the driving, sexual lust of their beasts is almost uncontrollable. Mika is human, in an alley, surrounded by four horny werewolves. She knows she's in deep shit. A tall, handsome werewolf rescues her then demands payment. Hot, sweaty, intimate payment.
Grady is a half breed whose human mother abandoned him to his werewolf father, so he knows human women just aren't safe to fall in love with. The wolf within him wants Mika as his mate, but Grady will not give in. Never. Ever. He's willing to fight his emotions and his beast, no matter how much sexy Mika tempts him.
But neither of them expected her Uncle Omar to assign Grady to protect her from other males - 24/7, in her home, sleeping just down the hall. Mika decides to make the best of her vacation and keep the hot wolf in her bed. Grady can't resist the scorching sex, but he is determined to resist the bond.

Adopted Mira (the human heroine) get's caught in the middle of the Were mating season while visiting her Werewolf Uncle who appoints a bodyguard to watch over her until the 2 week 'frenzy' is over.
In prowls handsome Grady, a half breed Werewolf, who has trust issues with humans as he was abandoned by his human Mother so is seeking a Pureblood female to bond with. Trouble starts when he is forced to 'mark' Mira against his will and that's when the passion and non-stop sex really heats up. The problem is Mira's falling hard for him but Grady's human side is fighting a bond but his Wolf side is howling yes yes yes so sex is fine but he's in denial about his true feelings for Mira.
Mira came across as spoilt at times and did some dumb things and there wasn't really a plot other than mating mating and, yes you guessed it, more mating but despite this I really enjoyed all the emotional tension an turmoil as Grady finally had to decide what to do….. before time runs out.
Worth a credit? Well hello, hot hot hot Werewolf action, errr that would be a hell YEAH and I'm ready for Book 2..
Hot, sexy, thrilling
Ms Dohner has quite a way with words. I listen to her books again and again.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
Well it seems that my very favorite narrator is now using the pseudonym GC VanCloudts. I believe her original name is Therese Plummer and she can narrate a newspaper and make it sound like the most fascinating thing you've heard. Yes, she's that good.
The story was just ok for me. It was very hot and heavy but I felt like the story was mostly about sex. The paranormal world wasn't developed and I kept wondering what our main couple had in common besides strong libidos. That said the story did spark my curiosity and I will be listening to other books in this series as long as they are narrated by this same amazing narrator.
Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
I had previously read this book and decided to reacquaint my self with the series in audio. It reminded me of just how much I enjoyed it the first time around!! Such a great read!
Mika is just the sassy snarky kind of gal I love to read. She knows what she wants and goes for it. I adored her banter and spunky attitude. The way she teases Grady is so naughty and delightful! She does push things too far at times, especially knowing the danger she faces.
Grady is a gruff Alpha wolf, who has no plans for a human mate. This makes him a bit of an a-hole most of the book. He is fighting it with everything he has and really not very likeable at times.
The whole book is from Mika's POV, which is part of why Grady comes off so badly. If there had been a mixed narrative he cold have explained himself to the reader in his thoughts. Cause his actions said major bad news d-bag.
The steam is off the charts hot!!! I am talking forget eh panties and have a fella nearby!!! Oh lord do those wolves like to lick their treats! And the biting. And the dominance!! Good lordy!
There are some major drama moments in the story, these kids have things to work out. I really loved the supporting cast and hope to see some wolfie brothers find mates soon!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by G. C. VonCloudts, who does a great job. Plenty of variation in the voices and consistency. She has a great tone that leads itself to the material. I loved her energy throughout the read, especially in the naughty bits! The girl gives good voice!
I really enjoyed this book despite the hero being arrogant and highhanded. I am eager to read the next book in the series again and then move on to the third book which will be a first time read!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
book 1 & 2 are worth the listening time. Good use of imagination from author. this author is not for me on her other stories. Great outline, but the full story is just not there. Author has several different story lines going. So I tried at least one of each and some about 3 of the series. Her editor knows how to market her material and I did give it a good try. My fellow reviewers loved this author, but from me "beware" and do not over buy all at once.
this story just fine, but reader just did not do it for me.
I have been on a mission to find some new great readers...what a chore it has been.
I did listen, but I tend to do this when I start a book
Try 1 before buying more in a series. This author has at least 3 series and one or more maybe for you.
I loved the story line. I like the animal/human characters. Both characters were honest with their feelings.
His Purrfect Mate. It is the second book in the series.
Great character voices.
I laughed and cried some. It was a really good story.
I bought this book because CAROLYN gave it a good review. I had really mixed feelings through this entire book. The male lead, Grady, is a complete ass to the female lead, Mika. The female lead tends to be a door mat.
Through the whole book I was thinking " leave the jerk & let him go insane, he deserves it". I'm mean that way.
Overall, it's a good book. the narrator sure sounds like Therese Plumber. I've listened to lots of books narrated by Plumber and I'm almost certain we are getting our collective legs pulled on the narrators true identity.
Worth the credit.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
If I am in the mood to listen to some explicit animal sex I will probably try book 2, the
narrator did a good job.
No, this one just had the most sex I have ever listened to.
Minnie, like I said she really lightened the story up and provided some much needed humor.
Well I think there is one but I think the characters are different, it would be nice hearing about how Grady and Micah are doing.

This story had potential, but didn't follow through. I love Paranormal stories, especially shifter ones, but this was a disappointment. Lead female was unlikable, continuously contradicting and bitchy, male lead was weak. I found myself fast forwarding through to see if anything improved. It didn't. And with this being an erotic paranormal romance, I expected more from the sex scenes, but they weren't even mediocre. Sorry, but I may or may not try again with this series, probably very reluctantly, if I do.
