Monsters do exist... and they're the good guys. Lillian Rosewood leads an ordinary, boring life working as the manager of a psychiatric hospital. The highlights of her day, other than her skinny hot chocolate, are the hunky guards who work in the secure section. Until a late-night emergency is wheeled in. Captain Jack Harper is insane, drop-dead gorgeous... and just had his abdomen shredded. Despite the fact they're not an emergency room, Lillian can't turn him away and risk a death on her hands. Unable to get the handsome soldier out of her mind, Lillian sneaks into the restricted area to check on him. What she finds is beyond belief. Somehow Jack has managed to heal himself from a near-fatal wound in mere hours. When one of the doctors, Walker, attempts to rape her, things go from bad to worse. In the blink of an eye, Jack is loose and Walker is dead... and Lillian must accept a truth about her rescuer that will change her world forever. What if the patients aren't insane? What if their stories of secret government experiments and monsters are true?
Warning: Contains blood, mayhem, and nude werewolves operating heavy weaponry. Large amounts of sarcasm and smart-ass vampires may offend some listeners. No civilian hospital staff were harmed in the making of this story.

The main character and the narrator. I also liked how the author included Shapeshifters, Vampires, and Zombies (re-animates) created by the government as the main basis.
I took a chance on this, even though it had low ratings. So glad I did. I have no clue why it was rated so low. The narrator was fantastic and I will be looking for more of her books in the future.
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
This stroy mixes paranormal beings with big bad government or pharmaceutial companies (any big impersonal business) that do experiments creating beings such as shifters. A female doctor get involved with a break out when the bad things the oranization was doing was discovered. Of course the lead female falls in love with the alpha leader whom had marked her as "his" mate. Fiighting, drama and vivid descriptions of lusty sex followed. Perhaps there will be a 2nd book but, what happens after the escape and if their "love" will survive due to her being "changed"..
This book is a very interesting turn on the myths we think we know. Mix genetic altering with Werewolves, Vampires and Zombies. Throw in some romance and the evil government, bang you have an intriguing new series!
Smutty fans of Mina Carter may be a touch disappointed, there isn't a lot of smexy steam here. This is more geared towards the Urban Fantasy crowd. Loads of story, building characters and fleshing out a fairly detailed plot. I enjoyed all the intrigue and suspense.
Never fear, there is at least one hawt bedroom scene, but it is more than 75% through the book. So, if you are looking for one of her bedroom reads, this isn't going to work for you! The smexy time is great and plenty detailed, it just isn't the whole point of the book.
This is a mixed narrative, mainly between four characters, giving very different points of view. Most of the time we have Lily and Jack, the leads in this book. They have a great dynamic and I love seeing that sweet Lily has a real backbone! The rest of the time we have Darce and Antonia giving their thoughts. Antonia is a great character and you really see more of what is happening in the facility through her eyes.
I have to say in the book, the ladies owned it! They were seriously kickbutt! I love Lily's sassy snarky comments. Antonia isn't as fun but she makes up for it in attitude! The are a serious handful for their men!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Emily Beresford, who is always a delight. I love her energy throughout the read. She infuses the words with emotion and adds depth to the story. I enjoyed her tone on the men's voices, appreciating that she doesn't take it too far. I hope she stays with the series.
I am beyond thrilled to see this author stepping into audio!! I can not wait for all her books to be released!! I will have some seriously happy ears.
