Pride Mates | [Jennifer Ashley]

Pride Mates

To most, they are animals—even when in human form. They are to be collared and kept on the fringes of society, scorned because they are feared, hated for their extraordinary powers. And attorney Kim Fraser has to go right into the heart of their lair. It’s her job to defend those in need. But there’s absolutely nothing defenseless about Liam Morrissey. His soft Irish lilt and feline grace can’t disguise his sheer strength.

Publisher's Summary

To most, they are animals—even when in human form. They are to be collared and kept on the fringes of society, scorned because they are feared, hated for their extraordinary powers. And attorney Kim Fraser has to go right into the heart of their lair. It’s her job to defend those in need. But there’s absolutely nothing defenseless about Liam Morrissey. His soft Irish lilt and feline grace can’t disguise his sheer strength. Nor can the silver chain at his throat, designed to control the aggression of his kind, completely reassure her that this man has been tamed. Yet when a feral shifter begins to stalk them both, Liam is the only one she trusts with her life. She’ll let him claim her—for her protection, for her pride, and for a passion that knows no bounds.

    Story
    "Pride Mates is a Winner"
    What did you love best about Pride Mates?

    The hero and heroine are so well 'drawn' that I could easily visualize them, and the other characters in Shifter Town were fascinating!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The hero was very attractive in both his personality and his description.


    What about Traci Odom’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was very unobtrusive. It was as if I was reading the book myself!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did actually find myself chuckling during some of the conversations between the hero and heroine. They clashed perfectly!


    Any additional comments?

    I definitely recommend this book!

    Story
    "Narrator was in a race to finish the book"
    Where does Pride Mates rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the middle. Not the worst I've listened to. It seems like it could be a great series, but the narrator was pretty bad. Hoping the second book is better


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jennifer Ashley? Why or why not?

    I'm giving it one more shot.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was good with the Irish accent, but seemed like she was rushing through. Couldn't tell where the sentence stopped and a new one started. Or who was talking sometimes.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no

    "Enjoyed"

    This was a cute read, I'm somewhat interested in the next book-see if they decide to branch off on their own without collers. Also, to see what happens with the main characters father.

    "Good Story- Narrator is aweful"
    What made the experience of listening to Pride Mates the most enjoyable?

    The story was enjoyable. I liked that it went straight into the relationship. I want to read more from this series but I'm going to have to wait a while to get over the aweful narration.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Add some personality into it.

    Story
    "slow moving not much different than a teenage love"

    the story was good but too slow, make a nice 3 hr but it lagged and I found my self guessing at what might be happening, thinking what should be happening. forced myself to finish and it is going back, a credit is too much for a decent 3 hr story that took much longer to tell. Narrative good and I am seeing others in the series rating 5 so I will try maybe one more but I am not sure of that either.

    Story
    "Don't judge a book by narrator - Read instead"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, the narrator removes the entire experience of the book. I wish it could be republished with a different narrator. I'll never purchase another book read by Traci Odom. Her Irish accent is decent, the cadence of the speech is choppy and the inflection between the female character or any character really and the regular narrative content is non-existent. You have to concentrate hard to follow the flow of speech to make sure you don't miss what is said versus what is thought, or just narrative speech. There's no emotion. It's as if she's reading an instruction manual instead of an entertaining book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Reading it myself. I enjoyed it much more instead of listening to it on audio. And that's a shame, I've listened to many audiobooks and this is the first narrator that I've really really disliked to the point of will make sure she's not the narrator of another I purchase.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Traci Odom?

    Brianna Bronte or even Maxine Mitchell, Stella Bloom ANYONE else I think. It would be really nice if this could be re-released with another narrator. It's a disservice to the entire series that this is the quality of the first book of the series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If it had been read by another narrator, yes.

    "AWSOME READ!!!!"
    If you could sum up Pride Mates in three words, what would they be?

    AMAZING SHIFTER STORY!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really Loved the Hero Liam, but the other characters like, Glory, Conner, Dillon and Oh! don't forget the bad guys. They all really made the story come Alive. OH! The NARRATOR DID AN AWSOME JOB WITH THE ACCENTS FOR THE CHARACTERS!!!


    Which character – as performed by Traci Odom – was your favorite?

    LIAM!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The fight scene between Liam and Fergus.


    Any additional comments?

    NARRATOR DID AND FANTASTIC JOB!!! LOVED THE SHIFTER STORY!

    "What an interesting twist for a Shifter storyline!"
    What made the experience of listening to Pride Mates the most enjoyable?

    I love the accents and acceptance of Pride family.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Liam was my favorite - strength, humor, honesty and his reaction to kissing!


    Which character – as performed by Traci Odom – was your favorite?

    Liam's irish accent was good for someone not Ireland


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cried because the limitations of humans to put a lock on their necks. Reminded me of slavery from back in the day.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for to read the next book.

    Story
    "Average Series with Predictable Outcomes"

    I was looking for a great shifter / supernatural romance. This one was only mediocre. The story lines throughout the series were okay, but very predictable. And the romance scenes... I was like seriously? I'm more about the story than the sex, so perhaps this series just wasn't a good selection for me.
