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.

    "Where's the pride?"

    I have listened to about 3 minutes (even though it feels longer) of this story and I had to look at the speed I was listening to a number of times to make sure I didn't have it on too fast. Wow - talk about a speed reader with no expression or fluency.
    I have enjoyed all the books I have read from Audible - but this one is really not the best by a long shot.
    I tried to pick up the storyline but found that difficult. After listening to Shannon's Scheme this is a real let down I am sorry to say. Oh well back to the books and find one that I can continue enjoying.

    Story
    "Not nearly as good as the Nalini Singh series...."

    This seems like a pale version of the changeling series written by Nalini Singh, both the story and the narrators. I only listened to the first book in this series, and sampled the rest, but just not interested.

    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!

    "Horrible performance!!! Liked story!"

    I almost stopped listening to the book as I could not stand the narrator's voice. But main characters were so personable that it nudged me to hang in.

    "I have listened and read this book 4 times already"

    I love this book so much that I have listened and read it four times. Jennifer Ashley writes a superb story. A great series.

    Story
    "Different But Decent!"

    I've listened to several of Jennifer Ashley's historical romance stories from the Highland Pleasure series and loved them, even though I'm not big on historical romances. I'm more into paranormal romances so when I realized Jennifer also writes a shifter series, I had to give them a try.

    While checking out the first story in the Shifters Unbound series, Pride Mates, I was surprised to see many of the reviews indicating they were disappointed with the story. I'm not deterred from getting a book just because it has some bad reviews but after listening to the story, I understood why some would be disappointed with the story.

    While I felt the story was missing something, it was still a good. If I start an audiobook that does not grasp my attention and keep me engaged, I will discontinue listening to it. I've got several unfinished books in my library that I just could not make it to the end; however, this story had decent character development and action, which kept me engaged and I do plan on listening to the other stories in the series.

    Traci Odom did a great job narrating and I liked her Irish accent for Liam.

    What made the experience of listening to Pride Mates the most enjoyable?

    Narrator did a wonderful job especially with the Scottish accent. It added a much needed aspect to the story.

    The story was good and I enjoyed it and look forward to the others in the series. But the performance was terrible and that is the best thing I can say.

    "Ok I have to say it! WOW!"
    What did you love best about Pride Mates?

    Forget what you know about the shifters of before.... the author has a great story and the twists at the end are brilliant. Even if you think you know how it is going to end you can't predict how they get there. LOVED IT.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pride Mates?

    When the collar came off and he jumped.


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

    No favorite but the narrator could have been more masculine with the male lead


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

    Yes
