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.

    "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
    "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.

    "Wonderful experience..."
    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.

    "Mixed feelings"

    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

    Story
    "The good and the bad."

    While I liked this book there were a few things that just missed the mark on making this a really good book. I would rate this book a 3.5 overall.

    The good: The characters were loveable and I wouldn't mind seeing what will become of them. I like the world that was created and I can see lots of potential with the story.

    The bad: The whole story was covered in only two days. Now that’s fast even for flies. The whole speed of the story was a wham bam thank you ma'am, even the narrator. There were times I had to suspend disbelief how events progressed concerning the time factor. Although I liked most of the characters Kim drove me a bit nuts with her reasoning, to me she didn't make sense. I also was not surprised at the ending, a bit predictable.

    But with all that I still liked it and would be willing to pick up the next book on a sale. While the narrator is a bit fast, she would have done better if she paused for a breath once in a while. I did like her Irish accent though.

    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
