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.

    "Pride Mates"

    I thought the book was great - it kept me entertained and interested. I read the other reviews and was surprised by some of the feedback on the narrator. I liked the fact that her characterizations did not intrude on my own. Part of what makes a book good to me is that I shape the characters in my mind as the author verbally draws them for me. When the narrator gets too much into "acting" the parts I find it distracts me and breaks up the flow of the story. I guess we all have our preferences.

    Overall, I would definitely read another of Ms. Ashley's books and I would definitely listen to another book narrated by Ms. Odom. I thought they made a pretty good team.

    "The series is great, but the narrator struggles"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the whole series is great. I wish the other books were on here as well.


    Did Traci Odom do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She struggled with some of the male voices, and had difficulty inflecting emotion sometimes.

    Story
    "Awesome story!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pride Mates to be better than the print version?

    Yes and no. The book tells a wonderful story and keeps you drawn in, but the nararator didn't put as much emotion into her reading as others do.


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

    When Liam and his family and mate came together at the end of the book. After everything they had been thru.


    What does Traci Odom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings the characters to life, but not with as much emotion as I would like to see in them.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I would have to think on that one. Maybe

    Story
    "Good potential, cheesy ending"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Time I don't regret. I enjoyed the unique plot.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The scene where the men were summoned to the leader and the proceeding scene. The least interesting was the ending. It seemed rushed, like she saw the ending and threw it together. There was so much potential than what she gave us.


    What three words best describe Traci Odom’s performance?

    (I don't want to be mean.) Ordinary, nothing special.


    Could you see Pride Mates being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, and I don't know. I don't watch a lot of TV/Movies. The books are better.

    "Performance Issues"

    It's a good book, but the narrator gave a lackluster performance. I also thought I heard some noise in the background. Minor, but distracting until I was able to tune it out. This book is priced lower than most, so if you're on the fence after listening to the sample, I suggest you pay for it, but don't use a credit.

    Story
    "You will adore the Shifters"

    These characters are warm and wonderful. By the end of this book you will want to be mate-bonded too. This series has 2 short stories, another full book (Sean), and another book due out in December. Let's hope Audible gets them all! These are must reads for fans of shifters and fae!

    "I enjoyed it"

    I listened to this on a long drive and I really enjoyed it. I ended up taking my phone with me to listen to the end as I cleaned my kitchen so I didn't have to wait to hear the end.
