What would you do if a simple errand takes a deadly twist, turning you from cautious prey to dangerous predator?
Someone is trying to send a deadly message to Mason, arranging the deaths of those he loves and it puts the entire pack and Alpha on high alert. Darcy understands the primal instincts driving her beloved Mason's commands. With the help of those he sets as protectors, she learns about herself and the things she'll need to help support her Alpha and pack. When events turn dire however, one truth offers her strength - once given, oaths are unbreakable...even if it means risking it all.

This is a cute story about shifters and Vampires.
The story jumps right in without much character or world building. We do learn a lot about the main characters throughout the story. We also learn some things about the pack and their relationship with the vampires. I would have liked to have a more complete understanding of the world and the rules, but there was enough to understand the story.
The suspense in the story is interesting and gives the plot some complexity. I was a bit surprised at some of the outcomes of the interactions with the villains. It was not the usual faire. The villain's motives were understandable, but the reactions of the good guys was not what I expected. I found myself wanting to know more of the history and why some of the characters reacted the way they did. For example, when you have a vampire villain (bad guy) and a vampire enforcer (good guy), why isn't the vampire enforcer leading the charge against the villain?
I liked the twist at the end of the story. I am sure it sets up the beginning of the next story. I look forward to reading that one.
The narration was okay. At times, especially in the second half of the book, it was good. At the beginning of the book, however, it was stilted, especially when narrating Darcy's voice. Having the narration smoother at the beginning of the story would, I believe, have made the story flow more smoothly.
Personally, there was an awful lot of making out for a book with no sex. If this was a book about teenagers, I would understand that. Given that this was a book about adults waiting for their mating ceremony, I would have expected them to keep their distance more to avoid temptation, since they were waiting for the ceremony. Also, the making out took away from the story at times. The playing and running together was great and added to the story, but a lot of the making out did not.
I liked the overall dynamic between the main characters. Darcy was strong enough to be a complement to an alpha without going overboard. Mason was a strong, dominant alpha. I enjoyed seeing him trust Darcy enough to open up to her and let her help him when he was troubled.
Overall, I enjoyed reading the story and would recommend it if you like the genre.
Thanks Belinda for giving me the chance to listen to this story.
I do not have the print version of this but I always think audio gives more depth to the books. This is a werewolf story though it is also a romance tale at its heart. This is a bit different in that it deals with a peaceful coexistence of vampire and wolf pack that are quite friendly. Of course there is a problem coming from somewhere and I will not spoil the book by divulging it. Good narration and plot come together for a quick and interesting story. I will say that the very end has two points that need to be brought to your attention: a major question through the story gets a bit of an answer and the book ends with a MAJOR CLIFFHANGER.

I enjoyed this story a lot. For me it was just a bit sad. I loved the dynamics of the wolfpack and how the members interact.
The alpha wolf really cares for his future mate and does his best to care for her. The emotion was raw and amazing to feel. Aside from having supernatural wolf powers that I can't have, I could relate to almost all the characters perfect. It was a sweet supernatural romance. I now feel I need to listen to the next book in the series!

The interaction between the H/h.
I am not sure that there is one that would work. This story has some strange twists and interactions in it. many of them made me sit up and say Ummm!
When the vampire kidnapped the h and made her go to sleep. Too funny,
I got this book via audiobook boom. The narrator was very good.
Does it make you feel better to no vote all my reviews? Sad. If it makes you happy have at it then. Hope it brings you a little joy.
What an interesting story, I very much liked the interaction between Mason and Darcy. I did find myself wondering how old they were, they felt young. That’s not a bad thing, but I kind wanted to shake Darcy a little with her insecurities.
Mason does a wonderful job putting those insecurities to rest.
When a threat takes one of the pack members from them the wolves have to find out who and what and why. I liked how they all came together to find the cause. I kind of liked that vampires were more than willing to help and be allies.
Also when the heck was this mating ceremony supposed to be I felt like, come on these 2 Mason and Darcy need to get on with their lives it feels like they are in limbo waiting and we find out near the end. Cliffy by the way! Grrr but it wasn't a big, big one or anything but it does make me want to listen to the next one when it comes out.
I very much enjoyed this narrator too, she did sound a little young but I think she did an overall good job.

I remember reading this way back when it was broken down into novellas and thoroughly enjoying them. I couldn't remember any of the plot but I remember Mason and Dev and something to do with Vamps, so seeing it on audio was awesome and I had to listen!!
The plot was fairly fast paced and exciting, though I do wish we had a little back story on Darcy and what her story is!! You are thrown into the story right from the start by Darcy being held at gun point and then a death happening, then some revenge, all within the first few chapters! Then it slows down a bit and you get a feel for the characters and their relationships, and then we are back in action with Darcy getting kidnapped and all the things that follow. I found the pacing to be good, if a little choppy.
Character wise, I liked them all and they were well written but I think they lacked a little development. Darcy is a strong female and is to be mated to the Alpha male, yet sometimes I felt like she was too different characters, one normal girl and the other an extremely insecure girl. They didn't really mesh and it made Darcy come across as odd. I liked Mason too and really liked their relationship.
In all, this was a fun, easy to read and enjoyable listen. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these characters again and look forward to listening to more from them.
Melissa Moran read the book well. She was easy to listen to and was very clear vocally, but I found that she didn't have a lot of different tones. I felt like she didn't differentiate the characters enough and it became confusing at times.

I enjoyed this audiobook, especially the chemistry between Mason and Darcy. Without giving away any spoilers, it is also a bit sad. The pack dynamics were interesting and I liked how protective the men were of their women. Darcy, no wallflower, really kicked butt when the situation called for it and I love strong heroines. Overall, a good listen. I would recommend this audiobook.
I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.
I'm an avid reader/listener very eclectic in my books. From classics too erotica to young adult, I love paranormal, futuristic and fantasy.
I enjoyed this story I would have given it a 5 but I hate episode books especially when they cliffhanger. Also I was confused several Times. I hate spoilers so sorry I won't tell you what I like about it.
I've always passed on buying something that ruins a book. I mean really what's the point if you already know what is going to happen.
