Publisher's Summary

Wolf shifter Jaime Farrow has a secret. And no one - not her Alpha, not her best friend, and most definitely not gorgeous Dante Garcea - can know the truth. She thinks keeping her little “problem” under wraps from Dante won’t be so tough; after all, he’s ignored her for years, despite her best attempts at flirtation. But though Jaime is determined to face her problem alone, nothing can stop her from wanting him....

As Beta, Dante is responsible for the protection and safety of his entire pack. If a wolf is hiding something that could endanger the others, it’s his business to know about it. So when rebellious Jaime begins acting strangely, Dante makes it his mission to find out why. But after years of keeping her - and his desire - at arm’s length, he is forced to confront the danger she poses to their pack…and the passion smoldering between them.

    Story
    "Starting to see a cartoon name calling pattern..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe. I enjoyed reading about a new couple, but the characters have the same personality and verbal characteristics as the previous book, which leads to no distinctive characters from book to book. I want to enjoy new wording, sayings, personalities, not a repeat of what worked in the first book.


    Any additional comments?

    The plot was the most interesting part of the book and the main reason I finished it. I really didn't enjoy the same verbal banter and sarcastic remarks the second time around. I think the use of cartoon name calling might be a theme in the author's books...which leads me to feel like the characters are acting juvenile in a very adult situation. Having mentioned the author's weak point in her writing, I'll say that the plot was interesting and unpredictable. The narrator approached the characters the same as the first book which is why the characters of the first and second books sound so much alike. I think the narrator fits this series but she should work on making each character distinctive since the author is writing the books the way she is. Overall I rated the book in the middle--not bad but not great. The narrator helped by performing the book and not simply reading it.

    Story
    "Had to stop listening"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, it's like listening to porn and totally grossed me out.


    If you’ve listened to books by Suzanne Wright before, how does this one compare?

    I listened to the first audiobook in this series and downloaded this one before I was even finished with it. She writes very depraved, graphic sex scenes, over and over and over in her books. I got through the first one, mainly because I really enjoyed Taryn, but after getting part way through this one, I just can't take any more of these sex scenes. As much as I want to know the rest of the story, I'm returning. It's just disgusting. I'm not a prude, I've read/listened to many other books with sexual scenes (not that I'm proud of that), and I wish most of them were skimmed over or skipped too, but this author takes sexual scenes to a whole new level with all of the domination and lot of regular, oral, and anal (blech!) sex. I just can't in good conscience recommend this book.


    What three words best describe Jill Redfield’s voice?

    Really, really good


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. It'd basically be porn.

    Story
    "Book or Porn...."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    So this is the second book in this series and though I really really wanted to like it, it fell short... by allot. I like the story line and the narrator but I got very tired of all the sex in this book. I understand having books with sex in it and I enjoy is as much as any romance reader but when there's just as many chapters with sex and dirty talk as actual story it gets old. I found myself more then once just skipping those sections completely. I think if you took out all the sex the book would would be less then half its original size. The whole book made me wish that the focus was on story and the personalities of the people then how good they were in bed. At the end of the book the conflict resolution and story growth made me more then a little sad. I hope Ms Write will write more but if her stories don't focus on the story I wont be getting more books from her. I want a good book. If I want crood sounding porn I'll go on the internet.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    That was it? Wheres the rest?


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    Very good narrator. Equally good with men and women. She went all in with her voices and made me feel connected with the character


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Wicked Cravings?

    Almost half of the sex scenes. That may have knocked it down to only one or two dozen.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story. I really did. I would love to read more of her work but I don's want to have to listen to sex all the time. I also would have liked to see more focus on the plot the sex scenes because at the end they never really handled it correctly. I'd give her anther chance but not much more with out her improving,

    Story
    "Sarcasm at its best!"
    What made the experience of listening to Wicked Cravings the most enjoyable?

    I loved,loved, loved this book. The best part for me was the narrator. Jill Redfield is awesome. I could not stop listening the characters are unique and funny and you can't wait to hear what comes out of their mouths next. Her pet names for characters are so funny. The story line keeps you interested and wanting more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    One of the best parts for me is the dialogue between Greta and the female characters. Oh how I wish I could uses some of their lines on my mother-in-law. Here's to dreaming:)


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

    I could not stop listening Jill Redfield does an amazing job bring the characters to life. She delivers the sarcasm lines in a way that has you laughing out loud. My family thinks I am loosing my mind:)


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

    I also loved the birthing scene. I burst out laughing as it was not a typical all is beautiful, sunshine and roses. But it also was not typical cursing your husband either. The author puts her sarcastic spin to make it hilarious. Even the sex scenes are written with humor. Everyone loves those scenes but it is nice and refreshing to have sarcasm brought into it so that it keeps you hot and bothered with a smile on you face.


    Any additional comments?

    Feral Sins was my first read by this author and I raced through that book too. I highly recommend this book, as well as the first book, to anyone who likes a strong woman and a lot of snappy dialogue. The only down side is that we have to wait until 2014 for the next book. I hope that is not the last in this series as there are so many characters that could have a great story. Happy listening.

    Story
    "PHOENIX RISING !!!!"
    If you could sum up Wicked Cravings in three words, what would they be?

    I liked that there was continued interaction amongst all of the characters. I liked that the first book moved seamlessly into this one. I also liked that there was a lot of emotion, hot steamy explicit sex and there were stories within the stories, but all came together in the end.


    What other book might you compare Wicked Cravings to and why?

    I am very much interested in this author and her version of "Shifters". I am anxiously awaiting the next book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Yes. The author explains the difference between straight human and human shifters such that it is plausible as well as a different spin than I've read before. I like Suzanne Wright's spin.


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

    Nothing. I think she did an excellent job. The male voices, especially Dante's was great. All of the different tenors of Dante's voice depicting anger, dominance, grief/sadness, lust, even his laugh she did a great job with. The different female voices were also done superbly.

    "Fun and sexy!"

    Suzanne Wright did it again! The second book in her "Phoenix Pack" series is excellent. I loved the first book and hoped the second would be just as good. I was not dissapointed. I think she is a very exceptional writer in the PNR genre and is very great at writing books with both a good paranormal story and romance.
    This book contains a very dominant alpha male, a kick-ass female, a excellent story and some very hot and steamy scenes.
    I think the narrator Jill Redfield does a really great job and makes the characters believable.
    If you liked the first book "Feral Sins", you will absolutely also like this one and I think it is well worth the credit.

    Story
    "Can't play with the big dogs"

    I am going to review Feral Sins and Wicked Cravings together since they are both available on Audible right now. Also, they are basically the same story - only the H/h names are different.

    I really like erotic romances with sexy alpha males. After reading so many 5-star reviews for this series, I couldn't wait to get my credits so I could get these 2 books. My first listen of Feral Sins was probably a very hot 4-star experience, so I got Wicked Cravings, too.

    After listening to each book a second time, I realized that these books are not very well written (in addition to being the same story recycled). The clumsy writing caused Jill Redfield's performance to suffer (compared to her performance in the Crossfire series).

    Her performance was hindered by horrendous sentence structure throughout the book. It seemed like she couldn't make sense of what she was reading from time to time. Her recitation was awkward in many places, which made listening to these books a bit unsatisfying. When the sentences don't flow properly, I get distracted trying to figure out what is actually being said. Consequently, I have to rewind and listen to those passages again so that I can stay in sync with the story. This is very frustrating when you listen to an audiobook.

    Another thing I noticed about Redfield's performance was that she lost her characters' voices from time to time (especially Dante). She definitely has a good range of voices at her command, so I can only assume that the poor writing was making it difficult for her to stay in character as she was reading.

    The sarcasm was a bit too much. It's fine to use some witty snark from time to time, but most of the sarcasm in these 2 books was very childish and got extremely boring. The pick-up lines that Dominic used were also overdone. These 2 issues made me feel like I was listening to books written for teens, which was in sharp contrast to the sexual content of the story.

    As for the story line, it was okay the first time around, but when I listened to Wicked Cravings, I felt cheated. It was obvious that Ms. Wright developed a formula (and not a very original one at that) and just changed a few details for Wicked Cravings. Even the "hot, tight and wet" mantra was there in all the same places as it was in Feral Sins. Dirty talk is great, but have some imagination! Change it up from one book to the next.

    The characters were fairly well developed. I liked them enough to want them to have their HEA's, but I didn't feel tremendously invested in any of them. It would be a good idea to tone Greta down as time goes by. Maybe even let her die from old age.

    I will probably get the next book because I follow the "3 strikes and you're out" policy. Also, I know that if I really don't like it, I can get a refund from Audible.

    Would you listen to Wicked Cravings again? Why?

    Most definitely! It was definitely entertaining.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The women characters' wit. I love how they seem to dominate the story overall, even though both books for the most part are geared toward the strong male characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The conversation between Jamie and Shaya while in a drunken stupor. It was truly entertaininng.


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

    Most definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    I am eagarly anticipating the next installment of the series, Nick and Shaya's story!

    "Great addition to the series :D"

    This was a great story. It's a very good continuation of the series that started with Feral Sins. While I admit that I liked the first book best, this one was a close second and great in its own right.

    I really liked Jamie's character. She's smart and spunky and deserves a lot better than life has given her. Jamie joined the Phoenix pack with her brother (shortly after the end of Feral Sins). At first she shows an interest in Dante (she used to have a crush on him as a kid) but when he doesn't respond to her hints she backs off and figures it's for the best since she has issues that makes it difficult to get close to anyone.

    Dante isn't interested in a relationship, not just with Jamie but with anyone. He was too afraid that it would pull him away from his work and he didn't want to find his true mate because of this. To be honest, there were times in the beginning of the book that my good opinion of Dante (from the first book) took some beatings. He certainly has issues that cause him to suffer repeated bouts of (what I like to call) relationship dumbassedness. We do find out some of his issues later which make his actions make more sense which helps. Dante tried to ignore Jamie at first but when he realized he no longer rated her special smiles he found he missed them. When he saw her out with some other guy he just couldn't contain himself and went after her.

    Jamie and Dante do end up in a relationship but she holds back from him. She's convinced that sooner or later her secret will come out and soon after she'll die. She doesn't want to bring down Dante with her so she tries to maintain a distance so they don't imprint. Dante figures out about her condition but talks Trey in to allowing her to stay for now. Dante starts training her as he trains the enforcers in hopes that it'll give her more control in order to help her.

    Jamie and Dante have other issues to deal with as well...like a couple of Exs of Dante's that wont let up and Dante being a workaholic. Also, Taryn's pregnancy from the last book comes to term and she delivers in this book. OMG the delivery room conversation was so damn hilarious, it had me laughing out loud (literally)!!! There's also issues with a packmate that finds her mate but is rejected causing problems.

    Just when things seem to be going well for Jamie and Dante there's an attack on the pack and in the fighting Jamie has to shift. Unfortunately, once her wolf is out, she has issues getting back in to her human form. Her wolf wont trust anyone and wont let her shift back so she's stuck like this while Dante tries to help her. In the end a couple of things happen that combine to get her wolf to trust Dante and the story has a great ending.

    Overall this was a great book. I'm really loving this series and can't wait for the next installment. I'd recommend this book. 2 thumbs up! :D

    Where does Wicked Cravings rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really liked it - not as much as Feral Sins, Phoenix Pack but the characters are a spin off and its a good story


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

    I loved it when Jamie escaped and found herself with the help of the child which showed the true colours of another character.
